Thursday 31 May 2012: Hands
So today was my first day off i'nt new house and I had great plans to get things sorted and straightened out (not that they're that unstraight but there's still a few boxes around the place) however I feel like I've been chasing my tail somewhat.
I took Bob to the Doc's to get some cream for his eczema then I came home and faffed and then went out with the intention of buying gingerbread men ingredients, then I remembered that I was supposed to be buying postcards to invite the neighbours round on Saturday and that would mean going into town. So I dragged Ali all around town trying to find just the right kind of postcards and failed. Then dashed to Morrisons for ingredients, by the time we got back it was almost 2pm and then I realised that the gingerbread men cutters were still in someone's, garage along with my cake tins, so no gingerbread men could be made and certainly no Victoria Sponge:( instead we made thousands of gingerbread stars, and then suddenly it was time to pick Bob up and I hadn't even taken the terminally ill car to the garage!!
I am now completely shattered having hustled the boys through dinner dragged them both to Bob's swimming lesson and put them to bed. I figure its Simon's turn to cook so I've left him with some frozen potato wedges, peas and lambsteaks to sort out, he's now asking me where everything is in the kitchen!
