Or freckle on the nose of life's complexion


Is Monday and I am in a surprisingly chipper mood. No idea why! Good nights sleep? Maybes!

Work is busy, lots of letter, emails, phone calls, and orders. 

Can't stop, more later.

just thought I'd check in.

I have just watched a documentary on "octomum". 

Why was this woman allowed to conceive 14 babies as a single mother using IVF?  She doesn't work, and is clearly dillusional. 

I cannot believe what I am seeing.  She calls the police because "papparazzi" are blocking her entry to the house.  Enters the house, and is greeted by at least 20 members of the press who she has "invited" to the homecoming.   She has has surgery to make her look like Angelina Jolie.  How did she afford the house?  How does she afford to buy them clothes? How does she afford to pay childminders?  OMG. She just sells the kids and her stupidity to raise funds. She is a manipulative bitch.

I'm the Rose of Sheer Perfection....

1. The phone rings. Who will it to be?
 My Mum, or a telesales man

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
Yes I do, or the Store would have my £1.00

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
Talker, but I'm trying to change that, to be more of the "quiet one in the corner"
4. Do you take compliments well?
I glow. I so glow. I do.

5. Do you play Sudoku?
Nope.  I can't figure it out at all. Word Searches, Letter Hunt, I can do, Sudoku? Nope.
6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive?
Sadly yes. My boys are scouts, and despite my denial, I have picked up a wee bit, and of course they submit me to Bear Grylls every week, so now I even know how to rip the head off lizards, and sook their insides out!

7. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?

UK don't do camps.  School trips were kinda rubbish - our Primary didn't even go away overnight.  We just did days.

8. What was your favorite game as a kid?
Playing in the field at the back of the house.  The imagination runs wild.  We had manor houses, ranches, horses, bears, you could imagine anything.
9. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he was married, would you?
I'd flirt, but I'd never do the dirty on my husband, I love him TOOO much.
10. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?

I have no religious beliefs, apart of course from the Mother Ship.... If they had beliefs quietly, then I could cope, however if they attended church, and preached around me, I'd not cope. So NOPE.

11. Do you like to pursue or be pursued? 
Pursue. I am a stalker.

12. Use three words to describe yourself?
Crazy, Mad, Mental, (But not as crazy as Octomum)

13. Do any songs make you cry?
Dance with my Father Again. Every time. Once I even had to stop the car.
14. Are you continuing your education?
I have just finished an Open University Starter course. I did Banking Exams, A Hons Degree, and Post Graduate Degree, Some Accounting Degrees.

15. Do you know how to shoot a gun?
16. Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?
Yeah. but not porno ones! Just regular. In fact, I don't even think I've done a kissy photo.

17. How often do you read books? 
I used to read about 2- 3 books a week.   Don't read as many now.  But I listen to books on my way to work.

18. Do you think more about the past, present or future?
I think about it all, all of the time. Is amazing how much you can think when you meditate.

19. What is your favorite children’s book?
The Christmas Donkey? Harry Potter, Any Alfie and Annie-Rose.
20.What color are your eyes?
Green Blue ,Grey, they are very changable.

Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter ...................

Busy Busy Weekend.  

Which resulted in a stinky stinky migraine on Monday. Wow Was I ill.  I'm heading to bed shortly I'm still feeling the effects of it. Not pleasant.

Boy played Volley on Saturday 11 - 1 and Girl Played 1 - 3.  It is exhausting watching kids be so energetic.  One day I will get up and be equally energetic.  If I wake early tomorrow, maybe tomorrow will be the day!

Got a nice Email from Ian the other day. He thought I was a relative, but sadly no.  Happily though, I do know his cousin and have access to her email address, and so communications should be going between them shortly.

For those of you reading here, and am not sure who I am, I'm Sonny Henderson's Daughter.... if you seen me in the street you would recognise me, also being Sonny's Daughter, am also the Daughter of Babs Wells - You'll know her, always wandering about the town, looking for trouble!

hey ho.  End of Tuesday, which I keep thinking is Monday, which makes it nice for it to be Wednesday tomorrow.

Sunday Stealing

1. When you go to AnyMart, what one thing do you get every single time, besides a funky-wheeled squeaking cart full of frustration?
I like to get toilet roll. And it has to be Aloe Vera Toilet Roll. I can't go back to plain rough padded toilet roll.

2. What is something that people are currently “into” that you just don’t get or appreciate?
People are into Jay-z, and I just don't get it. I've listened to him speak and he is a perfectly lovely chap, but I'm not into this shouty "music".

3. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel “ho-hum” about?
Tap Dancing.  I love tap dancing, I went to classes, but I stopped because I was running about too much between kids / classes / kids classes / work. It  had to stop, but it doesn't stop me bouncing about whenever.

4. Favorite song to sing in the shower or car?
Don't Let it Rain on My Parade.......

5. A really great salad must have this ingredient:
Crispy Bacon Bits

6. What advice in a nutshell would you give to new bloggers?
Do your own thing, don't try to influence, or win friends, do what you came here to do, and it if was write a diary, and amuse yourself, do that. 

7. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you?
I can't remember, Amanda? maybe?  Then they decided to please Gran, and name me after her! Lovely!

