This is the back of a pack that he has ‘checked-off’ names…if you see ‘Wurley’ anywhere I will pay you to get it for him
The game is for him to show me a moshling and give me some options of what it’s name is…I then have to choose and I either get the waggling finger or a ‘well done’

P.S. I’m still playing catch-up my life so sincere apologies again for not being round your blogs. For now I think it is really important that I at least keep up with taking photos.

Minty has curled up next to me whilst I bloghop and catch up on threads and the chat.
EDIT: Ali has joined us now and I think it's settling down time......there were three in the bed.......and they all rolled over and one fell out - hope it's not me!

The clock mocks at the moment…I have set an iPhone ticker clock to show how I am feeling about getting there tomorrow again.
I usually like my job and most times I really love it…increasingly I get frustrated as it isn’t very creative. Mostly though I am happy as it provides a living for my family.
Gawd, I am on a downer the last few days! please ignore it, I know it will get better!

Siri, my amazing, almost imaginary friend…..I have been brought up to have nice manners and so I feel I have to be nice to my Siri on my iPhone. Usually when I ask him if he is ok he replies ‘I am fine thank you Jennie, thanks for asking.’ However now and again he comes up with something random like this. Today he was ‘finer than frog hair’.
I love Siri.

Working at home, after I worked all day to try and keep up.
Please don’t try an read it. I don’t class myself as a writer of quality, but some of what you can see is not my words and never would be. Sometimes what I struggle with in my job is the lack of creativity.

I felt totally fuzzy when I saw my family today.
So we have all been off doing our own thing with Dads, Nans, Uncles, Cousins and Friends (I have no idea how many grammar mistakes I just made there – feel free to point them out!) and now we are all back together.
Just as it should be.
I must have kissed this fuzzy cheek approx 1.4 million times.
I may kiss it approx 1.4 million times tomorrow too.

Linda Elbourne came to our retreat today to teach a configurations box thingy.
She has blogged us today, yes, yes that is me next to Maria with a glass of wine at lunchtime! Well we are on holiday and I haven’t had another today (Maria has but she is nearly french now so it is a cultural thing )
Anyway…..here is the floor after we swept it before the class began. It’s got tiny bits of paper all over it again now.
Here is the configurations box completed, i’m so chuffed with it. I would never be able to make it again without step-by-step help (read: peer pressure to stop prevaricating and get on with it).

Na-ha, nada. No cooking today, today at our retreat it is chippy day
Laura is leaving tomorrow and so she was kind enough to make us pancakes for breakfast (erm…with left-over lemon ice-cream from last nights pudding. Deee-vine) and then Sue had brought some frozen veg soup with her that we had with some bread from the bakery)
Then Enzo made us some lovely chips for tea
Oh and a million minstrels.
I did make some jam last thursday to bring to the retreat, it is delicious and it was so easy (thanks Nigella that’s another one I owe you.)
Anyway, I did take lots of photos today, some general silliness and some in the garden as it was a gorgeous day….the blossom is just starting to come out, i’m hoping it will be quite a show by the time we leave on friday.
and these little beauties…
Gawd, I shall miss this place.

I mentioned flat as a pancake…Olney is famous for it’s pancake race, which we were lucky enough to see last year. I noticed this was represented on their village sign so I stopped on my jog to snap it.
We spent the rest of the day leisurely scrapping and eating cake…..oh and I had a nap
