Apologies for the ‘loud’ photo….and cheesy title.
Well I realised I’m turning into my mother…scary eh! Lucy came down for breakfast with her ever decreasing school skirt on, if it gets any shorter she’ll be able to wear it as a scarf…I made a mother type face, but said nothing.
On my way into town this morning I was listening to RTE radio 1, the Ryan Tubridy show was on and the subject was blogging. There were two well known ‘bloggers’ talking (Damien and Suzy) (http://www.mulley.net/ http://www.mamanpoulet.com/), they did really well considering some of the negative comments. Then Ryan said they had Val O’Connor on the line, well I had to do a bit of a double take, for one odd moment I thought he meant me (I know…but it was quite early in the morning!). For those of you that don’t know O’Connor was my maiden name… Val was great….well she would be she’s got a great name. Her website is her if you would like a look: http://www.valskitchen.com/
I did the usual shopping. Mr. Kipling does make exceedingly good cakes….its just a shame some bugger pinched half of mine (what happened to quality control?)
I had to stop on the way back from town at the garage. I’m trying to get Berties nct sorted out. Trust me to call just at the time when Jim from the Vicar of Dibley was trying to buy a car (OK so it wasn’t Jim but it really sounded like him).
Salesman: ‘Do you want to buy this car?’
Jim: ‘ No, no, no, no, no, yes.
Salesman: ‘Do you want to pay a deposit?’
Jim: ‘ Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, no.
This went on for about two years….well thats what it felt like. Until Jim did the deal and left….phew.
