Its been a funny start to the day today, My nephew and his girlfriend have gone to Leeds fest today and so I was woken up at 20 to 5 by footsteps tramping downstairs and the porch door being unlocked opened shut locked unlocked opened shut locked (must have forgotten something first time) and then the front door unlocked open shut locked n footsteps down the front path, for two slim people they dont half sound like elephants going down the path. As I was awake I thought I'd pop to the loo and say morning to hubby who was up getting ready for work.
On my way back to bed I thought I'd look out the window see if they'd been picked up yet by Matts friends, it looked like they'd just arrived as Matt and Abi and a couple of his friends were loading their tent and bag into the boot. I also noticed a lad stood across the road facing the field peeing against the wall CLASSY eh. I mean it wasn't as if another pair of elephant feet coming inside and another round of unlocking locking the doors would have disturbed me after matts performance five minutes earlier.
I was hoping that our next door neighbour who is a policeman hadn't seen Matts friend peeing across the road as urinating outside is illegal isn't it, but I didn't see him running out with handcuffs and his truncheon (ooh er his police issue one I mean lol) A few minutes later they were all squashed in the car and doing a three point turn in the middle of the road before peeling off down the road again with a bit of a screech.
Ten minutes after that hubby left for work and I snuggled down in bed with the intention of going back to sleep but I must have been awake too long because for an hour I just lay there with my mind going from one thing to another. Why did it always have to rain when events were out doors. Did I need to wash hubby some more work trousers today or were there some in ironing basket. Shall I bake him a cake for his birthday tomorrow or buy one. How will my nephews first day at senior school go today? What excercise can I do that will make me super fit but not take much effort?
On and on I went untill after 6, I thought of getting up but I hadnt gone to bed while half twelve and so far I'd only had about 4 hours sleep. With a day of ironing and an evening visit to my in laws I thought it best to stay put and just try a little longer to drop off. Luckily I must have dropped off becasue the next thing I knew it was after 9.
So now here I am procrastinating and looking guiltily and with dread at the pile of ironing I brought down with me this morning which is only about half what I have to do today but as much as I could carry in one go.The rest I'll have to bring down later when I've worked my way down what I have here so far.
So bye for now its a ironing I go.
