A day in the life ....

of me....
I booked two days holiday for today and tomorrow a couple of weeks back- thinking stupidly that the weather would be nice as it's August but hey ho that was not to be !
Today started with rain - and more rain....and also youngest son has been suffering with a bad back for about a month now.Despite several visits to have it manipulated etc it is still not good and he has been complaining of a pain in his chest recently so it was off to the doctors this morning....
This probably sounds a bit daft - but when you work full time - it's so nice to just do 'boring normal' things -those things that you always have to fit in at lunch time in a rush- like doctor's and dentist's appointments.
Also- imagine my delight when I switched the tv on and guess what was on ...(like it wasn't planned !)

Nothing like a bit of Anna Griffin to cheer a miserable day up

It was off to the soggy town to drop son off to the doctors - even the bunting couldn't brighten up the high street..
                                                     Our little museum was deserted -
So I sat and waited for him in the car - doing a bit more of my 'Christmas' blanket while I waited.

Luckily he wasn't too long and came back armed with painkillers and antibiotics - so it was home for lunch -
 then before we knew it - other son had arrived as it is himself's birthday today and they are all off to North London tonight to watch Spurs together.
It was so lovely to have them all here at the same time as it won't be long before youngest son is back at Uni and then middle son is moving down to the same area with his girlfriend (the boys were at the same Uni )
So I did the 'Mum' thing and made them all stand together for a group shot before they went off .
Deb Turtle - if you are reading this - you will laugh at one of himself's birthday cards .....it had to happen one day......

So that was my day today - and now Anna Griffin is on again so I'm home alone and curling up on the sofa for a bit of crafting-does anyone else out there still like Anna's stuff?

I watched a bit of QVC myself today...enjoyed the Sizzix hour best.
Hope your son's soon better.

It sounds like you actually picked the right days then for your hols. I do hope your son gets better soon.

I am loving the photos :)

Hope your son's back is on the mend. Abserdly enough, yesterday I caught David tuned into Create and Craft! What is going on there?

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Haha. Yep. I LOL'd about the card. So cute! And I'm glad you convinced all of your boys to get together for a group shot! Well done, Mum! ;o)

They should all know by now that having them all together means a compulsory photo!
Love the Alice birthday card, I bet not many people will be receiving one of those ;-)

I hope they all had a wonderful time together (and that the back held up!)

It's raining here too. I'm playing the hang the washing out and then bring it back in again game

Glorious British Weather eh?!
Hope your son gets better with antibiotics ... my eldest suffered from inexplicable chest pains twice during his sixth form ... the first time it did get better and the second time he was diagnosed with a spontaneously punctured lung!!! Quite common in teenage boys apparently - it healed a lot quicker than the first incident! Hoping your son's is just a chest infection - but bear this in mind if it gets worse!

I had the email about Christmas Crafts on QVC but didn't get time to drop in & see what was happening!! Saved myself some money I guess!! I love Anna Griffins style & ordered BIG time last time she was on!! The only thing about QVC is the P&P charge, sometimes I think it negates the great value of some of the items!! Did you spend?...or were you just viewing?!!

Hope your son's back is better soon!

Fab photos and (confession time) I've got that Alice Cooper album!!!

Did you succumb to anything from QVC?
