What a dilemma!

Posted 31-01-2006 at 13:56 by WillowTheWhisp

Last night was the final episode of Paul McKenna promising to make me thin. It was also the allotment group meeting at the Globe Bowling club. Decisions, decisions. Of course we had to go to the meeting.

Daughters were left with strict instructions to record Paul McKenna.

There we were nicely seated at our meeting, discussing the best way to erdicate slugs (apparently weetabix causes them to explode - could we be banned from keeping an allotment on the grounds of cruelty to slugs?) when Busman's phone rings - number 2 daughter telling him she can't get the video recorder working. He tells he we are in a meeting and there's not a lot he can do about it from here and advises her to keep trying. He returns to the meeting.

There and back again (or, Chorley is 3 bus rides away!)

Posted 23-01-2006 at 08:32 by WillowTheWhisp

Having Busman all to myself for a change this weekend (no private hire jobs) I decided to take advantage of this and get him to run me over to Chorley after the girls' dance class so I could pick up a copy of PAF (Pesonal Ancestral File - computer prog for family trees) at the church distibution centre. The girls came with us but Mimi stayed in the car listening to something on the radio.

I got my CD and Em got herself a "scripture tote" for putting her stuff in to take to church on Sundays. We also went mad and bought a copy of the Book of Mormon in German. She is learning German at school and I used to be fairly fluent so we thought it would be a challenge to try to read it. We've always got the English version to refer

Temple

Posted 21-01-2006 at 08:03 by WillowTheWhisp

Yesterday evening was lovely. Mimi and I went to the Temple with a group of others from church. Children must be at least 12 years old before they can go and qualify for a temple recommend from the Bishop. That just basically means that they have to be little angels who never do a thng wrong! - I wish. We went with a friend and her two teenagers (My youngest daughter isn't old enough yet to attend) and all the way there and back the digging, poking, arguing whining etc from the back seat was just typical of any normal outing with any normal teenage siblings.

Once there it was lovely though. We had some who had never been before so Mimi felt like an "old hand" and was showing others what to do and where things were

ho hum

Life is a very unpredicatable thing. The life of the wife of a coach driver even more so. It's next to impossible to plan ahead. Busman only just found out this morning that he's working tonight, but the way his hours are set out it doesn't seem to allow for him actually eating at anytime! Mimi is out early evening so I think I'll be cooking for three when she gets back. Poor Busman will be on leftovers for supper. Probably about midnight.

I've suddenly gone all nostalgic and started watching old TV programs, it's Bergerac right now. I love the theme tune. Got my alarm clock set to warn me when the washing machine needs emptying and going to settle down with a dandelion coffee and watch TV for a bit.

Corn and corny

Posted 17-01-2006 at 07:52 by WillowTheWhisp

Well maybe the good folks of Accrington should be warned that if they see some loony woman wandering the streets tapping various parts of her body, rolling her eyes and humming "Jingle Bells" in reverse it is no cause for alarm. It's only me using Paul McKenna's technique to avoid a craving for something fattening or harmful. I'm not actually sure that I do have problems with cravings very often but we shall see if this works if and when I do. I'm not sure I can remember the proper sequence to do it all in though. I wonder what would happen if I got it wrong? Would I develop a sudden urge to do something else instead?

I need to find somewhere I can obtain supplies of wheat straw to make corn dollies. I haven't bought
