Home again

So I’m finally home in my own house! My sis dropped me off. She always does that for me if she is available. I am so grateful to her for doing that for me.
I had to turn my heat on. Its freezing! It says its 8 degrees C here. Its cold though there is a biting wind out there!
I’ve just fed the dog. He had great fun with the kids. They were playing fetch with him, despite my protests, that he’d break his leg skidding along the wooden floors. He didnt, thank god. He enjoyed the game. He’s exhausted now hahaha.
I’m enjoying a coffee now. Im also watching a little tv. Well I am not really watching it, its just on in the background.
No plans for the rest of today. May read later on. Need to finish a book and then see what I’ll start on next. I never did finish my maggie hartley book sold to be a wife. So need to try to finish up that one.
Hope your all having a fantastic sunday!

Before I get into this post, if anyone wants to connect with me on facebook then feel free to add me

Im very chillaxed tonight. Not much going on at all. I am having a nice quiet night in. Just browsing on fb. I spent some time deleting old accounts. I kept my carol anne one, and this one I jus posted, but I had other old ones, that I needed to delete, so as not to confuse people. If you don’t have me listed on that account, add me? I’d love to connect with all of you.

Have spent a lovely hour or two chatting with friends. And just browsing and enjoying a coffee, now am going to go read for a while.

Wound up!

I am wired. I want to calm down but I cant.
I feel like a wound up top! Am so wound up!
Trying to settle down now, watching some tv. The kids watched a show. Now I am just going to read to try and settle down.
Unfortunately its not happening! I am agitated! Feeling anci and very, very squirrely!
Nitro is sound asleep in bed. The heat knocked him out! I still have my heating on since it was so cold earlier!
I was on the phone to my friend Rose for an hour. We had a good chat. She was in a good mood! I enjoyed our chat!
I think I will be awake for the night now. I dont imagine I will get any sleep. I feel too wired. Too agitated. Too wound up!
Oh well. Maybe I’ll start a new book. And maybe I will read some emails or blog posts.
Who knows!

#SoCs-mean, mean!

This week, LIndas prompt for socs is mean!

Tonight the kids are telling me I am mean! The littles, in our system, that is!

Why am I mean?

Because I wont let them eat junk food! Chocolate, crisps, cake, nooo, not having that!

What I want, and what they want, are totally different!

They want to binge on junk food because they miss Eileen and, you know, eating chocolate and crisps will make them feel good! Not happening!

I miss Eileen too but…there are better ways to cope!

Eating junk food will just lead to binging, I know it!

So, we will distract from the pain of Eileen being gone in other ways, like, for example, watching some X factor on tv, the kids love that show! Or I will maybe read my book later this evening and try to finish it! Its an anthology of true crime stories! So pretty intense, pretty dark! But I’m almost through reading it! I have an hour and 40 mins left to read on it!

Im now drinking a cuppa! Tea makes everything better, as Emily always says!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 10/18

I started a new book

So I started a new book this morning. Its called sold to be a wife, and is by maggie hartley. Maggie hartley is a UK foster parent. She writes about her foster kids. I’ve read 3 chapters of the book so far and I really like it. I think its going to be a really great read. I have been up since 7:30. Nitro woke me up. He wanted to go out. Its freezing here today. I think it was minus 2 last night. I actually slept really good last night. I went to bed quite early, at like 9:30. I took my night meds and went to bed and slept really well. I woke up at around 1:30 and stayed up for half an hour or so then went right back to bed. I will probably read most of the book today. Its a six hour book so I can probably finish it in one day.
