Everyone say bluuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Just been to school to get logo'd uniform. Another 60 gone there. Looks very smart though. Now sewing name labels in.

Worked the weekend. Couple of colleagues pretty sick but hopefully will be ok. Had a couple of funny calls though which restored my faith in human stupidity. :lol:

Backyardigans is on the tv now. :207:

We decorated Daniel's bedroom at the weekend and put his new bed up - it's a high sleeper bed from Argos, came flat packed and would you believe it there was nothing missing!!! Only took about 5 hours to put up though and we had to shut the bedroom windows to spare the neighbours and expletives :rolleyes008:

Now I have the entire contents of his room in our bathroom, on the landing you name it and it all has to go back somehow! That is my job for today and probably the next week - still the kids are back to school on Thursday. :bounce009:

I`ll be tied up later today [when I log out of here!], doing some repairs to one of the electric lights at the bottom of our drive.
Some scroat tried to steal it on Saturday Night. We had a pair stolen a few years ago so I made sure that their replacements were nigh on impossible to steal, so it ain`t going to be easy for me to remove/repair it!

Definitely a bleugh day...:sigh;
I'm so exhausted after decorating all last week that I can't think straight...
I'd like to be doing this :f030: but I have a week's worth of this :chores003::chores008::chores007::chores004: and I really shouldn't be doing this:compute1:.

It's a good Monday here. :D We are at SSR and about ready to go find some breakfast. :yes: The light is peeping under the still drawn curtains, so I'm guessing that the weather is going to be nice. :yes:

Thank you! :yes: It's our last day here, so that is a bit depressing. Even when you live on top of WDW, when you come for a proper vacation, the end of it is still sad. :sigh;

As my Mum used to say "You have to leave the place that you like so that you can come back again!"
Enjoy what`s left of your break Tink.

got the last of our holiday washing out on the line today, went and bought school shoes, DH and the boys did a bit of work in the front room (we're not living in it at the moment - it's empty....no curtains, no furniture, newly plastered walls and lots more work to do!)

The boys have been quite happy pottering around today so that means I have too! DH went to work at 2.30 and just sent me a message to say he's got to work 'til 3am instead of midnight as the next section due on are short staffed.....:rolleyes008:

Just about to do dinner for the boys and Jays friend.

:( Had to pay 30 for 2 pairs of DS14 school trousers, and around 12 for 2 pairs for DS9, can't remember how much the shirts were

Gotta love it when we do things like that! Nothing like making more work for ourselves just to protect our property a bit!


It's a holiday and I'm not working!

Is it too late for me to give a big BLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLECCCH to the Monday as well (even *if* it's only an hour and a half from being over?)

Holiday, PAH!!! I think I've worked more in the past three days than I have in a year! And I'm just.......tired.

And then there's my new son....

And the visiting dog...

And the laundry...

And the new trampoline...

And Baleigh turns TEN tomorrow...

And the original son is driving me bonkers...

RAR.

It is almost over..Blegh!!!

Monday was the same as the past two weeks. Empty boxes, put things away, do laundry, try to clean, and then cry because there is still a million things to put away. I don't know that I will ever move again. It really really stinks :yes:

Beccaberry
02-09-2008, 02:53 AM
Oh hon... :hug2: I know that feeling...the boxes just seem to be endless don't they?

Don't overdo, ok? You should be taken care of yourself!!!

:hug2:

endless endless endless :sigh;

I am taking care of myself. I didn't do much during the move, so now is my time to actually help out with putting things away in the kitchen etc. I feel bad watching Dh do so much work! I will be happy when it is all done and we can just relax. I don't think I have left this house in 2 weeks..that is just crazy!

Oh my, Johnie, how fast they grow up!

Mine is having a bumpy first year of high school - I won't go into detail as he is a member here and I don't want to embarass him. :(
