Been busy today getting everything ready for Harry's scout trip. He's off tonight until wednesday at the centenary camp. I've packed everything it said on his list, but if its anything like the last camp, he will come home in the clothes he wore to go. They have loads of activities laid on for them and I'm sure he will have a great time.
Our eldest son Ben has been sitting his mock exams all this week, he's been busy revising every night. We received a letter from his school yesterday saying that he had received a commendation for his work in R.E. Ben is very academic (not like me at all), he is good at all subjects, especially Maths and the Sciences. He won a silver medal from Leeds university a couple of weeks ago for Maths... ( I hated Maths at school). Lets hope that his excellent grades continue.
Our roofing contractor turned up this morning to let us know that they will be here tomorrow, to do the roof on the old kitchen. Couldn't have come at a better time as we are due rain on Sunday & Monday. At least once we are water tight the rest of the plastering and plumbing can get started again and then all the new units can be fitted. Can't wait for them to be finished so that I can clear out our lounge, I've currently got a new range cooker and hood in there, plus the dining room table and six chairs and boxes of kitchen bits.
