I didn't upload anything yesterday for the sheer fact that I was so tired it hurt and I barely made it through a TV show at the end of the night. From being up at 6:30am, doing the food shopping at 8am, getting on a bus to finally see The Dark Knight Rises at 11am, home by 2:30pm, more shopping until 3:30pm and a five mile walk and picnic with the girls and dog to the park, well, once the girls went to bed at 6:30pm it was all over for me. Broccoli and cheese pasta before sleep. Kaput.
Today is big. I had a driving lesson at 8am but that's now been moved to 5pm so I decided to make a flippant comment about what a mess the garden was. Bad move. I got roped in to sweeping the entire thing while he chopped down broken branches and dug the flowerbeds. The result is a nice clean garden but it was hours of work while the girls played around us and I've hurt my back. You can see in the photos above that it looks pretty clean and Sadie the puppy definitely enjoyed the sun.
Today is big for other reasons. My fiance has a great job opportunity and after jumping through hoops for months with tests and team building skills he finally has his interview. I wish I'd got a picture before he left because he looked great but I didn't. He's been out of work for some time now, in and out of part time jobs while in university so we've been relying on my income but it's so good to know that out of 130 applicants he's in the final 13 for 2 jobs. I'm sat here with my fingers and toes crossed that this will be the first step to a better life.
Summer has arrived and with it, hope.
