    Default Your day, Friday, February 1st 2013

    Good afternoon everyone,

    I am always happy when it is February because there is always more chance of a spring day.
    Of course if you look out my window now, you wuold think that spring is far far away.
    But knowing Dutch weather we could almost have a heat wave next week or a snow storm - you can never tell.

    Today I have - for a change - been cleaning and doing laundry.
    Also went to the cash and carry to get a new vacuum cleaner.
    I bought a dyson - always wanted one and now it was on offer.

    Have a great evening/afternoon everyone!

    Good morning havnt been here in a few days, this week got very busy! we have been having quite a few meetings with the youngests school, they are changing his curriculum slightly which will hopefully help with some of the meltdowns lately I jst love this school so much its a shame he cant stay here forever but its only till sept 2014 when he will join mainstream.

    how do you like your dyson? I got one a couple of years ago after buying cheap ones and having them break constantly..i decided that the most cost effective way was to get a decent one! i love it.

    its been a week of housework and meetings and i have no idea what has happened to the rest of my days..it flew by! this weekend my daughter has a friend over for a sleepover and i need to get some sewing orders completed and some cards made up..apart from that i plan to take the boys for a nice walk along the beach/ woods..its actually not raining for once so we need to make the most of it!
    Have a good weekend everyone!

    Let us know how you like your Dyson. I used to have one and hated it, so I will now always have a trusty Henry!

    Yesterday was a ton of fun. We decided against going to Nottingham in the end and went to Shrewsbury instead. And it was the right decision. Has anyone ever been? What a place! Why people go to York or Chester instead I will never know. It is amazing! I could go on all day about the place, I am desperate to go back and we plan to very soon, had it not been for the buns I think we would have stayed for the weekend. Beautiful, beautiful and amazing.

    Hi Rachael, we cross posted, a sleepover sounds fun and maybe a little hectic! What kind of things do you sew?

    oh cool, I'll have a look at your facebook page.

    Shrewsbury really is worth a look. I've always been one of those people who could never understand when people went on about how they loved a place and wanted to visit all the time. Now I understand it, it's the first place I've ever felt that way about. If I can remember how to do it I'll stick a few photos up somewhere, but they don't really give a true idea of how amazing it is.
