Random Ramblings

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Hi all you brave Sparkies, this is an attempt to blog on my mobile - here we go with a rambling medly. Pasta and baked beans are not my friends, so I am not inviting them round to any dinner parties this week. I am going to stick with my besties - chicken soup and salmon with broccoli! Dessert can be reduced to 4 dried cranberries paired with a quartet of almonds and still be delicious - bye, bye pannacotta with raspberry coulis.... Cellulite can get worse as you age - pamper it with some scrumptious lotion, cos it is not going anywhere in a hurry. I am losing hair on my head and it has cheekily transferred itself to my jawline - gotta get a pair of expensive tweasers to keep my new pets in line.. My boxroom looks like a jumble sale stall at the end of the day - an unattractive mess that has to be sorted. Note to self - do it, woman. Some mean person nicked both valves on Bella's tyres - I took her to the bike repair shop and she is good to go again. Good timing, because one of my neighbours clipped the front wing of my car yesterday and she is in the garage getting repaired - I was relieved he fessed up, mind you... PokemonGo is making people walk like robots - 2 guys nearly bumped into me on the weir yesterday - staring at their mobiles looking dazed and square eyed - hope they enjoyed the fresh air... I am missing my hubs and don't like the thought of him being in a potentially dangerous region - but let's face it - the world is not a safe place full of friendly teddy bears. I am happy that Hannah is doing so well at 37 weeks - she still walks her dog at an amazing pace with her typical long stride - what a girl! Back to work next week to prepare for our last EU-inspection for a big project that ran from 2013-2015. I have most of the stuff in files- just have to bring it all together and think logically - no faffing around. Motto of the week for me is 'Keep Focused!' Hope everyone else is doing fine and keeping safe!

    Keep focused! I should have that tattooed on my forehead. Would I remember to look in the mirror though?

    37 weeks leaves not too long to wait....
    Thinking of you! Big, big hugs!

    Have to say I relate to some of the random rambling. Hannah looks great! I really like the photo of her out with the dog. Hoping DH returns home, safe and sound soon and you come through the EU inspection in good order.

    The only thing that ever helped reduce my cellulite was swimming at least twice a week! Never foubd a cream that worked...

    Enjoy your last week off before the stress is back, it sounds like next week will be pretty intense!
    Hannah looks great and I am so glad she is feeling great too!
    I can imagine you must be worried for your DH, but as you said, nowhere is really safe nowadays... I was talking with a lady the other day about a classical music festival in Normandy that promotes international young artists. Several parents had refused to send their children to take part because it was in France. I thought: "But this is a small village in Normandy?" And then I thought of everything that happened lately and yes, sadly, I can understand the parents, even though I don't approve... Sigh.
    Thank you for making us laugh, Wendy. I think I have given up the war against cellulite!!! Have you found creams that really work? In France there is one they say works, but I never tried it (I used to be obsessed with these things but when I became obese I just gave up! now that I am not obese anymore maybe I should resume the fight...).

    This was the cutest blog post ever, Wendy! Sorry about the bike and the car, but glad that both are being fixed. Cheers to your neighbor for his honesty! PokemonGo is a danger to us all and must be stopped! LOL

    Have a wonderful day, and good thoughts for your DH. I hope he stays out of harms way.

    Big hugs to you, my friend!

    Loved reading your ramblings, I can relate to so much of it! You know I have been weeding out and sorting, such a pain yet worth the effort. Had a chuckle over the tweezers, have lived that too. Pluck long enough they will give up! So happy for Hannah, such a glorious exciting time. Wanting your hubby home is understandable...soon, right?!

    Sounds like you know what ya need, just seems we have to exercise our right to a wee rebellious streak every once in a while. Hugs for you, friend!
