Tea time at dragondrop is a colourful affair with our new remote control led light bulbs.
Bampa and Denise came for tea tonight. We ate yummy chicken pie and drank rose lemonade. Jay had decorated Swiss rolls in food tech class at school which we all enjoyed for desert. Even Elsie was roused out of her, ‘I have a flower pot on my head misery’ and gave a little tail wag. Afterwards we chatted, drank tea… Read more →
Matt is a little subdued this evening as Elsie is going to be spayed at the vets tomorrow. She is a very nice dog and I am sure she will be fine but Matt is still worried. Elsie isn’t bothered, however I am sure she won’t be impressed with having to wear a flower pot on her neck until her… Read more →
Today was wear a Christmas jumper day. Sophie didn’t have one so we made her one by sewing battery operated fairy lights onto her cardigan. Sophie kept the battery pack in a little bag which also housed her inhaler. She was so pleased with her sparkley fairy cardigan I think she would have slept in it if she could have.
Asda ran out of pork mince which was unfortunate because I was making pork and ginger noodle soup for tea. Then I remembered the mincer I had inherited with the house that was residing in a dark corner of the cellar. I didn’t even know if I had all the right pieces but living dangerously I decided to buy pork… Read more →
The thermostat on our boiler died a while ago and more recently the communication box also refused to function. If we wanted heat it was a case of gingerly prodding the boost button on the communication box and hoping it didn’t fall off the wall. One cold Monday the boost button refused to work and Matt and I decided it… Read more →
Here is a picture of Matt and Annie reading stories, I am not sure though, who is putting who to bed, but they look like they are having a lovely time. The book that Annie is looking at is the classic ‘Sophie la giraffe’.
Happy birthday Daddy John from everyone here at Dragondrop. We wish you an amazing wonderful and fabulous year, just like you.
Poor little Annie-Mo is still poorly. Thank goodness we currently have a fully functioning washing machine as I must have done at least four loads of washing today. The weather was beautiful, a gorgeous blue skied, crisp winter’s day. However -1 is no temperature for drying washing so inside the house there is washing draped everywhere. Today has been the… Read more →
Annie-Mo was sick in the night, poor little lady. She has been subdued and not her usual boisterous self. Other news and it would appear that Elsie is shedding. There is dog hair on everything that that doesn’t move, cups, utensils,books,face cloths. Does she not know it’s winter. Elsie dog you should be growing a thicker coat not sporting a… Read more →
Today was a staff training day at St Aidans. It’s a little odd for a school to have a training day in the middle of term, I am not sure what the schools reasoning was, however the boys and I took full advantage of the free day to go shopping for shoes.Jay had walked through his and they now let… Read more →
Jay was talking about his ribs aching today. Apparently the pain is mainly located in his ‘intercontinental’ muscles.
Today I sold lots of my old vintage clothes to a vintage shop near by. I could have got lots more money for them if I sold each item on eBay, but I just haven’t got the desire to nurture and check my eBay site each day so i felt the vintage shop was the most lucrative option available. As… Read more →
I have been on a bit of a spending spree. I get a little carried away when I am Christmas shopping as so much money is being spent what does a little more matter? I was thinking of doing a bag haul video and it made me giggle. Normally bag hauls blogs on YouTube have clothes and make up but… Read more →
I have always liked the feeling silk and satin. As a child I had a snuggley blanket. I used to rub it’s silky edge against my nose for comfort. I love silken pj’s and as of today I now have a silky bed. As soon as I had replaced the old bed linen with my new purchase I dived on… Read more →
