...We have been enjoying Miniscule.
My absolute favourite is the outdoor spider with the long legs
but I really want to squish that wretched, irritating ladybird...
...my first-born baby turned 9.
Happy, happy birthday, my beautiful big boy...
...The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
broke my heart...
...We booked our first Vegas show for our suddenly-not-so-far-away USA holiday...
...I remembered when Tom Cruise's first marriage ended
and I thought (as a single 21 year old) "Yay"
(a purely youthful and hormonal response)
I remembered when his second marriage ended
and I thought (as a happily married 32 year old) "Boo"
(Just when we thought that it was a Hollywood marriage
that was going to work)
Now that his third marriage has ended
I am thinking (as a judgemental, harsh 43 year old) "Care?"
(Don't get me wrong- it is a shame, especially there is a child involved
but really I have never felt the same about Tom since he jumped all over Oprah's couch
and dissed Brooke Shields for taking medication to help with her post-natal depression)
(As an aside, it is interesting to note
that each of Tom's marriages have ended when his wives were 33.
Scientology conspiracy theory anyone?)
(Honeysuckle Vine beret- Janice Garett)
...it has been about knitting hats
for cold winter days...
...My 7 year old roped me into being his partner for a little 1000 piece puzzle
for the weekend...
then more or less disappeared...
apart from turning up to announce what a great job we were doing...
Lucky that I love him.
