It’s about time I know but….

I finally have three copies of my divorce paperwork in an envelope, the fee waiver form completed, copy of the marriage cert all ready to go…just have to pop down to the cop shop and have it signed then copy the signed page twice and my pension card and then I am going to post it TODAY! and yes Sue taking your parcel with me too.

edited to add….all ready to go now in envelope with stamps except for one minor problem…pension card is not in purse…suspect that Stephen may still have it from when he bought my train ticket the other day…hope that is the case or will have to wait for it to be reissued…bugger

edited again to add…confirmed Stephen still  has pension card so will have it copied and be able to send it off by Monday…Sue your parcel is in the post!

The zoo!

Well we did it! We went to the zoo on the train. Me and Stephen with my 3 kids plus his nephew so two adults and 4 boys aged 6,5,4 & 2! They were pretty good all day and it was proof that once you have three kids adding one more really doesn’t make it any harder!  We had a great day despite the heat.  We got home quite late and ended up with me bathing the 4 of them quickly while Stephen went out for fish and chips then dinner and the extra was picked up and the others in bed quite late at 8.30 but were out like lights!

Brett was VERY hard to get up this morning but hopefully tomorrow will have him back to normal.

Stephen is coming for dinner again tomorrow – looks like it might become a regular Wednesday thing – dinner and then a movie while the kids are in bed…sounds good to me! What’s on the menu this time you ask…smoked chicken and sun-dried tomato risotto with baby spinach….topped with a bit of shaved fresh parmasan cheese….YUM!

I got to see TAM woohoo!

So Tam finally made it down to Melbourne and the plan was for me to meet her in town yesterday afternoon and we would do ‘something’. Very specific plan I know!  So then we changed it – Tam came out on the train to Werribee and I took her down to A Scrappe Angels Heaven – the poor girl was a bit overwhelmed!  Apparently when I said it was a BIG store the description was lacking and BLOODY HUGE was a bit closer to the truth…

Then we went shopping (similar reaction to the local shopping plaza actually)…I picked up a bargain pair of cropped pants for $5 and Tam got some stuff she needed then dinner at Nandos. Tam and I have over the years been a bit amazed at how alike we think but we both stood back looking at the menu and then proceeded to order exactly the same thing (except for the coke zero/diet coke)!

Then we came back to my place and instead of being out on the town we spent the evening cleaning my scraproom and trying (unsuccessfully) to get my wireless router to talk to my modem. But you know what – we didn’t need to be out on the town to have fun…and I discovered my scraproom is pretty darn BIG when you move the furniture around a little and clear the floor!

No pictures as Tam got some on her Camera but it wouldn’t talk to my computer so I have to wait.

So best I get myself organised as I am meant to be cleaning my room right now.

Stephen is coming over later to tackle the backyard and then he is taking me and the kids to the zoo on the train!

a change of perspective

the scary thing is just how quickly it has all happened. Probably only 4-5 weeks ago I was saying that really where on earth was I even going to MEET a single man let alone a nice one…and even then well is he going to be interested in ME? (ok ok I know you are all going to yell at me for being so mean to myself – self esteem in that area of my life has not been so high in the past)….I went to a kids bday party and well…everything changed…my outlook on life is different…my future is a lot more uncertain – and yet brighter too and it’s not quite like ‘stop the world I wanna get off’ because well I’m enjoying the ride but at the same time my head is spinning…

I have tried to fill the void in my life with work and stuff and was doing ok til the bugger smiled at me. But he just reminded me of something that I’ve always known…that I do want a man in my life, not just for now, for today, for fun…someone to grow old with. Despite the disaster of my previous marriage (although not totally as it did result in three beautiful boys) I still believe in (or at least hope for) the whole fairytale. I want to fall in love with a knight in shining armour and live happily ever after.

Recently -a few months ago – I heard myself saying that If I found the right man I could actually have one more child…I have it in me to have one more…and I was a bit stunned at myself right then too!  And of course I happened to say that to a group of girls at the party (including Stephen’s mum)!  But now of course that comes up and despite only having seen each other a few times we have already discussed the whole kid thing and its a bit weird (maybe it is just because we are older and don’t have ‘forever’) but I know that if we stay together then we might just have to buy that Kombi the kids are so wishing for before too many years have gone by and yet wow it’s early days and I wonder that we even had that discussion!

And so back to feeling like a 15 year old and running to get the phone when it rings…back to blushing and smiling when the school mum’s make comments…trying to be patient and take it slow but you know what – I always did suck at waiting.
