King of the Castle

My little son turned 4 is 7.45 pm and I am exhausted.   
We all went to Bangor, Co.Down for a day out with Ryan and my step dad since it is Father's day too.....the weekly car boot sale was on so we had a browse there.   Next stop was the kiddies park and Pickie Puffer train ride which my son enjoyed thoroughly.    Next stop after that, a spot of shopping.  For once I was wise with my spending.      By the time we had got home it was 3.30 pm.

We are just relaxing now, can't believe how much my feet are aching from the day out today.
Ryan is also loving the toys he got for his birthday....books, clothes, you can see from the picture he looks like he is ...king of the castle!!!

Latest news

I had a lovely birthday yesterday , and got spoilt with so many presents. 36 sounds old but it isn't really (unless you are a 6 year old)!
My boyfriend got me a big box of The Body Shop well as a silver earring and necklace set and he accompanied me to my favourite Dim Sum restaurant for lunch - I was well chuffed.
I had been inundated with birthday wishes from family and friends and received some nice gifts including...
a Chinese tea set, a decorative teapot set, a Sat nav system for my car, a fresh bouquet of flowers, personalised items from my favourite sister Yvonne, as well as chocolate, other jewellery and money..... I feel so lucky that I have friends and family that care about me....

This week I had volunteered to do two extra shifts at the charity shop. Audrey, the main worker there was in hospital and will be absent all of next week also....(she happens to be the wife of last year's Mayor of Newtownabbey..)
I really like my job there.

On Monday I am going to get two new front tyres fitted to my wee motor. It went for a service recently and the engineer recommended it. Cars cost a lot of money to maintain I can safely say that!

We are headed to my cousin's again tonight for an outdoor barbeque party.   I must admit I haven't been to one in years.

Ryan's new teacher when he starts primary school is Miss McDonald.  His new uniform is a yellow polo shirt with a sweatshirt worn on top, both with the Abbot's Cross emblem on the right breast.       Exciting stuff!

School meeting...

We have an appointment at Ryan's new primary school tomorrow afternoon. The aim of it is to get introduced to the teachers and to find out about uniforms, and other issues.  Andy has taken a day off work to go to it.    It is only another 3 more weeks before Ryan finishes playgroup for good...scary thought!!  I'd gotten used to having my own freedom for three hours every morning....

I visited my younger sister Yvonne yesterday.  She's fine and is coping well with the twins.
They are both now around 12 -13lbs in weight.
