A sure sign the colder weather is here is when I have to stock up on lip balm for Thomas. He suffers with chapped lips and ends up with a big red patch all around his mouth if we don't nip it in the bud. Only trouble is once he starts putting it on he can't seem to stop as you can see. He's posing in his new MCFC beanie here all ready for the match tonight.
Amy spent a good 10 minutes in front of the lounge mirror last night sticking sellotape across her nose and chin then ripping it off to cleanse her pores. I remember doing this myself as a teenager. Some things never change do they. Ripping it off didn't seem to bother her, although I winced every time she did it, so I've bought her some proper strips to use.
I didn't buy any books from The Works today as I've still got a couple to read. Instead I bought a calendar. I love these family calendars where everybody has a section to write in what they're doing.
Walking through BHS I spotted this handbag and decided it needed to come straight home with me so that I could take it to visit York next week. Isn't it cute.
So cute in fact that through ooohing and aaahing over the 'face' I didn't notice the fact that the strap hadn't been sewn properly. Customer services have put another one away for me and I'm taking this one back on Friday. I hate having to return things. It's such a waste of time.
And here's my little Halloween project. I'm going to decorate a Halloween tree this year (an idea pinched from Sadie over at Life in the English Rain), and these ghost leaves seemed appropriate to hang on. A silly half hour spent painting and drawing faces but it was light relief from the heavy going projects we've been doing at Number 14.And that has been Wednesday. Pretty much back to how it used to be.
Tonight a bit of jigsaw, some TV and a chapter or two of my book will finish the day off nicely while I wait for the boys to come home. The match is on TV so I'll put it on after I've watched Homes for Veterans. I might even catch a glimpse of them (not very likely).
I hope City score, firstly because they need to win the game to go through to the next round and secondly, so that Thomas experiences the atmosphere of the crowd going wild over a goal.
