butter wouldn't melt

He's been a real pain in the behind for the past couple of weeks, but gosh he's cute!

Don't you think?

not-so-lazy daisy

tassie flowers

Wow, I am so looking forward to the weekend!  That seems to be all I ever talk about!  I guess it just proves that we should have more than 1 weekend a week.  What do you think?

Last weekend I was full of good intent but ended up being full of laziness.  It was good because it was needed but this weekend I really feel like I might get some things done.  Get some sewing done.  I really miss the whirr of my little machine and the happy mess I make whilst sewing.  It's been too long!

Tonight, I am off to see this lovely man in action.  Can't wait!

being a good sport

My first Motivator

This is particularly relevant after the game I went to yesterday.  Sydney Swans (my team!) lost to Carlton by 34 points after a slight improvement in the last quarter.

Now I don't want to go on and on about the game, but I would like to talk about good sportsmanship.  Everyone wants their team to win but it just ain't gonna happen every round.  So you do what a good fan does and come back next week ready to cheer and hope for the best.  You might get a bit cranky, but you still cheer your team on until the end of the game.  And if you win you celebrate, sure.  You might gloat a little.  But I really don't think you need to be mean about it.  I don't think you need to boo the other team (whom you are beating by quite a lot) every time they take a shot on goal (and then laugh if they miss).  I don't think you should laugh when your child says things like, "haha, suck it! You guys are suckers!" and "No one's ever gonna beat us!" for the entire game.  I think there is such a thing as being a good winner.  And a good looser.

Do you agree, or am I just being overly sensitive?

Wow, I am so lazy

swing shadow

Hi there.  Remember me?  Yes, I am the incredibly lazy one that hasn't been around for awhile.  I have no excuse.  May I be excused?

So, what's been happening?  I have had a few very busy weekends visiting friends and having friends visit.  It's been wonderful but I am very much looking forward to a lazy weekend (see how lazy I am?).  I might even manage to fit in some sewing.  Hopefully.

Here's hoping you have a wonderful weekend too, and I will try and not be so lazy next week :)

Not quite a superhero

me and katey

Well I certainly haven't felt much like a superhero this week, but last weekend I looked like one!  We had a great time visiting our family and celebrating my sister's 21st birthday.  It was so great to have the whole family together as it doesn't happen very often (I have 4 sisters!).  It was also great to see the creativity in everyone's costumes!  My youngest sisters were the most creative - going as the Hulk and a blue powerpuff girl (in the pic with me).

This weekend we're off to spend time with our other family - our fantastic and much loved friends in Brisbane.  I can't wait!
