Well got ff to a bad start when I got up at the crack of dawn to check the results of Strictly Come Dancing. It was not good at all.
The electric then kept blowing the trip dpwnstairs which meant problems with breakfast. It was a very cold frosty morning and the roads so slippery. We all went off to church, where so many folk seemed to be ill!
Dont think I have ever warmed all day. Called at a friend's late afternoon, had not seen her for ages. Funny how the fast way we live lets friendships get knocked aside. We had so much to catch up on.
Daughter made tea, bless her, then another friend rang and we chatted for ages.
I am curled up in front of an open fire with a nasty touch of pmt debating wether I should watch SCD or not.
I feel so sorry for hubby and son out on the farm in this awful weather.

so long for now.

am so cold and cant get motivated to do any housework, especially my growing pile of ironing.
I am convinced housework was invented by men to keep the little woman happy.

about me

I am a forty something housewife. Married for over 21 years. I have a son 20 and a daughter 17.
We have had a pretty eventful 2008.
I am an avid bookworm and rarely seen with out a book except when on the computer, which I also can be addicted.
I have arthritis from I was 30 which attacks most of my joints. I went arround for almost 6 weeks with out realising my arm was broken this year as I thought it was an arthritis flare up!.
It was not a good year for our business, but we are still there. A relative who was ill from last christmas died. We ment some lovely friends for the first time in the spring. Then hubby and I went away for our first weekend away since we married! Daughter was doing GCSE's, then she took extremely ill. She has recently had heart surgery.
We had a lovely holiday abroad . ok it was only a week but it was fun and met my friend Rita, who was there too. I cant wait to go back.
