Tuesday 27 March 2012: Show me your freckles...
760/365: ... I said. And then his head bobbed up at the camera, pulling a stupid face. And this is what you get as today's blip. Ta da!
You can't really see his freckles in this though - but the sun is definitely bringing them out. Possibly it's the general dirt and filth hiding them? Possibly it's just generally impossible for him to stop still long enough to show them to anyone. At the time, he was racing up and down the new path in the veggie patch on his bike, winding Maddy up as she tried to make something or other... and being very VERY noisy.
Maddy, on the other hand, lurched between whinging and then deciding that she would plant some runner beans. Which she then did... and then asked me for a label for them. By the time I'd given her a label, she'd decided that a single periwinkle flower in every pot would do as a label and I didn't have the heart to tell her otherwise. ;o)
Other than that stuff, it's been a work day again today. Still got the residual migraine left over. Managed to cram in 7 meetings. Then home - and an evening of coughing as I can't seem to shift this flipping cold either. Aaaargh! How can I have a cold when the weather's so lovely?!?!? 'Fortunately', with all those meetings I didn't get to be outside enough to spread my germs any further than my office. And the only time I got to experience the yummy sun, was getting into my car on the way home and having that annual realisation that hot weather = boiling hot tin can of a car to drive home in. Wouldn't it have been nice to just spend the day properly outdoors? I reckon it would.
When I rule the world (not if... when...), if ever it's a lovely day like today it will immediately be declared a Bank Holiday and the Army will do an emergency drop of ice cream to everyone's houses. People who look smug in convertibles will have their wheels confiscated. And there will be scones with cream and jam for tea.
PS I also got a letter from the tax office telling me I'd underpaid last year which means I owe them money this year
PPS When I rule the world, the tax office will only be allowed to send you out birthday cards with book tokens in. And no tax demands.
PPPS And you'll be able to cancel Ocado orders an hour before they're due because you forgot to cancel them earlier in the week... unlike now. Whoops!
