So sorry Georgie….it was full on all day yesterday . After the usual trip to Sains ( that has even changed , I used to wander up and down , now i run the gaunnlet, avoiding bumping into anyone that knows me and I haven’t spoken to since Rosie died- it is ‘too big’ just to skim in a couple of mins . I wanted Worcs. sauce and Sharon , from playgroup and her husband were standing , talking and choosing , in that aisle for ages and so I didnt get any ! ). Then flo and i shot off to the art shop in Brentford . We have 4 bottles of fixable fabric paint, so if anyone wants to paint their name on their Rosie Running Tshirt , give me a shout.
Then we went to The Social event of the year – The Brigstock BBQ ! We sat in the garden , listening to reggae music and had fab international food – our faves were Singaphore Noodles , jerk Chicken and homemade apple pie and cream – all low cal – not ! The creepy local Tory MP candidate came and sat with us , and introduced himself and said to Florence ”now you’ve got someone good-looking to talk to” ! He then introduced himself to Grandma ”Hi I’m Jason Haddon” , to which she replied ”haddock , that’s a funny name”. Mind you he did go up in her estimation when he told her he is the Mon night lawyer on the Petrie Smiley Show on LBC – Grandma loves listening to LBC ( except for the sexual problems phone in on Fri night when she switches to radio 2 ). Del came too , she has resumed her sainthood , having taken Ma back to see Anthony after her eye op. he told her he was so exhausted after the whole proceedure , he had to go and have a lie down …..little did he know of how tired he would have been , if i hadn’t got out in time and he’d had to pick me up of off of the floor !
We whizzed home , past Venus and Serena , to see 2 beautiful pieces of artwork from the 21st Bday boy himself, Michael.Then we whizzed off again to dine at The Days alfresco….phew.
( after reading this ,the question on everyones lips must be – why would a couple want to shop in Sainsburies together and spend hours in the sauce aisle decididing on which one to buy – very odd )
