Blogtoberfest: Day 1

Well, I've joined up here and I am going to see if I can do it! Even my non-interesting days have to be made to sound interesting if I want to complete the challenge!!

WARNING: there will be non crafting and child related posts in the next month, it will impossible otherwise.

hence today's exciting development- a clean car!! I remember when I used to get my bucket out, the sponge, Turtle Wax was the only brand you wanted, and everyone ended up soaked from the hose. What? our children will ask us? You used a HOSE to waste water on your car?

Well, I already think like that, and therefore it is a major event when the car gets cleaned- AND vacuumed on the same day. How do I find the time? I didn't. I paid someone while I did the groceries. Simple.

Wonder what it would look like at the end of Blogtoberfest?

Ahh, grocery shopping. exciting, as all these new goodies make their way into my home. A few years ago I was actually surviving on food parcels from charities, so i really do appreciate these moments that I can afford a big haul. On top of a car service. OUCH!


Hmm, is every photo now going to have a crazy pose?

Probably.
See over here for giveaways, too, and watch this space for some.
EDIT: forgot to add a story about my car service. Mine was supposed to have a new timing belt at 60,000kms. It got that today at 100, 000kms. Apparently, I have used up every bit of luck I have, and this is obviously why I never win any giveaways or competitions!

Oh - did you have to remind me how disgusting my car is? I used to eagerly wash and polish my car every weekend, back when it was the love of my life. Now, its lucky to get some lovin every couple of months.

Good on you!

You just make me smile Bec. I love the way that you don't take things for granted.

Oh dear. My car hasn't been cleaned since the ex left.... yours is looking pretty spiffy now!

I work on the principle that all that dirt on our car protects the paintwork!

Clean. Car.

I love that you have whipped the camera out at the checkout!!
