How about a catch up.

  • Jamie and I have both finished the new Harry Potter book. I'm gonna have to re-read the last few chapters, cos I got a bit excited and went too fast.

  • Mark played AFL - the Wallsend Swans - and the team is still hopeless. But the spirit amongst the parents is better. I think we got one goal this week.

  • We went to see "The Simpsons Movie" today. Mark loved it and I nodded off - an expensive way to have a nap. Bart skateboarding nude was hilarious.

  • Mark got a super duper hair cut - a #4 - he hates it, but its growing already.

  • He also got his own digital camera. A 5 megapixel one, its better than mine. A bit cheap and nasty looking, but its his own camera just the same.

  • Jamie has had the 'flu and he's a terrible sick person, sits on top of the heater and asks for cups of tea, he is such an old man.

  • I've had some serious ups and downs with my legs, had some REALLY bad nights despite medication. But I'm perserving.

  • I'm very excited about Big Brother. I wasn't supposed to watch it at all this year, but I'll blame Mark. He loves Friday Night Live, so we started watching that, and then it progressed.... and now I'm HOOKED. I really want Zach to win. But I'm fairly certain he won't. Last night's FNL was the funniest ever. Travis felt sick after being spun around and he crawled so slowly - ok in type that wasn't funny, but by crikey it was.

These photos were from a few days ago (so you can tell that I found my camera, on the computer table under all the renovation stuff).

The gyprock one is where Jamie took off the plaster wall before it was replaced! The green weird looking one is the cupboard doors in that room that we have had to scrape off all of the paint, its a disgusting job and I hate it with a passion, but you need a good work surface before you can start.

Hopefully the sanding will be finished this week and we can paint (and finish it) next weekend.


YIPPEE. My baby is home again. He's taller, more handsome than I remembered. This is a photo of him and a little pressie that I got for him.

Post Titles

Have you noticed for this month.... GOOD, BAD, GOOD, YUCKY.

Must mean today is GOOD. MARK COMES HOME. I'm so happy. I miss that little guy.

Now yucky...

So this is weird.

Worked Saturday late shift. Have to work Sunday morning shift.


Yes that is correct. Not a hint of sleep. I tried. I lay down, I curled up, I sat on the couch, I lay on the couch, I sat in the recliner, I lay in the recliner. Watched a movie that I know off by heart, thinking it would send me sleep... but not this little black duck. I think I'll ask Ainslie to take the team leader role in the morning - what do you reckon??

I took all of my normal medications (and avid readers of this blog - the two of you out there!) will know what they are. But my doc added an antidepressant this week and he said in "rare cases" it can cause hightened anxiety, restlessness, nausea. Well guess what I have all three!!!!!! Should pass in a day or two. Had a funny sensation of minor halucinations too - like a kaleidascope and a big number 5 spinning inside my eyes. Felt good in the day time but this damned night time I hate it. I feel all dizzy and plain yucky and don't know what to do. Its freaking me out a little bit.

Jamie is so wise, I woke him up at 5.30am to ask for some advice and he came up with the most amazing suggestion. I love him so much.

Feeling GOOD

Ahhh, we just got home from watching Harry Potter... what a fabbo film. I loved it, scared in a few spots, but I loved it all the same.

Bring on 21st July for the final book...... what will I do after that last one?????
She just has to keep going, unless Jamie's prediction is right.

I completely SUCK at....

riding a bike.

We bought a bike for me on the weekend after I got completely depressed after shopping for clothes. I don't understand how gears work and my thighs are KILLING me. Do I go up or down in the gears when I go up or down a hill???? Jo and Mark G please help me!!

Today is the first day of my weekend and its only Thursday.

I have lost my digi camera and I don't like that. Do you know where it is?

There is a new scrap shop called "Shop and Crop" near me, on my way home from work no less and its gorgeous and a little bit tiny. I got some new love Elsie papers yesterday and I can't wait to play with them.

Jamie and I are planning on going to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix tonight.

I am going to buy some slippers.

I want to put some Christmas Pressies on layby (it will be my first ever layby) for Marko.

I want to finish cleaning Marko's room in readiness for his return.

Poor little Sheena has croup, but is still a darling.

We are setting up a webhosting business, does anyone know anyone how needs a website hosted, contact me and we can help you out and give you a great deal. No website as yet, but its in the pipeline. **watch this space**

Good inroads`

  • Can see the kitchen table.
  • Eating a healthy lunch.
  • Got my hair tidied up.
  • Booked a weekend away!!
Not bad for a Thursday morning (and I didn't turn the tv on)


Yes, I'm back in the battle against the computer. Very annoying actually. There is so much stuff that needs to be done, and what do I do - blog surf. Not very educational, not really a good use of my time, but that is what I do.

Woke up with Jamie at 5am... then didn't get up to 8.30, felt very decadent. Blog surfed for about an hour, now I'm going to do some housework and then get my hair trimmed.

Then off to work for day 7 of my 8 day stretch. Working tonight with the two new graduates Rachel and Brad, they are both fantastic (and maybe a little nervous still) so should be a good night.

We are having gale force winds *again*, the back room windows are rattling, but the sun is out.
Have to put out some towels, should be dry by the time I get to work.

Off to tidy - first step - kitchen table.... I wonder what it looks like???
