Feels like ages

It feels like ages since I've been blogging....that's probably because it has been ages! This past month has been CRAZY...but a good one! First of all our holiday to Fort William which was fantastic but seems like an age away already, then a week back quickly unpacking, washing, ironing and repacking again for our stay at Summer School.....which was AMAZING! As you can guess it wasn't a relaxing holiday but certainly a working one, but one that I and Thomas enjoyed tremendously, and would absolutely do again. So many wonderful people, and what a wonderful God..put them together and you have a taste of heaven...can't wait!

The girls stayed at my mum and dad's for the first part of that week and then they went to their other gran and papa's for the next part. They had a ball. Thanks to both mum's and dad's!!!

Unfortunately during these weeks we had some times when we were being pestered by my "stalker"...which I don't want to go into too much detail about on the blog but this was a situation we had to deal with on a number of occassions and it did give us a bit of bother. I do have to say a huge thank you to Janey who passed on the message of the "stalker's" telephone calls left on our answering machine to us both times when we were on holiday. Janey was looking after our house and our pets and kept us informed on the latest from the "stalker".
So thank you Janey and Ross for you help and support and for allowing us to hide up in your home on a few occasions worried incase "he" just popped by!

Thank you too, to my dear Thomas who phoned "him" and tried to tell him in a firm but gentle way that this wasn't normal behaviour. Unfortunately he still turned up on Sunday Morning at our church with more gifts for me, but again thanks to all of those who stayed beside me when he was talking to me, and for helping to support me through such a weird situation.

Also while we were at Summer School one of our gerbils, "Heidi" died, and it's cage mate "Woody" didn't look too well when we got home. She looked so lonely and didn't look as if she had been eating. She also seemed to be disoriented and kept falling over to one side. I checked out the internet and one site said that they can just be so lonely they just give up and die. I obviously didn't want this to happen so I spent a few days really giving her lots of attention and making sure food and drink was close beside her. She's still quite sad looking but putting weight on which is good.

I am also going to be starting a new job next week working at Bellshill Salvation Army helping there with the Lunch club Monday to Friday, and am looking forward to meeting new people and being able to share with them....although I am pretty apprehensive about doing the cooking when the cook is on holiday!....AAAaaaaghh. Never mind, I'm sure I will learn! Unfortunately I have had to hand in my notice to Hamilton Salvation Army where I have worked for the past three years, and it was a pleasure doing my best to keep the church clean, tidy and fit for use, and I will miss it!'s been busy, and I can't believe my girls go back to school on Thursday, ALREADY. I hate getting back into a routine...I like the unpredictable days that school holidays bring. These past weeks have just flown by.....hey Dayna and Miriam...I will miss you!
