O'Hallows Eve

Wow I can't believe it's Halloween already. Seems like yesterday school was starting. Where does time go? As usual I leave everything to the last minute I still need to buy some candy and a pumpkin. Guess Jeremy and I will be carving the pumpkin out just before we go Trick or Treating. Nice part is I live in a great neighbourhood. A lot of houses really decorated for Halloween. Bill's still in New Zealand so not sure how much candy I'll be giving out, but that's ok.

I was chatting with a friend from California as he found out that he had just lots a court case. Crazy court system, but that's another post for another time. So as he's typing with me he says huh earthquake. I go what now? He's like yup feels like a big one a 6. So turns out after I Google it that they did have an earthquake that was a 5.6. That's kinda nuts that they are so calm about those things down there.

So How Intuitive Are You?

You Are 84% Intuitive

Your intuition is so spot on it's scary!
You can learn a lot about people and situations, simply by listening to your gut.
And you've even wondered if you can predict the future at times.
Just be sure not to always listen to your intuition... someday it could be wrong!

I'll Take Harry Potter for $100 Alex

So after weeks of planning and thinking Jeremy decided he wanted to be Harry Potter for Halloween. Now on his part I think that's a pretty creative decision as there are loads of totally store bought costumes Spiderman, Batman, Captain Jack Sparrow in abundance, but not many Harry Potter Robes. So yeah I did buy the robe. If they were out of robes I was prepared to make a cape like thing so does that Jeremy needed new pants anyways so now he has black ones that go with the One of the coolest things I found were the glasses he's going to wear dollar store pick of that I could remove the lenses out of. He looks great in the robes with the glasses. Or at least I think so. Jeremy has a Halloween party today at Boys and Girls club so we needed to get the costume this week.
Have I mentioned that I miss my camera :(. I also picked up a pumpkin carving kit at the dollar store that came with 4 patterns to pick from. So I thought that was worth it.

Plugging away on the model. Will work more on it tonight too, and then on the RR this weekend.

How Cheap Are You?

Ok how cheap are you? Or is it better to say frugal? Or environmentally friendly? I figure I fall into all. Here's some stuff that I do.

~ Always use the end pieces in a loaf of bread
~ Reuse bread bags, as well as the bags you put your veggies in at the store
~ Reuse plastic shopping bags
~ I make my own household cleaner. This is mostly due to allergies, but it's still darn cheap to make.
~ Other than socks if I can mend it I will
~ I have a leak in the shower downstairs that I can't fix. There's a bucket under it, and when it gets full enough I will use that to flush the toilet. I'm on a water meter, and saving water = saving me money.
~ If there is more than one length of floss left over from a kit I will keep it, and use it.

That's about all I can think of at the time. Would love to hear how others are money saving.

Jeremy has decided to be Harry Potter for Halloween so going to start getting that together this week.

Well off yesterday I felt like I got a lot done on the RR, but you can't tell by looking at it. Did get a bunch done on the model. The border it starting to look SOOOOO good. Just kills me that I can't share a pic. I may post a pic of the RR just to post a Feels like forever since I've posted a pic.

Message Boards Are Like High School

I've been thinking about this for awhile. There are a few message boards that I go to where I feel totally comfortable. Yet for the most part I find that they are like High School. If you are one of the 'in' group people will respond to your question, inquiry or respond to your WIP (works in progress)/HD (happy dances.) All that stuff just kind of bugs me. Someone isn't more worthy of having thier posts responded to just because they are 'popular.'

Woo Hoo Off Today

I can't believe I'm actually off today. Going to just enjoy it. Will probably do some housework, and such but I will be enjoying my day off. A girlfriend called the other day, and I should call her back. So I guess I'll do that today as well as call my Mom. After reading a friends blog, and reading how her Mom acts I'm pretty lucky with my

I Want My Camera Back

So Bill took my (ok technically it's our) digi cam to New Zealand with him, and I miss it. Isn't that silly. It wasn't a super duper fancy camera, but it worked. More importantly I knew how to work So now I'm stuck using Jeremy's little kiddie digi cam. Which in the strict sense yes does take pictures, but there is no zoom & no flash. Wahhhh I want my camera back.

