Random Happenings….


Breakfast Excitement – Do you know how I started my day this morning?  My pyjama sleeve caught on fire!!!  Nothing like a bit of terror to start the day!!!!!  I don’t know what I was thinking  – my pyjama sleeve dangling over the gas hot plate when I was cooking Ben some pancakes for breakfast.  And how do you think I put it out?  My cook top is not even a step away from the sink……. but no I didn’t use the sink.  I patted it out with my other hand. What an IDIOT!!  Mental Note:  Make sure I am fully awake when cooking breakfast!!!


School Enrollment – Andrew and I finally decided on a school for Ben.  I don’t know if it is a difficult decision for all parents but I have been making myself sick over it.  Yesterday I finalised it all and found myself trembling.  I really hope that I have made the best decision for my son.  We have gone with the local Anglican College.  I am feeling very anxious!


What??? – Yesterday I popped into the pet shop to pick up some supplies for Bonnie.  I was chatting away to the owner  and I did not hear what he said to me.  Instead of saying ‘pardon’ I said ‘what?!!’.  I didn’t realise what I did at first.  Then I stopped talking and asked if I just said ‘What’.  The owner laughed and laughed as he saw how embarrassed I was.  Wow…… you know I don’t think i even said ‘What’.  I think it was more like ‘WHA?’.  Mortified…. another Mental Note: Find my Manners!!


Blog Excitement – Yesterday was a big day for our little blog.  I had linked up with Heather from Life Made Lovely Monday.  I am very excited to say that I got nearly 200 visits, mostly on the Princess Leia cupcake.   The cupcake even got re-posted by Meaghan to Craft Gossip – Edible Crafts. I rang Andrew at work and said ‘I have fourteen comments on the Princess Leia cupcake.  It’s gone viral!’.  I may have been delirious at the time lol!!!  I am sure that today we will be back to ten visits…. most of them family xo




Loveliness – My beautiful niece Maggie made this for my for my birthday.  It arrived in the post on Monday and just took my breath away.   It is the teacher in me that gets  so excited when children begin writing.  I also just adore Maggie’s picture  – me with my vegetable patch and chickens….love it.  Maggie’s Mum Tina is pretty amazing to remember my birthday this year.  What a GEM!  So thanks to the Lattimore’s in Chinchilla  and all my family and friends for my lovely birthday well wishes xo.
