I'm not quite sure how we have managed it, but somehow the Q and I breed sick children. The bumblebee's are forever ill, they don't just save it for the winter months either, it's all year round....how sharing and caring eh?
Cos' we all go down with it....in the end....we always do. Someone told me a while ago, that once they get through pre-school, then their first year at school, they become more immune to the school bugs...Pah I tell you....what a load of toffee apple ( as my Dad would say )..........
So basically as you can probably tell by now.....I have eldest bumblebee off school with a variety of illnesses, bless her, I know I am a little bit over motherly of her. And she does get fed up with me asking how she is feeling, do you need anything, more cushions, water, milk, are you hungry, do you fancy some fresh air, let me just take your temperature again........LEAVE THE POOR KID ALONE YOU CRY!!!!!!
You see her Asthma worries me, it comes about at the oddest times, usually accompanied by a cold.....a few more weeks we have to wait for her flu jab......her little lifeline.
So we headed off for a charity shop this sunny afternoon....( yup I kept checking, can you manage the walk, are you ok, tell me if you are too tired ).....she had some pennies she wanted to buy some books with...it's amazing how far £1.60 can go in these places.......
She found books, I found fabric......
A cheerful fabric, quite Autumney I thought, perfect for a few projects, I'm delighted with it.
As I am a bit sleep deprived ( poorly kiddies...thanks ) it's probably not the best time to tell you what a week it's been. I won't go into details, as there is no need. But sometimes things are not always rosey, they don't go to plan, I guess we just have to get on with it.
A job came up, there I said it.....that felt good. I applied, and didn't even get an interview. That's not all, but hey.....who gives a monkey's.....I have two beautiful bumblebee's who are well behaved, loving and caring, and such good fun. The extra money would have been a huge help, BUT I am happy with my little lot.
The sun has come out, and rumour has it it's staying for a while. Once sleep has returned I plan on pottering out in that sunshine....plant a few bulbs, fiddle with the veg, sip tea and just be.
Thank you for listening to my moaning today....if you are still there.....thankyou!
P.S Do you like this pew? I discovered at at Q's work, apparently one of his "men" left it at work to store it when they moved house over 10 years ago...and it's still there...I'm trying to get my hands on it. I do love it.
