Hi girls,
I just booked my tickets home. I am going in August now, was planning on June, but I'll take August due to work, and now I'll be home for my Mum's birthday She's just got off the phone from me, all choked up, hope it's cos she's happy?
Aspergers is a mild form of autism, Britain is only just coming to terms that the so called 'bad' kids can now be daignoesed with different things for behaviours and such.
Cathy, you ate a DIY woman indeed, fixing broken tiles, well done to you. I'm hopeless at DIY of any sort, when we first moved to AZ, Dave rigged up a washing line for me and it fell down when he was at work, we had friends temperarily living with us until their house was ready, so me and my friend got the drill out, to put it back up, thought I had a clue what I was doing, I didn't! I tried drilling a hole in a brick wall for a hook and raw plug, with not drill bit attachments, but the little tiny bits that you can use on the drill to screw stuff in. Needless to say, I didn't even begin to make a hole in the wall, but managed to ruin all the screw bits, and didn't tell Dave, until months later when he went to use them for another DIY project OOPS!
It's stopped raining here now and is quite mild out, eve a little bit close feeling. Dave is busy outside cleaning the BBQ's and I'm in here, supposed to be finishing up that bloody laundry and cleaning....
So I had better get off here, and then we can have a relaxing afternoon together? Does that ever happen I wonder?
Take it easy girls, talk later.

Thanks Shad. Poor Teel. Have just sent her friend Simon an email asking him to pass on our love and best wishes to Teel and to let her know that she is our prayers during this difficult time.

Kinda makes my blood pressure and child problems fade into insignificance

Ahhhhh, poor Teel, I was wondering where she'd got to this week. Poor little lovey. I hope she feels better soon.
I e-mailed her friend as well, he'll probably be shocked as to who all these strange e-mails are coming from.
Teel, come back soon, we miss you

Had my friends kids staying over last night, they have known my two all their lives and all get on well, they were all a bit excited to start off with but soon got that out of their systems. But why did it take them until nearly 1 o' clock this morning to go to sleep and then where did they find the energy to be up and about just after 7 this morning. Ray is still sleeping and after they have gone home I'll probably need a sneaky hour in my bed, am quite looking forward to it

Is raining cats and dogs here today. I have to clean some of the rubbish out of my car before it takes over completely. If I leave it a while it may eventually stop raining. I want to go out and do some exercise as well, either a walk or a gentle bike ride - nothing to strenous today

Also have a house like a bombsite but hey nothing new there

Just realised the clocks went forward an hour last night so I guess the kids really slept until 8. Took me until I heard Grant on the radio and I wondered why he was on at 9 instead of 10, so I checked the time on the 'puter

duh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi girls,
Carol, you sound more like your old self again luv, good for you
I've been busy since my 'date' around the commissary with hubby, it was so romantic, us both pushing trolleys side by side. We spent a fortune, but once again, there's loads of healthy low fat foods in the house.
The clocks don't go forward over here until next weekend, I wonder why that is?
I've been busy since unpacking all the groceries, it took me nearly an hour to get everything away. I've done more laundry, swiffered and mopped and cleaned two bathrooms, the third one is still waiting on being done. Bought new pine oil for washing the floors today, it smells orangy, very pleasant to smell and it is supposed to drag the dirt to the bottom of the bucket so as you're not using dirty water to mop every where once you've dipped the mop in for a refresh. The water still looks filthy to me, but what do I know about all these scientific inventions
Right, must clean loo number three. Am eating reat, am only on four points so far
Veggie, I tried your SW chips, bloody loverly they are, thanks.
Going now...........
