I've woken up to a bit of a problem. Our village post office has disappeared! And surprisingly it's nothing to do with the Post Office deciding to close it - the shop it was housed in has closed down, so now - no post office until they find it a new home..

Think we might have to catch the bus to the next village and use theirs instead!

Bee Bar

Bill came home from school and made a Bee Buffet Bar - he loves bees and carries them around on the tip of his finger if he finds one in the garden! Makes me a bit nervous..
(Needless to say he hasn't been stung...yet..)
He's wedged it in the tree so it'll be easy for the bees to find :)

The holiday starts here!!

We haven't been on holiday for a whole year! Is that possible? No wonder I'm looking forward to this one.
I've been really busy this week trying to get everything done - 50 small houses for a wholesale order are very nearly finished and should be in the post at school pick up time.
There's still a huge pile of ironing, plant watering, surfboard finding, fish tank cleaning.... and other stuff I've forgotten.

This is our Cornwall song, which always reminds me of our first camping trip together :)

To Do

My To-Do list is out of control... I don't think it would fit on one of these great 'Mini Goals' blackboards from Mary Kate McDevitt - wonder if she makes bigger ones (I'm thinking school sized ones?)

Looking forward to a week away in Cornwall on Friday!

You really don't notice how much you need a car, until.. you haven't got one :(
Tom and I have been catching the bus to pre-school, which is fun - but then I have to wait two hours to catch the bus back (or walk two miles with my poorly toe...)
So, I made the most of it this morning and had breakfast in The Market Pantry with 'The Cloudspotter's Guide' for company - I now know all about Contrails and the Morning Glory clouds of Northern Australia!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! I'm going to do a bit of cloudspotting!

I crashed the car this morning.
Quite badly - the airbag went off and scared me to death..
I also think I've broken my toe, which isn't too bad really - could be a lot worse! Will go and get it looked at tonight. I'm just glad the boys weren't in the car.
The car.. doesn't look good...
Quite ironic in fact, that I was on my way to the printers to pick up some of these -

PS Don't tell my mother!
