Hello again its me the Nearly 40 Year Old Domestic Goddess or as I could be known TN40YODM if it was up to The Teenager who seems to abbreviate every word she says these day "OMG I just CBA any more!!!!". The joys of having a teenage daughter, she seems to have invented a whole new word just by adding "YUA and WA" on the end of everything she says "okYUA.....noWA....I'm comingYUA" you get the drift.
My mum is the best at organising food. she has the ability to produce food from anywhere. I remember the day that I gave birth to the Teenager, there I was legs in those stirrup things pushing and panting, sweating and swearing when my mum suddenly produces a cool bag and asks the nurses if they would like a cheese or ham sarnie. I just looked at her in disbelief for her to say to me "don't worry darling I've got chicken too ". She is from up north you see and food is a big thing up there, it was her that introduced me to mushy peas, gravy and curry sauce on my chips, now I cant have them without anything moist going all over them.
I have however made a promise to myself that by the time I am 40 (which is in 5 months in case I hadn't mentioned it) I will be a size 12 -14. I just want to go into a shop and not have to go straight to the back of rail to look for my size. I want to be able to walk through a shop with the item in question hung over my arm and not feel the need to hide the size 18-20 label that is swinging as if saying "whoooooooo look how fat she is". It would be nice not to have the shop assistants look at me with that patronising I'm a size 10 look on their faces whilst for reasons only known to them they shout at the top of their skinny lungs "SIZE 18". At which point I find myself turning round to the people in the queue and telling them its for my mum (who is annoyingly a size14).
Right that's it for now folks, will write again soon.
Lots of love
