11 weeks ago this coming Sunday we ordered 2 new leather sofas and were promised about an 11 week wait only. I just checked with DFS and they are being delivered to the Ruislip warehouse on Friday 11/11 and we should have them either Saturday 12th or Monday 14th (except DH has a medical appt that day so fingers crossed for the 12th)
Had a giggle at the hairdressers today.
Meena (owner) normally has the salon all decked out by now for Crimbo and usually keeps to 3 colours for a theme.
Last year it was burgundy, white and silver, very elegant.
Anyway no decorations were up and I said she was slipping. She joked that she had bought some ready but must have over medicated (joking about a health issue she has) and that she bought a whole rainbow of coloured baubles and stars to hang from the ceiling and now regrets it but has lost the receipt so can’t get her money back. She’s bought 75 stars, each one about 3 inches across to go in the window………you wouldn’t see in through the bloody window with that many up
SO she’s figured rainbow baubles would be the choice of a young kid so she’s going to turn the salon into a Santa’s Grotto and she’ll wear a Santa costume and the other stylists will be elves. I can just picture it now! What a riot!
Right I’m off to let some useless TV program wash over me b4 bed
Me; It seems a lot of my pals on SP are doing a pre Crimbo (Christmas) clear through and declutter.
DH; Yep, time for the men to go hide in their sheds and pretend it ain't happening.
Me; It's not THAT bad!!!!!!!
DH;* swings an imaginary bell* SANCTUARY, SANCTUARY RUN FOR THE SHED, BOLT THE BLOODY DOOR *laughing* MAN THE BARRICADES!
Me;.. * *;so you won't be helping to put the tree up come the end of November I take it or the prezzie list??
DH; *screams in horror* AAAARRRGGGHHH, Nnooooo this is womens' work. All men will be crying out " get what the hell you like just leave me out of it, I'll sign the bloody gift tags and that's the limit.
Me; You have it made, you only have to go to the local garage and get some last minute prezzie for me on Crimbo Eve.........*thinks ...like most men*
DH; you mean I actually have to venture out THAT FAR! AND GET YOU SOMETHING?????
I have a feeling I will organising Crimbo AGAIN this year.......like most women
Try one new recipe a week from SP or Jamie Oliver's books- then I know it'll be healthy
Try one new food/drink/herb a week- variety is the spice of life
Do some form of cardio 5-6 times a week, one for 60mins (probably on the bike as fast as possible aiming for 20k)
Get at least one good walk in, hopefully in the sun to collect some vit D
Do a superset a week; like this one;
alternate every 2 exercises 3 times
12 x Bent-Over Row
12 x Decline Bench Press
12 x Preacher Curl
12 x Diamond Push-Up
12 x Quadruped
12 x One-Legged Calf Squat
12 x crunches with twists
12 x Roll-Up
12 x shoulder press
12 x Forward raises
12x dumbbell side bends
one multi gym a week and two core workouts.
well exercise is fun but
meet up with Jackie for some meals out
Go for a drive out with DH if he's up to it
Take Lilian out to her fav restaurant.
Need to dos
Rake the lawn and tidy the garden
have a bonfire of all the wood from the decorating we've done, or take it to the tip. It'd be cool to have the bonfire on Guy Fawkes Night and bake some tatties (jacket potatoes) in the embers and have some drumsticks and salad while we watch over the fire.............OR go to an organised Firework display.
buy Christmas cards and get ready to post
be on the look out for Christmas gifts
Check with John and Vicki about Crimbo arrangements, spoke to Vicki on Sunday and going to Norfolk is now in doubt.
Support Lilian while she has work done on her bathroom- keep an eye on the workmen.
