Oh, how irritating about the 3D glasses, two of the great Cine-Cons in my opinion, popcorn and 3D glasses and then of course there’s washing powder but don’t get me started on it because that’s a proper rip-off! We own no less than 11 pairs of 3D glasses in this family which lie needlessly in a tiny Thai looking basket by the front door waiting for the next time they can be put to good use. We have however already been to see quite a few 3D films since they were placed in the obvious front door spot but because I’m always rushing out of the door to jump into the car while Husband is pointing out how long I’m taking to squeeze into my size O jeans (yeah right!) and that I must hurry up or we’ll miss the film I forget the damn things, again and again and again! I must make use of them somehow perhaps I could wear them on the Costa this summer.
Ok, confession time and I have a whopper of one to make.
“He moved forward, his fringe falling over his eyes, and kissed my mouth……deeper and sexier. His tongue flickered around mine…..I wasn’t massively experienced, but this was, by miles, the best kiss I’d ever had…..His hand ran down my side, along my back….I gasped as his hands moved over me. I heard myself groan…his hands were everywhere now…running up and down my front, and down my back and under my top and across my stomach, and my top half pushed up and I was clawing at him too, pulling him towards me, and he was breathing hard and then his hands moved down…over my jeans…fumbling for the zip”. Oh God, I have given this book to my daughter for Easter, and she is not yet a teenager, not a new bible or Beautiful Birds of Britain no, I gave her this titillating read! Easter is rather a good time to give our children books as they are not expecting presents; consequently a new book is always received with greater manners and thanks than it might be at Christmas or for a birthday BUT I stupidly assumed that this book would be “her age” appropriate. My daughter has recently read, and thoroughly enjoyed, the brilliant Sophie McKenzie’s“Girl Missing” and “Sister Missing” so I didn’t think twice when I saw the £4 price tag at Tesco’s for her latest book “Falling Fast”, perfect for the Easter Table I thought, but whilst tidying up late afternoon I had a little peak and rooted to the ground I read the above!
So there we are, now you know, what kind of a mum doesn’t read an entire book before giving it to her child, yes ME? My plan now is either to steal it back and tell her with my fingers crossed behind my back that I have sadly lost the new book somewhere between the kitchen and her bedroom…….precisely one flight of stairs, or the truth. I do remember reading the Dear Jackie articles about this sort of thing when I was younger and truthfully I can’t have been much older than my daughter is now but suffice to say I’m not ready for it, even if she is!
A quick recommendation before the summer arrives for a week, Dog Rocks, which you you put into a dogs drinking water and it prevents the round, urine burn patches on the lawn. Dog Rocks do exactly what they say they do, I have been using the rocks in my dog’s water for two years now and we do not have a single urine patch on the grass! The rocks usually take about a month to take effect so the sooner you put them in the water the better as those doggies will be weeing all over the already parched grass before you can say Scooby Doobie Doo!
