Listening… to an old CD that I made before my babies were born – some of the tracks include Eye of the Tiger, Buffalo Soldier and What’s love got to do with it? Also been enjoying listening to Amy Winehouse, Lee Dorsey and Dinah Washington.
Watching… Offspring– really really enjoying this Sunday night tv show. Didn’t watch any Commonwealth Games at all… not one event or ceremony. I’m not sure why. I used to watch stuff like that but these days I’m just not interested.
Sewing… from the WIP box. The aim of the game has been to finish things! Winter coat finished, refashioned pillowcase dress and a couple of repairs. I didn’t achieve as much as I would have liked to this month. Will just have to keep plugging away at it.
Crocheting… colourful bunting and stars. Grannies, grannies, grannies. OMG – it has been all about the grannies. I’m close to being totally over it.
Playing… with water. The children have started running over the sprinkler of an evening rather than having a bath. They love it! Also been playing lots of hide and seek – a family favourite without a doubt.
Developing… Mr. 3’s drawings are really coming along, just this morning he drew a picture for me of our family climbing a tree. I could see it. So many kinds of wonderful. Ms. M’s sense of humour is being revealed day by day. She enjoys clowning around so much – she completely cracks me up. “Me too” is her catch phrase and she consistently mimics her old brother. Just today Mr. 3 accidentally dripped some custard on his leg while having some sweets and so she had to drip custard on her leg also – “me too!”
Surviving… my partner’s parents visiting from interstate. So stressful. He is not particularly close to them and in the past they’ve let him know that they’re certainly not my greatest fans. Strange having to play “nice” with people who don’t like you – it was worth it for my children who both had a wonderful time. Exhausting but worth it.
