Learn Something new Everyday

Yesterday I learned..........how embarrassing it can be to go out with a daughter.......sitting in Costa........on the next table was an elderly lady with long hair so matted it stood up by itself.......said daughter spent 5 minutes trying to surreptitiously take a pic of her on her mobile phone......why???.......I decided I didn't want to know!!!



But same daughter learned.......it's not a good idea to buy foundation based on the shade name........though why 'nearly nude' should make her face look orange, I don't know........I mean......how many nearly nude orange people do you know......on second thoughts....don't answer that.
Today I learned just how impatient I am.....though I probably already knew that one.......as I wait for a little grand daughter to be born.........today is her due date.......but she's obviously not as keen to meet the world.......as we are to meet her......though there are a few hours left yet!!
So instead of pacing the floor....what do you do...you learn something new!!
We have 2 over abundant apple trees.......so I learned to make apple sauce [OH loves with pork]
I learned to make apple muffins
I learned to make spiced apple tray bake
and I also stewed lots of apples to freeze for crumbles etc........you'll be pleased to hear......I already knew how to do that.
I'm just hoping that tomorrow I can learn what it's like having a grand daughter.

Oh dear me, that made me chuckle Jacky - I'm horribly afraid I might have tried the same thing myself in Costa's!!!

As to the Bare Escentuals - I love them and have never really had the problem of even being able to see anything other than a natural healthy look so either the shade was SO completely wrong for DD or she put it on with a makeup sponge instead of a bruch - either way - that made me smile too . . . a lot!!! Maybe she buffed and swirled but forgot to tap!

Muffins look super yummy too

I love this post!!!! I too would have been there with my camera, given half the chance!!! I work as a beauty consultant, so I'm familiar with that make-up scenarion & my mouth is now watering at all those apple-y goodies!! Hope that the little one puts in an appearance soon...bearing in mind that my first was NINE days late!!!

humel said...

Yummy apple goodies!! Can we all come over and share?!

Hope you get to meet the little princess SOON! xx

Cheri said...

Be patient on the baby front - let her finish cooking and she'll come in her own sweet time - due dates are only guestimates anyway. But while you are waiting to become a grandma, you can come bake for me! All your apple delicacies look scrumptious!

Amy said...

My goodness .... you do your learning well Jacky! At least everyone will be well fed throughout the waiting :-) Keep us posted with any news - we are eagerly awaiting this little girl's arrival!
