Poorly Sian :(

Have had a day off work today as Sian was ill last night :(

No sooner had she gone to bed than she was sick, still had a temperature this morning so no school for her today) or work for me, so at least some things are good!

I spent the morning watching Nick Jr on the sofa with her then started painting the downstairs toilet. Another coat of paint is needed on the walls and then it's done.

My dad and his wife fly in to Manchester on 23rd, at some ungodly hour, so need to get some decorating finished before then. The dining room and the hall need doing - hopefully will get the dining room done next week then the hall can wait until after Christmas.

I've received some lovely goodies in the post this week: a sheet of Mica (as a RAK from Helenpp), Fridge Magnet swap from UKS, Altered Doorhanger Swap from UKS and an ATC from Sharonfruit. Will take some pics soon, just need some daylight!

Little poser

Sian had a no uniform day at school last week. Great debate went on as to what she wanted to wear. The only certainty was that she was wearing her new pink cowboy boots.

The entire contents of her wardrobe came out, some were immediately rejected and others were contemplated - should I wear this pink top, that pink top or the other pink top? Which skirt goes with this pink top, that pink top or the other pink top?

Eventually she came up with an outfit that she was happy with. In fact, so happy that she insisted I took photographs before school. She moved about, wriggled around and jiggled about until she was completely happy with her pose - and only then was I allowed to take a photo! I think my gorgeous little DD is turning into a real poser!

How much.....

bad luck can one family have??? In the last week and a half we have had:

1. the iron break (not just a normal iron, my super-whizzy steam generator )
2. a huge bill to repair DH's car
3. a massive (and unexpected) bill from the VET
4. the TV blew-up
5. and then at the weekend the Central Heating broke.....

Anyone else want to throw their bad luck my way....

More holiday pics

Blogger hasn't been playing nicely for the last few days so here are the pics I promised earlier in the week. These so the inside of the 'red' cottage - it's so old-fashioned, it makes you take a step back from the everyday pressures and relax.
