Can't believe it's 10 days since I blogged! Busy as ever. So what's been happening?
DS1 has had another police visit - waiting for the outcome for that one. Interesting fact though, both when DS2 had the escapade with the washing-up liquid and the fountain :) and this recent event, both boys, once given their name were asked if ****** was their dad. Now far be it from me to put 2 and 2 together, but what difference does it matter who their dad is? As it happens the gentleman in question is not their dad, but is related. So obviously in the eyes of the local police my boys must be guilty because they are related to their uncle. The fact that DH has never so much as received a parking fine is irrelevant. But, despite that DS1 has turned a corner and has been much calmer, more polite, and generally 'all round good guy' . He's even agreed to go back on his ritalin for year 11 as he appreciates what an important year it is.
DS2, no change, still working out and not asking the girl out! Went to his first live gig and loved it. Mates of his at school have a band and apparently they are 'well good'. He is very much into his music, and his favs range from MCR to Elvis. Sounds just like me.
DS3, well, bless, what can you say!
DD won a running race at school! YAY! was the first thought. The second was, b****r, that's not going to go in her favour with the disability allowance. Then put it into context. She beat other SN kids who also run about 10 steps before falling over, she just got up quicker! So not worried just yet! She received a certificate for which she was very proud, until she cottoned on that every single child got one!
Been working hard. Buying season. Going into sale Monday, so non-stop, 6 days this week. Not impressed. Finances are a bit of a nightmare still, so been shopping around for loan.....
We can offer you £18,500. Okay, that could help. Repayments are £247 a month. Okay, sounds reasonable. Over 27 years. Sorry, how long? Must have misheard! Over 27 years. Calculator out. So that's repaying £80,000. Thanks, for some reason can't see DH going for that!
Sunday we were all going out. The usual, do I have to, it's boring, rubbish from the older boys. We're all going out, deal with it. Once a year the adoption society have a family fun day. The inference boys on family. So, leave only 10 mins late and 1 small fracas over who sits where in the car. Met good friends of ours there who also adopted their youngest who is a fab little lad, and who happens to be my Godson, so of course I'm not biased! Swimming, cricket, cakes, football, ice-cream, and most amazingly, sun!
Oh, and I'm almost too embarassed to admit this, but I've got hooked on Big Brother. I know, I'm hanging my head in shame!
