And it’s the last day of June. I have 55 weeks left in which to become a mother. Does it sound like a long time to you? I started this blog 49 weeks ago, so in three weeks’ time, when I’m 55, I’ll be on the Final Countdown.
I made my Pageflakes page last night – it is great! Am really looking forward to using it.
Cleaned the house this morning, made lunch and then we went shopping. I was really lucky – have you seen those jute bags in Tesco with ladybirds on them? Well I’ve been looking for one for ages; an assistant told me last month that they do still get them in, but they’re snapped up almost immediately. Well, we’d gone through the checkout and finished loading up when I noticed, under one of the chairs by the windows, one of the bags! It was just lying there with a handle broken, at least not the handle but the stitches had broken so it was not attached on one side, and with no price tag on it (though I think that they’re only 69p or something like that). I couldn’t believe my luck. I took it to the Customer Service desk, and asked whether I could have it. They said yes, I could have it for nothing!! Hooray! So I just have to sew it back on and I’ll have me ladybird bag!
A fatalist would say that the reason why I was never able to buy one like everyone else all the time I was looking for one was because this bag needed me to rescue it and give it a life, rather than being thrown away.
I’ve had to go back in to work to be part of a team that was called in to deal with an incident, and am now home again. The only thing is that about half an hour ago I had a black coffee to keep me going, so now I’m wide awake; still that’s no bad thing as I’m now about to check our Archaeology Group account, as the front screen tells me that there are 5 new e-mails in it.
