Happenings

Yesterday

: Daisy had a very unfortunate accident with a stiletto, a fall, and a 1 in a million land
: We gave our local GP his strangest ever incident to check out
: I tried to put together an IKEA expedit bookcase without the screws or Allen key
: Needless to say it didn’t work
: I bought a new plant for the back door that makes me happy
: I did 2 loads of washing
: I opened a bottle of French champagne to celebrate/commiserate with my husband
: I got my period when I *thought* I could be duffed
: I realised that was why I was a screaming banshee on Monday
: Surprised myself that I was disappointed. Huh
: I took a block of mozzarella from the neighbours as I didn’t want to drive to the shops
: Was reminded that everyone really does need good neighbours. We have them in spades

This Morning

: I went for a run and had my fastest ever time
: I stood on the scales and am just 100 grams away from losing a total of 5 KILOS
: Felt great. Seriously proud of myself.
: Walked into town with my two girls stopping to chat along the way
: Felt a part of the community. It feels good
: Dropped my biggest girl at Primary School for a whole day orientation
: Cried as she tried on the uniform and hat
: Cried as all the kids stood in line at assembly and sang the National Anthem
: Watched my littlest at the park able to swing “all by mahself”
: Smugly sat back as my kid swung herself
: Pondered how kids really do grow up so quickly

Tonight

: I am up in Sydney at Nudiversity catching up with Mrs Woogs and Eden
: I will drink too many glasses of wine
: I won’t have to put any children to bed
: I will go to sleep and not be woken up

Tomorrow

: I will be up early, driving home
: Will no doubt have a hangover
: It’s FLIPPING DECEMBER! How?

    Im so getting me a baby in one years time. And everytime I get my period I’m disappointed coz I’d love it to be an accident. Also. I can not believe that stiletto accident. Kerazy. Enjoy Syders! *s*

    I have been pondering the kids growing up thing lately too. It’s bittersweet.

    See you tonight!

    Nudiversity sounds like naked university… I’m sure it’s actually something to do with Diversity but I like it better the other way :)

    Stilettos – a handy weapon to have when in danger. Poor cherub!

    I wish I lived in Australia with you and Mrs Woog and wine.

    Packing my bags STAT as to indulge in loads of wine with you fabulous Aussie ladies (plural cause I love me some Corinne). You guys have much more fun Down Under!

    I’m not sure what happened with the stiletto but it sounds painful. Poor thing :(

    I can’t believe you went running when you had your period! I always use my period as an excuse to do absolutely nothing.

    I’m going to nudiveristy tonight too! I’m so excited to actually meet you! Although I keep having overwhelming feelings that no one will know who I am..

    you have a very ‘eclectic’ assortment of things going on in your life right now :)
    think, if you had been pregnant, nudiversity with mrs woog and eden wouldn’t have been half as fun without the wine :)
    Well done on almost losing 5kgs! I so wish that was something I could claim right now. Are you still doing the no sugar thing? I have been without computer for a while, so just trying to catch up on things :)

    5kgs? WOO! Go girl.

    And another baby in the making soon? Double woo!

    Have fun tonight. xx

    Oooh weeee is somebody clucky?!?! DO IT. You make such beautiful babies, surely another one would be a good idea, yes? xx

    I know it’s inappropriate – but i’m intrigued by Daisy’s fall. Poor love. I hope she supresses the memory.
    Ah- the ‘period’ disappointment. I know it all too well. Too, too well. The cruel part of nature is that pre period symptoms are very bloody similar to ‘oh my god, I swear I think I’m pregnant’ symptoms.
    Thanks for the set up Mother nature, you cow.
    Oh – and thanks for waiting precisely 12 hours after I’ve bought and used the pregnancy test to ‘flow’ every time too.

    On a less yep-I’m-not-damn-well-pregnant-either note, good neighbours are the bomb.

    Nice work on the run (a P.B.!!) and the win on the scales.
    Have the greatest night – at least you can enjoy your beverages now.
    Silver lining to the single blue line.
    :-)

    Hmm, the unwanted period, it’s a universal feeling lady. Hugs xo

    Mate wait to she starts doing shit at school and getting awards and stuff. I just walk in our school gates and start crying! The most embarrassing was this time 2 years ago when Billie was in kindy and i went down to pick her up and the whole school is doing a hand tunnel thing for the year 6 kids and OMG the crying! Imagine when my kid is actually IN year 6! :)
