Things I still don't understand the 2012 remix


Hello my lovely readers, a very happy 2012 to you all. Vaguely bemused and confused auntie service is logging on for 2012, in fact this is my 5th Bloggiversary, auntie has been having her say since 2007!!!!

So much has changed in those 5 years, looking back at the photos I see how much my kids have grown and sadly how much I have too :( I used to be a very thin auntie, now I look like I ate the 2007 auntie.

Still, selfless and public spirited to my very core, here I am again, making you feel better about your own life. Ta da - let me present to you - things that still I don't understand...

Why every Hogmanay (December 31st for those of you who are not the chosen ones) I go mental cleaning my house. It has to be spotlessly clean and tidy by midnight so it stays clean and tidy the whole year. It does work, my house is spotlessly clean and tidy every year, on December 31st. The other 364 days it reverts to it's usual slum conditions.

Why there is no real difference between my son and my best friends 5 year old son except height.

How I was expected to keep a straight face when the lovely 5 year old explained how you tell boy dogs from girl dogs - to whit "they have a chubby bit down below, near the back that swing when they walk"

Why BBD put a dark brown colour in her gorgeous titian hair bacause she was called ginger then decided to dye her hair RED, a RED that could be seen from space, not a RED found in any place other than her hair and a child's paintbox.

How all I ever write about are my children and am I ever thought of as a mummy blogger? am I feck. No one ever sends me lovely free stuff to write about, all together now, poor poor auntie

Thanking you all most kindly for reading, for me it's been a great 5 years, I wonder if I'll be here for another 5? Who knows? please feel free to have some cake, it's most yummy and calorie free, what more could you ask for?

I *could* say that I knew what Hogmanay meant (and be one of the chosen ones) but I'll admit, I googled it first.....

A very happy 2012 to you and yours...and isn't it funny how those darn kids keep sneaking into our blogs?!

Happy new year! 31st December is the day I don't clean knowing that it will be trashed by the end of the party. I'll extend your question why is there no difference between the 5 year old, your son and my husband except height and waist measurement.

I happen to know that cake is delicious. Or I would do if your offspring hadn't eaten it. Happy fifth x

Have your children got their gadgets back or are they still in the boot of the car? ;-)
Happy New Year - here's to more blogging and some seriously good PR opportunities for you. Just put the relevant words in your posts - Moet, Tiffanys, Thorntons - and see what happens.

Hello,

I'm a New Media specialist working for an advertising agency based in London. We are working with a new start up business, www.bakerdays.com who send personalised cakes for any occasion through your letter box. I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a review of one of their cakes.
Let me know if this is something you would be interested in and I can sort out getting the cake to you - just reply with the style of cake you would like and your UK postal address, and if there is any requirements such as a specific message or gluten free etc.

Many Thanks,
Biddy
