Now are you sure you want to work from home today, darling?
Back to normal here today hobags, Dave's just gone out to the office. Yesterday was nice, although everything was tinged for one reason or another. I had my hair cut and coloured so am back to being dark again, the last colour had faded so much I was almost blonde. This was good until the hairdresser nicked one of the tiny skin tags on my neck with her clippers. You'd have sworn the damn thing was connected to an artery the amount of bleeding it did.
It was pretty much like this, only more dramatic and at the back of my neck.
She sent me out with a piece of tissue stuck to my neck like an eejit. I hadn't realised how much it was bleeding until I was driving home. She obviously did because she rang home shortly after to make sure I was ok! Good job I wasn't going home to a vampire is all I can say.
My favourite pic featuring bloodied tissue. I still would.
After that Dave took me out for lunch. It was a bit surreal. We were able to do this because our youngest has just started going to nursery for full days. Of course, we've done evenings out just the two of us, just nothing during the day in the past six and a half years or so.
Apparently most people in our age group are in the same situation. This combined with the fact that I'd had my hair done so had no grey showing, meant that I was feeling very young when I scanned the restaurant at our fellow diners.
"I can't believe that old girl's teeth just fell out in her dinner..."
We left feeling far too full and decided that next time we'll just do coffee and cake instead. I have no idea why this piece of writing is this colour now, but I know for a fact that if I try and change it that it will get pissy with me and turn invisible, so I'll just go with it, k? Anyway, about that coffee and cake...
Yep, that looks kind of perfect. Not sure about the coffee, but I'm pretty sure Mr. Stan would be willing to cut the cake.
I also discovered that having your husband working from home when all of the children are out for the day has other advantages. Obviously, this would normally be a very good thing, but the fact that I was gripped by a fanfic and had ear-marked my post-lunch hour with some reading before the kids come home left me with mixed feelings on this lol.
Well, maybe not quite anyday ;o)
If you want a look at the fic I was engrossed in, it's Fuggiasco by kdc2239. Becky recc'd it to me, and as usual she was right - it's fab :o)
I miss our regular Thursday fun and games with Community FanFic, so how about a little Community Fuck, Marry, Abandon in a desolate place (I'm in a good mood today, I really don't want to see anybody getting hurt). Ok, I'll start, next person answers and then sets their own for the next person. It doesn't have to be Twilight related, but I'll start it that way:
Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, David Slade ;o)
