cold day 2

i think it'sday two but I was beginning to show symptoms on Friday night so maybe this is day 3 i'm unsure.
I slept okay which is always a good thing :) laid in a bit before checking up on matrix the cat. went and bought a filofax punch for laine, gardened (i love my garden) cleaned up and got an old bike working, delivered said bike to Ellie's, said hello to the girls on their return, mowed the lawn, made me and laine a hot drinks
cleaned out the rabbit, gave him big hug
and made my new cold frames ready for winter.
Below is a photo of my boys these were cuttings I took early in the year, see how they've grown, I'm so proud

I have a cold this is not something I am happy about but plan to use it as an excuse to slob this weekend.
I have been racking me brain as to where this cold came from as no one I know has had one, then as laine began to start sniffling as well this morning and mentioned the work freashers flu I believe I may have fresher flu by proxy :)
So today I shall be drinking lots of orange juice and blowing me nose a lot
I have had some frosted shreddies and 2 tracker bars, I wonder if that is the ideal diet for these occasions?

we went (laine and I) on holiday down to bo peep, adderbury, oxfordshire
was lovely fantastic and wonderful, really nice place, peaceful, the people were really friendly


There was a field, not just any field but one on the brow of a small hill htat caught the wind perfectly, thus from this day forward I shall call it the kite flying field :)

we went to chipping norton the next day lots nicer :)

As soon as Laine knows her days at uni we are booking again

kiting x3

I took my new kite flying three times today :)
Coombe Abbey once and the park near my house twice, once with elaine and once with Ian and Leah, it so cool being able to walk up the road and ask if they coming out to play :)

Had lamb grill steaks for tea and now watching xtra factor, oh my goodness :)

birthday and kite

Yesterday we all trooped off to me mum's for my birthday, it was a house full but was lovely, we went a walk which everyone enjoyed particularly the bit when you go past the sewage plant :)

There was chocolate, take-away and cake and a fair few presents :)
Goodness knows how long it took them both to clear up after we'd left.

Today I took my kite out for it's first trip, wind speed approx 13mph and it was fantastic, really really good, I soooooo enjoyed it, I may go back again later today.

sunshine on 11th Sept

Fab sunshine today, I went to find some conkers on the way to the doctors this morning and when Leah and Net came round tonight Leah and I went down the park and found ourselves 34 conkers :)

Went to the doctors for my asthma check, they wouldn't let me have a repeat prescription cos I ain't been in 2 years. Anyways I went, was late in but nurse lovely, did me peak flow and got 530, that my best score in the last 4 years, so no different inhalers :) I also now have my very own peak flow machine thing so I can watch it myself and if it gets lower I go back. Think the nurse got the idea that I wouldn't go regualrly so I can watch me own peak flow. Feel like I passed a test or something.
3 days to my birthday

It's getting dark and the rabbits out so don't let me forget to get him in

I just had a look at the searches on Goole that have led people to my blog, one of them said "omelette rabbit hutch" now who in their right mind would search for such a thing.

Were they thinking of a rabbit hutch made of omlette or an omlette made of rabbit hutch!?
I don't understand people anymore, here is the most fantastic information portal at our finger tips and someone typed in "omlette rabbit hutch"!

anyways, I fixed Leahs dolls house, which see and Laine are renovating and cut a chunk out of a hopefully not very important ceiling joist. Nice evening, House is nearly on so timeot microwave me hot milk :)

i took the ceiling down in th hall upstairs cos Ian said I should, thus I did, it was messy, made me cough but glad it's done, just needs tidying up so beam and plasterboard can go up. It's getting there but wish it were done :)
At one point the other day i had to do the hold scaffold board over the stair well, oooooo scary
