I think reality is starting to set in here at Chardy HQ and it makes me feel a little sick to tell you the truth. No one wants to think about continuing on without Mick as our fearless leader but I guess we just have to. We just don’t want to. We have ups and downs and just when you think things are going along ok, bam, you have a real downer. One day at a time, that is what everyone keeps saying and I guess they are right. I think we need to keep reminding ourselves of this…
Mix this with cooking and PMT and it is not pretty people. Oh no siree, it is foul. Then throw in some office work with the cooking gig and things can get a little overwhelming. I have been spraying the rescue remedy around left right and centre and popping those PMT (anti bitch) pills like a crazy lady but still I can’t beat this feeling I have in my tummy. Thank god I have such a fabulous husband who comes to the rescue when he can see the cheese falling off my cracker. Georgie usually comes to pick up the pieces and helps out every time. We always get there in the end and I need to remind myself that I am not in this alone. Why do we think we have to do EVERYTHING ourself? This is the problem. I need to realise that everyone is here to help and I don’t have to do it ALL. If I can keep reminding myself of this I should be ok.
Do you do this too? Surely I am not the only one. We get stuck in our own little world, soon we have 2,072 things to do and not enough time to do it. Mix this with a lack of sleep and things can spiral out of control at a rapid rate. Am I right?
So what’s been happening around these parts this week? Well everyone has been having a hit of cricket of an afternoon. Practicing their batting and bowling. Dan – our new Bore Runner – has been mowing and rolling the pitch. You see, we are all off to Camooweal this afternoon for the annual Cricket Weekend. And let me tell you, even I can’t wait. It will be lovely to chill out, catch up with friends and just relax a little. Mr & Mrs Savvy B are the organisers of this event and I can’t wait to see them. Miss Gabby & Yarraki have been busy painting shirts and our team is called The Jack Russells. I think we are taking Rosie – our mascot in with us. She will be as proud as punch.
I am so sick of the sight of food this week, oh god – so much food. I need 2 days of fasting I think. What’s been cooking? Well there has been roast chicken, chocolate pudding, corned beef & white sauce, sausage rolls, creamy chicken soup and fresh bread rolls, banana loaf, pizza, lasagne with bread twist, beef stroganoff…… and a heap more. Get me out of here before I have to cook another meal…. please. I have my meal plan all sorted for next week so hopefully it will be a better week. I wasn’t very organised this week – turns out that no meal plan = out of control Chards.
Anyway, I am sure I have bored you all to tears with this makeshift blog post. I really hope you all have a fabulous weekend, whatever it is you have planned. Enjoy!!
