Tuesday 8th of November 2011. Crawley.

Got up at half past 8 today as I have 2 days off :-D Ignored the carnage in the kitchen and did some work on a few trees. Dunked myself in the bath at 11 am only to find that the water was set to heat up again at 1.00pm so no chance of a top-up. Got out of the bath around half 12. Just finished wrapping a towel round my head when my son Jamie knocked the door "Just came round to chill" he said, and plugged himself into his laptop. He has a good job. He's off to set up the sound and visuals in a few days for the table tennis tournaments for the Olympic games in London. Did some more family tree stuff for young Bex. :thumbsup Welcomed hubby home from work, went shopping. Cooked hunters chicken for dinner. Minaz came round to chill. Djody (son) came round to chill. Lee (Son) came...

The Earps of Staffordshire.

Got home from work, cleaned up last nights carnage in the kitchen and sat down to wait for the 'Virgin' repair man. Again. He came and checked the box, then fixed the telephone that he believe's got dis-connected by one of the dogs during a 'freaking out' session due to the fireworks. I'm saying nothing. :shock:
Spent the rest of the day looking for Earps in Forton, Staffordshire for a friends family tree. There are so many of them! :duh
Had some vino and settled down (after bangers and mash) to watch retro X Factor and Time Team. :thumbsup

School uniforms

Permanent Linkby Nevis on Sun Aug 07, 2011 8:30 pm

The son (Djody) :kiss came round and we were watching 'Men in Black 2' When an advert came on showing a good deal on a school blazer, shirt and trousers/skirt' offered on one of the big supermarkets. That started up a discussion about how all kids should wear the aforementioned kit, but have a special school tie. Much easier on the purse strings, and more scope to be proud of 'the old school tie' xx
I remember the shame of not being able to afford all the kit for 3 lads, so they shared, and put up with all the taunts. They all have good jobs so weren't scarred for life or anything. What do you think? How much do you pay? Do you think it's right? They should relax the rule on uniforms ( especially in today's monetary climate) :? xx
