Well guess who caught the dreaded bug ... me .... although I don't think it was off Ben. There are just so many things going round at the moment we've hand countless people off work with sore throats, colds, flu, sickness bugs. Let's hope we get a real cold spell to kill off some of these germs.

This last year just seems to have flown by or is it just that the years seem to go quicker now that I'm getting older. Some ex pupils came into school just before we broke up for the Christmas hols and boy did I feel old when they told me their ages. It just didn't seem 2 minutes since they left and their they were saying they were 24, one of them even 34 - where did the time go.

This might be the last blog of theyear so I just thought I'd take the time to say hope you all have a bless Christmas and New Year.

Merry Christmas

Sleepy Shepherd

I was looking forward to having this afternoon off school to go and see Ben in his very first school play 'The Sleepy Shepherd'. I got a phone call off Sam to say it was not to be - poor Ben had a tummy bug and had been up all night with sickness - most definitely Sleepy Shepherd, poor soul. Thankfully Tom seemed to be OK. Maybe next year.
The weekend is here and I will trundle off to my little craft unit for a weekend of relaxation. I do enjoy being there and I have some girls coming in to make a pendant so that will be nice. We break up from school next week and that will be nicer still.

Ben's 5th Birthday

I went over to see Ben on Wednesday as it was his 5th birthday. He's had his snow play party and had opened all of his presents on the morning before school but even though he'd had a lot he was still excited to open the ones I'd got for him. He's not really into Thomas the Tank Engine anymore which is a shame really, they grow up so fast. Someone had bought him a Thomas book and he said that his brother could have it which was really sweet of him.
We all went out for pizza and ofcourse the highlight of the night for a 5 year old was the ice-cream and the girl dimming the lights and bringing his cake out - everyone sang 'Happy Birthday' to him. Tom was enjoying it just as much but being nearly 2 he was more intent on trying to get out of his high chair which he almost managed but Marc strapped him in, much to Tom's disgust. It was becoming quite frosty as we headed for home but both boys were very tired as it had been a long day and even I was tired.

Found out today what the sex of my next grandchild is going to be - are these scans 100% well we'll just have to wait and see.

Busy weekend.

What a hectic weekend. I had a very busy day at the unit on Sunday, probably one of my busiest and then I went over to Marc and Sam's. It was Ben's birthday party - he's 5 on Wednesday but he had his snow play party on Sunday afternoon and I went over in the evening. I think both he and Tom were very tired as they were getting a bit niggly so I didn't stay too long - I was shattered too. I'm going over on Wednesday with his presents.

And baby makes three!!

Or will it be a girl. I can't quite believe the one thing I haven't mentioned is the wonderful news that I'm going to be a grandmother again. The baby is due around May time and Marc and Sam want to find out whether it's a girl or boy this time. It would be nice to have a girl after 2 boys but as long as both mum and baby are fine I wont mind either way. Maybe the title should have said and baby makes 4 as there'll be 4 new additions to the family soon. My niece Debbie and hubby Glen's second is due this month. Nephew Keith and his wife Michelle's baby is due in April, Marc and Sam's in May and my nephew Lee is going to be a dad around June time.

Only 3 weeks to go !!!

I've just got over a really sore throat, there just seems so many viruses going around at the moment. I've never had so many colds as I have this year, and this last bout had me worried at it just came out of nowhere, one minute I was fine next I just felt rough. I had a couple of days off work which helped as it's not nice having to work when you feel ill. Hopefully I wont have any more for a good while.
Went out with Marc, Sam and the boys for something to eat on Tuesday, it was better than cooking as I'd had a really busy day at school and just didn't feel like going home to cook.

Well only 3 weeks to Christmas day but only 2 weeks until we break up from school for the holidays - am I ready - I am so not ready, although I've done better this year than last. I'm not the most organised when it comes to Christmas but I do get there eventually. It's been trying hard to snow for the last few days but we seem to have missed it although mam said it had been snowing in the north east. I'm sure we'll get some before the year it out. Just in case I don't manage to blog before Christmas have a blessed and wonderful time.
