Bring me sunshine...

in your smile
Bring me laughter all the while
In this world where we live
There should be more happiness
So much joy you can give
To each brand new bright tomorrow

Make me happy through the years
Never bring me any tears
Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above
Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love.

but at least make it warmer. Purlease....
Gorgeous sunny day today but man it's cold. If you found yourself a sheltered sunny spot then you could just about agree to spring being on its way but in the shade brrrrr forget it. My croci (is that right?) or crocuses (better?) are enjoying the sun and the woofs are more willing to sit outside for a bit longer now before they scurry back inside.

Big one has got a friend over tonight and possible again tomorrow night for a sleepover. I'm already shattered with the thought of the lack of sleep. :)

They're off to a band/singing comp tomorrow so they've had one of their other friends round who plays guitar. They sounded amazing so I'll be very surprised if they don't do well. My excited for tomorrow will be taking wee one to go shopping for some new indoor shoes for school. Yes that's right they have to have seperate shoes for wearing inside the school. Shoes that have never been tainted with the ground of the outdoors. Fresh as the day they came off the factory line! The school is 10 years old and it's a policy that they put in place when the school opened to keep the floors in good condition. Aaah but you may ask do the teachers have separate indoors shoes, the cleaners, the cooks, teacher assistants, visitors? Well no apparantely no they don't. Bizarre. So as wee one seems to have worn her indoors shoes to death, that is the sole of one of them is threadbare (oh don't I feel like a great mum, but to be fair these shoes never come home) we have to buy some new ones.

But on sunday I'm going to collect 20, yes that TWENTY years worth of Country Living magazines. A lovely lady offered them on freecycle and I am the lucky lucky recipient. I can't even begin to imagine what 20 years worth of magazines is going to look like though. Think my car might be slightly lopsided on the way home!

A friend emailed me this today and I thought it would be fun to put here and see if anyone would like to play along. It may look easy but see how long it takes you. ;)

I LOVE that song always reminds me of my Dad as he and I used to Eric and Ernie it around the house together :) Isn't Freecycle fab?
Have a great weekend. I really must go to bed now too!

Hope you got some sleep!!! Maybe earplugs is the answer if it's on again tonight, though I'm too paranoid that the smoke alarm would go off or something :-S

I think it's crocii??? That doesn't look right though! I say crocuses anyway. I might have a bash at your first letter thing today.

Oh and don't worry I won't turn into a stepford, it's just not going to happen! For a start I can't afford Uggs and secondly I only just got a hairdryer (second hand from my mum in law!)... it's not going to happen :D
