- I'm pretty sure I had a list of things to FFS about this week. Pregnancy with Millie stole my brain and what little memory recall I had... it came back briefly, but now it's completely gone again. So, FFS.
- Traffic. Dear Tasmania, when I'm doing 80 in the 80 zone with doubles lines and my indicator on because it's night time and I'm going to pull in to my driveway on a highway, it's not smart to overtake me around a corner. I know you needed to get to your home in your dirty great ute approximately 10 seconds earlier than you would have, but seriously? FFS.
- Also, on the main highway to Hobart, the right hand lane is for overtaking. Not moseying. Or squaredancing. FFS.
- I wonder what the road rules say if I refuse to let you merge in front of me when I'm maintaining the recommended 3 second distance from the car in front of me? I'm not game to try this. FFS.
- BN Update: they have been quiet of late. Aside from watching them stack their wood pile one piece at a time without a wheelbarrow, I think they're hibernating for winter. I don't blame them.
- Millie has learned to shake her head for 'No' now. She knows what it means... Now, offering food is blessed with a 'No' headshake, but placing a plate in front of her and leaving her to it means she'll eat. Ok. FFS.
- Toni (Braxton) and David (Hicks) are in full force this week. Oh my god. Toni sings her greatest hits all day, and David lectures about human rights. SQUEEZE. FFS.
- Millie got sick again this week. I point all my fingers at daycare, even more so after I was part of the following conversation:
That afternoon Millie ran a 38oC temperate, woke every two hours overnight but seemed better by morning. I took her the daycare with the instruction to call me if she got any worse. She slept for five hours, but that afternoon came up suddenly with spots all over her face. We wound up at the Dr an hour later, with the diagnosis of a virus, a viral rash and instructions to stay home. So we did. She didn't go to daycare the next day. I kept my sick child away from all the other children.
And it got me to thinking - what happens after #2 is born? Do I need to keep Millie away from daycare until #2 is 6weeks and able to be immunised against Whooping Cough? Oh bloody hell. I don't know.
So really, FFS.
- I also made mention to Daycarer that if the other kids are sick and the parents won't keep them away I don't want to take Millie there to get sicker, and I sure as hell don't want to pay for it either. FFS.
- Then there's the Septic Tank Cowboy. But that's a whole other post. No really.
Shiny Things Friday
|I made my own bias tape this week. After two failed attempts this year, colour me proud.|
|As I was making said bias tape I looked out the window. Neither of these two|
|I made my own fabric labels. COLOUR ME EXCITED!|
|Okay, so I made the labels to cover up a Bias Binding Boo Boo.|
But it looks ace.
|I bought some fabric from Ros' Etsy shop. She is an enabler.|
She is also an absolute sweetheart and I want to make her cups of tea.
|Sick baby before we went to the Dr. It's in Shiny Things because|
I rarely get epic snuggles like this. But look how sad she is. :(
|After M was at the Dr and we got her to bed, Brinner was totally called for.|
Free range eggies, free range bacon, good spinach, great mushrooms,
turkish bread. Yum!
|Front page of Tasmanian Farmer. Good job, guys!|
|May the stripey bumpy force be with you.|
|When we had a Sick Day yesterday M was mildly cheered by dressing up|
and drinking from her new sippy cup.
|M's Plego is from the cheap shop, and you'd never know... besides this.|
|26 Weeks. The Bump is the only perky part of my body anymore.|
|It's Lifeline's Stress Down Day today. We are trying!|
Linking up with Sarah for FFS Friday again. Loving her, as always.
