This morning I was woken at 8.30 by a foreign voice talking outside my bedroom window, I thought I must dreaming. I wondered who it was, I wondered what he was saying, eventually I was able to get up and look. The never ending house being built next door now has a army of Polish builders. Despite the fact that they spent most of the day talking on their phones I am being positive and hope that they will eventually do some building. I asked them politely not to park in my driveway, or wander into my garden to use their phones. They smiled a lot and nodded. I think I need to learn Polish !

She Used To Be A Baby

And I used to sing to her

Oh, I have a little daughter, and my daughter's name is Kate.
And she's every bit mischievous as a kitten on a skate.
With a bandage on her forehead and the bruises on her knees,
You would swear she'd fought with buccaneers on all the seven seas.
For its up the stairs and down the stairs and in the room and out.
Like a miniature tornado, she can blow the house about.
Take an angel with the devil in the twinkling of her eye,
And that's my Katy, little lady, and I love her.

Where have all the years gone?

To My Knitting Advisor

Stop laughing, I know I need to go on a course

Meet The Monkey

Finally, I have arrived. Now I know I am "different", one look in the mirror showed me that, monkey makers across the universe will probably not have come across the likes of me, but I know I will be loved when I go to my new home later today. The people who live here are really happy ,I know this because every time they see me there is great laughter.
I am grateful to my creator, she knitted as if her life depended on it. Last night, after my completion, we shared a little pick me up. I also learned some new words like "bugger" and "bollox"

It's been fun being here, I was allowed to practise my climbing skills

I also made a couple of friends

I got to use the computer to email Mr H, he lives down south with his friend Twisty. Sorry Twisty but after Mr H sees my picture, I think you should be worried. I hear internet dating is all the rage.

Now I am packed and ready to go, I'll let you know what my name is when my new owner Eleni tells me.

Snow, Sinus's and Insomnia

My first thought on seeing the snow this morning was "how lovely". My second thought was "Oh No they will cancel her test again" and they did. My daughter should have been sitting her driving test last week, it was cancelled due to the examiner becoming unavailable and again today, cancelled due to bad weather. Arghhhh, not sure how much more of this I can take, I am more nervous than she is.
Been suffering with a sinus infection and feel like my head is going to explode,having this as well as my ME symptoms is bollox!!!. The pharmacist said take Sudafed,so I did, its' not helping and I feel tuned to the moon, all I want is sleep, surely that's not a lot to ask for !
