Lego and a Sexy Nightgown


The Bloke gets acquainted with the TMNT

It was The Bloke’s birthday last week. As he is in his late 40’s, the concept of birthdays completely passes him by, and he gets grumpy when he has to acknowledge that he is another year older. I, on the other hand, like to make a fuss of him. It’s taken a while, but we’ve managed to work it out over the years – I make a fuss, he pretends to enjoy it. It’s a win/win, for me at least. It’s easy to buy stuff and make plans for him – he’s a total geek – and this year I outdid myself in ramping up the geek factor. I bought tickets to ‘Brick,’ the UK’s biggest Lego convention (I’m surrounded by Lego at home) and after six months of searching I managed to find a rare figurine to complete his Doctor Who collection (only to discover that the same company had brought out new figurines recently, but never mind). Brick was ok – it was smaller than I expected, with the price of Lego pieces and sets being far more expensive that in high street stores, but for avid collectors who were missing perhaps one or two mini figures it would have been absolutely perfect.

I have been back at work on supply (substitute teaching) and freelance, and I’m still very much enjoying the interaction with the staff and students and the lack of responsibility that goes with it. I must admit, I have noticed a slight change of attitude towards me from some of the younger students and new staff who don’t know my previous history at the school – nothing major, just the occasional dismissive attitude, but it’s isn’t anything I can’t handle. Some days, like today, are lots of fun – the students get on with their work and do so with a sense of humour. Others, like yesterday, are difficult and filled with attitude problems and behaviour management techniques. No two days are the same, and that’s the way I like it.

I’ve also discovered that I may have a potential career path that I had never considered before – being a personal shopper. A friend of mine is currently planning for her wedding and asked me to go shopping with her, where she mentioned that she might like to look for a nightgown for her wedding night. I chose this in Marks & Spencer’s – I think her fiancΓ© is going to be absolutely delighted!

  1. I loved Lego! I call every weekend when it’s too wet to go out and we just stay in a “Lego weekend” because that’s what I did when I was young. I don’t play with Lego on the Lego weekends now…maybe I should start again?

  2. Happy birthday to a fellow Scorpio, bloke though he may be. LOVE the flannel night dress! if it is for a wedding night, it won’t be on very long anyway. πŸ˜‰

    • Ooh I didn’t think of that – mind you, I think the nightgown would be a huge step up from my old flannel pj’s so he might be a bit overwhelmed by the new outfit!

  4. The Bloke is wished a belated happy birthday and tell him he looks younger, said by a nearly 60 year old. πŸ™‚ Smiles, Robin
    That nightgown may not slow down the action and may get the groom to crack up laughing!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Haha! Thanks Robin – I’m sure he’ll be very flattered!
      I think with what my friend has planned they’ll be too drunk to do anything anyway – at least she’ll be comfortable in that nightgown!

  5. Love the nightgown! You would excel as a personal shopper… wouldn’t that be fun? Spending other people’s money and getting to shop… win/win! Great to read your words, have been following you on facebook, just haven’t stopped long enough to visit and chat… Hope you are well.
