3rd weekend in feb

a busy one it was as well

i tried to dig up a tiny bit of the concrete in my garden and was beaten by the thickness and the noise of the drill. so instead i buit 2 raised beds out of breeze blocks to try and give it a bit of character. I need to dig all the concrete out but there is just soooooo much of it. one day it will all be gone though!

so now i have 2 raised beds waiting to be painted and planted.

Ellie kindly made me eggy bread for my breakfast this morning and then all afternoon we were at leah's birthday party, even though her birthday was in dec. you wouldn't think 5 eight year olds could be so loud. now we are back home laine is asleep and the gardening programs are keeping me occupied!

melton, rabbit and work

I went to Melton yesterday for my brothers 30th Birthday, it was quite a nice affair :) Dinner was really nice, my brother seemed happy with his presents but less happy at having to have his picture taken with me.

The rabbit is seeming a little under the weather, seems a bit low, maybe he needs a playstation or something.

and.......... my work is busy, i think i may meet myself coming back quite soon :)

mobile phones and seasides

My mobile is doing my head in as it does not want me to send photo messages and as many times as i re-install the correct settings it tells me it doesn't want to. I'm going to have to ring orange and ask for help, not something I'm good at, phoning people or asking for help.

i like coventry but am mucho annoyed that it is smack bang in the middle of the thickest bit of the UK a significant way away from any seaside. this means to go and play with my bucket and spade and friend Elaine on the beach we have to plan a holiday. I have no plans to live anywhere but Coventry but wish the seaside could come a bit nearer :)

singstar 80's

singstar 80's!!!! I was born in the late end of the 70's so by the time I was in my teenage years and meant to be into the whole music scene the 90's were in full swing. However I love 80's music and so it stands to reasons that this evening I have been sat on the floor in front of the telly playing singstars 80's. I know I should really be ashamed but I'm not!

I love our caravan, I've seen a few on ebay but still like ours the most. It's just about the time of year that we can start planning the first trip away. Last year we brought the van in January, saved up for a car to pull it and bought the car in June. So for our first 5 months of caravan ownership the only only night spent in the van was in March in the back garden to "test" it out. The night turned out to be one of the coldest in 2006, I think we may have been lucky to survive the -5 temperature :)

Elaine wants to visit the seaside in Estelle (the van) and I want to go to a forest this year, be interesting to see if we manage both :)

Now I am peacefully looking forward to the weekend :)

Sore throat

I have a sore throat and have had for 3 weeks now, it is now much annoying. On the bright side I had a very large bowl of custard for my pudding which I very much like. Somedays I don't know how I stand the excitment

I love my garden!


I have been on holiday from work for 2 days, I've done all the bits of diy I wanted to so now there is no option than to set up a blog! I've been avoiding it but now the inevitable has happened.
In case anyone reads this my spelling and grammar are really rather poor so my apologies.


i am a happy bunny today, in august we went on holiday to folkestone and took a trip over to france for a day. while in france my digital camera decided to corrupt some photos. this upset me greatly as i don't remember things well and the photos would remind of my hols. anyway i downloaded a recovery program today and recovered all but 2 of them. i am a happy bunny indeed!

tuesday today

I quite like this whole blogging idea, makes you feel very much in control of something.
My biggest achievement today - Laine had her mobile stolen, boo hiss, but the lovely, and they were lovely, people at orange transferred her old number to an old sim card we had laying around and transferred the credit which was left AND gave her an extra pound credit. This makes me pleased with mysef.
I went to see my eldest grandparent on Sat she's 91, well 91 on Sat and really is doing okay for it. Lives alone in her own bungalow has meals on wheels and a cleaner to help out but other than that is fantastically independant, so much respect for her. She did scare Leah a little though when asking her age and I don't know how she heard 10 when Leah was saying 8 :)
