As you can see I overindulged this weekend - JUST what I needed! Of course I am paying for it today as I struggle to zip up my jeans - but I started the week on a healthy note of fruit salad for breakfast (okay, and a cappucino if you must know!) so hopefully by Friday my sins may be slightly less obvious,lol!
I had a really good time with my kids & hubby this weekend & consequently got NO scrapping done, except, of course, if any of you are Stacy Julian followers, you'll know then that I got ALOT acheived & was actually "scrapbooking" most of the weekend - because I was creating wonderful memories. I've realised this year that there's not much point staying home to scrapbook every spare minute if it means missing out on the here & now with my loved ones, as they are the reason that I scrapbook in the first place!
I spend Friday afternoon at Gateway with my youngest son Reilly. He was off to a party on Saturday (back at Gateway to the Bowling Alley) so we needed to buy birthday presents for his best friends - twin boys. By the way, that link I've given you is to Wikipedia & contains information that you probably don't know about Gateway - even if you live right here in Durban - so it's worth a click!
Reilly & I had a hilarious conversation on the way. It went something like this...
Reilly:- "Mum - who's that fat cooker?"
(visualizing a giant Argar)
Reilly:- "Oh yes - Nigella something..."
(oh - he actually means a person!)
Me:- "Um, okay?"
(surprised that he remembers the name of a celebrity chef)
Reilly:- "Ummm - she said, in a Graham Norton interview, that she likes hairy men!"
(Reilly starts almost every sentence with umm as he has a speech impediment)
Me:- "Why on earth were you watching the Graham Norton show???"
(it not exactly being a kid's program - hilarious as it is!)
Reilly:-"Ummm, because of Dad!"
Reilly:-"Yes! She likes hairy men!"
Me:-"Okaaaaaaaay - and you're telling me this because......??????"
Reilly;- "Ummm - well...because I'm hairy!"
Well that did it for me & I spent the whole weekend laughing. Kids...they crack me up!
