Stumbling bleary eyed from my bed to the bathroom yesterday morning I scooped up my toothbrush on the way.
Once I got into the bathroom and went to apply toothpaste to it I realised it was my hairbrush. So close and yet so far away. At least no one saw me.
I’ve got a few little photos for your delectation. Nothing exciting, just a few happy snaps on my phone.
First: Lashes in an er…..eclectic mix of clothes for her dance lesson. The socks with pictures of chips on them looks particularly fetching with the satin dance shoes, I think.
Remember when we had all that rain a few months ago? Well, it’s back with a vengeance. We’ve had two months worth of rain in two days. Buildings will be falling down again soon at this rate. Even the dog is fed up of it all. Don’t you think he looks a bit like ET with his towel over his head?
Three year olds shouldn’t be allowed out with cameras, capturing evidence of me not working!! Oh. It was my phone she was using. Damn it. Here I am – ahem – working really, really hard at the wedding fayre last Sunday. Well, the fashion show was on and you have to take your breaks when you can. Munki has learnt how to use Instagram. Doesn’t she know it’s hard? When did kids get so clever? She is showing some real talent at photography. I’ve never seen a three year old frame a photograph before or pan with the subject. She’s amazing.
