The countdowns started.

Well I’m wide awake at 6:05am on a Saturday.

Was a huge afternoon & night yesterday, Miss Yr10’s Formal.
She & her friends all looked stunning.

It’s now 12 hrs until Miss 12’s Disco Party!!
I’m pretty much organised just the food set up.
She’s so excited.

But I actually hate this time. The lead up to the event.
I double think everything.
Do we have enough food.
Will they have fun.
Is everything tidy. Etc…..

I have to keep telling myself that “They’re 12 year olds. Give them food, music & balloons. They’re going to have a ball.”
I hope. Wish Me Luck!!

I’m the same the day before a holiday, which we have a Huge one coming up in October so wish me luck for that too.

Party Prep

This week our Middle Miss is turning 12.

Next Saturday she’s having a Disco Party with about 20 Tweens.

I’m not stressing about the actual party as they’re a great bunch of kids.
It’s the Preparation that’s stressing me. Well the time I have to do it.

Between now & Saturday @6.30pm there’s a long list of other events going on.– hosting a committee meeting,
–sports training & 1st final game Saturday @2pm
–year 10 formal is Friday night so Miss 16 has a list of her own prep, waxing, tan, hair makeup etc…
–work
— Actual birthday is Thursday, so family dinner.

Birthday stuff to organise is Cake, more decorations, food, games & prizes.
I’m planning on shopping & cooking Monday with Tuesday arvo free if I need more time.

Hubby is tidying up Garage now!! And I’m about to do house cleanup which will no doubt need re-doing on Saturday.

Writing it out actually makes it less daunting.

I think I need to go old school & write lists again.
Might investigate Bullet Journalling, next week when Birthday is over.

Feeling like a Grown Up.

After another busy week I was on the couch at 6.30pm in my pj’s. I’d actually been in them since 4.30. Well it was Friday night.

Anyway I get the text to see if I want to go for drinks with the Girls.
My 1st thought was Better Homes & Gardens is on soon!!!
But I get up, get dressed & go out.

Drinks with the Girls is like therapy.
We laughed, vented & praised//bagged our lives.

So I wake up this morning to another Weekend filled with sports & kids social activities but I feel relaxed & refreshed.

Thanks girls you help me keep it together. Luv you all to bits 😘

I hope everyone has their own support group like I do.

Humans V’s Animals

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
― George Orwell, Animal Farm
Not so on this house.

The animals are out numbering us.

Our 2 rabbits (which we thought were both girls, silly mistake) have started reproducing.
They were!! Free range in our back yard.
6 days ago we found 4 baby Bunnies we think they’re 3-4 weeks old.
We’ve since put them & mum in an enclosure. Without Dad.
But as Rabbits do, Mum delivered another litter 2 days ago another 5.

So I’ve been researching rabbit life.
OMGosh!!! They have 2 Uteruses so can carry 2 litters at once.
They can be pregnant again days after delivery.
So hopefully these are the only 2. We’ll know after 28 days.

Poor Bunny Mumma needs a rest. 🐰

As clear as mud!

I think I’m pretty computer/Ipad savvy But this doing my head in. Maybe I’m over complicating it.

At first it’s telling me to download Word Press then 5 “Easy” steps to connect to servers etc????!!!!

I think I’ve now worked out I can just login & go.

So hopefully this is going to work.

I must remember to Just Breathe 

Where to start?????

I’m not sure what I’m doing but I’m going to work it out eventually.
I am an avid researcher. I research & plan all big adventures before I begin, But I haven’t this time. Hopefully I’ll learn as I go. Fingers crossed.
