All shook up

This morning i didn't feel too good...Well i could barely open my eyes they were so sore with a headache that i managed to wake the boys but didn't make it to college myself...At midday my buzzer went (how i dunno as postie broke it) and it was the police wanting access to the building...Actually they were after me or more to the point after Mikey...Which by look on my face they could tell i was shocked/worried as they said nothing to worry about...One of his classmates from college had been missing all weekend so they were checking with everyone...I said Mikey was at college but he had the afternoon off and tues morning off...Also that i had no idea of any of the kids in his class names except for one of the girls...That Mikey didn't go out with any of his classmates outwith college times...They left and said the kid has gone awol before and turned up so not to worry...Well when Mikey came home he said this kid was at college this morning!!!...Hmmm would have thought either the parents or the police should have checked there first thing...Once Mikey was home i felt well enough, just. to drive to post office to post sympathy cards...So driving along minding my own business, not speeding (for once lol) into sainsburys carpark and finding a space beside post office easily when the car behind stops across back of mine...Next i know there's this policewoman at my window so i opened it...She wanted to know if the car was mine and did i have my licence on me...She looked at the front of the car, checked my road tax and parking permit for outside here all the time saying nothing...Not even her name when i asked for it...She hands me back my licence and said i was ok and naffed off back into the unmarked car which was blocking me in and they drove off...Me left sat there in shock with no explanation as to why i had been basically stopped...With i might add loads of people stood staring at me...I still feel quite shook up about all this police goings on today...I've never been checked out when driving a car before by the police...I have had police at the door once before nearly 12 years ago about a missing person associated with Mikey...Sadly that lad was found murdered a few days later :o( I got impression this lad from college maybe goes off out with friends and stays with them overnight and doesn't think to contact parents to let them know...When they have special needs that can be a major worry depending on what their special needs/disability is...I phoned the police station when i got home and apparently they can just stop you without explanation and give no reason when asked...BUT if you ask their name or better their badge number then they must give you it...I didn't ask for badge number...I just hopo they were genuine and not trying to nick my identity lol...They're welcome to it as there ai n't much of one to nick ROFL

Anyways Mikey had his information session and it went well he said...He didn't need to show any qualifications for this introductory course...All you need is to be interested and keen...He has said that he has a place on it :o) Wonder how i can check without Mikey knowing lol...Oh he is going out now with friends from college on a sunday afternoon...Well yesterday was the second time and they are old friends from school...Him and one other lad and the others are girls...He bought himself a hat yesterday.

Stuart from Speciman Days has now gone private so if you read his blog and still want to then you need to email him at the following addy:-

Am going to relax by checking on my garden on facebook lol as i still feel a bit shaky

Catchy up

Oops i haven't written anything for weeks...Not really had much to write about to be honest...My college course is going ok...I still need to find material suitable which isn't easy as we don't have anywhere up here that sells much in way of fabric...Well there is John Lewis and another shop...John Lewis haberdashery section is to be quite frank crap these days and has been for quite a while...Shame as it used to be rather good...The other shop doesn't sell suit material :o( I still have some time to find some as we make a twall (sp) first...Twall being the mock up in calico where you make any adjustments needed to fit like a glove.

Garath was 19 last week (gulp) I bought him some fcuk jeans and a hoodie that were so vastly reduced in a store closing sale they cost less than original price of the hoodie LOL...Otherwise there is no way i would have paid just under £100 for one pair of jeans...BTW i didn't pay near that for what i bought either :o) ...Had some sad news on thurs as one of my aunties has passed away :o( The funeral is on tues but i don't know if i will get to it yet...She was 80 so had had a long life but it's still sad.

Went along to a craft fair today with one of my friends but it was a bit rubbish...Put it this way we didn't buy anything and we must have been in the hall 10 mins max...We weren't the only ones who didn't stay long either...Shame for the 2 stalls that did have lovely stuff for sale...But then again am sure there are plenty people who wouldn't like my stuff...Then again most of the people who had stalls at the last one by this group weren't there today...I haven't got my cupboard on the stairs gutted yet but aim to do so soon.

I went to the gig, The Kaiser Chiefs, that Garath bought me a ticket for as my christmas pressie from him...I didn't care that i was on my own and i threw caution to the wind and went right down the front where everyone was being squashed :o) Got some cracking pics of the group :o)

Mikey has applied to do an introductory course to I.T. at the college...He has some information session thing tomorrow morning about it...Fingers crossed he gets into it as i don't know if i can go through another year of him doing the SEN course where he is getting bullied and the college do sod all about it.

Anyways i promise to try and not leave so long next time...Some pics below

This looks really dark but it's not...The freshwater pearls are called peacock and are a grey colour...The swarovski crystals are heliotrope and a dark blue with special coating on them...I really like this set as i like the colours with the silver and i assure you it is much paler in reality.

Round freshwater pearls in natural cream colour with peridot coloured swarovski crystals

I like the chain i used on this one...The swarovski crystals are white opal...The round silver beads are corrugated and it makes a change from being plain
