Another hectic Saturday

and I ache all over ................... the vinyl finally put down in the en-suite - 12 months ago we had that leak and it ruined the old vinyl.  We have done so much in the house over the last few months, I say 'we' that is the Royal we because it really is me that does everything - or arranges for men to come in and do the work etc.  Nightmare really as I would love some help.  Finding things difficult recently, and as I said today I ache all over after dismantling the bed to clean underneath as my bed is so heavy it is difficult to move much easier to dismantle it and put it back together again;  ha ha 'she says'.

Tomorrow ordering the mosaic tiles for the splash back in the kitchen as its not tiled and has marked badly with cooking etc.................something else that I have to sort but at least Key will have to tile I don't think I could do that.

Still waiting on the wardrobes.....................and still have the en-suite to emulsion and decorate the half bedroom where the wardrobes are going.  Have to do things bit by bit these days.  Wish I had the energy to do it all - and do as much as I used to do.  Even when I have booked days off work to do decorating I don't have the energy to decorate all day.  Ah well, such is life.

Love the floor but still got to paint the wall.

how beautiful are these mosaics

you cant have good things all the time you have to have balance

Poor Sebastian Died today - a car hit him right by Keirs and Alis home,  they didnt know, they didn't sleep well and this morning at 8 am someone contacted them to tell them they had took his body to the vets locally.  how sad, he was such a lovely cat.


Sunday, 11 September 2016


you do not realise when you get older how much 'work' takes it out of you.  So I tied myself in knots trying to get in my little en-suite to decorate (gloss paint) all around the woodwork and under the sink etc, my goodness last night and this morning i really ached.

then today had the vinyl man come to quote as the floor (after the leak) drove me mad for the last 6 months - can't wait until it's all done, going to give it a real blast this week to get everything finished before the vinyl fitting on Saturday - I hope.

Then me and Korin went to Argos to get her a new mattress - one of these that folds into my small car - you unwrap it and it springs to life as it's a foam one - very comfortable but don't know if it will last very long.

Then we went to the baby scan to find our FIRST grandchild will be a girl.  I pray things are OK and they move into their new little house and have a wonderful family life together.

Then we went to the Harvester for a meal - my goodness I was almost knackered by then.

THEN we went to mothercare and we (Key and I) bought them the bedroom furniture for the nursery, beautiful items - which I hope they appreciate.  Well Keir rang and said thank you - we can't keep doing this though - we aren't a bottomless pit of money.

Then I had to come home and walk dog.  Cook for Key, Morrisons order and finally relax.

knackered as the heading says.

It's a GIRL

and I don't mind one little bit.  Alison was so happy to have a girl......... all I pray is that the baby is fine and well and a beautiful little girl will make the family complete for them - well for now.  A few weeks and they will be settled in their new home and a number of weeks later they will be welcoming their baby girl.  Can't wait.

Sex of the baby scan

we didn't find out the cord was between the babys legs but the sonographer kinda intimated that it's a boy.....................which I am very pleased with, although I know that Alison wanted a little girl because of all the little dresses and beautiful clothes you can get for a girl - having said all that I also think it's because they already have a grandchild of a boy !  -  I hope it's a boy.  Another scan on Sunday will hopefully let us know, although I really feel that it should be a surprise on the day.

Sex of the baby scan ....................... can't wait

Keir said tonight that Mina had asked if I wanted to be present at the scan which she has paid for to find out the sex of the baby.......................I think this is very nice of her as I dreaded finding out via Minas facebook page later on the Sunday.  Hope I do get to go and find out - so excited.

Hate jordan and the people at work

constantly asking if I want cake and sweets and biscuits ................. I have said time and time and time again that I am diabetic and PLEASE do not keep asking if i want bisccuits and cakes etc, so they say EVERY TIME, Gill I'm not going to ask you but if you want one - how fucking stupid are they, how fucking nasty are they, sick sick sick of it all.  So I called HIM in and with other Supervisor and have basically said if it doesn't stop then I shall have to take it to Occy Health.  Whether they will bother doing anything AGAIN I don't know, just so fed up and Supervisors - well they wouldn't be able to organise a piss up in a brewery.  So annoyed.
