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

Gosh its windy again tonight The weather is very strange at the moment one minute sunny the next pouring and blowing a gale.

Whats new here... Harry is getting much better at skiing , his friends mum has been taking them for extra coaching and it seems to be paying off. He is getting excited about going now, although in the past couple of days he has had a couple of asthma attacks which we thought he had grown out of, must be some sort of pollen reaction.

Brainiac was great fun, lots of bangs and explosions. Didnt see you though Joan!

What is it about husbands and hobbys? Why do they become obsessed by things? Why do they only talk about that thing and WHY do they leave all the stuff lying about everywhere!! These are the questions on my mind tonight. Namely fishing, do I look like I want to hear about shortages of Lugworms and find out how to make rigs and trip over great big rucksacks. No I do not!

Still enough, I hope you are all well and happy.

Skiing and Stuff


Thanks for the comments about my lovely boys...I think they are very handsome but then I am biased!!

Today Harry is off to the dry ski slope for the 3rd time! I hate to say it but I dont think he is a natural skiier by hey hes enjoying himself!!

This trip is costing a fortune with all the extras involved, I think I have everything now except the goggles and the swiss francs. He  will be like a pack horse carrying everything. I hope its not as windy when he goes as it was here last night. When Julian returned from work this morning they are wheelie bins and trees all over the roads.

What else have I been up to......we are trying to find a holiday in the May half term, France is looking good again although Harry has set his heart on Italy or Florida! I think a lottery win is needed. The problem with France is the drive, Julians back has been playing up and he is due to have a nerve block injection in a couple of weeks, I would hate to book something and then I have to do the driving!!! My worst nightmare. I'm sure he will be fine hopefully the injection will do the trick.

Tonight I am going to a Duck Racing evening...yes I know I really know how to live!! What is entails I have no idea but it could be fun. Next Friday I am off with Harry to watch Brainiac live. Now I dont know if you are familar with Brainiac on TV but it normally involves blowing up caravans etc so how it will go on stage I dont know! Harry cant wait as its a belated birthday present.

I am not letting work get me down, I think our new leader has been told not to be patronising after someone(I wonder who!)had words with her friendly favourite Dr! I am letting everything go over my head, no point stressing over a job is there !!

Well I hope you are all ok
