Thursday 13

Thirteen Things about the Aginoths
  1. I haven't done a TT for months! I couldn't keep up with doing it every week, cos I'm much too disorganised, and also like to get up on my soap-box whenever I hear something to rant about.
  2. I did intend to keep up with it irregularly, but life seems to have got in the way of any regular blogging recently.
  3. I have made the decision to start being a better blogger, and get back to posting something every day, as i know i'll just end up forgetting to do anything if I don't keep it up properly.
  4. Today's TT was inspired by Aggie's Birthday TT posted today. be nice & go say happy birthday to him;-)
  5. Despite the fact that our bank account is completely empty & I have no idea how we are going to buy food for next week never mind anything else, we are off on Holiday to Cornwall on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it.
  6. We're staying in a Haven site in perranporth, so hopefully it won't cost too much, as there is plenty to do on site
  7. Nanny A is coming too & has kindly got tickets to Flambards Theme Park for everyone off of Tesco.
  8. Tesco's is also hopefully going to be paying for next years holiday, as we've discovered this great site where they give you the codes for extra points! Aint blogging wonderful? :-)
  9. Mstr a has had a really good couple of weeks at school. I'm feeling really guilty for wanting to change schools now:-( But I really don't want the girls to go there as I have actively campaigned against allowing church funded faith schools at all!
  10. He has actually made some real friends & been invited to play at their house! And invited back again!!!
  11. He has also lost his first tooth. He has been desperate for this to happen since his first classmate lost theirs over a year ago, so is very happy.
  12. I finally feel that i am starting to get a litle bit of me back, as the children are now (occasionally) playing together without my direct supervision, I have finally made a few friends of my own, and my baby-sitting circle is up and running.
  13. It looks like I'm going to get a distinction on my para-legal course (if I manage to finish my last couple of essays next week). yay me. But I still can't earn enough to cover the child-care costs:-( it's not right!

    Of all things on your list, I think I relate most to "I am starting to get a little bit of me back." THAT is a good thing!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog now. ;)

    I don't want to appear thick, but then I do love freebies, but I have no idea what to do with these Tesco codes even though we shop at Tesco? Help!

    Work on getting more of you back. Then you'll have more to give those who you love.

    Happy TT. Mine's up!

    It only helps if you shop online. After you've got to the checkout, but before you confirm, you can input voucher codes. It's the same as getting the little vouchers scanned at the till. Each voucher has a specific code & can only be used once per customer, but they don'y keep track of who they've given which vouchers to, so nice people publish the codes on the web so we can all use them.

    [chuckle] Your #2 was quite funny... irregular regularity. [heh]

    #3 - Good luck with that decision. :)

    #4 - I did!

    #10 - Way cool!!!

    #12 - Oh, I so understand the feeling of getting back a bit of me. I'm happy for you.

    Well fiddle, sorry I was late to your T13. I didn't realize that both you and your hubby had done one. :)

    Hope you have a grand time on Holiday tomorrow (Saturday).
