I'm still alive!! Still alive. Still
The jet-lag was bad, or as the boys would say my jet lag game was strong.
But I made it through... kind of. The test will be the school meeting tonight... why oh why are all school halls so badly lit? Is it me? The lighting always puts me to sleep; kind of yellow/old neon/not strong enough. Do you know what I mean?
Oh well, my problem right?
So what's happened in the last week... well, it got bloody cold around here, that's what happened and I was not psychologically prepared for that. I had the boots and the gloves ready, not the winter brain. Still beautiful though... blue skies and red leaves everywhere, in fact it's been quite a visually spectacular Autumn (Fall... for you lot over there. Good luck for tomorrow by the way... geesh... let's hope good triumphs over evil, eh?)
This is Lilli the ferocious beast on our daily way to the park in front of our house. It's the only place she wants to go to. You try walking the other way and she plants her short little paws and looks at you like 'I ain't moving sista'. Kind of annoying. And boring. And the thing is if you sit on a bench and get a little distracted she does her thang and then walks home and you can hear her barking by the front door to be let in. She genuinely leaves you in the park by yourself. Stupid dog.
They boys went back to school after half term. (Hurray) (They're not thrilled) (the washing pile has tripled)
No 2 removed his cast and scored three goals on his hockey come back game (come back hockey game? game hockey back come?). (Would you care if I told you it rained the entire game and the back of my jeans was so wet that water trickled inside my boots???)
My parents went back to Italy. Miss them already. It's always interesting opening drawers after my mum has been for a visit... you never know what you find!
Anyway, I have a few things to show you which I'm trying to photograph but when the light is right the boys are at school and nobody can hold things up for me and when they're home it's dark. It's pants. So you'll have to bear with me.
Have another Autumn photo instead:
The maple by our front door is glowing red. I can't stop staring at it. (You could say that its red game is strong... but they you'd be overdoing it... your overdoing game would be strong... aaaarrrggghhhh.... see what kids do to you? they sneakily get in your head and take over.)
I must go and pick up Mr M and drag him, I mean, take him to the school meeting. That's what marriage is all about after all.... sharing... right?
