Mammy

Yesterday, I was running around the house looking for my lip balm. Checked my bed .. nothing but a rotten apple core in there. (True). So, I did what any harried mother would do, and hastily applied some nappy rash cream to my parched lips. Walked out to the kitchen, Mr TC was there, having a cup of tea with his friend. He took one look at me, stood up, and burst into a rousing rendition of "Mammy, how I love ya how I love ya ...."

Complete with hand waving actions.

Apparently, my new 'lip balm' had coated my lips in a fetching colour of white, and I was giving a great Al Jolsen impression. SO embarrassed, they both laughed at me. Wankers.

I then took Tiger to swimming lessons. Usually I take Monkey too, but it's a bit tricky. Especially when you forget the bottle of formula. (Fun times.) I ended up soaking in the spa bath at the pool, first time I've done that in, oh, more than a year.

Mr TC asked how it was when I got back. I told him great, until a BIG FAT HAIRY GUY hopped in next to me, and all I could think was I was having a hot bath in his ball sweat.

Mr TCs shoulders slumped a little, reminded yet again by what a foul-mouthed creature he had married. Who's laughing now, eh?

Took some video today, and will try to post it. It's Monkey, looking VERY grown up in his big boy jeans. He wants me to just get the camera out of his face, I'm sure. He is so big now! Hoorah! Three months old ... they say that the first three months of a newborns life is the fourth trimester. Babies are literally born waterlogged.


**** Ok. Can't post video. Been trying for 2 hours now, eyes hanging out of head. I admit defeat, Until tomorrow, Mighty Blogger.

As someone else who MUST have lip gloss/balm available 24/7, I completely understand your desperation!

The spa sounds good. Right up until the ball sweat moment. Ewwwww

Can't wait for you to figure out video. I so wanna see the boys!

Love

I have always had a problem with hot tubs since I found out they are bacteria heaven. You don't even want to know what grows in the warm moist area of the tub and I can't get the people out of my mind that jump in when they have rashes and other cooties---ewwwwww.

My Mum once did the lip balm dash (in a very dark room) and accidently picked up a bright red lipstick. We nearly wet our pants when she came out to say goodnight, ruby red lipped!

Okay, I can't be the only one wondering what the heck is up with that apple core?! Seriously, how did that get in your bed?

Can't wait to see your video! Hope your eyes go back in by the morning.

I was reading away thinking 'oh yeah, a good soak in a spa bath is just what I need...' then almost spat my tea all over the screen.

You most certainly are a foul-mouthed creature, one of your finest attributes I think.

Hahaha you make me laugh! No mean feat today i can tell you.

Oh how you make me laugh....I also had an episode with something white on my face today....not x rated or anything fun like that...just humiliating. Glad you got to relax a bit, even if it was in "sweaty ball tub"

Wordgirl said...

I'm with evil stepmonster...it is one of your loveliest attributes -- among SO, so many. Oh Topcat -- you are so dear to me.

I love reading of your life -- and yes, someday, we'll get to meet one another in person...

If the video is over 100mg it won't let you post it but it won't error out either, it just keeps trying and trying. You have to load it onto youtube and then post the link. On my blog you will see some are blogger videos and some are youtube because of this. If your video is less than 100mg then I don't know what to tell you :)
