laine on a trip

laine has left for a weekend, gone from uni and not back until sunday evening. I have done the washing up, cleaned the kitchen, tidied the table, went shopping and got a new paint sample for the hall.
I watched an episode of babylon 5 which I forgot how much I liked and now I'm watching DIY sos. Lovely lovely.
Laine, hope you have a fantastic time, moses is missing you already he's a restless bunny

parents anniversity part 2

If you do forget your parents anniversary or forget to send a card then a few days later go on the Internet and pay for a helium balloon and some nice chocs to be delivered to their door.
Few you return to the good books unscathed!

one weekend, 3 days off , 2 days at work and do I have a cold?

Feeling a bit coldy, you know the very beginning of a cold htat your not sure if you'll fight it off or if you'll be a full blown snotville tomorrow. I'm hoping to fight it off while having a nice old sleep tonight, where did we get to with the hall? It's ready for the woodwork to be snaded down and painted and then for the wall to be done, how fab is that :)!?
Got to do a bit of work on the stair but not too much, then floor then done. Feel like I'm going to have a gap in my life when it's done, will have to get a new hobbie!
Biked to work today, first time in a week cos of my annual leave but glad I did.
We have our advent calenders, role on Dec 1st and my first choccy

moral dilema

To do what is right or what is easier?
Right for who? Easier for who?
Is the intent right? Selfish or not?
blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh blahhhhhhhhhhhhhh grown up world!!!!

Megs had a birthday

Megs in now 4
Time flies when your watching kids grow up :) She had a mini party last night, proper one with lots of screaming children is on Friday. So it was round to the McMahon's for buffet tea last night, all good apart from the poor child being poorly. She was trying to hold to together but you could almost see the illness sweeping over her face, it's just not fair when you get a cold on your fourth birthday! But she did manager to get us to play the disney princess game and annoy Ellie who was trying to watch telly by driving her new funky remote control car around the living room.
All good fun

t'is the morning to buy a mini christmas tree

I have mini decorations (a nativity) and mini tinsel and soon I shall have a mini real christmas tree. I like how Laine just lets me get on with some things without uttering a word (even though it's only mid November), I may give the tree a name, like Stuart or Seth or maybe Betty but I haven't decided yet.
I had meetings almost back to back yesterday, t'was busy but sometimes busy does me good.
I need a radiator, still not bought one they didn't have the one I wanted last weekend.
I have 3 days left at work then 3 days off next week, very well timed and I am very looking forward to them.

Today I learned about this place

today it be thursday

Up a little earlier than usual cos the central heating waked me up, I love feeling warm and cosy at night and like that it's not cold when i get up but I don't like that it wakes me up and makes me feel groggy first thing, maybe I shall invent a cheap alternative heating system that doesn't do that just for me :)

anyways off to work now, another day another dollar or two :)

6th Nov

It is sunshiney today, I loooove the sunshine :)
I am feeling a little more hopeful about the hall now it has some paint slapped on some of the walls, still one to plaster but getting their. Can't wait to begin to think about proper colours I'm even getting excited about buying a radiator! I think I'm going to go for a 60 x 1400, nice having another warm surface to dry clothes :)

Anyways things to do

sunday 4th November in my life

Worst thing today was half way through the day I realised it was Sunday not Saturday very upsetting :)
I started to sand down some plaster done by whoever rewired the house, as I started, large chunks of wall fell out and so I had to spend some time sorting that out and making the wall look more like a wall again :)
I PVA'd some of the plaster, what a boring job :)

and I painted white, lots of walls white, just plain old white. The solvent smell made me feel a little dizzy so I'm sure the rabbit must have been suffering (I put him outside in the end)

I'm basecoating to get rid of little cracks etc, ceilings included, that was a bit scary above the stairs.

Then after a very large bowl of pasta (I was very hungry) I put lights in Leah's dolls house.

Yesterday was firework night Laine, McMahon's (Ellie, Sarah, Shannon and Megs) and my good self went to a display was fab, loved it, so did Megs, we met the Burnetts there (Pete, Lorraine and Sam) which made the night even better, Megs likes people and much enjoyed helping me smack Lorraine and Pete's butts :)

Today was my first attempt at plastering solo, and I think it was okay although you never know until it's dried, the mixing was a little stressful but other than that all done and cleaned up and I didn't get any on the rabbit :)
