I am feeling bad as I have not blogged as often as I should. Now, don't go saying, oh you're holding down a full time job and running and family etc, etc, it was tardy - accept it.

Life has been full and busy and I haven't had time, so I apologise, on bended knee here and now.

Eldest son finished his GCSE's and is now an official teenage lay about - although I have taught him how to use the hoover and the washing machine, which is progress indeed.

Youngest son has gone on the gifted and talented register for Art and History and is a smart arse indeed.

Husband is back, early I know, complete with Louis Vuitton present and perfume.

All in all I am happy and content.

Teachers finish in four days so peace and quiet at work for six weeks.

Had end of year staff do on Friday and I drank rather too much Gin - was ill until 4.00pm on Saturday afternoon - not good!

Life is full and busy - will try not to be so tardy in future!

I am sad. He has gone again, and this time for three months.

Not that I'll have a moment to myself. Full time job, two sons, three cats and a house to run. Admittedly, when he's not here the house is tidier and I get things done which I can't when he is here. He moans at me and says unhelpful things like, 'sod the house work, there's some sun let's sit on our little patio sun trap and have a G&T, the hoursework will only need doing tomorrow', and who am I to argue.

He emailed me earlier, and I quote:


I'm on the plane and missing you already (surrounded by honeymooners and loving elderly couples!).
Wish you were here,traveling is not the same without you.

I wish I could earn enough to let you travel 1st class.... Maybe in time (when we are old and grey!)

love you more than life itself

How could you not love him. He is my life.
