Why does the washer have to break down when you have a huge pile of washing?
Yep, you guessed it, my washer has packed up on me!
The machine we have now is a hand me down so DH decided I could have a new one which will be here on Jan 7th, they wanted to deliver it the day before but I've got a hospital appt that day.
As it happens my Gran is away until at least the 2/3 Jan and we're feeding her cat so I can do a few loads there in the mean time.
The last Monday of 2003!
I can't believe it's almost a New Year, its gone by so quickly but I'll be glad to see the back of 2003, the last few months haven't been very good health wise for me and I hope 2004 will be much better.
Russ is in work today and the girls have gone doen the PO for me so I have a few quiet mins to myself.
This morning I've sat and gone through all my WIP's and made a list of them, altogether I have 47 projects with stitches in them, some haven't been worked on in years and some are very close to completion.
My aim for next year is to finish at least one of the TW's I have, get a few of those almost done one's finished and to get at least one of the older WIP's finished.
Hopefully I can be good and not start too many, I 'd like to finish the year with less WIP's than I started it with

It's coming up to 5am Christmas morning and here I am writing this instead of being fast asleep in a nice warm bed.
No I haven't stayed up late to finishing getting everything ready for the 'big' day, I woke 1/2 hour ago to go spend a penny and couldn't get back to sleep for the pain in my right hip.
I've taken a pain killer and now I'm just waiting for it to take full effect before heading back to bed

It's Sunday and I'm all alone:(

The girls won't be back until later on today and DH has just left on a call out and won't be back for a few hours so it's just me and the TV.

I managed to sleep in bed last night so the new medicine must be working and I'm not coughing so much either so maybe I'm starting to win the battle

It's now a little after 11pm and I'm trying to decide if I should make this public or keep it as a record just for me.
I guess if your reading then I decided to make it public!

I've changed the medicine I was taking for the darn cough and it's seems to be working but the big test will come in a while when I head for bed!
If I can lie down and go to sleep it's working if I cough that much that I almost choke then it's not working and I'm in the armchair again tonight
I thought I'd give this a go and bore everyone with my ramblings.
My girls are getting older and my days are filled with hobbies and very little housework (one big advantage to living in a flat)

Today started out a little oddly, I've been suffering from a virul infection for almost 2 weeks now and for the last 3 nights I've had hardly any sleep.
After spending most of the night dozing in the chair I crawled into bed at 6am as DH left for work and only crawled out again when my Mum called to say they were on their way to pick up the few things the girls forgot for the weekend away they are having
DH came home early that expected and we fought our way through the crowds in Chester for the last few things we needed to get for Christmas, I'm so glad it's done now and there's no more endless queue's for me to face.
All that's left now is to wrap the last few things and put the tree up, which we should be doing tomorrow, then I'm done and can put my feet up and enjoy the run up to the'big day'

Looking back at what I've written make it seem like I was up at the crack of dawn when in fact I'm writing at 6pm while it's pouring with rain outside!!
