Monday Morning Catchup

Good Morning!

Today the blog is 8 months old and we have just skated past 13,000 page views.

The quails are getting bigger and should start laying in the next few weeks, they've really started to settle in to a routine with me, when I open the door to the shed that their coop is in I always say "Good Morning Ladies" and sure enough by the time I've unlocked and opened the door they are waiting at the side of the coop to greet me with a chirp, they are so much fun to watch I can see a lot of my time being "wasted" observing them.

There was so much we wanted to do this weekend, more often than not we set ourselves more tasks than can possibly be completed and this weekend was no different.

Saturday we had planned to go to the One Love Centre to finish of some of the projects and make some progress so we got ready jumped in the car and by the time we got half way there it was POURING DOWN with rain so we ended up changing course to visit Nanny and Granddad instead.

Saturday Night I was out at a party with my motorcycle club, The White Wolf Brotherhood. From what I remember it was a pretty good night, I found this photo on my phone the next day of me with some of the guys:

I drank far too much, stayed out far too late and come Sunday I was suffering BIG TIME, I felt like a Nosferatu and couldn't stand the blazing sun that decided to show up to taunt me now that I was in no fit state to do anything productive. In short I wanted to retreat to a warm dark place and shut out the sun, I felt like fungus.

On the Subject of fungus, the Pound shop mushroom kit we bought a while back has started to come to life, progress pic below:

Carly had absolutely no pity for the husk that was formerly myself and dragged me out down the seafront to enjoy the beautiful sunny day. We took Logan in to the arcades to go on his favourite "penny shooters" and after a cone of chips and a hot doughnut I was back in the land of the living, 

I managed to get absolutely nothing done that I wanted to and will be playing catch up trying to get stuff done all week, so I'm on the "I'm never drinking again" team, until the next time that is

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
