Days of the week are arbitrary- if I don't like'em I change'em. Problem?
Anyhow I was out the last two days. Wednesday I taught Music all morning in (the Primary) school, raced home to get Dilly packed and to the Dublin train, up to school to collect BBug, down town so she could buy her best friend a birthday present (a Cookery book, and a magnet-'I don't need your attitude, I've one of my own'- TOO TRUE!), home to feed people...
And yesterday I went from the school run to a day out in Enniskillen with the folks and Travelling Sis, which was very nice, and then collapsed into bed on my return- guess the teaching caught up with me.
Before I forget I do have a few Thankfuls:
1. Thankful for such lovely sunny days this week, not warm, but very beautiful.
2. Thankful Dilly was home for several days, and will be home again next week.
3. Thankful for Dilly's diagnosis, and strong pain medication for her.
4.Thankful that BBug's practical Music Exam went well on Tuesday, the first item on her Junior Certificate. 'Well begun is half done!'
5. Thankful for two new pairs of jeans yesterday- yeah, yeah, I know that violates the Dottie Angel Challenge rules but when one has an arse the width of the proverbial BARN DOOR there's not a hope in the hot place of getting jeans to go round one from the Charity shops! So There!
A friend sent me a few jokes which I posted next door...
And now another beautiful day- and d'you know what they're forecasting for next week?
MORE *~*~*~* SNOW!!
Can you BELIEVE it?
Its mid- April, no leaves on the trees, the daffodils and spring flowers just up, no growth in the grass; the farmers are going demented trying to keep their animals in fodder, and some have lost lambs already due to last weeks' lousy weather. At an estimate I'd say we are running about six weeks late in the growing season right now. S, below us, hasn't even put out his cows yet, I had a good long chat with him this morning- I'm no farmer but a very nosy parker and I like to know how it is in the fields!
Now I've to tidy the sitting room as Dilly left a mess, catch up on the laundry, and push the furniture back into place in the spare room so I can sew. The Hub is away doing a course tonight and tomorrow, and I seem to have mislaid Sos, but no doubt she'll turn up at some point...
