Fessing up to embarrassing moments this week.
I'm not sure if it's that I'm in the busiest month of the year to date or that Spring has taken my mind to dizzying heights, but I'm not quite present at the moment.
1. On Monday with Lulu and her little friend Max in the car Lulu asks: "Mum how come Bella's chicken eggs didn't turn into chickens?"
I replied: "Well because if the mummy chook doesn't sit on them long enough and warm them they don't grow into chickens".
(silence for a bit) then 6 y.o. Max pipes up: "No Mrs Denahy, it's because they need a rooster to make chickens".
"yes of course" I replied.
boy did I feel stupid! Luckily the topic was averted and we didn't have to launch into "the talk", Max probably knew more than me anyway!
2. Then yesterday I drove about 10kms without realising I had the "eventual left" blinking away.
3. And lastly, winning the gong of moments, immediately after the "eventual left" scenario I jumped out of the car with a $50 note and my mobile. You never think you'll need that basket when you go in for just one item, but after my tenth and running out of tentacles, I frisked for a pocket to put my mobile in, only to find the elastic of my gym pants (just so you know it was at the back under my shirt) but moments later I was sporting a rectangular poo. I wasn't sure what to do, reach in and risk the humiliation of locals thinking I have worms, or leave it there and pretend there is absolutely nothing wrong with having your mobile dangling at the rear.
Well I would have risked the worm humiliation had I a spare hand, but the fact was I didn't, so a rectangular poo it was until I reached the counter.
....and NO, I'm not pregnant, but I'm sure glad it's warm today, I'm going to finish up my chores and have a much needed cuppa in the sun to comfort my pride.
Have you done anything recently I should know about, that would perhaps make me feel better?
With Love and a bowed head,
