The Royal Wedding.

Now I have never been a royal follower however I guess I am in a nostalgic mood.

Since the TV are force feeding the Royal Family on an hourly basis I guess it has caught my eye.

Memories from my childhood & Diana's wedding with the scrapbooks, street parties etc are all flooding back into my mind. For some reason I feel an urge to ensure that my children see the wedding as it is part of their heritage!

I was going to throw a party but after having English friends over for 5 days...too much drink & chatting late into the night I do not have the energy.

So tomorrow William & Kate I will get up at 5am and toast you with my mimosa's, scones & bagels. Along with my sleepy & most probably grumpy children all for a little heritage!  My neighbour will probably join me and we will be in our PJ"S!

A need for completion

I'm running around like a headless chicken and I need to learn to say NO!

Due to my "soft get" attitude during the school vacation which I have to work half of I seem to have said yes to :
  • going & turning the eggs that we are hatching at school every other day
  • adopting all the seeds that we are growing at school & making sure they are fed & in the sun etc
  • watching a distant neighbours animals.....without finding out what they were beforehand...a dog/2 cats & a big turtle
  • another friend asked if we could watch their 9 week old puppy for a husband gave me the evil eye!!! I did say no though.
I have a list of stuff I need to complete as I find that everything is not finished & it is giving me this backed up & overwhelming feeling...all my own fault! Very disconcerting!

So this week I am going to accomplish:

  • finish my sweater that I am knitting
  • read a book
  • get haircuts for all the kids & myself
  • hopefully a day at the seaside
  • clear out the wardrobes & get the summer clothes out
  • wash all the ski gear....that was in progress however on Saturday we had 4 inches of slushy snow!
  • pay all the bills on time
  • stop & enjoy some peace
Wish me luck!

Where have I been?

Wow I did not realise how long it has been since I have blogged!

I guess Spring is here which involves lots of preparation from ski-ing to hand washing!
