Birthday Present

Don't you love it when you get to the age where you just pick out your own present and tell everyone to help you pay for it? I will be 31 in 9 days, my mother kindly reminded me this morning, when asking me what I wanted. I drew a blank, now its certainly not that I have everything a girl could want, but I just couldn't think of a price appropriate request. Then wandering into Big W I had a brain wave, the Pentax K100D, now its not a Canon, but I am excited none-the-less, a good starting point. So I put it on layby and when anyone asks what I want I can just request money to put towards it. WooHoo a digi SLR, can't wait.

2 Posts in 1 Day

Well now that I have vented about my day I can reminisce about my baby boy. My Ethan turned 4 yesterday at exactly this time (how cool is that?) 11:27pm on October 6th 2003.

He has been soooo excited about his birthday for months he has been asking, well that is not quite right, he has been stating (it was a foregone conclusion as far as he was concerned) that he was getting a big Lightening McQueen. We couldn't get him anything else now could we? So he got the Lightening McQueen, big one, and the joy on his little face was so gorgeous.
I don't know where 4 years has gone. He is such a funny little chap, nothing like his siblings. He just plods along in his own little world most of the time. We had a little party for him which was his first little friend party really, it was really lovely to see him with his little friends, he and Sei were so sweet together and I can see why they are friends. He is growing into a real little boy and although I sometimes find his dreamboat manner frustrating he is a refreshing presence in our family.

I Can Fly

Well not really but I definitely feel like my feet aren't touching the ground at the moment. I am now working 3 days a week (the money is nice lol) and every weekend has at least one thing on, sometimes something on both days. Weddings, birthdays, trips to Melbourne for numerous things, I am tired. I don't want to cancel or flake out on anything because they are all fun or exciting in their own way just as a collection.... phew, a bit much.

I have caught up with friends new and old each weekend. Some times this has been wonderful and sometimes like today, just makes me feel like I am back in high school. Why is it there is always one person from your past that can make you feel that inferior again, I don't need her approval, my life has been far more successful than hers. I sooooo want to be able to let it go, so breathing in.........breathing out, chanting I am better than her, I don't care what she thinks. On a positive and sentimental note, to all those who are my true friends thank you for not making me feel that way, and I certainly hope I don't do that to any of you.

Gee this turned into a downer post sorry, am now going to bathe the children and do some scrapping to catch up with some swaps.
