I'm mooching around online at dressmaking fabrics and the sight of a whole traditional Japanese kimono and umbrella get-up someone's made for a Sylvanian has made me more happy than anything else this week.

^ I'm sorry to hear that your Grand-dad passed away recently Tubbs but that was certainly a lovely Facebook tribute that your brother did for him


I smiled this morning when my husband, bless him, came back from the shop a while ago with a lovely bouquet of flowers for me because I've been feeling so depressed lately

I got myself into a bit of a physical fight with the trolley bank at Tesco. I put in my pound but the line of trolleys would not release the trolley from its grip.

I was yanking and yanking at the trolley and was just about to lift my leg up to add some extra force with my foot and this man came along. Without saying a word, he gave me this look and calmly put his hand between the two trolleys and separated them.

I said thaaaaaaanks and he said nothing.

^ nope, it wasn't one of the guys that works on the trolleys - it was an actual member of the public!

But after I loaded the shopping into the car, the trolley man came over to my car to take the trolley from me so I didn't have to take it back.

Must have been pulling my damsel in distress face or something!

That story was like something straight out of a Disney film. The silent stranger and the damsel in distress. May he forever remain a man of mystery. The almost lover.

My son was looking for a peach pen to colour in a monkey's face, I found it and went upstairs to give it to him, he shook his head disappointedly and said 'well, I appreciate that mummy but I've had to make do with the yellowy-orange one instead', obviously very dissatisfied with his wildly inaccurate depiction of a cartoon chimpanzee.

It really wasn't a romantic situation in any way . I was proper fighting the trolleys and he was Dad-aged.

I thought it had more of a LOTR vibe.

The battle for the Tesco Trolley is over: the battle for Middle Earth is about to begin.

Sounds more King Arthurish to me.

Maybe he saved you from a fate worse than shopping.

Either way, I guess the poor trolley ends up getting thrown into a lake.

My five year old's sense of humour. He recently brought home a colour-in Starry Night by Van Gogh from school, so I told him about his ear, expecting him to be horrified. His response: 'Why did he do that? Did he get sick of the sound of his own voice?', then fell about laughing.

My Mum arguing with the manager in Tesco for stocking a floor mop, but not the liquid that goes with it. He tried to suggest an alternative liquid that she could use. She interrupted him mid-sentence.

"Don't you tell me how to clean my floor."

poor guy.

She's so funny. I was like, "Mum, he was just trying to help by letting you know what else you could use instead."

"He was just showing off," she said.

Haha... ladies, let me impress you with my extensive knowledge of household floor cleaning products.

Then she said, "I went in there on Friday and this lady was mugging me off with 'it's in aisle nine or 10'!"

(((Mugging me off!))) Haha! She thinks she's bloody Danny Dyer.

I don't know, I'm sure there are some women out there who'd drop their knickers at a man who has an extensive knowledge of cleaning products. I haven't met any of these women yet but statistically I'm sure they exist.

You've got to love mum's some days. Mine recently piped up and said she doesn't like the trainee pharmacist because he looks too young. I tried to point out to her that if he's a trainee it's a safe bet he's going to be young.

Just out of interest what part of the country is she from?

Quite right, you should brush your teeth and do your hair.

I volunteered to escort P1s through the parade for my town's gala on Saturday, they were so well-behaved apart from stopping every two seconds to pick up a cool stick. It was so much fun.
A girl walked past us wearing a Tae-Kwon Do outfit and a wee boy goes 'look, it's a ninja!', my son replies 'that's not a ninja, silly, it's a grown-up karate guy'.

The same wee boy spotted a Saltire flying from someone's window and he yells 'a Scotland flag! I LIVE IN SCOTLAND!', I said 'me too! what a coincidence!', he looked at me wide-eyed and said 'Really?!'

Haha kids are terrible but often so great. Little bullies. My little nephew made a big issue of me having chocolate around my mouth all day. It was brown lipstick. Can always count on a kid to tell you the truth of just how pathetically idiotic that overpriced, celebrity endorsed product makes you look.
