Constant Catch Up

That's how I feel with this blog constantly trying to catch up.  A few things really, I am not sure I want to blog anymore, just something someone said, 'a comment for a comment' WTF it just put me right off. I read peoples blog when I have the time and because I am interested in them - period.

So what is happening with me?  Last week I attended my 'speed awareness' course in order to avoid 3 points on my license, which would increase my insurance premium and eventually with enough points you lose your license.  I started the course with the same attitude as most of the people in the room - bad!  I came away enlighten and once again proud to be a Brit.  I was fined for driving at 36 miles in a 30 zone.  I spent nearly 4 hours finding out what happens to a person that is hit by a car at 30, 35, 40 miles, very interesting and great to know that somebody gives a toss about people on the roads.

I have had 2 big weddings take place at work and both left me absolutely exhausted.  The first one I spent 17 hours 'at the office' and the next one was a bit less but had double the amount of people here.  I am not so sure I can take the pace, my ankles, knees, back if fact just about everything ached.  That aside both went very well.

My knee has started to play up again and I am not allowed to go to gym for a week - damn and I was starting to enjoy it :) 

My teens are still driving me mad and I can honestly say that unless you are buying them stuff they are hideous! Cupboard love - it keeps them happy.

Talking of teens Scott has done really well in his exams and will be going off to university September 2012 although the choice is so vast he now can't decide on any, the picture is of just some of the brochures that just pour in every morning. 



  1. I have a multitude of reasons to be proud to be British (just as soon as I officially become British - ha ha). Love that Scott has done so well - having the choices of where to go is awesome though. I love uni brochures, I'm eyeballing the open Uni at the moment they have a degree in Design and Innovation, which I'd love to do - have to make use of those credits I notched up years ago ;)

  2. I'm impressed you make the time to post at all with so much going on. Well done to your son on having so many options - though I know such choices aren't easy. I'm still backtracking on the one I made at 18! Shame about the gym but do as you were told and hopefully you'll be back there next week :) No comment on the teens - I've a couple of years to coast yet (not!).

  3. Fantastic that Scott has so many amazing options to choose from - he deserves it, clearly he has worked hard.

    Sorry to hear about the gym - cant you just swim?

    Keep blogging, stuff the commenting thing, just keep doing it cos its the only way the rest of us can keep a handle on your life.

  4. So glad to be able to get into your blog again...my computer flatly refused saying that I would get a virus if I do...but that seem to be sorted now.

    Please don't stop blogging...I will miss you so and I love reading about your life in England. So very glad that Scott did so well and is off to varsity next year.

    I suck at loving teenagers for the very reason you mention. It just doesn't want to come naturally. I hope my grandchildren don't grow up and turn into monsters when they hit their teens.Hope you had a beautiful birthday yesterday;-)

    Have a lovely weekend.

  5. Rushing around but just want to say - lovely to 'hear' from you again! Hope knees get better soon and the teens ... well..... they also become human again somewhere down the line.... I think....
