Thanks for the love and well wishes. Im on the mend. Amazingly it looks like I will survive with no permanent damage.
No funny stuff around here today. its been down right horrid. Esp for this guy. He and another kid collided at school. its turninga nice yellow colour now, but that is the least of our worries. Our cat may not make it through the night, and if it does there is still a fair chance that she may have to be put down tomorrow morning.
If you have cat and a front loader washing machine - double and triple check first. ALWAYS, cause I can never take back the carelessness of today, and the pain I have put our Rusty through. Not to mention breaking the heart of that sweet boy above in finding her the way we did.
keep your fingers crossed for us.
Something that may be shocking to some.
Ahem. I have a sweet tooth.
I know. You are all so shocked right. It may time to recover.
And lately I cant cope. There has been an abundance of christmas cook books and magazines floating around my house.
The rockstar has a slight addiction to cooking a christmas dinner. We go overboard every year and then always say we wont next year.
But we do anyway.
He does a baked ham, a rolled stuffed pork roast, a turkey and trimmings galore.
I get starters and desserts. Oh and my mums potato salad. Every year.
I love cooking mini things and sweets, well recently you learnt of my sweet tooth, so now it all makes sense.
This year there will be some sort of seafood ( prawns and oysters of some kind normally, and maybe a crab salad), and just what ever mini thing I come across I want to try, im thinking a sweet onion tart.
But then we get to the best bit of all,
( I promise you the shock will wear off soon).
But here I where I need help. I have planned
- a marscarpone cake
- my vanilla and rockmelon icecream, ( maybe some green apple gelato for adults as well)
- fruit salad
Im thinking pie, though I may be being swayed by the abundance of pie falling across the american sites. And it needs be able to be baked ahead. The evil husband has the oven covered.
I need suggestions. Please.
Ps I really hope that no one will feel any differntly about me now. Please I am still the person I once was.
PPS now I am really feeling the need for , well, truthfully, all of the above.
We like to paint in my house.
We like to paint special pictures for our loved ones.
We like to paint with different mediums.
One particular child wanted to paint this week.
His urge to paint was strong.
He did it in secret.
A secret painting just for me to find.
He used only one colour.
In a very exculsive medium.
With his fingers for the brush.
And he painted it from the very Bottom of his love for me.
The painting was on the wall.
The one colour was brown.
This is my sister. Her name is Megan. We Call her Moo. She lives very far away and I recently got to see her for a bitty bit. I miss her lots. Though am slightly annoyed she gets to be the pretty one ( not to mention is still in her twenties and gets to travel to places like Ibiza for work.).
See that umbrella, she had just finished using it as a weapon/wand on that cute kid of mine in the background.
To be fair that cute kid of mine in the background, Im pretty sure, had just cast Avada Kedavra on her.
Thats just how our family rolls.
Ps See that umbrella, Im pretty sure she will want to use that as a weapon on me for posting a picture of her here.
PPs Sucked in Moo, you live in England and you cant reach me.
PPPs Mum im sorry I told my sister sucked in..
