Bit of this 'n' that:

 ABOVE:  Our gardens have been looking PERFECT for about a week now.  No bark raked off at all.... so we conclude that it's not being done by cats or random small birds.

It's been done by them chickens!  So, if we have a bloody mess again from them, and I can catch them at it and get 'evidence', I will be sending Stew over there to talk to them.

 ABOVE:  I'm totally getting into the Christmas mood.  *smiles*

ABOVE:  Yesterday:  Cows over the neighbour's back fence, which I can see from my patio, meandering friggin chickens, and a hedgehog!

He was on the driveway and we kinda made him roll into a ball.  Poor little bugger, he was shit scared of us I'm sure.

I heard from Griffin last night, all is going well on his camp.  Today is very action packed for him... so I shall keep my fingers crossed everything goes well.  I always worry far too much when kids are on these sorts of trips.

Plans for today?  Meh... don't know.  There's plenty of housework to do, but that's so bloody BORING.  I'm sure I can find something semi-interesting to do... eventually.  *smiles*


My morning has gone a bit like this:

- Keera to kindy
- Order art shit online
- Look at 'housework'
- Lie on couch and go to sleep for an hour or so
- Wake up, panic thinking I've slept too long and Keera is at Kindy waiting for me!

DERRR... it's only 11 am.

Panic over.

Do some bloody housework.  Get Brylee to do some too.

Have 15,000 hot flushes and wish I was in Antarctica!  *** since going off a certain medication, I don't sleep much at night anymore, hence so tired during day now***


How's your's going?

3.15 pm:  And I've been a bit busier this afternoon.
After picking up Keera, we went down to our local Mitre 10 for some rubbing alcohol, so I could put some command hooks on walls etc.
Found something else for summer:

ABOVE:  It's a table top burner, you add a thick citronella gel and light it... then hopefully no mosquitoes?
I hope it works, cos the mozzies are starting to show up now.

Best thing... another thing that was the last in the shop, and I got $35 off the price.  I've been a bit lucky with prices of things lately!

Griffin rang, he's having a blast.  Snowplanet this afternoon, I hope he doesn't get too cold.

Heard from Griffin... Snowplanet WAS cold, but he's fine.  

Quiet evening... ate too much dinner and now feel ill.  I will never learn!
