Extreme lazyness

I've been a bit quiet of late mainly because I am once again in the UK getting a bit of extra dosh and I felt a bit sulky about it to be honest but I've got over myself now. It's lucky that I can do it and that I have a brother who will pick me up at the airport and put me up in his spare room for the price of a couple of bars of French chocolate with raspberry bits in.

TS is at home looking after the gang, working and doing DIY on our house in my absence. I'm in two minds on this one. Half glad that I don't have to do it and half wanting to stick my oar in because I just can't bear not to be in charge. Actually I'm at least seven eighths glad that I don't have to do it and I can offer reams of advice and guidance by e-mail anyway.

To make sure I can play my part properly on my return I have been studying Extreme Makeover. Honestly that's the only reason. I don't really want to spend hours vegging out in front of the telly eating Martin's ice cream and crying buckets over all those tales of hardship while TS does all the work. I just want to do my bit. So whatever the house looks like I will jump up and down, scream and cry and shout Oh My God.

Come to think of it that will be fine either way won't it?

Just need to look up the French for bus driver move that bus and I'm sorted

Feeling for you Breezy - I can't stand not being in charge either. I do occassionially bow to greater knowledge - but only a small bow.

Get back home soon - okay?

I agree I would definitely have wanted the stay at home and be in charge duty - my better half likes to think he is a "perfectionist" which I just translate as painstakingly slow!!! He needs me there as cheerleader :) Hope you makes lot of dosh and get home soon.

How lucky are those people on extreme makeover. Admittedly they usually have a very sad story, but the houses they build are amazing...if sometimes lacking in taste.

I think a follow up series would be excellent - how is the redneck family coping with the $8,000 grill? ha ha.....I bet they sold it!

Aims it's being convinced about the greater knowledge that's my problem

SITH I am with you all the way on that one between us I feel we manage to hit the balance between doing it right & doing it quick

TBNIL It's funny I was just thinking that this weekend it would be interesting to see if all this was truly life changing for people. The sensible bit of me would rather see 20 families rehoused decently than one in complete over the top luxury but at least one family gets an amazing time and it does draw attention to just how far under the under class is

At least being forced back to Blighty to earn some pennies means you appreciate your real life when you get back to it.

Besides, I'm sure TS will do a sterling job to make you proud. He wouldn't dare do otherwise!

Breezy said...

Jen of course he'll do a fab job but I'm not very good at not knowing what's going on

Try this, it should do the trick

Hê - bouge ta saloperie d'autobus espèce de connard! Va-z-y! Degage!

Extreme Makeover, 60 minutes makeover, Homes under the Hammer - all considered to be under the label "Research". So you're not not sitting watching - you're doing Research.

Breezy said...

Stew where you been? You were ever so quiet after the Tour de France for ever so long. Thank you for the phrase it would pay to be careful how I use it do you think?

FFS Nice one you are quite right it's research I am NEVER idle those cogs they just keep turning

MMORPG Games are alluring for everybody, especially for men and boys. Play World of Warcraft, but not have WoW Gold, it’s just a headache. Because World of Warcraft Gold is a needed. At the same time, WoW Power Leveling is also important, It could be got from Cheap WoW Gold. There is a interesting fact. Many WoW players like wear jordan shoes or basketball shoes , and with the tiffany jewelry. It’s just the interest ing thing in the game world.