So after the making the oh so exciting Monster Wreath I was searching the same site, and came across this gorgeous wreath
Nightmare Before Christmas Wreath I think it's just lovely. I'm going to make something similar for Christmas I'm thinking. All this is, is a boa wrapped around a grapevine wreath, then roses and painted ornaments are added. I'm thinking a white boa, with red roses, and Christmas ornies or Christmas balls added. I'll have to think a little on that one.

Stitching News

I did work on the UFO RR, and feel that I got a bunch done. I totally got the mailing date wrong. For some reason I had it set in my head that we were mailing out beginning of November, but mail date isn't until mid of My piece finally made it to where it was to go. I can't believe how slow the post can be sometimes, and then others so fast. Still waiting on fabbie so that I can start the other model. I should really check if she sent it, but I don't like to be a nag or come across as a nag. I guess a more apt word would be pest instead of nag.

Monster Wreath

So I saw this while looking for instructions on finishing the biscornu. When I saw it I had to try and make one. Looks like a muppet to me. It's a monster wreath. It should be made with fun fur, but my local Walmart didn't have any. So I ended up using eyelash fabbie, the eyes are ping pong balls with black done with a Sharpe Marker, and it's stuffed with plastic bags of all things. Mine isn't a perfect circle as I let Jeremy help cut it out, but it has it's own character. I think it still looks pretty cute. The pic is not a great pic as my good camera is in New Zealand with Bill, so I'm using Jeremy's kid digi Ok here are the instructions Monster Wreath

This is what Jeremy and I created:

Oh I Should Blog About That

So I'm sleeping last night, and I must have been having an interesting dream, because I distinctly remember thinking. Ohhhhhh I should blog about I get up this morning, get my coffee ready and come down to the computer. Do you think I can remember what that great thing is I should blog about. Um no of course To funny hey.

Stitching News
So I finished the Biscornu last night, and will post pictures when the person receives it. It was relatively easy to finish. Next one I might finish with a stitched side, and a complementary fabric on the other side. Those instructions I posted yesterday for finishing the biscornu were excellent to follow. I also got some work done for the UFO RR. Today I'll work a little more on that, and then get the model out. Can't wait until December when I can post pics of it as it is really turning out lovely.

If I'm Stupid Your an Asshole

So I'm at work the other day, and a customer comes in with two cheques. One he wants deposited, and the other he wants to cash. Now the one for cash is for like $148.87 yes I remember the exact you'll understand why in a couple of minutes. So after I deposited the one cheque I double check that he wants the .87 back. I wasn't trying to be ignorant or a smart ass. Some people don't want to bother with the change. He then starts to freak that I was double checking about the .87. Then looks at me, and says I was pretty stupid to ask that question. Um yeah okay if I'm stupid you are an asshole who lives off government assistance. How I managed to finish the transaction without throttling him is a sure miracle. I was so mad after that my hands were trembling. Like the crap I have to put up with from ignorant customers is amazing. I so hope I hear back from one of those other jobs I applied for.

Bill just left for New Zealand this morning for at least two weeks. Yes it's for work. No I'm not going with him. No I'm not mad I'm not going with him. Those are answers to questions I'm always getting. He has to go spend two weeks working on a rig. What am I going to do in a different country by myself? Would be different if he knew he'd have a few down days, but he knows he won't. To me that is not a fun vacation travel with him, and then split up at the location so he can go work.

Stitching News
Not that much exciting going on. Have to much to stitch not enough time to stitch it all Isn't that always the way. Just finished the stitching part for two Biscornus. I got the idea as well as the patterns from
The Floss Box She has really cute free patterns. I also found a neat site that seems to have good instructions for how to finish them Biscornu Instructions I also want to get a bunch done on my UFO RR that I'm in I can't believe the next mailing date is like November 4th I think. Plus the model I'm working on. Yup busy, busy, busy.

Call Customer Service or Send an Email

I get this letter from our ISP saying that they is some changes up and coming with our email address. They provide instructions on how to change things if the customer uses outlook express. We use webmail just so that Bill has access to all emails while he is on the road as well. Did they provide the site for the new webmail address, um no. They then say to either call Customer Service or send an email if we have any questions. So I send an email. That was like two weeks ago, and have I heard anything back? That would be a big no. Why even give the suggestion if they have no intention of replying to customer emails? I know they got it as I got the delivered reciept. I guess I'll have to call.

