Monday Poll – 16th August 2010

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 16 - 2010

As ever, and due to timezone differences… I’m shamelessly stealing last week’s poll from the lovely Karen!

1. Mood:

Tired… it’s 1.36am and Leila is unsettled.  I’ve been in to her 3 times in the last 20 minutes.  We may be in for a long night.

2. Do you ever fall asleep on public transportation?

No, but I dearly wish I could!  Ok, maybe not on the bus or tube, but the 1.5hr train ride into London (and back) always drags.  I’d love to be able to sleep through it.  I’m such a paranoid Annie though… I’d be terrified someone would rifle through my handbag whilst I was away with the fairies.  Or worse, a fellow passenger might twitpic a photo of me with my mouth wide open… dribbling.

3. If you could wave a magic wand and instantly change one thing about your hair this morning, what would it be?

I’d stop my scalp from being so sore and flakey.  I’m working on a solution… time to go SLS free perhaps?

4. Fragrance?

Estee Lauder – Beautiful

5. One of your favorite childhood toys?

The family’s ZX Spectrum was very well used, but I was a touch too young to fully appreciate it.  So I’d have to say the Sega Megadrive that I bought secondhand out of the local paper and took to France every year for the long summer holidays.  It kept me and my friends well occupied on rainy days.  Ahhh, now I wanna game of Desert Strike!

6. Last thing that made you really, REALLY happy?

Going geocaching in the woods with Leila yesterday.  She got out of the pushchair and was able to properly explore a new environment for the first time under her own steam.  She was all brave and kept getting ahead of herself.  Watching how excited she got when she saw her Daddy coming back from the car damn near MELTED me.

7. Do you wear a watch?

No, never.  I’m the annoying one that always asks for the time.

8. I’m loving…

Um, honestly?  Iceland ready meals.  Oh god – what an admission.  I know they’re unhealthy, but I can’t believe how much free time I’m clawing back not preparing stuff from scratch!  I’m also loving my new storage from Wilkinsons (thanks Yinka!)

9. Outfit:

So dull you really wouldn’t be interested.

10. Weekly goals:

Ready for a list as long as your arm?

Do the mountain(s) of washing that are piling up in the bathroom, blitz the house, fill previously mentioned storage drawers, keep on top of replying to my lovely blog comments, become an overnight millionaire, not buy any makeup (I need a week’s frugality), be nicer to my parents, chase up some broken promises and start looking for local nurseries for L.  EEK!

Ohhh crap, I’m supposed to be starting the Cambridge Diet this week too… I’m not sure I’m ready to give up food just yet *shuffles feet*.

  1. You had a ZX spectrum??? So did we! But it was my dad’s and all for work, I must say. We only started gaming when he changed it for a Commodore 64.
    I’m using the new l’oreal professional shampoo for delicate colors and it’s SFS free- I must say I like it a lot!

    For the flakey scalp give LUSH Snake Oil scalp massage bar a go, if you haven’t already! It really helped soothe my scalp, did a lil’ review on it on my blog a while ago if you’re interested. Highly recommend it :)

    i read this on the train this morning, whilst sitting next to a really fat man who insisted on sweating and blasting dodgy dance music (complete with whistles and oi oi ois) and i thought, i would like to freeking sleep through this. how fitting.
