ACHOO! *sniff*

Today... Tired, pink of eye... Posted by Hello

It's been a funny few days. I've been sick with a NASTY cold, which I think is going to settle on my chest again, which means I'll end up back on that bloody inhaler again! Not good.

Being full of a cold also means that I haven't been to the gym all week, so I'm feeling flabby and fed up with myself. But I'll get back in there tomorrow - sniffles or not!

I also have to go gift shopping for Mum. He's 61 on Sunday, and damned if I can think of a single thing to buy her! I love her dearly, but NEVER has a woman been SO difficult to buy for!

  • She doesn't like jewelry
  • The only perfume she likes she has tons of
  • She's not into music or movies
  • She's not the bookworm she used to be since her sight got so bad
  • She LOVES talking books, but wont buy any or have them given becasue she gets them from the library, and is happy to have them just once.
  • She kills house plants
  • She doesn't collect anything


Last time I tried to ask her what she would like, she told me not to spend money on her. Yeah, right, she's my MUM! As if I can't get her something!

So I thought I get her a couple of sweet nick-nacks and a very expensive, posh bunch of flowers from Marks & Sparks - I mean, REALLY POSH, the best I could afford. Until I got a phone call from her at work this morning thanking me for the Gliding Lesson I bought her.

What Gliding Lesson? It took a good five mins to convince her that this gift really really wasn't from me. I can't imagin her wanting a gliding lesson (I love her, but she's deadly enough behind the wheel of a car, know what I mean?). I had considered getting her a day in a hot air balloon in the past, but I could only book for one, and I'm sure she's rather do that with John (my step dad) so I never have.

Now I feel awful. A bunch of flowers is NOTHING compared to a gift like that. Really dull...... Some daughter, eh? So, I guess after I've been to the gym I'll be off into town to try and find something a bit more interesting.

Like a day at a spa or something? Not that she doesn't treat her self to some fantastic pampering on a regular basis already, because she does. Guess that'd be nothing special.

How about a delux make over and photo shoot? Nah, she hates having her picture taken, and she'd only have to pay for the pictures she wanted to keep anyway.

I'm stumped!!!!

Work's taken an interesting turn too. The wanker known as Roy looks like he might be out of a job soon. He's caused no end of chaos since he's been at our branch, starting fights between Lynn and Andrea, trying to get me sacked, and driving Darren to almost killing him, not to mention never doing any work and dragging poor Steven down with him. But now he's caused problems for the company it self - by knowingly buying in stolen goods! Now the boss HAS to do something! HAHAHAHA!

Na na naa naa, na na naa naa, woo o oo, GOOD BYE!


Having said that - he isn't gone yet!

Glenn say's he's closing Lancaster stall down again. He'll change his mind tomorrow, but he'll change it back again on Monday, and so on, lol!

Andrea is determined to take up some of the slack in the shop if Roy does go, which will be great, and solve so many of her problems. I am a little worried about the whole "Lynn thing" though, so I guess we'll just have to see how that one pans out.

BH (my little enterprise ^_^) seems to have picked up again today - HooRay! Just when I think I've hit a slump, people log on a buy stuff! Hopefully I'll have a nice run over the weekend. I've even sold my first lot of StarShip Troopers Minis! AND someone logged onto the site and bought some Duel Masters decks. I thought they'd NEVER shift!

My poor Yorkie's tired out though. Picked him up from work today and he was cold and soggy. Typical, on his days off the weather's been so nice. He goes back to work and it pisses it down! Most of us would think that was good, right? NOT when you work in a garden centre, hee hee hee! Poor bloke! I cooked him a curry for tea though, so that warmed him up a bit. Bless!

I'll have to start looking for somewhere to book for our anniversary soon! It's only a few weeks away and I haven't even found somewhere to go yet! I can't get him to book time off work so we can go away - and NOT go away! I'll never hear the end of it!

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
