Stop Eating ShitStop Eating Shit2017-09-16Just bought myself an hour of peace for the princely sum of $1.98! Parenting level: Evil Wizard.
Two 99c bags of cornflour made into oobleck (or ooey gooey as my kids call it) through the magic of water and food coloring, two children shut outside with a license to run fucking riot. Meanwhile I got busy in the kitchen making a raw cheesecake slice that has been flirting with me for weeks - today that beauty will be mine!
Once they'd smeared themselves, and everything within a five meter radius in goop I let them loose with the hose for a prison shower/ waterfight buying myself another 20 minutes for a coffee. They also cleaned up their own mess - bonus!
Don't worry, I'm not a totally negligent parent, I watched through the the dry safety of the window and cut the water before they developed hypothermia 😂.
They had a ball and I had unhindered kitchen time without the interference of little fingers. Also got to lick all the spoons and scrapers without having to share.
Fuck yes for the return of sunny afternoons, come at me summer, I'm ready for you! ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ cleaneatsfromafilthymouthmumlifeevilgeniusmessyplayhellosunshinesunloversodoffwinterthatsbathtimetakencareoffunwithsludgeoneupallthelickingspoonsnosharesiessorrynotsorrykidscleantreatsrawcheesecakenotsharingthateithersuckershttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21688902_1589935324396322_3897609948409888768_n.jpg2017-09-16

https://instatbt.com/Place/sacriston/280882265SacristonI used to cut up words for a living, until they started shredding me. For twenty years I made radio programmes, slicing & dicing other people's words into coherent patterns, until I spent so long agonising over a sentence that I couldn't make sense of it. I still agonise - it's deep in my DNA - but flowers are so much more forgiving than words. After three days of biting temperatures, I walked back into the tunnel today full of dread for all the seedlings I've been nurturing, destined for brides of whom I've become fond. I expected the seedlings to be dead, but they were hanging in there, perky even. Jill, my landlady & supplier of all things comforting, brought me tea & shortbread as I walked round checking on everything before shutting up shop for the night. I sincerely hope that all the other hard-grafting flower growers across the country have been as lucky. April is indeed the cruellest month. durhamflowersweddingflowersgrimupnorthbritishflowerssodoffwinter

KirstyKirsty2017-02-14I've just got in from placement & presented with some beautiful tulips & a new top I really liked 🎁 As I said earlier, we just don't do Valentine's Day, my first words were I hope you didn't buy these when they were double the price! (High maintenance, me? Don't know what you mean...). So we have changed it to 'you're almost halfway through your dissertation flowers and presents' instead. spoilt .

We can't wait till we are clear of winter coughs and colds and we don't have to wrap up with a gazillion layers. So we're throwing it back to summer 2015 for summer vibes today.
