Thing One: When you're just about to go out for dinner with your beau, and the babysitter says: 'I hope no one needs to go to hospital, I've already drunk too much.' Already? You mean you're going to be drinking more while you're caring for our children??
Thing Two: In the shower with the Doctor: 'Mum, you're getting chubs.' Another boost for self-esteem. Go me (straight to Weight Watchers that is).
And here's a beautiful rose from our garden. It's got thorns too.
