It’s not How You start it’s How You Finish…….

The Finished Product

The Finished Product

Well I did as promised and headed into Wakefield to try to finish the crimbo shopping -I failed, but more because I forgot rather than couldn’t find a few things. I knew I should have made a list! I took advantage of the nice weather and walked into town -it was a lovely walk and yet another of those times I wished I’d taken my camera. But then I would have never got any shopping done. It wasn’t the view that made me long for my camera -spectacular as it was but the remnants of the night before laying on the pavement for all to see – the half drunk bottles,empty glasses and a random ‘Banana Man’ costume – someone must have had a great night and a cold walk home!!

It’s been a day of finishing things off really,the ironing (thanks hubby) the housework and Jack’s english and art homework. I hope they don’t get any for the crimbo holidays  -we all need a rest. I think he’s quite enjoyed his English – not that he’d ever admit it, but ‘write your own ‘Mr Men’ story has definitely grabbed his attention. So now we have a new version ‘Mr Punch’ a nasty little fellow who goes round…….you’ve guessed it -punching everyone, that is until the other little Mr Men show him the error of his ways -sorted!! Then there was his Art – do your own version of M C Esher (never heard of him – actually I had once I looked at his stuff! ) taking into account his use of doors, arches and staircases. Doddle -maybe not! ! Jack knew what he wanted to do -build it in lego – great idea -until we realised how long it was going to take. We’ve improvised -it’s been like a Blue Peter Project (Kids programme for those not living in the UK) in our front room for the last 3 weeks, all I can say is thank god Ernie’s better at arty stuff than me -I just like looking!! Anyway with a little help with the tricky bits (a-hem) it’s finished. I hope Jack gets a good grade or his Dad will cry!!

Nearly finished what we started

Back to work tomorrow

Bring it on

Busy Busy Busy……………..

BARLA-YouthJuniorFinalsTwo blogs in one night is good going, especially when you consider the busy day we’ve had but I just wanted to wish the lads good luck for tomorrow in my own little way. Yes, finally the BARLA cup finals are almost upon us and are one of the reasons for a very busy Saturday – still it will be worth it once we’re on the coach tomorrow.

Thankfully, for some reason we woke ridiculously early this morning. So we’ve managed to fit in crimbo shopping, crimbo tree decorating, a bit of tidying up and I’ve been out for tea with my ‘Big Bro’ as well as packing up the kit, ironing the matchday jumpers (all 21 of them – mind you last year I had shirts as well!) and getting my camera and stuff ready. Now I’m finally sitting down and contemplating whether a glass of wine will help me to relax – i hope it will. These pre-match day nerves are tough (good job I’ not playing). Hopefully I’ll get a better sleep tonight – last night I dreamt the opposition turned up wearing top hat n tails and I had to give CPR to a man with plastic lips – Mmm so that means what exactly!!!

Chuffed to have got so much done

Proud Mum tomorrow – no matter what

Bring it on
