Just checking in....

I am still walking, breathing and driving 50 miles a day... thought I had better just pop in and let you all know that I am still around! lol

I won't bore you with all the dreary details as I am fed up with mythering on about it... but I have to be quick as Daniel needs collecting at 12:50 and it takes 15 minutes to get there...Daniel has 2 more weeks of half days and then he starts full days.... to be honest he's ready now... but I do love the way he runs towards me with his arms spread wide saying "Mu-u-m-mmy!" little things like that make my on off day almost bearable...

The sun is shining outside and I am pondering what to do for the hour and three quarters before picking up Jamie.... we have had a lot of rain and everything is very wet... I suppose I really aught to come home and start getting tea ready but the blue skies and sunshine are calling me to be out in the fresh air recharging my flat battery...

I have been creating so I will take some pictures later and post them... 

and a little thank you to Mother of Purl for dropping me a line through Ravelry... 
I suppose if I change my perspective things will eventually look up.... just need the umpf to get up and make that difference in my life... and perhaps if I just accept the cost and the travelling and the tiredness then it might become easier... ;D

One quick funny though!

I did a big Chicken roast dinner yesterday and as I took the chicken out of the rottisserie and laid it on the carving plate Daniel came into the kitchen... he poked his nose over the edge of the counter top and stared intently at the chicken.... then with a inquiring voice he asked
"is that chicken dead?"
I heard Mr P choke on his cup of tea in the lounge and I answered
"yes, its dead...
whereupon he inquired...
"why have you chopped off its feet and head?"
I told him that they are like that in the shop where I bought it and that we don't eat the head and the feet, his reply was 
"oh... we only eat its body don't we?" 
and then he told me he didn't want any, he'd just have some yorkshire puddings and peas and sweetcorn.... 
I realise yorkshire puddings are usually served up with beef but this young man would eat them for breakfast if he could! lol
well my alarm has bleeped on my phone... had to start doing that as I fell asleep one morning a week or so ago and was 15 minutes late picking him up!
woops!

Hey - glad to hear you are still around. Sorry your daily life is such a BORE at the moment with all the travelling around and fragmented time. Hopefully it will improve soon somehow.
Take Care

I am glad the little fellow likes his yorkshires....... a man of taste obviously! Re the chilli jam on my post.... it is pretty hot as my other half grew really hot ones. Oh, and I would say a definite "yes" to picking up your pencils and a sketchbook again. Go on............. :O)

Hi Alex
It sounds like you have a would-be vegetarian on your hands ;-)
So pleased to see you here, and I hope you will have time to post, briefly, amidst all your long driving and busy stuff...
And I hope you are crochet-ing and crafting like crazy, as it always helps, doesn't it/ - to calm us down when we are so busy and pre-occupied.
Take care dear - I'm sending you a big hug,
D x

I cook a roast dinner every Sunday and i do yorkshire puds and stuffing whatever meat we're having. If i don't i have three very unhappy men.

Tom's girlfriend is doing an animal care course at college and saw a pig go to slaughter so she won't eat pork now. I don't quite understand how it can be 'animal care' when they sent a pig to it's doom but hey-ho!
