: : Hello from the land of 'whew what a CRAZY yet awesome week last week was'
: : Last week we learned (well, let's be real and say 'Symon' learned) that even though you think you've put your cellphone onto mute, it can still ring it's strange funky tune... while you are taking your first ever funeral. Yep, embarrassing indeed (especially when he fumbled to turn the phone off and it rung a second time).
: : While talking about embarrassing moments last week, I can now join the list of women who have been asked if they're pregnant when they're not... rather funny at the time, but can play on your mind a bit later :)
: : I love the weekend... just saying (especially Sundays).
: : I know everyone says it, but seriously, where in the world do all of those missing socks go? Is there some sort of vortex where they all go and live happily together? I am sure that last week we lost at least 3 socks into the unknown.
: : Wearing your belt around your head can make you do strange things (proof above).
: : I'm really loving soup and fires and crochet blankets at the moment as the onset of Winter can be felt here in New Zealand.
: : Boo has an eye infection and needs a trip to the vets. I'm still planning on forcing one of our kids to become a veterinarian when they grow up so that we can save mega bucks (or the other options if they don't want to be a vet is a mechanic, dentist and electrician). No room for big career dreams in our household! JUST KIDDING... sort of.
: : We have a birthday in the house in two days time... and Symon is on birthday cake making duties!
: : Deep down I'm a real softy, and last week I found myself tearing up at some of the amazing acts of love I witnessed around about me. Loving others and giving to others is so much more gratifying that being focussed on yourself.
: : p.s. any theories on where missing socks go are most welcome...
