Leftover Halloween mummified meatballs for lunch. Wrapped strands of cooked tagliatelle around meatballs with with tiny cheese cubes for eyes. Hard to hold a very hot meatball and then keep the pasta in place but achieved the desired effect so declared it a success. Much bigger leftover portion than first realised, should have used a bigger pan. Put the carved pumpkins on the kitchen window sill outside. Including the Trumpkin - Donald Trump in pumpkin form. Very effective hair and teeth and the perfect skin tone. Quite comforting having them all looking in, like new housemates who live in the garden.
Am officially on Depop. Of course am not nearly savvy or hip enough to do it myself but have found a marvellous girl who does it all for you. She came round last week and took a very large laundry bag of stuff on the tube (she’s a marvel) and then put it all online. She does the postage and you pay her directly. WHAT a service. Unfortunately hadn’t realised an old nighty with most of the buttons missing was in the bag. She suggested it could fetch £3 but said best send to charity and say no more about it. Chicken and lentils for tea. Sounds rubbish was actually good. Viennese Whirl for pudding. An ode to Bake Off being over.
Managed to knock my white hair clip down the toilet. Clean gone. Making do with a bulldog clip which is a bit too tight. Pulling whole face back. Like The Vivienne on Drag Race UK. June rang. She had quite the ordeal whilst walking Ruby the Labrador. Got chatting to another lady with her Labrador Lottie. As they talked about training techniques and Lottie’s very very long lead, Lottie became very excited and ran around June several times trapping her in said lead. As June says “it was like a spider catching a fly.” In an attempt to preserve her blow dry June tried to steady herself but to no avail, she fell over in the mud and was late for lunch with Carol. It never ends.
Woke to find the milk had gone and no Marmite left. A breakfast apocalypse. Something must be done. Warmed dungarees on the radiator before putting them on. That is being an adult. The buckles got very hot and proved quite difficult to do up. A lesson learned. Went to the nail place to get a chipped thumb and two fingers put back on. The rest will do another week. £6 for three nails. Seemed a lot but didn’t say anything. Thankfully had the change. Bought fake Magnums from Lidl. They’re very good. Must be made in the same factory. Jon called them Blagnums. And that is why I married him.
Bought new dress for weekend wedding. Gorgeous but full of static. Crackling around the legs and gusset. Needs a slip. Of course June owns 45 but none of them are nearby so turned to M&S who of course came through. Good old M&S. Arrived in store to find a bewildering array of lengths from mid thigh (odd) to ankle length. Plumped for something in the middle. Also bought a gingerbread man with a broken head because felt sorry for him. Celebrated Friday by making Shepherd’s Pie. Put some salami from the back of the fridge in to give a continental twist. Worked a treat.
PLANS FOR WEEKEND:
- Buy new hair clip
- Decide which season of RuPaul to watch next
- Re-stock Marmite
- Fully investigate tickets for Sister Act with Whoopi Goldberg
- Finish Mrs Maisel before Prime 30-day trial ends
