You know, all those little things that go in to making up our lives, but that make it seem like we're never actually doing anything?
Like sitting in Bob Jane Tmart for an hour today while one of the mechanics tried to work out why my tyre has a slow leak that sees us driving around at 10psi after a few months. It seems that there was a nail stuck in the tyre. At least I got to catch up on February's celebrity gossip care of the magazines in the waiting room. At least Jamie was at his Grandparents'.
Like the half hour I spent trying to put a keypad back onto my laptop this morning. Jamie gave it a bit of a vigorous typing test. Oops! Ever tried to fossick with minute parts wearing a thumb guard? Fun. Not. I will now be taking said laptop somewhere where a professional can fiddle with it. That'll probably be another hour.
Like ringing around to work out the best way of selling my antique dining table we no longer want. It would seem that auction is the best way. It took me half an hour to discover that, and to understand what I have to do to get my table to auction.
I still have a heap of things that I was supposed to do today. I guess it all just goes onto tomorrow's to-do list. Which was already long enough.
Do you ever have periods in your life where you just feel like it's one step forward and two steps back? I'm having one at the moment. Whinge. Whinge. Grizzle.
We spent the afternoon at childcare yesterday. Jamie seemed to enjoy it. As long as I was there so he could clamber up into my lap and read all the new picture books, lol. More orientation sessions over the next couple of weeks.
This month's CK is out and I have a layout in the Aussie Reader Gallery:
Journaling: While you and I were enjoying ourselves in Perth with your cousins, Daddy had come home and was redecorating your room. What a wonderful surprise to come home to! Your room's so bright and airy now. New cupboards display your toys. Pictures hang on the walls. Teddies keep watch. At last, you have a proper nursery.
How-to instructions are here.
That's all folks! I'm off to grizzle into my hot chocolate.
