Today I was blessed with an unexpected visit from my Grandad and his best friend, which would normally be fine if it wasnt half term and I wasnt burried in endless amounts of mess.

My grandfathers friend I have only met a few times and today I learnt a valuable lesson - Dont ask old people how they are, because it will result in a half an hour conversation (of time you cant really spare) of babble about their health resulting in a 'lets bash the NHS' moan. "Fine thanks" would have worked so much better for me.

And I absolutely object to any old people, who arnt related to us in anyway, refering themselves as 'uncle' to endear them to children. Kids arnt stupid you know - Whoever thought they are is very very mistaken.

And one last thing, it is not polite to visit someones house and pull the cats tail just because its long, pretty and fluffy. I am not wrong about this am I? Poor Posh the cat was horrified.

It was however nice to see my grandad, he doesnt really visit often enough and I love him to bits.

Dear family centre

Did you stop for one second to realise how your "Staff training day" would effect our lives today. I mean I dont mean to be picky but since you are only open three days a week for a measly four hours did it not occur to you to pick one of the other four days of the week to sit around discussing how well your doing? (What you call training)

Did it not also occur to you that during the school holidays your centre would be busier? I mean where is your sense.

Now I have to put up with two bored children for the rest of the day who are dissapointed that they have walked all the way over to you to find you closed. Four year olds dont really understand "staff training" as an excuse.

OMG I have heartburn from hell this morning - And I havent eaten anything yet so go figure. I must have drunk about three litres of water and have taken tablets. So now I am trying to occupy myself with anything until they kick in hence the blogging.

Anyone else notice that Blogger has been an absolute pain in the arse today?? Bet ya have.

I finally have peace from my lovely but very strange children, Ethan decided to kiss all his money goodnight (and as he has over £3 in small change that takes a while) He has an abnormal obsession with money and I have no idea how to curb it.

And Joanna has successfully finished her first playstation 2 game (Crash Bandicoot Tag team racing) which means she is itching for a new challenge and a new game (which is costly)

Myself I have decided its that time of year to crash diet again and I am back on the slimfast. Hubby has decided to embark on the challenge with me - only problem is he will stick to it and I will end up cursing him in a few weeks time (look out for the rant on here shortly)

Have to go and do a ton of Ebaying now - Have been putting it off all day.

So its all change around here, I guess after the last post I figured I should put a bit more effort in. Thanks to all who emailed me and thanks to family members (who shall remain nameless) who told other family members who then lectured me on why I should be thankful and yes they are right....I should be.

I am feeling much more cheerful now - especially today, because last night after a week in hiding, the wart on my face fell off. (cue laughter) Yes this may not seem like much to you but having a huge witch wart on your face for nearly a year does nothing for your confidence. You seen the Austin Powers film and the mole scene - Well that was me. So I bought some special stuff from USA (because my doctor refused to give me anything) and the end result is today it is gone. So now my sisters nickname for me (moleeeee) is history.

In other news my sister got a seventies style haircut (she made the error of letting my mother cut her hair) I discovered there are only nine weeks till we all go to USA and crap I havent got the kids passports yet, Ethan proved he was is hard as nails by not crying whilst getting his MMR (when I asked him how he was so brave he said it was because he couldnt possibly cry in front of three lady nurses!!!!) and finally Joanna has developed a disturbing addiction the the playstation and playing it for eight hours at a time - I am not sure if this is bad or good - I will get back to you.

I could spend ages apologising for not blogging but I am not gonna bother.

I am trying to cut back on the time I spend online - Otherwise I may just spend all of my thirties sat here as well. Call it a midlife crisis if you will but I am really restless at the moment - I am currently in the middle of compiling a top ten list of things to do before I die .... What does that say huh?

Its not intentional I dont intend to moan but I dont see my husband from one week to the next and whilst my children are in school all I have to do is pick up after them, sometimes it just seems pointless.

Soooo I am trying with all my resolve to be more proactive, But it all takes time. I am only changing small things at the moment and thats hard enough.

It will all be ok though because very soon easter will be here and I can eat tons of chocolate without needing an excuse!!!!
