Gosh, where to start? The thrills never end here on the sunny shores of the Mediterranean ...

The official Changing Of the Summer Clothes will begin, which will mostly entail having boxes of winter clothes all over the house for about two weeks. Two weeks during which the temperature is bound to take a sudden leap upward again, just to keep us nuts.

Then of course, there will be my usual Sunday of ironing. That I have the latest season of Sopranos on DVD will help somewhat, but ...

May make the first bread of the season (if anybody thinks I bake during summers of heat in the high 90's, low 100's ... think again) now that there's this scrumptious chill in the air.

Sofie's been under the weather all week so my hope is that we can have a happy, relaxing weekend where we ALL can nap a bit! We have very little planned. If it warms up we'll probably make a couple trips to the park and do some yard work. I'm also hoping DH will take Sof for a while and I can scrub the kitchen floor (woo-hoo, fun for me!).

I`ll be looking after my 16 month old daughter whilst the wife goes shopping, then I`ll be off to my allotment garden, do some more weeding, harvesting more Chilis, Carrots and squashes, then I`ll sit in my shed and listen to my program on the radio whilst consuming Beer with my feet up on the top of my gas fire :)

as for Sunday, I`ll be at the same place but in a more official capacity trying to organise a bonfire/fireworks/food fest for Nov 5`th, and making D@mn sure that I`m not doing it all entirely on my own this year!

Ever tried to keep kids away from a fire whilst cooking and serving food AND trying to keep a pyrotechic display going for 40+ people!???

this Sunday, it`s either Help me this time, or NO Party!

sorry to hear sofie's sick, pab. i can sympathize.

just wait 'till she gets old enough to ride you like a horse.

my son thinks it's fun to ride daddy as he scrubs the floor on all fours, or uses the carpet cleaner to remove spots from the carpet.
i don't mind really, at least i can pay attention to doing a good job, and i know where he is.

I bought three large pumpkins today, so my husband will be carving those for Halloween. I'll be weatherizing the house...putting clear plastic on some of our drafty windows. Probably clean up the garden too, and the usual stuff like groceries, and laundry.

I'm hoping it is going to be a restful weekend. It seems like I've been on the go all day for the past 10 or 12 days and we leave midweek to clean the farm house in preparation for my mother's birthday party right after Thanksgiving. I'm not issuing any invitations and I think dh is going over to help a friend on his barn on Saturday so I may be able to rest as much as I want.

Tomorrow still more packing and moving stuff. I have done about a dozen runs between London and Somerset because the removers keep postponing and everytime I am up in Town I think I might as well bring stuff back. I think that by the time the movers arrive I will have done it all! lol. I haven't brought back any of the breakables, the appliances or the books....mainly because we live in a walk up....the top floors of a town house...floors 3,4,5 (which in USA would be 4,5 and 6!) I have filled one of my parents attics with our stuff and I am about to start on the other one.

Sunday I don't know what I am doing, but I think I might go and enjoy Autumn somewhere and have a good long walk. I am really going to be homesick when I am out of UK so I might as well make the most of it. And my parents have friends over for lunch so I think I would like to clear out and give them some space.

I have been to animal blessings Half Baked...and they are lovely. Have a great time! I used to go to ours on one of my ponies when I was younger.

Hope everybody has a good weekend!

I hope Sofie's feeling better soon PA!

My weekend all depends on if I can find an easy recipes for green tomato relish or pickels. If I do, then I'll be making those. If not, I'll be bathing the dog, scrubbing the bathrooms, replacing the outlets in the den (unless I can con hubby into doing it tonight), cleaning the ceiling fans, washing the walls, & maybe even cleaning the windows. I sure hope I find that recipe, I'd much rather be in the kitchen putting up tomatoes!!

Saturday between 1pm and 3pm the Hewlett Packard Technician is coming over to install a new modem for me.

He was here on Friday but the modem that was sent to him is a much higher quality and in order to be installed it needs a CD.

It all started about a month ago when I went into Internet Explorer and then after I started replying to threads it closed down and went back to the Internet Explorer page and said error cannot something browser. I called up HP and I was on the phone for approximately 2 hours on my cell phone since I have dial up. We ran a lost of tests and finally because of 4 FAILs and error codes he said I needed a new modem.

Now that the tech is coming I am having no problem getting to DC.

Sunday my girlfriend and I are going through travel brochures because we want to take a trip.

Thats my weekend.
