hey! I have a blog!

My oh my I've been a neglectful little sasuage haven't I. Poor poor unloved blog.

I've had about enough brain for facebook updates but no ability to form anything longer than that.

I've won two things recently (thus upping my lifetime total by 200%)
First there was the Lego Creationary game from Planning with Kids
and now a pack from Lovely Little Parties via Frills in the Hills
Two lovely pressies from two utterly fabulous blogs. It's pretty exciting

I'm horrified and excited that Christmas is getting closer. Nowhere near done on shopping/making pressies but I have most of them planned.
I made cute invites for Torbyboy and Zozo's party. 1 pdf of a 'fortune teller' from DrawPilgrim and some time spent on the computer replacing text later and tadah! Hooray for 2 days at work alone in the office.

Speaking of the oh my he can drive me insane sometimes. How is it that a 4yr old can have mood swings better associated with teenagers.
Last night he went from normal and cute to howling banshee who hated everyone in the world and especially us then to a sad and clingy creature who loved us and was very very sorry all in the space of half an hour. Oh the joy of bedtime. *twitch*

Today I'm taking him to the second of the Kindergarten Transition Mornings at his big school. Last one the parents got 'the talk' all about what to expect next year and a bunch of housekeeping stuff. This and the next session, we're expected to sod off for a few hours.
It's all a bit exciting and terrifying.
Can't believe I have a child who is going to school next year! Eeep

I still have photos to put on Flickr from the Great Norfolk Island Family Adventure. When my flickr uploader starts behaving and not crashing everytime..grr

I think that's enough of a catch-up for now. It's certainly enough links for one post

We had a mega meltdown at preschool, a "call Mummy from work to pick us up" meltdown (fortunately it was 4pm on a Friday) which lasted for over an hour, involved just about all the staff and nearly resulted in someone else's Nanna being brained with a triangle, we were just lucky she missed. So, ironically, she is spending another year at daycare instead of going to school. If she is still like that after next year I can just tell school that she is five turning six, you just have to deal with it.

Ooo, you won! Congratulations to you! I thought about entering both of those. Good thing I didn't, else I would have had to kill you.

And congratulations on being such a great mum who has a son who will go to school next year and can recognise that kids can and do drive you insane, but that the insanity is not permanent and the love is still there (if somewhat limp and droopy from fatigue on all sides)

Yay for you!

Oh I hear you Mindy...there are definately times when some form of electro-shock therapy wouldn't go astray.
Yay for us all MissImpish!
