I should have been a nurse!

July 20, 2007


  Well, she’s really fed up today. The spots have doubled and she just wants them to go away. It would be too cruel to let you see her face. Poor thing. I’ve to take Spud to the fracture clinic this afternoon. He broke the end of his finger in the hotel bedroom door while we were in England at the weekend. Bossy didn’t realise Spud’s finger was in the door and she was repeatedly trying to close it!…. I know!

   I have an eye infection and so does Pencil. She woke up yesterday with a swollen eye. Red and itchy. We both are prone to eye infections and seem to get them at the same time.

 (Bossy and Hubs are well!)

Tips for ladies in year 2007

1. Aspire to be Barbie – the cow has everything           

2. If the shoe fits – buy one in every colour.

3. Take life with a pinch of salt… a wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.             

4. In need of a support group? – Cocktail hour with the girls!              

5. Go on the 30 day diet. (I’m on it and so far I’ve lost 23 days).             

6. When life gets you down – just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.             

7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just my personality.             

8. I know I’m in my own little world, but it’s ok. They know me here.             

9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.             

10. Don’t get your knickers in a knot, it solves nothing; and makes you walk funny.             

11. When life gives you lemons – turn it into lemonade then mix it with vodka.             

12. Remember every good looking; sweet, single male is someone else’s ex boyfriend!               

 Now smile and send to any girl wasting time at work, suffering from a hangover, or suffering from work that might need a reason to……

Works for Me

July 18, 2007


There are many housework tasks I put off, but I’ve found a product that really helps me do the two most boring jobs in the world. Cleaning the microwave and the fridge. It’s called Dr.Beckmann ‘Rescue’  . My fridge stank of prawns, but after taking out the shelves and cleaning it with Rescue, the odour went straight away. It cleaned the microwave no problem. Check out their website
