Goodness ME it’s been a busy week. The weeks are just flying by and the moment which is great and exhausting at the same time. It’s Monday and then the next thing I know it’s Friday afternoon in JUNE. I’d quite like to slow things down for a bit, next thing I know it will be Christmas.
The week has been very preoccupied with local things – the Ball is on next weekend and we are in full prep mode for that. It’s all coming together well and I can’t wait to share the end result with you all once it’s all done. There’s something about an event that I love to prep for – all the anticipation and creativity and evolves as it takes shape…I should have been an event planner or something. I’ve also been very bust working on an application for a grant for our local Hall. It’s been time consuming and quite annoying with application forms and attachments and diagrams and staples…reminded me of my old life in financial planning…I do NOT miss that!
Daisy has turned a corner with School thanks to the amazing efforts from Rob. He has taken her each morning for the past 2 weeks and she has not shed one tear as a result. He has even managed to drop her off and escape before Assembly starts…something I would NEVER have been able to do. I might start to take her again next week and see how we go, we might just be there! That is, until the term ends, we get holidays and the whole things starts over again.
This morning I was up and at it early for a quick trip to Sydney and back again. The traffic was a breeze so I got to Surry Hills nice and early which meant time in a cafe…alone…in Sydney. Wow. I poured over that menu…looked at the eggs Benedict and bacon and all the goodness in between and went with the MOFO Quinoa PORRIDGE. I must be growing up or something right? The best bit was the stewed rhubarb and when it was finished and done. You can take the bacon out of the girl but you can NEVER TAKE THE BACON AWAY FROM THE GIRL. Or something.
Look! It’s me! In the city! WITHOUT BACON IN MY BELLY. See? I’m not happy. Imagine if that was New York? All I’m saying is that if I am lucky enough to win that Kidspot trip to BlogHer my heartburn better be sorted out. Imma NOT eating porridge in America.
My sister in law sent me this today. My (9yro) nephew wrote this. No words needed. None at all. He’s got a point…how long can we look at each other? Down the barrel of a gun? Funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time!
This weekend we have a date with our garden. And hedges. And lawns. We have no visitors. No lunches or dinners to attend or host. Just us, our home and some spare time. I’m beside myself with excitement. What are you up to? Whatever it is, I hope it’s marvellous.
And filled with bacon.
