Very shortly after I blogged on Saturday I got a phone call from hubby in work, He sounded strange, said he was coming home right away, I knew from his voice that he had had hurt.

He got home 20 minutes later as white as a sheet. He was using the controls on a hiab crane to move a cabin off his truck, the ground under the trailer collapsed and sent the cabin swinging forward where he just happened to be standing, It hit and pinned him up against a hedge. His workmates managed to get him out within a minute. He is covered in bruises, cuts and lumps but very fortunately he is ok. Now and again these things happen to him and each time I am utterly amazed that he manages to escape with his life.

Yesterday was his birthday and he went to work despite the fact he was still hurting. This weekend I am planning on a little party with the kids for him to show him he is appreciated.

Oooo oooo and Guess what??? I lost three pounds, despite cheer-up chinese food on Saturday.

I have a love-hate thing going on with the internet, Given the chance I would spend my entire day surfing the net however when it breaks, gets infested with a virus or even goes a little slow I find it the most annoying frustrating thing in the world that has to be fixed there and then despite how desperate cooking tea for the kids is!

In the last three weeks my modem has packed in forcing me to buy a new one. Before I go on why does everything you buy come with a quickstart guide - That never works!!!! Its total bollocks. I think you can guess where I am going with this - Thats right - It didnt work. Three and a half hours on the phone to a techie and the best he can come up with is .."You must have an old house and thick walls and ..... well sometimes wireless just doesnt work" , To which my answer was "The house is just over a year old, wireless worked fine here up until now and your as much help as a chocolate watch"

My hotmail got hacked last week sending shitloads of spam email to everyone - Hotmail sucks.

Then I get a virus on my laptop forcing me to spend four hours looking for a solution because Norton is totally incapable of doing the one thing it is supposed to do.

Can you tell I am in a bad mood? Lack of sugar ..... Yes thats right I started my diet. I hate every moment but I am determind to stick to it ...... unless someone offers me a chocolate watch!

Why didnt I start my diet on January 1st ? - Because it was New years day and no one starts on new years day.

Why hadnt i Started my diet on January 2nd ? Because I still had a cold and needed comforting - so ate loads of chocolate.

Why didnt I start my diet last weekend? There is no point until everyone goes back to school and work and things go back to normal.

So why didnt I start my diet today? Well because the kids had an inset day and there was a box of christmas biscuits left that were calling my name.

Why will I definately start my diet tomorrow ? Because I just saw how fat I look in this photo ......gutted..

(A very rare picture of me on the left with my sister Natalie at christmas)

After outwitting my son Ethan today he asks "how did you know that?"

I answered "Because I am your mother and I know everything!"

He replys "You dont .... You dont know Gods phone number"

Outsmarted by a 5 year old ................. He's got a point though!!!!!
