    Nearly there!

    Got the euros today. Exchange rate is rubbish not far off €1 for £1 now.

    Can't believe how warm it was today.

    Mr SA has reeled off a long list of things he needs for holiday including shorts, aviator sunglasses and a shaver. Bearing in mind the ordeal we had trying to get shorts for him in August. Have made it clear to him we are taking what we took to Ibiza last month there is no need for anything new. To be honest he's been driving me nuts again tonight, he has done nothing but hassle me about what he wants/needs. The stress levels are quite high tonight.

    And breathe ...

    Tell him if he doesn't stop going on you are going by yourself next time. There is always respite available ! :D
    I Believe.....
    That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
    Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery
    Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

    Does he remember what all his current stuff looks like? Do you see where I'm going with this if he doesn't?

    Friday :j
    Payday :j
    Broke up from work for 2 weeks :j
    4 more sleeps to Lanzarote :j

    Taff I know what you mean. Today he said he needed shorts for holiday, said he hasn't got any. Then he looked in his suitcase and lo and behold 5 pairs of shorts! I rest my case.

    The coffee morning was a great success, we sold all our cakes in the first hour and we had a lot of cakes.

    Had a fab lunch with my friends :)

    Just cooking dinner - using up a sweet potato tonight, having scampi (half a bag left over in freezer), sweet potato chips and veg. Will be putting my feet up with a glass of cava shortly :)
