The little PINK comforts of life

How do I put it without sounding too insane. I still love pink, the brighter and louder - the better.

Today we went shopping for bedding and I walked out with chocolate and pink pillows for the living room... a creamy fitted sheet and pillows in my favourite pink. I know most men would feel intimidated by so much pink, but my little Leprechaun can handle it :)

This week was kind of rough. Lots of work and things going on right now. From people's birthdays to my mom visiting.

I definitely need to grab a holiday away from home (poor Mr Genie). Definitely somewhere by the coast, no tv, no internet, no nothing. I can dream, can't I?

Kitten love

Mr Genie has been a big part of my life for the past 9.something years and last weekend he got into a little cat fight. My Leprechaun was the first to be downstairs... even though I was the first to get under 2 cars to fish my unhappy kitty out.

Since Saturday, I'm proud to say, Mr Genie is now again my personal bodyguard. When I wake up, he is on the bed. When I get home, he is on my parking space.

... I just have to train the Leprechaun to cook during the week :)

Emergency money for dates

Today I realised why I always keep money in my cellphone pouch...

I first started putting a note into my cell's pouch way back when I first started clubbing. This continued when I started seriously dating... and it stuck.

Why keep money aside

I call it my emergency money. I may part with my handbag involuntarily, but my cellphone... aikona. Plus, what if you needed to catch a taxi or phone a friend after a bad date where you lost your handbag...

Dating was a breeze compared to organizing a wedding. Suppliers are slow and load prices... I'm just about ready to jump in my car and drive 1 000km to get stuff sorted.
