I know this post is late and you can blame
the weather. It's so glorious and I've been
making the most of being outside.
I'm going to keep this post as succinct as possible,
as I'm aware that the last few posts have been
overly long, and I thank you for sticking with me.
Sunshine, beautiful sunshine.
It's been warm and sunny this week.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for
lots more like it.
I don't think I've ever been so glad to get home
as I was on Tuesday when
I went on a school trip
to the Tenterden Steam Railway.
Really lovely place, don't get me wrong,
and I enjoyed the steam train journey
and the evacuee experience with actors on
the train and platform (the spiv/black
marketeer deserves special mention).
What I didn't enjoy was the coach journey
there and back to school.
All I will say is NONE of the children
travelled well and we ran out of buckets.
We had to resort to the use of carrier bags.
As I say, getting home was a dream!
Cally-Cat had a visit to the vet this week.
She's had a few problems and has
now got some medicine for arthritis
in her neck. She should start to feel more
comfortable soon. She had a
manicure/pedicure while she was there :o)
The vet also confirmed my suspicion that
Cally is now virtually blind, but she
seems to be coping ok and Rosie Mae
(who is deaf and mostly blind)
has been so patient with her.
I love my old girls so much.
I really enjoyed my day out with Grant
on Thursday when we went up to London.
If you missed that post (which is also about
The Mystery Project) you can read it
I'm also looking forward to going to
at The Royal Academy of Art
on Saturday, with Hope.
Luke is now charging for his haircuts.
His boss is happy that he's reached the
required standard so he's now barbering for real.
I'm so proud of my boy.
Grant and I took Hope to a local college open day
last weekend to find out more about the
Art and Design courses, post GCSE's 2013.
She loved it, of course (so did I and I tried so
hard not to be the green-eyed-monster!).
She's got to work on a portfolio to show her drawing
skills (she's studying photography for GCSE so doesn't
get to do any drawing at school), and she'll do that over the
summer holidays. She'll also have to go for an interview.
The course she wants is highly sought after and there are
only 20 places, but she's up for the challenge.
I really hope she gets in **crossing fingers**.
OK, I think I've bored you enough for one post.
I'll pop over to Virginia and leave a link to
this post. It would be lovely if you joined
in too. I find this weekly event, thinking
of the positive things in life, a really
uplifting experience. It really does
make me think about everything and
everyone in my life that I am grateful for.
ps sending love and luck to Missy K
(my Sister-in-law) who is climbing
Mount Snowdon this weekend
in aid of Cystic Fibrosis.
Go Karen, go!
