Wonderful Wednesday: Normal Service Will Resume…


Normal blog service will resume at some point in the not so distant future. Maybe this week. Maybe next week. But right now? Right now I’m off to collapse into a work-broken heap and ugly sob with happiness at my finally finished kitchen after not one but two false finishing alarms this week (screw you builder men p.s. thanks for my pretty cupboards. Not thanks for discussing hardware with the husband and directing your instructions about the sink to me).

Tonight will also involve making a barbecued feast for a first meeting with the teenagers boyfriend. Whilst yes, my brain is occupied with the monstrosity that has been this week – including but not limited to an epic tea-tastrophe, almost losing my office keys in the skip and SO MUCH WORK – I can’t deny that a not small part of me is wondering just how embarrassing parent I can go for this first meeting. It’s one of lifes’ greatest pleasures.

So, I hope you’re having a majestic week full of unicorns and wonderment, I am not but I have a new kitchen and no fewer than two new striped dresses so it’s not all bad.

If you’re missing me then go read this weeks’ column in which I once again rant on about my vagina being my own business and I sort of a little bit predict the future seeing as I wrote it on Sunday and all.

How the dickens is your week going?

  • Sending love and hurried kitchen-finishing-shaped wishes your way! I can’t imagine what an upside down couple of weeks you have been having! It really WILL be worth it all in the end though – even if i am the BILLIONTH person in all of the world to tell you so!

    Lots of love to you xxx

  • Yikes I know the feeling 🙁

    Oh Michelle, there’s a virtual hug wingings its way to you. Take of yourself and you have full reign to be embarrassing – or just to eat all good BBQ food. I hope there was potato salad, that’s the crowning glory of a good BBQ.
    There’s a positive n everything and I hope to see you ship shape soon. For now just sending love and good wishes.

  • Yay for finally completed kitchen! Boo to builders with 1950s mindsets.
    And I hear you – I’m having a shocker of a week so far. Here’s hoping it all picks up at the weekend – I am looking forward to attending a 90th birthday and a Tiki BBQ! (Sadly they’re two separate things, but if I ever reach the age of 90 I may be tempted to throw a Tiki BBQ in celebration, just because…)
    Btw, Sainsburys are currently offering a tub of salted caramel Haagen Daas for £2.50 if you need a more tangible pick me up. It’s certainly brightened my evening!
    Much love X

    Heaps of excited congratulations on the new kitchen – share some pictures for us all to revel in!

    Hope the barbecue went well and good call on the stripy dresses… I’m all about the stripes myself too. Sending heaps of de-stressing hugs. Sometimes a little break and a recharge is absolutely necessary.

  • Congrats on the new kitchen! I hope the BBQ-ing and embarrassing went well! Off to read said vagina rant now, bye!
