Half time

I don't know why I'm watching the football. It's half time in the FA Cup Final anyway. R is in work, so I'll have to watch the replay later on!


Some time later! (about 1hr 30!)


I've just caught the presentation ceremony!

Not being a person for spoilers I shall wait until after the replay, but it means I won't be able to talk to R about it at all!

I was outside talking to James who turned up to have a look at the car. Basically, we are very, very very lucky there wasn't a serious accident this morning.

We were on our way to R's work at stupid o'clock when just before the Tesco there was flap flap flap and so we stopped at Tesco and had a look and yeah.


Lump of engine not where a lump of engine should be. The stud going through had been over tightened and sheared, and the tensioner was sitting in the belt. Thankfully, and I've just found out how bad it could have been, that was all that happened. James filled me in on how bad it could have been (i.e. through the fan, through the radiator, into the middle of the road, engine seized in under 10 seconds, major league death and destruction, very least, write off engine and therefore car!)

So we didn't know all that, came back, and he went to work on the bike. He came home. We waited for James whilst having a go at the car, he had a phonecall, he went to work!

What a lovely day! LOL!

More later people - the AC should be home now!

Busy Day today!

OK, lots to do ahead.

R is in to work at 8am, so we need to leave at 7am as I'm going in with him to see the work thing and know what he's talking about when he gets home!

Back around 11. Possibly.

We still don't know what time he has to go back this afternoon, so he may well be gone most of the afternoon as well, in which case if I'm asked I'll do BG's money. If not, it'll be some time next week. We're working on ways to make it more regular and easier for both sides, but *throws hands up* what can we do?

Last nights phonecall was good and bad. Good, because BG was obviously feeling a lot better, bad, because she was out. All day apparently, at a friends. I was pretty sure when R told me the name that this was a friend that she wasn't to play with some of last summer because the mother was x,y, or z, but I might have been wrong. The She-Ex couldn't email and let us know, for whatever reason, so we'll just mark it down. It's no huge deal, we'll phone her today, as long as she knows we tried to call and that we couldn't. Now apparently, she has a cellphone of her own, but clearly didn't have it with her or her mother would have suggested we call that. Besides which, she was playing with other children. For her, that has to be a good thing. I've emailed her mother to ask how she's got on with the work this week (after all, well enough to play is well enough to work lol!) but we'll wait and see on an answer on that one.

This evening R is back to work at some point. For some time. Again, we don't know what or how long or anything or even when he has to go back in.

I'm shattered and achy from yesterday but the upstairs is looking GOOD! AC's room needs he and I to go through his toys. This time next week he'll be 6. I know I shouldn't moan about not seeing him on his birthday - after all, R hasn't seen BG on her birthday for several years - but I do feel sad about it a bit. His party is the following week at the local sports centre, which will be cool, I hope his father has done something about the invitations - last year he gave them out the week of the party and they had the wrong address on them!

I need to shower and get sorted before I get R up for work. Deep joy all over lol!
