Breath...it's Friday!

What a week. While the rest of the country has been basking in glorious sunshine with soaring temperatures we have had the usual ragged clumps of broken cloud blowing over – sun occasionally colouring the land in bright shifting patches but mostly the world has been grey and windswept. I did manage to get a few wash loads hung out on the line this past week – the wind blew fitfully enough to dry the lot so l was pleased.


Update on the bathroom refit : After lots of measuring, discussion and basic sketching for our bathroom we are venturing across the water tomorrow to visit a large showroom full of bathroom furniture, etc. This will give us an idea of what might work- l had thought of putting in an offset corner bath but need to see them now to be sure. I am the 'bath' person in this house- the boys prefer to shower so l definitely want one where l can stretch out and relax.


Our Sam is away out to school today dressed up as Willy Wonka- his school is hosting a 'Dahlicious' dress up party and all the children have to come dressed as a character from one of his books- Roald Dahl. The money raised with go to his Children's Charity raising money for the seriously ill – only £1 per child but with all the schools taking part this should really add up and what a great cause!


News: Our Sam got voted in for Pupil Council this year – he represents the children of Primary 5 for his school. We got a letter from the school which read,

“I am delighted to inform you that your child has been chosen to represent their class year at this session's Pupil Council. This is indeed a credit to them as they are not just popular members of their class, they have also been chosen by their peers as they have been judged to have many skills e.g. they are good communicators, are able to work as part of a team, have demonstrated that they have good ideas and are enthusiastic members of our school.”

Wow!! How proud are we!!


Oh, and look- it's raining again!!

Have a great weekend all!

Dear Sarah ~~ Of course you may use anything that I post. No need to ask.
I am glad you enjoyed it. Sorry your weather has been so miserable,but I find windy days are good for the washing but it is good to see some sunshine as well. Slow cookers are great aren't they? I am sorry your big son had such a bad fall and hope the ribs have healed by now. Congrats to Sam for his Pupil Council success I am sure your bathroom will look wonderful when it is finished.
Take care dear friend. Love and Hugs, Merle.

Way to gooooo Sam:-) You have every right to be proud of him, it's indeed super that he was voted to be part of the Pupil Council!! I also love his Willy Wonka outfit and such a wonderful idea for the school to raise money for the seriously ill.

My upstairs bathroom is still from the 1960's so it's in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Once you figure yours out, you can come here and show me how to go about it! lol I want a claw foot tub so badly but they're quite expensive. Must start saving my pennies:-)

We've been having gorgeous weather over here so far this Fall, sunny and warm days. The mornings are quite chilly and we've had heavy frost already but the days warm up beautifully. I'll try to send some of it your way:-) xoxo
