    Morning. It's overcast here and by the looks of the sky rain!! The house is empty so will get the upstairs cleaned up and everything in its place... Will then put a wash load on and prep dinner. Minted lamb chops with garlic and rosemary sautéed potatoes and veg. I've started a blanket for Charlie in crochet. Only doing it in DC as that's all I know as I feel I need another project in between to keep me interested. 3/4 way up the front of my cardi. Finally picking up the needles ABIT more after all the bleaching and washing! Hands red still dry :/ Tracey. Sounds calm your end BBL

    Afternoon ladies. The boys are on their leap pads which is educational! Pork chops with rice and salad for the the boys this evening, and steak, SW wedges, corn on cob and salad for the OH and I. I've started my first ever crochet item. I thought I'd be a wimp and start with a blacket with one stitch DC. Something g I can do as a break from my cardi. The match is on this evening so no doubt what will be on the box this evening. Goose fingers crossed your friend remains safe! Suz- I can relate I gave up smoking and alcohol a couple days ago. Stakreem. I'm glad your on the mend. BBL

I'd be scared like you to. I hope everything is ok now? Suz- I know all about in feeling you should record your voice. Puffy the boys do drive me Barney at times. Goose- your dinner sounds lovely!!!! Sounds like you have had a lovely day. Eliza- you do make me laugh is that in reference to me saying about Charlie's finger? No doubt it will be the first of many!!!

    Wilting Wednesday

    Afternoon ladies. I've done the bits I was supposed to do, but when it came to knitting I konked out for well over and hour with Aaron next to me. I just feel so drained lately, no oomph, and throw in heartburn all day and well I'm a little fed up!!! CN- I just realised! They cancelled it AGAIN! Tracey- sounds like your having a fab day. I hope you found a wool shop. Goose- sounds like you've had a fab day x Knit&flee - love a lay in what did you get from the postman then? Suz- fabric sounds great.

    Morning. The boys are back at school today Jake has a trip to a canal, which makes me feel uneasy!! Can't help it so gave strict instructions. Sit on the inside of the boat, no messing around near water etc. I've also had to redress Charlie's fingers and send him in with a note! About not doing P.E and that he can. It get it wet. Sent him in with hand sanitizer to use. I'm cleaning down the kitchen and bathrooms again then Hoovering, but other than that I'll be finally picking up my needles after a couple days and cracking on with my cardigan. Halfway up left front. Looks great the blacker Susie. I must try crocheting again. Send some sun here. It's cold and overcast . Oh and I have been creaming my hands LIKE MAD LOOOOOL

    Morning My middle boy has threadworms!!!!! So the whole household had to be treated with medication. So having to keep boys off till tomorrow. I've spent all day yesterday wiping down sides, door handles, bleaching everything in sight! Hoovering of mattresses, washing bed linen towels and cleaning toys. I'm a very miserably FIona today. Already this morning bleached handles and the rooms down stairs didn't take as long. Washing sheets and Hoovering mattresses again this morning. Etc etc etc etc etc etc waa waa waa. To top it off Charlie tripped over the bleach bucket and somehow caught his finger between the bucket and handle causing the handle to jam under the lip of the bucket. I didn't think anything of it apart from being badly bruised, but this morning it's ballooned and looks really sore!!! So Andrew is taking him a&be this morning ( Eliza- your finds sound great. Glad your enjoying your holidays x

    Well we have been a a chatty bunch this morning Sun is beaming in stanmore. Took the boys to school/nursery in school shorts and tops leaving their jumpers at home. Lotion on, hats on, and pack lunch made...Then I walked in my summer dress, sandals and big shades (yes it was warm enough) to the supermarket and picked up a few bits. Home, upstairs tidy two loads of washing on the line... Just a quick tea break then downstairs tidying. Will put the boys pool up and fill it so its warm betime they're back from school. Then BBQ with my SW burgers as I had quite a few left over from last batch to which I decided to freeze.
