Rather than spend time and money choosing suitable partners I look for bargains or I eliminate a partner ruthlessly, based on previous bad experiences (dark rum 1989, never touched it since)
I rather like Jim
We have dallied before
my crafting quest continues
I found an old long sleeved 't' - I whipped off the sleeves and added a trim
'wunder-webb' is a 'wunder' indeed, it sorted the sleeves in seconds
I'm on a roll despite having the children take the mickey out of my fabulous creations
though 2 of the cheeky monkeys want a knitted headband with a bow
and the eldest wants a faux fur collar/cuff combo
the little blighters
Sunday, after a 9 hour shift
although I had left the house in a dreadful condition
Mr Foxy and children cleaned up, cooked and did everything
all I had to do was iron the uniforms
I look all graceful, which is most unusual as I lack any finesse
we have books everywhere
I found a book and took it to work, Mr Foxy gave it to me 16 years ago
Katherine Mansfield Short Stories (never got round to reading it, ahem)
I really tried
and she is a literary legend apparently
but it depressed me no end
I love 'A Streetcar named Desire'
blinking good read
my literary choices are ridiculous most of the time
Ha! he doesn't advocate bleach so I thought screw that
Its a Q&A book, I am endlessly fascinated by the questions
'Do you know how to deal with a dirty acoustic tile ceiling?'
'Is there a line between clean enough and too clean?
'how can I develop a positive attitude to housework? the author would rather clean than ski, fish, play darts or eat. Really, feck that
'what are the best clothes to clean in? apparently wear white and wear plimsolls
but I like my pretty vintage apron, it has pockets!
I gave this book to Missy
I thought it looked like a fun book
I didn't read anything other than the back
Rule 3 was cute
BIG mistake, big mistake.... huge
(I do like a 'Pretty Woman' quote)
I flicked through it, I am an idiot
turns out it wasn't an appropriate read for a 12 year old
She didn't read it all (Thank heavens) and breezily said 'It's ok, I didn't read those bits'
I got a little stressed
after reading the chapter myself
Oh. My. Gah.
I can't even begin to tell you.
Lesson learned though
I'm off to tackle the upstairs bathroom
see you soon
I do like the word 'awesome'
