The amount of times I have heard (even said) this us un-beeeeee-leeeeeeeeeeev.
We go shopping for new knix and sox for Belle. (Maybe a lil something new for me too ;))
Pick up her new u-niff-orm (sniff sniff).
And we end up with a Wii to boot?
So much fun has been had in this lil ole house as we cosy up in the sub zero temperatures of August???!!!! Im going to cancel the gym membership at this rate cuz this Wii thing is blummin hard work!
It was whilst we were out that the enormity of todays anniversary of P. Diana's death hit me.
We shop in "The Galleries" mall and on our way through we saw a pile of flowers on the floor. And I looked above the flowers and there was a plaque commemortaing P. Diana opening the shopping mall in 1991. Gulp. I came over all emotional and filled up. I didnt cry. Just welled up. I remember exactly how my day went when her death came to the throes of the media. I remember the radio boycotting all pop music and playing sombre tunes, the newsreaders on the TV wearing black and whole of the UK in a monotone hum. I was really saddened by it, I went to London on the day of her funeral to pay respects to somebody who I really wanted to meet and just say hello to and be a teeny part of her life. The day after her funeral I worked the phones in the BT tower taking calls from the public making donations to the Princess of Wales memorial fund. I was on the news every half an hour that day as Sky news took a cheeky clip of me answering the phones (unbeknownst to me!). But even so, the sadness of the event really shaped a portion of my memories from 1997. Sniff.
10 Years though? It really feels like yest.
So now I am watching the BB final and Liam is just out being interviewed. Belle and I want the Twinnies to win (poo, Brian win... still...we love him too). It dreadful Emily was told she couldnt go and therefore not invited to tonights eviction. She is being used as a scapegoat in light of celeb big brothers shenanigans. We all saw what she did and said those feteful few days and Im sure you have made your judgment and could see that Emily was in no way raucuous, malicious, nasty, scheming and trouble worthy. Boooo to Endemol for making things seem a million times worse than what they are. Drives me crazy that a slip of the tongue could lead to so much. Emily is not a racist. I know this. But for how Endemol are treating her, it is like they are branding her one anyway. Grrrrrrrrrr.
Gosh, what a mish mash entry tonight.
I'll leave you with this mini paper kit - perfect for cardmaking and didge. She is called "Betty loves Adrain". I loves her.
You can get her here.
