You may have seen big brother last night?
Well I wasn't going to watch it as I was expecting visitors.
Instead I had planned a bath as it started before my friends, Traci and Kiesha arrived. So I had a bath for like 1 minute as I was rushing when the doorbell rang. Traci and Kiesha had landed safely with pet guinea pig, Milo, in tow.
Then the phone rang.
It was Mandy.
I said to Mandy that I couldnt talk long as my guests had arrived and I felt dreadful as we had so much to plan for our events at Scrap Trap and Scrap Camp. But she said she had a confession to make.
WHAT? I though the worst and guessed she had pulled out of our events. But no. She wanted to explain to me why she had told me that Emily (her daughter - the girl pictured above) had moved to London. Mandy had initially told me she was starting a new college course. But in fact she was ringing me to tell me that Emily was on BIG BROTHER.
OMG - I was screaming so loudly. So happy, so confused, so frightened - worried that Emily might get up to naughties (as you do, on big brother). I am hoarse from excitement. I couldn't believe it but proof of the pud came when Emily exited the car in her "fine pins" glory.
The jury is out already on Emily and personally I think she is fantastic. Level headed, grounded, educated, moody (!!), girly. Mandy has brought her 3 daughters up with incredible values. They are all so terribly gorgeous and you may remember these pictures I took of them last year.As gossip is mandatory with BB and Emily shown in the edits of the producers I hope she goes far. Maybe because I have met her a couple of times, it makes it more of a rally round. I will, along with Mandy and her family, get to see things about Emily that we may not like but we are human and we do human things and react to situations created especially to cause an extreme reaction (ain't big brother a sod for doing that?!)
Wouldn't you say these two babies looked the same? Huh? So I clean out the fridge, clean the cupboards and wipe the kitchen surfaces with what I thought was dettol surface cleaner. Hmmm, new fragrance I thought. Tra la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Clean, clean , clean, tum ti tum ti tum.
Only when I replaced the bottle back in the cleaning cupboard did I realise I had cleaned the whole kitchen with window spray.
Me no likey that thought.
So around the kitchen again I go with dettol spraying twice as much to ensure the windowlene is gone and we are dettol covered.
Im a dettol freak, ok? Just not a bottle spotter!
