autumn days

Well it really feels like autumn has set in doesnt it? When it is slightly cold and especially when it is wet outside I just want to snuggle up inside with some lovely warm home today we had a lovely meaty cottage pie with a blackberry and apple crumble. So yummy!

At the moment I am enjoying getting into the rhythm of school and the routine which comes from that. I did have a tidy house but over the weekend I had to attend to a tree in our garden and well nothing else got done!!!

I will take a picture tomorrow. I was one of those situations which Colin hates. He was mowing the lawn and I say I think I need to cut some brances off the tree as one of them has come a little loose. Colin was not so sure but said he would help. so armed with a somewhat blunt saw I started tackling the lower brances....It took awhile bc the saw was very blunt but once started I had to carry on. The first branch came down quite easily and then the next branch was more of a challenge!

Colin comes out of the house to find me halfway up the tree sawing the larger branch! all I can say is he is a very patient man!!!)

It ended up with a broken saw and the branch hanging precariously in the tree! So I borrowed a much better saw and a tree lopper the next day and fininshed the job...the pile of branches is taller than I am!

school days

dont they look smart!

Thursday, 4 September 2008


Today was Jamies first day at the Junior school. He looked so hansome in his uniform and so little. His back pack was nearly as big as him which was quite funny. We had to go in slightly later and he lined up on the playground by his new teacher and went in with out a care in the world....not a backward glance.

What was really lovely...I was in work today but not teaching, so I had little peeps of him all through out the day. Every time I saw him he was smiling and seemed to be enjoying himself. Jamie is like that when everything is going well he is very contented and happy, when it is not he is a bit of a rain cloud!

I will try to get a picture tomorrow as I was trying to get to work today I didnt have time for a photo...very unlike me!:)
Phoebe loves her two new teachers and was full of it today....just a few weeks and Ewan will be at school too. Looking forward to him starting but for now I need to start tidying the house for the home visit on Friday (thank goodness it was friday not monday!!!)

Just to give you some thing to look at I love this....soo cute!

and these...

I need to go and make something.....

girls night out

Worked very hard on saturday (and all week tidying up) so it was such fun to go out to see a girly flick with Vanessa, Roey and Emma. It was such fun and the kind of flim you could make comments through out and sing if you wanted too. I love ABBA songs and the whole styling of things in the film....and there was a bit of sunshine which we have not seen all summer.

I loved this bit where mother and daughter get ready...I hope that is what my relationship ies like with Phoebe and lovely! Have a great week it is back to school soon so I am busy getting the uniforms ready.
