What day is it again? ...

Today is Monday  eh no it's Wednesday .... no wait it's Friday ..... or all three.  I took the day off from work yesterday. The kids didn't have school thanks to teacher training which is why today feels like a Monday. But it also feels like a Friday cause tomorrow is Ascension day - no work/school and the actual Friday is a bank holiday so yay - no work either.  Other than still having loads to finish off at work I'm loving this!

I made the kids work in the garden yesterday, they were not loving me much. But hey, despite what they imagine they don't live in a hotel. Plus, a bit of hard work has never killed anyone, has it?  I bet they are praying for lashings of rain on Thursday and Friday so I can't make them do it again :)

Things at home are also changing quite a bit. As of this past Monday we once again own a pub. Which means that Himself now has his day-job (Stack-Cup) and a full time night job running the pub. As you can imagine he is not getting a lot of sleep.  But it is going okay thus far. I'm sure we'll all get used to the new schedule again. Luckily it is not such a huge shock to us since we've done this before.  As of June he will have help over the weekends so then he'll only have to work 5 nights a week i/o 7.  Having the pub also means we have some cash on hand again which is always handy. Plus, I get to drink for free. Okay, to be fair it is very seldom that I end up paying for my drinks.

Tomorrow we are going to a communion party and then on Saturday Tiger has another birthday party to go to. So i think we are in for a busy couple of days. But that is how I like it.

  8. :D Yay for your pub! Is it close to your home? I think that must be a neat business to own.

    Shelley has had two birthday parties in a row, Sunday night and last night. Plus Sunday was Mother's Day here in the States. Crazy-busy weekend!

    Where can I get some of those Stack Cups? They sound brilliant!


  9. You own a pub?! That's awesome! Congrats! My husband owns a gym. I hated it in beginning because he put so much time into it, not only teaching class, but cleaning, remodeling, meetings, etc. Now that he's had it for 6 years, it's easy and just part of our routine. I hope it goes smoothly for you guys and he gets some sleep soon!
