1. I had an item on my goals list from last month to post 10 times on the babies' blog.
I managed 5 complete posts (don't be impressed - it's pics mainly and here and there a caption or line of text) and did the pics only (without moving them to the middle or spacing nicely) for the rest.
I thought I'd log into that account to quickly sort that out.
Gosh, I need to never get behind again.
(by the way, the 5 posts is not what I'm talking about when I say behind. I had pics from 2011 randomly dotted here and there)
(it was good to see the babies looking like REAL babies)
(ps sorry if you subscribe to that blog as there will be a feedburner update tomorrow with 20-odd posts. once I started I couldn't stop)

Things I like - they keep telling me how well my kids eat and "do they really drink water like this all the time"? (yes, they do. I am STILL waiting for the "picky toddler eating stage" - in fact, that's another post because it's like 3 really hungry adults live here)
They actually bring home decent things, not rubbish. We have tie-dyed t-shirts and mosaic mirrors. And chocolates which I haven't yet allowed them to eat.
Things I don't like - the drive home mid-day. Oh, man, it does my head in. On Thursday, Connor was all "I want you to staaaaaayyyyy, Mummy" while wailing and what should have been a one-hour round trip took 1.5 hours with all the peeing, cajoling, herding, and then the unloading, peeing, kissing good-bye, crying, more kissing and hugging.
Also, I got a headache on Thursday from the driving around in the sun. Yes, I'm not meant to be out and about in the heat.
So Friday I worked from home in the afternoon... only because the boss is off sick. I have taken this and next Friday as half days so only 4 more days to do the drive home midday.
|love the framing in this pic|
I'm really tempted to buy a lot of food but I have to keep reminding myself that kids actually don't eat a lot of anything. My kids do, but not most kids :)
I told the babies that their birthday is coming up and asked them what they want. Kendra said, "popcorn" and Connor said, "sweets and shokit (chocolate)" :) They are so easy to please.

Have you ever had really lovely (negative) feedback like this?

This week I am doing nothing except the basics because I want to research and decide on my city tours in NYC and Charlotte so I can put the poor Mandys and Deanna at ease with my plans :) Well, that and party planning.
(I need to start getting sorted because I had a nightmare where I arrived at OR Tambo and I couldn't find my passport or any flight info, and then another nightmare this week where I ran into a colleague while waiting to board and realised I didn't have my camera!!! This dreaming is always a sign that I'm not dealing with things in my life )
My goals for the week
- newsletter and blogs
