Holidays and vegetables

Evening All

Thought I was due and update whilst waiting for Dr Who!

I have some pictures to download of my newly planted veggies. I will be so pleased if I get so much as a tomato! I am obsessed with watering, staking and to my new little babies., I have also planted some flowers in tubs . Pictures will follow tomorrow.

On Friday we are off to sunny (hopefully) France, I cannot wait. Nearly 2 weeks off work  Yippee. Here is a link to where we are going.

Looks like great fun doesnt it!

Had a busy social time at work recently. Went bowling which was good. Our team won ,had to drive 2 tipsy doctors home. Then last night we had a meeting of our book club. We all took food and talked about the book, One Thousand Splendid Suns for about 5 mins then gossiped the rest of the night away! Excellent. The book is fab by the way if anyone fancies it.

Just ordered a takeaway curry ...being lazy tonight. Tomorrow am going to visit my neice who was 18 this week and try to get my washing done for holiday.

Will be back tomorrow with my photos   Hopefully.

PS Is anyone else addicted to the Apprentice? I am finding Lee oddly attractive...should I be worried????

Today I feel rather jaded. Last night we went out for Julians neices 18th birthday, it was Ok , the food was a bit expensive and the chef seemed to overdo the salt in everything but I think she enjoyed herself.

Then this morning I got up at the crack of dawn to sit in a wood to be a marshall on a 10k run a friend was organizing. So now I am back with my feet up and thought hey I think my journal is due for an update.

This week my eldest son had a special mission! He was to cross the road outside his work to the CORN EXCHANGE and accost Tony Hadley  (his mothers hero) who was opening the beer festival.  He did bless him got his autograph had a chat with him and tasted his own beer. Rory said he was very nice and friwndly to him. I couldnt go myself due to work and the fact I would have been struck dumb and paralysed to the spot like I was last time.

Harry has been going to the local Army Cadets at the nearby airbase and is finding it great fun. They have so far done a bit of CPR , map work and gun safety! He cant wait to get his uniform boots etc. They are apparently in the near future going uo in the air sea rescue helicopter! I shall be having a fit!

Cant think of much else to tell so I bid you goodbye for now    Louise   xx

Back from the cold


Harry is back from his 8 days away in Switzerland. He looks like a panda with a really brown face and white google marks around his eyes! He had a brilliant time and cant wait to go again..better start saving. I think hr krpt his thermals on day and night to save time and his washbag looked unused! Still he had a good bath last night. No broken bones just a few bruises on his shins.

We missed him alot more than he missed us I think but I suppose thats what being a parent is all about. Tomorrow he has to write a presentation which is going to be about the dogs! So he and Julian are going to take lots of photos of them. I am reading the book by Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer..I would so much like to meet that man.

Hope you are well, we had a bit of snow here today but it didnt really settle.

Happy easter


Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter.

Its freezing cold and blowing a gale here! Harry and his Dad have gone fishing in Aldeburgh on the coast. It is so windy they can hardly stand but Harry is so excited that he has caught a Dab and he is going to eat it for his tea!

I am making some mini Hot cross buns, they are just rising in the airing cupboard at the moment..I hope they turn out OK as I have never made them before. Its so nice to take all your problems out on bread dough!!

My old dog is acting very odd. He wont eat his dried food but will eat anything else you care to give him and everytime I let him outside he keeps howling. I think there must be a dog on heat somewhere. He is perfectly lively out on a walk. Oh well we shall just have to keep an eye on him.

My eldest son has just had a bonus from his job and been out and spent all of it!! He was most put out on the amount of tax he had to pay..welcome to the real world!

Julian should get his bonus too shortly but that will mostly have to go on a new car as his is getting past its best, we shall go out looking tomorrow after I fininsh work. I only hope its not too busy, the number of peple who were aggreived we were shut on Friday and Monday  , I did point out to one man that even we get time off for good behaviour! I drew the short straw for the emergency Saturday surgery, never mind after that I dont have to go back until Wednesday.

Anyway Happy Easter and stay away from the chocolate
