I've had a lovely if exhausting few days. Thursday after work I was asked to step in as a local pub quiz team was short handed, I joined them & we won! The team were delighted & credited me with being responsible for the win.
I'm not spectacularly clever but whilst a lot of people could answer the TV questions & the sports questions, I often know the weirdest facts. The questions I answered that no one else knew were:-
Who invented the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster?
What is cilantro known as in the UK?
Who, in history, allegedly had a vestigial finger?
What fruit was created by hybridising grapefruit, orange & tangerine?
We won by 4 points & we were the only team to answer those 4 questions.
It was a good evening & it took my mind off my Dr's appointment on Friday morning. I didn't get home 'til after 11:30 on Thursday & was up about 5 in the morning, my L&M was on the early shift last week.
The Dr's appointment was ok, 2 more referrals, one to audiology as I mentioned that I was trouble hearing conversations, he checked my ears, there was no sign of wax or infection, but he said my ear drums look a bit motheaten, that made me laugh.
Friday after work I took DGD Norah to Gym club, then both Norah & Eileen came for a sleepover. Thanks to my L&M playing Hide & Seek & Scary Monsters the girls were hyper & giggly & it was gone 10 before the little buggers fell asleep & then only after I'd gone in, read them the riot act & threatened a withdrawal of treats if they didn't behave. Because we both have child protection training at work & also because of dealing with the DGC's who are LAC, we are very careful when we play, my L&M will never hide with the DGC's, he will hide them in a wardrobe or cupboard & he will hide elsewhere, or he hides & the girls & I look for him.
Eileen woke at 1:30 needing the toilet & and again at 3 as she couldn't find her blankie, both times she went straight back to sleep, unfortunately I had a sneezing fit just after 3 & came downstairs 'til 5:30, at 6:50 she's bouncing up & down at my bedroom door, saying 'I'm awake Nana, can we do cooking now'. I persuaded her to wait 'til we'd taken my L&M & then my DD to work.
We started cooking about 9:30, we made 12 iced cakes with Disney toppers & 12 blueberry muffins. The cooking was accompanied by music as I was stupid enough to by Eileen a whistle & it took way longer to clear up after the cooking than it did to make & ice the cakes. We also did some sewing, we made a mini version of the Frozen dress for a cloth doll that Norah & I made a few weeks ago.
After I dropped the girls home & collected hubby from work I managed to get 3 loads of washing dry, retouched my roots to hide the grey & had a much needed Nana nap.
