Good morning. Welcome to a new week. Lets do this. I have a bit of a mixed bag for you today and a little secret to share with you that involves jewellery. I would also like to discuss Mary – The Making of a Princess: did you watch it. We also need to talk all things working Mums. So grab a coffee and kick back.
I have been making jewellery for quite a few years now – pearl and beaded stuff because we all know I am a huge sucker when it comes to pearls, I just can’t say no. My sister taught me how to make necklaces back when I was pregnant with my second child – Harry. I though “oh god, here we go” and then I was hooked. It has been pretty much out of control since. I have approximately 2,364,487 beads in my possession ready to get creative with. The past few years have been a little busy and since having my third little darling – Clancy – I don’t have anywhere to set up my bling. No spare room anymore. But I do have a dining table that isn’t getting used at the moment, seeing as though I am cooking and we eat over in the station kitchen. So out it all came and my dining table has turned into a beading studio. Sounds fancy doesn’t it. It isn’t, it is a huge mess…
Some of my readers have commented on my necklaces in the past so I thought the right thing to do was whip up a few and let you have a look – a sneak peak. Next week I will be starting some Facebook whirlwind sales. So if you like what you see then stay tuned. Perhaps you need to do some Christmas shopping. Or perhaps you just need to treat yourself. Who can say no to pearls?! The necklaces will range in price from $25 – $135. Can you tell my favourite colours are green and pink?
So tell me – did you watch Mary last night? Thoughts??? I am pretty sure Mary was never such a bogan. Surely. Could they have made her sound any more Australian? God it was like it was me dating Fred. They made her seem like such a ditz, it was embarrassing. I was having an alcohol free night but just had to pour myself a wine half way through. Of course, I couldn’t stop watching, but seriously, did they have to make her look so timid and weak. I have no doubt that Mary was never either of these. What do you think?
Now onto Working Mums. Are you a working Mum? Did you have your baby and then pop your little bundle of JOY in daycare as soon as you could so you could go back to work? I say good on you if you did. Holy cow, this parenting gig is exhausting. I can totally see why Mum’s want to go back to work – it is called SANITY. I too have returned to work but I still have the little darling with me 24/7, no escaping. And the whinging, the relentless whinging is enough to break even the most patient Mum. Which I am not, by the way – patient. Out here in the middle of nowhere there is DEFINITELY no escaping them. No grandparents to drop them off too so Mr Chardy and I can have a night out, no Aunty to leave them with for a few days, no babysitters to call upon. Well that isn’t entirely true I suppose… I do have Mrs Savvy B who has taken them on occasion and we do have Miss Georgie and Miss Gabby who do look after them too when we need them, but that is it. God listen to me bang on. When I get like this you know I need to get out of here for a little trip away. When I look at my calendar it has been a month since my last town trip, no wonder I am starting to feel it.
Luckily I am heading off on Thursday for 4 nights child free. Did you hear me – 4 NIGHTS CHILD FREE. A girls weekend. We (a friend – Miss Plonk – and I) are taking Mrs Savvy B on a Mystery Trip as a gift for her 40th Birthday. We are beyond excited. 3 sleeps to go. I will head over and collect Mrs Savvy B on Thursday afternoon and we will head into Mt Isa. Where we go from there is a Mystery. Are you looking forward to coming along with us?
So back to my point – if you are a working Mum – I TOTALLY GET IT – go you I say. Save your sanity. No judging from this end, I am just jealous. And as they say…
