Yeah I am ok thanks, kids both slept with me last night, Jack a massive melt down, Hayley didn't say much, but I could tell that she just wanted me, so we had pizza for dinner, watched neighbours and Home and Away together and then just hoped in my bed @ 7.45pm and watched Legally Blond. They both tossed and turned a fair bit though and I couldn't shut my brain off, it almost as though DH was trying to talk to me.. Both kids went to school today though

I will try- I am finding for me it is easier if I just kept myself occupied. Tomorrow I am hoping to get some painting done both outside and the base for some inside artwork on canvas, so the kids can help if they want to. Then Sunday we and SIL and her family are going to put a memorial plaque on the beach breakwall where DH was scattered.

Thinking of you PBQ, in this week of anniversaries.

I'm working from home today with a sick child (not really sick, but I'm giving him the benefit of doubt), so I'll try and get a bit of housework done as well and go back in to the office tonight for a few hours.

In the next hour:

Unload dishwasher
Tidy kitchen
Bring in washing
Put on another load of washing
General tidy up

Hey, can anyone tell me how to do the strikethrough with words in posts?
