Bulleted Sunday

  • It feels like it’s been raining for months.
  • I adore the rain.
  • We completely rearranged the back room on Friday night.
  • Our ‘back room’ is our dining room, office, living room, play room.
  • It was an ambitious and somewhat stupid time to start this process.
  • Saturday morning was family brunch to celebrate Chef’s birthday.
  • He was 38 on Wednesday.
  • I got to bed at 3am and was up at 6.15am.
  • Such little sleep was as awful as I remembered it to be.
  • I have not been coping with the reality that this house as become Tantrum Central.
  • Even Grover got sent to his room today.
  • My inlaws returned from their trip to the Gulf country late last week after being away for about six weeks.
  • Tomorrow, I’m dropping Grover up at their place afer I take Oscar to speech and then drop him at school and Jasper at kindy.
  • I’m so excited I’m not sure what I’ll do but I do know there will be a component of browsing with no agenda.
  • I’ve been making my own sourdough breads for the last two weeks and I’m still not happy with them but it’s such glorious dough to work with I am persevering.
  • Tonight I made vegetable pasties for dinner and they were sensational.
  • I even made the pastry and it didn’t split or break or anything.
  • I’ve lost three kilos which is good but not near the goal I had set for myself this term.
  • Last week I organised appointments for Oscar at the paediatrician, dentist and cp specialist and dealt with my gallbladder.
  • This week will be calls to another kindy to say we’d still like a spot and a local music school to investigate keyboard lessons for Felix and local sporting associations to find out about possibilities for Oscar.
  • My MIL brought me over a big bag of lemons, so this week will also feature the production of quite a few jars of lemon butter.
  • Our internet connection and payTV for that matter have been dodgy for the last three weeks or so.
  • It’s been really quite annoying.
  • Tomorrow, the fifth serviceman – an engineer no less – will pay us a visit to try and work out why the hell it’s not working.
  • Possums have been decimating our backyard for years.
  • After doing some research I am trying the whole new approach of actually leaving food out for them.
  • Apparently if you do this they eat that and not your plants/parsley/passionfruit vine/lime tree.
  • That or I am a complete idiot.
