Shopping. Sock shortages led to me actually ironing socks dry for L! We went to town and Pearlie spent Christmas money on a clockwork alarm clock. Leo bought himself another Sarah Jane Adventures toy. Dani had a good time in C and H Fabrics with her vouchers and got lovely wool for a waistcoat for L.
Socialising. The elder of my brothers had his birthday yesterday so we all went round for tea and nibbles. The kids and I also went out with cousin B and his mum to see Bee Movie, on Friday. The kids liked it but I thought it was pretty awful. I didn’t take enough water and had to buy a bottle for £2.50 when I was struck down with a fierce coughing fit during the film.
Coughing. Pearlie, Leo and I are still at the tail end of this illness. I seem to cough very little all day and then, as soon as I try to sleep, be unable to stop. This is tough on Dani who is back at work now. Kids are a bit spluttery still but basically ok.
Eating. I’m really feeling the need for more exercise!
Not writing our annual report. We send one to the Local Authority every year but I haven’t felt very inspired yet. I will do it in the next few days. Now I’ve put that on the blog then I have to!
We’re off to see The Golden Compass once D’s finished at work. Better get dressed…
