How did it get to that time already?
Stabbing myself repeatedly as I sew far too many name tags onto two sets of school uniforms...

Honestly, when did my horrors get to be so big!

Samuel R. "Chip" Delany
Few have had such broad commercial success with aggressively experimental prose techniques.


Which science fiction writer are you?

The NEAREST Book
Copied from lots of people.

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 10.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST

"Whats wrong with suggesting that we talk about things later?"

Nick Hornby's How to Be Good turns out to be the closest book to hand, nuzzled next to The Miracle at Speedy Motors and Chekhov, Five plays.

Its about time I boasted about my kids...
Tommy just sat on my knee with a new book he got today, about animals. And pointed to the pictures and named a Maned Wolf, Armadillo, Llama, Pygmy Marmoset, Caiman, Tapir... and probably more animals that I didn't know the names of so I couldn't work out what he was saying. Oh, And Baby Jaguar. I don't let them watch THAT much Diego...

Current Mood: satisfied

Dear Mr Clegg
If I get an automated phone call at 7pm tonight when I am up to my eyeballs in nappies, bottles of milk, boys fighting over toothbrushes and looking for Lucky Teddy, you are a dead man.

Alternatively I am getting your phone number and setting you a 4am alarm call!

WHY would anyone think that cold calling would make anyone more popular??? Especially at switch off time on cbeebies?
Honestly.

Hello Again
I has a nice exam for the OU tomorrow, in my usual style I will either sail through it or spend 3 hours crying blood.

This year I have mostly been doing 19th Century Novels. I will NOT miss my reading list. Loads of people on my course are popping straight onto the 20thC novel right after. Nutters. Or possibly, don't have toddlers that think that all books are Nom Nom.

Happy Birthday Waglets
Two today.
(random swearing a gosh where did time go comments from friends list)

Yesterday we went to London Zoo, they screamed impressively when it was time to leave the adventure playground, and you know, go look at some animals.

Today looks to be another lovely day.

To Croydonites
Just a heads-up, one of my friends at work has had her bank account raided. In sums of a hundred pounds or so a time, someone has gone shopping in new york on her wages. It Happens, I hear you say, HOWEVER when she went to report it at her local police station (a crime number was needed) she was the 8th or 9th person the police officer had seen that day, all the same, card skimmed, some bugger in New York with the cash. There seems to be a bit of a wave going on.

In other news, I am still breathing, woo.

Wether
Well, Daddy isn't getting home tonight, he is in Madrid of all places and no one is flying into London. I took one look at the wind and didn't try to get out with the double buggie, as we may have taken off, so the poor babies are drinking their emergency powdered milk supply, and telling me it tastes funny.

My house is a mess, the sofa is tiny, but if it comes to it there is a spare side in the double bed if you want to top and tail, any homeless commuting types

/AFK
I am off up home today to go see the familiars in Glasgow, so won't be around until after the weekend. Be good and don't have any major dramas without me.

I didn't bother making a big announcement about it on EQ to my guild, I suspect they will think I have been kidnapped by aliens, because its true, if I can't get out of the house with the Waglets all my friends live inside the computer.

A lovely day out.
Once again, the waglets and I braved a trip to the horseshoe pub in london, and I actually got to see real live people.

Still too tired to write a proper entry, but it was lovely to see everyine I did see, you didn't all scare Scotia_angel too much, and thanks to all the poeple who played with, spoiled, chucked around and generally loved the waglets, they had a wonderful day, went to bed at about half six without a peep and have only just woken up.

I Just worry when a certain Mr Bacon says next time he sees the waglets he is going to bring hair gel.

Afternoon All
Aparently there are new, nosey peeps reading my LJ, I feel as if I should forward them on to people who have a more wild and or exciting life than I do.

Wag is off to South Africa again, almost exactly a year after the last time he went, should be a bit easier to cope this time, although its harder to carry both twins at the same time.

Bah, I wish I had some wild exciting gossip, but thehy know me from everquest, so they KNOW what I do with my life when I can't get a baby sitter!

Love and Hugs

Hello All
I Do promise a proper update, I might even do one this afternoon.

I just thought tho, as cangetmad made me a lovely default Icon I would annoy the prudes of LJ with an icon showing gratuitous nudity and boobs. Even if my monsters are now big enough to be down the mill earning their keep.

Wag went away to Paris at something silly like 4 am this morning, so it is very very quiet around here. You know you've been out of the loop too long when a freind ringing your mobile to say hi is a live journal worthy mention.

Request
Does anyone have any pictires of me perchance? I am sorely in need of iconage, and one where I wasn't holding a baby would help me feel like a human again, instead of just mum.
