September brought about a big change in our household. Not only did the bigger one go back to school, (different class and teacher, big thing!) but the smaller one also started pre-school. I think it was actually a bigger deal for mummy than 'himself' as he had been looking forward to it for ages!
Apart from a slight blip (or rather screaming tantrum) about ten minutes after I had left him on his first day, he seems to have settled into the routine very well. I now enjoy a couple of hours a day when I can actually be myself. I haven't quite remembered who this is yet so it is all a bit strange but I am rather enjoying it. Surprisingly, I am not managing to get more work done. I am finding that the opposite is happening but the house is in better order. So now, I am waiting for the 'me' that I used to be to re-emerge! Has she gone forever, or is she just hiding? Personally I think she is biding her time until she has a little more of it! This is made abundantly clear as I attempt to write this whilst being harassed by the smaller one to tidy up the mess that he has created. Mums are people too! Aren't we?

Anyway, after fighting our way through that, and two happy meals, 2 plastic dragon toys, (one of which was defective) we set off home again. On the way home I decided to treat them further. I decided that £5 each in Toys'R'Us would be nice!!! Why I would considered this a possibility I don't know. It was never going to end well. Don't get me wrong they both had a great time but somehow the £5 turned into £10 and there you go! Skint again!
The bigger one treated himself to a talking, cuddly pokemon toy that he absolutely had to have to go with all of his others!!! The smaller one now has a transformer which he seems to be quite happy with as the vehicle and doesn't care about it being a robot! Could have just got a standard bin lorry instead!! (Yes, I did say bin lorry, don't remember that one in the film do you?)
Anyway, they seem happy with them at the moment, although they will probably be forgotten tomorrow like everything else. Oh no! I nearly said it!! Wasn't like that when I was young!!
Oh well, was bound to happen sooner or later!

The bigger one is going on an overnight residential with the school next month. What a drama thats been, he's going, he's not going, he's going!!!! He doesn't have enough trainers (apparently he needs to take 3 pairs!! What exactly are they planning to do, its only overnight). It will be an experience for him, if he actually makes it there. The smaller one on the other hand still doesn't sleep at night, still downs bottles and bottles of juice and then needs changing completely in the wee(literally) small hours, still pushes me out of bed all night. Sleep, sleep, I miss you!
Lovely husband has also been a big scratchy recently, I think alot of it is due to lack of nicotine!!! He gets his tobacco supplies when my parents come back from their trips and they've been away longer than usual this time. He is so short on golden virginia that he is producing the thinest roll ups I've ever seen!!! Thankfully a friend brought round a packet of reasonably priced stuff yesterday so he should be a bit more human! (well he would be if the shower hadn't packed up on him! Having to have a bath every morning before work doesn't a lovely husband make!)

I've been rather busy lately doing the magazine and updating my Mystic Earth site. I have added seperate pages for my Crystal Properties and will soon be adding more stones to make it an even more comprehensive guide.
This morning I completed two sets of bookmarks. A set of four for Mystic Earth and more for the Gothic section of my Radiance Crystals site. They are all double sided, laminated and have a lovely charm on the organza ribbon.
These are the Gothic Designs.
These can be found on the Mystic Earth site and have the properties for the stones on the back.
They are £2.50 each. I'm pleased with how they came out.
