A quiet day in the house today. Kids playing, me climbing the ironing pile and S lying along couch watching Mr Bean.  Kids decide to pretend to be making a film with the video recorder on an old phone and call their film 'Mr Bean gets stuck in a kiddies hole'.  Have no idea what it was about but am assuming it was something innocent....

At least the white stuff is gone. It's actually a balmy 11 degrees today and feels just like July. Wind, then rain and then wind and rain together. Am thinking of firing up the barbecue.....

Put on half a pound at Slimming Class the other night. Oh joy, this was not the way it was meant to be. However the old (booze obsessed) leader has disappeared, (am yet to find  out why) and now we have a more focused replacement. Wish I was more focused, not doing well at all, back to the negative thinking. Must try harder. No more Minstrels....

Realise I have developed a fixation for a certain children's TV presenter who is on telly between 8 and 8.30 in the morning.  Never miss Deadly 60 and can't be the only mum on the planet drooling over Steve Backshall as I dole out the Rice Crispies. Great programme, there's not many on CBBC that have a hot guy with no shirt on on a regular basis. Kids are beginning to get suspicious. Think it has something to do with the fact I am hoovering the carpet with my tongue every morning.  It seems to be on a loop as well as they constantly play episode after episode.  Doubt if I will get away with that as an excuse for the kids being late for school. 'Sorry Mrs S, the kids are late because I was watching Steve Backshall wrestling an alligator with no shirt on'...... nope not a hope.....
