Reverse psychology (Lady Fi)

After the kids promised to ‘sleep in’ and spent all night getting up, I decided to change tactics.

I begged them to get up really early.

Result? A lie-in until 6.40 am!

Ah, the power and joy of reverse psychology!

Hrmpf. (Sara)

I went to a birthdayparty yesterday, where everybody had to dress up as a someone from a movie or a fairytale. There were:

– 2 cowgirls

– 2 Captain Jack Sparrows

– 1 Lilo (from Lilo & Stich)

– 1 bee (don’t ask.. )

– 1 of the dark riders from Lord of the Rings

– 1 Lara Croft   ( me )

AND one garden gnome.

There was a who-has-the-best-costume competition,too. The dark rider got the first prize. The garden gnome and I were tied for second place and everybody had to vote again and guess who won? The garden gnome of course.

But hey, no one  can beat a garden gnome. Not even Lara Croft.

TGIF – Good Deed (lia)

Looking out my living room window…  I notice a fellow trying to repair his bicycle tire. He’s attempting to put back the mantel on the front wheel’s frame. With his bare hands. So, I wander outside and ask him if he is in need of some tools. (2 brownie points) Fortunately, I manage to reach him as he is looking through his key chain for the titanium key with the smooth edges he’s hoping miraculouslywill appear there. One plastic tire-feeder tool, a screw driver, and bicycle pump later.. his tire is right as rain. One small gesure of consideration on my part saves him from having to push his bicycle all the way home with a floppy outer mantel (not cool), a puntured inner tire and a broken house key. (another 2 brownie points)
