Why waste time when you can just 'Wash & Go'?

Yep, seems like my head is filled with lines from random shampoo adverts. However, you'll all be please to know, I'm sure, that today, thanks to my blog post yesterday, my Mum reminded me that I needed to buy some more shampoo, and I have duly done so.*

It would also appear that I'm either calmer in general about Thursday, or I'm just ignoring it. Either way, I can tell I'm happy because I'm back to spontaneously bursting into song at the slightest provocation. This might be considered slightly embarrassing when I start singing 'You know you make me wanna SHOUT' whilst picking up stain remover spray in Salisbury's. (Well, it is called Shout, so what d'you expect me to do?). Luckily, I don't embarrass myself too easily, and my mum is pretty used to me (Well she ought to be after knowing me for 26 years, right?)

I love days like today. Those autumn days where the sun is shining and the leaves on the trees are changing colour. Days where you go out and see some people dressed up in jumpers and winter coats, and others wearing just a T-shirt (well not just a t-shirt, but you know what I mean!). It's days like today that remind me I'm British. That sometimes you just can't help but talk about the weather. I mean, just look at the window all you Londoners, isn't it beautiful out there today? And tomorrow will most probably be entirely different. Because that's the way the weather goes around here.

I have an idea brewing for a way to enjoy this time of year in a slightly crazy, but enjoyable way, but I'll let you know what it is once it's more fully developed.

* Actually, it appears I haven't bought shampoo, because I picked up conditioner instead. Oh well. Guess that means I'll have to rack my brains for another line from an old shampoo advert for when I actually do buy some.

i have come home with conditioner instead of shampoo, too. blargh! they should make the writing bigger.
today in boston it looks like london usually does (so i'm jealous of your beautiful), and in general the saying goes that in new england, if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes.

Sounds like you have the same type of weather we do here in colorado! We always say, if you don't like the weather right now, wait a couple of hours. It's always sure to surprise. Hope you get your shampoo. Conditioner doesn't wash well. :)

I agree! I love crisp fall days - especially the first few when you see the full range of dressers, from the over-reactors who layer on all their winter gear to the self-deny-ers who insist on shivering around in shorts and a t-shirt! :)

You haven't used
