Get up and go...

...has got up and gone...

well it's been one of those weeks, just haven't the energy for anything, and the worse thing was Steven had 2 evenings out, sports club on Monday and bowling on Tues, where with 'normal' children, you might be a taxi service, in my case you're not only the taxi service but also the entertainer too, so running around trying to get him to play table tennis, volley ball, badminton, lets just say, the mood he was in, even football was too much hard work for him...

...and as for bowling, well not sure why I even bothered, he's mind was elsewhere looking anywhere than where he was suppose to be, like which ball to pick up and to carry it to the lane and place it on the floor and push it down the ally, well I have never waited so so for the ball to reach the skittles in fact the machine started clearing away before the ball even reach them lol.

Went shopping Monday, out to our big Asda (12 mile round trip) to realized as I got to get out the car, no hand bag, which meant no way of paying for the shopping. Then is was what do I do, as coming out of Portsmouth I commented to myself how busy it was getting into Pompey and hoped it had sorted itself out by the time I had finished shopping...

so went to customer services and asked if I did my shop, could I leave the trolley load with them and then go home and get my bag, in the hoping the traffic would have calmed down my then...well the shop is usually quiet on a Monday morning and this Monday was no exception, so was back in the car by 9.15, leaving the trolley... traffic was better did have to do a slight de-toured but got home, got my bag and drove back to pay and collect my shopping, (another 12 mile round trip) and was home all sorted by 10.15, half an hour later than normal...so not a good start to week...

While I was at Asda bought a sensory light bulb (£12), when opened found an ordinary Asda light bulb in there, someone had switched them, so had to phone up, was on hold for customers services for 3 mins, but they said fine, bring it back (oh the joys of another 12 mile round trip, lol) I said could it be next Monday, when I do my weeks shop said, 'yes', then after putting the phone down to them realized it's half term, I don't shop in school holidays, as not fair on Steven, and cannot stand other peoples children running riot, lol

Another upset was that I put an order in for crafts u love as free P&P till the Monday, as saw some stickers that would be good for Stevens thank you cards, only to be emailed to say out of stock, lol so back to the drawing board...

Then the other night I saw that Brenda Pinnick had moved her blog so I put in her new addy in my favorites, then went to delete the old addy to find I had deleted all the blogs that I visit, and of course at the weekend I had a tidy up of my favorite blogs, so did not have any of the addresses anywhere...

... my mind went blank to what are the ones I used to looked at, then did have a brainwave to check out the scrapbook apprentice website as I knew CC was still there, clinked on her linked then went through her favorites, then when I found one saved it, then went through their favorites, and so on...

...so hopefully got them all back, well eventually made it to the end of the week, and am in some ways pleased it's half term, as no clock watching and rushing out the house every morning, and I enjoy spending time with Steven, so far have book a bowling lane for Monday to look forward too...

...the down side to half term is, no housework, shopping, gym or crafting, as too tired being out and about everyday entertaining Steven...
