C – Phoebe having a melt down over maths – will be ringing the school after half-term as I am fed up with all the drama.

S – Sophie shut in her room doing homework all afternoon; at least that is what she is telling me. Jamie away on school trip. Just watching Jennifer Aniston film on TV and she is wearing a grey wrap like mine – I told you it was trendy.

C – well, Phoebe and I thought it was a little strange but if Jen is wearing one, who are we to judge? I notice that we have had a viewer of our blog from Thailand – I wonder if it could have been George checking up on us?

S – could have been. Think it will be an early night for me – struggling with staying awake. Michael was snoring in my ear last night. I had to go downstairs and take to the day bed for some peace and quiet.

C – it is a bugger and it happens to me all the time. Toby sleeps in the chair until 2.00 ish then wakes me up coming to bed, and within seconds is snoring in my ear. It is torture and I do not have a day bed to take to! Was chatting to a friend about this exact problem, she said she has it sorted, she has purchased a pair of ear plugs, could this be the up and coming bedroom must have accessory?

S – I think it could be. Will double check early tomorrow that the leisure centre is still closed – I assume it will be, unless emergency repairs have been made to the roof! Will let you know if Spinning is still on.

C – oh, forgot to say I now have to work tomorrow so can’t Spin anyway. Maybe you could give it a whirl on your own and let me know how it goes.

S – I might have known you would get out of it somehow. I think it will be a case of rebooking when the roof is fixed, so no backing out!!!


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.
