I went to the circus and then a party and lastly shoe shopping


Here I am at last getting around to writing a new post, it has been one thing after another the last 4 or 5 days. Anyway here is the latest news from me. 

Friday night I didn't have Little Leo, instead I had My Blain for the night but he was unable to stay with me on Saturday so I took him over to his Aunty Kathy's place and she watched him during the day. Natasha was working doing bus marshalling over the weekend. Tim wasn't here Friday night either as he was doing rail work over the weekend.

On Saturday I went to the circus with Jessica and Leo, we bought our tickets the week before but after we bought the tickets Leo was awarded 2 tickets to the show for the student who has made the most progress during the term. So Jessica & Leo went twice, the first time they went was on Thursday night and that night for some reason Jessica had Blain for the night so she took him too and she was the one who paid for his ticket. Jessica said both boys loved it, so when we went on Saturday Leo was a little distracted I think because he had seen it before. 

Saturday night I had Leo for the night since I didn't have him Friday night.  Then on Sunday I went over to my sisters for my niece Denni's first birthday I was going to take Leo with me but at 10am he says to me "I think it is time I go home" so I took him home. 

I made a pasta bake for the party and I also bought an ice cream cake for Denni, Denni loves ice cream and the day was hot and cold when the sun was out it was warm then it would get covered by clouds and it would feel cold, at least it didn't rain but it felt like rain all day and we had a couple of small showers. 

Today I went with Kathy to look for new shoes for her to wear to work, we went to Charlie and went to 6 different stores and found nothing, one store had a pair she liked but they didn't have her size, they found the right size in another of their branches, so I went and picked up the shoes after Kathy brought me home and she went home to her place. When I get home here Jessica rings and asks can Leo come over for a vist for a few hours, at first I said no in fact I said no a few times but she went on and on till I changed my mind and gave in and said yes. So he was here for 3hrs this afternoon. 

During the last few days I have only managed to read about a dozen blogs each day but I guess it is better then nothing.

  7. It sounds like such a busy but fun time. I love it when it feels like you've done something but then I dislike the fact I can't do any of my hobbies either.

  8. May I have a million dollars? If I ask you enough times, you'll give in, right?

  9. I, too, am behind in reading blogs. I am trying to get caught up today.

    The circus is always so fun for kids. I haven't been to one in a very long time.

    So you give in when someone keeps asking, huh? You need to stick to your guns and say NO means No.
