i had my first bbq today, we got a little silver bbq with our caravan so i bought some charcol and today tried it out with sausages for me and enisa (lorraine boiled hers for some weird reason) and a smoked haddock with mushrooms and pepper for laine. It took a while to get going and I couldn't find a lighter so had to use sparklers but it was worht the wait :)

I also gardened today, i love gardening it's looking tidy and ready for summer

garden rain

house warming at pooles last night vv nice

what a mixed day
up early to get the lawn mowed before work, was going well until the mower made a unhealthy sound and one of the blade disappeared.

I also put the new rabbit run together, rabbit will much like it

Off to work for a bit, not long, to meet a chap to talk about why we run some of the groups we do, all good

went to caribbean fesitval was okay but think it suffered from being moved to hersall common.

back home, rabbit got some quality outside time bless him, i chipped the plant i cut down the other day and have been waiting to dry out

leah and laine made things

had a nice tea and now am watching little miss sunshine

Today was Dennis' (grandads) funeral, sad day and a proper good bye for now. I am a bit wiped out but relieved it's over.
Ho hummm

hummmm important question

Training all day yesterday, meeting til 1pm today then cramed in as much work as possible this afternoon, pick laine up from work, then home to pick up a trailer for Ian, then to tescos to get security tag removed (they forgot first time)
Then trying on brown clothes for tomorrow (Dennis funeral) - black not good for my complextion, then shower eat and now computer.
I think I've asked most of my friends this; if one of the following had to disappear from existance which would you want to remain;
ham or cheese?

I'm surprised that more people than I thought say cheese. I say cheese :)

harry potter

last night went to see harry potter, i don't read the books so normally the film is the first time I know the story, not too scary this time which is good as generally harry potter scares me.

Productive day, claened out all the animals, cleaned kitchen and tidied a bit. Lots of friend around tonight for chinese (omlette) was nice, head still a bit away with it :)

race for life

This whole grief thing is a toughy, it's a very personal thing.

I ran the race for life today at coombe abbey (with Ali, Ellie, Julie, Shannon and Jade), was a really good thing to do, lots of people running round in the sunshine for a good reason. Went I say run we jogged and walked. Was nice cos Leah Net and Leah's grandma came to watch :)

Grandad's funeral Weds, too far away for my liking but nothing we can do about it.

i am not keen on this greiving lark, feel like my head is a stone today, very heavy
i don't know what to think or do really, feels wrong to get on like normal but not okay not too
have found myself sighing a lot and staring into space a lot today

sat is now

my goodness it feels like time is flying by and i is a busy bunny

i think cos it ain't been sunny i'll letting days drift by without much thought, i must stop letting that happen. I was in Luton today and was every so chuffed to see a christian band playing in the town centre and a few christians with guitars singing just a little bit further down. I was in Luton with Ellie and Sarah having a little tour of the uni cos poor old Sarah is trying to figure out a what do i do with the next bit of my life type decision. Rather her than me, i prefer to shy way from such things. Anyhows I was pleasantly surprised with Luton Town centre and my dinner in Yates was lovely, ta Ellie.

Then I got home and Laine was making stuff for sunday school, she does do it properly when she does it. Then we went to the range to get a tin, next off to tesco for an air bed (on offer £9 - you can't say fairer than that) and some wellies, but allas no welly bobs.

Then to pizza hut yum yum, italian with bacon and green pepper, my usual :) then back home, pumped up air bed helped Laine a bit with more sunday school type stuff and now I is blogging!

Tomorrow I am partaking in the Godiva festival for 5 hours with me boss.

see above the severe weather warning for the west midlands tomorrow and where will i be in a tent telling kids about my job, lovely

well it is wednesday, the days have been moving quickly the last few weeks :)
My twisted willow is looking unwell, it ain't water logged so Baz thinks it might be that the nutrients have all been washed out by the consistant downpours, thus and therefore I have given it some food, I hope it works :)

would like to go away in the caravan even for a night but with the weather as it is I don't much feel like it really

net and Leah have been staying 2 nights a week for a while now and have fitted in nicely, we seem to now have a mop bucket and mop and neither I nor laine bought it :)
