Unfortunately one of my ProMarker Candy prizes hasn't been claimed - the deadline was 12 noon today. So I have used random.org to pick another winner of the 4th prize of 12 promarkers and that is.....
If this is still unclaimed by 12 noon on Monday it will be redrawn again.
So, moving on - I've had a hellish day so far. The alarm went off at 7am and I thought I'd hit the snooze button and get another 9 minutes in bed, but oh no.... Graham came home yesterday and didn't lock the kitchen door before he came to bed, so Willow had got up - got Pepsi and decided to take her through to our room!!
So I did what I usually do, threw on some clothes, went to the kitchen to switch on my laptop and the kettle, put on Pepsi's lead and took her out.
I hadn't even poured my cup of tea and Faith was up, and her and Willow instantly started arguing and fighting, and continued to escalate through breakfast and getting them dressed. Then halfway through getting Faith dressed, Pepsi decided to throw up over the settee and the floor right beside me - argh!!!
So, got them all sorted out, in the car - dropped Scott and Willow at school - drove round to the playgroup and waited in the car til it opened. One of the other school mums came over for a chat and Faith got herself out of her carseat and started turning the volume of the stereo up as far as it would go, turning on the heater and the hazard lights, the indicators etc - well, you get the picture.
By this time it was opening time at playgroup, and she decided she didn't want to go. So I had to carry her, kicking and screaming - which made me late for Scott's review meeting at school at 9.30am
Thankfully though that went well and we are all singing from the same hymn sheet. He needs more assistance with his organisational skills but he's more or less happy and coming on well with all the other stuff he struggles with. I really can't praise the staff at Scott's school enough - they are very accommodating and very supportive of kids with additional needs and the head teacher is an absolute star, she really puts me at ease.
So after that it was back home, take Pepsi out again and got stuck into sorting out what xmas presents I have bought. So its all now on Excel and I have a better idea now of what I still have to get.
The xmas cards are another story and I'm in complete denial. Extended family ones are going to be easy enough as we got photographs taken of the 3 kids together, so I just need to crop and assemble them which shouldn't take long. And I have an order for 3 personalised ones to do.
So Santa, can I please ask for an early xmas present - can we get more hours in the day please? 24 just isn't enough!!
But I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, Judy is doing a Winter Sing Song/Gorjuss class at Simply Create tomorrow afternoon and I have a place. Can't wait to see what we're doing - Judy is a class act.
