Christmas Planning - Week 5: Bathroom Week

A little late (sorry) but it means that I can bring you my new hashtag a week early (so not all bad than) .... let me introduce #MistletoeMonday.   Organised will return to Sundays again this weekend and Mondays will be full of festive ideas, treats, and exciting reviews to get you in the mood.  After all there is only 87 more sleeps.

Well after blogging about them we headed to Tesco last week and picked up a tub of Heroes for £4.  I wanted to get a tub of the rowntree ones too but they didn't have any :(  I have now been assured by
Tesco they have them in at my local so think I'll pay them a visit on the way home tomorrow and see if they still do.

e-books vs tree-books

Don't get me wrong I LOVE the idea of an e-book.  I've often considered buying an e-reader or tablet and putting the app on it.  I have read the odd few pages of e-books on my android smartphone but it is so small that I could never read a whole book on it... we do read e-books on the internet occasionally (small few page ones),  and of course when you want to read 'that type' of book on a bus load of people an e-book is so much less embarrassing :).

..... and THAT is why I have hung up the #pblogger hat.

Let me lay it on the line.... I am clearly NOT a parent blogger... and not just because my @tots100 stats tell me so.

1) I don't CARE if the kids packed lunch doesn't resemble a letter of the alphabet every day.   They have never complained because the jam from their sandwich (when I'm feeling generous and change from
the normal ham) has strayed onto their slice of cheese.  I've never been screamed at because their carrot sticks were not nice and even.

In fact while I am on the subject of food I don't make their tea like pretty either (ok I did twice).  I cook the food I put it on a plate. To be honest they don't even really care that alphabet potato shapes look like letters and Peppa Pig spaghetti may as well be hoops.

Panda Drinks are back

If you were an 80s / 90s child then you  probably grew up with Panda Pops... yummy fizzy goodness that artifically flavoured cherryade and the orangeade that well come to think of it wasn't really that
orangy and don't get me started on my views about 'cola'.... then the health police came around and they disappeared.  The good news is they are now back... with a soft drink that tastes JUST as good (if not better) then the fizzy pop of our childhood.

Tuneful Tuesday - Birdhouse In Your Soul (They Might Be Giants)

Back in the days of casesste tapes and recording the Pepsi Network Chart Show this found its way onto a mix tape.  I'd forgotton all about it, reheard it today and the memories came flooding back.

It was released in 1989 but most recently returned to the UK Singles Chart in 2010, after its use in a television advert for Clarks Shoes.
