No offense

I rang my daughter yesterday. The eldest one who allegedly has left home. There was no reply. A few minutes later I receive a text message

EBD - I'm in a seminar, what's wrong? x

ag - sweetie I love you and think you're great and all but if there was something wrong, would you really be the best person to ring? xxxxx

EBD - point taken, I'll be home at 2, if you're in we'll go get coffee and cake, our eyebrows waxed and go to waste your money type shops, I got paid xx

It's lovely when you know each other so well.

Mrs W - just checking she had keys as I was going out :)

Lottie - for both the daughters shopping is an extreme sport, not for the faint hearted

Libs - nothing like a daughter unless it's a son :) we're fond of them too

Trish - we have a ferocious instinct for the waste your money type shops, never found one we didn't like :)

We are lucky to have both wonderful daughters and sons. My son was out helping me in the garden today and we had a good old natter together, bless him he is 21....my daughter decided youtube funnies were a better option x Sandi

Gigi said...

Now that sounds like my kind of afternoon! Man-Child isn't too keen for those kinds of outings.

EBD is clearly another wonderful teenager, hope you had a lovely time x

Curry Queen said...

I have a very similar relationship with TD and I give thanks for it every day! We are lucky!

If only I could persuade my kids to spend ther money on me. They've only just (reluctantly) conceded that they actually get paid for their jobs - they gave me the impression they worked for nothing!

Suzanne Jones said...

Alienne said...

That's nice; I'd probably get 'what are you talking about?' back. But they'd still come shopping and waste my money!

Andy said...

Hmmmmm.... Like this one perhaps?

Sandi - oh my son disappears at the mere mention of work, thats the only way I can get him to leave me alone, the "can you do me a favour..." and he's off! xx

Gigi - yeah I don't do them with my man child either

LFBS - oh we do like a potter around, very therapeutic xx

CQ - yep I tell myself that when they are driving me insane

Steve - you mean they don't work for free??? heavens forfend xx

Taz - sometimes :) x

SJ - yep it was, I love these, makes a change for the arguments I get from her other siblings :)

Aleinee - my daughters definition of Mummy is mate with money

Andy - absolutely spot on, lots of nice lady things in shops, none of them needed

Kitty said...

EBD is absolutely charming, AuntieGwen. She obviously takes after her Mum. xxx

So what kind of cake did you get? I want details! You know, so I can share in virtual yummies, being on this regime and all. :)

I once asked for an eyebrow wax, the Esthetician squinted at my face and said, "Why?" (It was a Esthetician Training program in Cheshire attached to the College where I worked.) I just asked her to humour me, then got an eyebrow colour, as well. So for a few weeks, I had visible eyebrows! :D

Hugs and quiches from Kitty xx

Oooooh, so there is an upside after all the nappies, the shouting, the near nervous break down, etc... That's at least something to keep me going till nbr 3 is reaching that age (long way to go, still in nappies!).

Of course, love nbr 1 and 2 to bits but realistic about expectations of cake and eyebrows moment. Pretty sure boys don't enjoy eyebrows waxing...
