Tenantcy handed in

Just handed in my tenantcy for the house I am in. It officially ends on the 13th of September. As I left the house it was raining but that real fine stuff. Got half way down my road and the heavens opened up! Needless to say I got very wet and as soon as I walked back into the house the sun came out and we now have partial blue skies!
I am running about like a headless chicken as I don't know where to start on the house first or what to do! But I do know I need to get to Argus and buy some packing boxes.........bloody ridiculous price for them though, but what can you do when you need them?
Hope everyone is having a nice day!

Soooo excited!

Me and my first catch ever lol.

Well as some of you may know, last month we bid on a house. I got shortlisted and because so much time went by, I thought we didn't get the house. Wellllllllllllllllllllllll, we got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The lady rang me about 4pm today and was talking to me about this house and I said 'what you on about love?' and she said 'Oh, don't you know? We allocated the house to you.'. To cut a long story short, she went on holiday two weeks ago and her admin staff should of rung me to let me know about the house and didnt. So, Wednesday I go and sign the tenancy and Monday, the house is ours! Talk about short bloody notice to pack everything and get it moved lol! But I am just sooooooooooooooooooo happy!

On a different note, we went fishing for a couple of hours this evening. It was my first time ever. I have to say I really enjoyed it. Out of the four of us, I was the first one to catch a fish. It was only a tiddler, in fact, I only caught tiddlers, but who cares, I enjoyed it . I handled the maggots ok in the end. I just went for it and plunged my hand in the tub lol.

I will definitely be going again. I found it so tranquil and relaxing. The fish is a Roach. I had two fall into my cleavage, the slippery little buggers lol.

Quiet Sunday

Had a quiet evening with the twins and Him Indoors. We watched 'Little Man' DVD starring the Wayans Bros, very funny. Instead of popcorn we had two tubs of Ben and Jerrys between us seeing its half price at the moment lol.

I just brought my Rod Licence online and need to go into town in the morning to get my local fishing club licence, and then hopefully my first fishing trip tomorrow evening for a few hours.

Weekend and Fishing

It's been a really nice weekend. Yesterday we went into town for the day and did some shopping and in the evening we went to our friends, Kieron and Nessie's BBQ. The weather was glorious and the food excellent, especially the Chicken Green Tai burgers that Kieron made! And Nessie's veggie sausage rolls were really tasty too!

My sister and her partner Dave, are keen coarse anglers and have talked us into going with them. Him Indoors used to fish years ago and the thought of going again appeals to him. So, he had some back pay that he got and so we went and bought rods etc yesterday. I'm not sure wether I will take to fishing.........just the thought of maggots, let alone handling the little buggers, makes me feel yucky lol. I'm glad its coarse fishing as you just throw the fish back and dont kill them or anything. Yes, I know there are debates that hooks are painful to fish and its a divided debate as some say they are painful and some say they are not. We have bought stuff that is more humane and recommended by the Angling Association. I am looking foward to it and going to the fishing area thats by a Nature Reserve in Rye. Oh, and wouldn't it be just fabulous if I caught a bigger fish than Him Indoors the first time I went lol. I will be taking the camera with me just incase lol!

We love the NHS

Hmm, read this article on The Mail Online:


I just think it's a bloody cheek that certain American elements see fit to run down our NHS. Rather rich coming from a country who put profits before health. The only reason they are knocking Obama's reforms is because if it goes ahead, they wont be able to cash in so much on the sick and make such huge profits!

Quote from the Daily Mail:

The Government is loath to intervene directly in the US debate but constant attacks on the NHS, together with inaccurate claims about rationing, have prompted unease.

The British Embassy in Washington is trying to counter inaccuracies amid a string of television adverts claiming that the NHS puts an "Orwellian" financial cap on the value of life and allows the elderly to die untreated.

Gordon Brown should get some huge big dangly balls for once and intervene in the US debate to stop these great big bully boys once and for all. But he won't because we all know he would rather arse lick than do the right thing!

Peaceful Sunday

Been a nice peaceful Sunday. I spent this afternoon finishing off my first Hardanger piece. The cutting was easier than I thought lol.


I didnt fancy a traditional roast today so I put some chicken pieces in a dish, threw on some sliced onions, red peppers and tomatoes, put lots of crushed garlic all over and some herbs and olive oil and served it with new potatoes and mixed veggies. It was really tasty and the twins loved it too.

Not sure what i am going to do for the rest of the evening. Probably watch some tv.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

MIA again lol

I am fully recovered now from my operation and I didnt realise just how long ago it was since I last blogged.............naughty me lol.
Things have been really hectic what with two family reunions and us trying to move home. We rent from a housing association and we have recently bidded on a property. I got a letter to say that the bid was successful so I now have to wait and see whether we actually got the house or not. I'm not holding my breath but you just never know. We are downsizing from a three bedroomed to a 2 bedroomed property, so I have been spending hours trying to get rid of stuff we dont want or need. I have come to the conclusion that we are hoarders. We took over 30 carrier bags of clothes to the Tesco Supermarket recycling bins for Scope. I am having to be so ruthless. I said to Him Indoors, if something hasnt been used within a year, then it has to go..............easier said then done I can asure you! Hopefully we will hear something over the following week.
