conversation with 6 year old

picture the scene, Me and two small daughters, aged 6 and 2. almost bed time, watching the bedtime hour on cbeebies. In the night garden. I am curious, never having really watched it before and I am asking about all the characters.

small person (SP): thats the pinkyponk
me: indeed
SP: it goes slow, and the generator tells it to hurry up.
me: oh?
voice on TV says 'hurry up pinkyponk'
me: did you mean NARRATOR?

sometimes the things they say are priceless they really are!

So! what is this blog for?

After all the last one was for the lead up to the wedding to let everyone know what was going on (really it started as my own mad ramblings, then found out others were reading it!)

Is this going to be my own ramblings? will it have a purpose? will anyone read it? will anyone want to read it?

who knows?

I would like to make some plans for my future though, not big ones - just a few things that I (or is that which I?) want to do before I am 45.

  1. go to the opera. Not just go to an opera, but have a box, get dressed up, go for a meal etc etc, the grand stuff.
  2. visit a sushi bar
  3. own a pair of JimmyChoos - OK I know thats sad!
  4. have a spa holiday
  5. have dinner at Sopwell House Hotel
thats a start, I am sure I will think of more as time goes on.

watch this space!

I am a Pirate

My pirate name is:

Calico Charity Bonney

Often indecisive, you can't even choose a favorite color. You're apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!
