How Do You Do?

A questionnaire is about all I can muster up at the moment.  The child is refusing to have a day sleep, refusing to go to bed at night, wakes up during the night, then wants to start the day at 5:30am!  To say it's draining my enthusiasm for blogging would be an understatement.

1.  Were you named after anyone?
Yes, my great grandmother.

2.  When was the last time you cried?
Monday afternoon.  I was just so frustrated with Rory.

3.  Do you like your handwriting?
It's ok.  It used to be much neater when I was at school.

4.  What is your favourite lunch meat?
Salami or chicken.

5.  Do you have kids?
Yes, one.

6.  If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
I guess so.  I'm 'interesting' haha.

7.  Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I try not to as I really don't like it.

8.  Do you still have your tonsils?

9.  Would you bungee jump.
Umm let's see.  I hate heights, I hate falling, I hate being upside down.  That'd be a no.

10.  What is your favourite cereal?
Weetbix Wild Berry Bites.

11.  Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Most of the time.

Nope, God is my strength.

Cookies and cream.

14.  What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their mood.

15.  Red or pink?

16.  What is the least favourite thing you like about yourself?
Physically, my stomach (it's never been the same since having Rory).  Personality-wise, my temper.

17.  Who do you miss the most?
My Nan.

18.  What colour pants and shoes are you wearing?
Black shorts and brown ugg slippers.

19.  What was the last thing you ate?

20.  What are you listening to right now?
My house being cleaned.  Yay!  Cleaners are a wonderful provision when you have kids.

21.  If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Blue or purple.

22.  Favourite smells?
Freshly baked bread, coffee, men's deodorant, roses, lavender

23.  Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?

No, I wear glasses for watching TV and computer work.

Usually happy endings as long as they're not too cheesy.

Still Alive

I'm still here, I've just felt like a break from blogging.

I've been sick and couldn't attend a wedding we were invited to, which was very disappointing.   Thank goodness for my mum and Duncan holding the fort.  I'm feeling a bit better now though.

We chose to can our Perth holiday and go to Albany instead.  Partly because of the heat and I just couldn't handle rushing around visiting everyone.

Rory chose to wean himself off his dummy (we bought him a new one and he chucked a sad because he wanted the old one).  He only used it for sleeping, but this resulted in a lack of sleep for his mummy and daddy for a while.  He seems to have adjusted for now, praise the Lord.  I was afraid he was going to drop his day sleep and that would not be good.

Summer has just been so, so draining.

We are off to Esperance on Monday.  When we get back, blogging will resume with some regularity.