8. What in your life are you waiting for?
Doh! You need to ask..... The Lottery.  I got my handsome prince, and my gorgeous children, and my ideal home,  I just need money to burn now. 

9. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from?
is a beautiful ring, from a charity raffle

10. Today–what song represents you?
Don't let it rain.... On My Parade....

11. What is one thing that blogging has taught you about yourself?
You can't blog about what really pisses you off when the people that piss you off read your blog. ha ha ha ha

12. How are you going to (or how did you) choose the clothes you’re wearing today?
What do they say about you in general or specifically how you’re feeling today?
I went for the top because my work mate said the colour made her happy! I'm all for everyone being happy! My trousers, because they are "my work trousers"  Easy Peasy.

Trees of Green, Red Roses too. I see them bloom

Yesterday I was very conscious of Autumn.  The trees in places where turning.  I love Autumn.  It smells right.  It reminds me of pushing babies in prams, snug in their blankets, while my nose was slightly chilled, but I was warm with the joy of being alive - and being a mum. 
My children are everything to me, I am constantly astounded by their achievements.  

Tooli, is brilliant beyond my comprehension, she knows there is a limit to what I can help her with maths, and sciences.  I am completely baffled at the things she knows, and I know nothing off.  She is turning into a complete stunner, and her dad is scared to let her out the house but at the same time, she is the most together girl I have ever met - She won't make any deliberate mistakes! 

Boy - His sporting achievements are way beyond anything I could ever have achieved. He plays volleyball with such a passion, that he could convince anyone that they could play.

I thought yesterday that realistically, he should be a PE teacher, he would inspire kids beyond what they ever dreamed they could inspire.  He turned 18 last week, and for the first time, first time ever I promise, went into a shop to buy booze, and was mortally wounded that they didn't ID him.  He has drunk, underaged, in Pubs before he turned 18 but never to the extent that I have had to scrape him up off the floor, or get a mad call in the middle of the night looking for rescue.  He is applying for jobs right left and centre, while waiting for the process of his application for US takes place. he is planning his days out so that he doesn't get demented sitting around.  He is running every day - at least 5 miles, and working out to get his body to maximum fitness. He does everything i list for him to do, with the minimum of groaning, and all in all, is turning into a gorgeous specimen of humanity. 
My Kids are brilliant!

Upside Down You're Turning Me

I have been to hospital today.

My mouth exploded.  I have a vein on my lip and it pours blood when it feels like it. This weekend, it has bled and bled and bled.

So it started again today, and I headed to A&E thinking, I could get it cauterised, but they didn't. They poked and prodded, and made it bleed more.

Then they sent me to Crosshouse where it would be cauterised. But they didn't either. They stuck a flipping needle in my lip which made it swell up to twice it's size. I was totally traumatised and spent the afternoon sleeping it off.

Tonight I managed to drag myself out of bed, and get to a meeting at the school. busy busy busy.

Oh You've Got Blue Eyes, Oh You've Got Grey Eyes, Oh you've got Green Eyes

Another weekend, another non-stop buzz of activity!

 Friday night.... Boy had friends round... He was 18 on the Monday before, we celebrated as a family, but this was his first opportunity to get together with his mates.

He was very annoyed on Thursday night when he went to buy booze for the first time, at a shop (yes, my children do respect law), he wasn't aged!  He took his drivers license out anyway to show the shop keeper just to prove! tee hee.   A few of his mates came round - but it was a low key affair, most of them are heading off this weekend, or this week during the week to university... 

Left the boy a bit down on Saturday when he had a interview... fingers crossed we will hear positively this week.   He took off after interview and sleep on couch with his girl to her house....

I shouted abuse at the side of the pitch at hockey, volunteered, well asked if I could become Co-ordinator for the Senior Hockey, which I am delighted to do. came home, undercoated the hall, went out for more paint and the shopping, came home made tea, painted some more, watch tv and then went to bed. Where was husband in all this I hear you ask?  camping at the Scout hall! Yeah, I think he prefers them to me too!

Tooli went out with her mates on Saturday night, after sleeping all afternoon on Saturday afternoon, and fell out with them because she wouldn't have a sleep-over! Bloody nonsense - you can barely get in the front door for the furniture movement  and paint all over the place.  One of her mates is n't actually allowed any sleepovers until their extension is finished.. which is outside the house - hence probably not as much mess as in here, but obviously that doesn't matter!  Girls, They are AWFUL.

Today, i woke with a sore head and a sore back. Painkillers have killed the head, but not the back.  I interrupted Boy's training, he was bouncing around all over the house, to do some more painting for me, which is did.  I've straightened the living room, and now I need to start making prep for tea.

I've taken 10 minutes out to print out invites for Mum's birthday party.... I've got a minimum of 50 to make........ argh, why did I say yes!

Quite frankly Am rubbish. 
Have been very very busy,. but that shouldn't excuse me filling in my details. 
We lost our poor wee Blue bun, on 23rd August. I never mentioned it. So no more wee Buns.  That makes me sad.   As does the hutch all broken up in the back garden. 
It was sadder to watch the hutch all empty.
