It’s been a funny old week. Not quite the week I expected but then life never is, is it? I don’t have anything to report on the good vibes that I asked for last week,thank you to all that sent them. It looks as though that is going into this week as par the course it seems.

There really isn’t much to write about this week, I’ve not taken to my my new glasses quite as well as I thought I would…why does the floor seem to slope when I walk around with them on? That’s not very encouraging when I should be be wearing them to drive is it? Little M made the most gorgeous valentine’s gift at nursery…and then told me it wasn’t for me. I was slightly saddened at that but hey he draws me pages and pages of pictures and I get millions of kisses and “I love you mummy”…that’s toddlers for you! I’ll get over it, one day. ;)

Wasn’t sure if I was going to have some alone time this weekend, I never count my chickens but I was surprised to get it so had a little retail therapy also known as window shopping and then a lovely meal out with a friend on Saturday night. We had forgotten that restaurants would be packed full of couples being that it is valentine’s day tomorrow. It wasn’t too bad, although I have to say I didn’t see that many couples that looked particularly happy! That’s a bit sad isn’t it. Does anyone else think that the hype around valentine’s day has gone a bit crazy? Or is it me? The singleton green eyed monster? All joking aside, I don’t remember seeing quite so many heart shaped balloons floating around the shopping centres before or so many sickly pink dyed huge heart shaped slabs of chocolate. It is another ploy to get people to spend wads of cash or chance the wrath of their partner if they don’t come up with the goods! Bah humbug! Who me??

Anyway, I had my own little valentine’s gift pop through my letterbox the other day courtesy of Appliance Online. Well, I’ll pretend it is a valentine’s pressie. It is a giant box of chocolates and I am not sharing, so there! Those of you who don’t know what this is about may be interested to know that Appliance Online , suppliers of white goods, is otherwise known in the blogosphere as The  Fairy Godmother. If you write a comment on this post you may have a pleasant surprise if the Appliance Online Fairy Godmother sees it. Mediocre Mum was delighted with a slow cooker after commenting on Rosie Scribble‘s  post who got sent a television after commenting on Single Parent Dad’s post after he got sent a washing machine! Kelly received a much wanted Maileg Mouse, others at their request have received money to give to their favourite charity. After the Fairy godmother of appliances saw my comment on Mediocre Mum’s post I was sent a box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat! Isn’t that lovely! So what are you waiting for? You never know what writing a comment will generate.

Have a good week everyone!
