Place your bets now.....

Another day......and still no house work done. Oh well. hehehehe I've been to the Dr this morning since I decided that two weeks is long enough to put up with a sore throat. OUCH! Anyway, I'm now on the delights of antibiotics for a week. I have to take them four times a day, an hour before food! Eh? Feel free to place bets on how long it takes for me to bugger that up, then!

I got my news the other day, and that is that I am starting a weekly blog on a rather large Weightloss site next week! YAY! It's a bit more money coming in too, which is also a help and I'm just over the moon to be getting paid to write. It's just a dream come true. I'm just delighted to be earning for what I love to do - the future is looking bright :)

Tonight we go to look around the Bean's classroom and hear more about how the next two years or so will pan out for him at his new school. He seems to be settling in better now, although he seems to have some built in radar for getting hurt by the roughest boy in the class. We had this at his last school and, from what he said yesterday, it looks like we may be heading down the same road again. I really laboured this morning for him to STAY AWAY from this boy. We'll have to see whether or not it made any difference at all. I never, ever realised just how hard this whole parenting malarky would be. I thought I was fairly prepared but the whole emotional side is just totally overwhelming. It really makes me realised more how difficult things must have been for my mum when it was just the two of us and after losing her mum aged 13. I never really gave it a thought before she died but I realise more and more what an amazing woman she was. I could not have wished for a better Mummy - she was the best.

I am not looking forward to the school thing at all....

Congrats on your blog job! woohoo!

Forgot to add, leave the bicarb on overnight to absorb as much as possible and vacuum up later. May have to do it a few times...

I could not imagine losing my mum at 13..and I know it is hard for you without her...my mom is getting older and I think about how lost I will be without her and it freaks me out. I am happy for you that you do have found memories of your mother, through your memories her legacy goes on. On a lighter side...congrats on your new blog!! earning more money is always exciting! Can't wait to read your new blog.. :)
