Sadly no Superman for me to cuddle up to so I made do with this!
(I did have my Superman Converse on though:-)
Popped over the border today with the dog & kids in tow – so they could play on the beach & have ice cream of course…
I picked up these rather awesome & ‘super’ cool Converse while we were there. I’ve never owed a pair of Converse before & I have to say I’m impressed, my pigs glided into them & were very comfy in there when I tried them on – they even have laces with little Superman signs on!
I might have to watch Batman Vs Superman now…
06.15 – YAY! Another rested sleep, waking up to sunshine & no choir practice today.
08.15 – A slightly chilly but beautiful walk in the park with some of the usual suspects.
09.15 – Driving home & the flat tire light comes on! Our minivan is already waaaay overdue for it’s service & we need them to also change over the winter tires, but a flat in a winter tire is an expensive add-on – not happy.
09.30 – Back at base I inform hubby of the good news. I have some errands to run that are not close to home & I wasn’t sure I would get everything in my Mini. Apparently I should trust my own words & never underestimate a Mini – especially a soft top because you can pack even more into that bad boy!
10.00 – Phone call from teacher mum, her son is off school with the dreaded virus so won’t be going to hockey. I feel terrible that I have passed it onto to the poor wee guy. This also changes our child swapping plan so I call hubby, leave a message, text him, call again – still no answer.
12.30 – It would appear that you can fit 8 cases of wine, 9 plants, 8 window boxes & me in a Cooper S with room to spare. I call hubby again – no answer…
13.30 – Bar chords practice is going very badly, I hope my teacher will be patient with me on Thursday, especially after I tell him that I have spent most the past week on my deathbed.
14.20 – Finally speak to hubby who has only just received my text – GRRRR! & none of my calls – double GRRRR! We rearrange our plan & now I’m late for a meeting…
14.35 – The mum I’m meeting to finalize our staff appreciation breakfast arrangements for Friday is also late!
14.50 – We spend 5 minutes arranging the final details & 15 minutes of gossiping!!
15.10 – Normal civilized pick up – or so I thought. Elder child already knew he wasn’t being picked up by teacher mum so he was waiting for me, ready to pounce & request food to feed Boris (that is what we have now named his tapeworm!). Younger child hasn’t eaten all of his so I just hand elder child the food bag & tell him to vacuum up whatever he wants from there. Younger child then gets the third degree on the way home for not eating his lunch – AGAIN!!
16.15 – The same routine before field hockey applied but was just easier with just one child. Hubby arrives home & I leave to pick up elder child from Track & Field practice.
16.40 – Elder child informs me on the way home that the track meet tomorrow does not have transport to the field – I have to take him & his first event is at 9am. He is supposed to be there 45 minutes before… I am officially Wonder Woman as I will need to be in 2 places at once! I completely lose it in the car because this is the first that this has been mentioned – also my fault for not reading the email in full too but that’s a separate rant altogether.
17.00 – I have been given half an hours grace because he discovers that his first event is not until 9.30. We make an agreement that from now on he needs to check with us before signing up for these events – especially if there is no transport… yeah right, & I will bump into Henry Cavill tomorrow while looking fabulous after having my hair done!
18.00 – Friends again we play our guitars together…
19.00 – Now that I’m feeling much better I really need a glass of wine!
Yes, I will admit it to the world that I have been a dedicated Henry Cavill fan for over a decade now. I can still remember the first episode of ‘The Tudors’ he appeared in (as I’ve watched it many times, the sad individual that I am), it had me completely hooked on the man you now all now know as ‘Superman’. I was there for the opening of ‘Man of Steel’, & today I subjected my whole family to my sad obsession & took them to see ‘Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice’. My husband, god bless him, has even been known to feed my habit by taking me to see ‘The Man From Uncle’ on my birthday last year, even though we were both jetlagged having just arrived back from France the night before – now that’s love!
Today did not disappoint, it was just as complicated & spectacular as you would expect, & after my husband walked through the cinema & sat watching ‘The Force Awakens’ in full Yoda costume, my younger son & I totally geeked out too by wearing appropriate attire. He totally owned the miniature version of Henry’s costume, cape & all, while I proudly wore my MOS t-shirt. Had the temperature been in double figures I might have stepped out in my fabulous Wonder Woman costume, but sadly it was still a little chilly for me. We had the full on heart stopping, Lycra clad IMAX experience; I swear I could almost touch him… now there’s a thought.
Anyway if I don’t stop now I will continue to bore you all even more with my middle age crush because if the truth be known I am probably Mr. C’s No.1 fan, in fact there’s no probably about it!!
