Thursday 30th August

The last day of a lovely holiday. Went back to Daymer Bay and walked back to the little church in the dunes. Played boule and quoits on the sand. Lovely sister took my daughter body boarding and had a whale of a time. Now having glass of red and a Pringle or two…will drink the rest of the bottle tonight as can’t take it home with me.

Daughter’s name for her favourite teddy is “Baby Bear” which conjures up delightful image of a sweet smelling, cuddly bear.  My name for him is “Toxic Ted” which conjures up a completely different image! He is in dire need of an appointment with the washing machine. Hope he doesn’t disintegrate………….

My name is Toxic Ted!


Saturday 4th August

Husband went out this morning on a mission. I did suggest reading my book on how to construct a pond but he waved that off. He obviously knows best! I was going to mark out the hole using garden canes and the hose, but he came back with a tin of spray paint! Anybody want a bundle of bamboo and some rubber….listing now on EBay lol


This pond lark is hard work

Wednesday 25th July

The kids may be on summer holidays….but unfortunately I’m not.  Started my day in usual way by quickly making delicious mug of instant coffee. This was followed by quickly jumping in the shower. At 7.30 a.m I quickly commenced on the family’s ironing to be followed at 8.00 a.m by quickly popping down to Tesco.  This was quickly followed by updating husband’s accounts for his business before finally commencing own full time job at 9.00 am.  During which time ensured that “snack needs” of 10 yo and 7 yo were quickly responded to. At 10.30 a.m quickly hung out the washing whilst making myself another quick mug of delicious instant coffee. 12.30 p.m quickly made lunch for one and all. During my one hour lunch break I quickly whipped up sumptuous casserole (thank you Mr. Schwartz) for dinner.  After dinner, I quickly washed up to be followed by quickly watering the plants.  Can someone please tell me when the good times are supposed to start as I sure could do with some…………………
