Being a dedicated follower of fashion,
I have found myself this week under the weather with
a common cold!
Not even a posh one!
I think I should have shares in these....
Anyhow, it stopped my trip to see Erica James ( :-( I was in bed) it got gradually worse,
and the boys got used to seeing me surrounded by tissues and having a
big red hooter!
My lovely Mum though insisted we went round for Sunday lunch yesterday,
so after we cancelled mini rugby, sorry boys,
we went to the parents house and gave my fabby Mummy her presents.
We gave her...
Glittery fairy cakes!
Now I was going to be sneaky,
saying how we had been baking together like good families do,
but alas not!
How could i lie to you?
They were bought from Sainsbuys, ready to ice, for 99p!
If it makes you feel better they tasted horrid!
I didn't tell the boys that though, bless 'em.
(they had full control over the colours I have to add! ugh!)
I also bought her....
My garden has 2 lovely bushes of hydrangea,
and as you know, my house used to be my Mum's family home,
so I thought she may like her own again.
It is a running joke about how my Dad has sport on ALL the TVs in the house,
so I have started getting films for her to watch, and ones that we can share!
So although her pressies didn't break the bank, I had tried to think of things that were just for her, not for the house and not just for the sake of it.
Although, I add,
my choices may have been better if I hadn't had such a big red nose!
Yes, back to chatting about me now ha ha!
My fabby Mum had organised things for the boys to give to me,
secret whisperings down the phone last week, led to shouts of
'Don't come in, not yet'
So even though, that morning,
when I was given a beautiful painting and poem by one son,
an IOU and 'I left it in my tray at school Mummy!!!' by the other son.
(all at 6.15AM!!! On a Sunday!!!)
I was cheered up greatly when I was given....
And the card,
the one left in the tray...
It made it eventually!
And my red hooter?.....
It is a little calmer, if I stand in the shade!
Love Claire. xxx
P.S. Please don't think of thoughts about me trying to
dig for sympathy with this post, snot is snot, we all have it!
Hee hee! x
