Summer's here

Well that's the small people home for the next 6 weeks or so. They broke up for summer this Friday just gone. Much to their and my relief. I can't tell you how thrilled I am not to have to set the alarm clock for tomorrow morning. :)

I see I was not alone in thinking that coffee machine thingy was a tadge expensive. I'll definately be sticking to my kettle and spoon for now, especially as no company has been forthcoming in wanting one reviewed. LOL

We've had some exciting news since I last posted. Big one has been selected to go to Malawi next summer with the Scouting Association. I'm so proud of her for having the gumption to want to do this. Now we have to start some serious fund raising though as she has to raise £2,200. Yep I did say £2,200. :o Any suggestions for how to fund raise will be gratefully received.

Time I got my bum into gear and set up a shop maybe.

How exciting for Big one, fingers crossed on the money front. You could always start busking ;)

Malawi?! That's amazing, very very cool and exciting.

Fundraising isn't my specialty I'm afraid, I wish I had something insightful and cool to suggest but I don't!

I can't wait for Twiglet to finish school, I was traipsing back this morning, yawning my head off. I'll do a sponsored snogathon with DT to fundraise for you if you wish :)I also had another idea but it's rude so I'll email you - haha
