I’ve had a rather bizarre day fuelled mainly by caffeine, sugar, and local anaesthetic – please excuse the rambling!
I heard on the radio that US President-elect Barack Obama visited the White House for talks with incumbent George W. Bush. Mr Obama and his wife Michelle will also get a tour of the building which will be their home from 20 January.
I now have a rather surreal scenario in my head, of the Bushes showing the Obamas around; pointing out the door that’s a bit stiff (don’t worry – it’s always been that way!), explaining which day you put the rubbish out on, and desperately hoping no-one notices all the little bits they’ve repainted and touched up! That's how it's been with every house hand-over we've ever done!
Phoebe: “Look Mummy! I made an alien hat – I’m going to be a garlic!”
Mummy: “Do you mean dalek?”
Phoebe: “Noooo. Don’t be silly!”
This is Captain Black. He is very nice. I had a bad day today so he is putting the children to bed. I am VERY lucky. Let's hear it for Husband Appreciation Day!
