Giant Janky is for older women

I grab a quiet moment, to read a magazine.

Tinkerbell Mushroom sees me.

"That magazine's for older women isn't it Mummy?"

I look at the cover, to see what might give her that impression.

Trinny and Susannah stare back at me.

They would be delighted I chuckle to myself, to know that TM thinks that they are older women.

Meanwhile, she overhears a conversation about a comment made to me by someone a few year's back. Not thinking it the right thing to say, clearly, she pipes up: "That was a bit "ibnoxious" wasn't it Mummy?"

Right now though I have to leave you all, as have been asked by TM and Gymnast to play a game of Giant Janky before bedtime.

Actually, perhaps they should re market it as "Giant Janky"? It's got a certain ring about it compared to Jenga, don't you think?

P.S. Yesterday evening I got home from work, having had a "show" for the parents at my theatre school, so was feeling very tired...............

Was greeted however by a parcel containing an Enya CD (Amarantine) and a book! (The Lollipop Shoes by Joanne Harris). Both sent by a kind friend who reads my blog, as a birthday present. Kind blogging friend wishes to remain anonymous in name. However....

Thank you kind blogging friend. You made my day!

Kids, they don't miss a trick!

Love Enya, so good to listen to when you're relaxing.

enidd said...

enidd thinks anything that sounds as much fun as giant janky should be reserved for older women only. well, not-so-young women, anyway. don't want those teenagers having all the fun.

Enya makes me sleep. I love her music but never hear the 3rd track!

Sally Lomax said...

Beccy - Yes it was a great surprise, and very nice!

Akelamalu and John - Funnily enough, when ED was a baby , she used to go to sleep to Enya. it worked so well that we used its soporific effects to help her settle down each evening!

Enidd - I agree!

There was a Jenga factory (?) in our little town for awhile --- and then I think they moved it to China
