It's been a hectic time in the Taylor Household.
I've had Adam and Stacey for the last 2 weeks and boy have they kept me on my toes lol We've been lucky to have some lovely weather most of the time and we've been out and about. We took a picnic and went to Ellesmere to enjoy the mere. It's just been refurbished and it's lovely. The children fed lots of ducks, played in the playground after lunch, and we walked around the mere, through woods.
On the days we didn't go out, they spent most of the time in the garden looking at the butterflies that seem to have come out in hundreds, and were fluttering around the buddlea all week.
I'm going to Edinburgh on Friday to see the Military Tattoo :) I'm really looking forward to that. I'm also going to meet up with Diana and her children on the saturday :)
Next week I've got a bit of peace then I've got another 2 little ones coming for a week. These two are 2.5yrs and 3.5yrs old, so I'm really going to be ready for a rest when they go back lol I think I'm getting too old for this job!
On the 'sister' front .... I sent her a picture message of a lovely pink babies bolero cardigan with 'fluffy wool' around the edges and cuffs that's I'm giving her daughter who's pregnant ... I don't have Emma's number or I'd have sent the message straight to her. Karen hasn't had the decency to reply much less say thank you. I sent a parcel with that and two little cardigans to her house to give to Emma. It should've arrived yesterday, but still no response from her .... she's only confirming my thoughts about her!!
At the beginning of the month I went to another Mind Body and Spirit Fayre that was being held in town. After wondering around I sat down to a medium, Micheal. Now I don't know if you believe in it, but I choose to :) I made a point of not giving any answers other than a yes or a no so I didn't give him any thing to work on. He said that two people came forward, a man and a woman. The man was letting the lady talk but he'd brought her to 'show her the ropes' lol Micheal said that she was my mum, and that she said enough of the tears, she wants to see me smile again. She thanked me for the specific flowers that I put down for her (carnations, her favourite) and said she was beside me when I was looking through the old photo's (the previous day) and the one of the man beside a chair was my uncle (I'd been wondering who he was!) She also said that I was like a best friend to her not just a daughter (she'd said that just before she died too :-) ) and I knew how she would have done things so what I'd done was right ..... do you think she meant the garden and cleaning the bungalow? She also said that I'd get what I wanted at Christmas, and Micheal thought she meant I'd 'see' her, but I'm wondering if she meant the bungalow would be sold, so we'll wait and see on that one. I came away feeling so much better, and a lot happier knowing that she's still with me :)
Well, I'll have to get off and make a start on the tea ... these kids do nothing but eat rofl
