HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I have had a lovely Christmas. Jeff has been off since 22nd and doesn't go back till 6th January, his first Christmas break in 5 years. We have been to Church; had family and friends over; eaten too much; drank too much; and had an altogether perfect holiday.
Other news includes -
Ella is now 10;
Josh is now 16;
Ella threw a paddy during her school nativity and refused to join in (whilst on the stage!) ;
I have completed my Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector course;
I am moving forward from the nightmare of the shop and all the legal stuff. Anybody hear me moaning about it feel free to give me a clip round the ear! :
We have just replaced the kitchen floor with good quality laminate flooring for a tenner - gotta love that man and his bargains! ;
Had a get together with Jeffs side of the family :) ;
Finally got to an all-day crop of MJ's - yay! :
Finished my quilt - and ok, it's not brilliant, loads of mistakes, but I love it :) :
Jeff christened the car after a night out with Jeanette, Pete, Sandra and Derek - and I don't mean in a good way! Josh was impressed, me less so ;
Ben's school report was fab, exceeded his expectations in nearly all his classes:
I have read ALL the Harry Potter books now :) I started The Deathly Hallows 4pm last Saturday and finished reading it at 5.10 Sunday morning! Jeff woke up at 4am, looked at me, said "You've got to be kidding me", rolled over and went back to sleep! LOL! :
And probably loads more, but it's New Years Eve and I want to go curl up with my quilt, some chocolate and a Baileys! OMG I've just read that back - what a difference to when I used to be at an all night party. Oh well, my excuse is I couldn't get a sitter. What do you mean? Of course I tried. Ahem.
