Drink up, lady.

I just had a tense couple of minutes as I was pfaffing about too much on EB and accidentally closed down the database I was using to do some research for a client.  I was most please to log back on and find that everything I have spent the afternoon doing has been saved  ddance.gif


Phew!!!
Good evening ladies. I am sitting having a glass of wine, reading a Kate Morton book on my kindle app, and grateful to have leftovers in the fridge for dinner (down to one child tonight).

Evening!

I have had an absolutely crap week, but today has been a bit better and I hope that means things are on the improve.  Right now having tea, I think I might give the wine a miss today, but always up for a chat.

Also glad to have leftovers, all I needed to do was make extra rice.

I am out of cider cry1.gif but considering cracking open some wine. Red wine goes well with sausage, egg and chips right? unsure.gif

This week has been bollocks. I'm weaning off ADs, I got my period and DS has been a teething cranky pants. And to top it all off we had to spend $300 on a plumber today to get the drains unblocked, which was extremely stinky, and there's still more work to be done

I've started ph34r.gif Black Douglas and Coke.

My husband, his best friend and my eldest are in the shed playing old school Streets of Rage.

I'm excited because it's my birthday next month and Pat is buying me a complete recreation of Callisto's outfit from Xena ddance.gif

But mostly I am just exhausted because 3 young kids on school holidays is tiring. At least I can be thankful that Tas starts 4 terms this year so they go back at the start of Feb instead of mid-Feb like they usually would. I think I'm going to miss them though. It's my youngest's first year. My baby shadow is all growed up cry1.gif

yeah, not great. fortunately I did enjoy (probably too much) spending the early part of the week ranting and raving on EB, FB and IRL about the public breastfeeding stuff. AND I get my iPad on Sunday biggrin.gif

So what type of tea Ange? I could drink tea pretty much constantly and I don't think it would be enough.

I wish I wasn't watching my weight and have vowed not to have alcohol this weekend.  Worked 8-4 today, inbetween running kids back and forth.   Had to walk back and forth between our current office and the new office 5 times in the heat to bring tradies through to quote. Only a 10 minute walk but nada shade! Wish I could've booked them all to come through at the same time.

Boss then wanted another set of photos taken and sent to him (he's away) so I had to trek back over.  

Just cooked a baked chicken than I bought at Coles and the damn thing was so small I gave my share to the kids and just had salad and bruscetta.    Then DH came home sat down to his share and when I asked how it was he said, 'not really very nice - not your fault I know!'   Why couldn' t he just eat what he wanted, then scrape in rest the bin, then I wouldn't feel so crap.  I know it wasn't meant to hurt me but it sucks anyway.

Arrrgghh.  I think I'm going to crack!  


Holly - red wine goes with everything.   Sucks about the plumbing.  When ours was blocked last it cost us $3,000 as we had to dig up and replace a whole length due to tree roots sad.gif

Xena - we need pics!!

squeekums -I've never made it to a BDO.  It was always something DH did with his mates and was a boys only thing.  I never had any girls that wanted to go with me sad.gif

Absolutely, Xena. Just like Pinot Grigio is going with very disappointing leftover chicken pie. It was much nicer last night. I think I overheated it.
Money ... I am in the process of buying my house and have started a wish-list of all of the things I would like to do to it - need a second mortgage already.

You can call me HOO. Right after I changed my UN to this someone called me that, and I nearly spat tea on my monitor when I saw it.

I hear you on the money. I've spent way too much of this week sitting online splitting up my ranting time with online window shopping. Someone should just pay me to rant, because I am awesome at it.

Found some decent looking sparkling wine which is obviously much more suited to sausages, so it's chilling in the freezer biggrin.gif

When I get it I will biggrin.gif It's a custom made costume so it'll probably take awhile to make and it's expensive but meh dressing up and alcohol are pretty much the only things I buy for myself. I save heaps on having a shopaholic sister who gives me all her cloths tongue.gif

This is the costume though:

vodka and soda water has very few calories wink.gif sucks about the trekking back and forth sad.gif
luckily it doesn't look like tree roots for us, just possibly a cracked pipe due to our crappy clay soil. but the previous owners paved over the top of one of the access point thingos so we have to get a new one of those in before we can know for sure.

Anyone been to Vietnam? My task for tonight was to plan our trip. I have booked the international flights for the kids (11yo x 2) and I, but have booked NOTHING for the 3 weeks between the flights. Any hotel/activity recommendations? I am thinking I should probably start a thread of its own, huh?
Gave up on the leftovers. Just going to fill up on wine instead.
