Well we had wonderful weather over the weekend, and today is another SCORCHA, as the lower grade new papers would say.
Had a great weekend, including a day out shopping on Saturday where my daughter went to the make-up department of one of the big shops here and had a "free" make-over. I say "free" because afterwards we bought her a new set of concealer, foundation and brush that made it anything but "free". But it was worth it, she had a great time and the new "look" is really good.
While all this was going on, I took the boys to the computer game shop and then off for something to eat - we all pigged out while the girls weren't looking and making us feel guilty :-)
Sunday was just as good, except the food was more healthy but just as delicious - a fabulous chicken salad with baby new potatoes, vinaigrette dressing, etc. Hmmmm! Then, in the evening, just to ruin it all, I made a huge strawberry trifle. Hmmmmmmm! So bad but so GOOD!
Today I had to go to the bank in my lunch break. The queue was massive and there were only two and a half people on the tills!
As I neared the front of the queue I turned to the guy behind me:
"I was 16 when I joined this line."
"I was conceived here."
"Oh, I wondered what those noises had been, but you don't like to look do you?"
Then the girl in front of me went to the counter - can I have some money, I don't know my account number, I don't have any proof of who I am, but I want to go shopping. After several days of questioning the cashier was happy that she was who she said she was but then found that she didn't have any money in her account to withdraw! Oh, I should have some money...
Then it was my turn to get served, so I never found out what happened to her. I think she probably got lynched by the rest of the customers!
Have a great Monday everyone!
