As I sit here the night before publishing this post, it is occurring to me that I really should plan better. I am wondering if I have indeed, read, watched, made or wore anything (other than jeans and a jumper) which would be of any interest to anyone! Not to mention the lack of photographs! Only one way to find out – here goes with all the little things I have been loving this week!
So.. it is not exactly a secret that I read a fair bit of chicklit, however, my latest 99p Kindle purchase is slightly pushing even my limits of cheesy nonsense. I don’t want to name the author because I’m pretty sure it is someone who has self published. And do you know what – anyone who has a dream and goes out and fulfils it, should be proud of themselves. It’s not like I paid £9.99, so I cannot expect a work of literary genius. But I will be relatively pleased to reach the last chapter on this one.
I revisited an old favourite this week and watched an episode of The Kardishians. (It is possible I am killing my street cred here this week!) It was just an old re-run, but I found myself glued to the screen, reluctant to get up and put the kids to bed. I think the appeal for me is not only in watching how ‘the other half’ live, but because I enjoy watching the family dynamics. They fight and love like every other family I know. Pretty normal after all! Plus, anyone who promotes a ‘big butt’ in this world of size 6 models, has got to be a good thing!
I was going to say Cheryl, but I’ve done enough damage here already, so following on from last week I am going to tell you about another proud Mammy moment. Aaron, who hasn’t said much thus far, has been rattling out Mama, Dada, and playing with a dinosaur while shouting Raaaaaar!!! Walking and talking more in the space of two weeks, he is definitely moving from the baby to toddler stage. It’ s nearly enough to make me broody. Nearly; but not quite!
My usual attire, but I am considering buying a waterproof suit of some description. It feels like it has rained non-stop and I am craving a big old plastic coverall with attached wellie boots, to prevent me having to change my jeans every time I return from the school run! I’m too short. My trousers tend to be too long. This results in them drinking up surface water more efficiently than any Kitchen Towel I have ever purchased. Or maybe some skinny jeans and boots would work instead of a fisherman’s outfit? I’ll have to go shopping and see what I can find!
I forgot to even include this last week! This week I made.. emmmm…. beans on toast for dinner one night. I now have half a kitchen, but trust me.. a few more weeks and you are going to be salivating at this section.. absolutely salivating!!!
Watching my kitchen finally start to be fitted! I have a sink. Okay, I haven’t got any taps or running water, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. It’s been a long, dark, slightly unhygienic journey.. but there is light people, there is light!
