Ooh la la, Valentine’s Day gets us all hot under the collar and seemingly minxy on the blogs but it’s got me in trouble with a big T.

I very innocently signed up for Web Mums – a very well profiled ning site for Mums who want to work from home – WOWEE! I was accepted to join and as promised, I jumped straight in. Heading straight to the blogger network, I could not help but put my url in, but I was soon accosted by a lingerie seller. Checking out the blog I found they were advertising none other than MAN BRAs – I kid you not, MAN BRAs. So having been accosted, I could not help myself and we had quite a conversation, as follows, remember this flows upwards so don’t read down:

I’ve just texted my boyfriend to ask if he would like a man bra for valentine’s day – I consider myself chucked already!

I don’t think people would bother to scroll down. You see the horrible picture of mens bras and then go and look at another web site

no honey, i you scroll down or read the archive

Advertising worse product which u dnt sell will let the people have curiosity to see what you sell
it is not advertising your product as I did not refer to my site in it
You have to have the good and the bad news

oh I see, but you should not market yourself on the worst item, what is the best selling item, then I might be interested…if you are looking for the Delia effect on cooking you don’t sell meat past it’s sell by date – tell me, what is Angelina Jolie wearing in her latest film or what did Kate Winslet wear to get her Oscar nomination??

So following this little dalliance, which left me very cold under the collar, I texted my boyfriend to test drive this Man Bra phenomenon –

Q If you had underwear for Valentine’s Day, how would you feel?
A Depends what it looked like
Q A man bra?
A Ok weird
Q Your are kidding! You mean you would accept one or it’s just plain weird?
A I don’t have boobs
Q So are you still speaking to me??
A Why are you being weird?

Ho hum…

all names have been changed…

Yes, the about turn of non stop whirl of working life leads, one thinks, to a life of leisure. But the thing is, I’m one of those people who just needs to think about doing one thing and then life just seems to get really frantic, well, not frantic but sometimes it’s the equivalent of a drop of water on a Gremlin.

Take for example a simple trip to my storage unit yesterday. Easy enough, drop off stuff, pick up stuff and enjoy a lengthy lunch in a local posh pub…

I’m thanking my lucky stars that I went actually – I opened up the door to find all my storage boxes had collapsed and there has been a damp problem in that area of the building following the cold snap. So now it’s a case of unpacking, repacking and moving units – what a zen-like task and what a pain in the arse too. However, on the bright side, I only go there once a year or so and if I hadn’t gone everything would have rotted. I think some of my stuff is ruined. I went there to take a stack of packing boxes which cost me a fortune last time I moved and I stubbornly refuse to ditch them.

So now they’ve gone from my house, amazingly the space is already replaced by a new load of boxes from my meanderings online in a few of my favourite shops. I ordered a Dyson animal on Amazon which looks amazing. It replaces my old Dyson which I thought was fine, even though it’s 10 years old. I asked my cleaner why the rugs always looked so dirty and she said it was the Dyson, she told me it was like using a toy hoover – I was mortified, so I had to replace it. Pricey to say the least but it’s built to last and it had £50 off.

Next a delivery from figleaves – I’m really impressed since I placed the order less than 48 hours ago, most of it is 50-70% off. Then my White Company delivery – great! Kids hangers for Miniminx’s ward robe, and the Brighton Bath Towel rail which I’ve waited and waited for a discount on but it’s never in the sale so I jumped straight in. I’d forgotten that I’d bought a backgammon set reduced from £80 to £35 and so that was a neat surprise and 30% off scented candle is my other bargain. It’s like Christmas day with all this arriving.

But last night my very disappointing Sainsburys shop arrived with a lot missing. The driver was apologetic but it’s not his fault. I’d gone for a lot of 2 for 1 offers and some were missing. They’ve also done the old – give the internet shopper stuff that’s nearly out of date trick – so my 2 for 3 on rice noodles is ridiculous as I only get through a pack every three days and the sell by is tomorrow. Bummer. Even worse, three of us were playing on Wii Fit and my Super Hoola record score was reduced as we had to get the door – it was actually quite funny tho.

And the job hunt? Pah, there’s nothing go on so I’m looking forward to getting my hair done (an essential for job hunting) and visiting the dole office tomorrow. I’ve decided to take a positive approach and try and see what courses are available to me in my out-of-work state.

Is anyone else blogging about being unemployed? I seem to be unable to find anyone out there…am I missing something??
