reasons to be cheerful
January 28, 2011 § 2 Comments
1. It’s 8pm. Urchins are in bed. Favourite cat is on knee. Curry is heating up. Pyjamas are on. Mad Men boxset has had sellophane removed. If I were a smoker I’d be lighting up a Hamlet
2. OH returns from week-long business trip tomorrow, bearing wondrous gifts in Clarins-shaped packages. (The ‘buy me some Clarins’ hint lacked subtlety I’ll admit)
3. It’s been rumoured that on Sunday I may be invited to participate in a special event, marked up and down the land in bedrooms large and small. This ‘lie in’ ritual has apparently some incredible healing properties. If that and the Clarins don’t sort these pregnancy-hormone spots out, I may be forced to invest in a balaclava for the good of the neighbourhood.
