Work was fine today, not too busy, a nice gentle flow of patients and no one spoke to me as if I am a thick receptionist (I do get it occasionally). Sometimes I am seething inside and feel like saying "I am actually a writer you know, this is just a very part time job to bring in more pocket money for my cherry shop treasures." But I have a feeling they wouldn't care.
And by 5.15pm this evening, the kids had eaten the leftovers of last night's chicken casserole with dumplings and mash and I'd washed up. Mine is all plated up ready to shovel down in front of the TV now that they are both in bed and we have exhausted a zillion books. I ate at 4.45pm last night and I didn't like it. I was starving by 8pm again!
On cherry tree purchases, I'd like to show case the toys I've bought for the kids.
|A girl always needs a Bagpuss (the old fat furry catpuss was £4 from Oxfam)|
|Bagpuss loves sleeping on this piece of patchwork which was made for the Princess|
(and I painted the fairy painting!)
|I painted this when the Princess was two|
|I bought this Care Bear from Barnados (£1.50)|
The Princess had been desperate for one so I was chuffed!
|I bought this wooden fire engine from Oxfam for £4.99.|
It was originally from Hamley's and the kids love it
I have finished my latest freelance writing job. It was for a company called Name Art and I love what Charis, the founder, creates. See the below piece of art that I had commissioned for the Prince as a christening present. Name Art put words into pictures and is very clever. Even Dannii Mingue is a fan! All the animals have words to create their shape (double click on the photo for a better view).

While he plays with his cherry tree fire engine. Perfect timing son!

Right, the chicken casserole awaits me. Followed by a Double Decker (my drug of choice!)
