The flowers are beautiful. That is all.
Project Nice Friend
Sam is away and is fully stocked with nice things so I’m turning my attentions towards my dear Canadian pal Andrea. She has written an awesome short story and is currently battling head to head in an online deathmatch for some literary prizes which she fully deserves. It’d take you 30 seconds to click the link below and vote for her story (read it too if you like, it’s mega) and help to make a beautiful stranger happy. If it helps you to like her more, she shares garlic doughballs on the tram with complete strangers, she traveled over 3000 miles to be at my wedding, she has a cat called ‘Little Buddy’ and she introduced me to Sourpuss, Kings and Poutinnnnne. She rules. Please vote:
Days 293, 294, 295, 296, 297, 298, 299 and 300 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
Stag survival pack! As mentioned in the previous post, Sam is off to Eastern Europe for a week of skiing and silliness with Will the Stag and 2 other chums. I have secreted these items in Sam’s luggage (all temptation to pack airline contraband for a ‘laugh’ was resisted…)
Nice things for the week are as follows;
- Jagermeister (obviously)
- paracetamol (see above)
- ibruprofen (for those aching joints and muscles, these chaps are getting on a bit now)
- berocca (to ward off those hangovers)
- humbugs (for mountain-based sugar needs)
- carmex (total skiing necessity)
- stagg chilli
- waterproof disposable camera (shotgun not being the one to take it to be developed…)
I will see Sam (hopefully all in one piece, probably smellier and hungoverer) on Sunday so I’m psyching myself up for a lovely girly weekend with the bride to be, a mental week at work, a bit of grumping and a reunion back at home next weekend. Bye Sam!
Day 292 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
We’re off the Minch! Our lovely friends Will and Chrissie are getting wed next month (look, there they are as students, awwww) and Sam is one if the best men. The boys are abandoning us ladies tomorrow for a week in the mountains of Slovenia… Sam’s nice thing today was a different variety of Green & Blacks to munch on the journey down from Manchester. Slight fail? I left it in the boot of the car… I’ve hidden it in his luggage instead :)
Day 291 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
Pancake daaaaaay! Chocolate pancakes (yes I cheated with Betty Crocker, balls to it!) with fruit, chocolate, nutella, maple syrup…
I knew we were getting old when we outwardly relished the thrill of making pancakes so easily in a non-stick pan. Life in the fast lane!
Day 290 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
Boys can receive flowers too. Sam has become very house-proud of late and we both enjoy a splash of colour wen flowers are in the kitchen or hallway. These felt particularly fitting given the gorgeous spring evening and lightness driving home today!
Day 289 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
Tunnock’s caramel wafer biscuits are one of my favourite things about the world. They are a true British classic and sell more than 5,000,000 per week despite doing no advertising whatsoever. I find this stunningly wonderful. Sam gets a wafer treat as today’s nice thing.
Day 288 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
Water and tlc after Sam over-indulged in the beers at my dad’s awesome wedding that took place today. Sam was exhausted from all his ‘dancing’ and drinking, and wanted to pass out. But nice wives make their husbands down 4 glasses of water first :D
(P.s. What a day! Photos of Sam to hopefully follow soon - he took most of the ones which have emerged so far!)
Day 287 of the ‘something nice every day’ challenge
Yuck, yuck and yuck! Pineapple is my least favourite fruit ever in the world! I would definitely rather eat a proper apple and would probably rather eat pine…
Anyway in the name of Sam’s health and enjoyment I have purchased a pineapple, hope he enjoys the whole thing to himself… Also - 41 weeks down! :O 11 to go!
