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.
