STEW'S LAST DAY WORKING IN PALMY ( 44 sleeps till school)

Dear Santa

So, I'm not that nice sometimes.... can I change in time for Santa to be nice to me???? I live in hope.

Stew has a busy day today, packing up his office in readiness for his move to Auckland Central..... shit it's only a couple of weeks to go!

We have a few more things to do this coming weekend to be totally ready for Christmas Day... food shopping etc. Going to be a busy few days.

To you lovely ladies out there who sent us a Christmas Card...THANK YOU.... I don't send out cards! So just know I love each and every one of you!

Some lovely news.... The Teenager from hell (Mike) finally talked to me last night after no words being exchanged for OVER A WEEK!! He apologised and tried to explain how we got into this situation....I got a big hug (melts my heart) and now all is good between us again! I am so relieved, I hate it when there is friction between me and my kids.

Yipeee..... done and dusted, finished the Christmas Shopping at last... I thought I was finished days ago... but NOOOOO, just had to get a couple more! Shopping with two kids isn't that bad, I asked them to sit nicely on the floor in a china shop and they did! People came and went and commented on how bloody wonderful they were sitting there so nicely! Awwwwww.

I took the horror (Griffin) out for a haircut..... talk about a fidget arse !!!!! The hairdresser kept saying "Keep still" and he said :

"LADY, my middle name is STILL !"...... everyone in the salon cracked up laughing! How could you NOT love this friggin kid?
End of Day: been to visit my friend Chris, her husband is so sick the poor bugger! It looks like he has lost 30 kilos in the past couple of months, I feel so sorry for them. When I am bitching and moaning about my annoying family I really must remember that other people are facing much much worse things.
NSV: I could not eat even half of the chinese I got myself for lunch today! nite nite.


  1. Define good. ummm?!

  2. I'm so glad you've sorted things out now, you must be so relieved.
    I usually send out about 100 cards at Christmas with photos and a newsletter updating everyone on what we've been doing. Didn't do it this year, couldn't be bothered - and anyway it would be filled with misery guts type stuff!! Good luck with the shopping. I have to do the same and I haven't even planned the menu yet! BAH....

  3. Woo hoo. Teenagers!!!! They just have to do things in their own time. So pleased all is well in the land of Chris. Have a great weekend. Jim finishes work today too so has suggested shopping this afternoon!!!!! Men!!!! I love shopping but not with everyone else in the city!!!!!! LOL

  4. That is wonderful that you sorted things out....hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas x

  5. My Dear Friend Chris,
    I am so glad to hear that you are all healthy and happy. I want to take this opportunity to say thankyou for being such a great blogging friend this year, and I look forward to talking to you about many topics in the new year!!
    Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and yours!!

  6. Glad its all sorted.. nothing worse than icyness in the home...
    I have only done a few cards... lifes too hectic... sat up til past midnight finishing off a few more home made cards..thats it now...
    they will prob get there late.. but thats life...

  7. I hate friction as well - so pleased to hear he came around, I thought he would. They can melt your hearts at times:-)

  8. Hi Chris! Nice to meet you! Glad you have sorted things out at home... even more glad that I don't have teenagers any more (having said that, you just get other different er issues!)
    Here's wishing you and yours a happy christmas and peaceful new year!

  9. I'm glad everything is sorted out you're back on speaking terms. Makes for a nicer Christmas.

  10. Hope you guys are not effected by the earthquake this morning ..... Not sure where it was but in the north somewhere ....??

  12. LMAO - Griffin DEFINITELY doesn't take after you at all does he? :-)

    Oh i'm dreading the teenage years already, don't think i've heard too many positives about them, of course I could live in hope that my angel will break the mould of usual teenagers - I WISH!!!

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
