more memes

In a simply fantastic attempt to dodge doing any work this morning and because Desert Island Discs is about to start and I quite fancy listening to it, I'm taking up the "8" tag given to me by the lovely Sparx whose spud has got chicken pox so I hope he is feeling better. (and also It's A Small World After All and Metropolitan Mum - I'm feeling all warm and popular, evidence that I am no longer at school, hooray!)

Here are the rules:
1. Mention the person who tagged you
2. Complete the lists of 8s
3. Tag 8 other bloggers and let them know.

8 Things I'm looking forward to
1. My second cup of coffee today

4. Christmas (a long way away I know, but we are going to Geneva and it will be great)
5. A potty trained Lukey
6. Eating the carrots from our veg patch (they're looking pretty good)

4. Got my mobile phone into a shop to be fixed.
5. Invited a load of people round for a barbeque on Saturday
6. Read quite a bit of Jo Whiley's book, My World In Motion which I am really enjoying (just loving this people sending me books to read and to review thing).
7. made homemade cheese burgers which the boys actually ate (this is no mean feat, Adam is VERY fussy)
8. Walked home from nursery with the boys along the unused train track and watched the lizards and then walked the rest of the way home pretending to be dinosaurs

2. Potty train faster
3. Train the dog not to try and eat the poo from unpotty trained bottys

Great great answers - wish I'd put 'coffee' as one of mine too... And I love the sound of your walk along the train tracks, what a great afternoon! Although you can keep your dog :¬)
