The Liver Birds are two large bronze metal birds. They stand on top of the Liver Buildings near the docks, of course there are no such birds however I always understood if they are ever destroyed Liverpool will cease to exist.........................heavy stuff.
Non-heavy stuff has been happening though.
Sunday, I received a text from Mr F - 'the hoover (vacuum) is crap, I have been trying to hoover upstairs for an hour and it has picked up nothing....moan.....grrrr....harumph.......we need a new hoover'
my reply 'is this foreplay?'
I don't think I can ever fully explain the joy of having a hoover that works.............ever. I will say I had a very nice post-hoover cigarette and feel wonderful right now.
This Liver Bird is a little one
Just enough ice for gin and tonics
the glue gun surpassed my expectations
My Wedding Vow Renewal dress
Sassy B gained a first and a 2:1 on her first end of year Uni exams (she was 4 marks away from a first, she wanted me to add that, also she worked very hard too and works part time whilst maintaining ultimate sass, I would also like to add we are very proud of her)
Missy has earned several rewards from school for being intelligent and generally fab
Little Miss-ette worked flat out for her SATS (results pending) and is performing in the school play
Mr F has got a new job
I wear red lipstick and manage to keep it in the lines..... sometimes
I have been hacking/improving my dresses
I adore this one but it was that bit too small and I didn't like the collar
so I let out the darts, unpicked the ruddy awful collar and re-sown it, whilst Ms Jones the sewing machine complained and threw several strops (she is such a pain in the ass to use)
New chazzed brooch
Love this dress, hated the 'sleeves'
they were little flimsy, stupid cap sleeves that added nothing and ruined the line when wearing a cardigan
so I unpicked them, tossed them to one side and re-sowed
Sassy B is off to Aya Napa tomorrow
I'm helping to pack - this is her contribution
Rollers, important......very, very important
I am suspiciously eyeing up what has to go in the suitcase right now
................please wish me luck and the precision skills of a ninja
I hope you are all wonderful!
I will catch up as soon as I have ironed and packed my daughter's case
I may (ha! will) need a stiff drink
thank you for all of your divine comments on my last post too!!
