Did someone say Holiday?


The insanity that saw me taking the kids to the Royal Melbourne Show the day after we'd been to the Thomas Spectacular continues. It was all birthday party party party over the weekend, then Mother's Group at our place Monday. Tuesday, Cherub went to creche whilst I tried to stay on top of the domestic side of things (pumpkin soup, more sourdough and washing. Lots of washing) and the Climber and the Next-door children amused themselves around me. Yesterday the Climber and Next-door-Boy went to a Lego afternoon workshop at the Lego Educational Centre, while I tried to shop for Fixit's impending birthday. Today and Friday the Climber is off all day learning soccer at a Fun Football Session. Friday night we have a good friend's 40th, then Saturday and Sunday we're out to Healesville for Fixit's sister's wedding. Nell is staying at our house with the kids, under strict instructions to be as lazy as possible. Monday is Fixit's birthday. I've canceled the Kid Tap Class for this week, it was either that or a melt-down.

Poor Climber will be going back to school for a chill-out.

Meanwhile, Cherub and I went for a mother-child blogmeet at H&B's house (saw the lovely house, met the lovely baby) with Lazy Cow and her lovely blonde blue-eyed brood. H&B claims to not be much of a hostess but she looked after us in style and Master C did a fine job sharing his toys. A really nice morning.

    Another delusion you've shattered, Stomper.

  7. Yawn. Have to have a lie down now. (And typing the word "yawn" really did make me yawn). After the "holidays" you can have a true holiday?

  9. Actually, being out of the house may very well be preferable to having feral children (mine) trashing the place and screeching constantly.
    I have SEVERE garden envy after yesterday.

  10. Perth's nice - I could probably live there, and yes, that's an ELC rocket ship ( it's really cool, but I didn't pay for it - i'm too tightie whitie )

    Thanks for yesterday - it was lovely to have well-behaved playmates that didn't trash the place ... and LC, I cannot believe your children are anything less than perfect. Feral ! - hardly !

    Blogger raise good Babies.
    That's all I can say.
