Then I gave away some cooking and gardening magazines.
The first Charity shop refused them.
The second Charity shop said Yes Yes Yes.
Now to use my lovely tea set....
Cheers everyone

The Old Way....

We changed  Internet provider.
Then as soon as we are connected up
The whole system goes down
So no blog entry yet again
Now to go back to the old way of blog writing.
 More time on my hands

A Bit Windy Around Here

After giving slices of the sponge cake out to friends
It was nice to get home.
Until I noticed something bizarre had happened...
Who moved the kid's play house????
Must have been some wind!

Walking Amongst The Gravestones

It's been a quiet Sunday.
We got lost trying to find one Church we wanted to look round.
We managed to look round two other graveyards.
The first graveyard was in Bidford On Avon
The second graveyard was in Astwood Bank
The second one is where my Nan & Granddad is buried
The sun was going down.
It was getting cold.
We got home for a nice cup of tea and slice of cake...

Welcome To My Pink World

After my first shift of the day,
I had a drive to Webb's garden centre in Wychbold.
I already had bought some lovely pink tea set on Sunday.(see my other blog for pictures)
Now I have the pink tea set for one with 75% off.
To finish off my pink kitchen.I bought a  pink washing up bowl.
So to ease my new pink cup in slowly,
I used it for my mid morning coffee with a bout of  vitamin C!

Brass Monkey Time!

We had a power cut  for an hour and half yesterday dinnertime.
After getting home to start making the table cloth  for The Kings & Queens table,
The temperatures started to drop.
The radiators didn't come on.
After phoning the emergency call out service.
They said they haven't got a spare circuit board for the boiler
So last night we were all wrapped up like a bug in rug.
I even got to wear my Purple Rabbit onesie.....

Let Them Eat My Cake!

I had a mid morning meeting for my first job.

No one said no to my cupcakes.
I had some left over,
So I took some over to my dad's.
He didn't say no either...
He just dropped the cherry !

Snow Angel Alert!

I woke up to see a thin layer of snow.
It is so cold, it's nice to cuddle up with a very warm hubby at the weekends
No sign of Mr Rat,
Washing machine on overtime.
Fingers crossed no more snow,
Making  a snowman in snow I like.
Driving in snow is different matter ;(

Chewy Time

Hip Hip Hooray It's Friday
One job to do.
Sun is out, but it's so cold!
Have had the Pest Control Officer out, some of the poison he put down has been eaten.
Hasn't stopped Mr Rat eating through the 4th waste pipe.
Mr washing machine is going to be on overtime for the next 24  hours.
Hope Mr Rat like soap suds!
Now for some dancing...

Not cooking or baking this time,
But making a few cards,
Two Birthday cards and a Thank You card.
Just got Friday, one job to do and then it's the weekend!
Hip Hip Hooray!

Crowns Galore!

Today we were doing out first King & Queens table at Dinnertime.
10 lucky children would sit at the table with crowns, and chocolate coins.
So I spent an hour making, stapling the crowns together.
The kids enjoyed themselves.
Every week we have 10 different children sitting at the table!

Where Is The Love?

I was doing my job as a Lollipop Lady
Then suddenly a car parked on the zig zag lines outside the school. 
I told the woman driver she can't park on the lines
She gave me grief.
I reported it to the school.
The woman driver turned up, and in front everyone
called me a Racist.
I shook my head. 
The Headmaster trying to defuse the situation.
Did point out to the car driver, she wasn't suppose to stop on the Zig Zags anyway!

Gordon's......Alive!

We did a early Spring clean of the Dining room
Nice & tidy until....
I heard chewing of monkey nuts coming from behind the book case!
We move & empty the book case.
Chocco the hamster has been living on mini-rolls and monkey nuts!
Will have to move the massive cupboard at some point!
Hubby tried to put all my books back on the book case!
Poor love, loads of books left over.
I will attempt to redo it later.....

Play Time With The Mop

Doing my normal Domestic chores,
On goes the washing machine.
Then I have a lake forming in my kitchen yet again.
Couldn't turn off the washing machine.
So out come Mr Mop & Mrs Bucket.
This elusive rat that keeps appearing,
only chewed through the waste pipe yet again.
We have set a trap if he tries to come back tonight via that pipe again!

Friday Madness

I had a bout of Friday madness.
First I had a car driver give a V sign in response to me trying to get him to stop!
"And to you I shouted to him" very loudly!
I bought something off EBay,
What a surprise, the sender didn't put enough postage on!
Off to my Royal Mail Delivery Office
I was given my large letter.
I sniffed it, and said,"No money in there then!"

Best China Time!

Woke up to wind and rain...
I am going to get wet this morning!
Car drivers being a pain on not stopping.
It was still dark at 8.30am!
By 11am the sun had come out...;)
My house is nice and tidy....
Got the best cups out for the V.I.P that is coming round later....

Ode To My Henry

It feels like I am married to my Henry.
Last night I used him to vacuum the Dining Room.
After shoving a air fresher up Henry's bottom
Where Henry goes, that lovely smell follows...
Ran out of time to play with Henry this morning.
So out he came after I had finished my second job.
No one can say that my Henry gets chance to grow cobwebs....

Roller Skates!!

First day back to work, and back to school my kids go.
The weather was being kind to me, no wellies for me!
I growled a few times to car drivers who were unwilling to stop,
Soon off to second and third jobs today.
I better do my shoelaces up tight on my roller skates!

Stinking Time

I am making the most of this Sunday, a warm bed & extra warm hubby.
As from Tuesday, it's back.....
The school's are open, and I'm back balancing 3 jobs....

No worries about me putting in for divorce on Divorce Monday (tomorrow).

They're Coming Down On Me

Today was the day they came down on me.
The Christmas tree that is and decorations.
The house has been stripped of every bit of tinsel & bauble
Got my chair back now from the Xmas tree....
Now for my mate Henry to do his business...!
