Well I have rather slim pickings to choose from when it comes to sharing pictures with you this week as a couple of weeks ago I had quite a mishap!
I had charged out of work as quickly as possible and headed up the M40 to get to my son’s school where he was playing his clarinet in a recital. Unusually for that time of day, I had a clear run and so arrived with five minutes to spare!
Having not visited the bathroom in a while due to my haste, I dashed to the loo. I heard a clatter as I sat down and thought perhaps the loo seat had re-adjusted itself. As I turned to flush, I saw my phone sitting like a sunken ship feeling sorry for itself on the sea bed. Gutted! I totally forgot it was in my back pocket!
I hesitated… then with no other options at hand, fished it out – no gloves to hand and no husband to call! (not that I would have, after all, we’re still newlyweds!!)
So, after washing my hands I arrived in the hall and sat next to my said man who had saved me a seat and some refreshments. I kissed him and then handed him my dripping phone so that I could eat cake 🙂 We sat trying to stifle our giggles through the recital… and of course Myles played beautifully!
Two weeks later, having bathed in rice, in a lock n’ lock in the airing cupboard, it came back to life but was struggling to make any sense. Fortunately my sister had just upgraded her phone and so gave me her old one which was exactly the same so I’m once again up and running. Although I have to say, it’s been a great excuse to relive the days when you couldn’t be contactable 24/7!
This is why I never take my phone on holiday – life gets to slow down when we are phoneless and I for one quite like that. I didn’t however much like putting my hand into my own pee!
So, to make up for the lack of pictures, let’s have a competition… I have a five-piece Laura Geller Baked Confections make-up collection (see photo above) to give away! Its contains a Spackle Primer, the top-rated Balance-n-Brighten Foundation, a blush, an eyeshadow trio, liquid lipstick and brushes. Would you like to win it??
