Free Food in Costco, An Uncomfortable Zumba Class, My Gift at Plumbing and Flat Batteries

Phew! What a week and the Christmas build-up hasn't even started yet.

Last week started beautifully having coffee with probably the most genuinely kindest individuals I have ever known.  It is rare to meet anyone who has a heart of gold rather than the 99% who pretend to do so but occasionally one does surface where despite adversity they try to see the light at the end of the tunnel and by doing so make your life even richer.

Morphing Into A Human, Celebrating A Birthday and Hiding in the Loos at Rugby

Since my youngest has started reception at school allowing a few hours of me time I have suddenly turned into a domestic goddess frightening my husband in the process.  This has not entailed me turning into Nigella Lawson, licking chocolate seductively off spoons, no.  I have started actually folding clothes from the clothes mountain and more frighteningly, cooking!  Not the usual fishfingers with frozen chips and some vegetables to make myself feel good about myself.  I have started making soups and casseroles and they don't taste awful.

Being A Governor Means Form Filling, Teasing Makes Me Psychotic & Birthday Chocolates for the Allergic

I have been a parent governor now for just over a year and I am now only starting to actually understand what is going on and how I can be the most useful.  I've realised that the way to do this is to fill in lots of forms because the teachers are too busy and get nominated to do a massive fund raiser which involves a lot of headaches, politics and stress.

After brooching the subject with my husband of doing the fund raiser in which he has forbidden me I am now going to do what all good wives do and that is to completely ignore him and do it anyway out of obligation to the school.

No one Has Supermarket Etiquette, Being a Bad Mother and The "Breast Is Best" Brigade is Out In Force Again

Being a mummy, my favourite time of the week is Saturday.  I enjoy this as I can offload the kids onto my husband whilst I spend quality time to myself.  I make any excuse to go out even if it is for just half an hour and have even taken up the exercise to really escape.

November, what a funny month

November for me is a funny month.  After the excitement of October where I celebrate my birthday and turn into the Princess I secretly hide 364 days a year, October contains my favourite holiday - Halloween!
