Five things I’ve learned today:

  1. The universe has a twisted sense of humour. So, I posted last week about my paranoia that Flea would choke to death on a piece of apple skin. And this morning, Flea choked on a piece of apple skin. Fortunately, I was sitting next to her at the time and was able to do some back slaps and get it out, but good grief – we’re so going back to peeling them tomorrow.
  2. There is something on earth more painful than standing on Lego in bare feet. It’s called “standing on a Playmobil sword”. Ouch.
  3. Never accept a first offer. So when the council rang and said I had four parking fines totalling almost £1,000, I completely panicked and said the first thing that popped into my head. Which was: “Oh bugger. Really? What’s your best offer for cash?” Which was a joke, but turned out the council quite likes cash and I saved £700 in the process.
  4. The required size of an image in a blog sidebar is always 10 pixels LESS than the size you just painstakingly made the JPG.
  5. Going to the cinema and throwing popcorn at idiot 12 year olds who talk through the movie is SO much more fun when you’re a couple in your 30s and therefore completely above suspicion. Also: what were a bunch of 12 year old boys DOING at a showing of The Proposal? Weirdos.
