I'm an 'inny'. But this isn't a political post. This morning I sat and watched the in/out malarkey unfold on TV. Every time somebody asked "are you in or out?" I thought of belly buttons. I can't help it, they just spring to mind. After 20 minutes, the news was starting to repeat itself so me and my 'inny' got dressed and popped into Middleton for some bits.
Top of the list were Thomas' foods of the month. Cheese and onion crisps, rich tea biscuits and apples. He's also started drinking a glass of milk every day and I wonder, could this be the turning point where food is concerned. I don't hold out much hope, but we'll see.
There is another teddy on the needles, I was going to get the ones already made in the post on Monday, but I've still got pencil bags to fill so I might as well knit another one while I'm looking for stationery. Lime green and lemon is one of my favourite colour combinations. Back in the 90's we had a lime green bedroom carpet, (I kid ye not), and lemon walls, which I absolutely loved. I think it might have been inspired by a 'Changing Rooms' makeover. Do you remember that programme?
This afternoon I threw Amy's tray bake away, made a Victoria sponge and we had a quick version of afternoon tea while watching Mr Selfridge on catch up TV. We usually have a takeaway Saturday evening but get hungry late afternoon and start picking at bits, mainly chocolate and biscuits, so this seemed a better option to tide us over.
Amy has gone out with her friends for a meal to celebrate her birthday. These are different friends than the ones she used to hang around with. There was a major fall out with adopted daughter just before Christmas - not sure I ever mentioned that - and although they are back on speaking terms they don't meet up with each other any more. Anyway, hair needed to be curly tonight so she had me twisting and rolling and pinning. Not the best job, but it gave the desired tousled look she was after.
I dropped her off at her friends with overnight bag in one hand and converse in the other. No doubt we won't see her now until tomorrow afternoon.
And as much as I hinted at being invited out with the girls she was having none of it. Can't for the life of me think why!
