As today is DD3's 11th birthday, we were planning to take her out for the day as a special treat.
First, the car decided to play up, refusing to start, so it has had to go into the garage to be serviced today. We didn't fancy driving a hundred miles on a day -out trip to end up stranded there overnight....
Secondly, the weather is atrocious here. We have had torrential rain for hours, high winds and it is generally cold and unpleasant - and that is *in* the house !! So it wouldn't be much fun being out walking in that. Even the dog didn't want to hang around in the garden .....now that has to be a first !!
We are just chilling, lounging and sufferin' at the moment.
DD3 was thrilled with her present of all 15 of Caroline Lawrence's Roman Mysteries books and a learn to play the guitar book, amongst others :-)
DD4 is busy making another surprise craft present for her adored big sister, with a little help from me on some tricky "cutting out with scissors" bits.
Me ? Well, I am just taking advantage of the unplanned peace and quiet to do a spot of blogging...... such a rarity for me, LOL !
