That was a busy week for me - training and site visits meant I had to work four days instead of three, and was in the office for a total of two hours. Now the Spousal Unit has taken Noddie to her swimming lessons and to get me a fabulous Mothers' Day present (or he will if he knows what's good for him), and one for his mother too. I was going to say, not so important, but just because I can't stand the woman doesn't mean she should miss out.
The house is quiet, my tea is steaming gently and my saved-up-for-the weekend dark rye toast is crunchy and good.
My mum is coming down on the train this arvo so we have to clean the bathroom, vacuum, and attempt to conceal the normal squalor in the study coz it's also the guest room. Tomorrow will be a huge day - not only are we running in the morning and having the family (including M-I-L, don't say I don't put in) over for dinner, but I am determined to finally present my dear mama with the four mothers' day cards which I have bought over the years and completely failed to either post or hand deliver.
Prior to all that - in about twenty minutes, as soon as I stop faffing around on the computer - I will be finding out whether this is my new best friend.A chick bike seat! Following the example of the invincible GGtI, I have invested in some kindness to my ladyparts. Will this be the answer? We shall see.
More anon, arrangers of excellent presents for your mothers!
No need to thank me. I'm here to help.
