Been in a daze and super busy

Hello all,how are you all doing?
Well as my title says i have been in a daze..well up until last Thursday and the whoosh my week went so fast.
As you all know i had an emergency extraction at the Dentist..once i had feeling back in my face it bloody hurt to talk let alone anything else..i was in so much pain and thinking i would have to go back as something surely was wrong it didn't hurt like this before..i was taking paracetomol to ease the pain..nope not working at all..i literally wanted to cry..then i discovered that i had actually been taking decongestants..both from a well known supermarket and more or less in the same style packet..it was only when i went to take another one that i discovered my mistake..i felt so stupid.
Thankfully i managed to sort that out and get it under control and now its all good..o i did feel like a bloody dip honestly.I lived on Cuppa soups and porridge for a bit and lost weight lol..its all back on now as i love my food too much to miss out.
But life went on and we got busy with it..we took off the old shed roof and put on a new one..the girls were helping by passing screws to their dad and i kept the drinks coming as it was warm..i started to paint our front porch trellis..had to stop as my mouth was throbbing but its almost done now..

Shed roof before
 Unfortunately we had to cut some Apple branches off but rest assured the apples went to good use.


Shed roof after

Now its waterproof we have been fixing up the outside and it will get a coat of paint and some new guttering we have been given.
The apples that had to be took early were a little sour so they were cooked and sugared and made into 3 huge crumbles and also pie filling and some apple sauce.
I have been sorting veg from the allotments and freezing it..my freezer is nicely packed ready to see us through the Winter.
We have splashed a bit more cash and bought some blackout thermal blinds..one for our bedroom and one for the living room..hoping it will make a huge difference to us ..i have finally found a seller who actually does these blinds wide enough to fit our dining room window..its very wide and not that deep. I am so excited to finally have one for this window..the sun blinds you for most of the afternoon what ever the season and also when the wind blows on it you can see the voile moving,they are not the best quality double glazed windows.So fingers crossed it will keep us shaded from the sun and warmer in the bad weather. Once it arrives i will take a picture.
The girls have been busy getting back into the school routine..admittedly last week was all over the place as i really didn't feel up to it..but no excuses this week.
I found some good French Lessons for them on Youtube..
They are wearing earplugs and i can hear them repeat the lessons..its quite nice to hear them.
We are concentrating on Autumn crafts and also learning all about the Harvest Festival and reading Autumn themed books i ordered from the library..i did buy them the Brambley Hedge ,Autumn and Winter books as a treat ..they have already gone through them and totally want the rest of the set..they will have to wait a little while i think.
We have put up our Autumn decorations..and have more to finish..
So its been busy here and i feel guilty i didn't post ..i see a lot of you have been busy too.
I have to admit i am enjoying the cooler days and looking forward to the changing colours of the trees.
How about all of you?

What a scorcher..

Phew it was a hot one today..but we shouldn't moan really..the last few days of Summer are going to be gorgeous ,so lets just enjoy them.
I had put the pool away for the year but out it came again this morning to be filled up ..the girls had a great afternoon splashing about and just laying on towels warming up again.
We are supposed to be starting the new shed roof this week..we have ordered it and paid for it and its being delivered tomorrow..but the weather is a bit warm for us to be ripping down the old one and putting up the new one..we are just going to enjoy the warmth and relax before the Autumn sets in properly.It will be done when it has cooled a little.
I hope that you all enjoy the days .

O not again..back to the dentist..

Hello all,i hope that your ok today?
Well i have had a rough day or 2..i got toothache ..i was so hoping that it would just go but obviously it doesn't happen like that. Even though i wish it would.I had a rough night and woke up to that awful throb,swollen face and felt like i had been beaten up.
I rang my dentists and they got me in..i arrived and 10 minutes later my tooth was removed..never felt a thing,i was numbed up for Britain..now i have another huge hole in my mouth that is very flipping sore and i have only just got the feeling back in my mouth,5 and a half  hours later but thankfully no more toothache.
No doubt it will be sore for a while but i am relieved its gone.Painkillers at the ready and i am going to put my feet up tonight and have an early night.
Hubby and girls have looked after me today..plenty of cuddles and kisses and hubs has kept me supplied with drinks.
All i can say is thank the lord we are registered with a dentist..and they are wonderful in trying to do everything they can to help.
Am off to sit down and feel a little sorry for myself.

Its a girl..well will be when she arrives..

Hello all,how are you today?
My lovely daughter Fionna is expecting a little girl..i know not everyone wants to know but they did and thats their choice.
Fionna has had to have a few scans to check as the baby wouldn't co-operate and they couldn't get a clear scan of the heart..but they have now and all is fine.
So little one is good and so is mum..she is swelling well as they say and the baby is quite a biggie .
A little pic of her ..

Back to school..

 The grand children already to go..
Back to school..don't they all look so happy and smart..i hope they had a great day.We also went back to school today and spent the day just kinda revisiting stuff we did and just a relaxing day.Iris actually stunned me with her reading this afternoon,very proud of her..she got words she has struggled with and her capacity for vocabulary has expanded a lot..blimey i was stunned into silence for once.This reading for 5 minutes twice a day is paying off.
I hope you all had a great day as well.

This will keep us warm..

Hello all,how are you today?
As you know i went shopping with my mum last week. We went to an Antique place for a good look around and whilst we were there i saw a Bargain Bin..it had lots of vintage fabric and curtains in it.Right at the bottom was a bedspread..by golly it reeked and had a smallish brown stain on the back. Trouble was there was no prices on any of it or the bin itself. There was no one around to ask ,so i let it go.It actually bugged me for the rest of the day and i kept thinking about it.
The next day i asked my mum to pop back and see if she could find a price for me..i was prepared to pay £5 or maybe £6..my mum went and found the fella and he wanted £8..my mum pointed out it smelt and needed a darn good wash and was stained..he asked what she thought she should pay..quick as a flash mum said £6..and bingo deal was done.
What do you think..i think its a real bargain..and its been washed and dried and the stain came out..it looks perfect.
