Nice weekend with DS home. Went to see Aladdin this morning, LOVED it. DS is curled up in a recliner here beside me as his back is bothering him.
Making pork and beans tonight as a kind of homage ( sp? ) to JcKitty and her daddy, you always made himt he nicest meals. We do like cornbread but not with savoury food, its not a British taste. I serve cornbread as a breakfast muffin.
Lots of blah this week, foolishly I have been listening to the news..........what possible good could come of BORIS JOHNSON as PM ?????? Anyone ?????? He is like a refugee from a Jeeves and Wooster comedy, " Oh, what a lovable buffoon am I "
Did I mention I completed a metric tonne of paperwork, sent it off only to get part of it returned with NO covering letter at all? Which means what exactly ? Is there some arcane code \I am unaware of ??? Anothr parent same house sent me a stressed out email regarding much the same treatment. I haven't responded, I can't offer anything positive as my answer would be............" they don't care, this is being dealt with by some lowly clerk and there is nothing at all we can do about it ."
Factual but not reassuring.
Did find out the care home will take the boys on holiday for around £450 each ( and we will also be paying for the holiday itself ) That is not a bad deal, if the others will go along with it , I'd pay that. Given that they need waking nights. I'd love them to go to Centre Parcs. So around £1250 realistically but he would enjoy it hugely.
One lovely thing this week was Holy Communion Mass. Oh my gosh the kids looked beyond adorable, the clothes were so elaborate, the shoes, the veils. The parents really turned them out well.
No expenses this coming week, nothing needed. I am hoping for some early nights at work as my collegue ( cancer sufferer ) thinks she is well enough to return.
Craft club was really good, 12 x 12 mini books, we made around 25, but lots of prep for me. THIS week I am falling back on Cross Stitch
Its simple and easy to do, those who have done the club before will be given the choice of more challenging patterns. But NO prep !!!
Mackie, thought you were lovely to your friend with the new baby, so sorry to here the poor woman ended up with a birth injury. She is being put thru it.
Fathers day is a BBQ at one of the kids ( they are still deciding whose turn it is to host !!! Both want to
Hope everyone feels better soon, particularly poor little Teddi.
