Ages since my last post !!!

Ages since my last entry so lots of things should have happened !!!!
Dave got back safely from Goose Bay loaded with goodies . I went back to work after my fight with the flu. We had a snowfall but by morning it had gone.
Finished my mailart envelope so will send it out Monday , will put a photo in when it's been received just in case - don't want to spoil the surprise.
Been working flat out at work the past couple of weeks and have felt too tired to do anything when I got home .
Ellie has been punched twice by the same boy at school so I went to see the headmistress yesterday - hope she does something about it.
Ellie had her school disco yesterday - gosh time is flying by.
Dave went for his resettlement course this week - hard to believe he finishes in July.
May post later if I can think of anything.

Week Over !!!

Well it's Saturday and the weeks over . Thursday and Friday we had thick frost but today we're back to drizzly rain .
Jamie stayed at his friends last night after work (he's split with his girlfriend Tash - aahhh the pains of young love !!!)
Dave is due back from Goose Bay on Monday night . Was really tired last night and cold so packed Ellie off to bed (she was tired as well) and had an early night myself - no stitching , must crack on with it though .
Have put on a couple of pounds again - not really surprised asI lost such a lot in a short time with that flu last week - still got an annying cough .Found out who got the Hive job that I applied for , not overly surprised as she'd been working in a similar job already.
Some lovely mailart swaps have been posted already on the group - must get a shift on with mine .
Have picked up a couple of phone MS jobs , very straightforward .
We weren't very busy at work this week considering Tracey's off but I suspect that will change next week as there's a CO's inspection on one block and my block has a full course intake.
Ellie has been moved up a level in reading and now has a reading age of 9 !!!
Have put aside Kiterunner as the subject is a bit heavy and started some 'chicklit' instead.

Wednesday 12th

Well yesterday went quite well as far as Ellie's birthday goes . Her face was a picture when she saw her scooter - I wish I'd had the camera handy. The cake was good as well - Chocolate coated chocolate swiss roll with sweets on as a caterpillar - shame there was only me and her to appreciate it !!!!
The weather again was awful yesterday , gale force winds and rain . Today was a lot calmer but it's gone very cold. Ended up having an hours sleep with Ellie yesterday evening as we were both cold and tired , she's so cuddly , like a little teddy bear !
Did some stitching but the frog visited so I stopped in the end - think my eyes where tired . Got an email from Dave - he said one of the aircraft has gone u/s so they may be delayed - why am I noy surprised ?!!!

Happy Monday !!!

Euch !!! what a horrible day . The rain was heaving down this morning . Ellie was fine in wellies and raincoat and my top half was dry but by the time I got to work I was squelching in my shoes and my trousers where soaked through .
Busy day as there where only two of us (usually 4) and the other woman only did her own work whearas I was expected to pick up the slack of the other two plus my own !!!
Got some stitching done last night .
Jamie is going into work for a meeting in a minute (6pm) so I'll see him when I see him. Once Ellie's in bed I can sort her cards and presents .
I'll have a bath while she's having her tea and then when she's in bed I'll sit and stitch till Jamie gets in .

First Rambling

Well here I am , everybody else was blogging so I decided to as well.
I've got a busy stitching schedule at the moment , a sampler for Pam of Wild-Hearts Designs USA and an envelope for a Mailart exchange I'm in . On the back burner is my 'The Heir' which I'm itching to get back to .
Reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini at the moment for my book club .
I've been off work ill the past week with this awful flu bug - it wiped me completely and I've lost a bit of weight.
It's Ellie's fifth birthday on Tuesday - bought the cake yesterday. Dave is in Goose Bay till the 17th so again no party arranged maybe we'll do it one year !!!!
Jamie had Thursday off college as well as he'd been ill.
Back to work tomorrow - dread to think what I'll find !!!!
