Snippets of my almost dull day

I can't say a great deal of things happened today except Ellie went back to school (well, for 2 hours) to revise for her GCSE English exam, which she will sit in the morning. I spent an age with her to try and encourage her to expand on her written statements where she stunned me with a list of very cool adjectives used in the right place.

I pottered about the almost empty house (ahem, the pooch was my company) and realised that 2012 had a routine to get used to, in this house. So far 2012 hasn't seen a great deal of action in our scrawny little 3 bed semi detached, so I whipped out my "to do" list to kick its little butt.

I also road tested a secret new steel rule die today which added a glimmer of excitedness in this January beaten bod. Hope I can share that soon, I've not seen anything like it. My craft fix, however, was short lived as it was time to pick up Belles from School and go food shopping. I HATE FOOD SHOPPING. Its boring. Although I was happy to check out the gluten free section of the store for some wheat free goodies PLUS the chockies and bickies were all reduced to ridiculously cheap prices too. Although Mark and Ellie will benefit from those more.

Ugh, I've just read this blog post back. Wow. Such a thrilling read. I'll compensate you with this image here taken from Nicole Samuels blog. How magnificent are those trees?

Gotta go, the amazing rush of life is almost too fantastic to bear ;)

Good luck to Elle for her English exam today, DS also sitting this! Currently battling with revision for the other 3 exams due in January and a French CA. I'm sure GCSE's will be the en of me.

Good luck, Ellie!

Loving those trees but can't fathom out how to make them :(

I think you need something amazing-super-fantastic booked into your diary so you have something to look forward to (and not too far ahead!) - I know I do, but haven't worked out what it is yet!!

But if everyday was exciting, would we then be able to appreciate it?
