Ok so I bit the bullet and made a phonecall ….got messagebank….
but then he called back….
2hrs or so later we are going to see each other on the weekend…and yes I’m smiling
Ever since Corey discovered the power behind the words ‘no cuddle’ around Christmas time in Adelaide cuddles have been very thin on the ground. He has not liked to hand them out even after a full day of daycare….Owen has been having major tanty’s over the lack of cuddles too.
I am happy to announce that cuddles are back and the ‘no cuddle’ appears to have vanished…for now anyway….*touch wood* just enjoying my big Corey Cuddles again!
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet….right?
and so the ‘man’ saga continues….I have been trying to move on with getting my life more organised. The whole flirting bit caught me by surprise the other week. So the idea was to wait and see what happened and in the meantime to start to get control of the housework the new work hours the school, kinder, daycare, swimming, kids at Daddy’s routine. The idea being that IF I was to ever let a man into my life it might be good to have my life organised enough to actually allow some time for said man. Around that I seem to have made some weekend plans here and thereabouts….and then just when I thought I had pushed things out of my mind I got a call from a friend….who advised me that her brother Stephen had been asking for my number. So I did say to let him know that that was ok for him to have it…and now back to waiting again…with a smile and a warm fuzzy lol…but really the name the name the name…..(my brother is Stephen and my ex is Steven)….has me wondering if it is a good idea to go down that path at all….and yet…really…what’s in a name….A man by any other name….
life is interesting…
You can check out the details at Paperific.
This is the first time they have been at Caufield but it is a great venue so it should be a lot of fun.
I will be there as Top50 has a stand in the retail section just to help promote the site to anyone who has yet to hear about it. Paperific is always loads of fun and now there are to be TWO shows in 2008 I’m sure it will be even more exciting. Hope to see you there.
At long last girls I have gotten around to doing the instructions for you. They are available for looking/downloading in the side bar! Have fun and if you make one I would love for you to post a comment with a link to a picture if you can!
This morning I struggled with the whole get dressed and ready and get out. And while I was arguing with Brett to get him to get dressed and getting myself organised the most amazing thing happened. My favourite big 6yr old not only got dressed for school, he got himself some breakfast…but not just for him – he got 3 bowls of cocoa pops and they all sat at the big table and ate and when I finally managed to get myself dressed and come out there they were all sitting nicely at the table and telling me finished but still hungry…so we all had a banana and got out to daycare/school on time…..
he has been amazing since school started!
ok so I managed to get out of bed and organised for school and we walked again. Kids are starting to assume we are walking (as opposed to driving) which is great.
I had managed to rearrange Brett’s swimming lesson to Thursday mornings so I could stay for assemblies and parents meetings – sadly that meant leaving Owen 5-10min before the bell at school on Thursdays but meant I could stay Mondays…..and today was a good day to stay as Owen got an award for ‘listening really well to our stories’. Now I know that sounds pretty ‘lame’ perhaps but Owen is NOT a good listener so it is a pretty big deal hear!
We got home and the little boys played nice for a while then at lunch time we had some pies…went to put the sauce away after and found that Brett already had! really …without being asked! It’s a miracle – I know small things but it is using his initiative and being helpful!
Next Corey has been on a serious ‘no cuddle’ binge…I mean really seriously a lack of cuddles from that cheeky little monster….well Brett smothered me in cuddles after lunch til Corey couldn’t resist anymore and joined in!
So then I put Corey to bed and he napped with minimal argument (we are moving his nap time from 2pm to 12.30ish to allow a nap before school pick up – we need to leave by 10 to 3). Then Brett and I played the ‘rush hour’ game. Its a kids version and it is for 6-8 yr olds and he got through so many of them he only has the last 10 (of 40) to go…and they get harder as they go along….his thinking and reasoning is good – had to stop because after an hour or so (wow a whole hour) his attention span was slipping and he was getting silly.
fast forward to cooking dinner – kids were out of my hair and not fighting – mostly kinda ate without too much moaning….didn’t fight the no dessert ruling as they didn’t eat all their dinner – the vegie war!
Then get a phonecall from swimming – they are opening up an 11am class on Thursdays – unreal I can be at swimming and still drop the boy and be there when the bell goes!
so how good is my day going….
Owen rings Granma to tell her about his award – and he actually talks and she mostly understands, Brett has a quick chat and then Corey too…then I get on……Mum is glad to hear form me she has just got news
YOGI’s pathology report came back ALL CLEAR – ie no sign of Cancer YAY and he is coming home on Wednesday! Sue is over the moon!
so happy day oh happy day……
