Sunday Summary

Sunday, 4 November 2012

- This week has been quite nice. We've had serious money issues which is why I'm going to be two weeks late on my rent (again) but it will all be sorted by mid-November which means I can finally breathe a sigh of relief and get into the spirit of preparing for my birthday. I love my birthday. I don't really know why as we never throw big parties or get special presents but I think it's the residual positive energy from birthdays as a child and I still get very excited about turning a year older.

- Obviously, this week was Halloween and we had a bit of fun with it. While Amelia didn't want either her costume on or her photograph taken, Layla revelled in it. She was a pageant queen from Toddlers and Tiaras. I was the token woman from horror films who was hooked on some intravenous painkiller. My boyfriend (fiance, partner - I really don't know how to refer to him) was Hulk Hogan as he had a sudden burst of inspiration while shaving his beard ready for Movember. Amelia was supposed to be an evil fairy but no, the terrible two's have come a month early. Way to go, achiever. Anyway, we went to my sister's Halloween party, played the usual suspect games such as musical statues and bumps, had some tantrums from a few children and eat our weight in buffet food which was excellent. It was lovely to see my brother, sister, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, nieces etc together in the same room even if my dad and his girlfriend buggered off to see Skyfall instead.

- WE BOUGHT A CAR. Yes, it's official, we bought a car. My mother in law paid for the car and we're going to park it up on my Bampi's drive while Sean spends his time servicing it and raiding the scrappy for parts to get it road worthy and as soon as he finds work our little Clio will be on the road. This is so exciting for me. I'm still learning to drive so can only drive with someone in the car with me but my boyfriend has held his license for over 8 years so it's exciting to think we finally have a car again. Hopefully she'll be on the road before January 2013 if all goes to plan!

    1. Thank you! I'm very nervous to be writing it but it is self-promotion and it does involve writing for someone other than my narcissistic little blog so I am also very excited!
