What a week!

Where do I start on griping about my week? I guess with last weekend, I was sick, I had a tummy bug and a constant headache grrr. On Monday I had to go to Melbourne on the 6:36am train for training for work, I thought at 5:30am I was feeling better so decided to go, shame that wore off at about 6:40 when I was on the train with no option to turn back. Spent the whole day trying to stay awake and taking pain killers constantly. Spent Tuesday morning in bed then started to come good int he afternoon thanks to Claratyne and Nueophen. Wednesday I had to travel an hour to see a client who lives in a caravan on a farming block of land int he middle of nowhere. Knowing this I checked with the girls at work exactly how to get there and set off. Turns out they didn't live in the same out of the way place that they used to and I had to follow the ex-next-door-neighbours directions to the new out of the way place which turns out wasn't right. So I have to use the pay phone near the pub in this "town" (it only has a pub and service station), every time I tried to call, for various reasons I would run out of credit before getting to speak to anyone. So I dash over to the pub to get more change for the phone it takes a dollar then jams and won't accept anymore, so I accept defeat at this point and head back to the office. With all the cuffuffel of trying to figure that out I am then an hour late for my dinner out that night. Thursday was alright just boring as I had to do grocery shopping, Ethan went to kinder and Sam has drama after school so absolutely knackered by the time dinner is supposed to be on the table. Today I decided to see if my head ache would stay away without the neurophen , answer "no". Kids are at each other constantly, ran around the library laughing at the top of their lungs instead of sitting quietly like they had been asked 6 times, grrr again. So now we are home and I have just finished decoding the message on my answering machine from MIL about going to a school fete. Hubby was meant to tell me about it on Wednesday but because I was "flustered" he decided it could wait, I informed him that now I was flustered on Friday because I am meant to be taking 3 non behaving children to a school fete with an hours notice. He is coming home from work early to come with us, isn't he sweet?

Sorry about the long negative post but I need to unload this week and move forward.

Fire and Friends

Had the chance to catch up with Narelle (Relsi) and family tonight as the State Fire Brigade Championships were in town this weekend. Was very nice to see her and kids again and meet Steve (who looked very professional in his uniform). The boys were very excited to see and meet the firemen. Of course as scrappers we had to take photos.

Blog Things

Ok so I am getting a bit carried away with the blog things but some of them are cute

Your Old Fashioned Name Is...

Blanche Aldebourne

Your Inner Child Is Happy

You see life as simple, and simple is a very good thing.
You're cheerful and upbeat, taking everything as it comes.
And you decide not to worry, even when things look bad.
You figure there's just so many great things to look forward to.

Lucky Underwear

I stole this from my sister's blog. Turns out we have the same colour lucky underwear, hello Meg.

Your Lucky Underwear is Blue

You are caring and extroverted. You've made relationships your number one focus, and your lucky blue underwear can bring some balance to them.
You thrive in one-on-one situations. You are a good listener and a natural born therapist.

Sometimes you let the concerns of others become too important in your life, leading to stress and worry.
If you want more balance, put on your blue underpants. They'll help you take care of yourself first.
