In the middle of the night.....

It is Stupid O'Clock.

I'm up because J is at work because the shop has been done over.  Massive of stuff has been taken apparently.

We've spent the weekend at an airshow, and it's been fabulous, but so Very Tiring!  The kids had a great time, we had a great time, we loaded and unloaded boxes and boxes of models and props and the kind of stuff that you take to a Large Model Show when you are a shop.

Friday we were up and back to get T-Boy.  Home about 9.  Bed by 12pm because the snakes needed feeding and that takes a couple of hours.

Saturday we were an hour and a half away from home at the show by 8am.  We went to bed around 1030pm after the lads had gone back to the shop (hour each way) and got more kits. (and KFC, for which I love them and forgave them everything!)

Sunday we were up at 7 after spending the night on a deflated air mattress which was Not Comfortable, to spend the day at the show doing stuff and watching some amazing flying displays, including the half scale tiger moth.

Starting packing up the show around 5.  Drove back.  Unloaded the vans.  Came home.  Bed around 11.  Up at 2.30am when the alarm system phoned to say it was being burgled.  J went, phoned me to confirm, and I phoned police etc.

The lads are there now.
I'm home now.
I can't be there, because the children are here.
I know the police are there.

I know I'll be tired tomorrow and that I should be in bed now because the children will be up tomorrow, but I can't.  I can't go to bed without knowing that everyone is ok.  So I'm up, watching Discovery Shed's Auction King's, which is the same kind of thing as every other kind of reality show, and then Dinner PArty Wars, which will probably be utter pants.

On the other hand, I feel like part of the shop team, and I'm treated as such.  I might not get paid in cash ever, and I wouldn't expect to, because I don't know enough about what I'm doing, but I love being there, I can shift boxes, make tea, do computery stuff, and basically do everything I can to help out.  That's what you do for family.  I'm worried, like it's family, because they are.

I should use the time to be working or something, but I am Too Tired. (I know, because I'm using Too Many Capital Letters!)

Speak to you laters peoples!
