40 weeks today!

The ticker says I have 0 days left until baby is due...

Thankfully, and as expected, he hasn't chosen today to be his birthday - well, I guess he still could, but I'm really not expecting him to, and after the big day of walking, talking and shopping that I've had, I'd much rather sleep tonight than give birth - Hahahahahaha!

I bought (coz, you know you want to know the details!):

A boppy pillow

A small pink Tupperware bottle (I have the big gray one, but wanted something smaller).

A Bubblebubs AIO

A Bubblebubs "Just Hatched" cover

A Totsbot newborn cover in grey with white stars

A Stinkybotz nappyholder/changemat

A years subscription to the ABA (got my free Pinky McKay "Toddler Tactics" book too)...

A 9 book children's pack of books for $50

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yeah, so my pubic bone is a little tender, LOL... But it already was after shopping at Doncaster yesterday...

So, now I'm *ready* hahaha... Some time, in the next two weeks (hopefully, or this WILL be a November baby afterall), I expect to be holding my little baby... Can't wait, very excited now!

Back onto the raspberry leaf and epo etc. as of tonight...

Ooh, sounds like a FAB shopping trip - I wish I was able to go with you! Can't wait to see the purchases when I see you next, and yeah, baby, anytime you want to make your appearance - Sif is ready!

Excitement! Sounds like a fabulous day of retail therapy and yay to readyness! LMK if the toddler book is worth the buy once you've read it! LOL

Amanda, you´re more than welcome to borrow - I won't read it, rofl! I never read parenting books (that's probably why I'm such a first class parent with perfectly well behaved children who are universally admired around the traps, pmsl!!!)...

I collect books which collect dust, hahahaha... Feel free to save this book from becoming yet another dust collector on the study floor...

PMSL! Sounds as bad as me... I do HAVE the Sears series. They look really nifty on top of La's wardrobe with the other decorativey bits. ~_~' One of these days I might actually crack them open too...

Snerk... I think well behaved kids are an urban myth. Surely there is no such thing as a 2-3 year old who doesn't tantrum over everything, stays with you, sits when/where told instead of bouncing around like a mexican jumping bean, doesn't grab every single freaking item off the shelf repeatedly and otherwise behaves in ways that don't earn glances from the general public indicating they wonder why you've brought it out without a straightjacket....

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
