Back to Normal! (I hope!)

Gosh such alot has happened since my last post! Mum has returned home and I am exhausted, she is not the easiest woman to have in your home. Don't get me wrong I do love her, just find it hard to live with her. Unfortunately being a seafarers wife she has spent a considerable time alone, Dad died in 1982 so she has been living on her own since then, and has become exceptionally selfish, expects everything to be worked around her, we drop everything to do what she wants, when she wants to do it!! I used to have to battle against it when the girls where younger, but now I grit my teeth and go with the flow! When she and B got together(if you remember he was my godfather, so we have known him all our lives, this is the girls adopted 'Gramps')she improved slightly, but my goodness she can be very critical and cutting with her remarks!!! Hence no blogging!!!!

We moved Kathryn out of halls yesterday and she took mum home as she is doing work experience with her adopted 'Gramps', he's has his own estate agency, something Kathryn has always fancied doing! So her room is returning to normal!!!!

Tori went to the hairdressers for her practice 'put up'! She wanted a period look and I think the hairdresser did a great job

that is the necklace she will be wearing, (well there had to be black somewhere!)plus she has some opera length black gloves as well! Even after she brushed her hair it still was all wavy, she loved it, because she/we have never been able to get a curl to stay in her hair!!

So now I play catch up on the washing. We where supposed to be going to dismantle the 'bargain greenhouse' today but hubby has had to go into work. Fortunately the couple who own it are in no rush to have it taken away!! So hopefully next weekend! I have been buying off Ebay again, one or two or maybe even seven plants!!!!! But all at bargain prices of course!

Right I'm off out to play catch up in the garden, it may take a while to play catch up on your blogs but I will!

See you later!

Isn't it funny that we live with our parents all through our childhood, and as soon as we have lived alone/away we realise we could never live with them again!!! Love my mum to pieces, she's the most generous lovely person. But by goodness she can drive me mad!!!!! :lol: Was the sock calculator any good, if you want a proper pattern I've now found one I have a spare of so can post if you want...

My Mum drives me absolutely crazy after 3 days in her company...the feeling is mutual! We just can't spend too long together or one of us will snap!!

Tori's hair looks wonderful! I may need to pop over here and ask you both for some tips in the next couple of months!!! :o)

Hope you are having a relaxing weekend :o)
