After a hard slog at her SATS belle reluctantly wanted to craft tonight. Her words were "my brain needs a rest". Sure it does honey afterall, you need to save yourself for your Masters Degree in Quatum Physics!
Lauren 1 and Lauren 2 wanted free reign of my craft room to make things purdy and fine. Between devouring all things with e-factors and running off to the loo and cuddling the piggies they manged to make two stinking cards in two stinking hours. But their creativity flowed and mine edged on the ebb of their excitement. I love Tuesdays in our house - its full of creativity with the little club we have here.
I took the girls home and belle and i ventured shopping "supermarket" style. Oh the joy of this ritual we have twice a week (for the rest of my life) fills me with horror. I hate it and I hate putting the shopping away at the end as well. I hate having to re-arrange the fridge to bring old stuff to the front and new stuff to the back and I detest wasteful packaging. I was talking to a shop assistant tonight and wondered why a tin of mexican chilli beans had been reduced as it was in the normal selling aisle. he said it had a dent in the tin. I KID YOU NOT, it was a teeny weeny dent but it had 20p off! Whilst the bargain was mine it got me thinking about tins and waste. With baked beans being a supermarkets biggest seller in this country, would it not be brilliant for the environment for a bean machine instore? The turnaround of beans would mean a fresh supply everyday and you fill up re-usable container. Or indeed sell beans in recycleable plastic packaging? Im so angry about tinned food and yet i use it. Hypocrite yes, but pee'd off with lack of though in packaging yes.
Anyway, belle beelined for the sweety aisle and I said she could choose a treat or two (Spiders definately off the menu tonight!!). She bought a couple of packs of those "millions". you tried em.....love em! I spied these. I remember these being called sweet cigarettes as a kid but over the years politically correct alice band wearing mommas put paid to the name and now they are called candy sticks.
I LOVE THESE so much but sadly my teeth are not a calciummy as they were back then and almost felt my jaw breaking as I munched them. These treats were a bit naugty as I have vowed to reduce the amount of processed food I eat for a few week (besides cereal). cutting out white bread certainly makes me feel so less sluggish and having cut my tea intake to one a day is making a difference too.
