I have been resorting to my old blonde ways recently.
There was the incident of the Parker pen in the tumble dryer which ruined a whole dark wash and the pen and wasn't too good for the aesthetics of the dryer! I have managed to get the pen out of the fleece type clothes....so really when all is tolled the only thing I couldn't wear in public again is now a set of painting trousers! I was remarking to my friend (while painting a bathroom in the newly donated painting trousers) how annoying it was that it was a grown up load that had been damaged, as Heidi gets through her clothes so much more quickly. She was amused to point out that had it been a load of Heidi's clothes there wouldn't have been a pen in the pocket!
I also skidded through a red light on ice last week, have lost my beep beep thing for the car, and my USB key! I know that the USB is in the house somewhere, but is makes no sense that between the kitchen and the basement (ie at the door to the basement, down the stairs and to the bottom that I could misplace something so important. Perhaps giving it to the 18 month old to carry was not the smartest move, but I don't see how she lost it! She was sat on my hip from time of being given the key to being put down at the bottom.
We are to have our first curry party tomorrow, so I am busy letting sauce rest for tomorrow for the chicken curry and marinading more chicken for the korma. I've found a quick and easy recipe for the Bombay pots so should be ok for the morning. Check me out I even made a list of the jobs to do before and after church. The friends coming over have declared that the best thing the British empire did is give curry to the masses...so here's hoping I am going to achieve something great!
And.....we started Christmas shopping today, but really the only people who should be getting excited are our relatives 3 and under. Well we have only started!
