Flibsey - glad your DD is better

We were up early at 7am today. DD was talking to me quite happily when she woke up and then was sick, then carried on talking! Shocked whilst I was running around getting bowls and stripping of her clothes & bedding, she was laughing as if nothing had happened!
She is going to her grandparents for the day today, so will warn them, just in case.

I am going to our local shops today:
The fabric shop to buy an oilskin tablecloth to protect our new table from grubby fingers and paint/crayons.
Hairdressers to get my hair cut. (if they can fit me in)
Pick up DD's magazine from the newsagents
Buy thank you cards for DDs to send to famly for her Christmas presents.
Get something nice for my lunch.

Tea will be breast of lamb cooked in onions (recipe from "The Good Cook" book)

A quiet day planned here today.

DD is still poorly, although she seems brighter now, she was waking up every 30 minutes all night so she is really tired now.
I have let her stay in her pajamas today and we are going to snuggle up on the sofa, watch tv and read some books together.

aww poor thing Sad I hope she starts feeling better soon.


I have just had some leftover cold lunch, cold goats cheese quiche, roast potatoes, savory cabbage, broccilli and carrots.

I've been out this morning pruning a small back garden for a elderly friend. I will go back tomorrow after lunch to do the same for her front garden.

today (thursday) I'm chilling until I have to pick sophie up from school, take her to the dr's, drop her back at school, go into town, pay the deposit for her birthday party to the bowling alley, pick up some bread and some quorn mince from holland and barret (gonna try wholemeal gluten free bread and see if my stomach can take that instead of standard wholemeal, which it can't cope with), get some boots shaper's chocolate bars (mint with dark choc are dairy free) and 2 spray bottles, 1 for making my own FryLite style spray, 1 for having salad dressing in. oh, and a jar of diet mayo. I then need to pick soph up from school, come home, do literacy homework, read with her, play with her, make dinner before jim has to get ready for karate at 6pm. once he's gone it's bath and bed for sophie, and I can then sit down and make her a pirate's outfit for tomorrow's pirate day at school, and write out her birthday party invitations.

I was having a pretty crappy day, the car is officially dead as a doornail, but james has found a much cheaper car to go buy as a stop gap. cheaper to run, more efficient on fuel, cheaper to own with road tax etc, and it's a hatchback.
while he went out to the bank to draw out cash to buy it with, I was cleaning. two letters dropped through the door. they're both invitations to bid on properties from the council! both nearly £400 per month cheaper han our house we're in now, both ours for as long as we need them, both well maintained.
one is in an excellent area with free parking and potentially a balcony, but is 1.6 miles from sophie's school. the other is in a crappier area, no outside space at all, permit parking but is near sophie's school. I'd rather potentially have to walk 6 miles a day for 5 days of the months (jim's shifts mean for the rest he'd take her by car) than live in the slightly bigger flat lol.

it's wonderful. we've been on the list since may 2011. the house we live in is destroying my soul, and the landlord is an utter crook.

I know we might not get the flat, but these offers mean we're going to get more offers. we're probably going to take the new car and have a gander at the outside of the one we want to bid on later on Smile

£4k pa less in rent. £360pa less in council tax at least. potential for eventually having a deposit to buy somewhere else.

the system DOES work. it's just slow.

Fingers crossed with finding a property flibsey, hope you get something that suits you soon.

I am a happy kitten this morning as my new stash of fabric has just plopped through the letterbox! So it looks like this afternoon is going to involve a lot of cutting. Today I've just been puttering round the house, dragged the broken bits of fence into the garage from the lawn amongst other household stuff. This afternoon I'm going to empty the pantry so I can paint it this weekend.

That's fantastic flibsey, good luck - at least you can feel there may be light at the end of the tunnel!

Taken the kids swimming today, DD had her new inflatable vest on (she absolutely refuses armbands full stop) and it gave her so much confidence - she even really enjoyed the waves. DS is a natural in the water but DD finds the whole thing a lot more disconcerting so really proud of how well she's doing. Think she's going to be achey later though. Sad

Must go sort tea out then it's bath night and will be doing some more of my patchwork tonight.

That's quite a nice bit of good news Flibsey, so hoping some of it comes to fruition. Do you make socks with your DPNs? I don't have case for mine yet, so they're all over the place!

We went to ASDA this morning to get just a few bits - ending up spending over £100 Shocked . They have their baby event on at the minute, so I stocked up on bath stuff, snacks, wipes etc. and also got a bed guard for when DD goes into her "big girl bed" Smile
Also got some 'whoopsied' ready meals to add to the freezer and DH bought loads of books, so that should keep him busy!

Then we went to Hobbycraft and got some craft bits for DD (and me Embarassed )

Finished reading my book (Michael McIntyre's biography) and started a new book.

DD and I bathed the dog just now - the dog was not happy!

Don't have much else planned for today, just relaxing and keeping warm indoors.

Today I'm going to be painting the pantry. Made a start yesterday and have to do the woodwork today. That's about it I think. It's quite cold but dry so I'm doing some laundry and hopefully that will dry - if not outside then inside, the heating will be on all day so I might as well make the most of it. I have a couple of library books to putter through and make a note of any information I want. If there's time I'll cut out some more pieces for my next quilt, might not get to that though.

Have a good day everyone.
