Forgive me blog buddies for I have been absent this week and not commenting on your blogs nearly often enough. I have learned that while you may feel fabulous schlepping round home recovering from whooping cough , when you return to work where schlepping is frowned upon you must run run run all day and when you get home you are very very tired. And guess what? You're not allowed to wear your pyjamas to work! I have also been busy turning another year older.
Mr. P is a wonderful man but on special occasions he always forgets important things like cake or celebratory cards. Last time I had a cake I didn't have to organise myself was in about 1987.
This week Mr. P bought a cake. And a card. Without prompting or reminders or hints being dropped. I almost died from shock.
|Apparently my name is Wife.|
So slack tea tonight is the birthday cake we should have eaten Tuesday but which we ignored because we were all too stuffed from eating out at the local steak house to be bothered with. I suspect that will be the first and last time Mr. P buys me birthday cake since even I couldnt be bothered eating this on my actual birthday. Only because I had about 1/2 a kilo of steak and 2 pounds of curly fries at Hog's Breath. Birthday girls dont have to eat vegetables or salad. It's the golden rule of birthdays.
And apparently you can eat what you like during your birthday week and not put on one ounce of weight. That's good news isn't it because I'm halfway through this cake.
And in case you're interested, I turned 36 this birthday having decided when I turned 40 I would start counting backwards. I cant wait to be 30 at 50!
Mmmmmm mandarin and passionfruit cake. Early dinner. I have sewing to do.
Earlier in the week, I showed you what I got up to last weekend, and asked for guesses as to what I was planning to do with the picture frame. The correct answer is of course, a Bulletin Board (which we call a pin up board here in Australia). 4 of you guessed the correct answer. I assigned each of you a number and video called Miss P who was in the loungeroom (yep we're pretty lazy ) and asked her to choose a number between 1 and 4. She chose number 3 which is Deb from Quiltgal.
So Deb, if you email me your snail mail addy I'll pop your parcel in the post! Congratulations.
Oooohhh and I got a webcam and skype for my birthday,among many other things. Email me your skype address and we can chat. I'm so technological now!
