As football is on the tellybox which means husband and football mad 8 year old are otherwise away with the fairies until it is over, I’ve taken to the blog to get away from it all.
The 4 year old isn’t bothered about football when it’s on, so he’s currently sat colouring in his Cbeebies magazine and practicing his writing.
As for me? Twitter, music playing on the cheesy local radio station, bit of writing and chain drinking Earl Grey tea, and that’s me sorted. Well, it’s not like I’m needed anywhere else so I’ve escaped while I’ve got the chance!
Is it too early to start watching Christmas films?! I’ve got an urge to watch Elf. Well, if the radio station is allowed to play Stop The Cavalry like it did yesterday, then I’m allowed to Elf watch.
It’s actually quite nice to not have to go anywhere this weekend, as the last two weekends we have been out, what with husband’s birthday and lots of shots and vodka drinking (note to self – you are too old to do shots, get a grip because you feel shocking the next day. You’re an old lady now, you know.) Even if the children are at their grandparents overnight and you get a great big lie in, you need to stick to water and tea because you’re a shot wuss.
So tonight, it’s a case of staying in, maybe watching Elf, or failing that there’s the X Factor and I’m a Celebrity Get me out of Here! on, and you know what? I’m looking forward to it. Now where’s my slippers and my hot chocolate?!
