This enabled some quality girl time for me which included going blonde (after 20 years of being a brunette, but I’m in a funk and need a makeover); having a girlfriend over for the weekend where we set about cooking and proceeded to knock off four bottles of champagne, gossiped and watched movies. It was heaven. Even more so, good champagne means no hangover!
So the weekend allowed for some much needed ‘space’ between the kid and I. Lately, it feels as though every time I turn around, he is there. If he isn’t there, then the Squeeze and I are arguing or stressing because the Harridan is attempting to make sure he is there. Generally, this comes under the guise of cleaning six months of scum from the house in Velvet Land as she prepares for it to be rented out.