I was so excited this week and last week there were two jobs I really want. One is a Financial Assistant for the City, and the other a Receptionist at a local Oil Company. Both full-time, and both in town which are good. Well in town is good full-time I'll deal with lol. If I had my choice I'd work like 3/4 time like 3-4 days a week, but all day. Not like the 19 hours a week I'm to average right now. Like I could be scheduled to go in for three hours which really just messes up ones entire day.

I'm doing up something quick for an exchange. I'm not going to say what it is or even post a pic just in case this person reads my blog.

Lazy Feeling

Here I am at work wishing I was some where else. Hmmm day dream about hot beaches, and sun. Instead I'm stuck at work all day wahhhh. Can't I just be a lady of leisure?

Well Bill will be home tomorrow or Thursday. Just enough time to do his laundry a couple of home cooked meals, and then off Saturday to New Zealand for work. He'll probably be gone three to four weeks. Hmmm wonder what kind of trouble I can get into while he's gone lol.

Worked on the blackwork model last night. I was up in the border for part of the night so I don't feel like I got much done, but it's looking good imho.

Can't I Just Stay in Bed?

That is sort of how I'm feeling today. I just want to crawl back into bed, and sleep. I guess I should be an adult, and do what I need to do today which is go to work. I want to sound like Jeremy, 'don't wanna.' Insert whining voice. Speaking of Jeremy I swear that child has my pain tolerence. Saturday night when I came home, and checked on him he woke up, and had to use the toilet. While he was up he told me his ear hurt. Ok it's like midnight I get some children's tylenol, and hot water bottle for him. I get him all set up, and he goes right back to sleep. In the morning I'm asking how he feels does his ear still hurt. He's like nope doesn't hurt. During the day he tells me his head hurts. I say where he points to the front of his head I say ok give him some more tylenol, and he lays down on his own in the afternoon, and has a nap. Now when he wakes from his nap he's telling me his ear hurts again a lot. Well it's Sunday walk-in clinics are closed. So we make our way to emerg. Turns out he has a raging ear infection not just in the ear that hurts, but both. The Dr. is amazed that both ears are not killing him, and that he spent most of the day just doing errands not complaining. Trust me I kept asking as he has a tendency to get ear infections.

Stitching News

Even though the frog spent a brief few minutes at my house I feel like I got a bunch of stuff done. Worked on the RR. That's one where you won't see your progress until you take a wip pic. Not sure why some projects are like that, but some are. I also got some work done on the model. I almost have all the outlines done for all the fills on the first page. I then have to go back, and do the fills of course lol. With blackwork I like to do one length outlines, and one length fills. Then when all the outlining is done I do one length fills, one length border. For me it works what can I say.

No This is Fake ~ Cock A Doodle Do

That's what the people were saying that were hypnotised last night during intermission. I volunteered to be hypnotised, but I couldn't go under to many noises were distracting me. Dinner was good yummy Chinese food. It was to funny to see what the Hypnotist could get those people to do. When I saw that I was pretty happy I couldn't go under.

Actually Going Out Tonight

This is almost amazing to me. In almost two years I'm getting a baby sitter and heading out tonight. I can't believe it. Yeah I've gone out when Bill has been home so it's not like I'm chained to the house. I've tried in the past to find baby sitters, but with only knowing one young person (my next door neighbour) I haven't had any luck. Now this new girl at the bank knows a few more people than me so she actually hooked me up. People I'm working with (yeah I don't like my job, but like most people that work there) we are going out for dinner yum, and then going to a Hypnotist. This is a fundraiser for one of the Jr Hockey Teams in town. I'm looking forward to it. I've put my name down to be one of the people hypotnized so that should be an experience.

Last night I was actually feeling a little better so I worked on a model for Stitchin'spiration I can't show a picture until December, but it is stitching up lovely. It's a large blackwork piece using Waterlilies silk floss, and a light brown linen fabbie. I can't wait to be able to show it off. This morning I'm working on the UFO RR, and if I can later some work on the model.

