After the horrible start to my day yesterday things did improve. Matthew came home from school and was actually quite nice, having morphed back into a human at some point during the day, he was still on go slow but that's nothing new. Kyle got the talking to last night about not dumping your girlfriend by text as that makes you a bit of a toad. Apparently Matt had seen Vicky (the ex) outside the Drama studio sobbing her heart out - bless.

Everything at school went well last night and Matt finally decided on Triple Science, Art and Geography for his GCSE options we just have to cross our fingers that these can all be time tabled together and he doesn't have to make any alterations as I really don't feel like dealing with the TEENAGE strop that, that will cause.


Today's word is three at HS:MS so I snapped these 3 guys who are sat on my living room floor. They, along with about 60 others, are very patiently sitting there waiting for me to photograph them so that they can be sold. I can't believe how sad I will be to see them go as Kyle was dinosaur mad for about 6 years and this means my little baby is getting all growed up :(

great photo, it must be so sad when you realise that your little ones are no longer little, my brother (11) and sister (15) have grown up so much in the last 5 years I cant help but still think of them as babies lol.

Fab shot, my son loved dinosaurs too. He had 3 large ones which are still up in the attic. I gave away the rest but couldn't part with those 3. When I say I am saving them for my grandchildren he just rolls his eyes!

Hope you are now ok Rach {{hugs}}

Sarah's ex phoned her up, asked her how she was, what kind of day she had had and then dumped her . . . nicely! I think this just about gets as good as it can and I am thankful he had the guts to do this. He was so nice BUT now I could . . . etc him!! How dare he!!

Oh the options. Josh did his last year and Sarah does hers next! A stressful time. Josh actually takes a GCSE this year . . . I think! I am sure he isn't old enough . . . must check his birth certificate!

Love the dino's. Josh loved playing with dino's too when younger.

Bye for now . . . Sue

Always distressing when the kids are getting all grown up - because they just get more expensive as well as moody (so I'm told!).

Love the dinos!

Louise said...

awwwwww, it must be sad to see them go, even though they are a pian in the bum when you trip over them/findthem in your bed/sit on one that has been dropped in your bath/here them banging around in the washing machine... yess all of the above have happened with our dinos!!!

Great colours

Glad to see things have improved since yesterday Rach...
Loving the Dinosaur pic for 'three' cool!!
It IS sad when your little one starts to undo the apron strings BUT you can't keep everything or there'd be no room for you to live there lol

etteY said...

Great dinosaur shot, do my eyes deceive me, or do two of them have moving jaws - unlike almost everyone else I don't have a lot of experience with them, can't believe the colours that they come in too!

We tried out your Pork & Prunes last night and it was really yummy, the prunes got so sweet and juicy, great contrast with the pork. Caribbean Chicken is also on the list for the next few days.

Bradley is a form of High functioning Astism and luckly we have not gone over the edge with dinosaurs. We have with Spider-Man, god I hate Spider-Man and now we areon a slow track to Star Wars. Not sure if it will last. Spider-man lasted the last two years in our house.
I do like the dinosaurs though.
