Seeing it is a bit cooler today in Perth and after some lovely rain last night I'm going to head out to do some gardening soon. I have a new rosebush to plant. I'm going to bake sometime today and tackle the huge ironing pile in front of some trashy tv I've recorded. Nothing exciting but it does feel good to get on top of these things.
What about you??

I am actually not sure what to do today. My kid's Dad is here so I would really like us all to go out for a few hours. The weather is really pleasant. I have been really low all week and think it would do me good to get out of the house. I think I might google and see what is on locally.
I have to be at church between 4:00 and 9:00 so that's my late afternoon/evening gone.

I'm in Perth too ... about to make DH breakfast in bed for his birthday. Then tidying the house for people coming round this arvo for a birthday BBQ.
DD slept 12 hours straight for the first time last night so feeling like I could run a marathon!

Dh is in prison all day (working ) so it's me and the little ones, I will be trying to keep them entertained while folding nappies, doing a bit of cleaning, probably need to pop to the shops for a few things unfortunately. Will bake some bickies for them later. Not much really.

DP's walked the kids up to MILs, so I'm here, supposedly cleaning, but in reality, I'm goofing around on EB and about to go wrap a couple more Christmas pressents

Also in Perth so we are going to clean down our patio ready for summer. Borrowed a high pressure hose so cleaning the furniture, patio blinds & windows.
( Haven't been out there much due to winter & young son...)
If I get time I'd like to finish some weeding too & go buy some ground covers but that might have to wait.
Before that whacking on the slow cooker - Honey Soy chicken..yummo
MIL is coming over to look after DS while we get jobs done, so much easier that way
Enjoy your gardening, the rain was a nice surprise last night.

Im at work!! boo.. Only for a few hours though.. its the end of the Freo festival so I will be heading in there with my DH this afternoon to people watch and have some dinner. I am almost 7 months pregnant so it wont be a late one! haha.. We have really strange sleeping patterns already (awake at 4.30am and asleep by 8.30 at the latest) due to our work so I might have a nap this afternoon before I go!
Gardening sounds lovely though! This weather in Perth is perfect to get in the garden!

Well the bot has a hockey clinic this morning, dh has taken him, so I am relaxing cross sttitching. Once they are home hopefully we may get a swim, before his indoor hockey game late this afternoon.
I assume dh's best mate is coming for dinner, so a nice BBQ and then a great evening with enjoyable company

I'm in hospital all afternoon and half the night. I'm a student nurse. Its fun, but it also sucks cause I don't get paid for it, and I'm always being told I'm doing stuff wrong.

Oooo... now I want banoffee pie too!
DH is working, so I'll be sewing, playing games with my toddler, might attempt some baking but mostly sewing! I'm creating a beautiful quilt for my little one and hoping to have it finished for Christmas.

We not long got back from an early soccer training session & sausage sizzle.
Now to do cleaning.

I'm in Perth too. I'm unpacking - we moved last week. I want to finish off the family/dining room. Then I can start helping the kids as they have all gotten overwhelmed with the task at hand and stopped completely.
Then I'm going to play with my irobot Roomba - it's awesome.
Hope everyone enjoys their day.

Waiting and preparing for my gastric sleeve surgery on Wednesday. I'm living on 800 calories a day which is freaking exhausting so I can't do much. It's worth it though! Man I got chubby after my last little one

So far I've made my Christmas cake (should be done in the next 30 mins or so), made some marmalade and made some sushi for lunch. Have also made the dough for pizza for dinner tonight and done 3 loads of washing. I did make pikelets that I hoped would see a couple of days in the lunch boxes but three seemingly starving children swooped in and demolished the lot for breakfast!
H has taken girls off to the market for fruit and veggies and for them to give their favorite stall lady a card and some chocolates for being the best market keeper in the whole world (as written on Miss 6's card)
We will probably have a walk into town later to get some popcorn as we have a dvd to watch with the girls later that we didn't get round to tonight. Am making the most of this weekend as its the last nothing one before Christmas and our last one without people here or commitments until they are back to school as we have my mum coming from UK for Christmas and my sister and BiL and their DS staying for all of Jan!

So far it's been a very productive day.

Two loads of washing
Vacuumed and mopped
Finished and ordered 2013 calendars for family
Made some pastillage and coloured some fondant
Sized cake board and DH kindly got it cut for me.
About to head over to a friend's house for morning tea and then this arvo catching up with other friends for dinner.
A good day - productive and time to catch up with friends, love it.

Just finished marking prep music papers in front of the cricket. Wanted to enter them into the spreadsheet, but annoyingly, it's saved on the school network, not the PC harddrive so I can't access it.
Have hung a load of laundry out and am strongly debating whether of not to try and tackle some more. It's a gloriously hot day today, so I'm thinking it's a good idea, it'lld ry in 2 seconds flat.
Have some CDs to burn for people, so that's probably my next activity after putting the laundry on.

Kids with their dad and I am supposed to writing report cards, on a coffee break.

Working. Today is the 7th day straight. 51 hours this week.
I'm so exhausted! Can't wait for tomorrow, but we are meant to be moving this week too.

Shopping for a bookcase for the rumpus room and some salad tongs. Ahh, the party never stops here.

We have had a very productive day today.
DD1 & I have baked a big batch of our favourite biscuits and frozen the rest of the dough ready to bake for another time.
We have also made some honey joys for snacks for a change and will do some chocolate pikelets later too.
Have a corned silverside in the slow cooker and some baked vegies in the oven for dinner tonight. Plus have a pumpkin soup currently cooling down to be pureed for dinner tomorrow night.
DH is mowing the lawn and the girls are helping pull out weeds and said they want to wash the car too.

Another one in Perth.
I was up early to go back to the gym and do another 30min stint on the treadmill, following 1 30 min yesterday afternoon and one 11pm-midnight stint last night. A total of over 21km done - I've never run so much in my life! It's a part of the Onyxfit 24hour Telethon and Cancer Council Challenge. The trainers there have each run between 21 and 42km, and done 1000's of Burpees, Chin Ups, Push Ups, laps of the stairs and more to raise over $10000 for these good causes.
I'm about to head back there for a sausage sizzle, raffles and kids entertainment. Well done Onyxfit.
