 When the wind outside is howling and the rain is lashing it's nice to hunker down with the boys and watch a film by cande light.
Even if the film is Horrid Henry and it's the fourth time you've seen it in a matter of a few days!

 I haven't done anything this month blogwise, well hardly anything. So I thought I better pop by and let you all know that I'm still here and also send my apologies for my lack of comment leaving.
 Work seems to be taking up all my time and although I love it and my workmates are great by the end of the day I am just totally shattered. My days are still exactly as they were before with cooking, cleaning, washing, tidying up,school runs and looking after the boys but most of them also now have five hours a day of standing up serving customers.
Some days I will be on my feet for nearly twelve hours bar two ten minute bus journeys so by the time I sit down they throb a lot.  It is getting better though and I think by the time my contract ends at Christmas they will be fine, which would be typical.
Today I had a day off, so after dropping the boys off at school I took a walk around the park. I watched the squirrels play and listened to the birds through the mist. I've done a bit of knitting and cleared the back yard of the summer plants along with the daily chores but now my eyes are starting to close and I feel my bed is calling so I'll say night night and fingers crossed I'll be back soon .

 Honestly, the older I get the more forgetful I get. It's a standing joke here and even the boys take the mickey out of me.
 But last night's forgetful episode was a doozy. Now I don't know whether it was down to old age or the fact that I hadn't sat down since about 8am with a five hour standing shift at work but,,,,,,but ,,,, I forget to pick up Milo from school!!!
 Oh, the shame of it. I walked to school and got Gabe then walked home again. I was just about to put the key in the front door when my phone rang, it was Milo's teacher reminding me that a letter had been sent out last week to inform us that Tuesdays after school club had been cancelled. Luckily I know her so she thought it was quite funny. There was no way my feet could cope with walking back again so I took the car.
 At the minute I don't know if I'm coming or going and my head is all over the place so today I've had a day of rest, a day just for me. Well, that was after the school run, the shopping and the washing of dishes and clothes .
As for the flowers, a little something bought by me for me. They look quite pretty on the now tidy table don't they. My feet are still throbbing so I might just have to do the same tomorrow.

 You know when something goes wrong, like losing your cash card and you feel a bit bleurgh but you cope? Then something else goes, say your elderly cat foaming at the mouth constantly for no apparent reason which means an emergency trip to the vets.
 Luckily said cat is fine when an infected tooth is removed even though there is a hefty vets bill and she now only has three teeth left. On leaving the vets or should I say on trying to leave the vets the car breaks down. The exact same car which was just serviced and had its MOT the week before. A quick phone call to my dad to come and help us but we had to leave our car behind in a not so nice area.
My neighbour came to the rescue the next day, jump started said car and replaced the battery. The insurance quote came through which caused a mass choking but thanks to searching on the internet which managed to stay on for more than five minutes it was reduced dramatically.
Did I tell you Hub got a new I Mac two weeks ago, I don't think I did, well that's on it's way back .... Kaput so they say.
 Can you see the face on this tree?  Looks a bit like how I feel at the minute .
