I’ve got a massive confession to make. I have really messed up. Seriously it’s not even funny.
I forgot to renew my domain name. Yup, www.eggscreamandhoney.com (don’t even click that it will make you cry) was up for renewal last month and with one thing and another *cough, cough* I forgot to hit the yes button to my renewal notification.
What’s worse? This is the part that makes it a big boo-boo. Somebody, or should I say some company, bought it from right under my nose. Well it wasn’t under my nose literally as I was away on holiday and not thinking about my blog at all. Still it was plan mean. Nasty. Deliberate. Can I say worse? Not sure, this blog is a peaceful, happy place where people get together to chat over tea and cake. But really. It’s just not on.
Today there is another teenager in my house.
A male one this time.
That means funny smells, pimples, posters of scantily clad women on the walls, grunting where words would suffice, trousers half way down the butt and worse of all GIRLFRIENDS!
If you were given the choice to spend £250 ($400) on one dress or £250 on one dress, a jacket, shoes and accessories what would you do?
Add to the mix that the money isn’t yours. In fact, not only is it not yours, it’s not anyone’s. That works because you are being given the items for free.
First thing I saw this morning upon waking at 7am. Opened my bedroom curtains and there it was. “Oh ****, there’s a cow in the garden!” In fact there were three.
Back to school.
Three harmless words. Together, however, their alliance packs quite a punch.
I know the holidays can be hard for some. Working mothers have to fund potentially expensive
childcare or face being penalised for their absence. SAHMs with small children
are faced with endless hours of organised play which can be exhausting as well
as financially draining.
Summer Tea Parties
Summer’s here. Don’t tell the English weather though. As soon as it hears the rain will come. It’s like “hello July, hello torrential rain.”
So let’s talk hush hush.
I’ve got some great ideas for a summer’s day afternoon tea party. It’s the high-class picnic and all the better for it.
Communicating and Negotiating via Facebook
My daughter has 691 friends on Facebook. I’m not sure that’s even a lot in the world of teenage social networking. One of her friends has 728.
Thanks to mobile uploading she also has 1593 photos.
Between Facebook chatting with a small proportion of those friends, managing her photos, studying for her A levels (final exams), eating, sleeping and just generally having a life you wonder how she has any time to talk to her mother.
