Runners Up

Thanks for the good vibes for my son's football grand final. Unfortunately they were not the best team on the day. They were beaten by a better side, but they could all hold their heads up at the end of the day for the effort they put in.

The proudest moment of the day for me was seconds after the final whistle blew, I knew my son was disappointed, but he turned straight to the boy he was playing against and held out his hand to say congratulations, then continued around the field and shook hands with every other boy on the opposing team.

I am not sure quite how I managed it, but I somehow did something right with that one ;-) Man I love that kid!

Ah I remember

I am not very good at doing stuff like housework, I hate ironing, folding, washing dishes etc just like most people I guess. But unfortunately as a mother of three and wife of one, and tolerater of a furry friend I have no choice, I have to do it. So in order to take my mind off how much I don't want to do it I usually have some form of entertainment going at the same time, music, dvd, television, or a long conversation on the telephone.

I had been watching Sex & the City on dvd, because I am the only woman in the western world it seems who didn't watch it on the TV the first time around. I tried, but I just couldn't get into it. Gotta tell you I am loving it now, and wondering what was wrong with me when I first watched it, but that's a story for another day.

Anyway the dvd store was all out of S&TC last week, so I had to find something else. My gorgeous, beloved, beautiful sister gave me the first season of Greys Anatomy on dvd for my birthday last year, and of course I have watched it, but it was a while ago, so I slipped the first disk in while I was ironing the other night.

Ah... I remember. That's why I will watch the next season even though, as I commented a while back, I thought I was losing the love for it. I have even found I like Meredith again, because I was really starting to dislike her, And Christina, undiluted and ambitious, before she put herself under Burkes thumb.

Cant wait to do more ironing so I can sink into it again. Um, maybe... some people iron underpants don't they? and sheets, and towels... I'll have the flattest stuff in the neighbourhood lol.

And a quick last note - Number one son's AFL team made the Grand Finals this year, they play this Saturday at 9.15am, so if anyone has some luck to spare, please send it to his team, because they are going to need it! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Those pics I was promising

A few posts back I mentioned pictures, and because I am stuffed today, I will just give you a picture post rather than trying to think of coherent sentences ;-)

Lovingly hand made invitations to my baby's birthday party (slapped together after nearly a bottle of wine, I was lucky they had the right details on them lol)

My "baby" posing with the party food in her brand new party dress (Thanks Grandma!)and a lovely necklace made for her by her big sister. We had fairy bread, cupcakes, popcorn, party pies, sausage rolls, freddo frogs, m and m's, and a yummy chocolate cake with yellow icing - her choice, and these really cool little butterflies made of icing that you can get in the supermarket, made by Greens. YUM. She had the time of her life.

The manchurians pears lining the street where I go for my daily walk. They were all in blossom two weeks ago, now it looks like there is snow on the ground where all the petals have fallen. We have just planted one of these trees in our back yard, I cant wait till it gets as big as these, probably only have to wait about ten years lol.

The path leading back to our house. Its really nice to live in a place that feels like the country, but with all of the good things a city has to offer as well.

Just one of the 133 photos my middle child took of our dog a few weekends ago when she had custody of my camera.

Oh Pooh

Ha ha this was funny. Pooh always irritated me a bit, so does that mean I irritate myself??
