Dear cough and cold – Ok, five days is enough – off you go now, and trouble someone else. Losing your voice when you are a teacher makes doing your job quite difficult, but thankfully it is on its way back again.
Dear Kleenex – You must just love this time of year when your sales rocket due to all the people with sniffles, coughs and colds. I have certainly been doing my bit to keep you in business this week!
Dear winter coat – I think I brought you out of the cupboard prematurely. At the beginning of this week it was very chilly, with ice on the car in the mornings, so I decided that my warmest winter coat was necessary. I got you out and now the temperature has gone up a few degrees! I shouldn’t complain though because it meant I didn’t have to scrape the car yesterday, or the day before.
Dear Christmas preparations – Just two more days and I can hang up the Advent calendar and get all my Christmas mugs, tea towels and candles out. Hooray!
Dear childhood sweets – Following a discussion on another blog, Black Jacks, Fruit Salads and Flying Saucers are now lodged firmly in my mind and are kicking up a bit of a fuss when asked to leave. Luckily I am visiting a nearby town today where they have an old fashioned sweetie shop, so I might be able to indulge in a few happy childhood memories.
This is what Fruit Salads and Black Jacks look like now –
I managed to find a picture of the wrapper I remember from way back in the ‘olden days’.
Happy Friday everyone!
