A Cup of Thanks

Well, it's Friday night, still freezing cold and lots of rain too. I didn't do much today, Fran and I and my two youngest grandchildren caught up with Doug and Shirley for a coffee at North Park. We both had a SU order that didn't arrive on Tuesday so we were expecting it to have arrived and were going to pick it up today. Well the orders are running behind schedule. I suppose because there is a new catalogue  coming out soon and they are discontinuing products, people are ordering more things and this is causing a backlog!
Oh well, it can wait, I think it was only card and or an inkpad.
I dropped Fran off and then came back here, got the fire started and decided to attack another of the boxes piled up in the lounge room. I threw a lot of old papers away and reduced two boxes to one. Still have to go through it again as only did a rough sort.
The rest of the day was spent with feeding Isaac and getting him off to sleep without his dummy as there wasn't one in his bag and he didn't have it attached to his top when he came this morning and then I fed Layla and myself, LOL. She is a real snacker, so every now and then she would pipe up that she was hungry, the last time I offered her a banana and she decided against that. She was really interested in some fruit lollies in the snack drawer, which she had already had a packet of earlier. When she realised she wasn't getting any more, she wasn't hungry any more!!!
Papa came home as I was feeding Isaac so I let him take over and spend some time with him before Mum came to pick  the kids up.
Our youngest daughter came over for a while and then has come back to spend the night with us and we are getting up early in the morning to travel to Victor Harbour for the Lion's Charity Auction. She is hoping to pick up a table and chairs.
Well, I had better hurry and share my card and get some sleep since I have to be up at the crack of dawn!!!
