This post should have been written on Sunday evening. Now I can hardly remember half of what went on. Plus FAR FAR too much has happened since.
SO anyway Sunday we went off to my parents up on the coast. We had a lovely day. Took the kids all down to the sea front to play on the two pence machines with all the spare change we’d gathered from the house. I think it was over £10 but its not missed because it was all gathered change and everyone enjoyed themselves, still cheaper than buying everyone icecreams. Lunch was delicious and mum cooked up a storm for everyone. The entire clan turned up so there were 15 round the table. Thing is, this is probably the last time we do that for a while because mum has to go back to chemotherapy tomorrow. boo!
I also got back home on Sunday night in time to purchase some yarn from posh yarn. I LOVE her stuff. It is quite fabulous and I can recommend it to any knitter. She mainly does sales on Sunday nights, so get in now if there is anything left because there wont be an update next week.
Saturday I nipped to the shops and bought Gran a hyacinth. She loved it. I also found some “worlds best cat litter” which is bio degradable and flush-able! wow, it really works. I’m just trying to get our boys used to it. They are settling down well now and I think they are happy here in their new home.
Monday I got up early because I remembered I had to go to cover the Cambridge office whilst my colleague took a well earned day off for his birthday. This was something I don’t mind doing but there were quite a few issues.
1, it took me 2 hours to get there. 2, I did a LOT of work 3, by the end of the day I was exhausted and tired because I woke up far too early for me plus all the driving hurt my back and shoulders.
Because of those points I drove my little Honda jazz directly to the Honda dealers when I got back to Norwich and asked what they could do for me. I looked at a few cars, fobbed them off for a bit and asked for them to find me a better price. After going home and checking with Scotty, today I have been called back with a more suitable figure and I’ve paid a deposit on a new car. All a bit fast for me but I’d rather be comfortable with a new car than struggle with that trip to Cambridge again. I’m very very excited because now we will be getting a proper sporty Honda Civic. Not the top of the range but just enough that we can afford it. Driving comfort here we come!
So yeah, lots happening and no knitting, boo! Its not that I don’t want to, its time to do it, clean, tidy, cook, eat, look after the cats, sleep and work, organisation and bills are all getting in the way. Hopefully this weekend I can knuckle down to it and finish off a few things.
Looks like its all a bit expensive. It is, what with payments towards the wedding, the car, not having paid the vet yet for Erasmus and then yarn on top. I think I’m going to have to cut up all my plastic as soon as I get all my bills up to date 🙂 good thing I’ve got savings, although they wont last for ever its nice to spend sometimes. At least I feel like all of these things are going to make life better in the long run.
