This Week #44

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
Life This Week

Aside from a bout of sickness at the beginning, this week hasn't been too bad. We had a seminar on Bron Afon (the main housing association locally) on Monday followed by Labour group, then Tuesday was planning committee. The health visitor came for Marianna's language check up - so of course Marianna refused to say anything - and I actually had the house to myself for a few hours when Anthony took Marianna out for a bit.

Anthony's mum bought me a doll house at the auction recently, as a project. I spent a few hours this week gluing lollipop sticks to the front of it. Hopefully I'll have chance to do the inside soon and then I'll post the finished product on the blog.

This Week, I 'ave Been Mostly...

☆ READING: Truth & Tails books - you can check out my review HERE.

☆ WRITING: I did The TMI Blogging Tag. It made me all nostalgic for the days of MySpace!

☆ WATCHING: Jeeves and Wooster, the Hugh Laurie & Stephen Fry version.

☆ LISTENING: The Floral Dance - Terry Wogan. Marianna has a wind up lamp which plays the tune; it was originally my mum's when she was a kid.

☆ WEARING: Plasters. There were some glue mishaps on Thursday.

☆ EATING: Walkers SunBites. I love those things.

☆ REVIEWING: Marianna was sent a super cute Disney Nemo Swim Bag by LittleLife UK. The fabric is splash resistant and the bag itself is surprisingly spacious with a 10 litre capacity. I'm sure Nemo is going to get plenty of use! :)

On the Blog

This week I posted a guide to New Moons era Sindy dolls, and a run down of 10 Welsh Superheroes. The host theme for this week's Friday Frivolity linky post was cows, in celebration of Cow Appreciation Day.
