Yeah!!! Weekend ahoy! Thank Goodness although I have had a good week :) The oven was cleaned today and looks brand new. Its getting colder by degrees here and I forecast a cold weekend. Had a trim on the hair, nothing major you will be pleased to hear :)

Not long now until we hear which school Eddie got. Fingers crossed he gets Aylesbury Grammar. Its the BEST school. He has the brain :) They have the technology. Its all good.

Ok, back to more important things.

Today on....Return To Eden.

Stephanie rushes after Dan after he throws his toys from the pram and feels neglected. Altogether now...Ahhhh... Cassie ups the gold lame stakes with a glitzy all in one with matching hair accessory. Jake (who lurves Steph) sleeps with Jilly again (even though he lurves Steph) and gets control of Harper Mining. OOHHHH...... Dashing back to her work,Steph jumps off a boat just as it blows up with stroppy Dan on board!!! Oh No....The suspense... Is Dan alive? Can Steph swim without worrying about Harper Mining? Will Sarah EVER find hair straighteners? The answers to all these questions on Monday....

Until then, Croc fans...

Ok, why do people post on Facebook without thinking? I have a client on there who just posted how much she loves her new haircut. I didn't do it. Nice. That's how I found out. No word from her to say she is unhappy or she is going to someone else (which I don't care about) She is one of my "friends" too so she knows I read her posts. Charming. As Bob pointed out, people rarely think and he is dead right.

You can read Bob's blog here... I heartily recommend it.

Are people that rude? Or did she just think "oh well" or did she simply not care? Who knows. It's hurtful though considering I always dropped everything to fit her in. No loyalty. No intelligence. No big loss. I have hidden her posts now and will remove her completely next week. Doubt she will notice though.

Anyway......back to our regular blog!

I missed Return To Eden today so you will all be heartbroken to hear no review for that episode. However will be back to update you tomorrow.

Do I hear bated breath?

Its freezing today! I made the effort to do my hair and makeup and wear a nice dress, it does make you feel a bit better!

Davina was getting easier today. I managed to do the whole thing without stopping and did another section of the DVD!!!! Mind you I looked like a tomato when I had finished LOL.

Today on Return To Eden..... Dan and Steph have argued..Jake Sanders HAS to be stopped, people!!!!! Jilly who has turned out to be Steph's sister has spent the whole episode moaning about how she served 7 years for Steph's attempted murder, plus jumping into bed with Jake and Phillip (exhusband) Dennis drives the banana Porsche with Cassie who still is loving her gold lame. Oh and Angelo the boxer is actually called Angelo in real life because he can't remember an extra name.

To Stephanie!!!

And Relax!

I have just sat down! I did 40 mins of Davina again (go me) it was slightly easier, not much but I didn't weeze this time. Always a plus.

I have a hair appointment on Fri. Just a cut, I am tempted to do something radical but I probably will stick to "just the ends" Last time I went for the chop Jason didn't talk to me for a week. Well I did go from long to short. Never mind.

Today on Return To Eden, Dan has gone from a plastic surgeon to brain surgeon! Wow, the versatility. There is Sarah (you could trick or treat with her hair) and Cassie who wears too much gold lame to be decent. Stephanie has gone into a meltdown after finding a crocodile in her swimming pool (like you do) and is now having endless flashbacks to her original croc encounter and is seeing her damaged face before Dan the man fixed it for her. Confused? Eat the ham up!

Dear Lord!!

Davina, what have you done to me????? I did 40 mins of kick boxing with Davina today on her DVD. It was really hard work and I was sweating buckets when I was done but I did it!!! Go me! Then I did my power plate for 10 mins. My thigh muscles are going to reeeeeeally hurt tomorrow but I am determined to carry on. I can't afford the gym but this I can do in my lounge everyday so no excuses can be accepted. For the first time in weeks I dont feel like going to bed and my mood has lifted! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!

