Another week over...

Well last week has been another busy one, but not because of Steven, (I know, shock and horror, lol)

Last Monday I first did my weeks shopping at Asda, then went shopping with Sam to Southampton, for our annual Christmas shopping trip... She was not 100%, had a migraine, I did suggest us going home, but she knew it was the only day she could do it, (for getting any more time off work)... So she sat down for the first few hours and I was going in and out the shops for her, but she perked up later and even managed a little bit of lunch before coming home.

Then in the evening Sam and I went with my sister to see the new Harry Potter film. It was fab, loved it, brilliant, I think it was one of the best, if not the best, it played on all my emotions, sad, happy and anxious... I would highly recommend it.

On Tuesday I nipped to the gym first thing, then went to Chichester as it was the only place that had a chair that Sam and I wanted to get Matt for Christmas, this time taking mum with me. Also managed to get a couple of things, but also didn't managed to get some things, so came home and ordered them off the Internet.

Wednesday morning was catching up with the book work that didn't get done on the Monday and Tuesday and in the afternoon I had the second part of the PECs course (OK something for Steven)...

Thursday was a visit to the dentist as when I was at Chichester I had to get some chocolate marzipan, so while in there I treated myself to some Thortons toffee, for one of my fillings to come out while eating it on the Tuesday.
Yikes this time he had to inject me as there was some decay where the filling had been (that's why it came out so easily). In fact the dentist actually said 'it was a blessing as would have been worse if the filling was left in'. That was the first time I've ever been praised by a dentist for eating toffee and loosing a filling, lol. Then it was a quick run through with the hoover before Steven came home for lunch. Then in the afternoon was boardgames and PECs homework with Steven.

Friday was the gym first thing, followed by the hairdressers (this time treating myself to foils, copper coloured) and then a little shopping and paying bills, before coming home and doing some paperwork before littlen and Clive got home for the weekend...

Saturday was a photo shoot that I was given as a present last Christmas but not had time to use, so did an informal family one with Clive, Steven Sam and Matt. Then it was PECs homework again, as Clive was home to help out). Then in the evening, I went to a candle party round my daughter's house and came away with a coconut reed refuser, (smelt like malibu, lol) and an Aroma Melts Warmer (for the left over yankee candle bits, quick tip... if you have any wax left in the glasses, place in the freezer for a few hours, then they just fall out, the glasses then can be cleaned and used and the left over wax pieces can be put in a Aroma Melts Warmer)

Sunday was the visit to Moors Valley Country Park to meet up with Clive's family again, this time Matt came too, which was nice and we got to meet hubbies cousins children too. We had a lovely time going for a few walks, having lunch there and going for a ride on the train, oh and also 2 stops into the barn for their 'yummy' hot chocolate, lol.

Which bring us back to today, Monday and the start of another weeks chores, but also catching up on all the things that didn't get done last week because I was out gallivanting, lol...
Oh well, life is too short to worry about the extra layer of dust (till the community nurse comes on Thursday, yikes)...

Good grief Maria - busy or what. I've done the full PECS course and it really is fabulous (did it eight years ago now!!) and so useful for so many communication impairments. How long has Steven used PECS?

Love my scented candles. Was supposed to have a party last week until OH wrecked bathroom in name of renewing grout!

Thanks for the offer of cards BTW. Christmas cards just nwo would be great but I think I'll try and keep up a supply of general/birthday cards after that.

Take care.

Hi Maria

I would've commented earlier, but I was so tired after reading your blog that I had to go and have a little nap!!!!

What a shame that Alex left Moors Valley only a couple of weeks before you visited (nothing personal!!!)
