1. Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant, have a little wine,
some good food and companionship. he goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.
2. We also sleep in separate beds.
Hiss is in Sydney and mine is in Melbourne.
3. I take my wife everywhere, but he keeps finding her way back.
4. I asked my husband where he wanted to go for our anniversary.
"Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" he said.
So I suggested the kitchen.
5. We always hold hands. If I let go, he shops.
6. he has an electric blender, electric toaster and electric bread maker
Then he said, "There are too many gadgets and no place to sit down!".
So I bought him an electric chair.
7. Remember.... Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.
Statistically, 100% of all divorces started with marriage.
8. I married Mr Right. I just didn't know his first name was Always.
9. I haven't spoken to my husbandfor 18 months. I don't like to interrupt him.

The last fight was my fault. My husband asked, "What's on the TV?"....
I said, "Dust!"

i found this and changed all the she's for he's, hers for his and wife to husband.......but it still makes sence!!!!!!! i think

Some things to ponder

1. The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.
2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.
4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.
6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?
7. Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.
8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?
9. Scratch a dog and you'll find a permanent job.
10. No one has more driving ambition than the boy who wants to buy a car.
11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.
12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 AM. It could be a right number.
13. Think about this..., No one ever says "It's only a game." when his team is winning.
14. I've reached the age where the happy hour is a nap.
15. Be careful reading the fine print. There's no way you're going to like it.
16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
17. Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of OLD LADIES running around with tattoos? (And RAP music will be the Golden Oldies!)
18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.
19. After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.

hope you are all well

just wanted to share these with you all. they are the latest pictures of my baby's....charlies should be here too soon. Isnt my boy handsome!! Is a lovely pic of Bethany too!

Bethany is doing well. although she is very bored.

I am doing better although am soooo tired, but am having difficulties sleeping!!

Am undecided as to when Bethany should go back to school, they said 2 weeks at the hospital, which is tuesday next week. will probably send her on wednesday so she only has a short week.

Have now lost 8lb's at weightwatchers, so its all going slowly, been told thats better than loosing it quickly!!

me and shane have decided we might go to new york for a 4 night holiday after the wedding, depending on if we can save up the money and get the kids looked after. Have been looking at prices....wow didnt think they would be that expensive. do you fancy a lodger Joyce, Lisa Jo and Jackie lol

Havent really got much to tell you because i havent done much lol.

love to you all and take care

The above link will make you all laugh your socks off!!!!!  Best Friends


just to let you all know Bethany had her surgery as planned and everything went really well, she was a star! no tears (unlike me i cried for us both lol) and no tempers, just a very well behaved, relaxed little girl who loved all the attention!

She is pain free and eating as much as she would normally, infact if you didnt know you wouldnt even be able to tell she had an operation on tuesday. she vomited a couple of times last night which paniced me, but was ok, think it was just the after effects of the op.

I am on the mend now. When i woke on Tuesday morning i really felt bad still, so had decided i wouldnt go and that i would ask my mum if she would be ok on her own......think again! I got a call from dad at 8am to say mum couldnt come as she was really ill and couldnt move. so I pulled myself together, took a massive amount of paracetamol and ibuprofen and off we went. Shanes mum came with me which i was thankful for. Managed to get through the day (dont know how) on cola and coffee. When we woke on wednesday morning i was feeling so bad again i nearly passed out, so the nurses looked after Bethany while i sat outside on a bench at 7am in the morning in my nightie....i must of looked a sight! i then had a little cough and brought loads of blood up. decided there and then that i had better go to the dr's asap.

We were discharged really quick when i told them i was unwell and were home by 9:30. went to the dr and guess what i have......BLOODY TONSILLITIS! I have come out in sympathy with my daughter. I used to get a bad throat maybe once a year, but can never remember it being as bad as this, maybe its worse when you are an adult. Feel 75% better now!

Charlie was also sent home from school tuesday feeling ill with a temperature, he is better tonight. it never rains here it pours!

Mum is still feeling really bad. I am so worried about her, I wish she would visit the doctor.

I have to tell you that Shane has been so very good to all of us this week, my house has been like a hospital ward lol. both settee's with ill people wrapped up on them and even the floor was used for a bed at one point this week when i couldnt move! i have realised just how lucky I am to have him, and his mum was so good to me on tuesday.

Anyway it is getting late and i still have 4 nights of no sleep to catch up on so i will say goodnight to you all.

Ok tomorrow is the day Bethany has her surgery. just on cue I get the flu would you believe.

wont be an entry for a bit as i will be staying at the hospital with my girl and then will be looking after her at home.

Please everyone say a prayer for me and my girl. for me to be well enough for tomorrow and for Bethany ot be ok.

this is a massive prayer request, I know you will all help.

I have been crying for the last 2 hours as i seem to be getting worse not better.

Well I am off to lay on the sofa again.

Love you all so very much

Please think of us.

I am so scared.

can you hear me?

Hello all.

I have lost my voice

sounding like a little mouse at the moment

squeek squeek

When i talk my voice feels really strained

we found the shoes!!

he threw one on the roof of the school today.....bloody idiot....charlie i mean. They were only brought in September and cost £35. School wont go on the roof for me because of health and safety reasons, so somehow I have got to get a ladder to school tomorrow and get the shoe back as i cannot and will not buy another pair for him. He really is being a pain in the arse at the moment, I wish i could understand what was going on in his little head.

Thought I had better tell you that Bethanys operation isnt tomorrow now but on tuesdsay 7th November, next tuesday. couldnt remember if I had told you all or not!

She is going to be kept in overnight for definate, due to the fact that the earliest she will have it done is 1:30pm (if she is first on the list), and because she has a heart condition. I havent ever really mentioned this before as it doesnt cause any bother, so I tend to not think about it! She has a hole, which has been closing up, and a slight mitral regurgitation, sorry for the spelling. Basically oxygenated blood flows back on to the unoxygenated blood, but this also doesnt cause any problems. She saw the specialists from Guys hospital last year, they were so impressed with her heart that they dont want to see her now until 2010. She will have to have a massive dose of antibiotics during and after surgery to prevent any infection to her heart as this could be fatal if the hole gets infected.

I have got her loads of new stuff to take in.....a cd player, big headphones (she doesnt like the ones that go into the ear), 2 pairs of pyjamas, slippers, a nice warm pink blanket for her bed, and a couple of sticker books.

We have a very busy weekend, which i'm pleased about, as hopefully it will take my mind off the operation. I feel so bad about her having it done. she has had 7 op's before, but they never upset me as much as this one is. i think this is because there might be blood this time. the others were 2 for a squint, 3 on her ears for grommets, 1 on her finger and one to have teeth out.

I also keep having people tell me how terrible the tonsil operation is if you are not a young child.

I hope you are all ok and please wrap up warm!! It was 17 degree's in the car yesterday and only 4 this morning, so it looks like winter could at last be here!!

Love you all to bits
