Home.

Dd has crashed after dh took them both to rock climbing today.  So bonus for me!  I imagine ds won't be far behind!  Dh and I are going to eat steak and watch Red Dog original.gif

Then going to tetsuya tomorrow for my birthday lunch!

So excited I don't even care it's raining.

I accidentally froze 2+ kg. of mince into a huge useless block so now I have to figure out what to cook it as and refreeze it all.

Because I'm ****ing clever that's why.

Anyway, drinking Greyhounds (grapefruit juice and vodka) as I cook. I am surely a party animal.

JEALOUS!!!!  original.gif

I'm ignoring my DD who is walking around without a nappy on. I just hope whatever it is is on the hard floor, not the carpet.

Going to open a bottle of Riesling in a minute and do something with salmon and rice.

My kids are driving me nuts. They came home and had a big afternoon tea, then they ate dinner at church-had wraps and meat and lots of veges and then fruit and now are complaining they are hungry.

There shall be junk food tonight, because my day just has not worked out at all.  My baby is turning into a toddler, and that seems to be much harder work!

la di dah, all my suggestions involve cheese, but that wouldn't suit you, would it?

This is one of these times that I remember I have a large family because I often cook up 2kg of mince laughing2.gif

Una I'm jealous, I love tetsuyas (my iPad wanted to correct that to " testy as") ....I am in home entertainment networking hell.. DH bought an apple airport (?) and we now are trying to make our PC talk to our Sony. They are being churlishly silent. I am drinking. DS 1 is quietly drawing in the corner not saying anything because he thinks we have forgotten to put him to bed.

I love it too.  My mum takes me out as our regular birthday treat every year.  I look forward to it for weeks!

Yum chaos in stereo - I wish I had some nice Riesling.  I'm drinking one of dh's gamay noirs (yes, seriously) and its ok.  LDD, I like the sound of those greyhounds!

Yeah at home with my folks it would have been fine but with just me and A Tiny Hedgehog (and he's a light eater) the only reinforcements willing to eat much were the cats and I refuse to feed them burgers just because.

Unatheowl, the greyhounds are so good. I mean technically the juice is a mango-grapefruit blend because my grocery decided to randomly not carry grapefruit juice, but I think they still count. Also Aldi has vodka now! biggrin.gif

LDD I would just make heaps of meatballs, bake in oven, divide and freeze. They are good in rolls, on rice, on pasta, and I usually make heaps at a time for those nights I can't be a*sed.

I am really low today. I've done next to nothing and feel exhausted. Yesterday was Dad's birthday and for some reason it has hit me hard this year (he passed away 6 years ago). I'm on the moscato and DP has brought home take away, and is now heading out again for more grog and some chocolate.

Ianthe, mum used to say if we wouldn't eat an apple we weren't really hungry original.gif so maybe offer one?

Ange, what is the little... Darling... Up to?

My cat got sirloin last night...was doing a Thai beef salad and Trim was circling around like crazy so I cut off a couple of strips and gave it to him..he did that thing where he purred and ate at the same time. The purring sounded like a generator it was so loud! Tonight I was doing chicken breast for DS so gave trim a couple of slices ...he kind of looked at me like "are you for real? Where's the good stuff?"

Not really. I tend to let DH add his own cheese afterwards if he wants it so badly, because I'm mean. biggrin.gif

I have made a tupperware of taco meat (chili, paprika, cumin, etc) and am going to make another batch in a little while.

And then I think spaghetti sauce with meat. Aren't I exotic.

Pooks, I'm really sorry.  hhugs.gif

Today, in no particular order, she...

- figured out how to get to DH's guitar and was sitting there plucking the strings when I came to make sure she didn't pull it over on her head
- emptied out my bin onto the floor and tried to eat random bits
- has figured out that the laundry door (which I keep closed) isn't very secure and can be pushed open silently, giving access to a box of non-baby-friendly stuff I have stored there, the cat tray, and through the laundry, the kitchen with its cupboards to empty and the cat food to eat.
- tried to eat power cords (this is constant, apparently they're very tasty).

and, gosh, I don't know what else but it feels like I've been getting up and saying "ZoĆ«, no!" every five seconds.  I feel like I'm being so mean and stifling her joy at exploring new things, but...it's kind of necessary!

My day went from bad to worse.
I emptied out the full money box to take down to the bank and the bag burst in the car flinging about $60 of silver coins all over the car.
Went and did the shopping and DD3 started getting whingy so we came home.
Walk in the door and the Rotti has decided to empty out the bin.
By this stage it's 10:30 and I was craving a bevy.
DD3 had a nap and was back to herself.
I discover that about $30 in gold coins has disappeared.
Question children. DD1 confesses.
Had a talk with her and she has been buying her friends lunch orders.
Very disappointed in her.
I have had 1 Breezer and some home made vanilla ice cream and about to send children to bed and have another bevy and catch up on the shows I've missed this week.

I'm sorry Pooks....sad.gif

And Ange Vert...it is a tough time...my second son (only 9 months) is giving us a glimpse of what he will be like in a few months time...and yes, power cords are a hit. And remotes! What is it with children and remotes... ? We even have a spare foxtel one, which doesn't have batteries in it, so I try giving him that one, but no, the little terror somehow knows  that it s not the one that does all the fancy stuff so still insists on the proper remote, and when he gets it he invariably presses the button to take it off the cable channel so we get this loud static boom and then he cries and fixes me with this indignant look...like "why did you let that happen?" Grrrr
