Busy accomplishing very little!

January is nearly over and its been a long month.
I've been very busy but I haven't completed my task!!

I've spent a lot of time emailing, researching, telephoning and waiting for replies.

I have managed to do more walking but as soon as I get home I'm checking the phone hoping I haven't missed an important call!!

For several months now I have been attempting to buy a Puppy. 
Then just over a week ago I found just what we wanted and we organised to go and visit on Saturday.

So last week we bought a bed, lead & feeding bowls. 
We ordered a dog crate.
I tidied the garden, made it puppy safe (inescapable)
I even made some beds for in the dog crate!!

The excitement was growing.

Saturday came and we travelled to see the puppy.
On opening the door I was told the little girl puppy we had 'reserved' was no longer available!
Come in have a look at them and do you want a boy instead?

So as we go into February, we are still a dog-less family!!
I do however still have the cardboard dog my Daughter gave me for Christmas!!

Breathe in the salty sea air . . . . .

 So Week 1 of the school year is complete.

The Christmas holidays seem so long ago.

I don't know who feels more shell shocked, me or the children?

First week back and we have LOTS of homework.

Another SATS workbook has appeared.

Saturday was fine and sunny, so we headed to the beach.
(Leaving the homework for another day)

Breathe in the salty sea air.

Fill your pockets with sandy shells.

And calculate how long before half term . . . . . . .

Happy New Year

So Christmas has been and gone. (It was lovely)

The decorations are coming down tomorrow, to be packed away for another year.
(Always makes me a bit sad and the house look boring)

My new year resolutions are made.
(Very similar to last year, all about losing weight, getting fitter and being more organised)

And today we had a lovely walk around Beacon Fell Country Park.

I collected a few 'things from nature' (more of that another day)

And when I got back home into the warm I got an email saying
'Happy New Year . . . . oh and have you got the drawings I asked for?'
I think that means I'm back at work!!!!!
