It occurred to me today that I had neglected to update you on my recent cinema visit!! Last Sunday, Amanda & I went to see ‘Up in the Air’ with George Clooney…Now….to say that this film lacked a beginning, middle & end is the only way I can be positive about it!! It’s only saving grace was George himself…but even so, I struggled to keep my eyes open towards the final scenes & was left thinking…is that it?!! This is maybe why I ‘forgot’ to comment on it earlier!!!!
Today I was supposed to have spent the morning with my good friend Karen…we were to have ventured out with our cameras on a walk near her home. But…we woke this morning to a generous covering of snow & below freezing temperatures, the roads were slippery & I passed two car collisions on the school run, so I took a rain check!!! Instead I blitzed my kitchen…washed down all the cupboard doors etc etc…& baked some cupcakes for the boys as Nathan had a friend from school home for tea tonight…Now, I have a glass dome that covers this cake stand & when Nathan saw them he asked who the teensy one in the middle was for? Bemused I looked to see what he meant…. How funny is that!!!
We had an ‘Even better than that!!’ moment this week….Lee went out to fill the car up with diesel & came home with a new gadget! It was reduced to half price in Tesco…
We are trying to drink more water ourselves as well as wean the boys off fizzy water…as much as anything to keep costs down!! We have had a filter jug in the fridge but that just took up too much shelf space, so when Lee saw this he had a light bulb moment!! We have it on a timer & we now have 4 litres of chilled, filtered water available throughout the day!!
I must share with you a photo of a boy in his natural habitat…taken moments after arriving home & still in school uniform…this is how Alex will probably spend much of his half term break…reclining in front of the TV with X-Box controller & TV remote within easy reach!! That’s if he can get through one last school day!!!
I guess at least I’ll know where he is…for the moment!!!
This Saturday is the Crafty Stash crop at Tempsford & I am looking forward to working on the class kit LO’s…the sneak peeks are very appealing & apparently there are THREE LO’s to complete…I usually only get one finished during the crop, so I’ll have to improve my game!! I’m off now to sort out my photo’s…colour or B&W??? Hmmmm?!!!
Finally…I have been inspired in my weight loss quest by a new friend in Blogland…Krissy…Do pop over to her blog & check out her story for yourself…I will be following her weekly ‘Weigh in Wednesdays’ & hoping to keep up!!
Wishing everyone a fab Valentines weekend!! xxx
