Today has been a bit of a strange one really…a sort of hodgepodge of a day,where I can’t seem to settle to do anything!….
For a start I woke up at 5am! I know the clocks had gone back an hour and everyone loves an extra hour’s sleep, but because I always end up getting up so early it is a bit of a pain…still, I filled my time constructively,playing games on my tablet, whilst watching a bit of catchup tv!…
Mr Grump had to get up early today as well (if you call 8am on a Sunday early, I call it a lie-in)!!! He and my nephew were off to a friend’s house to do something with their roof ( God only knows what they were doing, but as it involved heights and DIY combined, I decided not to ask and just to leave them to get on with it)! At least it got Mr Grump out of my hair for a while, although I was a bit cross that he was doing odd jobs for someone else when there is a little matter of some painting that needs to be done at home still!!
Anyway after Miss Hap and I had feasted on a delicious fry up, we decided that we really ought to have a bit of a pamper session. As neither of us are able to wear nail varnish during the week normally what with school and work, we decided to make the most of having a bit of time off and out came our collection of polishes.(I only had two bottles of rather boring pink, so had to rely on my 11-year-old daughter’s rather extensive collection of nearly every colour imaginable)!
As we had such a varied choice, we decided that it would be criminal not to use as much colour as possible,so we painted each others’ toenails in five different shades, (Miss Hap rather liked the blue and painted an extra bit on one of my toes too for good measure)! I As she has only got little toenails, I managed to blob a bit of polish on each one, but we were both pleased with the results, and I decided that I would go for the lovely blue for my fingernails, (We had a bit of a disaster with that though, I thought they had dried and went to take the joint out of the oven, but where I had put my hands in the oven mitts, it had smudged a bit). Never mind, I just went over the dodgy bits and they are as good as new!
Mr Grump came home just after lunchtime unscathed, and decided that he was going to play on his Playstation (he very rarely plays on it but when he does it is usually a marathon session). I casually mentioned that I might like to go and look at some paints this afternoon….nothing! I asked if he had a particular colour in mind for the hall etc….nope!! He did however moan at me this morning when I dared to mention how grubby the paintwork is looking, “I thought it had gone past springtime” he says huffily “Well we need to do an Autumn clean as well as a Spring one this year” I replied.
With no offers of decorating forthcoming, I decided to sulk for a bit and set about the ironing!! Of course, he wasn’t bothered about me viciously brandishing the iron about on our poor, unsuspecting clothes, steaming them into submission with a frenzy…oh, no, of course not, he was sat in front of the tv, eyes bulging, killing baddies…..Men!
