… from Downton Abbey on Sunday. Was anyone expecting that???
… at Miranda Hart. Funny, funny, funny girl.
… The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O’Farrell. I need to know what happens but I don’t want this book to end. Do dilemmas come any bigger? I didn’t think so.
Laughing Some More
… at this photo of my brother. He really does have a lot of thyme on his hands. Plus I love his shirt.
… chicken and red lentil curry in my slow cooker. Is there any other kitchen appliance where such little effort is so well rewarded?
… out at the number of mice in the house. Trap Resistant Mice. I bought some bait today so hopefully that does the trick. Until then, whenever I open a cupboard or rummage through a bag, my heart is in my mouth. Not literally. That would be both unlikely and unpleasant.
… that a mouse infestation in the house is a bad time for my husband to be in the Middle East.
…Cheesy Wotsits. I’m making the most of our time left in the UK.
… from my run today. I’m trying to get back into it but it’s as though my body has never exercised before – it’s that hard (as in “difficult” not as a description of my physique). Maybe I should listen to my body and sit down. I’m actually very good at sitting down, it’s a gift.
… apple crumble. Lots and lots of apple crumble. I am certain this is the last time in my life I will have 3 apple trees in my garden.
… to the first album I have downloaded in a lifetime. It’s called, wait for it, Now That’s What I Call Running. How embarrassing.
… my neck is going wobbly. It’s a bit early for that isn’t it? Isn’t it??
… at the skydiver who broke the speed of sound. I love stories like this, of people pushing their limits so we can see what mankind is capable of. I did a similar thing recently when I made meringues out of golden caster sugar instead of regular caster sugar. Talk about adrenaline!
… if I should change the look of this blog as the photo at the top is 3 years old. But then, to include a more recent photo will be to showcase my floppy neck. And that would be wrong. Hmmm.
… Monopoly with friends this Saturday night. Who says we don’t rock? But you have to admit – friends, takeaway, beers and Monopoly is a good night. And who knows? I might win for the first time in my entire life.
… a birthday party for our soon-to-be 4 year old. I was meaning to only have 5 children coming and I have 14. I’m not sure how that happened.
… whoever invented the internet that Facebook wasn’t around when I was a teenager or in my twenties.
… when trying to answer one of my 5 year old’s questions. They’re hard. And at the moment, very focused on geography which is not my strongest topic.
**Panics slightly when trying to think what my strongest topic actually is. Do I even have one? Shit!**
… saying our goodbyes when we leave London.
… which pub to go to on Thursday night. We have limited time to do these things, so it’s a surprisingly big decision.
… of a proper Australian BBQ with all the family there. Heaven! Ooh, and regular ones thereafter – with friends too! Yay!
Over to you if you fancy it! Finish this sentence, “Right now I’m…”
