Today was the day, we have been waiting for this day for a long long time. I was up at 6.30am, washed my hair, cleaned my teeth extra well, painstakingly applied makeup in a way to try and make me look like I have made no effort and always loo naturally fresh faced. At 6.30am I have a tendency to look a little like the Gruffalo with no hairy wart on the end of my nose (it’s on my chin for those that are interested) so it takes a lot of make up to make it look like I am not wearing any. My outfit was chosen the night before, and nails were filed and toenail polish applied. By 7.45 I was as ready as I would ever be – oh yes I was ready for my first ever school run!
Sweet lord, it has been a long time since I have ventured anywhere near a shopping centre with the bambinos in tow. However today proved unavoidable so beautiful baby was tucked into the buggy and twin one and two were issued with several rules and regulations about behaviour, running off and inappropriate bogey licking and off we went.
No feeling like it…
You know how life is never like the movies and sometimes well wouldn’t it be nice if life just bore some resemblance to a disney film. Well I have found my slice of the cinematic pie. Try this exercise at home and see if you can also get a bit of movie magic.
Car Journeys in the big red bus.
Car journeys, I used to love them. In fact at uni I was known to love them so much that I would go for a pootle. Pootle being grab a friend jump in the car and drive around randomly until you get lost then find something to do. It was on my pootles that I enjoyed a day at a wild owl sanctuary, found several fab country pubs and went rock climbing.
