Wow, I feel like I haven't been here in AGES, but I know it hasn't been THAT long. Bug got her paper yesterday that she gets to swim for her A-diploma on June first, thank God!! I was going to be very upset if she didn't make it through. Her birthday was Wednesday and she had her kid party for her school friends...she had such a great time. Tomorrow is the big party with the family and such, so we're busy with prepping for that. I baked her cake this morning and have to decorate this afternoon. I've spent the last week making stuff I can make in advance and sticking it in the freezer. (Cheesecake, truffles, cupcakes, etc) But a lot of people can't make it...at least 2 families (8 people) and possibly one other family and then there's one couple that you never know whether they will come or not, so I plan for a yes, but assume no. I hope I'm not over-estimating on food. I had more things planned, but now with more people canceling, I'm not doing everything. Anyone want to come over and help eat?
So our heater isn't fixed yet, so I'm still over here freezing. At least it's supposed to warm up a bit this week. Thursday was AWFUL! It was less than 10C (50F) outside, and it was only 15C in the house, and it was raining outside. I got out my heating pad and some blankets and snuggled up when I wasn't doing housework or school runs. Mr. Man had his school trip that day, and had a blast, but he was sooooo tired when he got home and he was WHINY!!
Lynne, I'm so sorry about the t-shirts...I'm sure it's a disappointment. But if they are short sleeved, people would have to wear their jackets closed over the front in cold weather, too, so it's really only in warm weather or inside that people would be able to see it anyway...and with just "The Heir" on the front, it might make people more curious and they'll go home and look it up to see what it is? I've noticed that when people wear t-shirts with writing on them, people are more drawn to figure out what it says and what it's about...so from an advertising standpoint, perhaps this is better? But I'm so sorry it's not how you wanted it.
Annmarie, how did it go with the mental health nurse? I hope they can help you! I'm sure you'll feel a lot better just knowing what it is and that it's treatable. Good luck!
Sarah, what do you mean it's quiet here?
Sean, I hope the no sugar is working out for you. That must be quite a change!
Ok, I'm off to do more party stuff. I still have to get groceries, make frosting, decorate the cake, make fudge, and fill favor bags.
