Hestias week in numbers
1 - The number of times I told M that if he criticised my white lines in any way, shape or form, I'd toe the paintbrush right up his arse.
Of course, I didn't REALLY say that at all. But I thought the thought REALLY hard to myself whenever he came up to check on the standard of my work......I think my expression might have spoken a thousand words that ended with the sentiment of having a paintbrush inserted in an exit... ;-D
1 - telephone call from Christina Lindsay on Monday morning - just as lovely to chat to in real life as she is in her blog ;-)
2 Number of veg boxes I am now running behind. It's like a slightly decaying Farmers Market in the kitchen and has given rise to.....
2,000,000 - number of small flies that have taken up residence in the kitchen thanks to slowly rotting veg boxes.
3 - fly papers up in kitchen.
Too numerous to mention - tiny fly corpses.
5 number of times I've eaten turnip this week.
2 numbers of pairs of socks that I've tried to put on this morning
3 - times I've gone to my knicker drawer to get knickers and come away with socks instead.
3 - number of days I've been utterly distracted from real life (ie tidying, sleeping, eating) by Twitter.
1 - jaunt to hairdressers to get hair tidied up - the Vet's big wedding is at the end of this month.
3 - times out jogging - even in the pissing RAIN ladies and gentlemen *waits for applause*
4 - days until Tertarus hits these shores again
1 - number of rooms actually tidy enough to receive his presence......
3 - number of those days that I need to spend with Juno (not seen her in AGES - been away a cruise, again)
1 - number of actual days left to clean/fumigate remaining rooms
1 - moment of total hilarity when Sonshine asked me who Deranged Kelly was. Took some popmaster-worthy questioning to establish that it was, in fact, Lorraine Kelly he was meaning. Tweeted fact to LK and LK, lovely lady, tweeted back, saying that Sonshine was very perceptive. That's my second favourite tweet. Favourite tweet was from Dita Von Teese. *shrugs* Am sad bastard, what can I say? Pls note - it has not been this tweet from LK that has had me dwelling in Twitterland this week. I cannot tell you any more because I'd have to kill you.
100% excitement at Strictly returning to our screens last night and tonight! Matt Baker was SMOKIN' but am suffering Gabby Logan deja vu....am hoping that his naturally humble personality will win public support. Plus, since we are psychic clothing twins, cannot NOT support my sweetheart in wellies. Cannot wait to see Doris Karloff tonight and Pam Stephenson getting hot with James Jordan at ANY latin dance!
4 - number of times I have found myself upstairs with no recollection of why I am going there, so just go to loo. Have turned into a toilet junkie.
1 - signed up for NaNoWriMo novel writing month with motley crew of friends. Should be a blast!
1 - poem written ;-) It's a bit crap, but it's a start!
So - what about you?

It's like a big massive snowdrop. No idea what it is. Providing I can beat the blackbird this year, the red currants are goin...
So, you will have seen the viral video of the Korean expert being invaded by his children. It's hilarious, right? And I - and man...
Everything was going pretty well until we started the brief drive back from Edinburgh Zoo to Leith docks, where we are currently residing. ...
