We have had a horrible Bug that Euan picked up from school. It was one of those bugs that required 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' to recover. Euan loves my 'Homemade Chicken Soup'. The poor thing has been pretty poorly but is on the mend and will be back at school tomorrow. Today I went to Weigh In and had a 'Stay the Same'. Good grief. . . it is so easy to pack the weight on but so difficult to get it off again. Never mind at least I am not putting it on!
Henry had his first interview today for a job in a new 'Play Centre' that is opening in town. He makes me laugh. Belly laugh. He was very stressed out before the interview and I did not help at all because I find him hilarious when he is stressed or angry. The more hilarious I find him the more stressed he becomes! I was literally doubling up with my sides splitting. . . I can't help my 'Mothering Skills'. The problem was I asked him to take a last minute shave, he didn't want to, so I insisted! Then he gave himself a bright red rash! He was not happy. He shouted 'I can not go to an interview with these mutton chops!' My cackling did not appease him! He has come back really really enthusiastic about getting the job. I think it had something to do with the interviewer being 'hot'! It is all good because if he gets this job it will be lighter on my purse. It could mean he will 'host' children's disco's. I think this is hilarious too. One of the questions was ' You won't mind dancing about and making a bit of a fool of yourself will you?' Well when you want/need a job you have to say 'no you won't mind'. He also said he got really stumped on one question, they asked 'What will you do if you are hosting a Disco and the music player breaks?' Good Lord! Who would not panic in that situation? Henry looks terrified of the prospect. It sounds character building to me and besides 'what doesn't break you makes you stronger'.
Euan nominated our next door neighbour to receive a 'Harvest Festival' package from school. Poor Sid lost his wife this year and he has not been well. He was surprised and delighted when a big box of groceries arrived. I like 'Harvest Festival'.
You are not going to believe this but I am still decluttering! Will it ever end? I took five more bags to the Charity shop today so I have made some more space. It takes hours and honestly you cannot tell I have done anything. I am going through cupboards and draws and trying to get organised. By Christmas (2014) I should be done!
The troops are hungry here so I better go and 'play' Mom! Hopefully there maybe some time tonight to 'Tinkle on my Inkle' loom. I have been getting some tiny clothes crocheted in between playing nurse and feeling somewhat below par myself. Life eh? Another day in Paradise!
