Kathryn is packing for Uni at the moment and her room currently looks like this
Ok this is how it goes at the moment:
2 lime green boxes full of cups, plates, glasses, pan, and other useful kitchen stuff
grey bag infront of zebra: sheets, towels, tea towels, toweling dressing gown and teddies
red bag: clothes which I think will over flow into blue bag!
primark bag on chair: underwear
essence shoe box: 300 cd's to decorate the wall with
box behind: coat hangers
box underneath: food
under blue bag: another bag with ladies bits and pieces in!
this doesn't include makeup, jewellery, hairdryer, straightners, any shampoo etc, electric toothbrush, coat, walking boots, ooooohhh yes and the bag out of picture that is just FULL of shoes, handbags and belts, nothing else!!!!
We still haven't got the computer, (cos of her dyslexia only diagnosed Dec 2005, she is getting a computer from council)Kathryn phoned to find out where it was and it looks like it will have to be delivered to uni direct, which is probably just as well because it includes, computer screen, keyboard, mouse, scanner, digital recorder and printer!
We have had a chance to sort through clothes to be kept and clothes to be sent to charity shop. As she no longer wears thongs, and they can't really be recycled Kathryn decided to decorate my lounge with them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way if you think we have forgotten anything please let me know!!!!!!!
Mark is on a 'Bike Safe' day today with Wiltshire Police. He returned to biking after a 20 year gap and has treated himself to a 'Kawasaki 500' plus all the gear! He's been back on the road since July and was quite nervous before he left today! (in case they told him he was a rubbish rider!)
Mark commutes 44 miles a day just for work and to be honest the petrol costs have been astronomic and just on the school run I do 24 miles aday. So his bike is a money saving item????
Tori had a great day yesterday, she had some lovely presents :- a punchball and boxing gloves, a PS 2 game, 'Pink' CD, 'Fallout Boys' CD, a beautiful dragon ornament, a belt and silk scarf with a skull and crossbones on and a couple of other little pressies. She very much wanted just a family day, so we went to the cinema to see 'Cars' which was very entertaining and then out for a meal after. She's a funny sausage really, most '16' yr olds would not think a birthday with family any fun at all but Tori loved it. I do worry about how few friends she has but her phsychiatrist said not too, some people just don't need friends???????
I am a stay at home mum, due to a daughter with Neurological Diversity! I am too busy to get bored and how people fit in work I'll never know! I craft, sewing, knitting and anything else that takes my fancy. I garden and have dug up part of my garden for veg patches! I now have two greenhouses both heated! Plus a new jungle bed which I started 2007! This has really captured my imagination to the extent that I now own 30 Brugmansia Bushes/Trees and many other beautiful Exotic Plants, so join me and see what mischief I get up to whilst home alone!!!
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick the flowers in other people's gardens And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat And eat three pounds of sausages at a go Or only bread and pickle for a week And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry And pay our rent and not swear in the street And set a good example for the children. We must have friends to dinner and read the papers. But maybe I ought to practice a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple. by Jenny Joseph found here http://www.tonya.me.uk/fun/warning.asp
