Hello there fellow Bloggers! Thanks ever so much for the comments on my last post.
Well, the past week the rain came down, down, down and still it kept on raining as a consequence Sports Day was cancelled and has been re-scheduled for this coming Monday. I suspect that it will be cancelled again - forever the optimist, that's me!
It has rained continuously throughout the day - sometimes heavy rainfall and sometimes just a drizzle and they call this Summer!
A few days ago we had a skip delivered as the inside of our garage had become a complete tip! Many old pots of paint, general rubbish and a great deal of untidiness.
The OH has been in there all day - chucking unwanted items into the skip and organising what is to be kept so that in future we can easily find things!
Apparently, we have three sprinklers. I asked the OH why, "Oh, if I couldn't find a sprinkler I bought another one!" "What a waste!" I said. "Yes, especially as there's a hosepipe ban and I can't use them!"
"But you wouldn't want to use any of them with all this rain!" I said.
"Oh, did I tell you I also found an unopened box containing a paddling pool!" said the OH.
"Well, we certainly have no need for that at the moment!" I said.
In addition to the three sprinklers and the paddling pool we had three mice nests! Nice!!!
The plan is to keep the garage tidy once we've got rid of 16 years worth of junk and to keep everything in its designated place so that we don't end up with more than one of the same thing! That's the plan anyway.
As the OH was busy outside I took some photos of the rabbit toys in KP's bedroom!
In the spare bedroom I came across Archie - having a cat nap!
I went and got some ribbon and had 5 - 10 minutes of fun.
I am interested, don't take it away!
If you do, I'll grab it and claw it back!
O.K. you win!
Stop teasing me!
On Friday it was Prize giving day at KP's school.
This was the conversation on Friday morning before school.
"Mum, don't be disappointed I haven't got a prize for anything this year."
Me - "It doesn't matter, I know you worked hard and not everyone can get a prize. How do you know you haven't got a prize?"
"Because I've been told that I have to sit on the back row during the Prize giving and it's only those in the front row that get a prize!"
Well, she was wrong - she won the Drama Prize and received some light reading material - The Complete Works of William Shakespeare!
After the Prize giving there is usually an invite for the parents to join the children for a picnic.
Due to the heavy rain this had to take place in the School Hall.
This however did not dampen (no pun intended) the children's spirits and a good time was had by all!
Tomorrow is, of course, sorted - we will be sat in front of the TV watching the tennis!
Until next time,
P.S. "Hello" to two new followers Lucia and Nick Cunningham.
