Well only just! I am shattered sweeties, absobloodylutely shattered. I guess I will have time to blog properly again once The Leg has healed. In the meantime I am running round like a blue-arsed-fly-on-speed without a minute to myself. I fall asleep in front of the TV early in the evening and then just about manage to crawl into bed before seeing if anything is required by The Leg who has taken up permanent residence on the sofa in the bar (yeah handy that, not far to hobble to the beer fridge!). I have had a sore throat and weird headaches for the past few days too. I was beginning to think I was having a stroke or brain haemmorhage until I spoke to mum who has the same symptoms. I guess we have the blog bug that Trac and Lettuce have had. So do forgive me if I am not blogging or commenting regularly but life is hectic just now.
Jasmine leaves school tomorrow. It's her last official day. After that she just goes in to do her GCSE's over the next few weeks. This means that I have successfully brought up a child to adulthood ready to release into the big grown up world. Awwwwww my baby girl. I am so proud of her.
It's Alfie's 6th birthday next week. I have organised a big-bouncy-castle-in-the-garden-party for him. I tried to get him to go to an organised party location this year saying that Daddy has a sore leg and he won't be able to organise races and I will be too busy cooking the party food but he wouldn't have it. He said 'but you can do the races Mum and Bibis (GOW) can do all the food". He is a child who never sees problems only solutions, how could we refuse? He had such fun last year and our garden is more than big enough to cope with many children. Mum and I had booked that weekend to be the big 'giving up feeding' weekend and so we have had to postpone that for another few weeks as we wouldn't be able to cope with both. Lizzy has another few weeks respite!
Great bootsales lately. My biggest success was a couple of vintage flight bags that had never been used. I decided to keep one and sell one on ebay. It finished today and made a very healthy profit indeed. I have to say it is so much nicer not having to look for fabric to sell. I buy now mainly for me and the family and anything else is a bonus. It's still a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon even if I don't buy anything.
Exeter was great, the sun shone as per usual (it always shines in Exeter). I had my roots done and had lots more blonde put through my hair to lighten it up for summer. I think I am growing it again. Great RT. Bought some pretty things from Hennes and Topshop and went to Starbucks twice!! I thoroughly approve of the branch. Nice music, great decor, squashy seats and lovely cappuccino. We had lunch sat in cathedral yard, a yummy sandwich from Michael Caines' cafe.
Right I must go. Nice talking to you all again. I miss you xxx
