Roller Coaster...

I have been on a complete emotional roller coaster of late. Why did they invent Valentine's Day and then decide to celebrate it in the middle of Lent? I am being forced to abstain from chocolate treats and confectionery (by my fundamentalist Roman Catholic mother) just when I am entitled to receive some (grrr)!

Just a few days ago I collected our new Polish au pair from Herne Hill Station (I certainly wasn't driving to Luton airport) and just as I suspected, the minx was actually incredibly attractive despite the agency's assurance that she was plain and portly. As usual I graciously accepted a selection of gifts including an enormous home made sausage from Magda's papa, and a framed photo of Pope John Paul 11. Naturally I have tossed them into the garage on top of a groaning pile of evil eye amulets, crochet lace doilies and jars of home made sauerkraut. I would be delighted to welcome an Italian girl who could present me with a bottle of hand pressed olive oil, but I am painfully aware that Italian women have a reputation for athletic and noisy lovemaking - not in my house... never again.

Straight from work tonight I scooted to Claridge's bar where I consumed several Mojito Royales to celebrate being shortlisted for this! OHMYGOD! I can't begin to describe to you how elated I am to have been shortlisted in a category alongside such marvelous and esteemed bloggers. I am well aware that my tiny bloglet will not win; I am simply over the moon to have been nominated to stand shoulder to shoulder with these terrific ladies.

Congratulations DM, brilliant news and well deserved. Can you make mine a Caiparinha though?

Perfect Potty Mummy,

You are too kind! Would you like some olives with that?

Rosie said...

Oh no! I don't believe it DM. I was in Claridges Bar just the other day. I must have missed you. It's typical isn't it?

I'll give you a call next time I'm popping in for a light lunch and I PROMISE to set aside a bottle of their finest champagne to celebrate your continued success!

I'll be wearing red in case you want to colour-coordinate outfits. It always looks best in that setting I feel.

Congratulations again!

I should have invited you, what was I thinking? I owe you a drink or three afterall!

Thanks you dear Aims,

You are a chum!

Good luck my lady (sorry, have been watching Henry VIII on DVD this evening). I thought I saw you earlier tonight in Starbucks at Sainsburys but it was a figment of my imagination.....

Sweet cyber sister,

Indeed I was working late tonight. I was with you in spirit - drinking a grande latte and sinking my perfect veneers into a piece of my favourite blueberry cheese cake!
