Ooh, I only confessed this to one of my DD's the other day and she was horrified at me.

When I was a young hairdresser I did a really bad wax job on a ladies eyebrows (I was only 16 and should NOT have been asked to do it) and then convinced her it was the latest look.

She kept coming back to have it done that way.

Poor women, I still feel bad.

One dark and stormy night I ventured into the weird side of Youtube and now I have a severe addiction to pimple popping and dandruff scratching. :omg:

I wore socks and thongs to the chip shop the other day because my feet were cold, but I couldn't be bothered putting shoes on

100%.  I love Canberra too and if they had some different activities or vendors there for a change, Floriade would be much better.

It is only in the last 5 or so years I can say I actually love Canberra and Newcastle now.

It's Teen Titans now.

I know this because I had a migraine yesterday and asked DH to bring back mall food for dinner.

I'm driving less than a kilometre to pick DS up from kindy because I don't want to get swooped by magpies. Can't wait till swooping season is over.

I'm loving this cooler weather today although I got drenched getting home!

I hate summer. I hate the heat.

Well, that explains why there is a Starfire on a yellow plastic block in my bathroom. It appeared on the weekend when I was at work and I've been looking at it the past couple of days trying to figure out if it's new or something we've had forever.

I'm at work but not working.  I have completely and utterly checked out.  

I hate my job but the benefits are far outweighing everything else at the moment.

Basically you can't buy a house with one income and three kids.

Same!

Its the same thing year after year. I just can't ever get excited about it.

I suspect my daughter will enjoy the bus to Floriade more but she does love the flowers. Some years we don’t make it and we live close enough we could walk there (not with young children).

What the heck is Floriade? Apart from really difficult to type in an iPhone that has auto correct?

I had a milo today that was one inch milk and 3 inches of milo.

I had to google. Some weird flower festival held in Canberra.

I want to know how the locals pronounce that because what I am think can’t be right, surely?
