    Beautiful sunny day here in the Midlands. Bit of a breeze so the washing should dry.

    I'm waiting for my eldest to come here. She's unwell and cant really look after the 2 year old so I'm on baby minding duties. I bought some water pistols so going to have fun with those in the newly mowed garden.

    Havent really done much else to report, hence not posting.

    Quiet weekend planned. Stepson off to his mother's, and hubby out Friday and Sunday night so I'm home alone with the tv and a bottle of wine.

    And next week will be interesting as have both the girls for the week whilst mommy goes away for her birthday. Plenty of early mornings and the school run, yikes.

    Enjoy your day

    Quiet day.. Just had a shower and a bite to eat.. Couple of spritzes of a nice aftershave (helps me relax) and slothing out on my settee debating whether or not I should get up to get the TV remote or just stay put and watch the rubbish which is currently irritating me!

    I'm having a breather in between looking after kids. I'm too old for this - the 2 yr old sure is hard work. I've walked about 15 miles just doing the school run.

    Waiting for computer club to finish so I can go fetch Hayleigh and then take her to see the lovely dentist.

    Hubby just given me £100 to go buy something useless. I'm thinking more bookshelves

    Enjoy the sun

    Wish someone would give me £100 to go buy something useless!. I shall assume you have lots of books (in which case they wouldn't be useless!)

    Whats the most useless thing anyone has ever bought!!

    oh boy believe me nothing runs faster than a toddler with something in their mouth and the grown up asking 'What you got there?'

    Also had an epic fail at the park - told the wee one to be careful of the small humpbacked bridge as it was slippy. She wanted me to copy her, so I did and fell straight on the ample derriere. Bruised ego too

    I'm looking forward to their mother being back and having a semblence of normality in Wolfie's world

    Morning folks

    Order restored in my house. Kids went back yesterday after 9 days. I'm shattered and going to go look at pretty things in shops as I dont have a couple of kids in tow.

    With my money I bought a uselesss bottle of perfume that I probably wouldnt normally buy as its expensive. And with the remainder and my shop browsing today there wil be a bookshelf if me and hubby can carry it to the car.

    Roast pork dinner later, hmmm.

    Enjoy your day

    Morning folks

    It's a bit overcast here in the Midlands. I've decided to use the good old tumble dryer instead of God's tumble dryer in the sky as I have a feeling it would still be wet upon bringing it in.

    I'm having a day of rest today Had the poor wee darlings again yesterday as daughter went to a funeral. So had a good old game of hide/seek (as Ava-May calls it). Cute as a button that one. Hayleigh tends to spend most her time attached to the Matrix and looking at stupid people doing stupid things with stupid computer games. (Yes YouTube)

    Tomorrow looking good too for a day of rest then wee ones back again Sunday for lunch.

    Oh well must dash off and text all the people I didnt last week due to having 2 wee girls. You would think the people I text might have texted me to see if I were Ok, no chance. Oh my what is the world coming to? Ha ha

    I'm bored.

    No-one around to play with both at home and on t'internet. Guess it's back to the book I go.

    And guess I should feed myself as the slave isnt at home right now.

    Enjoy your day

    I'm a duck, quack

    A week of rain so I've got wellies on. (Only reason I have them on is cus I'm too fat to pull them off so have to wait for slave to do it)

    Not doing much today, cant be bothered. Not even dressed, I'm in pjs.

    Book a short break in Torquay. Need it after the past couple of months.

    Consultant appointment is September so I may be further forward in the illness they think I have.

    Enjoy your day folks. If you have sunshine, you're lucky. Relish in it
