Hey guys,

Sorry havent been on in a few days. This weekend went alot better than last weekend. We now havbe a fixed boiler, a clear back yard, and a curtain pole hung in mum's room. He would have hung mine, but we've lost one of the brackets for it.

Ivy the job sounds great, only thing is i'm not sure i'd be able to cope with that much work. It sounds alot! But its the kind of thing i would look for if i was able to.

Im keeping my fingers crossed for my mate, who is waiting to hear back from an interview. Its a live in job with sole charge of a dressage yard. Its a FABULOUS yard and the rider is at international level. She goes off to all the best shows. My mate has the opportunity to go with her.

My arm is itching like hell but its alot less swollen noe. I have taken off the bandage and leaving it to the air. I think i'll leave the steri strips on for another day or so.

Sunday TLC's

* have a gorgeous hot bubble bath (possilby with candles and i might even get out my new oil burner)
* play with kittens
* nap abit?
