A week in tweets – #criedforabit

Can I just say how genuinely excited I am by the fact that people are actually joining in my new thing – seriously, every time I get a message saying someone has added something to my linky, I get my smiley, trying-not-to-look-too-chuffed, face on, like when I score a goal at netball.

So thanks for that.

*beams casually*

This week I’m going to do something a bit different and tweet as Belle. For those of you who aren’t regular readers, Belle is nine, and a little on the dramatic side. She is wonderful of course – full of energy and passion – but she was what some might call a ‘sensitive’ baby, and she has yet to grow out of it.

I should say too that I did ask her before I did this and she said it was fine, I’m not just teasing her in secret.

Monday – Have to tidy my room again. So unfair. I already did it last month and I like my clothes on the floor. #criedforabit

Tuesday – Really hungry but Mummy only offering fruit. Something about dinner in ten minutes. Fine. I’ll just starve. #criedforabit

Wednesday – Wish I wasn’t banned from watching Disney Channel. Where else can I go for advice on sucky nail beds? #criedforabit

Thursday – Had to get up for school. Again. Why? Why? #criedforabit

Friday – Said I’d cleaned my teeth but no one believes me even though I ran my toothbrush under the tap. #criedforabit

Saturday – Not allowed chocolate brioche for tea, even though I ate five grapes yesterday. Mummy obviously hates me. #criedforabit

Sunday – Mummy says five episodes of H2O is plenty. Disagree. Wish I was a mermaid and could swim away to island paradise full of brioche. #criedforabit

    This has really made me smile. Going to have a go myself next week. In the meantime…

    Tuesday. Day off work. Wanted to lie in until 12, go into town for shopping, lunch and a pedi. Cleaned the house. #criedforabit

      Oh! That doesn’t sound like a fun Tuesday :-( Perhaps go and have a little G&T now to make up for it?

    Another week and another great entry – Fab stuff!

      Thank you! I had a bit of help from Bee this week – we wrote them together on a napkin when we were out for dinner – so I can’t take all the credit!

    Monday, Tuesday and Friday for sure! I’ve assumed a slightly less human alter ego for my week in Tweets this week.

    Read these from the perspective of my yougest.. Very true! #criedforabit

      We’ve taken to using it at home as just something we say whenever Belle is having a strop. Possibly a little cruel…

    I remember all this so well. Very amusing set of tweets.

    • 10 April, 2012 / 6:45 am

      You wouldn’t think she were only nine would you?? I shall be doing another set today from my 16 year old daughter, I wonder if they’ll be much different!

    Have just discovered you, and your week in tweets. Love the concept! Might have a go myself next week…
