Space


"Aren't you going to write a blog today" says Hubby. He lists a few of the things that I should have written about by now.

"Well maybe," I say. I have got quite few other things to do.

"Oh yes" he says, I know.

Do I see a slight look of disappointment cross his face?

I suddenly realise that there is more to blogging than meets the eye. It's the "entertain" bit of the marriage contract. You know the bit where you say: Love, honour and entertain. It replaced the "obey" bit which, not being a submissive type I didn't do.

I took the entertain clause as an alternative. It's a silent vow of course. Not one the rest of you - or me - know about. But it's there nevertheless.

It is of course school holiday time here in sunny Gloucestershire - well for all but eldest son whose school seems to have decided to run on a different timetable to the rest of Gloucestershire Education Authority. This therefore means that access to the computer at times when I might want to use it, is limited.

Computers need to be used for so many important things: fish feeding ("Are you going to be long on the computer Mummy?" says aged 6, "not too long" I say, "Why", because if we don't feed the fish, they will die!!!")

and.........

Bebo

and.............

MSN

and.............





Oh yes ................coursework and.................. homework.

and Bebo and MSN....................


Added to that is the fact that I do, being holiday time again, have some admin to do for the stage school's that I run (when I can get near the busy computer), otherwise no-one will turn up on Saturday and no fees will be paid this term.

But I HAVE got lots to write about........................ and will soon. I promise. So watch this space!

Thank you!

Ah I thought you were being rather quiet :)

I'm pretty sure it is the other kids who are on odd holiday times. My school holiday was always one week either side of Easter. I took the same holiday this year, choosing to spend the extra week of holiday at work to make up for lost hours while back in Yateley.

Back to work now though. Roll on the summer holiday!

Asha said...

HAHA!! Sounds like every blogger I know.I forget to eat on time sometimes!

Take it easy and take care Sally.

Lisa said...

Can't wait Sally!

Alice Band said...

Christ alive I hate MSN and bloody Bebo. My dad bought my 14 year old and 11 year old their own laptops for Christmas. My son and I row about nothing else.

Poor Sally, see you soon.

Beccy said...

Wey hey Sally my blogroll loves you today!!!

My children were back to school this week after two weeks off. The weather was so great and Dillon is madly in love with his new(ish) girlfriend who he saw lots of that I had plenty of computer time. Lucky me.

Hi Hubby!
It's a two way thing this entertain thing btw, so I'll expect to be serenaded with chocolates and flowers later.
Ignorminious - Me - quiet??? Roll on the summer holiday indeed. I actually love the holidays really. I don't have to get up! Bliss!!
Asha - I too. And forget to feed the children on time at lunchtime sometimes. They always get fed, but timings can be a bit off!
Lisa - Thanks!
Alice - Glad to have company in my thoughts about *** and ****!!!
John G - Not really poor me. Hope I made you laugh!
Beccy - Ah........young love. Tell us more!!

Hope you get the chocs and flowers!

hubby said...

Trouble is, the pollen...

Sally Lomax said...

Pollen Hubby?

Great stuff. Take a supplement every day. Removes all symptoms of hay fever from flowers. Especially nice large fancy bouquets. You should try it!

enidd said...

hubby, enidd recommends orchids. not much pollen at all and reassuringly expensive.

sally, please continue to entertain us all! enidd for one misses you.

Sally Lomax said...

Good idea enidd!
