My Angel Wings Were Bruised And Restrained

Monday, 17 October 2011
It could have been an ordinary day
With school runs and washing
But there were a few things that made today unique

* On the way to school, this afternoon, I saw Father’s Christmas incognito.
   He was wearing a 2 piece grey tracksuit and waiting at the bus stop.
   Very good disguise Santa but you didn’t fool me!!

*  I finished typing up the journaling (see yesterday’s post)
    which was good because it also meant I could finish this page

*  I made a batch of sausage rolls
    chicken mince, carrot, bbq sauce and cheese
    easy sausage rolls
    might have the cheese ratio a little off still
    but they are still a winner!

*  I fixed the car radio well I didn’t really fix it, it fixed itself… somehow!
    Not long after we bought the car, 4+ years ago, Dave broke the radio well he didn’t really break it, it just stopped working… somehow!
    So we have been radio-less since then
    Today I was looking at it, as I drove home from school this morning,  and I thought the LCD screen looked different
    so I pushed the on button and WOW it worked!!
    Told the girls I fixed it
    When Dave got home, from work, the girls bragged that I had fixed it will let them think I did for a while!

*  Jessica finished a little project she started yesterday
    I was impressed that 1. she started it and 2. finished it so quickly
    She had a kit but all the pieces weren’t in it so she cut the bits that were missing
    She did it all by herself and didn’t ask for help, other than rethreading the needle a couple of times
