This is one of my many titles. Now I could complain at this ever so slightly negative description but alas I must admit the truth of it. My boys learned many, many moons ago that if Mummy touches it, Mummy could break it, so take your chances. Hubby thinks it's a miracle that meals, baking etc appears without injury. That I do not sew my fingers onto fabric or impale myself on a knitting needle. I have suffered the odd slight burn from the oven but, and this is the shocking bit, I still have all my fingers. Hubby cringes when he sees me yielding my cooks knife but after seeing that CRAZY woman on The Restaurant c/o Harry Hill, I see I'm not that bad. My problem in the main is spacial. I have no concept of it! I do have to accept I am clumsy, it is a fact and today again I proved it. .............
( I am also very easily distracted - hence why my boys wandered up to school this morn wearing each others coats. I must clarify, the coats are not identical, similar coloured though. I only noticed when back at home I looked at my eldest ( who's still poorly) and thought something's not right. In retrospect I did think my youngest looked a bit 'drowned ' in the one he was wearing as he was walking off into the school building ! As any mother knows - this was my fault for not placing them on the correct door handles after removing them from the cupboard!!)
.......So my clumsy act for today which I will have to explain to Hubby this evening and he will give me the 'why didn't you know better and leave it for me' look, was to drop the £7.45 fancy low energy daylight bulb before I got it anywhere near the lamp it was to go in. I don't know what happened, it was in my hand then it was crashing on to the floor. As I said, I can accept I am clumsy but cannot and will not have to rely on a man to change a lightbulb, that would be ridiculous. In my defense, and I will be using this tonight in the 'explanation', I did manage to change the other five without mishap. Of this I will stand up and be proud!!!
Fingers crossed it is a one off event and not a theme for today!
