Last week was a blur … we landed back in Sydney – from our weekend in the Hunter Valley – on Sunday arvo and headed straight off for an early dinner at a friend’s (couldn’t cancel, I’d stood them up twice previously, eeek!).
I could barely keep my eyes open on their couch.
As you read this we’re out of town again on another getaway (cue the violins). More about that when I get back.
This gadding about is all very well but nothing is getting DONE. No grocery shopping, no washing, no cleaning …
And next weekend won’t be much better as it’s the festival of the eldest’s first decade on earth.
DO NOT ASK me when I will find the time to bake dalek cupcakes.
Anyways, here’s how last week went down …
>> I reminisced about my glorious weekend in the Hunter Valley in Stumbling Distance.
>> I mused on the attractiveness of red-headed men and discrimination they face in Red Hot.
>> Speaking of redheads … I waxed lyrical about how I love my quirky eldest in Odd Bods rule, OK?
>> And on Friday I enthused that Sandra Bullock’s Thighs Just Keep on Giving. (While also revealing I have a weird crush on a retired astronaut with a ‘stache.)
