Another beautiful day here at Number 38.
I had a good clear out downstairs yesterday and now I'm itching to get on with the Xbox room but I need Thomas back at school before I can go in there and get started properly.
There seemed to be wool all over the house so I've gathered it all up, sorted it out and boxed it up in one place.
I've been to Tesco to do a 'tide me over til Thursday' shop which cost nearly as much as my weekly shop at Lidl for only half the stuff. I also bought some rice to boil for the dogs. It seems to have been a sh!te few days all round here, literally and figuratively speaking and although the dogs seem to be coming round there's no miraculous recovery just yet.
Mum came down for coffee. It's her birthday tomorrow. She has few needs or wants so instead of the usual book, flowers, stationery that I tend to buy her, I'm taking her out for lunch or afternoon tea one day to the garden centre. She likes to have a look around and Amy and Thomas have made a voucher for her to buy some plants while she's there.
Mark is having a fantastic time shooting. He text me that they were using AK47's and working their way up! I have images of them rolling up the road with a deer strapped to the front of the hire car. Don't worry, no animals are involved :)
And that's pretty much it for today. Lots of sorting out and throwing away is on the agenda for this week. Paperwork especially needs looking at, ours and Joans. The amount of stuff we have concerning her is unbelievable. I'm off to look at Wilko's website now to see what pretty files they have to make the job a nicer one to do. Really I'd be better making a start but I have perfected the art of procrastination, so I'll leave it for now!
