The view outside my front door as a waved hubby and T off to college and work at 0700 this morning!!! Very autumnal! She is loving college, well the subjects anyway. Seems happy, which is a relef.
I am off to the Wirral tomorrow, I have a funeral to go to. K is coming with me, well she is doing most of the driving, we will stop off at Worcester on the way up, to drop off alot of her things, then the plan was to leave her at Uni on the way back. Mmmmmm! I'm not sure that will happen, she is really 'anti' Uni this year, well I think its more who she is living with thats the problem! Its 'Freshers' week from Saturday so she does have another week before she 'has' to be there, we will see.
I haven't spent much time at the computer recently so I have not been blog visiting, will catch up next week, hopefully!
T had her first day at college yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed all the subjects she took. What she is finding difficult is the long day. She went out abit like a zombie this morning!!! lol!! Just got to move her body clock round!
Whilst I was at the shops at the weekend I was having a look round estate agent windows and found a house For Sale just round the corner from us, well actually a little bit further away...... but it is a small semi, council house type, built about the 60's, with small garden and it was on the market for £285950. I know we are in a terrace but ours is older (1870's) bigger bedrooms and bigger but thinner garden! So we have decided to get a valuation! Which means I have to tidy and 'clean' the house! So started yesterday, with our bedroom, down the top stairs, landing and Tori's room. K can do her own room, today its the bathroom and down the stairs to lounge and kitchen!! Two reasons to get the valuation, 1) to see if we coud actually afford next door! 2) If we can't, then we are going to see if we can purchase some land from them 'before' they go on the open market? Well we can but try!!!
Me, well odd really,having finished the tablets, I am feeling better, thank goodness! The odd thing is getting used to not having continual pain? I'm sort of wondering where its is and when it will be back. I have had this pain continually since February, latterly it was horrendous. The medication caused other problems which will not please the specialist! Now I occasionally get the pain, mainly at bedtime!
So now I am trying to build up my stamina, eat healthily and get fitter and lose some more weight!
I shall be away a few days this week as I have to go up north to attend my aunties funeral.
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
