I'm feeling a teeny bit tired today. Wendy barked 4 times in the night to be let out, which to be fair was very good of her. Three times I managed to throw myself out of bed, stagger downstairs, fumble with the blinds, unlock the door and let her out. Once I didn't quite make it and had to deal with the consequences half asleep and dry heaving at 3am.
There's no rest for the wicked though, especially when it's a school day, so it was up at the usual time cracking on with all that needs to be done within that hectic school morning time frame.
On my list today was our bedroom and bathroom and I gave both a thorough going over albeit in a rather slow fashion. I did manage to get rid of a fair bit of stuff though and by the time I was ready to go to the tip Cherry was pretty full.
I also managed to go through a load of paperwork. The stuff for Number 38 isn't too bad but we have loads of paperwork regarding Joan. We managed to throw a carrier bag full away and the rest I can hide in the box files I bought from Wilko.
While I was there I also bought a new dinner service. A couple of side plates and a dinner plate have been broken recently so I needed to add to and although these don't match they're close enough.
As well as the jigsaw, Mum also gave me some money for my birthday and I chose this book from WHS. I like books like this. I'm not really into 'self help/motivational/go get it/feel the fear' type of reading, but I do love a gentle daily inspirational verse or two. The title on the first page is "Know We Are Always With You". Well, if one of my angels wouldn't mind popping down and helping out with the dog duties tonight that would be great.
We've just got back from visiting Joan. She was already in bed, fast asleep and snoring like a trooper. We've left her sweets on the bedside cabinet and we'll pop back again tomorrow.
The car looks like it's going to take a while. The engineer from the insurance company can't look at it until next Monday. We're supposed to be picking the caravan up next Friday. Im pretty sure that might not be happening because a) I don't think it'll be fixed that quickly and b) if it's a write off I'm sure we won't find another one in 4 days.
Right, I'm going to water the plants now, make a brew and settle down to watch an episode of The Disappearance. It's about a missing girl and is sub titled but I've really got into it. Get me, I'm such a cultured chick haha.
