Day 18, where I cut the boys hair

and they still love me. Not like my mother use to ::shudders:: But with clippers and a great deal of bribery on The Cub’s part. He HATES the idea of having his hair cut, and, as long as I cover his face with a towel to keep the hair off, he quite likes having it done because the clippers tickle. I really should do them both more often but, it’s a bit like clipping horses, hot, hairy work and not v pleasant. Still, it saves us quite a lot of money and the clippers paid for themselves in the first year. I used this web site to get started and have kind of winged it since then 😀

Tonight was supposed to be Pan Haggerty, but nobody really felt like it so we had beans on toast instead, which was a bit yum 😀

We went to see a van today, Robin’s new plan is to buy a van instead of a car. Don’t! I know, I KNOW! He has this idea he can trick it out and make is a short term holiday van. I do not see this happening, I will be fully supportive of him, but I really blame George Clarke and his bloody program.

Day 3, or the day we let the chippy shop take the strain

Not going to even try to justify this, it’s sausage chips and gravy for dinner tonight. The Cub has looked forward to it all holiday and we are going to P.I.G. O.U.T. I foresee a Buffy marathon with some beer in our future tonight as the wonderful man I live with, bought me the box set for Christmas. Eat your hearts out peasants 😀 No picture, because, although AWESOME, it requires no explanation.
