This week I’m grateful for:
- Cleaning out the desktop folder and finding this half written blog post – Ella: “Is it tomorrow today?’’ Me: “No, it’s tomorrow tomorrow. It’s today today. But when tomorrow comes, it’ll be today again.’’ Long silence… Then: “oh’’.
- And another: After cooking one piece of toast too many for Princess Ella, The Bloke in The Shed offers the other to me, knowing I’m always hungry (breastfeeding is sucking me dry!). He asks what I’d like on it. ‘’Marmalade jam, please,’’ I say. He heads to the fridge and a few seconds later I hear: “Is that the same as apricot conserve?’’ Me: ‘’Ah, no. That would be apricot.’’ He raises his eyebrows. Then the penny drops. “Yeah, right.’’ And who’s got baby brain?
- Lastly, on a serious note, tomorrow I have a super hot date with a beautician and some facial, pedicure and manicure tools. That’s right, no children. I can’t even begin to imagine what that will be like. So, my only question is: “is it tomorrow today?’’ If not, HURRY UP TOMORROW! (PS. I’m using a voucher I got for Mother’s Day – yes, Mother’s Day – that had already gone past its expiry date. Thankfully the fabulous salon owner is happy to accept my voucher anyway!).
