Best laid plans....

are not always worth doing as it is other things that I cannot change get in the way... LOL....

This morning I thought I would quickly nip to the gym as always feel better after doing an hour there, to find that they've change all the machines since I was last there (nearly 4 weeks ago), so only did half an hour on the cross trainer and that was after asking someone to show me how to start it, then did 15 minutes on the power plate... Ive booked an appointment with an instructor to log me in and show me the new machines on Thursday...

I came home and had a lovely hot shower, did a few chores then settled down to start the paperwork, did quite well, and had hoped that tomorrow I would make a dent in it, but was told on when picking Steven up from the mini bus there will be no school transport tomorrow. It seems Portsmouth City Council has taken to heart the prediction of the severe weather warning, so have decided to NOT do any school transport tomorrow... So unless I take Steven into school myself which I did do until 2 years ago, he will not be going into school tomorrow... At first thought I would see what the weather was like in the morning, but to be honest as it's so cold out anyway, I think I will keep him home, so the paperwork will just have to wait another couple of days, lol...

As you know I do the weeks menu on Sunday to what meal we're having, to have hubby phone to say he would be working late, so instead of French style sausage casserole, Steven and I would have salad and baked potatoes.... (I always have a quick back up meal in case it's needed, lol)...

Last year I bought a little magnet white board in the lakeland sales, it was originally for Sam for when she moved out, but seeing she's still living here and that as it has four sides, I thought I could make use of it. So I've got one side for the business, one for Sam's house, the other for Steven's transition and lastly one for this house.... slight problem, it seems I have so much to do, I also needed to write things on a separate piece of paper, of whats need doing everyday, so not maybe such a good idea as I thought, lol...

WOW, maybe the weathermen have actually got it right, as one minute it was raining, then sleet and now heavy snowflakes, and that all changed in a space of 10 minutes, it's looks pretty out there, but I will not settle till hubby is home safely... Sam's already home as she only works till 10.30 on Tuesday's...

I hope everyone else is safe and snug at home........
