Another photoless post.

This time it is down to pure laziness as I did take some pictures in the snow, I just can't be bothered to load them at the moment. Pete took the boys sledging early this morning while I had a nice long hot bath in peace and quiet - total bliss. When they got back Pete and I took the dogs and the camera out down near the river before the snow melted completely. As soon as we got back from there we got back in the car and went to Cheshire Oaks to have some lunch and to go and watch 'Spiderwick Chronicles' which turned out to be not a bad film. It even had Andrew McCarthy in it who I had a HUGE crush on when I saw him in 'Mannequin' and 'St Elmo's Fire' as a teenager. Such a shame he was only in it for a few minutes as boy has he aged well. As an added bonus we managed to get Kyle a pair of new 'Vans' shoes while we were there and believe me getting Kyle anywhere near a shoe shop is not easy. When we got back home we took out the beef brisket that had been cooking for 8 hours, in the slow cooker, in a full bottle of Chilean red wine and had it for tea with gravy made from the winey, meaty juices - Mmmmmm totally delicious. Now I am going to settle down in front of a coal fire and watch a DVD with a cup of tea and an apple. I would prefer wine and chocolate but I HAVE to loose weight before the summer.

Good grief Rach, that's an awful lot to do in one day! I only managed getting my trousers at half-mast LOL

Our house is.. colourful. The study is snooker table green, the bathroom is ginger, the lounge is yellow for sun and the bottom half is turquoise blue for the sea. I demanded the bedroom stay pale blue, but I regret it now: it's too wishy-washy!
