Bits of this & that.

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? ~Milton Berle
If you would like more pictures of the Springbrook area Sian has some up on her blog; click on the image & it should take you there. They are from our last trip but she promised she'd put some recent ones up & she has the really good camera & an artist's eye so I am eagerly looking forward to seeing some of her shots. She's gone back to work though so I don't know when she'll get round to doing it.

We are heading back to mum's on Saturday. Ditz & I will have a bit over a week then leave Liddy to have some time on her own with her grandmother & finish off her holiday in peace. She has to cut it short as it is because she is wanted back at work in time for stocktaking but she really needs this break. She needs to get right away, off the island, somewhere where she can't hear all the work gossip, or go visit or any of the things she normally does.

We are hoping for at least some good weather so we can walk. The rainforest on the Sunshine coast is far more tropical though we got leeches at Springbrook this time too! I hate leeches. I'm not into parasites of any sort. Liddy has organised some surf lessons for her & Ditz, Ditz mostly because she won't even get in the water if it's even a little bit rough & Liddy likes company. I don't think it will help much though it just might give her the confidence she needs to cope with the surf.
I was hoping my mags would have arrived but they haven't. What has arrived is the pre~school testing. Ugh! They might have waited till we were officially back.

I am going to have one very unhappy cat. Going away once was bad enough but at least I left him Liddy. Going away twice & taking Liddy with me is unforgivable. Dearest does not count. Issi is happy to let Dearest feed him but Dearest is another male & does not give Iss the care & attention Iss thinks his due.

Why is there always so much extra work to do for a little trip? Bills to pay, laundry, laundry & more laundry...& where did it all suddenly come from? E~mails to send. Where is my curriculum I ordered 6 weeks ago? Remembering that when I get back Ditz immediately begins flute, violin & choir & I will promptly be completely broke. *sigh*

I like that Milton Berle quote at the beginning! So true! I also think that I would have grown a third breast by now if evolution were true! After all, I've been breastfeeding for nearly 7 years straight! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by my blog recently! God bless!

Hi Ganeida,
I love the quote about mothers only having two hands - eight (like an octopus) would definitely come in handy, sometimes. Then, why do women have eyes in the back of their heads - ask any child? lol

:] Look at all the stuff you do every day and how it piles up when you are gone!! No pictures of that, eh?
