Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I had a really good mellow birthday- Vic and Byrney came over for some pizza and vino (none for preggo Byrney- wine that is, the pizza she was able to handle) and a nice chat on the sofa. good.mellow.quiet.
This afternoon I headed over to Head Over Heals. I hadn’t been there in over 6 months but since I wanted to go to Unicorn I thought I’d give it a try. I have tried to go a few time but the car park/parking lot is sooooo small that if I can’t find a parking space I end up leaving. I just kept thinking it’s kind of crap so why stress out trying to find a spot. Speaking of crap I must have said as much the last time I tried to go because when we pulled up Squidge says to me- ‘Antz in yer pantz is better mamma this one is crap’ LOL. So I told her we were going to check it out to see if it was still crap. So a happy Squidge told me afterwards that it wasn’t crap any more. Oooh yah my 3 yr old uses the word crap correctly in a sentence. A proud moment for this mama. Now on to the many ways to use the f-bomb.
Anyhoo back to HoH. The last time I went they had just raised the price and the place was falling apart so I decided to give it a bit of a break. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in there today. New paint job, the soft play area mats had been replaced/recovered and they have a ‘disco’!! LOL they announced that toddler aerobics was starting so I herded up Squidge and we climbed to the top of the ‘thingymabob’ to a platform that was covered in canvas. It had a disco ball and everything!!! Squidge was in HOG HEAVEN PEOPLE HOOOOOOOOOOG HEAVEN. Although I did bring my camera I didn’t take any photos. I mean how many times do you want to see Squidge sliding down a ‘super’ slide?!?!
While there I did bump into a couple of mums I met on Monday. They were very nice and we chatted for a bit and they invited me to sit w/ them. I did but felt like I was imposing. I’m sure that is just my own hang up and if it’s not and I really am paranoid oh well. Which reminds me I took a ‘quiz’ on Facebook to see which Friends character I am, turns out I’m ROSS!! I’m shocked and amazed and well, dismayed but this highly scientific result. ROSS!!!
So on to the day before- Wal comes back tomorrow. Can I hear an AMEN people!! Not that Squidge has been difficult this week- she hasn’t. It’s just 7 days on top of the previous week long trips has really worn me out. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t sleep well when he’s gone. Every little bump and noise and I’m away thinking someone is kicking in my door again. The rational park of me thinks that my little old VW is older now and there are newer cars on my road and they’ll try to steal those first and and and… but in the middle of the night it’s difficult to listen to your head and just sleep.
All the Love in the Universe, Ross Lindy
