Thank Crunchie it's Friday!

I saw this on Gill's blog so thought I'd have a go. Tee hee! I rather like it & had to have it in pink of course ;o)

I'm afraid I've been very naughty & haven't picked up Mabel at all. I've been busy catching up on other things, so I told Andy this morning that there is another birthday surprise, but it won't be ready for another few days yet ;o) I've also got to be very sweet to him as I've just managed to break his vaccuum cleaner! It's pretty old & we need a new one really, so I had a go at breaking it (accidentally of course!) a few months ago when one of the wheels came off. That wasn't enough though, despite us having to drag it, in a lopsided sort of way, around the house to do the hoovering. Well, today I got a little... het up shall we say... when the internal power lead wouldn't pull out so I pulled a little bit harder & the other end where the head is fell over from being leant against the wall. It didn't fall over particularly hard, but after I'd plugged it in & went to pick it up I found it had broken into two pieces! Ooops. I've tried fixing with sellotape but it didn't really work, so I guess I'll be getting a new vaccuum this weekend! :o(

As it's Andy's birthday today we'll probably be out tonight. Although we're both really tired - he didn't get in till really late (gone midnight) & he was up again at 6 for work, so of course I had to get up to make brekkie for him etc. Anyway, I couldn't get back to sleep after he'd gone so we're both going to be rather weary later. It's his friend's Dave's birthday tomorrow & they usually see each other for a drink or something similar. He's invited us for a drink out in Brighton this evening which would be really lovely as long as we can muster up the energy!! Eeeek! I sound more like I'm 65 than 35 (no offence to any more mature readers)... perhaps I ought to go for a 'power nap' right now. ;o)

Thanks Anne :o) I was referring to Brighton in the UK but I don't think that's the one you mean.
