I have a confession to make... I'm a thief.
Yes I am sorry to everyone who believed in me , but there you go, a THIEF!
It's not my fault really. Sometimes there is just so much going on, and the kids are yelling and I get distracted, and before you know it, there I am in Aldi, nicking off with some poor, unsuspecting persons trolley.
Life in the Young household has been crazy, challenging, overwhelming and just plain out-of-control. I have been sitting in a bit of a puddle lately, then today, I went to the supermarket, with a friend who has no car. I only needed one thing, she needed lots, so we got a trolley and away we went, she pushing her trolley and me meandering behind.
Perhaps I haven't set the scene well enough as I also had Sarah (5yrs) with me, dressed in black and pink mini-dress, topped with ugg boots, a fairy tutu, a tiara and plastic handcuffs. LOLOLOLOL
So somewhere between aisle 3 and 4 I found myself pushing a trolley. I took it past the frozen goods section, had a wander through dairy and found myself face to face with my friend. WHO WAS ALSO PUSHING A TROLLEY !!!
We chatted a bit about the grapes and slowly... E..V..E..R.. so slowly it dawned on me that if she had the trolley, I should not be holding on to handlebars.
At this point it all went down hill (I do realise we were only on a slight rise to begin with) as I snorted with giggles and said "OMG I think I've stolen someones trolley" I swear, friend and I were standing there trying not to pee our pants, when the nicest backpackers one row over started to look a little... well.....puzzled ...!
In between snorts of laughter and very red cheeks I call out "Is this your trolley" I think they thought I was a bit do-lally as they watched me remove my yogurt from their trolley and stand doubled over with giggles, and beetroot red cheeks behind my now catatonic friend.
Such a funny and giggly time has definitely put a bit off a spring in my step, after all, if I can make a total idiot of myself in the supermarket, anything else thrown my way is just FLOSS!
Home I came and for some weird reason I feel invigorated ( it could be the extra oxygen to the brain?) I have been on the phone to my stitching friend extraordinaire and we have been cooking up some very special projects for 2010.
Stay tuned people... the best is yet to be.....
