But then in return, some days are destined to be good days and I think today is the day of fine things!
Firstly, the postman brought me great joy, even if he is not so full of joy himself. A beautifully wrapped package from Pink Milk, which was the prize giveaway I won this week.
I am a person who is naturally easily pleased at the smallest things, so imagine my excitement when I opened this little beauty. I nearly spontaneously combusted.
|I love the gorgeous packaging|
|Getting tres excited|
|Never has there been a truer phrase|
|I have always been mad for the colour pink. Always!|
|The nicest thing to have arrived in the post for ages!|
|The piece de resistence|
|Utterly stunning (note to self: use handcream more often)|
|Heather added a couple of extras including this gorgeous ring|
And THEN my sister called to tell me that we are hitting a spa together on Tuesday as a little treat! I have Tuesday to myself all day after the Bon Jovi gig the night before. The husband has the kids and I have time, I love the sound of that word, to myself. We are then going shopping and then having dinner at our parents' house and my lush Dad then said he would drive me all the way home. He is brilliant, always willing to go the extra mile (literally this time!).
I am feeling a little jaded today though. My beautiful friend Missy came to stay last night from Somerset with her little boy. Our children were born on the same day and although she was in the year above me at school, we only met properly through our children.
We get on very well and don't stop laughing from start to finish. The children all stayed up until 9pm and then Missy and I drank a leedle bit too much wine, scoffed waaaay too much bad stuff and had a generally silly time.
|The Princess and her birthday twin|
|On a school night too, tut tut. (Her son has inset day today though)|
|Very sober. Very very sober.|
|Getting our second wind|
|Missy: "Let's smile nicely for the camera, Gem"|
|Very silly. It looked so much funnier last night...|
|My dear girl|
|Still quite sober, I am a terrible lightweight.|
|A rather messy end for somebody. Who drank far more than me!|
This weekend I shall mainly be watching Glastonbury on TV, although secretly part of me is wishing I still lived so close to the festival site that we all got cheap tickets. The weather is going to be scorching, mind you I don't fancy all that mud.
The reason Missy came to stay last night is because her son's school has an inset day today due to the festival. So many are going, it's not worth opening the school apparently!!! How hippy is that?!
I've just heard it's over knee deep in parts. Yuk. Been there, done that, think the comfort of my sofa is more preferable this year!
