A Year In Pictures - Week 39

Once again I have failed at catching up on the blog front - and next week I start second job in run up to Christmas and we have an inset day so I fear the case is hopeless - here's to January and a new start then (I know I shouldn't be wishing time away but sometimes....)

This week has mainly been about the bloody boiler not working - three plumbers in my kitchen at 5pm on a Friday night is not good news for our bank account and the flipping thing is still not fixed - so we are without hot water for the weekend - grrrrr! We did have a busy weekend last week with two parties for Little Miss and a trip to the Intech Science Centre and Planetarium which was pretty cool - even if most of it went over Little Miss's head. The girls had a very exciting day at school on the European Day of Languages 'visiting' their classes countries and Little Miss was very proud to get the 'Respect' badge for her class this week ut I failed miserably to take pictures of these. I did however get a pic of a pretty purple beetle on the way home from school!
