First post for the new year....
Have been a little busy. Have been working and just general life really.
Had the crapest if thats a word day today. Work was great got to work in a different department and learnt some new stuff that was very useful. I like learning new things. I think I am just a little out of control and need to bring myself back to center. With the school holidays and trying to make sure everyone has some where to go and something to do etc. Jake has been pushing my buttons big time. He prefers to stay home than go to Gran's or Nannas. Thats ok he just plays PC PS2 or whatever. He has become very social and has lots of mates which is great but they always want to either be here (in our small house) or Jake wants me to run him here or there. in the last week here is a sample... New Years Eve he has his cousin stay over as the cousin would prefer to stay here than go with his parents to a party. He ended up staying until Wednesday. They wanted to go to the local pool right when I was helping Col do some stuff and 2 hours before tea. I dropped everything gave then the $$$ and took them to be told the pool shut at 6 and could I pick them up then. Jake has one night home moaning he is bored... Thursday comes.... I get Can Brad come over to sleep tonight... I would rather not have sleep overs when I have to get up and go to work the next day but agreed. Brad turns up while we are eating dinner. the par then inform me they would like to go to Knox with me this morning so they can just look about. I agree. They then said they would get the bus home. Jake hit me up for $$$ for a new jumper (he did need one so I agreed) then I find out they have called Nanna to pick them up who took them back to her house for lunch then ran them home here after.THEN they ask if Jake can go stay at Brads. OK. Jake cant go until after 6 as Brads folks wont be home till then. Jake makes an early tea so he can go ASAP. Jake starts to ride to Brads gets half way and comes back cause he had a call that he cant stay unless he can go with them to the pictures tomorrow. so either had to stay home OR get $$$ for movies. I direct deposited cash into his account and sent him on his way. THEN he says he will be late and can I drive him half way and he would ride the rest. As we are getting ready to go AJ drops his bowl of noodles! Noodles and noodle juice all over the floor not to mention the broken bowl ARGGHHHH I get Jake to meeting place to meet Brad. They ride off ;)
come home noodles and bowl clean up on isle 12 then grumpy mummy too stressed to do much else...NOW if I still have you reading at this point get this! Our new tent came today so we have also nutted the chinglish out to erect that it took 2 hours and we were ready to put a match to it! but its all good. it look great and very big so tickled at my $22. ebay bargain.
Now apart from all this... Wednesday AJ ad Shan went to mums while I worked so had to get them there mega early so I wasnt late. Thursday AJ went to Nannas and Shan went to a friends so had to leave mega early to drive what felt like a million k's to deliver everyone. Then today Aj went to mums and Shan went there but was collected to go to a friends. Now just remember I had to collect them all from there various places in the afternoons too. Apart from AJ yesterday Col did that on his way home.
in there I also managed the food shopping (well most of it I still need to go get meat) and I remembered to pay the bills!
tomorrow I have Jake and Brad back to sleep in the new tent and heaven knows what other mates???? I also need to get that meat and perhaps some fresh vegies.
I am now tired and worn out and need a nap and think I should have a holiday....
It is 10:53pm and I am about to hang a load of washing (3rd for the night) so it will be all dry in the morning and I dont have to hang it out in the sun and get too hot :)
Those are my ramblings for today and I have had my rant.
Once again Happy NEW Year.
