Hide it where?

Ok get your mind out of the gutter because I am not talking salami.

I am talking about tampons!
Almost all bathrooms here all have pedestal sinks and no cabinets. So where do you put your tampons and girly bits?

It blows my mind every time I look at houses. I always want to ask the woman,"excuse me where so you stash your tampons?". Haha

I mean it's bad enough I have to get ready in the bedroom and not the bathroom. Boooooooo

Someday these questions will be answered.

Times Change

Ok if you would have asked me a year ago if life would be like it is, I would have said you were smoking something...

I figure out school runs and dentist appointments. Oh and work and maybe have a social life as well. Also clean the house, do laundry, grocery shop and plan and cook the meals. Seriously who am I?

I am a planner but never really envisioned this type of planning. All I need is more cash - just like everyone else! Heck maybe a lottery winning of say 500k as we aren't greedy but would always welcome more.

I need from PC: a massage, bottle of wine, nice meal all served to me in a nice hotel room where we can eat in our undies or PJ's. I don't want to get dressed up or be fancy. I just want a pamper and to spend a quiet night alone with my hubby with some awesome food/drink and maybe even some nookie!

(all I can hear is the lyrics,"I did it all for the nookie!")

I am all about the relaxed night as I don't need fancy!

Happy Valentines Day

Spelling - yes please

Ok we all know the UK English can be spelled different then the American English or US English.

I get it - trust me.

Some of it even makes sense. 

Moisturising instead of moisturizing - I get it... "rising"

Prince Charming likes to always point out how the US version is wrong of course he is mostly tongue and cheek.  Until I pull out the big gun.

Centre ? Eh? That cannot be read as Center but yet it is read that way.

So ok some don't even make sense and I just laugh.  It's fun just playing this game isn't it?

What words make sense to you and what doesn't?

Can you grab my....

This is one of my favourite conversations in our house and of course I egg it on because it is funny for me.

Conversation #1:
Prince Charming: Honey can you grab my jumper when you come down
Me: (grabbing red hoodie) handing red hoodie
PC: no the blue jumper
Me: you mean the cardigan?
PC: no the sweater
Me: why didn't you just ask for the blue sweater ;-)

See Jumper is a fleece pullover, sweater or hoodie.  Pick one! ha

Gotta love the UK English when you are American
