I have the best husband in the world. Well, for today and tomorrow at least. After that, he can go back to being ordinary. And annoying. And irritating. And a pain in the butt.
He came home tonight.. with tickets.. for G and me to go to see Take That tomorrow. Of course, the only tickets he could get are not so good and we won't be able to see much, but I don't care. It is the best surprise present he could have got us. G is over the moon. I am slightly regretting telling her tonight, should have waited until tomorrow morning. So far she has: had a bath, used my super expensive chocolate face pack, washed, dried and straightened her hair, and spent three hours deciding what to wear. I may have to give her sleeping tablets tonight. Her first concert! And funnily enough, my first concert was a Take That one as well.
And then tonight, I got an email. A despatch email from a wonderful WAHM (work at home mum) who had so kindly (and beautifully) knitted up some wool that I bought (oh yeah.. I gave up on the me knitting thing. It turns out that I can knit perfectly well in straight lines, but when it comes to putting anything together and making the straight lines into clothes? Not so good.) Where was I? Oh yes.. Carley at BibsandBots made these for Lal. Gorgeously stunning shorts, crotcheted into bright turquoise goodness. They are stunning.

I may have to mug the postman when he first starts his round tomorrow for them.
They come at the end of an era. These may be the last woolly items I get to buy. And the last nappy items. The ungrateful boy keeps using his potty. No matter how many times I hide it, lose it or store toys in it, he finds it and uses it for its intended purpose. People tell me I'm supposed to be proud. Hmph to that.. what about the nappies? Huh? Huh? Where was I again? Oh yes, the last woolly item.. but what a way to go out huh? Did I say gorgeous? And lovely? And stunning?
Right, must now go and prepare for tomorrow. Gary.. I'm coming..
