    I did, of course, mean to say 'Glad you got here Beanie'! Surely, just the threat of you going up to 'sort it out' should scare the boiler into submission?!

    I have taken some work to the other Seamstress to do.
     I will try to get a rhythm again today.
     But I still need to get off my backside and get everybody ready for school.
    were all sitting in my bedroom on gadgets! 
    Hope you enjoyed your time with your friend last night Ss. After the xbox problems with ds and dgd perhaps it's better to keep gadgets for after school , work etc and have a different morning routine so the little ones don't see it as a norm. I know they wake early but better to work on keeping them in their room with a book or something. Your room was meant to be your sanctuary and it's no longer that.
    Hope the boiler is behaving today beanie.

    Ss, spreading out the school run sounds a great idea if it is possible.

    Could your son contribute to the costs? Breakfast club is not hugely expensive as i recall.

    It is only £3.90 a day, for the breakfast club. But for making things less rushed it is worth it.
     I am funded for the children now so he doesn't need to pay me money, and I would rather he continues to do down his debts.

    When I die I will know that I have lived, loved, mattered and made a difference, even if in a small way.

    Spent the afternoon taking Biggest's girls to the swimming pool followed by McDonald's.
    dgd wasn't too well so she didn't come this time but I hope that we will be able to do it again soon with her.
     I am waiting for the boys to be returned from the other family, I hope that they are back soon as the weather here is not too good and my fence panels are down between us and the family with 5 dogs!
     I hope that they will sort it as they put it up originally when I first moved in.
