So the other day I had a post ready. And then Blogger ate it up, photos and all, burped and sighed happily to itself, leaving me tempted to whack the computer lightly with a brick. Since then I have been lying on my couch all melodramatic artist-like, now and again announcing that I can't work under such conditions. Until Boys 1 and 2 asked me to move, as they wanted to sit on the couch to watch their current favourite TV show, "60 Deadly Animals Wot Will Bite Your Head Or Other Important Bits Off" and eat crisps.

But here I am again, defiantly trying to post.....bad idea, now I can't get the photos to load...but as you will have already observed, I have helpfully included in CAPITALS a description of the visuals you are missing.
Humph! It's pouring with rain here again and poor old Boy 1 has gone off with the school to do some sort of outdoor organic eco build your own den team building day - complete with waste free lunch - a bit of a challenge - I guess we were supposed to do brown rice wrapped in cabbage leaves but we've gone with a ham sandwich in Tupperware..
PIC 3 BOY 1'S WASTE FREE LUNCH - ONE APPLE, ONE HAM SANDWICH AND 2 CHOC CHIP COOKIES EACH IN INDIVIDUAL TUPPERWARE BOXES BUT NO WALKERS CRISPS WHICH IS A SHAME AS WALKERS WORCESTER SAUCE FLAVOUR WOULD HAVE REALLY JOLLIED UP THE LUNCH
So now I'm off to watch The Big Easy ( a young Dennis Quaid, cute) which always cheers me up.**
What do you all do when things don't go your way?
* This post was not sponsored by Walkers Crisps but if there is any chance of a year's free supply of crisps..
**Which reminds me, the other day Mr B and I watched "Sex, Love and Other Drugs" and may I just say what a very fine actor Mr Gyllenhal's upper torso is (also his left buttock is quite talented too..)
