  1. Brrrr, cold here! Average is low of 43°F to high of 55°F normally. It is currently about 45°F at 2 in the afternoon, low of 29 forecast! Thats local weather, not UK wide. Have had snow on and off all day between blue sky and sunshine. Nothing lying, but very cold wind. It feels so wrong!
  2. Some Easter pictures for those that need them or didn't get around to decorating themselves :)
  3. Just finished reading it and I really enjoyed it. For me it was definitely a page turner, I wanted to find out what happens next, and little girls kept wanting me to play with them ;) I used to read a lot, but now family and other priorities usually take over. Every now and then reading becomes the priority! I must say I focus on the story rather than writing style, but in this book nothing jumped out and made me think 'that wasn't good, it could have been written better.' I don't usually read historic novels,I like more modern day stuff I can identify more easily with. The title and blurb on
  4. Maybe they were just managing to hold off til you actually had a job, rather than when you didn't have that. So glad to hear you've finally managed to get a job, even if it isn't the perfect one
  5. We put up a summer house/children's play house this weekend. It is 5'x7', big enough for us to overnight in when it gets warmer. It is a Christmas present for the girls - they'll see the outside, but hopefully the the inside will remain a surprise until Christmas day (painted white, but full of rainbow/colourful accessories). PILs questioned whether this was the best time to put up a shed...perhaps not, but not an impossible time, and better than closer to Christmas! Did the base last weekend and the house this weekend. We were very proud of our work, sister and I, having never put a shed up b
  6. They slept through the night!!! Whooohoo! Had pizza delivered for supper, and ignored laundry. A better day! Also had my eyes photographed (annual thing), and tidied the garden ready for the cold. Tomorrow I'm taking dressed up girls to Ikea and picking up my sister and niece from their vacation before we go to a pumpkin party at church. Carving pumpkins and then story and pumpkin soup supper. We might stop by my friends for a quick treat, but otherwise my kiddies are too young for more, and pumpkin party is a great alternative.
  7. We're home. We had a stressful and unrest full vacation. Drove 7 hours or so including a few toilet breaks on Saturday, up to the North Yorkshire Moors. Was supposed to take less than 6, but had roadworks, and then the sat nav redirected us along a different route along little Moore lanes in pitch black. Allana threw up Saturday night, and every night except Monday since, Natasha and I threw up Monday night, Tuesday we drove half way back to spend a couple nights in a restful hotel, only for hubby Chivs to throw up last night and for Natasha to have a temp. She was better this morning, but we
  8. Sounds like great fun Kathie! Natasha and I baked this afternoon, made 2/3 of salted caramel millionaires shortbread (they're in the fridge waiting for us to do the chocolate layer tomorrow) and chocolate or chocolate and cherry cupcakes. She even ate the cherry ones, which we served with whipped cream for pudding after supper. Invited to in laws for lunch tomorrow, so we'll take the rest along for then.
  9. I've been debating what to do about the kitchen in my Fairfield. I don't want an old one, want a nice and modern one, but the ones I can afford are too boxy/clumsy looking with bits out of scale. Then my daughter found a plastic half broken trailer in a box of stuff we were given to look at on the way to the charity shop, and it has a kitchen in it! A Nice and modernish one Now just have to see if I can get them out without breaking them, and then probably paint them a more acceptable colour. Maybe this'll be the nudge I need to get going again (I keep looking for that nudge.....) Allan

    Oh, I love the hearts trim!!
  11. End of summer is approaching fast! Chris is back at work after his summer off from teaching, I'm off this week to look after the girls before nursery term starts next week, and it has gotten much colder this week. Allana is just about 11 months old now and has done fine in the nursery taster sessions. Both girls will be going two days a week, and grownups will both do part time work to cover the rest of the days. At the moment there is no routine for me at work - I'm here, there and everywhere. I hope they find me regular branches soon. Wouldn't be so bad, but over the last four weeks I've bee
  12. Had a mad very tiring week at work, all nearly 10 hour shifts, extremely busy, including 30 hours worth of work in 2 10-hour shifts when our double cover pharmacist was pulled. So really looking forward to a day off tomorrow, and should be a good one: a good friend of ours had his first novel published in June and is doing a book signing at his local bookstore tomorrow. So we're excitedly going to that. Then out for lunch and drinks with him before shopping, and in the evening out for dinner with many good friends for one of their leaving dos (she's off to Canada next week!) And the girls
  13. Oh I was so hoping someone would volunteer to come stay with you Deb, and honestly thought someone would. I'd have come myself if it were possible! What a great family you (we) have
