One of my favourite animals! You know what, I'm enjoying this?
Some more good news is, when hubby saw his boss re:- his holidays, he asked to carry over the remainder that won't be used to next year. His boss said no he couldn't carry over that much, so his leave has now risen to 'five weeks'! How cool is that!!! And he still carries over 6 days!! How does he manage to get so much leave, he has been working with this company now for 20+ years and after so many years work you get an extra days leave for every year you work for them!!!
Been busy helping T with her coursework. It appears that as well as she is doing at college there are still some issues that she, according to the support unit, are putting her at a 'serious disadvantage'! We are having to make a separate appointment to see them to discuss a way forward!
I have also been busily sewing my crimbo cards, remember the pic days back, well I am only managing one a day if I'm lucky, but they are lovely when I finish them and I'm really pleased!!!!
This is fun! I'm being very good and apart from looking at all the add-ons when I first opened it, I haven't since.
I had hoped to get my outdoor decorations up this weekend, but sadly I don't think that will happen! Hubby has a cold (to you and I), Man Flu (to him)! I just hope I'm well enough not to get it again. He has been working so hard, had two very big implimentations at work and provide the last one, implimented yesterday went well, he has two weeks to close the project down, then, three weeks well deserved holiday!!!!!
I haven't alot to blog about as I've not done too much, sorry!
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
