Good morning. In an attempt to get back into my blogging routine I am up. I had my alarm set for 5:30am but it didn’t go off. It seems I set it for 5:30pm, I have a bad habit of doing that. Who’s with me on that one? It is ok, I am still up and enjoying a coffee before the children.
Now I know I keep banging on about this ALL THE TIME but seriously…. where is the year going? I know I say it every month, but really ….. 5th August already. This time next week I will be in Mt Isa, CHILD FREE. Did you hear me: CHILD FREE. You see I am off to the annual ProBlogger Conference next week on the Gold Coast. Thanks to my wonderful Mum and Dad – DD & Rexy, I am able to go away without a care in the world knowing that the children will be taken care of and I am only slightly EXCITED!!! Can you tell? So I hit the road out of here on Tuesday into Mt Isa for a much needed hair cut. Then it is onto Brisbane for a lovely night in the city on Wednesday. Of course after reading THIS post about Nikki’s (from Styling You) stay in the Hilton I had to book in. On Thursday one of my blogging buddies – the lovely Kirsten – from Kirsten & Co is going to collect me and drive me to the Gold Coast – how’s that for service!!! So bring it on people, bring it on, I can’t wait.
I am not sure if it is because the year has just gotten busier and busier but I seem to have lost my blogging mojo. I don’t feel like I have anything interesting to tell you at the moment, but I am giving it a go today…. trying to talk shit like normal. I think life seems to get so boring and when we are in our own little bubble you don’t think that anyone would be interested in your boring little life. What is everyday to us is actually interesting to other people – that is still so peculiar to me.
I am feeling very happy and much less stressed lately, ever since our new cook arrived. It is so nice to be back in my own house. It is great to sit down at our own dining table and eat as a family, which means the kids are eating a little better too. I felt like I totally neglected them while I was cooking. I don’t think I really did, but in my own nutty little head it was all going pear shaped. You know how we blow things out of proportion, I am really good at this. Total nut case really. I think if I do that cooking gig again I will have to slap myself and get a backpacker as a helper. Why do we think we can DO IT ALL OURSELVES???
While I was in Darwin I didn’t do a whole lot of shopping but I am excited about one item I bought – a new iPhone cover. I know – get a life right, but it is so cool. While Mr Chardy’s Dad & Step Mum (Grandpa & Grandmarg) were visiting I noticed Grandmarg’s cool iPhone cover. It was a wallet type thing and the actual iPhone came out, but when you put it back in it just magnetised itself to the wallet – SO COOL. So of course when I was in Darwin I paid a visit to one of those dodgy little stalls that are set up in the middle of the shopping centre walk ways and found my own special magnetic case. Here look….
Yes, I do live under a rock, and no – I had never seen these before. Give me strength….get me out of here people…. I am excited about an iPhone cover for crying out loud…..send help.
I also bought season 2 of Love Child? Did you watch it? It appears that I missed the whole season while doing my little cooking stint. Looking forward to catching up on that one.
What else have I missed while I have been living in Kitchen Land?
