Getting There

Well I`m here again though I`m still not completely used to the format of Blogspot. It seems to be taking me forever to add links to all the new journals and then I couldn`t work out how to add graphics to my ABOUT Me section. Thankfully Jeannette came to my rescue as she has so many times in the past and I now seem to have a vague idea how to do!

The weather has been wet and miserable all day though less cold than the last few days. Friday was absolutely freezing and felt more like the end of November than the start of October. I`m not a `cold` person but it really got to me and I just couldn`t get warm despite the central heating.

Kerry, Slava and Roman are here for the weekend and yesterday evening we babysat while Kerry and Slava went out for a meal and a well-earned break. Much as I love my Little Man he is going through a demanding phase and his mum and dad needed some time off. He certainly did keep us entertained though as he always comes out with some little gem. Yesterday we were talking about his growing up and going to work just like daddy. I told him that he could be a policeman, a fireman or even a bank manager. He looked quite serious for a moment and then said, " or a super hero!" Well, we just burst out laughing at his little joke though I think Roman was very serious about his career!

I haven`t seen Danny for over a week. I know he is seeing someone but he`s keeping very tightlipped about it. Hmmm...a mother`s instinct tells me that there is more to this than meets the eye. Watch this space and I`ll keep you informed of developments.........

A little while ago I was in the kitchen and I decided to have a quick look at the garden, I couldn`t believe my eyes when I saw a balloon lying in the bushes. How did it get there? I suppose the wind blew it there and it decided to stay. I just hope Jake doesn`t bite it because he`ll get a shock if he does.
I am disappointed that I was unable to link my tribute to Hannah to this blog. I did it right but for some reason I kept getting a `fault` message. Oh well, I might redo it as my memories of her haven`t faded and I`m sure I could do her justice all over again

I`ll say goodbye now because the family are going home and I want to say goodbye. I hope to get over to your blogs some time this evening. Bye Bye for now and take care. :o)


  1. You are doing brilliantly Sandra. It all takes time - I know I have spent most of the last five days on here!!!!
    Even if our old journals do transfer successfully here, and I have my doubts, I shall stick with this one now. I have put some much time and effort into it. Lol at Roman, what are they like.
    Nathan is going through a strange phase, being very rude to his Mum and went he goes swimming he now refuses to get in the water and spends the whole time sitting on the side. I do not think he is adjusting to school well at all.

    The weather has been awful and it has been cold here, or maybe it is just that I feel the damp. We never had a summer and now we have months of miserable weather to look forward to.

    Sandra, go into your settings and take word verification off. It plays havoc with eyes. Easy, you just have to click the off button. Thanks my friend. I have tried posting this three times because of word verification.

  2. It looks awesome, Sandra! I saw your link for Hannah in your profile. I just got done reading it. Hope you get it saved over here. I'm sure someone knows how to transfer it. xx

  3. Ugh, I keep getting an error when I try to add myself as a follower. I'll be back. It may just be AOL acting up again. It's been awful this weekend. xx

  4. It does seem strange after being used to AO Hell but I expect in six months we will be wondering what all the fuss was about

  5. Oh you are doing just fine...and you will get the hang of it for a while. Did you know you can move your template boxes around when you are in layout mode? I figured that out and like the fact that you can move your side bar around and rearrange. I did not get that the first time I was on it. Glad you are spending time with your family. Hmmmm on what your son is up to. That had me tickled. lol New girlfriend taking his time?
    Hope all is well and hopefully will be able to keep up with you here better on blogspot. I like having recent updates coming up on the dashboard. Take care.

  6. you have written often about how cool it has been all summer for you strange! It is chilly here early and then gets HOT. Crazy weather. I can just hear Roman talking about being a super hero. love you!
