It's just another Manic Monday!
Woken up by three excited tots.
Staggered to make coffee
Mix up a batch of pancakes and cook them
Make Tot 1's lunch
The Teen helps me do the tots's hair
Shower - this takes me about a minute as I don't have TIME to take long water wasting showers!
Throw on clothes, they're clean, they're not frayed, they'll do.
Drive the Teen to school, drive Tot 1 to school
Come home and settle the other tot's down to watch Playschool
Put on a load of washing
Put on the vegetable soup for tonight
Wash some dishes
Have my breakfast while typing this.
Oh, it's now 10.18am
Right, washed more dishes,
Labelled plum sauce - note to self: Never make jam at 11pm when you are exhausted Crone, you forget to add two apples to the mix and jam doesn't set. That's kind of OK this time as I use plum sauce for pancakes and yoghourt.
Bread is in the machine to mix.
Another load of washing on, go and move hose to another tree.
Coffee machine is now cleaned and de scaled (must remember to make appointments at the dentist)
Cleaned up floor where tot 3 spilled her hot chocolate
Tot's fed and lying down
Bread is in the tray proving
Another load of washing on and hose moved to a new tree
Sitting down having a quick coffee and surf. Time 12.45pm
Remembered that it's pea planting day today! Happy St Patrick's day to all with Irish connections!
Spent 20 minutes removing cooch grass from one bed. This will be mulched in a minute or two.
Time to bring in last night's washing and hang out this morning's lot.
Phew, just manured and mulched the bed with most of my trees in it. 2.00pm
Ok, just did a quick online "which Pooh Bear character are you" test
And as they went, Tigger told Roo (who wanted to know) all about the things
that Tiggers could do.
"Can they fly?" asked Roo.
"Yes," said Tigger,
"they're very good flyers, Tiggers are. Strornry good flyers."
Roo. "Can they fly as well as Owl?"
"Yes," said Tigger. "Only they don't
"Why don't they want to?" well, they just don't like it somehow."
Roo couldn't understand this, because he thought it would be lovely to be
able to fly, but Tigger said it was difficult to explain to anybody who wasn't a
You scored as Tigger!
ABOUT TIGGER: Tigger is the newest addition to the Hundred Acre Wood, and he lives with Kanga and Roo, because Roo's strengthening medicine turned out to be the thing that Tiggers like best. Tigger is bouncy and confident -some of his friends think he is a little TOO bouncy and confident, but attempts to unbounce him tend to be fruitless.
WHAT THIS SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are a positive and confident person. You feel capable of dealing with anything and everything, and funnily enough, you usually ARE. You don't worry about much, and you love to go out and find new adventures.
Your friends and family might sometimes be a little exasperated by your boundless enthusiasm. You don't like to admit your mistakes, and when you find yourself in over you head, you tend to bluff your way out of things. You would be surprised, however, at how happy the people around you would be if you would actually admit to a mistake. It would make you seem more human, somehow.
So does that sound like me?
Moving right along too 2.30pm....
It's time to fight with Tot 3 about getting clothes on to go and collect Tot 1 from school. Fight with both Tots about getting in the car. Tot 1 is in a bad mood and hasn't eaten since "Forever, there's no foood, I'm hungry, there's never anything to eat!" Now my house is filled to the brim with fresh fruits, baked goodies and heatable snacks; go figure!
Get home to find that the ants have found the one spot of jam I missed on the floor last night. Sweep and mop like a crazy woman, take bread out of the oven, feed the tots snacks, sooth the grumpy Teen and have a glass of water. Is it too early for gin? it's now 5.35pm.
Dinner, baths and tots in bed within two hours, then I can get busy finishing my bamboo scarf (crochet) while watching The girl with the pearl earring.
Definatly no jam making tonight! I am however checking out cheesemaking. It would work out at $2 per kilo of cheese and makes 200kgs.
