Damn Cups of Tea

So annoyed, littlest girl bumped my arm while I was moving a cup of tea and of course it landed all over my keyboard and now I have to change the way I type so that when I use my shift key I don't get stuck TYPING IN CAPITALS FOR TOO LONG, or needing something to manually lift the shift button.

Other than that, went to the Ballet today to see 'A Christmas Carol' and it was awesome. I had such a good time. Our studio took a bunch of littlies and let them loose, it was so cute.

Now I need to go to bed and get some sleep before work tomorrow.

On a Roll

Look at that, three posts I three days.

Today has been kind of strange. Some good and some just bleagh, nothing bad though.

So have inherited a cat for a few weeks while cat's parents su in Bali.

I actually feel like I have accomplished stuff today.

It's November Already!!

We are into the second to last month of the year and all those things that were on my to do list..........


I really need to get off my backside and actually start crossing things off, which would be great if when I crossed something off it stayed off instead of being replaced by three other things.

I did go and help out a friend last week with her special needs swimming class (I teach swimming for a living). It brought back to me why I do what I do and what I love most about it - the satisfaction of seeing someone not many people (beyond their parents and those who help them on a daily basis), achieve something that they never thought they could. I had a smile on my face all day.

Today was spent in my other home - the dance studio. I am so proud of my big girl and the responsibility that she has taken on to help her dance teacher. There have been some wonderful life lessons there for her and she is a better person because of them.

Enough rambling, it's almost midnight here and I need to get some sleep.

Life and other stuff.....or not

WOW, all the kids are back to what they do best, which is make me chief bottle washer and taxi driver while they live the high life!

I feel like a hamster running on it's wheel. I'm super busy, but doing the same things all the time. How is this my life? Oh, wait a minute, I chose it - hindsight is a wonderful thing. I love all my kids, but the occasional day off would be nice. Not gonna happen any time soon though.

On top of all of that, I have been carrying a shoulder injury since last September, and while it's better, it's still not 100% and the physio says it probably won't be for at least another 6 - 12 weeks.

Anyway, short and sweet, if anyone's interested that's great, if not just skip over it.

New Year (Both Types)

Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to the Year of the Horse as well.

I never notice how long it is between posts (slack cow that I am), but I can't believe that I haven't told you about December!

After I finished making those lovely costumes from the previous post, I watched 5, count them 5

After I finished making those lovely costumes from the previous post, I watched 5, count them <b>5<b<b></b>> performances of Mary Poppins with some lovely jazz variety pieces attached. $ of them I watched from the back and 1 from the front. I am so proud of all the students at my girls dance studio. They did a fantastic job and from all the feedback everyone enjoyed the show. That's the whole point, right?

Christmas was quiet with just us and the kids. Then New Year was even quieter (I'm such a nana)! Now we are back into the swing of things. School goes back next week and then all the extra curriculars start the week after that. I think my life as I know it runs on dancing for the foreseeable future with my older girl getting ready to go dance on stage in Disneyland. Exciting for her, but lots of hard work and time at the studio.

So, uniforms are mostly ready, books are purchased, stationary has arrived and if I could just get this months old shoulder injury to heal all would be well with the world.

Hope everyone else had a great Christmas and wonderful New Year. Who knows, maybe this year I will post more :)

That Time Again

It's that time of year again, when things become super hectic as the kids get ready for their dance show and the end of the school year.

Dance this year is Mary Poppins, but it is also lots of practice time for the big girl and she has been selected for a group who will be performing on stage at Disneyland in April next year. So, practice, practice, practice. Then fundraise, fundraise, fundraise!!!! Can I win the lottery please? It would make life so much easier.

Lots of sewing as I make the girls jazz costumes. I think they look pretty good. 2 down, only another 8 to go! Lucky they only take about an hour and a half to make. They are not needed until the first week of December, so a dress a day should be a good thing to go for.

They look a like this!!!!

2013-11-07 11.34.31 and this is the other two colours that will go with them. I think they will awesome when they are finished.

Best get to bed, am feeling a little tired.

Mood Icons

OK Gang, need some help. My mood icons don't show up when I post a new entry. All I get is a little sun symbol with a speech bubble saying "I wish".


I'm so excited

I am so excited. Tonight I took my girl (and her best friend) to see Rock the Ballet and it was absolutely f*&^ing brilliant. I wanna go see it again, but the last show is tomorrow and I just don't have the ready cash lying around.

The other reason I'm excited is that we finally get to see the second season of Hawaii 5 O. It will be interesting to see how they edit it here since I've already seen the season online (shh!!!).

Anyway, lots of stuff to enjoy.


New Toy

Isn't my DH awesome. he got me a new smartphone for chrismas and even gave it to me early so I could have a play. Woohoo!!!
