Home!

Knew that we were firmly back home this morning, when at 6.45 a.m. eldest daughter shouted at daughter number two for having used the last pair of natural coloured tights. Apparently it was the fault of daughter number two that no other tights were available, because she hadn't been away last week. I proffer a pair of barely black tights. ED shouts that she can't wear barely black and that I know that. Daughter number two gratefully accepts the barely black, whilst daughter number one waits for daughter number two to pass her the last pair of natural ones.

We then scrabble around for the bus fare. Not enough cash in the house to buy a weekly pass, so between us hubby and I manage to scrape enough together for today's fare. Will have to do some major moving around of overdrafts today to fund family to the end of the month. Thankfully only a few days away. Hope the tenants pay on time.

Think of bizarre price of business class tickets from Madrid. I guess we are not the first parents of an angel to be paying huge mortgage on huge house for huge family and struggling to get to the end of the month, while at the same time discussing how best ED can save her money in a high interest account ready for university.

House looks like Hiroshima. Can't find anything. Million things to do, but can't remember what.

I'm SO tired!!!

Still, the "Orange" Spain Christmas ad campaign will be released on 4th December, so will scour internet for photos of ED then.....

That will cheer me up.

Welcome back Sally!

But you're glad to be home anyway, right?

I hate the last week before payday as well, especially at this time of year.

Absolutely. And yes it was lovely to get home. The other kids had really missed me, and I had really missed them. The last time that I spent more than 24 hours away from any of them was two years ago, when we went away for the weekend for a birthday party, and the only time that I have ever spent as much time away from them before was when Emily (eldest)was a baby, almost 16 years ago, so it was really strange being away, and very nice to be back. Will ignore mess and thank my blessings!!

Wow.

I don't read for a couple of days and look what happens.

Hi Damian!

I would say that there is an incentive to read every day - but nothing exciting may happen for another year now....

I've looked through your blog, and you are a very busy lady who seems to have it all under control, even if at times it doesn't feel that way.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
