Hello Again! In this update the first half of this week was quiet and routine then second half took off and was more busy! Let's dive in ...
Monday 18th October:
Apparently today is my birthday. This is a day I always find hard as I hate my birthday. This one hits hard as I turn 40. Half way to death - If i'm lucky to survive that long - Joyful thought! Things start to sag (well already have a bit late for that), more grey hairs and wrinkles and more aches and pains, more peri-menopause symptoms. Can't see much to look forward to! Any way ... The children were keen to throw me cards and presents as soon as we got up but I really wanted to save this until after they got in from school. It's hard to be out the house and on time as it is :-D I got up from my nap to see hubby had got me flowers and chocolate and a card. This was apparently from mother in law but I prefer to think of it as from him lol! He's never brought me flowers before - well unless they have been on the shopping list or a child has asked him to! He even chose some with nice bright cheery colours he knew I would like. So that was nice.
For tea I chose pizza hut. This wasn't what I wanted for tea but as every parent knows your life revolves around kids and you are meant to feed them. So pizza means no cooking for me and they would eat it. So win win.
Tuesday 19th October:
Today I had an email from the landscaping guys saying they could come and do our garden work starting Thursday if we want! They have had a cancellation! Gulp! Well i'm not ready for that but ok do it. Sooner it's done the sooner we can order a shed.
Other highlight from today was emptying Sophie's bag ... Full of conkers!
Up early. The men have asked to come at 8 but don't show up til 8:15. I get the kids off to school as usual. The men were asking about what to do etc at literally 8:35 just as I'm about to leave the door. So by the time we had dealt with them it was 8:45 and we were totally late! So hubby shoved us all in the car quick and drove us up there! I get back and have breakies and a well deserved coffee. The sun was streaming on me through the window which was nice!
The men went home at 4 so time for a nosey at what was done! Looks like they put up the new fencing and gate. Cut through the sleeper wood that was there for the start of the new path down to the bridge. Set up the string to guide the path down, and put one retainer of wood in that will be where the shed base will go.
