|I'm coming to geeeeeet yooooooou.....|
And if you really wanted to, you could make this. Something lovely for the kids....ahem.
I also managed to spy these in the Link Romania cherry tree shop. £1 each. Retro recipes, natch.
It's Friday night and I've only just stopped mopping the kitchen floor and scrubbing the bathroom. What has my life come to? Where is the glamour for gawd's sake?
I used to have a social life on a Friday night BC (Before Critters). The husband still worked late shifts but he would get in from work at 1am and believe it or not we would go clubbing til the sun came up.
Get a grip, it didn't seem all that mad at the time - we lived in Bath city centre and we were young and naive. Fridays, I used to love you.
By the time I get the kids to bed and eat and clear up and sit down, it's verging on 9.30pm at least. Where has the evening gone?
I spend most of it doing this...
|I do clothes, not clubs these days.....|
The older I get, the less hours there are. Days used to stretch out ahead. I am never, ever in bed before midnight these days and then find I am waking up in the night. HATE that.
I mean, I barely get the time for cherry tree shopping these days. I need to make time, just like in one of my fave films Withnail & I.
Anyway, today has been quite frankly, rubbish. It's been a hectic week as I got a huge proofreading job to do over just two days before it had to go to print and I felt I was spreading myself thin as have no childcare. But it's done now and I met the deadline. Phew!
I think perhaps I've been overdoing it recently and I feel like I need time out.
The weather is grim, its blowing a gale here right now. Summer, where the heck are you?
Mostly, the beach has looked like this:
Then there was yesterday when I got back from the school run looking like the understudy for the freaky girl in The Ring. Bad times.
But this morning, this arrived for me, courtesy of the very wonderful Kylie and it made my morning. Bless her, she and I love Ladybird books and this little beauty headed to me all the way from Western Oz.
|Ok, so I enjoyed it more than he did...|
|My collection is practically heaving now|
Oh, and on a tangent, we have found ourselves a delightful babysitter. The husband and I went out the other night (a school night, he is never off on a Friday) and had such a lush time, it was a long time coming so we shall have her over again. What a find she was. Not had a babysitter in nearly nine years, just parents. I have some catching up to do.
I got myself ready with a spritz or five of my favourite perfume. It smells exquisite. It's £3.99 from Lidl and I blogged about it last year. £3.99, that's like the price of a magazine!
|Eau de Lidl, how I love thy scent|
|My actual best friend|
|I think I spend more time with it than I do the Husband!|
Off for a crazy choccy biccie now then bed. Rock and roll...
