- kids to school
- pack the bags
- clean the house (just in case some bugger wants to view it while we are away)
- give key to house sitter, thanks Mike!

I think that's all I have to do..... once I pick up the kids after school it's out to the airport for our flight to Auckland.

I havn't told the kids we are going yet, they think we are going out to the airport to pick up Stew .... hee hee he! Won't they be surprised when we actually get on the plane instead!

I will do my best to update while I am away, but if it's sporadic.... tough shit! I'm on holiday! I'm having fun! NO HOUSEWORK!!! How bloody cool is THAT going to be? Gawd I can't wait.

The Estate Agent just rang, seems we do have viewers coming in over the weekend... which means I will have to vacum afterall.... dammit. Today is going so S.....L....O....W.....L....Y.

Made a 'weekend' resolution: I ain't gunna eat any chocolate, not one teeny tiny bit. If I stick to this, I am going to reward myself with some elbow and knee pads, for when I get my skates! Yipee, I can hardly wait! NOT that I intend to fall over....much!

If I remember rightly, last year my boys gave me some of this:

It is my favourite chocolate treat... DON'T GET ME ANY!!! I do not need it! And if for some reason this turns up in my driveway:

I will shoot the bastards! NO CHOCOLATE... NO CHOCOLATE...

Daughter No 3 has still not had her baby... due ANY DAY NOW.... I am hoping like hell she has baby while we are in Auckland so we can pop down from there to see her and baby.

I'm off to get the kids from school soon, I'm feeling nervous! I hate flying..... If I don't get a chance later to sign off.... I will do it now! Nite nite babes.


  1. Cute blog... you are lucky you can drink so much diet coke without getting sick. The stuff is so full of harmful chemicals and damages your nervous and neurological systems... be careful!

  2. Safe travels have a wonderful holiday. The kids are shocked to say the least. All the best.

  3. Have a great weekend :) The kids will get a real thrill I'm sure when they realise they are the ones going on the plane :)
