We lead a very glamorous life over here in Deb's World. I mean, how many other people can join in with Sian's Memos, Mail and Me posts by recording two bags of diamonds being delivered? Oh yes, diamonds, dozens of them. Real ones? Sadly not but hopefully they'll look pretty scattered on the wedding tables.
Talking of wedding tables, I'm now up to 60 paper flowers - the end is in sight!
A few other purchases have made their way into the house this week too. Only three weeks until our holiday and I thought it was time I reviewed my summer clothes. Some of those dresses have been in the wardrobe for far too long and are looking slightly dated and 'well worn'. So I've been through everything, donated a fair few things to a charity shop and replaced a couple of bits. It feels like you can date my clothes by their colours, I seem to have favourite colours each year, do you do that? I've just removed several pieces from my 'mauve' years, and I think that the next ones to go will be from the 'blue' stage! So I am trying hard to buy things unlike anything else in my wardrobe for a bit of variety.
A new stage in our life is starting this week - the interim 'looking after Leo stage'. R's maternity leave is coming to an end this month and she definitely didn't want to go back to commuting into London every day. So she gave her CV to a company who got her the last local job she had and was sent the following day for an interview for a part time local PA job - and was offered it there and then. Too good to be true, a reasonable salary, flexible hours, some working from home and 10 mins drive max to the office. Only he needed someone to start now, and she hadn't got childcare set up, thinking she had time to arrange.
So for the next three weeks we are going to be doing a bit extra babysitting while she gets her childminder in place and negotiates the working from home day. It's going to be different and I'm sure it's going to be tiring because he's a little bundle of mischief.
So by the time you are reading this, I'll probably be on my hands and knees chasing him around the lounge and trying to keep him out of trouble - Wish me luck!
