Saturday wasn’t great.  It wasn’t bad but it was just average.  I had been at our parents house.  I had stayed on Friday and my plan was to stay until Monday.  Then this morning I heard on the radio that the weather was supposed to get really bad with temps of minus five C tonight so I decided I’d go home and turn on my heat, so the house wouldn’t flood.  Mom decided this morning that we’d go to my house, drop Nitro off there, do a few bits around the house and then after we finished go visit our granddad.  We got a taxi to my house and did what we had to do.  I went to use my desktop when my mom was doing the laundry and I accidentally hit mute for my speech synthesizer so now it wont work.  We tried to fix it but my moms not very good at computers so she wasn’t sure what to do. Its ok though my lil sister will fix it probably tomorrow or if not then during the week.  After all that we decided to walk from my house to our granddads.  I’ve been really trying to get into walking, I walked yesterday for 30 minutes, and todays walk to our granddads was about 30 minutes too.  It nearly killed me though!  By the time I was done my back was killing me.  When we got to our granddads he was up, sitting and watching tv.  We bought lunch and ate it and just chatted with our granddad for a while.  I think we stayed about 2 hours in total.  Then I dropped mom home and went home myself.  Didnt do much for the rest of the evening, just chilled out in front of the tv.  Am starting a new book tomorrow called another forgotten child by Cathy glass.  Cant wait to start it as I love all of her books.

My niece is sooo funny!

My niece is six. She’s very funny. Heres a funny convo we had the other day.

It was dinner time. We were all sitting down to eat. Our mom plated up Laurens food. But Lauren wanted it in a bowl.

I happened to be eating soup out of a bowl.

So I say to Lauren
“Lauren, only babies eat out of bowls, your a big girl”

And her response?????

“But you have a bowl! How come you have a bowl, are you a baby?”

Hahahaha she caught me out good there! Everybody started hysterically giggling and asking me what was I gonna say to that statement. Of course I had no answer!

She’s so damn smart!

Its beginning to look a lot like xmas

I love xmas. I love shopping, even if I get majorly stressed out trying to figure out what I should buy for everyone

There is something magical about going xmas shopping and hearing all the lovely music blaring out from the stereo systems in the stores. And I love imagining what people will be like on xmas day when they receive their gift from me.

Tonight I went shopping with our mom and aunt…despite feeling miserable earlier on today. Our aunt was getting groceries, so mom and me decided to go with her and have a look around for some xmas gifts.

I ended up buying my sisters gifts. I spent 50 euro on her, but I got her a few things instead of one big thing. I wanted to do that because I think its nice to have a few little things to open.

So, she got for xmas from me…

A bag, which I think is beautiful, its black and all furry on the outside of it. I got her a cover for her I phone, which is all glittery. I got her some costume jewellery, you know the dress kind that isn’t real, but looks nice if your going out for a night. I got her a set with perfume and body spray in it. And I got her a gift set which has a mug, a spoon, some green tea and chocolate chip cookies in it. She will be a happy bunny on xmas I’m pretty sure of that.

I think I mentioned it before but we are doing secret santa this year with my sisters boyfriends family. Its much better as we each picked one name out of the hat and we have to buy for that person. I got my sisters boyfriends sister. I was pleased I got her because she was easy to buy for. The limit we are meant to spend on the persons gift is 30 euro. So…I got her a huge gift basket for exactly 30 euro. There is tons of stuff in the gift basket, its stuff like body wash, deodorant, shampoo, shower gel, soap, etc. The brand I got I know she loves so thats awesome and I am chuffed to bits.

So all in all, I got lots of things and it was a pretty good trip and thats two more people done and dusted for xmas.
