One of my virtual sewing bee buddies Lucinda does this most weeks over at her blog. I always enjoy reading it, so I thought I might give it a go myself. Thanks Lucinda for the inspiration!! – It really has helped cleanse my brain.
So this is what is going on with me at the moment…
** Neil has resumed working away
** He flew away last Friday.
** It has been well over a year since he worked away last time.
** He is on a 4 week away, 1 week at home roster.
** It’s pretty sucky.
** I miss him, and do not like single parently 2 babies…
** Kudos to my single mummy friends – you guys are awesome – single parenting is hard!!
** Hannah is a big help.
** She cheers me up even in my darkest moments
** She talks to me CONSTANTLY – so it is not possible that I would ever feel alone…
** It is mostly nonsense talk – but talk none the less… I get to use up ALL my words…
** … “look Mummy there’s the moon. It is a fat moon today. Watch, watch mummy – see it’s a fat moon?… I don’t want a fat moon Mummy! Mummy can you make the skinny moon come back?…”
** “I’m sorry Hannah, I can’t make the skinny moon come back – it will come back soon…”
** “Ok. Maybe on Friday then – after my sleep. Do you think it will come back by then Mummy…”
** “Ummmmmmmmmmmm….. “!!!!!?????!!!! …. “Look Hannah – can you see that big truck?”
** I recently got a speeding ticket.
** As a result of this said speeding ticket I have made myself proficient in using my cruise control
** That last post was specifically for my husband – see what I do for you – I learnt a gadget!!
* Insert big cheesy I love you grin
** Abbie’s teeth are getting close
** This makes her grumpy
** This makes ME grumpy
** Hannah keeps waking up sometime in the 5ams
** This wakes me and Abbie up
** This does not help the grumpiness!!
** I have not had more than 6 hours sleep for nearly a month.
** In fact the last 2 weeks 4-5 hours of sleep is as good as it gets
** That is not enough if you ask me!!
** That’s the biggest thing I miss about before having kids… mmmm…. sleep…..
** I really appreciate my mothers group friends who wrote nice things about me over the last couple of days
** Thank you nice mothers group friends.
** It helped me to know that you are there for me.
** Sometimes I do not like being a girl 😉
** I am wondering if whether it is just me – or whether PMT really does multiply with each baby you have?!
** Maybe the exhaustion just takes away the coping mechanisms!?
** Boys are lucky
** One of Hannah and my favourite things to do is to watch the kite surfers and the wind surfers at the beach
** I’d love to fly like they do over the water.
** But I will never try it – it looks far too much like hard work.
** Yesterday we watched the kites for 15 mins on the way home from Hannah’s daycare
** It made us both very happy – there were a lot of kites out. This is half of them…
** Despite all the lack of sleep and other muck, I am very thankful for my life.
** It is a really good one…
** I have a great family
** … I am happy.
** Enjoy the rest of your week…

I love this post!! You make me laugh: “Ummmmmmmmmmmm….. “!!!!!?????!!!! …. “Look Hannah – can you see that big truck?”
Loved spending time with you and your beautiful girls today – I got a bit sunburned, did you? Maybe it was windburn, it was windy!
And thanks again for the love: going through all this muck, and you still worry about my muck! Love ya xx
