Yesterday when I was on my post car pick up high I rushed to a local town to pick up a present for Tim & Kesh and their impending arrival. I was loving myself silly in the shiny car, listening to Harper in the back seat say over and over again “Mummy the car is FANCY! And blue! And fancy!” nailed the first reverse park in it (on a VERY main road nonetheless) and ran into one of my favourite shops round these parts. I picked out a little something gorgeous and was chatting to the lady wrapping it for me who said,
“You’re BabyMac aren’t you?”
At this point, my ego grew EVEN larger, which on the pay day of the fancy car arrival, I thought not even humanly possible.
“Yes, yes I am” I replied smugly, trying to sound as cool as a cucumber.
She then proceeded to say, and I kid you not,
“OH MY GOD I LOVE MRS WOOG. She is SO funny. So, did she stay for Easter, or for Anzac Day? I read her every single day and she just cracks me up!”
“Yes, she’s pretty funny” I replied, trying to talk a little more about me, seeing as I was there and you know, purchasing goods with money from their store.
“Yes! She is SO funny! Can you tell her I read her blog every day? EVERY DAY! I mean I read yours and Eden’s when I can, but hers? EVERY DAY!”
I even proceeded to talk about the car, the latest Kidspot win, just to see if I could win her, turn her around but she was not having a bar of it.
“Oh a car? That’s great. I haven’t read that. Cause I don’t read yours every day. I should go read that.”
Well played Mrs Woog, well played.
This morning I am off to Tim Coulson’s Nursery Workshop for the day. I am beyond excited to learn, really learn some stuff. I want to know how to USE my camera, and not just switch it to auto. It’s going to be a great day, I can feel it in my waters.
This weekend we also have my Mum’s 60th up in Sydney which will be lovely. I swear to God I remember my Mum’s 40th like it was yesterday which is both frightening because it was 20 years ago and also because I myself am almost nearing that age. When did that happen? Rob is teaching a course for AFTRS on Monday so we might stick around in Sydney on Sunday and go to the Zoo or something because he will be staying up Sunday night as well. It’s going to be a very busy couple of days. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
And also? You should totally read Mrs Woog’s blog if you get a chance, I hear it’s very funny.
