My word cloud t-shirt arrived today and it is lovely. Lovely quality and lovely to have it. If i feel rubbish i can look down and there is my life, right there where i can see it and be reminded of my mission statement. And of course, i do have an excellent showcase for it, so it is at a perfect angle for upsidedown reading 😀
Girls were out again and Amelie and Josie were tired and floppy and spent most of the day vegging. I got a lot of cuddles from Amelie and Josie mainly pootled about. Josie made me laugh today; Maddy did an oil pastel picture of LWW and then left the oil pastels out. I came back in to the room to find Josie on the table, scribbling all over it with a flesh coloured one. She took one look at me and started to cry!!!! 😆
Had a bizarre Magic Roundabout moment today – i put it on, pressed “play film “and Zebedee bounced over with a big red button and switched off my dvd player! In the end i had to start it using scene selection. I felt extremely picked on! And he made me eat a biscuit through sheer stress 😆
Fran and maddy are learning Little Mermaid songs; maddy is trying so hard to read the word sheets. We’ve all just done a singalong to them, helping her spot some words and read more Danny. Gosh i love that book.
Amelie has spent a lot of the day making presents for Buttercup, whose absence from her immediate vicinity she is increasingly intolerant about. It must be all of 6 weeks 🙄 I’ve sat open mouthed at my computer for much of the day, alternately rolling my eyes at rants and shutting them against the influx of work. All of which is excellent and exciting and so on but all a bit terrifyingly serious! Well no, the rants weren’t excellent, but well, sometimes you just have to walk away before you blow a hole in your own existence.
And then i got to wondering about customer service, on the back of the fact that you can buy a multi-region dvd player online but not from a shop thanks to someone’s mindless decision on how to complicate life. And i’m starting to wonder if there are many businesses left with an altruistic thought towards customers left? Just a thought about making life easier for the people who pay them for things. Increasingly i’m of the opinion that the people like that are the people running OSC shops from home and that the highstreet will re-emerge online as people get more and more sick of being treated like a number by huge nationals. I’d rather deal with me, if i’m honest, than somebody like Tesco, who sell everything but won’t remember that your daughter loves everything to do with seahorses.
But of course, what really mattered was the soul food that was Kris turning up and us getting to natter away in the strange but enjoyable bliss that was 5 less kids than normal.
