Nearly ready

Touch Wood, I think we're all sorted.

Scott's school bag is all packed - just need to throw an apple in it in the morning. His uniform is all hung up ready to put on, even remembered to write his name in everything, from his pencil case to his shirt.

Bought all the last minute things at Asda, new jackets, white socks, shorts and t-shirt for Willow. I also got this cute little cat watch for Willow as she's been showing an interest in learning to tell the time.

Have just scalped Scott - we forgot to take him to the barber today, so I had to take the clippers to him myself and the biggest attachment we could find was a #3, so its pretty short lol He's in the bath now.

Am aiming to get them in bed for the back of 8. Then I'm going to have a bash at making a Clootie Dumpling - am sure the local quines will know what that is - but I bet the rest of you don't, I'll maybe tell you tomorrow lol

Never made dumpling it's nae my thing, but Errols mam makes it and they all rave about it.
Good luck with the school run.
