Conversations I’m not prepared for.


I just went to turn off the girls' light. Eilidh looked at my nightie (yes - it's 7.45pm and I'm in my nightwear... what!?) and said,

"I like your nightie"


"Do you wear it in bed?"

"Yes, to keep me cosy"

"Well, what does Daddy wear?"

"Dunno - a pair of pyjamas"

"Well, I hope he's not naked, cos you wouldn't want to touch his penis"

"Er... no - I wouldn't want to do that".


Seriously - what the…?

Things that make me cry.


I have been rather emotional of late.  For no reason, other than I’m a girl.  Yes, that’s a valid excuse. 

  • Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  Really – does this need any explanation?  Though Ty’s little beard thing makes me cry.  Cry for him. It’s bad.
  • Pictures of my friend’s newborn little girl.  I know how long she’s waited for her.  And she’s beautiful.
  • Early mornings. 
  • Body Attack class.  I really don’t know what that one’s about.  Probably just tiredness from the aforementioned early mornings…  Or crying cos I realise my body is going to have to be attacked with a scalpel to make any real difference.
  • Odd socks.  Unless there are people in this house wearing three socks at a time, I just don’t know what’s going on there.  I really hope Robbie’s not wearing three socks.  The Red Hot Chilli Peppers are the only people that could get away with it.  And even then…
  • No more baby gate.  Really – I was sobbing when I took that away from the top of the stairs.  We just didn’t need it.  Cos my babies are big.  And there’s no more babies.  And so there were tears.. :(
  • Lazytown’s ‘Teamwork’ song.  Really!! 
  • Turning 34.  I was 34 last week.  Wow.  Old.  Ever since I turned 30, I’ve had a couple of tears on my birthday. I don’t want to be old! :(

Well.  I think I’ve listed most things.  But, there are things that make me happy.

  • Chocolate and sweets.

Do you need my address to send me some?
