Quick update.....

my SIL is out of hospital and recovering at home, thank God. Her husband who has to be one of the biggest male chauvinist pigs that I know is now a dab-hand with a vacuum cleaner and has started cooking too! About time too! Called the "very nice man" from the AA out on Saturday to have a look at Neil's car only to be told it was definitely terminal and needed a new engine. Seeing as we had a quote for £2000 from a garage for a new one we thought it'd be cheaper in the long run to scrap it and buy a new car. After nearly an entire weekend spent trawling around used car showrooms and getting kids and car seats in and out of cars we found exactly what we were looking for this morning and put the deposit down this afternoon. We're due to be picking it up on Wednesday afternoon - a Citroen Xsara Picasso 2.0l HDI SX in blue. It had it's price dropped by £1000 this week, was the exact model that we were looking for and had quite a low mileage - Neil's terminal car has done 126,000 miles! Here's our new one:

Jess has been sleeping really badly still - last night she woke up the grand total of 6 times! Aaarrrggghhhh!!!

Boys are back to school on Wednesday - I'll miss them during the day but it'll be lovely to get back in to my routine and have the days free again! Will also be time to tidy up the house completely - not worth it when they're on holiday for 6 weeks as I'm just fighting a losing battle!

Have made a couple of cards today but the light is totally wrong to photograph them at the moment so I'll post them tomorrow - until then - goodnight!
