A big thank you to all you lovely ladies out there – it’s nice to know that feeling a bit grey, blue or just plain overtired is a feeling that others know (probably know TOO well!) as much as I do. Your good vibes all came this way, and together with a couple of early nights, I am feeling a whole heap better today. Thank you.
Mr 5 is well pleased with this – his mother is not yelling at him at full volume today. At half volume, he is easily able to ignore that ringing tone in his ears that is “His Mother’s Voice”….. *sigh*
I must have been tired too – last night, I fell asleep on the couch while watching the Crusaders game. That has never happened before. Mainly to disallow any chance of DH hassling me about a poor performance from the boys. Happily for me, last night was not a poor performance and I can still keep that One Eye open. 😆
On the creative front, I did the fifth class in the Colourtech course yesterday. I’ll share once I have the photo taken. I also completed a Circle Journal page for Susanne in Australia. This was on chocolate – and funny for me (as I really do love the stuff) it was quite hard to pull it together. In the end, I think I did OK. Tonight I hope to finish a page for the SE girls circle journal. I’m doing Christi’s challenge this round… so I don’t think I ought to be putting sneak peeks up. I will say though, that it was a challenge, but I’m hoping I got there – and Thanks Christi, I did enjoy it!
And while doing a quick catch up on the Blog rounds – I see Hannah has tagged me. A meme on what *Real Mums* do. Firstly, I’ll have to confess that although I get the *tag* business, I have absolutely no idea what a *meme* is. Anyone caring to enlighten me and probably a few others: feel free to do so by leaving a comment. 😆 In the meantime, I’m assuming that I do likewise with the tag – you’ll just have to watch this space because it involves taking a photo for it. That and I have to figure out who I can tag…. 😆
I also had a great catch up with a SIL in the US today. Their daughter is in the process of deciding on the college she will be attending. Sounds like she has some great choices. The one that sounds exciting at the moment is in Raleigh, Nth Carolina. The company DH works for has offices there, and it is always a potential possibility that gets considered from time to time (no-one reading this should get overly excited – you should note the *potential possibility* statement!). Would be kinda cool to have the place vetted thoroughly for us in advance though!
Oh, and while I am having a catch-up – I see on Ali Edwards’ site, she has managed to reach an amazing total of over $20,000 for Autism Speaks Inc. We are continually amazed at how many people we know that are affected by this disorder. It seems to be something that is more and more prevelent these days. Our family is unable to donate to this particular research fundraiser as you need to be a US resident to do so. However, if you are reading this, and are able to do so, we would encourage you to donate a small amount and help this fundraiser grow. Thanks in advance!
Oh – and one final thing before I sign off – or you fall asleep while reading! *Hope you did well in the Real Woman Duatholon event, Karen!!!*
Now I am off to check the lamb roast cooking in my new oven…………mmmmmmmmmm….Sunday Roast…. 😆
