‘Ello lovelies and happy Sunday to you all!
Once again… better late than never! Again, this week has been crazy and I have been working away, left right and centre. This is the first day I have had to simply sit down at my computer and write! However, with a busy week comes many a happy and challenging situation. Here are a few of mine:
… playing dress up with my baby cousins. Ok, so they aren’t so much babies any more, but to me they always will be. I’ve known them their whole lives. I’ve watched them grow up, I experienced their tantrums, I’ve wiped their snotty noses, I’ve taken them places, taught them things and to me, they will always be my baby cousins.
This time it did hit me that they were growing up. The eldest one is at that awkward adolescent stage where they’re too old to be playing with the little ones, but to young to sit with the adults. I remember that stage all too well. So, instead of a costume, I raked out an old prom dress of mine and went all ‘say yes to the dress’ on it. I knew all those bull dog clips would come in handy when I went mad at the stationary shop. After clamping it up so it fitted her (I’m a blob fish, she’s a stick insect) I realised just how grown up she really is. Made me a bit teary!
Then the little ones came charging in and stabbed me in the butt with a pirate sword. Moment gone.
…doing the jellybean challenge with my parents (and kinda, sorta cheating.) It was nice to just be able to spent the time with them and have fun. As you may know, recently I visited the Warner Bros. Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter and, of course, I bought a chocolate frog and some Bertie Bott’s every flavour beans.
Jellybean roulette ensued. Only thing is, after getting a grass flavoured bean, a dirt covered bean and a sausage flavoured bean, whilst my parents happily sat their with their lemon sherbet and marshmallow flavoured ones, I decided it was time to even it out a little bit. So I looked at the piece of paper that told you the flavours and gave them the soap and vomit flavoured ones.
What? Would you want to eat them after eating all the other gross ones too?
They didn’t mind. They thought it was funny. Moral of the story: don’t cheat at life kids, just the jellybean roulette.
Only joking, I went for a catch up with my friend who has been living miles away for 3 years. There was lots of chicken, lots of laughing and lots of catching up to be done. It was just nice to get out of the house and socialise, especially with someone who I just don’t see enough!
Well, that’s it for this week. I hope you all have a lovely week filled with fun!
