WOW!!!! COFFEE SLUT IS JUST AMAZING!

I entered a wee competition of Coffee Slut's... to win a couple of things, including a book. I thought... well I NEVER win anything, but I will enter anyway.. I liked the book!

AND I WON! And that gorgeous woman added a few more things to the parcel and sent it to me.... AND the poor bugger had to pay OVER $60 to get it to me!

THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH Chick! Your parcel arrived yesterday... and it made me and the kids (AND Teddy) smile so much.

































ABOVE: Teddy checking out the parcel... the kids showing off some of the contents... I just LOVED the blue shopping bags... Coffee Slut knows me so well! *smiles* I do believe I am now collecting shopping bags! They are neat.
ABOVE: a very pretty brooch...


ABOVE: The 'Haul'! There was:
Market (shopping) bags, Butterfly brooch, 3 pair of socks, A Car Freshner, An Extreme Sudoku Book, The Book!, 2 Magnetic Pens, Huge Bag of Lollies for the kids, Silly Putty for the kids, Rawhide Bone for Teddy... and a gorgeous NAUTICAL THEMED Incense burner with tealights and scented candles. DIDN'T I DO WELL?

And didn't Coffee Slut just make my day!


OH... AND SHE MADE TEDDY'S DAY TOO! He LOVED that bone.

Once I have walked the kids to school I am coming home and doing the housework... then I've got a lady visiting.... I've never met her before. Our doctor has hooked me up with a 'Diet Buddy'... and so she's coming over for morning tea. Hope it goes well. I am supposed to help her lose weight by encouraging her... and visa versa. Hmmmmm. We will see how that goes eh?

Ha Ha! I've been yakking with a lovely woman in Ireland... who found me via the blogs.... and last night we had quite a few email exchanges... and I ended up calling her a TWIT.. well she called me a 'wise guy' first! Anyway, she has decided I NEED an Irish Magical Charm to keep me and Roxy out of harm's way!

So she's finding 'a very potent one' and sending it to me. Awwwww ain't that so sweet?

Oh and she decided to bestow an Irish Name on me too... from now on she's calling me "Keeley" which means "Beautiful" in Gaelic... I can live with that thanks! *smiles* Now apparently I'm an IRISH LASSIE.

ONWARD ....
Morning Tea: went really well! She was a lovely girl, we yakked for over an hour and half. She even brought me a gift! Shit, I'm popular and she doesn't even know me! LOL!
We are going to get together once a week from now on.
I have been stuck at home ALL DAY...and me phone hasn't stopped ringing! It has been just amazing, I honest-to-god have NOT been able to get off it, and I have made no calls myself! It's manic around here I tell ya!
And shit! I have to go and get the kids from school..... yikes will have to run now...
*** huffing and puffing***... RUNNING is not good for me! But I got there on time... JUST. And I have fielded 3 more friggin phone calls and numerous texts in the past hour... bloody hell I'm popular today.
AND My latest Tupperware order just arrived too! Sheesh, I'm flooded with gifts and parcels today. Makes me smile.
AND my MUM got FANTASTIC news today!!! She had cancer in 2000.. major operation/chemotherapy etc... and today she got the FINAL ALL CLEAR... she does not have one drop of cancer in her ANYWHERE. We are soooo soooo relieved. And they don't want to see her again..EVER! No more nasty invasive yearly tests for her. I'm so happy for her.
Could today get any better? I don't think so.
End of Day: It has been a hectic day... for my ears! If either phone rings or texts me again I am going to scream! nite nite.

    Hi Chris...wow you have had a few days of it..poor you and Roxy. Seems to be the "season" for it because Laura actually wrote off her car on the Desert Road a week before her birthday (end of may, birthday 4 June)..thankfully she was okay - it was just total inexperience and she wasn't speeding or anything, in fact she was doing approx. 40kms going into one of the Sisters. Kids, no wonder I had to colour the greys yesterday!! Try to keep smiling through the shit :-) Talk to you soon I hope. Michele xxx

    Chris, thought you might enjoy this! Michele

    FINALLY -
    Someone say's it like it REALLY is!


    BITCHOLOGY

    When I stand up for myself and my beliefs,
    they call me a bitch.

    When I stand up for those I love,
    they call me a bitch.

    When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts
    or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.

    Being a bitch means I won't
    compromise what's in my heart.

    It means I live my life MY way.
    It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.

    When I refuse to tolerate injustice and
    speak against it, I am defined as a bitch.

    The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.

    It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who
    I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think I 'should' be.

    I am outspoken, opinionated and determined. I want what I want and
    there is nothing wrong with that!

    So try to stomp on me, just try to douse my inner flame, try to
    squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me. You won't succeed.

    And if that makes me a bitch ,so be it. I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

    B - Babe
    I - In
    T - Total
    C - Control of
    H - Herself

    B = Beautiful
    I = Intelligent
    T = Talented
    C = Charming
    H = Hell of a Woman

    B = Beautiful
    I = Individual
    T = That
    C = Can
    H = Handle 'anything'

  5. I am starting to believe you live a rather charmed life, Keely! Good for you!

    I hope your morning tea goes well, it's always nice to meet new people who can encourage you (hope she's not one to feel sorry for herself though, can't stand that!).

    Enjoy and good luck! xxx
