It was Thomas' school trip today. They went to Madame Tussauds in Blackpool. Personally, I can't think of anything more boring than looking at waxwork models but Thomas seemed to enjoy it and recognised Morgan Freeman and Justin Bieber. At least he went on this trip. At his other school they went to the Pleasure Beach 3 years on the run and as he hates rides he didn't go.
They were allowed to take £5 to spend and when Mark picked him up from school the teacher wanted a word with him. Apparently one boy hadn't taken any money so asked Thomas if he could borrow £2 for an ice-cream which Thomas happily lent him, but then a group of children wanted to borrow money off him as well. The teacher was on to it pretty quickly but not before the first boy had bought his ice-cream lol. We've had to point out to Thomas that although he thinks he's only lent the money to the boy he might not actually get it back. If he doesn't then for the sake of £2 it's a valuable lesson about not lending money unless you're prepared not to get it back.
Still on the money theme I opened the 'save the difference' tin today. I've not put anything in her for quite a few weeks, but there was still £40.70 in there.
We also have a piggy that we feed with coppers and 5p's. There was £7.90 in 5p's which are in a dish on the windowsill to dip into when we go shopping, the 2p's will be taken to the caravan for the arcade and the 1p's I'll change at Tesco next time I'm down there.
We went over to see Matthew, Sophie and Sienna this afternoon. They'd had a bit of a rough night. After her 8pm feed she didn't settle until 1am. Matthew had a theory that if they kept her awake today she'd sleep tonight. Not sure how he thought he was going to go about doing that, but Sienna obviously wasn't playing ball and slept for the 2 hours we were there.
I'm crocheting a border around this fleece today. I've gone for cream and brown and think I'll buy a ball of orange to give it a zap of colour.
Amy has been to Manchester today job hunting. She was asked to fill in a couple of application forms and left her CV with a few stores. Tomorrow she's coming to Bury to carry on her search. Not sure whether she'll have any luck or not but she gets 10/10 from me for effort.
