So, it’s that time of year again.
Having (usually) cure children, I made pictures and stuck them to wine bottles. That way the teachers won’t forget why they drink!
They are quite cute though. Didn’t get a decent pic of the bottles though.
But I thought they looked ok.
The thing is, I realised when I was putting them in bottle bags this morning that I’d bought low alcohol wine. Sorry teachers (in my defence, I didn’t know it existed!)
How I feel on Monday mornings…
Above (possibly a narrow bordered five spot Burnet moth?) was on a walk on the sea front today, and below was hiding with his/her friends on a tree next to school tonight.
Which, or course, I immediately shared on Facebook, tagging family members who wouldn’t be offended.
My Mother really liked it, so I edited it with some of my own pics… it’s not difficult to find my family being odd.
She wants it printed on canvas now!
Water won, electricity went away.
My new socket is wearing a clingfilm raincoat while I wait for a boiler engineer. Having a great day off work!
This has made me realise how OCD I am though… I have been/am very stressed because my routine is all of out order and I’m not going to get everything done. My ‘day off’ consists of – kids ready, school run, Asda, baby group, home, laundry, dishes, bins, general tidy, more laundry, hoover, 1st school collection, Asda, 2nd school collection, feed kids (I missed feed the baby lunch at some point too), dishes, laundry, rounding up for taekwondo… right the way through to collect weekly food shop at 9:30pm. It’s not much of a day off, really!
So, with no hot water and very limited electricity (3 plug sockets in the kitchen) I was a bit lost. I’m not daft enough to think this is the end of shit stuff happening (I don’t believe in bad luck, but if such a thing exists, we have it!).
Let’s just carry on and hope for the best!
