What the fairy said…

I get up and go go downstairs to have my first shower in this house. The one thing I don’t like is the bathroom being downstairs. As I walk down the stairs I greeted

by a lovely image of a Kingfisher shining in the sunlight of the glass panel of the front door. It doesn't flinch even at the sight of my nakedness.

After a shower and putting on some cloths, I go to the kitchen and open the blinds. Hell that grass has grown!

I find the answer and turn the light on.

and whilst I now have bacon, I don’t seem to have anything other than an egg frying pan to cook it with. Oh well I need to put that on the list of things to buy.

I have my first breakfast at my table and search the house for a data signal for my phone. now either my phone is knackered or???

What ever the issue I consider all the things to do today.

But i can hear the grass calling to me, just like my hair yesterday.

And so I get on and mow it. Besides my dad actually asked for his mower back. Can you believe that!

 IMG_20140914_101123_715

Considering it only needed one pass over this time, it 3/4 filled my bin gulp!

 IMG_20140914_104525_955

Well this mower is good and does the job well so this is the minimum I need.

 IMG_20140914_102706_385

I put the mower in the van, but keep the extension lead and head off to the parents.

their the sunflowers are doing really really well.

 IMG_20140914_121019_144

I collect my mom and we head to The Range!

 IMG_20140914_121919_048

Oh no I start spending once more.

 IMG_20140914_205225_296

And i get some lamp shades, Three for the living room and hall and stairs.

 IMG_20140914_205238_361

One for the back hallway.

 IMG_20140914_224047_830

One for the bedroom 2. Now I’ve forgotten bedroom one and the spare room! Oops but believe me, these and all the paint I brought added up to a right total.

 IMG_20140914_205215_037

I get another load of stuff from my parents and unload the van into the garage again. It is now full but I now have my bikes here. And then at 3:30pm we head off to do some food shopping. My mom wanted to go to ASDA, I wanted to go to Tesco’s in Hendesford, but what actually happened was, as we got close to Tesco's there was an Aldi. with the time near 4 o’clock it was better to go round a small stall, and I whisked around with my mom until we where asked to leave. I got the majority of the items I needed anyway and a frying pan and a wok! I took the food back to my house and then took the van back to Birmingham.

So for tonight the family were meeting at the Barns. My dad went to get my brother and I still had my mom. She wanted some money so I stopped at the Tesco Express just down the road from where I live. Next door is a big sue Ryder shop. Obviously closed at this time of night, but I peer through the window anyway. Oh my look at that. Look at that. Is it £35 quid is it? It can’t be and it looks just the right size! Oh my I’m going to have to send the parents in tomorrow! I get some eggs whilst at Tesco extra, something I forgot at Aldi.

At the Barns I get my parents to agree to go to the sue Ryder shop in the morning and check it out.

Mean while I tuck into the last good meal I might ever get to afford.

 IMG_20140914_191655_582

And enjoy it. My brother says my steak is burnt, but its not to me, its just got that lovely bit of charcoal I like on them. Never too over done and juicy in the middle.

 IMG_20140914_201248_932

I even squeeze in a pudding. Before i leave my brother presents me with a frying pan - “I understand from facebook you need one of these!”. He also gives me two decent rugs, wonderful!

 IMG_20140914_224041_957

When I get home, tired I decide to rearrange the bedroom. And this is a better compromise with the wardrobe in front of you as you walk in. I put the blue and brown bins out and settle down for the night….

 IMG_20140914_085357_577

I close all the curtains, turn off all the lights and before I go upstairs the fairy whispers, “its not all good news but don’t worry about it…….”
