It's been one of those weeks;
busy, busy, busy!
It feels good to sit down and pick out the
good bits from the whirl of activity.
I enjoyed taking Hope to the
Art and Design Department
at the local college. She's considering
her options post-GCSE
(she sits them in the summer) and this
course looks brilliant (I wish I could do it!).
I could see her being happy there; after all,
WHO wouldn't be happy 'arting' for 2 years?!
She has now applied for the Art and Design
course, with Photography as second choice.
The interviews will be in February 2013.
Last night we went to a 6th Form attached to a local
school and she liked it there too. She would study
A Levels there and there's a great selection to
choose from. She is in the process of filling in
that application form now.
She has also applied for another school's
6th Form and while she's not so interested in
that one she wants to make sure she gets the
offer of at least one place. Competition is high.
Exciting times ahead, hopefully!
I really enjoyed a coffee and catch-up
with my dear friend, Dawn.
I don't see her enough but we'll always be
good friends (she knows too much about me!).
A snatched sandwich and chat
with my friend, Sue.
I think I have a busy life but hers makes mine
look positively sedentary!
It'll be Hope's 16th birthday on Sunday!
Oh my goodness, my baby's gone and
got all 'growed up'!
I've got tickets for her and a group of her
friends to see the new Twilight film tonight.
There has been much
squealing with excitement!
Tomorrow she's going shopping with
another friend followed by lunch.
Sunday itself will be just a family 'do'
with CAKE and candles.
You're only 16 once :)
We won the National Lottery!
I emailed Grant at work to let him know and told
him that I'd put the winnings towards a celebratory
Morrisons Curry for 2 and a bottle of wine.
We agreed he shouldn't resign from work just yet.
Yes, we won the grand total of £10.
It's been a really stressful week with Small Cat
and she's been backwards and forwards to the
Last Chance Animal Rescue vets because she
won't eat. She has kidney failure and gingivitis,
along with some bad teeth. The vet is unwilling
to remove the bad teeth because of the kidney failure
and such a long operation would be too risky.
Trying to find a positive in this is tricky but the
good news is she's still alive, we've enjoyed
some lovely cuddles with her this week and
throughout the day she spends time with each
one of us, very precious moments.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the arsenal
of tablets prescribed will start to make her feel better.
She's such a sweet girl and deserves more time
with us being loved and cherished.
Luke has had a week off work and has thoroughly
enjoyed doing NOTHING! I've never known
someone able to sleep quite as much as he does.
He works hard so I don't begrudge him one bit,
I just think it's quite remarkable!
