Sunday Slow Cooker experiment

Yesterday I had a nap at about 6 until 7.30 this was a good idea at the time but with one thing and another then left my head whirling in an awake state until 2am this morning.
I don't like not getting all my hours sleep it makes me grumpy.
Anyways, what has cheered me greatly is that on Friday I purchased a slow cooker, just a little tiny one and today went and got some ingredients to throw in it. Have now chopped and thrown them in and am waiting 8 hours to see what happens, I'm excited and a little scared :)

i've already been up an hour and it is now 7.48, it doesn't feel right, in the winter i like my comfy cosy bed that sits right next to the radiator. saying that the sky was fantastic this morning and there was a stunning view of the moon.

i love my mitre saw bit on the circular saw it makes the skirting board so much easier, if only my walls didn't have bends in them :0

In Brum today running training on child protection policy, enjoyed myself.
Now sat on the floor in the hall playing on laptop and playing with rabbit
Rabbit say "Hi"

well this is my third day up at 6.30, well today was more like 6.40 but lets not split hairs! I'm surviving, I work til 8pm tonight though so will hav eto see how long I last in a usefully functioning way :)
Last night we began to put the radiator on, unfortunatley the pipes are a wee bit unlevel, well 4.5 cm's out to be exact so poor old Pete is gonna come back tonight to stick a bit extra on. I don't like radiator putting on, one becuase of the water and the potenial for leaks and 2 because I don't like having to drill into walls. So Pete did the stuff and I passed him things and made fun of him :)

Anyways off to the vet to see what she thinks of our Oscar today :)

Sunday 13th Jan

Yesterday was a funny little old day, I did lots, went shopping, avoided painting skirting for 2 hours by cutting bits of wood, playing with rabbit, doing the washing and tidying, then painted the skirting which only took half an hour, then painted some other stuff :)

Then I felt poorly so did very little, went and ate some chocolates the Pooles left out, I know it could be classed as theft but they left them out :)

Had dizzy head not sure if it was the paint, the excitment or what but after a good night sleep I feel better :)

floor and rabbit

The floor is down in the hall, a day and a half worth of doing stuff and just the grouting to do :)
Rabbit looking good, we going for a check up tomorrow, he was running around the lounge earlier, his claws are a bit too long to easily manage the laminate floor at the minute he's a bit slippy slidy!

I went out a number of times to get dvd's to record on, it's harder to do that than you might think, only to reliase that on demand is copyright protected. Oh well they will all work on the computer :)

Then I pottered in the hall, fitted new switches everywhere, only one small flash of light with a minor bang :) and i decorators chalked some gaps. Getting near the end now.
