Now this was a difficult one for me as we don't really do white here. Two boys, two dogs and white tend not to mix very well, so we gave up trying years ago. We even drink black tea and coffee so no milk either. After lots of thought and deliberation I came up with this.....
I had an eventful day yesterday so are you sitting comfortably ready for a mammoth blog?
I'm so excited as I've bought Pete the bestest ever birthday present and it's all thanks to Terrie. I was looking at everyone elses pictures yesterday morning when I read Terrie's blog and got so jealous about her going to see Pink that I went onto the MEN's website to see what concerts were happening in Manchester.
Now for the last 17 years, without fail, Pete has asked for a naked lady and a motorbike for his birthday, Christmas and even when I ask him what he wants from Asda. He has had every variation we could think of, naked Barbies, toy bikes, Calenders you name it he's had it all except the real thing, coz I don't count apparently.
So I was scrolling down the list of events to see if Pink was playing there at anytime soon when I saw a listing for the "Crusty Demons" having never heard of this band, and being very nosey, I took a look. It only turns out that they are the best ever motorbike stunt team AND they have Crusty Babes, who upon further investigation, aren't that crusty. So I have booked tickets for the 4 of us for Jan 3rd 2008 to go and see them. So Pete is now getting his motorbikes and lots of scantily clad babes in black leather bikinis. How cool is that!! I owe Terrie big time because if it wasn't for her I wouldn't have thought to look at the website *Thanks Terrie*.
I got my car back yesterday, 6 weeks after the accident. It got driven off the van and 2 minutes later it was driven back onto the van as that's how long it took for me to loose my temper. The bonnet, window and right down the passenger side were all covered in huge, white scratches. This is from where the fireman stood on it to get to the other car and then lifted it and bounced it out. How they thought this would be acceptable is totally beyond me. I have no idea how long it is going to take them to repair this but in the mean time I get to drive round in a brand new, super fast Passatt so I'm not complaining.
On the friend front he is out of HDU and has had his drain removed last night. He was sitting up eating sandwiches a couple of hours after the Op so he seems to have come through it OK. The Dr has said it all went to plan but we don't know anything else yet, we should find out tomorrow what happens next. The girls are getting to see their Dad today and then we are paying him a visit tomorrow. We took the girls to see "The Simpsons" last night while their Mum went to the hospital and they really enjoyed it especially the bit where you see Bart's Willy.
Phew I need a cuppa and a rest now.
