Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride on a one horse open sleigh
Think I’m cracking up ……it’s not Christmas is it?:D:D:D …..Hmmmmm have been burning the midnight oil all week with admin work ….maybe that’s it ….just need a break….or maybe a career change …..or maybe a whole new life chapter …..is there anyone out there who will employ me to lol about in pyjamas Eric in hand?:D:D:D ………maybe I can get a little place overlooking the sea …..or even BUILD one and become a WOOF or Airbnb host …a desert island might be even better ….yep ….I want a bit of peace …..less pressure ….but not tooooo isolated ….cool breezes and a few waves to maintain interest would be nice:D:D:D
Or maybe I’m just going to turn into a mad old recluse like the woman Sam and myself inadvertantly disturbed last weekend ….maybe I’ll never get washed and have loads of cats ….maybe I’ll be known by the locals as something like ….like ….I don’t know what ….maybe something like ….Ole M/S Fugee Jallope …..or Sister Finnekee Joy:D:D:D
What time is it?
Am getting fed up of blathering on to Mr sleek,sophisticated, hard faced and temperamental Eric
God ….WHY am I so ridiculous:D:D:D
Anyway …early night and lie in tomorro …HURRAH!!!
Ah ….so il Semble que je suis de retour sour ….Eric functionne a nouveau ….
Ou est il?
De touts facon
Oui ….ont ete Bjorking a nouveau cette Semaine :):):):):)
There appears to be unusual space phenomenon appearing when Eric looks at the moon (See previous posts …’What IS that’ ‘BEJEEZUS’ and ‘ITS THERE AGAIN!!!?’)…I have NO idea what they are …I’ve cleaned his lens …TWICE ….there doesn’t look to be any specs of dust ……ANYWAY it’s quite reassuring to think these guys are out there isn’t it …as I say to my kids …keep your senses open, believe in magic and keep a little spirit of 3 :D:D:D
Although it’s moved and no longer looks like a potato!!! …….this is just WEIRD…..is it the same thing? ……has the space potato left us and something else has come for a peek?:D:D:D
Hmmmmm …….did you ever watch ‘The X Files?’ ….Mulder & Scully …’The truth is out there:D:D’ ….Der di di di di diiiiiiiii ( that’s the theme tune)
What IS it!!!?:D:D:D
Have just zoomed in and it’s not an orb at all ….it looks like a face …how weird is THAT!!!??…maybe it was a cloud …or maybe a very tiny speck of dust on my lens …but it was invisible to the naked eye!!!???
MY GOD!!! …..has the moon got some kind of cheeky little sidekick? ….think I’ll get out there again tonight ….look up to the skies and demand …’show thyself oh cheeky little sidekick …..I’m all for humour but not tricksters ….come forth and show thyself I say’ :D:D:D
Blimey …do you think the neighbours might have me sectioned? ….do you think a few years ago I might have been burned at the stake?:D:D:D
ANYWAY …more bloody admin to catch up on …..just not getting chance to do any in the working day 😦
God …..I’m looking at it again ….it is a bit woooooo wooooooo you have to admit:D:D:D
Can’t stop having a quick look at it …it’s making me laugh …it looks to be sticking it’s tongue out …I reckon it’s that ole ‘dark matter’ taking the piss:D:D:D I think we’re being mocked by the Universe:D:D:D
Oh ….just you wait THING I’ll be having words with YOU later:D:D:D
RIGHT back to it for an hr:(
Been burning the midnight oil working…
It’s been a balmy ( or barmy …take your pick) day
Went outside ….all quiet apart from the church clock in the distance chime 12
A cool breeze ….a beautiful sky ….stars ….a few thin clouds drifting by ….and the moon
The moon is beautiful tonight …surrounded by a halo ….how calming it is gazing at the moon ….if it could see …how much has it seen…..how much more WILL it see as it gazes down with its wise old face
I popped in to get Eric ….to capture it and keep it …sadly Eric with all his sleek beauty has not captured the full sublime spectacle of the sky as is tonight
BUT ….WHAT the hell is that dot to the right?:D:D:D …..I’ve checked the lens is clean and I cannot see that orb as I am actually looking ….I can’t see it with the naked eye ….could it be a cosmic ray?
Need to go to bed 🙂
Here is this weeks post from Rahul …..very pertinent for the way I’m feeling just now …with our kids we are a HUGE part of their journey in the early part of their lives …it’s a blessing, honour, loads of fun and damned hard work ….then they start to excersise those ‘independence’ muscles:D:D:D ….at this stage it feels like being an ‘Angler’ ….trying to master the art of knowing when to give them some slack or reeeeel it back in ……eventually they let you know when it’s time to put the line down …free to swim …maybe make some mistakes …learn ….grow ….and hopefully keep swimming on back to touch base every now and then if/when they need 🙂
Once we got the wet pants dry ….breakfast stuff cleared ….laundry to Mohammed’s ….and dropped Matt to meet his girlfriend ….Sam and I went on a little roadtrip ….took him over to a little place I know on the Pennines between Leeds and Manchester …it’s a LONG time since I’ve been to that particular place ….it seems to have become very twee since I was last there ..less earthy …. less rugged …my guess is it’s Inhabitants are mostly made up of commuters …… you know …business folk who like to ‘live’ out in the country but tend to stay in hotels in the city mon to fri …..it’s a funny carry on isn’t it? ….where’s the ‘soul’?
Even Sam noticed it ……he was laughing at how miserable everyone looked ….AND LIVING IN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE!!!? He also noticed how ‘white’ it was. I explained to him I didn’t know why …I didn’t remember it as such …but maybe it was ….we therefore began playing a game of ‘spot the minority’ …..yes ….yes ….I know:D:D:D …..and yes ….there WERE one or two when you looked closely which was very reassuring:D:D:D
Sam said when he gets back to school if Mr O’Connor asks them to do that excersise wherby they write what they have done in the holidays he will add ….’and the highlight was going on a mini road trip with my Mum…where we got lost in the wilderness ….trapped at a remote farm where a strange old lady came out eyeing us suspiciously ( yep …both true ….kept saying …ooooh don’t remember this little lane let’s see what’s up here) …and we ended up playing spot the minority’:D:D:D
He’s starting to fine tune his sarcasm
He’s having a growth spurt too ….nearly as tall as me now ….well no …a little ways to go yet:D:D:D….his voice is breaking tho…and he’s broken out in teenage spots …I’ve been lucky really ….I KNOW it tends to happen within the first year of high school …and we’ve got to the end of that now ….he’s growing up ….he’s becoming ‘Slick’ ……truth be known I would like him to remain cute little wild haired Sam without a care in the world …but that’s both selfish on my part and unrealistic:D:D:D
Hmmmmm yep ….we guide them thro as best we can then off they go …and that’s the natural order of things
For today he was happy to spend some time with me …1 to 1 …. I know these days are numbered …..he’s starting to get ‘shy’ with photo’s too like Matt did ……so I sneaked a couple in :D:D 😀
Sunday night again …hmmmmm you wouldn’t think these pics were taken in summer ….look more like autumn
‘Meeeeerm!!!’ shout from Sam in the bathroom upstairs
‘You know how I was just singing and dancing?’
‘I’ve dropped my pants in the sink’
‘Awwww GOD Sam …it’s laundry day I don’t know if you have anymore’
‘Will you get me the hairdryer?’
