Well on the family front things are mad as always, my 16 yr old son came home with his eyebrow pierced the other night - I wouldn't have minded if he had had it done at a proper piercing studio in a year or two but he had decided that it was fine to let his 15 yr old mate do it instead...joy! Luckily it doesn't look like it has got infected. He is doing really really well at college and he's a happy kid so I am very proud :) Daughter no.1 is looking for work and might be doing something with the Princes Trust which will be cool, youngest daughter is off for the weekend with her dad and will be home on Sunday eve - I've been reading her Harry Potter, she's just the right age now to grow up with the books. We finished the first one and then watched the film for that one, we're now on to Chamber of Secrets. I make no apologies of being a mega Harry Potter fan - I once drove all the way to Edinburgh just to see J K Rowling and be at the launch of one of the books and I can't begin to tell you the amount of Harry Potter stuff I have boxed away!
Granny is still doing ok, she is at home and everyone keeps going round in shifts so she isn't left alone. I really miss granny because I have had a stupid cough and cold all week so I daren't go near granny in case she catches it, so I'm just waiting for it to go then I'll be able to spend some time with her.
Puppy has learnt the new trick of getting the end of the toilet roll and pulling it around the house! She is so cheeky and sweet, I am so glad we got her I have really missed having a dog around. We always had dogs when I was little and we used to go to dog shows and have little puppies and it was so lovely.
Even with my silly cold I have had a busy week, I had a great meeting with BBC history and am getting involved with some brilliant, exciting projects with them - news about that soon ;)
I am off to do my Poison and Powder talk to Cambridge Family History Society this afternoon - I hope my tickly cough isn't going to be too bad!