What Tarot Card Are You

I thought this was pretty neat. Tarot is something I'd like to learn how to read better once I find my cards that is lol.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Blog Break

Coughing Diva with No Coffee

The only thing so far good about today is I don't have to go to work. I slept downstairs last night so that I won't pass on this cold to Bill, and also so that I wouldn't keep him up with my coughing. OMG I swear I if I slept 2 hours last night I'd be surprised I was coughing that much. I even took cough medicine, and I'm not one to take that stuff. We had Buckley's in the house it tastes awful, and no it doesn't Took some still kept coughing. I think about 3:30 am I passed out from sheer exhaustion from just coughing, and that's when I think I slept for a couple hours woke around 5:30 am coughing some more. At that point I said forget it went upstairs, and started my morning. Two things that will make you sicker than a dog 1) work with the public, and 2) Have a child in school. I see a nice long nap in my future I can tell you that. Oh and to top it all off I went to go make some coffee for myself this morning, and out of coffee.....GRRRRR. I can't even blame anyone else as I'm the only one that drinks the crap here.

So Bill is leaving this morning for Saskatchewan for about five days, and then leaves a week from Saturday for New Zealand. Lucky dog poor baby has to go to New Zealand for at least three weeks for work. Would have been interesting to go with him, but I wouldn't see him he'd be out on the rig the entire time, and I'd be sight seeing by myself woo hoo. So I'll stay home, and probably do a cleanse of some sort.

Well got the first mailing of the UFO RR yesterday. She was mailing from Calgary, mailed it on Saturday, Monday was a holiday, and I got it yesterday. I was pretty surprised thinking that was pretty fast. She sent Rocky Mountain Christmas by Marty Bells. It is very pretty. Or will be when it's done. I got some stitching done on it last night, and will again today. I took a pic as it arrived.

When I Feel Down

Not sure what it is about me, but sometimes I get that down and blue feeling. I've been having this feeling the last week or so. Should I go so the Dr. about it possibly, but I'm afraid they will just give me pills. It's not like I feel like that all the time, and often linked to PMS so I'm sure the two go hand in hand. Anyways one great way I find of getting out of that feeling is goofing around and playing with Jeremy and Bill. That often can snap me right out of it. Getting some exercise even just a walk around the block get those natural endorphins running through my body. Another is shopping. Ahhh you are thinking typical woman shopping. I don't go shopping for me. What I love to do is plan little surprises for friends. Last week I bought the 2007 Ornament Magazine for not only myself, but also for my friend Loretta. Okay the surprise back fired as the company I ordered them from sent BOTH to Loretta so she got hers plus mine with my name on So there goes that surprise, but it's the thought that counts right. Keeping my fingers crossed that my copy of that magazine gets here soon. Yesterday I was looking around cafepress, and found loads of mugs for people who are interested in fishing. Now I have a good friend that lives in California who loves fishing, and dreams to one day be a Fishing Guide full-time. So this morning I'm going to select one for him and get it sent to him. Oh he'll be slightly annoyed with me as he doesn't like it when I do stuff like that. Probably the reason I still do.

Well woo hoo SAL (stitch a longs) actually work. So after 8 years, one North American UFO RR, a tab bit of cursing Wind Swept Santa is finally done. Here he is in all his glory. wind swept santa oct 7-07 I almost can't believe he's actually done. He was my oldest UFO, and at times a PITA. He was stitched on 14 count aida, Gold Collection Dimension Kit designed by Peggy Abrams. The trim of the toy bag has gold beads, and a french knot garland, there are a scattering of white french knots all over him (I think that is to represent snow flakes, the green garland that he is wearing has red and yellow french knots as well as gold beads. I'm going to try to get some good close up pics of some of the detail. Heck I worked that hard I'm going to show it off so bear with me lol.

Ok here is close up details of Wind Swept Santa:

This pic is a close up of his scarf, and belt. I was to have made tassels for the end of the belt, but I didn't even want to try that so I just stitched bells that matched the ones at the end of his staff.
close up of scarf and belt

Note all the french knots in this pic lol. Why he's holding branches from a tree is beyond me lol.
close up of tree branch

Lastly this is a close up of the trim of Santa's toy bag. What didn't come out very clear is on each bell is a gold bead, again note all the french

Contest ~ Just Nan Silver Needle

Woo hoo there is a contest for the lovely chart by Just Nan Silver Needle see pic below. The draw is being held October 26/07 the rest of the info is here Just Nan Silver Needle Contest

I'm going to enter. I don't often win these things but ya never know. This is a very pretty band sampler. I'd probably be tempted to stitch it Or at the very least add it to my 'to do' pile.

