Success ...

... at last! Went to support eldest at an archery tournament on Sunday - one he'd been entering for the past 3 years. He's come third and second in both the single and double rounds but that first place has been elusive - until now! He won both the single and double by just one point each! Rounded the weekend off nicely for him and he needs a bit of good stuff at the moment following his marriage break up. He bought himself a 'new' car and collected it on Friday. He sold his old 'classic' Subaru Impreza (Scoobie) and bought himself a newer one ....

..... In showroom









In our drive Friday night .....


Hubby decided to do a bit of housework this morning and here's how he ended up! After 20 years in a wheelchair you'd think he'd know how to stay in it by now. Reckon he just wanted a quicker way of cleaning the hall floor and decided that sliding along on his back would work - LOL! He's just had a phone call from the dealership that's supplying his new car. It's here, in the country so, once it's adapted so he can drive it he'll be able to collect it. The very first brand new car he's had in his 69 (yep, he's 69 in a couple of weeks) years!


Good news - I've booked a day of classes at the Glitterpot on Friday! A replacement for today's cancellation, using vouchers given me for Christmas, with Jane again but this time not flowers but ......... owls are involved - LOL!

Thanks for dropping by .....

Why do men have to be such drama queens when they do a bit of housework?

Congratulations to your son and especially to Paul having waited such a long time for a brand new car. Hope they both enjoy their new chariots.
