So I havent worked in weeks as Im a casual and it is very quiet at work. Probably wont go back until the week of school or the week prior.

Im bored, we have done the parks, drives, beaches, playcentres, shopping, shopping, shopping.

Sorry can't help, I've only got crappy house stuff to do as well, and our bins are already out.

Although I will be watching a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy once DS is asleep, don't suppose that helps you though happy.gif

I did manage to keep him busy and entertained this afternoon by having him chase me with the hose biggrin.gif , do you have a sprinkler? Or have your kids chase you with the hose, great exercise - especially for the abs from all the belly laughing!

lol me chasing me with a hose. I'd be soaked and boobies would be out floucing around for all the neighbours to see lol.

My late afternoon didnt turn out to bad when my just newly retired neighbour came over to help fix our garage tilt a door which is 30yrs old and hubby wouldnt have a clue how to fix it. Hubby was at work and him and I worked on it and then I watered the garden/grass and put the bins out. dinner tonight is whatever since we had a big lunch and bday cake.

Today I raked and swept the yard, it look so good.  It was hard, I have blisters and I ache but the yard looks awesome, plus we are kind of fire ready.

After that I wanted to go the gym, but I went to coles instead and then liquorland and spent the afternoon drinking cocktails with my besties.... oh  am I helping?
