|It is surprisingly difficult to take a picture in|
the hallway mirror.
Mind you, being full time parent with the kids was actually rather empowering. I managed to get plenty of home stuff done too - like washing and getting rid of mould and the pots - so that the house looks a little tidier than when I started and we all have more clean clothes. If I manage a similar amount tomorrow we should have clean bedding and clean rooms to sleep in. Yay! Also, it has given me chance to talk with my children and the Girlie, in particular, has gained much from knowing that I do things differently to Tilly (she may not like it all, but she has learned that there is more than one way to skin a cat, not literally, at least). So, there have been positives but mainly it's been a bit pants not having her well and home.
|This one is the second and it doesn't look|
Actually, looking at the images of that ensemble that accompany this post I think it does look rather fetching. I ought to have added the wig after all, I could have looked even better! Mind you, I am glad that I didn't as the Girlie did come downstairs whilst I was in the kitchen and explaining that away would have been impossible. Also, scarier than I would have liked at this point in time. I managed to hide away long enough for her to go back upstairs and give me chance to don jeans and a jumper so I could go and deal with the problem (a ticking clock that was too loud).
|Yeah, yeah, of course I tried a curtsy.|
Also, she wanted to know what we were doing regarding my father. I think I've mentioned that we are sooo not looking forward to going down for his birthday on Christmas Eve for a meal at a place that does not do children's food, has nowhere for the children to run around in and does not really want children there (though it will not turn them away) at 7pm (their normal bedtime) and that they don't want us to "rush away from". I have no clue what my father is expecting of us. My mother knows nothing of these shenanigans but is desperate to find out so she can feel hard done to and that my father has more time with me than her as it will feed her martyr complex. No, I am not feeling charitable to either of my parents.
Not much more to say tonight.
|Gotta love the slipper hanging off there.|
This is an attempted curtsey too.
