I iz back.  And ready for another round of WOYWW courtesy of the Darling Mrs Dunnit - go visit if you haven't a clue what I'm on about....


Just a quickie from me cos I'm not supposed to spend too much time on the 'pooter, having successfully buggered up my wrist from cleaning too much in the house move.  Yup.  T'is true.

So here you have it - what THE new room currently looks like.  It's a work in progress, you know.

And just to prove to the Fabulous Ms D, see, there really is a bed in there.....  (Last time Madame Dunnit saw the room, it was a pile of boxes....)

The last three weeks have seen....

Me off work for two and a half of them.
19 of the 62 Chalet School stories read.
LLJ and I singing our hearts out with Marlborough Choral Society
The snake moving off of pinkies and onto fluffies.  Seriously.  And if you don't know what I mean, you don't want to be asking neither....
The cats slowly getting used to us, and gradually getting less scared of the dogs.  One of them will even tip toe past them to get to food now.  Provided they are asleep. 
Lil Miss B getting herself grounded.  Twice.  And at the tender age of 11... what joys may yet be to come...
My mother visited.  She gardened.  She's 80.
The big red beast we call our MPV has died.  We don't yet know if it's resurrectable.  Worst case scenario - new car.  Medium case scenario - new gear box.  Hopeful scenario - Mr B can fix it with a twiddle or two.
Me and BT nearly coming to blows - they cancelled the cancel and then nearly didn't give us broadband back and when they did it was with the wrong number....... I could go on but I won't.
War being waged with the Wolf spiders.  Urgh.  I can cope with spiders, but not en masse and brandishing weapons...

So there you have it.

I will try to visit you all this week.....

Monday's Musings....

So, here I am a week-plus on from having moved, and am back at work.  I've had a couple of days of crippling pain in my right arm/hand from too much cleaning, and am tired and emotional, but other than that it's all gone rather well.

Apart from Lil Miss B "losing" a jumper at school on only her second day.  We say "losing" because we think another child took it, but whether by accident or intent we can't say.  What we can say is that her art teacher instructed her and the rest of the class to leave their bags and coats outside the classroom for the duration of the lesson, and when she went outside at the end of it, her jumper had gone.  As you can imagine, impressed we are not.  Should it not turn up, the school will be requested to provide a replacement.  And lockers.  Irate Mum on the way....

Today, I am

• listening - to the sound of my work colleagues making zillions of calls.
• eating – leftover pasta for lunch - yum!
• drinking - Apple and blackcurrant squash, with a coffee chaser
• wearing - winter clothes - jumper, corduroy skirt, knee high brown boots!
• feeling - emotional and tired, it's been a hard 10 days.
• wanting - another week of holiday to get over last week, and maybe actually get the house square.
• needing - ditto above...
• thinking - that my lunchbreak must be nearly over and isn't it hometime yet??????
• enjoying - living in a village where we've been made so very, very welcome.
• wondering - if LLJ will forgive me for not having replied to her text on Friday!
• and the weather - is changeable with occasional scattered showers.
Hmmm, must do that more often!
