Hello dear friends, I love the above quote it made me giggle!
I hope you have had a lovely Friday. Mine has been very nice, I spent most of the morning chatting to my eldest two boys then Liam (I can write his name without worrying as he reads my blog and comments with his name) went off to work and I cleaned the house for a bit. This afternoon I sat with my thirteen year old and we chatted lots and then he asked me what I thought he should draw, I replied a frog I don't know why, it was the first thing that came into my mind. So he drew a tree frog, this is just the outline as he hasn't shaded it yet.
We was talking about what options he wanted to take when he returns to school next week, his first four options are Geography, RE, PE and Media studies but he also has to put down three alternatives just in case the timetable can't be arranged for what he has chosen. We discussed Coding or IT, History (although when I went to the options evening I was advised against History because he will struggle with the time limit on the exam, he has to plan before he writes his answers and is very meticulous so his teacher advised if he had an extra hour for the exam he would do really well but in the time they have he wouldn't get the last questions finished, and I suggested Art as I think my son is quite good (I might just say I can't even draw stickman so I'm probably not the best person to advise him) but he said he is no where near good enough to pass the exams. Its such a big decision argh!
Late afternoon, I watched one of the DVDs that Liam got me for mothers day, it was of him when he was born. It was lovely to watch and his sweet little new born cry made me want to pick him up out of the Tele and cuddle him. How time flies.
Today I achieved:-
- Hovered upstairs and downstairs
- Cleaned the downstairs toilet
- Cleaned the upstairs bathroom
- Cleaned the kitchen
- One load of washing
- De-cobwebbed the conservatory (as my mum pointed out several cobwebs to me the other day- thanks mum)
For lunch I had a toasted egg, rocket and cucumber sandwich.
Finally for dinner I had a chicken and egg salad (but I didn't take a photo, oops)
I also drank some coconut and pineapple water as it is full of antioxidants, it has quite an unusual flavour.
I sold two items on Ebay today and I listed another six items.
I will be heading up to have a nice relaxed bath shortly as I have to get up early tomorrow morning, my thirteen year old is going off for the day in preparation for his first Duke of Edinburgh expedition in two weeks time. He has to take a lot of stuff with him, including a camping stove to cook his own food. At least he is learning to survive on his own.
I have just received an email, my daughter entered the BBC2 500 word essay competition,they had over 123,400 entries and they have put 4,500 through to the second round and she has been picked to go through. I am so delighted for her.
Have a lovely evening and take care xx
