C – bloody bus went straight past this morning – a new driver. Last thing I needed when I had to be in two places at once. Does the bus driver not know how busy my day is and that driving to school is just not on my list of things to do? Also, could not believe it, that Michael Portillo was on Radio 4 this morning; a programme to do with the war – he must be raking it in – no wonder he can afford all those jackets.

S – yes, he certainly seems to be flavour of the month, if not the year. I am in the Nationwide Building Society for about the fourth time trying to get my sister’s account sorted. The manager who was dealing with it has got promotion and they are saying that the information he gave me is incorrect (how did he get promotion?). I have yet more forms to fill in and send to Olivia’s previous carer!

C – still filling if at the estate agents for the person on leave. I have just arrived at first viewing for this afternoon – am waiting for clients and there is a damn dog in the house – it looks a bit scary – help!

S – they should have had the fact that there is a dog in the house on the details – not very professional.

C – changing the subject, we did not have as many views yesterday (although number of followers has gone up). Do you think we need to have a more definite theme to our blog and what could it be?

S – well, the thing we know most about is cleaning but I don’t think that is the most riveting of subjects, although Kim and Aggie seem to have made a mint out of it! Maybe we could get free cleaning products arriving on our doorsteps – a bit like The Wine Wankers getting all that wine.

C – now wine piling up on my door step I could do with, but cleaning products – no thank you!

S – no, I can’t see myself getting excited about cleaning products either – maybe just stick to our present format for the moment!!


Is It Splash Or Flash?

C – did you watch that hysterically funny episode of Splash on Saturday night – a guy lost his trunks in the Splash Off? The commentator said they would not be revisiting the dive with the pool camera and asked that he fix the elastic in his trunks before next week. I could not put a name to his face, as I was too busy checking out the Budgie Smugglers he was wearing. He had lots of tattoos but I am hopeless with celebrities, don’t know who anybody is – I need to spend more time reading Hello Magazine. It was the best Saturday nights TV viewing in ages; on a par with Casualty. Has it been mentioned in the tabloids this morning, I wonder.

S – have not seen a paper today but have made a note to make sure I tune in to Splash next week. Not keen on Casualty myself – all that misery.

C – I do like a bit of doom and gloom – it is light entertainment in my book. I don’t have the luxury of Sky TV like you so my choices are limited.

S – if it was up to me the Sky TV would be cut off – it is only full of repeats and general rubbish. We don’t have the Movies or the Sport as it is too expensive. We just seem to watch endless re-runs of Friends.

Later ..

C – working at estate agents this afternoon as someone is on holiday. Am developing a large boil on my top lip, so that is not looking good but nothing I can do about it. The good news is I have made a sale so will be getting some commission – only £60 but better than “a poke in the eye with a sharp stick”, as they say.

S – well done! Boil sounds painful and not what you want when showing buyers around! Have got Amber coming round for tea at three, as I am not at work and I have not seen her in ages.

C – say hello from me; bet she is surprised at my new career in estate agents. Hope Amber’s new man is still ringing her bells. All I get is snoring – I really need to address the situation and send Toby for some medical advice!

S – yes, snoring is so very irritating and destroys one’s sleep.
