Ta-tara-dah!24 April , 2012
Obviously these pics were taken before it got cold. This is the place where Nicola went/goes to swimming classes. We’ve put them on hold until spring for now though.
Right…bullet points for today I think.
- Last night, since I was so tired I decided the quickest thing I had in the house to make was the cheat version of
musclemussel soup with some of our freshly baked bread. I wasn’t sure if Nicola would go for it, but she loved it! Win…definitely will be making that again when i don’t feel like serious kitchen time. (It’s very simple to make, don’t knock it before you’ve tried it. Take one packet of cream of mushroom soup and make it as per the instructions on the packet except replace half the water with milk instead. Add a pinch or so of crushed garlic. When the soup is hot, ready and thick whack in one or two tins of musclesmussels – just drain the oil out first! And that’s all there is to it. Serve with some fresh buttered bread.)
- This morning I found myself with no office pants to wear. They are all between tumble drier and ironing stages of the process so I went with a skirt, some leggings, and boots. With this I decided to wear my poncho. Nicola pipes up from the bed, “Mamma! Jy het jou superman baadjie aan!” Mwahaha! From now on, that’s what I’ll call it. 😉
- My last little bullet of the day I will dedicate to radio ads that anoy the hell out of me. First up: The stupid SANRAL one. It is not an E-road buddy, it’s a highway. At the very least it’s a national road. That’s why it’s called N1. Calling it an E-road is a tad presumptious, and it doesn’t make me more likely to go get one of your pox ridden tags either. Grrr! The other two are guess the flavour adds, I think one is Lobello and the other one is Stimorol gum. If you don’t know what to call it after you slapped it together I don’t know why I would want to buy it firstly, or secondly help you come up with a name for your lab accident? This does not seem like a good campaign to me, but maybe I’m just odd that way. I don’t get the feeling that they already know what it is and are just trying to see if we can guess, it’s like they accidentally came up with something that probably doesn’t taste bad-ish but now can’t decide what it reminds them of that consumers may have heard of before.
Oh…and my hair is looking great today after yesterday’s extra conditioning by the way. We got loads of sleep and I’m feeling muuuuch better. 😉