Good luck to everyone.

Thanksgiving Roast?

Well it's our Thanksgiving up here in Canada. So out getting groceries I'm trying to get from Bill what he would like for the special dinner chicken, steak even Turkey. My first thought wasn't Turkey as it's only three of us, and that is a lot of leftovers for three people. So he finally said whatever I wanted to do was fine as I'd be the one that would have to cook it. I said okay what about a roast. He said no at first as it was to much work. Me to much work I just throw it in the crockpot with some potatoes in the morning, and a bunch of hours later we have dinner. So yeah I selected a decent looking roast, and I'll get that cooking fairly soon. Have to love my crockpot I just don't use it as much as I should. So at least we are having something special as I don't cook roast every week. There should be some leftovers for roast sandwiches everyone's happy. Hope to get out, and do some stuff today go for a walk get outside. That would be great.

Stitching News
Well I still have Wind Swept Santa out, and have burned it yet. So that is something. Going to make a couple of changes on the chart there are tassels on the end of his belt, but instead I think I'll stitch two of the bells that are on other parts of the chart. Discovered even more backstitching, and a whole other crop of french knots I have left to do last night. Which is why I find it very helpful to look at the finished picture while doing the backstitching. There is still a chance I may finish it this weekend.

I Will Snuff You Out

So on STNA I'm one of the admins on there. I'm not sure why, but every day we are having to delete loads of potential spammers. Not sure if other message boards have the same problem or they just like us or something. Yeah a bunch of ladies that cross stitch so yeah what we are looking for on the message board is sites about xxx (no that is not x's for cross stitch), Viagra, loans or on-line gambling. Geees. Some are trying to get smart leaving off their website, but then when I search their email address it takes me to all kinds of places. Or it's a cross stitch site, and you list your hobbies as wine tasting, and racket sports. So if you are a potential spammer STNA will snuff you out each time. Don't waste your time we will delete you. Go try a different message board.

Stitching News
So it's the UFO (unfinished object) SAL (stitch a long). I pulled out Wind Swept Santa, and decided to work on him. Not even five minutes after working on him I'm like oh yeah that's why you are a UFO. The pic below looks like he's done, but I still have backstitching to do as well as beads to add, and french knots. I feel on this one the more backstitcing I do the more there is to do. Will her ever be done?

It's a Long Weekend

So it's our Thanksgiving up here, and that should be a good thing. Yes it is I don't have to work Monday so that is good. Just we don't have any family here, and we are just going to be doing dinner for ourselves. Which don't get me wrong is fine I love spending time with Bill and Jeremy. I just also miss family back home.

Stitching News
So I was digging out my UFO's today for the UFO RR that I'm in. First I pulled out Wind Swept Santa as I'd really like to get him done, but as I looked at him I went huh there is just a small tad of backstitching left which I should be able to get done during the UFO SAL this weekend. So instead I'm sending the Thomas Kinkade kit which Bill gave me years ago as a Christmas Present. So be interesting to see how much gets done.

A Decedant Day Off

So I finally have a day off today. Oh the wonderfulness of it. Jeremy at school. Bill at work, and I'll have from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm all to myself. I love just thinking of that seven hours of which I can do as I please. I know I'll run out and buy a coffee. I don't have to I have coffee at home I could make my own, but I want a vanilla latte. Wear my fleece pants and a sweat shirt all day, take a nap just to try and shake this cold and watch a bunch of bad daytime Spend some time on some message boards. Do a quick once over the house to make sure it's not to cluttered, and some stitching. I'm almost done another page on Merlin and Arthur I'll make sure to post a pic as soon as I am.

Here it is in all it's glory one more page done on Merlin and Arthur. The paper beside it is the actual chart page I stitched from all marked up as I colour as I go. Just thought it would be fun to share that.

