Lovely weekend down at the farm although a bit manic at times with all of us and now 2 walking children!! God knows what it will be like when my sisters baby arrives!! Drives my Dad a bit mad I think! He prefers them one on one so took Matilda out everyday to shift sheep etc. He also took her on a big walk up to the top of the hills at the back of the farm where my brothers ahses are scattered to introduce her. I had a horribly sinus-y thing which made me feel a bit crap and wanted to hide away!! My brother brought round his new girl friend who is lovely - she's a keeper!! I always worry a bit as he is unable to have children and I hope it never becomes a deciding factor for relationships. Very tough as when do you bring that up?!
Anyway back to work today and an overnight trip this Wed. Feels like endless trips recently but should calm down after this week. Definitely feeling cold here now though so winter is on its way. Boo! Guess it had to happen sometime though! Need t get some warmer clothes to wear in my 'office' as there's no heater!!
Yep thats the one TTid - they are so sweet together! Our 'zoo' is a small place that has some farm animals, monkeys, parrots, otters and meercats. Its completely enclosed with a playground in the middle so kids can run wild but not escape - best part - completely free!!! We go there weekly!
Great to hear explosion has hepled Camlo!! Shame some people need a rocket to do something but hopefully it has cleared the air and the black clouds are receeding!!
Grrrr Ttid that is so annoying/incompetent of them and worse that externally it looks like you guys! I would be steaming!!
New slow cooker recipe booked arrived in the post today - some really yum loking recipes in their (rather than the horrible ones in my current book!). Also discovered via FB today that its my friends birthday today (only kown her a year). Saw her at daycare this morning and all afternoon yesterday and she kept it quiet so we have planned to go to the zoo this afternoon with another friend and are bringing a few birthday treats to eat as a surprise!! Her son is just a bit younger than M and they adore each other. They walked ahead of us along a path yesterday holding hands (22 months first boyfriend!) and it was so sweet - not least because they couldn't work out how to hold hands to start with!
Right best get washing out, scones made and oh yeah a bit of work done before pickup time!
Oh EF you need a hug!!! And possibly some plates to smash!!!!
Grrr to the annoying family members - I would never expose an older parent who hadn't had CP. Its horrible in adults! I'm guessing your mum would never say no to them either. How many weeks are you now? As for the sore throat - probably ice cream is the only solution there!!!
Just spent ages on the phone with out internet provider trying to get wireless back up and running. To his credit he was very patient and got it sorted but has meant I have done no work yet and am now thoroughly distracted!!
Big well done Camlo for tackling the source of your stress head on (so much easier to hide from it and complain!) and great to see you have made some headway. Not so good to hear about backpain though - so awful!! I hope it eases soon!!
Yuck to your stress T-tid!! These things have a funny way of working themselves out in the end - doesn't help when you are in the thick of it though!
Well done on your race Minks - you sound very positive even if it wasn't the result you were after which is great!
Umm who else? Hugs to RF - so much sadness for one family.
I survived my weekend work trip to Auckland. Conference was good but was constantly aware that I would rather have eben elsewhere! M had a wonderful time on the farm (as usual) and is totally obsessed with my dad at the moment!! Managed to catch up briefly with my sister which was nice. She is pregnant again (Rose is one this weekend). Excited for her but must admit to being jealous also. If I had my way I would be preg or trying to get preg now but its just not the right time for us yet. However we are making positive steps regarding hubbies career cange which is exciting!! He has just been accepted onto a welding course which will be the start of a whole new career. He is thrilled to have found something else he wants to do. The course starts in July and rund til Nov, then he would continue to study but hopefully get a job first and they fund. Will be a very tight few months on one (small) income but we will manage and the sacrafice will be worth it in the end for a happier hubby! Also the starting salary is better than what he is on now as a head chef!! Lots of career opportunities as well. SO will just have to wait until end of this year/early next year to start trying (fingers crossed).
Back down to the farm this weekend for my niece's first birthday. I have a long weekend too which will be nice. Matilda will think its heaven to be back there agin so soon!
