One more week. Oh joys only one more week before the school holidays are over! I can't wait to get back to normality. How are all the child carers be you mums dads or grandparents coping with it all? Stevie I'm so sorry you've lost your quiet day:I guess children never see "I'm sorry I had intended on spending my day bathing in cammollie lotion and applying cold glasses of g&t to the bites" as an excuse to get out of having the grandchildren.
Having a not so relaxing day off: the dog is in the grrr books (will NOT stop chewing his poorly foot so it wont heal) and is under strict instructions to REST and STOP WALKING ON IT from the vets...
... the vets failed to tell us how you stop a puppy from bouncing all the time unfortunately (and all the stuff they tell you to use to repel the dog; yeah it turns out he LOVES the smell of TCP!)
Fortunately the neighbours are.. quite possibly demolishing their house from the inside (cue lots of dog worrying) and the sun has come out so that I can see how over grown everything is outside (it was so cold earlier I even thought THOUGHT about checking the heating still worked).
I rather wish I knew a nice country park with a lake and ice cream van nearby that we could drive over to and sit and watch the children throwing rocks at the ducks and generally making too much noise. Ironing the bedsheets doesn't have the same ring to it!
Oh well I'd best crack on with some more jobs. I hope you are all safe, happy, and well xx
