Well there have been some interesting things going on recently.. some good, some bad! Starting off with a definite bad, last week I was rather pleased with myself that the day was going well.. I intended to get the girls in the bath, cook dinner, then have a peaceful evening. Instead, I started running the bath, then forgot about it. A short while later I got up to find out what the strange noise was, and found a waterfall coming through my kitchen ceiling!
Thankfully it actually wasn’t too bad – the water mainly came through the light fittings, even though it looked worse at the time, so we were saved from a collapsed ceiling. And thankfully the light fittings dried out, and worked perfectly. Phew! The only problem is that the bathroom carpet was ruined, so I now have to wait for hubby to find the energy to fit something new.
Then came good.. Beth and I went to see a ‘shakespeare4kids’ production of Romeo and Juliet, and we both very much enjoyed it. Highly recommended for a fun evening out.
The next day though we flicked back to bad, as I discovered that some *&%$ had gotten hold of my credit card details, and was trying to use them! I’m very grateful to Halifax for picking up on the warning signs quickly, and the account has been shut down.. but it’s not a nice feeling, and it will cause some disruption.
I also had some more worrying news after that, but it’s not something I can go into here.
Back to the good, I had some sweet gifts from the girls for Mother’s Day, and some lovely home made cards. In Amy’s she said I could relax whilst she tidied her room.. but I don’t see much sign of that so far! We also had a nice meal at the Harvester on the Saturday.
Sunday was a tough day, as Beth climbed on a coach at 11am, to go on a week’s school trip.. she of course was very excited, and very happy, but I was surprised just how much I missed her as the coach pulled away! It feels as if it’s going to be a very long week. I’m so looking forward to Friday afternoon, although of course she’ll probably be miserable that it’s over, and she’ll be handing me a big bag of muddy clothes!
So a mixed time at the moment.. hopefully my baby will be back with me soon, and there’ll be no more bad news!
