** I’m sooooooo tired today! (Read between the lines: that means grumpy as well 😉 )
** Two nights of minimal sleep in a row & a case of pmt does not a happy Kat make!
** Last nights lack of sleep possibly had something to do with the following experience? Maybe?
** I was relaxing on my bed last night, answering emails on my laptop (and procrastinating sewing) and all of a sudden I see a THING jump beside me and land on my laptop – never good if you live in Australia. You never know what it will be!
** Want to see what said THING was?!
** First please know that it took my heart about an HOUR to stop pounding afterwards!!
|sorry for the terrible pic – I wasn’t exactly going to leave it there for long to get a photo!|
** Yes, that is a little baby FROG!!! EEEK!!!!!!!!!
** On. my. BED!!???
** I promise you that I do not live in a grotto!
** That’s what I get for leaving our sliding door open a little bit during a thunder & lightening storm so that my dog could go in and out without disturbing me. Apparently my dog wasn’t the only thing coming in & out!!!
** I should say that I live across the road from a lake, so we often get frogs in our yard.
But not usually in our house!
** But wait – there’s more!
The frog had also bought a friend with it! When I went to check on the girls I saw it in the hallway just outside my girls’ bedroom.
** So I had to go chasing the hoppy little fellow down my hallway to try and trap it under a glass and set it free outside. GAH!
** Giving you nice mental picture is it?
** That experience soooooo did nothing to relax me on the first night alone again (since Neil flew back to work yesterday morning), and also during a HUGE thunder & lightening storm. Fun, fun, fun!
** On the plus side I got some more marvellous mail today! That has certainly helped brighten my mood.
** Some bee blocks arrived (from my month in August) that I thought had been lost in the mail! That was a happy happy surprise!
** Also a “little” of my black Friday/cyber Monday sale spending arrived in 2 separate parcels:
** I’m ashamed to say that there is more due to arrive any day as well.
** But who can beat $7.95AU per metre for Heather Ross Mendicino or Tanya Whelan?! And the rest were all such great prices too!
** I also picked up these gorgeous home decor weight prints at Spotlight a few days ago on clearance for $3 per metre – so cheap!
** I’m thinking that it will make lovely bags
** In other news we went to our final term time break up today – wahooo!
** Quite excited that we have a long break before things start back in February.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE all our term time activities, it’s just nice to have some flexibility back in the schedule again so that we’ll be able to have some lazy mornings & impromptu picnics etc!!
** Plus more swims since (with the last few days of thunder storms excluded) it’s getting so hot nowadays
** And finally – did you know that it’s 12 more sleeps till Christmas?
** Are you ready?
** I am! Because that means that it’s only 10 more sleeps until Neil gets home again. Yay!
** I’m not organised though – but that’s not what I asked 😉
