It has been a very strange week, this week. Youngest got himself a part-time job to fit in with his studies etc and it was working between 3.00am and 7.00am filling the vans for UPS for that day’s deliveries!!! He has always, as has Eldest, been very good about getting up in the morning and they were never late for school as they were always up and bouncing about. However I thought that getting up at 2.00am everyday would be a strain so I was setting my alarm for 2.00am just to make sure he was up!!!!
He did get up but it was getting a little later as the week went on and by Thursday he and I were about on our knees!!!! Needless to say he has decided it is not the right job for him and has left!!! Both he and I then, of course, slept in this morning as we were both shattered!!! DH was also away on Wednesday night for work and I never sleep well when he is not home, even with snuggle bugs Treacle on the bed!!!
I popped out today to get some flowers for our friends tomorrow and their 50th. They are having a party in the Village Hall with a band and for supper it is fish and chips!! So much nicer on cold evenings than a buffet and what a great idea. I will get pictures!!! Also did the grocery shopping and got back in time for lunch with Youngest and then managed to catch up with my work. I am determined I am not going to get behind, it is just too much then to catch up on.
Youngest is coaching tomorrow morning between 7.00am and 9.00am (definitely better times!) and DH is going with him to help with the swimmers and then we are taking Youngest to the train station so he can go and visit Girlfriend at her Uni and then DH and I are going to the Ploughing Match in Southwell, not far from his childhood home. There are always exhibits from how they used to plough with the heavy horses as above and of course the modern version with tractors. It is great fun watching the tractors race across the fields ploughing but in a race. Again I will get pictures.
The weather is set fair for the weekend with warmer temperatures tomorrow and cooler on Sunday which will be ideal to get in the garden and start getting it ready for winter.
I have also had, in the last couple of weeks, some new Followers so Welcome along for the ride (!), thank you for following me and I hope you enjoy this journey we are on.
This is Treacle today, soaking up the Indian Summer rays!
