Today I had a treat – Mr GG is still ill (that’s not the treat) but felt he could manage enough for No1 Son and I to go out for lunch together 🙂 It’s lovely to have the opportunity to spend some alone time with one of my boys. We went into town together to buy a present for No1 Son’s best friend who is starting a new school on Monday (sob) and then lunched together in McDonalds. We also nipped in Heavenly Beads … my favourite shop … to buy some fixings for a couple of pieces of jewellery I have underway – I’m proud to say that I only bought what I needed and wasn’t tempted by the beautiful beads on offer! For once!
While in town we also took the opportunity to price a new Wii. On Hogmanay our Wii packed up and on enquiring whether it could be fixed were soundly told it was “goosed”! This is a disaster especially as No1 Son had saved his pocket money and birthday money to buy the Skylanders Giants game … he’s not even had it one month yet! A new Wii was definitely not something we factored into buying in January and I, for one, could live without it but … ah well … it’s hard to explain!
Mr GG is still not well – he sounds incredibly ropey and has an appointment with the doctor tomorrow so he must be feeling very bad! I hope he’s feeling better soon – the past month has been very unhealthy for our family!
