On a more positive note

So you see, I had quite a decent sleep last night and all those boys seem pretty chilled today so I’m all, ‘what are you complaining about you thin-skinned wench?’

Things I have done in the last few days/weeks that have been lovely or at least given me a sense of achievement:
– made two batches of particularly tasty granola
– made a green Thai vegetable curry that Felix and I truly enjoyed
– had a vegetarian dinner of veggies, a lemon tahini dressing and millet which was delicious AND discovered Jasper LOVES millet. Go fucking figure that one out (I guess it’s beige and has a similar texture to rice/pasta/couscous)
– helped Oscar make chocolate wheaties biscuits
– been using basil and spinach (silverbeet) from the garden. The silverbeet has been sensational – because you can pick it younger than you can get in the shops it has been the most sensational salad leaf alternative.
– saw Avatar – awesome in its awesomeness
– Rediscovered the restorative power of the ocean – as well as how much fun it can be
– made several batches of jam – am about to make another batch of plum and cinnamon and nectarine and passionfruit today
– made a delightful batch of cranberry muffins which were low fat and high fibre
– managed to pay the car rego and greenslip
– cleared two debts and are up to date on the car loan
– know the health insurance will be back up to date this time next week
– mum and I having lovely chats – today’s one had mum asking if she drove me mad to which I replied in the affirmative and then she told me I drove her mad to which I replied that was the core of the mother daughter relationship. All good really.

Anyway, I’m off to make some jam.

    Wow! Very impressive.

    It's amazing what a good sleep will do for the state of mind, too, isn't it? I am unbearable (for everyone, including myself) if deprived of sleep.

    And hoorah for good food and fewer debts!

    sleep !!!! Sleep is pivotal! Even now with kids at 18 and 15 – it only takes a few broken nights and I am back at PND and crying and walking into walls.

    You and your mum…. thats hysterical (and I hate to say this , but the simple fact that you can both admit that is awesome !)

    That's a helluva list! My heart sang a bit at the "cleared two debts" bit. It's a great feeling when debts are cleared. Since I'm not clearing any, I'm glad someone is. 🙂

    I canned tomatoes & peaches this past fall and am looking forward to trying my hand at jam making.
