Very sunny, lovely Spring day here but quite cold! I was caught out bigtime this morning by DD3 Megan who some of you will know is in New Zealand 'travelling' at the moment. I checked my emails first thing and saw an email from her saying ...
"Hello, just to let you both know, I may have accidently had a small accident today in which I tripped stepping off the bus and broke my wrist.
Everything's fine its just a tad painful...I went to the hospital and I've spoken to the insurance people so everything is more or less sorted, just got to fill in some papaer work and stuff like that. I'm so annoyed because it means that I can't continue on at the moment, so I'm going to stay in Auckland for a couple more days until I've sorted everything out and then start up again.
E-mailing you because I know it's late there so don't want to worry you and have you ring me up when its night time.
No need to worry, I'm good, just a loss of dignity is all. ....." etc etc...
....as you can imagine I was in a right state and straight on the phone to her, nearly in tears, asking if she was ok... what did they give her for the pain... was she in plaster or just bandaged... did she need any more help with the insurance people and all that sort of stuff. She said I could help with one of the forms she was filling in and could I just check the date as she knew she was 12 hours ahead and wasn't sure what date to put on the insurance form.. I walked into the kitchen to look at the calendar and said it's April the.... ARGHHHHH!!!!!!
Yup!! I was well and truly had by my 19 year old. (She was 19 last week all on her own in San Diego!)
About to write her an email and trying to think of a way to get my own back....

Evening Neil was at the football and the girls were at his mums So I had a very peaceful day to myself. Did get caught out with 1 April Fools - was on the boots Facebook page............... Boots has developed a brand-new moisturiser – that AGES you 20 years. Named “Recline & Unwind”, the skin cream is scientifically proven to enhance the appearance of fine-lines and wrinkles. It’s aimed at those ladies who have always dreamed of handsome young gentlemen giving up their seat on the bus and offering to carry their shopping, but have yet to encounter such a phenomenon. Professor A. Prilfool who pioneered the technology says it’s a first in beauty science. “We always assume women are yearning to recapture a youthful look but, in fact, our studies showed this is far from the case,” says the Prof, 14. “Instead of the radiant skin of a 20-something, it was the slightly more weathered look that topped our recent customer poll.” The cream will go on sale today. Customers are expected to form an orderly queue. Had to read it a few times to make sure Kathryn I would've worried sick with an email like that - although have to applaud Megan cos that was a good April Fools Well have a good night everyone - am all by myself again as Neil upstairs working again - been online all this weekend and last plus very late nights for the 2 weeks. Oh well I get the remote xxx
