I don't think I've ever truly been overly superstitious. I do believe full moons make peoples brains go la la. And I don't particularly like the number 13 but that's more not being on the 13th floor or the 13th person etc.
But as you can see from the pic we have collected our new door keys and there are 13 of them! 13?!
And only two are doubled up so far as I can see!! What the hell do they all do?! - I will find out tonight...
I realize there are some who would plain refuse these keys. And why the devil not! There isn't a 13th capsule on the London eye for that very reason!! And I'm sure some remote tribes still have ritual sacrifices in the
name of superstition. Many people are superstitious about killing spiders... What could possibly be unlucky there?! You're bloody lucky it's in a place it can be killed and not ten foot up if you ask me!!
But me - give me a ladder and I would walk under it. Let's walk over those black cat tracks and leave the rabbits foot in that cheesy shop! And kill spiders!!
Life is too short to have something other than laws or morales dictate what you do.

This is the birthday Burberry mac that the lovely Liam bought me for
my 30th birthday - isn't he good!!

Today I am irritated by hypocrisy and double standards.
Today I am irked by ignorance.
Today I got a shiny new photo ID to access the lift to the 32nd floor.
This is mucho useful as the receptionists are jumped up twits and
could go hand in hand with the aforementioned irritant.
Today my ears popped in the lift.
And finally today I joined a gym.
Happy 'today being yesterday already' people!
May those who irk you today yesterday and for all your tomorrows be
pooped on by pigeons.
The last time I walked into a church for purposes other than sightseeing was James foley's communion. So about ummm... 7 years? And the time before that was Claire and Dave's wedding. Or possibly vice versa. And Liam we had worried for some time could set alight walking in to a church. And his opinion on the catholic religion is 'well-formed' I think we'll say.
So the lovely Helena finally had the lovely Jasmin christened and lime and I had the privilege of being asked as god parents. The answer was of course yes. And so we went to church; found out Liam doesn't burn
in the doorway and our own god daughter wouldn't pose for photo's with us.
A lovely day all around. But alas no close up photo's so here is one of just me and jas the other week.

So with this and the news that my mum has three breaks in her spine I figured it was time to start the burning of fat seeing as I am an able bodied woman and have no excuses. Now now... Don't be naive enough to think I will stop eating. Diets schmiets. I'm not cutting out chocolate even if it meant the end of all wars!! Some things deserve sacrifice!!
But exercise does need to be begun... So Tuesday I called up and booked myself on one of these shiny new dance based exercise classes that even requires me to use my favourite dancing shoes for part of
the class. Those are in storage so I took my back up pair. But Bloody
good fun! Worked up a sweat. But oh-mi-gawd... The muscles that ache
today in places I didn't know had muscles!!!
Note to self - more stretching next time!!!
The lovely people got Liam and I a dinner experience voucher for a Thai restaurant coincidentally only 5 minutes drive from where we're staying.
The food was so yum! The restaurant fabulous. And the bottle of wine included after the champagne ended up being pink and sparkly as Liam had decided to drive and I merrily drank it all to myself... Much to the waiters' disapproval ;o)
And as our extra gift we received the ornate painted pot in the pic. Which will contain something fabulous once we get in our own place and
can show it off.
Thank you team two (and special contributing guests) x x x

So when I said no breaks that was before the hospital called her back in to be restrained in bed again. Do x-rays change after people leave hospitals...? Or do they just then stop pretending they know what they're looking at and get a proffessional to do it?!
So everyone manifest happy healthy thoughts for mum. And mum will be better soon.
Love you mum!

And my mum; half way round the world fell out of the attic and ended up in hospital... Luckily no broken bones but now medicated and bed bound.
But... Good things: I got free chocolate at work! Two luuuuurvely massages (apparently here and there they just bring masseuses in?!) I would have had champagne and strawberries today if I'd gone to the
call centre. and I didn't have to change trains on the way home making this the earliest home from work night yet!!
So what does any good early home girl do... I go to the bottle shop (offy) by the station and await my mans return. Mr Liam has gone to buy us a car this evening!!
But thank f... it's Friday!!
Happy weekend drunkeness to you all!!! From a soon to be more mobile
(and slightly tipsy) nic x x
