The unobservant man

Tonight we got our tickets for the Wedding Dress ball in aid of Crohns and colitis UK. I got out my dress to see how it’s faring.

Mark: why are you going to wear that

Me: Because it’s a wedding dress ball

Mark: well that’s not your wedding dress (we had this conversation on New Years Eve!)

Jack: Yes it is! But will it still fit mum?

Well thanks everyone!

On my wedding day I had long hair and Marks sister Jenny put it up for me. It is now in a pixie cut. I have just asked Mark “I wonder if Jenny would put my hair up for me tomorrow night. I know it’s short notice …

Mark: She might do. Ask her?

It wasn’t until I stood right in front of him, pointing to my cropped hair, asking “seriously?” that the penny even dropped.

Bring on the Belle of the Ball 不不

Ditzy Journey

Blood tests this morning. Notes in my work and personal diary yesterday and today, alarm and alerts on my phone to remind me as did hubby. Left on time (earlier than usual work run), got in the car and drove 2 miles towards work before realising I was supposed to be going the opposite way to the doctors for bloods!

Ditzy Trap

So I booked tickets for my friend and I to see the Mousetrap on Friday 12th July at 7.30. The tickets arrived yesterday and I was about to file them in a safe place (that I will probably forget) when I saw the message PLEASE CHECK YOUR TICKETS. I so nearly ignored this as usual but something just made me check whilst laughing at myself for bothering. Just as well I did – I appear to have booked the matinee on Saturday 13th! I’m sure in is their mistake but we’ll go with it 不不

Scantily clad humour

Went to Ann Summers party last night and this morning showed my hubby Mark the bikini I had ordered

Mark: That’s a bit scanty isn’t it? For the beach I mean?

(It’s not. It’s just different from my usual cover all the lumps and bumps ones)

Me: in other words you think I’m too fat for it?

Mark: how on earth did you make it mean that?

Does he not know 2 plus 2 makes 5?!

Calendar Girls at the Women’s Institute

Went to see Calendar Girls the musical yesterday at Norwich Theatre. The show was brilliant and during the intermission my sister in law asked me if we should join the WI. She encouraged me to do a search for our local branch but I couldn’t get 4G. I tried again today and then suddenly thought ‘I hope she’s not expecting us to get naked!’ #theatre #show #ditzy #humour #calendargirls #norwich #musicals #womensinstitute

Ladies Day Out

After a very foggy fibro morning of losing everything and forgetting what I was doing I eventually arrived to pick up the ladies. All packed in the car but, despite many attempts Aunty could not get the middle seat belt to click in. Three of us looked at it to no avail and eventually we decided to head off with Aunty holding said seat belt in position. And then the ping ping ping sound became relentless at which point Aunty suddenly discovered there were two buckles on the belt. She tried the other one and eureka! We got to The Assembly House for high tea and not being posh, me and another Aunty poured our tea from the pots, completely ignoring the tea strainers. The best bit was watching my sister in law re-strain it into another cup (not mine though – I didn’t confess until Aunty did!) We are now at Norwich theatre watching Calendar Girls the Musical and I am sat next to the only random lone man with coat on his lap waiting for the second nude half. He should get a good view as we are in the circle but I’ve hidden the binoculars 不不
