Too warm

Today is dragging.... it's another glorious day and I should be out there enjoying it, but it so hot! There's no breeze and I'm still suffering from my previous sun burn. I've started to peel now too which looks unpleasant and shows off how stupid I was to go out for a day without any sun cream.

I have no energy for anything and I'm feeling ratty. I've done all the work that has been sent to me for the day already, I've read my fave blogs and scouted around for some more and I've collected the last of my avon money. Now I have nothing to do - well nothing that doesn't involve getting even hotter and rattier. I don't even have the energy to play any of my games.

I am concidering sacking everything in for the day and lounging in the back garden with my book and a cold drink. And sun cream! At least in my own back garden hardly anyone will see my scabbie peeling shoulder, and in admidst the general shite we have lying around the garden (old bits of table and shevling which were supposed to go to the tip when I still had a car big enough to shift them, but we never got round to it) my flacking skin will be the last thing the neighbours will bother raising an eyebrow too.

I'm into the last book in a serise of 5; Earths Children by Jean M Auel and it's brilliant. But I've got so attached to the characters that I am feeling loathed to finish this last book. It's a long time since I have been gripped by a book (well, serise of books) and I don't have anything of equal calibur to follow them *pout* I do have some V. C. Andrews books that Jacquie has bought me over the last couple of years, but I'm missing the first two in that serise so I don't feel inclinded to start reading them. The last ones I have are from the De Beers serise. I have got some horror backing up, a few Dean Koontz and the like but I'm not in the mood for horror right now. I want some thing a bit friendlier, maybe something sweet and silly like "The Undomestic Godess" that I read a couple of months back - not my normal stuff at all but Fay gave it to me when I told her I'd been baking etc.

*sigh*

I'm just waffling now for something to do. So I shall go and get myself some sun and some nice iced water, and read my book.

Try not to melt lass! We're in the middle of a 95+ degree hot snap here too. It isn't comfy at all, but it gives a good excuse to drink though.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club. Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue. As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too. When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum.