The Blogging Challenge

So on we are having a blogging challenge blog at least once a day for 30 days. I have to say that I'm very proud of myself that I've have done so I'm posted on this blog once a day since the beginning of the challenge. I have like 17 days to go so not even half way lol.

I have this silly cold that is making me feel yucky. Not to mention I also have PMS right now so I must be a joy to live with right now.

I actually got loads done yesterday on Merlin and Arthur. I may even finish another page hopefully this week. I discovered something yesterday when I have my stitch on everything else falls into place house work gets done, stitching gets done, and all is good. When I don't have my stitch on it seems like nothing gets done very strange.

Zero to Ten and I'm Stressed

Well Jeremy came home yesterday with a bunch of homework yesterday. To me it seemed like a lot. He had 5 spelling words to review for a quiz Friday. Those we got. His reading to practice which we did. Plus he has a quiz Wednesday where he has to be able to spell zero to ten. So that we started to go over, and I can get him to spell zero to three. Printed out he can recognize them. There there is the October homework starting on the sight words. That I didn't even look at yet. So I wonder why the Teacher only gives like two days notice for the number test. Jeremy has to be able to read them, write them, and make up groups five of this, or four of that. The only part I think he'll have a difficult time with will be the spelling of the numbers. I guess I just need to not totally stress out about it, and do what I can. I still have today, and tomorrow morning to get as much as I can into his brain. I just don't know sometimes I'm like wondering what the heck am I doing floundering around trying to help this little boy understand and get things. Last year I didn't care for Jeremy's teachers, but I felt they were always there for me ready to talk with me any time about anything. This year I like Jeremy's teacher, but she seems much less ready, willing and able to just go over things. Now this may be, because the couple times I went to talk to her I may have interrupted what she was doing. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt. A good thing they seem to have a Teaching Assistant in the classroom now. I'm very pleased with that. She's not there strictly for Jeremy, but she's an extra body to help out.

Stitching News
Well I got like jack squat done yesterday. Had Needle Guardian out got a little of back stitching done. Pulled out Merlin and Arthur, and got nothing done on that. Oh well today is another day.

Writers Block Can't Stand It

I don't have a clue what to bore you guys with today. Bill got called out on a job for yesterday, and there's a good chance he won't be home today. I spent last night stitching, and playing with the Satellite Dish that they finally got working. Honestly other than watching 'We Are Marshall' (which imho I found to be just an average movie) I didn't find anything that exciting about Bell ExpressVu. Not to mention I still haven't found the channel TBS grrrrr. Got groceries, did laundry yesterday and the brat from down the street was over yesterday. Yeah he's only five, but I don't care he's a little brat. At least at my place I have some sort of control over what is going on. This kid will hear me say 'no' about something, and then he'll start whispering to Jeremy 'ok go ask your mom again, but ask like this.' Now I just call him on it hey no need to whisper I can hear you, and the answer is still no. Now I thought Jeremy doesn't listen, but this kid could give no listening classes. I've had it if he doesn't listen he's going home end of story. The sad part is I can't even count on his Mom. Both our husbands are in the same industry, and work out of town a lot. One day Jeremy was over playing, and I phoned to see if he was there she said they had gone to the Park. I said ok no problem when they get back please just send Jeremy home. Well two hours later Jeremy not home I walk down to their place, and low and behold they are in the back yard of the brat's house playing. I knock on the door, and she's like oh I was to send Jeremy home wasn't I? Um yup. So I don't even call anymore I just walk down there. You know want something done right, and all that crap. Like Saturday I invited the brat to Jeremy's Birthday Party, because I didn't want to look like the bitch. Okay who are we kidding I am a bitch, but I don't need to prove it to everyone else ;). This little brat doesn't show up until like 2pm. That's when the Birthday Party was over the other kids were leaving. Whatever Jeremy and the late arrival played for about an hour. I mean the nasty part of me is thinking yeah you guys were either to cheap or to lazy to get off your behinds to go buy a Birthday Present. Oh also had to talk to mil (mother in law) yesterday. I swear that woman is a complete idiot, once she says hello she has told you everything she knows. I got off the phone quickly blaming it on my cold which I do have. Ok enough complaining
