Almost daily diary!

Sunday, June 15, 2008


We had a great night away with friends this weekend and mum did a wonderful job looking after the children. She took them to their school fair (which was a blessing because it always drives me mad!). She took them for the beginning and they were still there at the end, that was 3 hours in total, she has the patience of a saint. If I take them we are in and out like a shot!! Small Sprog spent all his money on a blow-up sword another water pistol (do we really need another?) and sweets. Tall Girl bought jewelry!

However the down side of being away is coming back! Not that I didn't want to see the children, I always miss them, but everything that I normally fit into the whole weekend was still waiting to be done and I had barely and afternoon left to do it in.

Small Sprog had different ideas! I had been absent long enough and as far as he was concerned the rest of the day was his. As soon as granny had gone Small Sprog wanted a cuddle on the big bed and I have to say it was a privilege to oblige! He must have missed me, he never asks for cuddles now. However once upstairs I was captive. He rummaged in my jewelry that is haphazardly stored beside my bed. He put a bracelet on me, then another and another, then earrings. He found a makeup brush and lipstick and applied these in a wibbly wobbly way! Then he tried applying mascara (I do still have both eyeballs left!). Then he found an eyeliner pencil. I was given cat whiskers and a black nose. He surveyed his work with a frown. It wasn't quite right. Then he started to write on my lower jaw.....Miaow! Lovely, I was finished now.

"Do you like my beauty parlor mummy?" He asked me.

"I love it!" I laughed "It's the best beauty parlor I've ever been to."

PS - I like Small Sprog's discerning retail choices! Can we have a picture of the new water pistol, please?

I am glad you enjoyed your cuddle - that was rather sweet!

Aw, no matter if you didn't get the laundry and everything done before the work week, enjoy that cuddle (and make-over:)) time; they grow out of it all too quickly.
Glad you had a great weekend away.

I didn't get a chance to comment on Friday's post--my husband always notices the overweight women, too. I'm wondering if he's sending me a message of warning??
Like your new blog roll--how did you do that?

Awwwww, small sprog really missed his mummy. How gorgeous that he wanted to lavish you with cuddles on your return.

Who cares if the chores are done? You are a cat and can sleep in the laundry pile! ;)

Working mum said...

Aww! Daughter did the same to me on Saturday, but when I said, "I love this lipstick" she said, "It's only pretend, mummy". That's me in my place then!

Aw, bless him. The washing/cleaning/ironing will still there be tomorrow; he won't.

Glad you had a good dirty weekend. Sorry! I mean weekend without the children.

I am glad you had a nice weekend away! I am sure it was worth it when you received your home beauty care from Small Sprog!
