On a slightly more positive note, there have been a couple of happy occurrences in the nut household over the past few days: we had a lovely afternoon today (edit: this bit doesn't make sense any more as it's Tuesday and in fact we were at our friends' house on Sunday, which is when I originally tried to publish this post, despite the fact that it says Monday at the top. Confused? Me too!) with some very good friends (food, wine, conversation - adults; Coke, ice cream, running around - kids). Essentially, we spent several hours eating and drinking then attempting to slump on the sofa (well, the adults did - it's hard to slump when you've got six children running around and jumping on your head. Why is it that food has absolutely the opposite effect on you when you're, say, five, and when you're just a smidge over 35? When does the change happen? Actually, it's when you're a student, isn't it? Silly me.)
I took a little something I'd rustled up, for my friend - not sure if she'll ever use it, but it looked nice on her windowsill. (This isn't her windowsill, this is my kitchen worktop - thought even she might think I was a little crackers if I took my camera round specifically to photograph a jar of sugar; though I could be wrong.)
And the second little highlight for me was winning this award from the lovely Dinki Dots.
Thank you so much for this - I'm really thrilled and slightly worried, cos now I have to come up with seven new, interesting facts about me...Eeek! (I think I might continue to scratch my head for a bit longer and post my facts later in the week. Cop out? Sorry!) In the meantime, I'm passing the award on to Nelly's Eggs, Chipper Nelly, Cuckoo and Homebird because they never fail to make me smile - thanks gals!
I'm going to finish today with the latest installment from my assistant:
In the words of the lady herself: uh-oh x
Edit: I've just noticed I seem to be having a bit of an issue with my post not updating - not sure if this is a problem with Blogger (though other people's posts seem to have updated okay) or whether it's because baby n dropped the laptop from the sofa onto the very floorboards that you can see in the photo above. I'm hoping it's the Blogger thing.
