How is your weekend so far? Mine is fantastic. Friday night was spent with old friends. Much laughter and good cheer was enjoyed. Considering we only 'nipped for a brew' after tea, the 3am walk home was refreshing!
Up with the larks, well awake enough to watch the cracking Wales v Ireland 6 nations game. Then, much to the horror of the poor delivery bloke, I had to answer the door in my nightie, sans supportive under garments!!! I actually took delivery of the parcel from behind the door, literally snaking my arm round the door. What's my name? Well it's clearly Miss Glamorous Perty McSupermodel!!!
That poor poor bloke will be scarred for life - just from my hair alone.
Soooo the bathroom was cleaned, the Mother in Law was given coffee and witty repartee. The witty repartee was delivered via the HG and Mr 19 as I enjoyed a lovely shower in my clean bathroom.
Speaking of which, I bought this new fangled twin gel thing that you 'pipe' onto the inside of the toilet bowl. ( You know, I'll buy anything new once. Well, it looks like one of the kids has had a nasty accident with the stripy toothpaste. But it smells nice.
Then the MiL went for the bus and not long after...
Miss 22, her young man and of course a certain Freddie arrived. Much giddiness and waggling of backsides ensued. Once I'd calmed down.... ( sorry- went for the easy obvious giggle )
We've bought him a life jacket for his seaside walks, he looks very smart in it. Spag Bol was made by me where I almost had a culinary disaster. I put in two kaffir lime leaves. I looked and thought those Bay leaves look greener and fatter than usual. Then I sniffed- they smell nicer than bay. Oh that's because they are not bay leaves. Fortunately, I fished them out pdq and switched for the correct leafery and no one knew the chaos in the kitchen had occurred!
Before I sign off for now I thought I'd share a couple of corkers from work this week.
On a school trip to a steam railway, the onsite workshop leader was asking by the children all about their knowledge of the history of the Train.
Man : so can anyone tell me any more famous engineers from the same time in history?
Child: ( confidently ) yes. Rhubarb Kingdom Brunel
The man took it all in his stride
Ahhh yes, good old Rhubarb Brunel !!
The question was set
The train line is 40km. The engine only has enough coal for half of the journey. Where will the train stop? Bearing in mind, it is a maths lesson
Most of the class: 20km
My little soul : durrrr the train station!!
Thanks for indulging my whiny post last time.
Well, we are just watching Crufts - of course none come close to Freddie and then I think I will have to give in and go to bed. I cannot do 3am nights out any more.
Just before I do go, please please enjoy this lovely shot of Freddie and then pop along to his very own blog and show him how adored he is!!
Lots of love from
