Sounds like a lovely relaxed family day mC. Glad you enjoyed it. :D

Yes, sounds like it was worth the effort of getting there. :)

Aw Ghost, I've done that so often. :( When I was a postman I accidentally got up an hour early and was standing waiting for the first bus at four o'clock instead of five. I now have a really annoying habit of waking up about ten minutes before the alarm goes off. I also wake up several times during the night. Actually, I can't remember the last time I had a decent, refreshing sleep. It's no wonder I feel like crepe most of the time.

My sympathies Ghost. Sorry you're not getting good sleep Tony. I get bouts of insomnia, it seems to come in cycles. I can go a month with pretty good sleep then it'll start again, weeks of restlessness & constantly awake at night. It drives me to distraction. I dunno, years of shift work, my poor hypothalamus doesn't know what's going on.

I do this all the time. The amount of BBC World Service (broadcast on radio 4 between 1am and 5:20am) I have heard in the last few months is ridiculous :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

mC, so glad you had a wonderful day out with family.

Ghost, that's the worst!

I'm feeling guilty. Ava's going to horse camp this week. And, because she has a last minute no-show, her teacher offered to take Vivian too for a very large discount. Vivian sometimes takes a few lessons in the summer and she participates in the schooling shows. Well, after discussing it with hubby, we decided not to take her up on it. One of the biggest reasons is how much she bickers with her sister, but there were a few other cons too like; she tends to change her mind about wanting to attend activities after we've already paid for them, riding isn't really her passion, and it would be hard for her to understand if she's able to go this year, but not in the future. Even though I'm sure we made the right choice, I still feel guilty. :roll: She doesn't know, and if she ever finds out she will never forgive me. Lucked out a little bit though, the neighbors are out of town so we're Blue sitting. That will give her something really fun to do while Ava's at camp.

I'm sure she'll have the time of her life having you all to herself while big sis is away. ;)

We're definitely going to plan some special things to do together. :D

You made the right decision, and I think she'll really love having you all to herself :D

Hope you all both have fun with Blue Catch-up :)
I remember going on quite a few activities I've been to where I thought it might be nice at the time, but then few days in, realising it wasn't my cup of tea and I'd have been better of saving the money and staying at home. Especially when everyone's more enthusiastic than you.

ImageI don't really know how I feel. I've been away for quite a while - although it seems longer - looking after my mother.
She fell over and broke her wrist in two places - although I'd have thought that her bunions would have worked like stabilisers and kept her upright! ;) However, she had the plaster cast off a few weeks ago, so I've been watching over her while my eldest sister (who lives next door to her) went on holiday to Scotland.
It's been tough going, and I didn't feel like talking to anyone or visiting this forum. I did look in from time-to-time, to try to keep up to date with people's birthdays, but I didn't feel like hanging around or really getting involved with any posts.

Kids can't choose their mother's, but I did what was right, not what I wanted.

It may take me a few days to get back into my stride, as the shadow of the last few weeks is still with me, but I returned home yesterday, and I'm beginning to feel like my old(ish) self! Image
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

I have missed you Batty and noticed you were here for birthdays. Sorry to hear about your mum and I hope that she's well on the road to recovery. Good to have you back though! :D
