Took our money for clothes up to Tescos today and its 20% off all clothing (not like jumpers with only one arm or that sort of thing either before you start… you know who you are!) So we ended up getting masses of clothes for the two big girls to share. They wear the same size so it really worked out well. 11 pairs of trousers (ones with elastic that might actually stay above Puds bum!) 4 long sleeved tops, 4 warm fleece tops, new socks and knickers and lovely pjs from H&Ms. We also bought a mass of new bedding and everyone is now tucked up between clean sheets and protected mattresses I’ve actually still got enough money left over to get Moo new shoes and a couple of new duvets.
Puds depressing me. Today she said “my nose is disgusting cos of my horrible gap isn’t it” – i could have wept. its been like this ever since the Rainbows incident – yesterday Moo laughed because she thought Pud said “I have a hole in my back” (back/gap) Pud really let rip and got very angry but Moo hadn’t done anything – she is just so sensitive now. Tonight i told her about how a friend she likes thinks she is great cos of how she handles her gap and showed her an e-card that handily arrived at a good moment. It made her day *snogs to the people who count – we will return the favour tomorrow*
Not a lot occurred today – i got put back on a waiting list (6 months now i am not lying in a hospital bed!!!!) for having my tonsils out by the most useless doctor that ever walked the earth. Apparently its not his job to advise me :~/ Thank all the gods for Puds fabulous Mr Hall is all i can say.
Tried to Xmas shop and discovered i am now mentally unable to shop in the real world and had to come home to my computer instead!
Had roast all together and am relieved to see that the younger two have seriously improved their table manners – shame its the eldest who has the worst ones! Scruff amused us heartily by playing a “how many times can i ‘accidentally’ drop my fork on the ground before mum and dad notice its a gag” – i swear she is worse than the others were….
Pud obsessed with buying a house and asks everyone if they own theirs. We have spent ALL day doing mortgages and the finer points of why daddy won’t buy again. She wants a house please – and not any old one – but a mock Tudor one!!!!!
Got a very cheap “Pop Up Dragon” yesterday which they have loved and all three have played together beautifully, except it reminded them of some past friends who had a similar game and we had tears. WAIL :~((