Why is it even though I and millions of others pay road tax, the roads are full of potholes? Its a disgrace. Driving back from Reading tonight was ridiculous, I looked drunk as I weaved across the road to avoid damaging my car. *sigh*

Its getting cold again, I am sitting here with the fire on trying to warm up. I shall go to bed shortly and watch telly from under my duvet. My mission tomorrow is to buy tiles for my bathroom floor. After 7 years I have tired of the carpet and have decided to replace the flooring. Sounds simple but knowing how the universe works I will dig up a body or something nasty ;)

No Return To Eden update today, its back Monday I bet you all can't wait!!!!!!

Thank God its Friday.

I have purchased one new sports bra and running trousers. I am all set.

I ate sausages last night and the sausage gods have punished me. Punished me beyond anything!!!!! No more sausages for me.

I have done a DIY bird feeder made from the netting of oranges. Its very Blue Peter and its got lovely birdie food in it. Bring on the birds! Not Hitchcock Birds, normal birds... heh.

Quick Return To Eden update... Stephanie has bad dreams, Jake wants her company, Dan is well..Dan and everyone is doublecrossing everyone else all to a stirring guitar ridden 80's soundtrack...Lovely hammy goodness!!!

I am watching Return To Eden. An epic Australian tail that follows Stephanie Harper after she was eaten by a crocodile. Plastic surgery and a whole lot of hammy acting later she gets her revenge complete with shoulder pads. Now, the story continues...... Between that and Dynasty I am all soaped out!

The Doctor reports my thyroid is fine. She suggests going to a gym. Ok love, I work 3 jobs, look after a child, cook, clean and if I'm lucky, sleep. Silly woman and I told her so. Oh and then she said I was depressed and there might be psycological problems. Well, I have been mad for years as Jason will testify but ummm she made it sound like I should be in Bedlam. Bloody healthcare professionals. I shall run again once my fractured foot heals which as I am sure you agree is a good excuse not to run at the moment.


Cup of green tea anyone?

It's Alive!!!!

Well. Bronchitus, sinusitus and a possible dead thyroid. The hits keep on coming!!! I have spent the week in bed coughing and dying by degrees. A blood test on Thurs left me with track marks which makes me look like I have a habit. I have a doc appointment on Thurs to see what gives.

Highly annoying.

Today I am feeling more normal but I get tired easily. I must wash the hair (washed 10 days ago) and address the bath issue! First a cup of tea and The Parent Trap with the late Natasha Richardson and Lindsey Lohan while she was cute.

Harvey was registered at the vet as a Hickman. They have disappeared next door again and Harvey clearly considers this his home even though Miss Hoops gets huffy on a regular basis. I shudder to think what would have become of the old man this winter.

Lunch with Mum and Dad tomorrow. Big Yum!

Birthday Girl

Well its my birthday. I am feeling and looking every inch my 37 years. Luckily I have a great posse who keep me grounded. I went out with them last night and had a hoot!! Despite Sarah falling over and clouting Sally in the nose, an accident I quickly add. Tonight Jason is taking me out. I am wearing my Chanel number5 that Jase and Ed bought me.

Some friends have forgotten. They are now off my friends list. One in particular. Birthdays fall on the same date every year, anyone who forgets is well, not worth bothering with. How hard is it to remember unless you are completely self absorbed.

Its cold here with more snow on the way. Ed has been off school for a week now. Monday is not looking great we shall see.

Well. Thats about it. Must change the profile ;)

Happy New Year!!!!¬!

A bit late I know but with colds, sinus trouble and general running around its been hectic. Well 15 inches of snow is forecast tonight. What joy. I bought Ed a sledge from Ebay purely because you can't get one anywhere else. We await its arrival.

Harvey is firmly one of the family now even taking over guarding duty from Harry.

My birthday approaches. 37!! The horror. I do feel old. I am hoping that this year is so much better than the last. However if this damp cold weather continues I will look like a little okld woman!!! LOL

Oh....Yes... Doctor Who. New logo, new Doctor.....time (geddit) will tell. I do like the look though and glad to see DT go.

Well, must go and batton down the hatches. Keep warm everyone!
