Another quick update

I am So missing my PC..It doesn't help that it is half term so don't even have my work pc. My poor BIL is working so hard to try and backup my data to then see if he can fix it. I am thinking that i need a new one :(
I have looked at some beautiful ones but they seem to be all beauty and no substance. I have seen a nice one but can't afford it ATM so need to save up.
Meg wants her laptop back so i have to finish now.

Catch up again.

First I am sorry these are rubbish photos( must try harder!!) This is NO5. What you "love to hate" about them. This is Derek's X-box..not only does it eat away hours at a time of his life, his language is foul while he is playing AND you can see how he leaves it !! Most weekend mornings i wake to find leads trailing over the living room floor.

NO. 4 - Is also about Derek. ( sorry another rubbish photo taken quickly before work). Derek has at least 100 Rugby shirts..they are everywhere!! He even has a couple that are still in packaging, as they are "limited editions!!" He is truly a fruit bat about these and is ALWAYS on the look out for a new one. In fact he has one on pre order coming later this month and at an average of £50-60 or £20-30 (in the sales) , it's NOT a cheap hobby!

Had a rubbish day yesterday as I had planned a quiet day crafting and pottering about after a manic week at work. No...................................Megan managed to snap her spare specs on Friday night :( She broke the others a couple of weeks ago, sitting on them. I phoned the local opticians for a new frame. They wouldn't as she was overdue with eye sight test and they were too busy to fit her in and wouldn't even give her the same frames and book an appointment to suit them. In the meantime, Megan ( still a child as she is under 16) can't see!! So, we had to go to Norwich where they could fit her in, do the sight test and get a pair made up straight away. Megan was in a foul mood the whole day. ONLY wanted the exact frames, asked about contacts , so we had to listen to the complete sales talk, then changed her mind :) In the end ( and only £80 worse off) we had two pairs of specs ( one still need picking up later in week- i will NOT be going!!)
I had thought we would make the most of the day by looking around the grumpy drawers didn't want to. Derek managed to have some fun and had his feet nibbled by fish (wish he had photographed it!) and get some new converse boots.
After getting shopping in Tesco on the way home i was ready to shoot myself !!
Here's to a peaceful ,productive Sunday :)

Day Two

Today the photo challenge was to take a picture of "How they Look" LOL!! Megan in the morning before school. As far as she is concerned, this is the most important bit of her "uniform".

She often keeps her poor taxi driver waiting !!.

I have persuaded her to get dressed first and leave this bit till last!
Back tomorrow.
