|I'm getting to know the shadows in my head again.|
The walls shook as the front door slammed. My heart jumped into my throat.He was home.I put on my mask and smiled as he walked into the kitchen. But something had happened, he glared and the anger in his eyes burned my skin. I fought back the tears."I told you the drive needed clearing!" He said.Shit.He left the kitchen and headed into the lounge. Not wasting a second I darted out of the kitchen and hurried upstairs, making sure to keep my footsteps light. I closed the bedroom door behind me and as it clicked I froze. Holding my breath I listened for him coming up the stairs. Nothing."ANDREA!" His voice boomed from the lounge.My heart hammered in my chest as I looked around for somewhere to hide. The wardrobe was small but tucked away in the corner. He wouldn't look in there. I pulled the doors open, climbed inside and closed the doors. I shuffled into the corner, wrapped my arms around my knees and prayed that he wouldn't find me."Andrea!" He shouted.I heard his heavy footsteps as he stomped from one room to another looking for me. The storm was brewing and it would make landfall soon."What is this crap? I'm not going anywhere!"He shouted from the bottom of the stairs. A moment's silence and he ran upstairs; footsteps like thunder raging inside the house. The bedroom door burst open. I held my breath.Please don't let him find me. Not again.The bedroom door closed but I couldn't bring myself to check. My heartbeat thumped in my ears."I won't be back." He called.The front door shook the house again and I let out a breath. I clambered out of the wardrobe and inched the bedroom door open. I peeked out. The house was silent.I creeped downstairs. My foot landed on the carpet at the bottom and I sighed. As I walked towards the lounge my heartbeat settled. I glanced in and stopped dead.His cases still sat in the centre of the room."Hello Andrea." He smirked.
New and Shiny!
"You have to read to be a good writer." That's what most writers say.
1. Lock away chocolate, crisps, snacks, cakes etc...
I have a tendency to eat whenever the hubby is away. I don't just mean snack either, 4 packs of crisps at least, then a chocolate bar. A coffee and biscuit followed by another pack of crisps. The hubby goes away and has business meetings in restaurants and I sit at home and eat my way through our cupboards. Ugh!
The Apple event was held on Tuesday 9th September. At this event the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were unveiled. Two new phones, as predicted.
The iPhone 6 has a 4.7inch display (just like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha or the HTC One) and its dimensions are:
Height = 138.1 mm (5.44 inches)
Width = 67.0 mm (2.64 inches)
Depth = 6.9 mm (0.27 inches)
Weight = 129 grams (4.55 ounces)
Last week was hectic, my diary was full. The first three days of the week I had appointments which meant no writing time. On the plus side I had planned to write something for The Prompt and Prose4T.
At the hairdressers, while surrounded by chatting women, I wrote two poems. With my notebook (paper not virtual) an dpen I wrote the words that were in my head. I planned to type them into the computer later. Unfortunately that's when the tech-gods decided to stiff me with a malfuctioning iMac. The rest of the week whizzed by in a blur.

In our house we have two spare rooms, one downstairs and one upstairs. Both of these rooms were filled with junk over the years; old toys that I couldn’t throw away, old clothes that the boys had grown out of and old shoes (who knows why).
We started a clear-out a couple of weeks ago and filled the car with bin bags full of junk. It took three trips to the local recycling centre to empty both rooms. I can see the carpet in there now!
The start of this week I spent my time making sure uniforms were washed, ironed and ready. I got winter coats out as the weather turned and had new school bags and lunch boxes ready for the start of school.
The next Apple event is imminent!
- The hubby. When I'm in a bad mood he will repeat a line from our favourite TV show (Friends) to make me smile. He makes me laugh, encourages me to push myself and is always there when I need him. I don't know what I would do without him.

Six weeks is a long time with no routine. These last few days I have been stressed (to say the least) and the boys have been bickering and fighting (with fists!) with no end in sight. Although we managed to get out quite a lot and the boys went on lots of play-dates they still weren't satisfied. The iPads were boring, it's been cold outside and they didn't want to play with their toys. I was ready for a break, a long one.
Big Prince has really taken to the loom band fad that all the kids are into at the moment. I recently had the chance to review a Rainbow Braid 5400 refill kit and thought the summer holidays was the perfect time for it.
When the packet arrived in the post it was perfect timing; the hubby was about to start a week of busy work and I had nothing planned to entertain the kids. BP has been making loom bands by hand (without a loom) for a while but could only manage the single ones. With a new loom and these new Rainbow Braid bands in the lounge he was eager to try making the different kinds of bands. We opened up the pack and emptied all the colours onto the carpet. Each colour comes in its own little resealable pack which is really handy when you have a 5 year old wandering around.
