No card today, just a warm wish to all of you for a very happy, healthy and creative year in 2011
I am still sniffling and sneezing my way around London. Yesterday I spent time with Kiki and Monty and we went to Toys R US to spend the Christmas gift money that was burning a hole in Kiki's pocket. As we drew up she said 'Carphone Warehouse is next door to Toys R Us Ma, that's very handy isn't it?'
'well yes, if you want to buy a new phone and some toys at the same time, it is very handy' I replied
'and a new car' she pointed out 'you could buy a new car, and a phone and some toys'
How on earth do you explain to a six year old that Carphone Warehouse doesn't actually sell cars.....................that's right, move on swiftly to the next subject.
Here they are, clambering in and out of a very pink princess playhouse at Toys R Us
New year resolutions? I always swing between making far too many totally unrealistic resolutions that are broken by the end of the first week in January, or thinking 'nah, I won't bother, I never keep them anyway'. This year I seem to be in a resolution making mood. As a lot of them involve housework in one way or another, I doubt they will even last a week. 'Oops' I will think as I clean the oven for the first time in the year (in April or thereabouts) 'I resolved to do this job every week this year'
HAPPY NEW YEAR, MAY ALL YOUR RESOLUTIONS BE REALISTIC
