My baby boy grew up a little bit more today. I know he's 9, so not that much of a baby, but all you Mums out there know what I mean. This morning he announced he wanted to walk into school on his own. So after parking up, I crossed him over the road and watched him walk down to the gates and into the playground on his own. The little monkey only looked back once and he said that was to make sure I wasn't following him! Doesn't seem 2 minutes since this was taken.
I had a 5 minute pamper session today and painted my toenails. I don't possess any nail polish but Amy has loads. When I go into her room it's like entering my own personal beauty parlour. There's an ulterior motive to the coloured toes. I'm thinking they might detract from the numbers on the scales tomorrow. Those birthday cream cakes are weighing heavily on my mind and probably on my hips.
In between the showers, (will this rain and wind never end), I nipped out and finally planted up the strawberry plants. They've gone into a hanging basket otherwise Wendy would just eat them. The gardening gloves were great, no dirty fingernails to scrub this time.
I hope a daily update on the jigsaw doesn't become too boring, but the red bus is nearly done.
And tomorrow I'm hoping to make some 'puzzle people'.
