I feel much better today - thanks Julie for your kind words & everyone ;0)
Ive had a funny day - a friend buried her brother today whom died last week after losing control of his car, he was only 26 n left little ones behind.
Just got me thinking that lifes to short to spend worrying all the time, you just never know whats round the corner. Just over a year ago we buried my very close friends husband, so Ive had a funny day n its brought up alot in my mind - I really am grateful for everything n everyone I have in my life, including finding you special people on this forum.
Anyway my day ended brilliantly when I went to pick up my boys from their last day at soccer school. My eldest got a medal yesterday for wining a match [:)] - which upset the youngest. But today the youngest got a trophy for best attitude! N the coach said because he tried his best, worked hard, never moaned, listened & always helped through out the entire week[:)]. His face was one of those moments that I will never forget n just about has me in tears now! And he got a medal too because he had not won one all week, so did the others whom had not won one.
He is proud n so I am - hes only 5! Ive put picks on FB n the trophy is brilliant, lovely detail n made of pot a definite keepsake ;0)
So im a bit emotional today - but happy, love my little Footballers x

Glad you've had a better day Lyns.

Have to say that I love snakes and lizards and have handled both.

Thank you - really appreciate you all.

We had to phone Daddy at work as on a 12 hour shift, its hard as he often misses these moments n they miss him not being there for things like this.

They love their football tops - kindly bought by nanny ;0)

Helen, if you have an eye test at Specsavers and they find you need glasses the eye test is free if you buy the glasses there.

I know some people don't like Specsavers but I've had better service there than in the independent opticians I've been to.

I think Vision Express do the same. I used them and they were brilliant.

I had my last eye test at an independent optician and they were rubbish - they told me my eyesight had improved a lot and I needed new glasses. I didn't believe it, but when I looked at the prices of their glasses I wasn't surprised they wanted me to buy them! And to top it all they were all bolted to the wall and you had to make another appointment to buy them!

I went to Specsavers who confirmed that there was no change, so I'm glad I didn't part with any money!

My last pair of glasses weren't right and Specsavers brilliant and put them right straightaway. I like the fact they've got such a big selection of glasses as well, and the BOGOF offers - I've now got prescription sunglasses as well.
