Hello Everyone,

Friday again!! Already!!! Where is this time going - I dont have enough of it!!! EEEEK.  I'm doing quite well with printing my images off - I have now printed and cut to size 400 of them - I only have 112 to go!! Then I have to paste them on to the panels - the panels are 5ft x 6ft high!!  We only have one panel made so far!!  Hopefully we will get on and make another two panels tomorrow!

My Sam went out into town for the first time tonight on his own with friends.  I must say I felt nervous the whole time he was out - he is only 12!!!  They went to a nightclub for 12 to 18 year olds.  I thought 12 is a bit young to be going out!!  Anyway, we walked along the seafront and watched them waiting in line to go in the club and it looked like Sam and his friends were not going to be let in.  So I was ready to go and get him back!! But then the lady on the door let them in.   We picked him up at 9:30pm - he was absolutely full of it and had thoroughly enjoyed himself - he said they weren't allowed in as it's 13 - 18 not 12!!!! Anyway the lady on the door didnt want them to be walking the streets (they didnt know I was across the road watching!) so she let them in so they were at least safe!  Anyway, at least I now know he cant go til he is 13 - well he only has 3 months to wait for that!  Glad he is back safe and sound though.

Only one more week then I have to be taking my Joe up to Great Ormond Street Hospital for his tests!!  Im going to tell him at the weekend all about it as I have to inform his school of his absence on Monday.  The tests start on 22nd May - cant believe that is only a week away!

We havent got John's boys with us this weekend - so it is just the four of us.  Me, John, Sam and Joe. 

Anyway, hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Glad that Sam enjoyed himself. That woman made a wise decision letting them in.  As he enjoyed it so much he will really look forward to his coming birthday when he can go regularly.  The panels sound great.

Good morning Laine, Glad to have you visit my journal. I have been reading yours and you have a very interesting one. Your pictures are great of your Children and Oscar. Sorry, I don't have any experiance with the different kinds of things to play music with. I love all those wildflowers in the woods. So pretty with all the different colors and shapes. Yes, I would say you are lucky to live near the woods and beach. Hope Joe's test turn out to be good. Have a great weekend. Helen

Once again, thank you for the beautiful castle picture. The picture is about as close as I will ever get so I appreciated it.
A nightclub for kids sounds interesting but I've never heard of it before. Glad Sam came back safe and sound.
