A biggie - all care seems to be sorted for all the children whilst Little Fish has her hip op. She'll be able to drive her power chair and our new bus will be here so there will be enough room for us all to get out and about. Mog and the Wahooligan will both be having good times in different places leaving me free to concentrate on Little Fish. So now we just need to pray the operation goes ahead as planned and no one decides to cancel at the last minute. Empty beds please!
Smaller perhaps but big to me still. My sitter caught sight of this as she
And when I got home, she asked me if I'd mind leaving her all my ironing to do. Apparently she loves ironing and it would make her very happy. Since I hate ironing, it would make me very happy too. All round happiness always good.
I gave up on ever getting to Tesco this month; I haven't managed to do a proper shop since March and Budgens doesn't cut it after a while. So yesterday I finally organised my way through an online shop, and today it arrived. And, possibly for the first time ever in the history of online deliveries, the deliverer arrived with a big beaming grin and a "No substitions today, Missus". Hurrah. And now, thanks to Tesco and to a friend, I have 4 jars, 2 cartons, 3 packets and 1 tin of coffee. I think that should see me through the next couple of weeks quite nicely.
I was running late, so late I had no time to stop for petrol. And I managed to drive to Aylesbury and halfway back on an empty tank.
It's not been a totally wonderful day; I've been running late through most of it. Mog's school bus hit my neighbour's car this morning and then went AWOL with Mog for 40 minutes this afternoon. More phone calls, more complications, more deadlines missed. But, three children sleeping quietly, three outfits planned with Trina, no one vomiting and everyone's bowels open but not excessively so. On balance, a day more good than not I think.
