Time flies when you're having fun right? Right! I was having fun and by the time I sat down at night to check emails etc I was just too exhausted or totally uninspired to write anything. So here I am, ready for another dose of wafflemania!! :)
My big and exciting news for this week is:
- Jay and Emma are getting married on 7th March 2009
- On or very close to my birthday in October I am going to become a Nan (Grandma) for the very first time! It's ok, be happy for me, I am exstatic even though they planned the wedding before the baby but hey, worse happens!
- I have finally got projects in the pipework for the website (the totally neglected one!)
- I was sent an anonymous gift of £100 in cash. It was hand delivered so have NO idea where it came from
Life is looking good right now, ok so there are some disappointements and frustrations but such is life eh? I have much to be thankful for.
The house I was going to swap to has fallen through, not the end of the world although I admit to being disappointed but I know another will come along when the time is right. So right now I am redecorating this house and determined to finish what I start! 8am yesterday I was painting my toilet room and decided to use some of the 'gift money' to buy some blinds, dried flowers and new mats so I can finish the bathroom too. Still have most of the cash left so holding on to that for now.
Conversation with Charley yesterday:
Me: Have you seen the toilet? I painted it
Charley: No you haven't, its still white!
Me: I mean the room
Charley: Why did you say toilet then?
Me: Just did
Charley: Doh mum!!
Then walked off totally uninterested to his room!
Conversation with Charley in the car on our way to the Range in Cheltenham:
Charley: I like clouds mum
Me: Yeah they are pretty aren't they?
Charley: No they are blue
Me: Oh ok
Charley: Did you know they are different shapes?
Charley: Oh mum, do you know much?
I guess I need to go back to school!! :)
At the moment his current trends are as follows:
- Sea Cows

- My camera - Might have to add his own gallery here!
- Cookie cutter shaped sandwiches and toast
- Dumbo the movie
- Noah's Ark pop up book
- Slippers, and not just his own
I forgot the password for his blog, so I'm adding this stuff here cos I know I'll forget otherwise!! Lol
The you tube video I posted with Kirsten singing has got a lot of interest, more than I expected so THANK YOU to those who took the time to comment or email and THANK YOU to the three people who have offered to record her with professional background systems, she is totally excited at the prospect. I believe she is going to redo the song though, with less artificial spluttering at the beginning and better light! My girl rocks!! ;)
On that note I am off to work on my to-do list, it has 33 items on it right now...and that's just internet related that i'm overdue with! I will get there though, the power of the mind and sheer determination will rule!! :)
Probably back later. Don't wait around though in case i'm not. I can be very forgetful at times!! :) Just cos I dont particularly like blogs without pictures, I'm adding these for now:
Tillie ~ The cat that sleeps anywhere, eats everything, hides and just literally lives the free life!!
Queen of the sofa!! ;)
