Krispy Kreme

Very busy day for your auntie Gwen today.

Beautiful baby daughter has gone to Wales on a " please don't lose, maim or kill my small child activity holiday " type school trip. As some of you may know I don't function well without my full complement of offspring. This particular trip has been done by both the eldest beautiful daughter and the beautiful son so I am slightly less of a basket case than I was on previous occasions as they both returned home with the same number of limbs they left with. They do a ferocious ammount of activities including rock climbing, abseiling, caving, canoeing, kayaking, archery and zip wire. So, as you can see it's just the thing a teacher would want to take 62 ten year olds to do ! ! She'll be back on Sunday, so just 4 sleeps till she comes home.

I was again in regional headquarters in Birmingham today on another course all to do with the fascinating topic of RaRPA, so if you're really an insomniac and need help, email and I'll send you my notes. Great craic with some of the other tutors though and we had a little peek in the shops. In Selfridges there was a massive queue at the krispy kreme counter. My colleagues did not believe I was a krispy kreme virgin and insisted that must change. I bought 1 fancy choc donut each for the EBD and TBS and I had a maple glazed one for me. I was truly shocked at the prices of them but didn't say anything because I don't want to perpetuate the untrue myth of Scottish people being mean. So very casually I smiled serenly at the wee boy behind the counter as I handed over .........

£3.90,

yes that's right £ 3.90 it costs me and I resisted the urge to scream " for 3 feckin donuts "
There were people there buying them by the dozen . Whit's that aw aboot ( TM Edge ), no seriously I am no stranger to waste your money shopping but boxes of donuts costing near enough £15 , come on .

So tonight it will be nice grown up food for tea, wine is cab Sauv, fancy donuts for afters and The Apprentice followed by Desperate Housewives on the telly. I'll do my lesson plans tomorrow and I'll let you know if we thought the do nuts were worth it.

You should keep away from Birmingham - if it's not Prada shoes it's ridiculously expensive doughnuts! Not good for you or your bank balance.
