My BIL works for Boeing building the 787 and if you've watched the news lately, you'll know that they had some problems. So there boss told them yesterday that there were rumors that they may have to shut the whole line down and layoff 5000 of them while they do a redesign. So my sister is worried because they really can't afford to lose their insurance with my niece having to have the infusions. Hopefully they learn something more today to calm her nerves. Well I'm off to get some stuff done or maybe head back to bed. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
I hate being tired after I supposedly "rested" all night or because I was up late - Hope you got some Pep !!

Have a blessed day everyone. Hope we are eating snowcream for supper.
Be safe! I made snowcream last year, but I didn't like the recipe I used ~ I might have put in too much extract. What is yours? I hope this finds your parents having a good day ~ they are in my prayers!

We're going to have to tone it down a bit if Jacob is ever going to be allowed to drive it!

I hope y'all have a great day!

This is so exciting hearing about the car !! I can't wait until it's done !!

I do have very vague memories from back then! Mum said I clung on to her crying the first few times she took me, she said the teacher used to take me to one side so mum could run out haha! She always rang the nursery when she got home to make sure I was ok though hehe!'

They only go to school in the snow if all the teachers can make it safely in, most of them have a fair bit to travel to get to school so if conditions get too bad they close the school, pretty much all the kids are only a short walk away so it's not too bad getting them there x
