Some of the world’s greatest feats
were accomplished by people not smart
enought to know they were impossible.
Busy week that was. So what have I done.
We popped to the reclaims wood yard and got some more wood to build up the veggie patch, (only £15 for three 8ft by 4in by 6in pieces), and built up the veggie patch. Just need to build up the soil now.
Cleaned windows, made lemon and grapefruit marmalade, and general messed about.
A headline in the Sainsbury’s magazine caught my eye, ‘I made a £100 selling my old clothes on eBay, I don’t know about you but I wear my clothes until they fall apart, haha. I read it anyway, and yes she did, but all the clothes were designer labels, not a Matalan label in sight.
On the news
Divorced couples will now have to pay to use the C.S.A, that’s had the single parents groups up in arms. Well someone has to pay for it, and in these days of cutting back it only seems fair that people using the service should pay something towards it, and it’s only fair that both parties involved pay. It really makes me mad that the parent who keeps the children get’s all the help, people seem to forget that very often the person who does not have the children in their care still have to live and very often have to set up a new home from scratch.
Then childcare is becoming to expensive for parents, so some are deciding to stay at home , I can’t help but think this can only be a good thing. I am a strong believer in a child being brought up by a parent not a nursery/playgroup/nanny/minder, and yes I know it’s hard. I have been there, done that and got the tee-shirt, but it’s not forever.
We watched what we think is the last of number 1’s free trail DVDs last weekend
Coraline, very dark and I think a little on the scary side for little ones, children having their eye’s replaced by buttons then having the life sucked out of them. The stuff of nightmares.
The last one was Waltz with Bashir, a very powerful and moving animated/documentary about Ari who was a young soldier in the Israeli Army during the Lebanon War, (early 80s). It’s one of those stay with you for ever movies.
Things I am enjoying on TV at the moment…
