I don't normally graze on junk food much whilst Im working but today I had the incredible munchies. My fave heart attack food is walkers plain crisps and jaffas washed down with tea. Mark and belle went to see Cars at the cinema whilst I finished off various odds and ends and deadlines. He had made a tomato and chilli soup for lunch but put one too many chilli's in and it was like spooning in molten lava. Pheeeeeeeew! And cos I didnt eat that liquid fire I sure had the muncho's by 3pm. I was in heaven and now, at 11pm I have weighed myself and I have put on 23 pounds. But Im happy and full of jaffa-rey goodness, high on sugar and buzzing from the carbs. Is it too late to go for a jog?
Ellie's room is almost done but here is the "before" picture. This, I may add was the picture taken mid "sort". Her room is normally quite tidy as various scrappers will tell you. We have had loads of them stay in her high captains bed from Sue to Jo and to Natalie - the Ed of The scrap mag. Ellie has proudly shown Anna, Jenny, Sarah and Julie around her room but did she offer to open the cupboards busting at the seams? No - you see my Belle is a little minx and in her bed yesterday we found 36 teddies stuffed under her pillow, down the side and at the end of the bed. The poor lamb just loves her beanies so much, she cant bear to put them in a cupboard. Oh no, in the cupboard go educational books, beads, stationary, clothes, school stuff and little bits that fly out of the cupboard at 3 million miles an hour and right into your eyeballs, up your nose and down your pants.
But I dont mind. Thats why being a mum (and tidier-upper) is just part and parcel of loving her.
