This is she, drinking some of the extra pint of full fat milk a day in her new regime for the next 6 months.
Except in this house we call it Maggy.
Because that was what she called it when she was a toddler.
Not milk or milky
She is drinking through those nifty Nesquick straws that are filled with chocolate balls. You suck the milk through the straw and the bally thingies flavour the milk on the way through. Coolio.Maggy, ey?
Its still makes me laugh today.
She has a supplement called Calogen added to it and she doesn't even notice the difference. I love that she loves milk. And she knows if its semi skimmed milk because she thinks it tastes rank. Ive sometimes had to give her it when we have run out of full fat. She point blank refuses to drink half fat milk. Blech... because full fat makes me want to vom too. We are totally like Jack Spratt.
Lets pray that it fattens that little waif and stray up over the coming months.
Today I finished up some layouts for Bellaboo's guest design team for October. It was full of whimsical whimsiness and a reet treat to cut into.
Tomorrow Im going to spend the whole day with my dear friend Lee. She was my Sergeant when I was in the RAF, at the time when I left - we have rarely lost touch in the 14 years we have been apart. She is the most wonderful person I know (I say that with conviction) with the purest heart. She only lives an hour away which is too far to pop round just for coffee (cry cry) but near enough for treat days together. Lee makes the most amazing indian food and she always makes me extra to take home (he heeee). So tomorrow we are going to craft and eat - what better way to spend a Friday?
Then on Saturday I am over at Port Sunlight craft fair with my crazy friend Jane and her two charming girls (Lady K and Little Miss C). Belle would just die of boredom - she hates craft shopping.......no child of mine, ey? Then my sister is coming over on Saturday night with her kidlets and I think we are surprising her with a trip to the lights at Blackpool. We go every year and its is very tacky but it also such a fun thing to do. AND THEN, if all this fun stuff wasn't enough, Mark was offered (FINALLY) a permanent contract at the place of work that he has been made redundant from twice in the past year. **Breathes deeply and raises her arms to the heavens in a welcoming embrace**
It truly is a wonderful end to a very sad and upsetting week. Hope I can pass on some of our luck to you xx
