First up for today, I have the electrician coming back to fix one of the light switches.  They replaced it but it's still not working.  I'm sure I won't get charged for it.  Thankfully.

Next: We are attending a funeral this afternoon.  Kelly's partner's Dad died from a heart attack.  Not looking forward to going, I find funerals very hard, having lost both my brothers and Dad in tragic circumstances.  But, sometimes ya just have to do these things.

And there's a couple of other things happening today, which I am not going to discuss here at all.  One is a timing sensitive thing, the other is troubling, but hopefully will turn out OK.

You know what that means.

So, it is going to be a busy day.  Some stress, but nothing I'm not sorta used to.  *sigh*
DAYS. OF. OUR. LIVES.  Yep yep yep.


4.01 pm:  Well I did say I'd be busy today eh?
 The electrician arrived 2 hours late. Slight Grrrr.

Then Stew got home and we grabbed a quick sandwich each before going to the funeral.
It wasn't as hard as I though it would be.  I usually get all choked up at funerals, but this time I didn't.  Quite a relief really as we will be going to another one in the foreseeable future sadly.

After the funeral, Stew went back to work and I went into town to get a few things.
Home just in time to open the house for Griffin, home from school.

I head out again in an hour to pick Brylee up from school, she's at Drama rehearsal.

Had good news from across the ditch today.  All is well.  Pepsi readers will know what that means.  Now I can relax.  Felt like I was holding my breath all day!

Stew has gone out for KFC... cos I just feel exhausted.  Was a bit stressed out last night/today.

Things can now get back to normal.  What am I saying?  WTF is normal around here?  OK... some days are normal... even boring!
Have 6 kids + 2 ... ahh nah, I don't recommend it.

This evening has been uneventful... which is perfectly normal.  Thank goodness.  Looking forward to tomorrow.  Day trip ahead.


  1. Condolences to Kelly and her partner. A sad time for them.

  2. Hugs to get you though the day.

  3. Tough day for you. Glad your news was good! x

  4. you always have interesting days on the go, jobs to do and being done! Funerals are hard at any time. Glad there was some good news.
