silenceisgolden

You little genius.  We like the way you think.  Sending the kids off to the latest Hoyts movie with their cousin was one smooth move, and a small price to pay for an evening of golden silence.

Rare nights like this are not – we repeat NOT – for cleaning the oven.

They’re for indulging in decadent Donovans Dark Chocolate Peppermints, and making yourself a cup of Harney & Sons holiday tea.  They’re for putting your feet up and swooning over McSteamy and McDreamy on your Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 DVD, or catching up on series 5 of Justified.  And this would be the perfect time to test out your new By Nature Cleanser and Rosehip Oil, before heading to bed with The Shadow Tracer.  (Best you put the empty Donovan’s pouch at the bottom of the rubbish.  That’s nobody’s business but yours).

Thanks for entering, this competition is now closed.

    I started a story the other day with “OMG do they do that on Grey’s….” Got a few blank stares but I was in full flight before anyone could stop me. It was a good story too. Unlike my generosity with the awesome Grey’s story, I don’t think I would share this prize. I’d take the Donovans to the movies and wind down with a cuppa when I got home.

    Silence is golden but not always! Usually silence during the day from my toddler, means he’s doing something naughty like emptying a lite bottle of dish washing liquid down the toilet, pulling out the new carrot seedlings (freshly planted of course), getting into Mummy’s makeup and deciding that waterproof mascara goes all over his face……………………..
