Kids playing nicely.... Teddy trying so hard to be a part of it... even though he is sooooo not allowed the Lego!

It's New Year's Eve... and we have NO plans, none whatsoever. *sigh*.

Probably watch TV on me own like last night... I didn't want to watch sport so Stew (the prick) sat in the family room on his own... left me to it.. like I'm not literally on my own most days (not counting bloody kids)? Oh well... whatever.

OBVIOUSLY I'm not in the best of moods! Might go take it out on the friggin pantry....


Did anyone think I was going to CLEAN the pantry? Are you nuts? I meant raid it.. stuff me face... whatever I could find! BUT I didn't... I went grocery shopping instead. WHAT FUN that was... not.

End of Day: it's still early but I am going to sign off for this year. Yew Year's Eve is always a time I reflect on missing family... weird but true. I think of all the New Years Parties my brothers have missed out on... for my little brother... he's missed out on 10 and my big brother... 25! It doesn't seem that long ago that they both left us so suddenly.. and it still sucks and makes me sad. So, tonight I will remember them... and then move on to a new year.... a year I hope will be full of losses.... kilo losses! No New Year Resolutions as such... but some wishful notions!



  1. Men and sport aye drives me up the wall or in my case man and stupid computer games that he plays from the time he gets home till midnight...oh well such is life....Have a good new years :)

  2. have a very happy healthy new year and keep the blogs coming please.

  3. Little Teddy is adorable! And so soft looking :-)

    Hope your New Year is great (despite sports on tv-- I hate that too).

    Hang in there.

  4. Hi

    Happy new year to you - hope all your probelms are small ones in 2010


  5. Hi Chris,

    Step away from the pantry!!!!!! Oh good you have.

    Have a very happy New Year, Chris. May all your wishes and desires come true in 2010.


  6. Good girl for staying away from the pantry! Like the new look blog--looks very reflective, perfect for new year's eve, I guess. You must miss your brothers so much, of course you are thinking of them at this time of year.

    Chris I have enjoyed "meeting" you this year. I wish you all the very best for 2010.
