And another week bites the dust. time is going too, too fast to keep up. In some fantasy world I thought I would have all this free time to become a Stepford Wife. Yeah right, nothing like being in cloud cuckoo land! For example this week I have
- My new part-time job;
- 8 candidates to see and assess;
- DPP course, and my teaching is being assessed!;
- PTLLS course - and it's the micro-teach time, so more assessing to see if I'm any good! As I've chosen scrapbooking, need to create 8 packs for the people assessing me. Bit worrying if I'm not after all the teaching I've done. Plus all the assignments!;
- I have an appointment with the fella that's helping me sort out the paperwork for the shop;
- last quilting class, so that's not going to be manic much!
- Hours and hours and hours and hours..... of paperwork to hit all my deadlines for this week. So yes, good point, why am I blogging! I suppose I also ought to find time to feed the family, do the washing, ironing, cleaning, blah, blah, blah. Keep up with my cyber buddies :) and maybe meet up with a few friends. Oh yes, right, who needs a social life. Mind you did go to one of my oldest friends divorce party at the weekend. Well actually DH and me both went. Bless him. Did he get much stick, him and only 1 other fella, all the rest were divorced women! So I had a good evening!

Right, gtg type up an assignment. Oh, and I forgot to mention, blooming boiler packed up on Sunday. Certainly knew the coldest weekend to do that!

Up and down....up and down......up and down........Feeling seasick yet? Typical few days in my life.

We go up........ I got my A1 upgrade through and the IV's let me see the report. They don't normally, but they thought as it was so good I'd like to see it :)

We go down..... DS3's on report.

We go up...... Since DD's splash in the pool, she's been dry all week :)

We go down.......DS2 has a days exclusion tomorrow for swearing at the teacher. No sympathy, he shouldn't have done it! And I get to see the Director of his house and decide what on earth we're going to do with him!

We go up...... I have passed my first 2 assignments for the PTLLS course L4 (that's good!). And I have got a part-time job 20 hours a week :) On top of the teaching, so yay, might see some money at the end of.....oh December! But in this current climate a jobs a job!

We go down...... You know, I know there's something, but I'll be blessed if I can remember what it is!

We go up.......A friend got the all clear from a lump :)

And tomorrow I'm being treated to a Starbucks with another friend :) This week has not been too bad.

Well hello strangers. It's been a month since I had to give up the keys to the shop. In some ways it's been a lifetime, but it's also only yesterday. Hence the lack of posts. Who feels like being cheery and upbeat when life's a bit yeuck. But I have had the most wonderful support from some people - you know who you are, give yourselves a pat on the back. Go on, at least try. Then video it, send it over, so we can all have a giggle!

So, apart from not having a business anymore, and therefore no money and a lot of debts, what else has been happening?

DS3 ended up in casualty having nearly split his lip in 2 -only 2 days after one of his best mates ended up in same casualty after losing a fight with a catherine wheel. Will they ever grow any brains? No, I don't think so either.

DD decided to go for a swim in the hydropool at school - and the problem? Oh that would be that she had had her session, got out, dried and then decided to go back in - fully clothed right to her shoes! And this'll be after getting a star for not wetting herself all day! Gotta love the irony.

I found my Hermes bracelet and troll bracelet :) I had given up ever seeing them again. I was heartbroken over the troll, as well as every bead being a gift, or having some meaning, I had put my grans wedding ring on it. But hey, just goes to show, it pays to clean your bedroom sometimes! And when you swap things from one bag to another - swap it all! So thanks Anna for the prayers to St Anthony, he must have been listening :)

Went to a firework display round one of DH's mates - lovely evening :)

DS1 had his 17th birthday - no I know, hard to believe I have a 17 year old isn't it! I just look so young :) No cracks about maturity either!

I've become a Care Ambassador - go look it up if you're that interested!

And that's about it. Tbh at the moment I'm just concentrating on keeping a roof over our head. But we have each other, and our health, and friends and family that are the best - both irl and cyber buddies :)
