totally bored at work and have wasted half my morning on EB and writing up baby checklists for things that we need and things that need doing.  Sometimes it is dead borning when your boss is away - how I wish I didn't have to be hear to man the phones!

Popping out soon to drop DD at her friends place for a play, then taking other DD to pick up stationary that was on back order. Probably a food shopping and it's my house cleaning day. Sheets are in the wash now. We didn't wake up until 9am and it's only 10 now, so not much yet.

Test driving cars that I've picked out over the weekend. Not as fun as it sounds - slimy salesmen and it's too hot to be enjoying jumping in and out of cars.

Well, we spent a couple of hours on the dog beach with dog chasing ball, DS on his nippers board trying to beat the dog, and me acting as judge, with DH on shore enjoying the show.

We have just had a great lunch of yummy roll, and then in an hour or so heading to the surf.

Pretty perfect day really - again

I built a new desk last week and emptied the old one, which means I now have a pile of crap sitting on the dining room table that I need to organise. Omelette now, gym later, then attempting to go to sleep at a decent hour when DH has to stay up til 2-3am for work >.<

dog beach?

DH and I have taken down the xmas tree at last and are now emptying out closets and having a big chuck-out to make space for the half of our house that has to be packed into the remaining half while we do renovations. DD has a friend here for the day so they are busy destroying the playroom and her bedroom. Might send them outside shortly to destroy the backyard. The sun has finally come out so when DS wakes from his nap we might all head out for a walk.

Not thinking about the washing
Not thinking about the dishes
Not thinking about cleaning the floors.

I'm in the process of some serious procrastination. If I keep my eyes firmly affixed on either computer screen or crosswords I won't see the chores that need doing.

Depending on the weather I might take the kids to the park later.

I've got cooking fever and have got three different meals cooking as I write- they'll all go into containers and then into the freezer, ready for those dreaded, rushed school day evenings. I'm also doing washing and  hoping to clean my feral pigsty of a house.

Sit out the back with cup of tea and read the paper - done

dog beach?



Most beaches around melbourne have controls whether dogs are allowed off leash, especially at this time of year. At the end of the street at this time of year the beach alllows dogs off leash until midday at which time they turn in to pumpkins.

So we tend to take the dog there for an hour or two in the morning, the boy paddles on his board, and we just have some fun. The surf beach is a national park, so no dogs allowed
