The Snowman

I took C up to London yesterday to see the stage version of Raymond Briggs The Snowman. There is hardly any talking in the show so C quite enjoyed it ( that's why i chose it, also he has watched the video about 1000 times or more!). The average age of the audience was about 4 so their noise drowned Cs noises out!

We then did one of our usual routes taking in the ice rink at Somerset house. C being a people watcher just loves watching people skate or rather try to.

I took a photo on my phone of the Christmas tree there, if your eye sight is really good you can just about see us in the reflection!!

Then on to Trafalgar square with a lunch stop at McDonald's. I'm not a fan of McDs, but C hasn't been eating much this hols and i can guarantee he will eat their fries! We also went to the loo there, they still haven't replaced the tiles C smashed with his head from last time we were there! Thankfully no repeat performance this time!

As you can see Trafalgar Square was getting ready for New Years eve, with big screens and fencing off the water from revelers!

Am not looking forward to tonight as C finds the noise of fireworks really distressing and there is not a lot i can do about it.

We then walked down past number 10 and on to Big Ben. It was packed. I prefer London in the winter as its usually quiet and easier to walk in straight lines for C! The sun was out bringing the crowds, so I thought we would call it a day and go home!

Casdok and C wish you all a happy, healthy, and safe New Year!

Lighter side to weight loss!

With Jan 1st fast approaching most of us think about loosing some weight. My brother is getting married in Feb, and you know what us girlies are like!

I’ve stuck these quotes on my fridge to remind me!!

"With your diet, don't dawdle -- if you don't want to waddle!"

"Bigger snacks means bigger slacks"

"It's better to laugh or to giggle, than to eat more and jiggle!"

"You gotta move it to lose it... "

"You gotta eat right for the fat to take flight"

"Eat, Shrink, and be Merry!"

"According to the book, it takes 3500 fewer calories to lose a pound of fat, but I don't think my fat can read"

"Eat wise, drop a size."

"Give up that fat - watch your belly go flat."

AOQILI is a unique weight loss soap. I’ve heard it all now!

Except maybe this Squid Ink Flavoured Ice Cream - that’s enough to put you off!

Or this
Have you any tips??

Sex sells (apparently!)

Don't be fooled by advertising if out sales shopping.
Advertising and sex have been tied together since advertising became a big business. The use of sexually suggestive images to sell just about everything really emphasizes the point that sex is a merchandiser's best friend.

Can you guess what these ads are for??

Talking of sex..

I can work out your age!

It takes less than a minute . Work this out as you read .. Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out! This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun(!!) Which means it is!

1. First of all, pick the number of times a day that you would like to have sex (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757 .... If you haven't, add 1756.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have sex each day).

The next two numbers are your age!!

This will only work for the year 2007.

Oh and the answers for the ads are; Toilet paper. Hoover. Coffee. Volvo. Divorce attorney and PlayStation 2.

The next one is gross!

The things people think of!

Londons Winter Wonderland

C and i had a really lovely day out in London's Hyde Park yesterday. This is one of our usual routes (we have to stick to the same ones).

I like our Hyde Park route as even though we always go the same way there is always something different to see.

And yesterday was no exception, they had made a Winter Wonderland for kids.

C was really excited and didn't know which way to look or how high to jump!! (Theres a short clip on our You tube)I think it was because all the kids were tied down!

Or penned in!

We had a well deserved lunch in the same pub we always go to, and C always eats the same thing.

C seems to be doing a good impression of reading the menu, but hes actually studying a picture of drinks!!

We then went back and looked at it all again!

C had such a super time people feet watching, his smile on the way back said it all. So whilst he cleaned the train windows with his tongue i was inspired to write this.

Some morn for the child
They thought they lost,
But I wouldn’t change
My miracle son for any cost.

His smiles are priceless
His touch I cant describe,
The love I feel for him
Makes me well up inside.

His ear piercing shrieks
Are a joy to hear,
When he looks deep in my eyes
I feel our souls so near.

When you truly accept
For who they are,
The good times
Out weigh the hard by far.

I am not able to have many friends
The public look down their nose.
The gifts C has brought me
Make up for all of those.

The miracle of child birth
Still amazes me.
I made such a beautiful son
He’s perfect - my C

Worst Christmas Presents

Apparently these are the worst presents you can give someone this Christmas!

McDonald's Gift Certificates
DVDs from the bargain bin
Air freshener
A plain ol' mouse, mousepad, or keyboard
Christmas tree ornaments
Anything edible
A magazine subscription
The Magic 8-Ball
Any “for Dummies” book
Blank VHS Tapes

My present was a windscreen wiper!! (Don't ask, and just the one!) But saying that it is one of my most memorable presents!

What was yours?

My favorite present was from C (hes so clever!) his finger print on a necklace. It feels as though i have a part of him with me where ever i go.

What do you collect?

What do you collect?
Apparently what you collect has a meaning.

Cars; This is a projection of external power. Ensuring you have a way to get ahead.
Books; A desire for knowledge and personal growth.
Masks; Not being true to yourself.
Miniatures; Wanting to feel in control. Attempting to reduce problems.
Souvenirs; Holding on to your experiences.
Stamps; You want to keep the world in an orderly fashion. A desire to make a good impression.

Etc. You get the drift!

I collect sparkly things for C (used to be chopsticks!) wonder what that means.
C seems to like to collect diagnoses! His latest one is Tourettes which he is being seen about in a couple of weeks.
And for myself I collect books and crystals.
What do you like to collect?!

C was happy doing his own thing (as you can see he is now wearing a helmet full time, i don't like it but it is functional and temporary till we can get one fitted for him) in our local shopping centre, watching the passing feet. My friend and i were having coffee, chatting whilst keeping a close eye on him.

When it was time to leave I bent down to pick up my bag, and there on the floor by my feet - was this!

In all the places in all the world.............

Has anything like this happened to you???
