What happened to Autumn? We had a week of beautiful crisp clear sunny autumnal days and then BANG welcome to winter :( It's dark when I get up in the morning now, soon it will be dark by the time I get home - this is a word of warning, I get verrryyyy grumpy when I don't get enough daylight....sometimes I think I should hibernate.

My teenage daughter thinks I am a money tree and can't seem to understand that the branches are now bare and that if she wants money she has to the moment she is sulking because I can't afford for her to have her hair cut and coloured, or buy her the latest must have wear them once then never wear them again boots.

I must confess I am having those 'run away from it all thoughts' again - I know it's the weather, the gloom, the general ~mehness~ of pre-christmas, but sometimes the urge is so strong....I want to jump on a plane and head for New mexico - I want to see the big sky, the vast open spaces...

what makes clearing up after a drunken puking teenager worthwhile? seeing them suffer the hangover from hell the next day - never have the words 'leave me alone I want to die' made me smile so much *angel*

Doing the work of two people is tiring, I know I should be used to it as even when she is here she doesn't do her share of the work, never had and never will....but trying to do ALL the work in 25 hours is just exhausting - my wrist throbs constantly and my back aches....that isn't helped by my mattress [which is old and not as supportive as it should be], but I have a new one arriving on the 30th of this month - YAY.

This winters projects are - re-organise and dig over [getting rid of a lot of old plants than no longer please me] the front garden, re-pave the back garden leaving some room for planters, re-decorate the living room [which means buying two new sofas and trying out the plasma screen on all walls to see where it looks happiest, of course one wall is a wall of windows and one has the fireplace so that only leaves two, on one of which the TV currently resides, so basically I am left with the wall on the left as you walk into the room...Hmm it would look odd there - I need to draw up my room and make paper templates of the furniture and have a play around ]

One of the hardest things will be choosing new sofas...I foresee many hours spent in furniture stores sitting on sofas :)

4.53am and I can't sleep...I am tired, I must be tired, I keep yawning......anyone care to sing me a lullaby :D

I need to get to sleep, I have stuff to do tomorrow - it's the big bike-fest in the city and I am supposed to be'll be fun as long as it stays dry, wet leathers are not much fun to wear.....

I'll go and drink warm milk and read for a while....that might work.

Smilies don't show up *is sad*
Raeven posted @ 15:47 - Link - comments (1)

Seeing as how everyone is blogging, I thought I'd join in smile [I wonder if the smilies will show up, if not this sentence won't make very much sense]

I have no idea what will go in here, if anything.

Being British I must start by commenting on the weather - there is a strange yellow thing in the sky, I dimly recall having seen it in the past, but it's been so long, I forget it's name.....the rain has finally stopped, so I can postpone the building of the Ark.

I want to go on holiday again, this time I want to go alone or with friends, I want a secluded beach, a warm sea, cocktails, laughter and relaxation....or a cabin in the woods...just somewhere private, where the trials and tribulations of the outside world won't phones, no computers....we'll make our own music, cook over an open fire, toast marshmallows, look at the stars.......
