Weekend fun

Jack was in respite this weekend so I spent Sunday in bed reading. How decadent is that? Holly and her boyfriend David made me brunch in bed too, so spoiled wasn't the word.

A couple of hours later Holly came up with David, holding a pair of tweezers asking if I would pluck his eyebrows for him! "Are you sure?" I asked him "cos it will be painful!".  "Yeah, it's fine" he said.

Half an hour later (and some pain for David) I was finished and he looked so much better. Even he thought so as he admired himself in the mirror!

I was quite chuffed that he was willing to be at my mercy but apparently Holly had told him of my skills with the tweezers. I never realised I was good at shaping eyebrows until people started commenting and asking where I got them done.  I think I have passed my skill onto Holly cos she is pretty nifty with the tweezers too.

David and Holly  (before I attacked him with the tweezers!)

After David went home, Holly's bezzie mate Diz arrived with her bags as she was staying a couple of nights. She wasn't in the house 5 minutes and we were already giggling.  We watched a couple of movies, one of them was the Disney movie Tangled which I had bought the day before.

OMG that horse is so so funny! When it got to the part where Eugene dies, Diz starts shouting at the screen saying "No he can't die! I bet she just sings and brings him back to life" and both Holly and I say "no it's not that easy". So Diz starts coming up with ways to bring him back to life and I am rolling about on the sofa, crying with laughter at Holly's face cos she went through this exact same scenario with me the night before when we were watching it!

Finally when Diz runs out of ways to bring him back to life, Holly states "it's a Disney movie Diz, of course he is not gonna frigging die!" and we all fall about laughing again as Diz looks so relieved.

Who knew you could have so much fun watching a Disney movie!

Later on, we were watching the comedy movie Killers and we were winding Holly up about people jumping out on her. Then she needed the toilet and wouldn't go by herself so Diz and the dogs went through with her. All was quiet for about 5 mins and then I just heard screaming and Holly came flying into the living room, screeching like a banshee, as if she was being chased by some demon.

Holly and Diz - big kids at the park

Over the top of that, you could hear Diz, who had jumped out on her as she came through the hall, howling with laughter. Diz couldn't speak she was laughing so hard and then we were all rolling about in hysterics. I laughed so hard I cried, my stomach hurt and I couldn't get breath. After what seemed like forever we managed to control ourselves and Diz said through her laughter "God, I've missed you guys".

And we had missed her too cos she really makes us laugh.
