End Of The Year "Blues"


Starting the day at 6am is not my thing at all.  Especially when I haven't been able to get to sleep the night before and only really nodded off at 4am. ish.

Yay for good books. 

Not so yay for kids who decide 6am is daytime.

Needless to say this morning I had a Nanna Nap. On the couch while the kids watched tv. Woke up in time to put Monkey in bed.   Nice.

Then this afternoon I did this....

yup.  Racing Stripes. In the hope it will make me feel "Zippier" and able to keep up with the kids these holidays.

Not working so far tho.....  :O.

I dunno why but I can't take good hair pics.  I try.

oh, and Llearch?  "fucken kangaroos!"  :OP

Merry Christmas Y'all....

I was thinking I needed to write a post as it has been a while.....

But I am Le Tired. 

Had family gathering yesterday and it went better than I thought! yay!! My brother from London (one of) turned up - apparently Dad knew he was coming. Super cool to see him!

And then me, Captain Awesome, my Lil Lil Sis, her partner and my Big Lil Brother stayed up after putting the Tribe of Lunatics to bed - throwing a toy plane (which flies in crazy arse directions - we were constantly going over the fence to neighbour's place, climbing on the roof of our place to retrieve it!) balls and a frisbee around. Yes some of these were the kids presents. pffffffffttt  they were in bed.  :OP

Then we sat in the dark for a while, drinking gin.   Chatting till midnight.  How all good days should end I believe.

But then it was up for presents for the kids today. not so cool. 

Now the monsters are alseep again, and I think I will toddle off too. 

Take care of you and yours, probably see ya in the New Year - Captain is off work, the kids are on holiday, time to do stuff with them - which means I don't tend to get online that much!

oh yeah, the hair's now blonde. I will start posting pics again soon too  :O)

ok, so I believe too.....

Mind you when it's 11 pm and all I wanna do is sleep.....

but Monkey has decided that to go to sleep he needs me rightnexttohimandpleasedontmoveunless I decide I    n e e d    m o r e    s p a c e   in the bed thanks mum! 

Oh happy joyful times. 

anyways, at times like these, then I'm just about willing to believe in Unicorns too.

Especially with this argument

He sells it pretty well I think.

Or maybe I just need more sleep. or something....  :O.

Something Had To Give

And I guess it was this.

Things have been kinda crazy lately. Mostly just that I've been crazy tired as much as anything else.  Weird.  I've had 2 naps in the last 2 weeks. 

Now, normally I will *rest* in the afternoons: read, hang out online, do a little low key housework maybe.  But this time I SLEPT.   Pity it didn't help overly much in the grand scheme, I'm still feeling whacked.  And my skin is going to crap - getting eczema in little spots all over.  Need to rest.  Anyone got any ideas on how I do that with Christmas holidays coming up?!? 

anyhoos..... Not helping with the feeling crap is that I badly sprained my ankle nearly 5 weeks ago. I've been seeing a physio. I had to. I never had before, but it just wasn't getting any better after 2 weeks of strapping it myself, icing it, resting it as much as I could etc.... It's still painful, still misshapen, still a little swollen. So I'm seeing a physio, and hopefully we'll figure out what's wrong and fix it. I'm SO FUCKEN OVER being in pain/discomfort all the time.

We don't talk about how I did it - long story short = I'm an idiot.

If you really really reaaaaally wanna hear the tale then you'll have to leave a comment. then maybe I'll tell ya.

On the up side tho, a local music shop found an album I've been looking for for *thinks* hmmmm, 15 years? since I wore out the tape version I had of it.  Been a nice coupla days revisiting music I love and have missed. 

As is per usual with me, I found a track that kinda sums up how life has been lately, so here it is.....  

Hopefully I'll find a way to post more often, coz I have missed it. But things, like I said have been a little busy, and other things have taken priority.....which is right. 

No less annoying tho  :O)
