I tend NOT to say much about it as I'm not. Thank god I'm not a hoarder either is all I can say or life would be even more chaotic!
I'm also a real shiny stuff person - you know what I mean - a million and one things to do and .... Oooh:
This morning for instance, I've got a list!
Clearly SD actually WROTE the list for me but I have EVERY intention of looking at it at some point and ticking stuff off it, yes I DO!
I've got a day off today so as soon as Miss Mac went off to school I set about it with determination - first of all I made myself a coffee - then I sat in the garden for a while - then my phone beeped (actually it vibrated as I always have it on silent which is why I ALWAYS miss your calls ...).
it was a WhatsApp message from Matt The Op, remember him?? Despite the split lip and chipped tooth we do meet up for coffee every now and then when he's in town which he will be tomorrow so a pleasant half hour passed exchanging messages and arranging to meet up.
So, back to the list, but then ...
My lovely friend Lou phoned (didn't hear it as phone on silent so had to phone her back) saying she too had a day off today and could she pop round for coffee.
I considered my list (that's a lie btw - It's under the dining table on the floor where the kitten knocked it off earlier and I left it ....).
Yay, of COURSE you can come round, Ive got nothing else on (which is true as none of the stuff on the list actually exists unless I read it does it?).
I'll be round at 11 she said, just got to clear a few jobs off my list ....
Which gave me an hour an a half to do MY stuff ...
But then ...
That kitten I mentioned - the last one of a litter of four, three have gone to good homes which leaves me with a small, very demanding tortoiseshell bundle of fluff
|with bloody ENORMOUS claws!|
Then I though I really OUGHT to get dressed before Lou arrived but I couldn't find my skirt.
This is where it can sometimes be a pain not being tidy. I THOUGHT Id left it on the Ottoman at the end of my bed but (having thrown all the other clothes on to the floor) I discovered it wasn't there. I checked the bed in the spare room which doubles as an ironing basket (except I don't iron ...), nothing ... I looked in the bathroom and Miss Macs room and then came to the conclusion that I must have just accidentally taken it off when I was out somewhere and left it or something so I pulled on some shorts instead.
I am feeling RATHER virtuous having achieved so much so far this morning ...
One thing that SD seems to have missed off my list (and I can say this in all certainty not having even read it is REWRITE THAT BLOG POST!!).
Holly from English Girl Canadian Man very kindly passed the Liebster Award to me and I was chuffed to bits and sat down (almost) immediately to write my own Leibster post.
But, as Joe pointed out, it was a LAZY post and he told me to go back and do it properly (quite right Joe and I shall!) so, if you clicked on a non existent link then sorry and if you did see it and comment (thank you Joe and Ann) then don't be surprised when a new post is up with the same name very soon because (as long as I don't have too much SHINY STUFF getting in the way then I am on it!).
Talking of SHINY STUFF, SD has his own too (see, it's NOT just me!) - look what we picked up this weekend ...
|I forgot to take a photo so I've lifted this one from the previous owner.|
And, well, I might have lost my skirt and list and been a little distracted this morning but SD clearly FORGOT that he already HAS a buggy because now he has TWO (and he says I'M disorganised!).
