I've learnt quite a few things this week.
I've learnt that our cat Barney has no sense of personal space. If one of us is lying on our bed, he always sits on us like this (or will try to suffocate one of the kids in their beds like this).
I've learnt the following things when your oven catches on fire while you are trying to bake your amazing friends delicious baked cheesecake...
1. Know where your fire extinguisher is located BEFORE you need it.
2. Even though you teach your kids fire safety, this does not mean they won't all rush into your tiny kitchen to watch the oven on fire and cheer you on as you try to figure out how to use your brand new fire extinguisher (that you finally found hidden at the bottom of your pantry behind a million tablecloths and aprons).
3. Yes, your baked cheesecake will have a smokey, fire extinguisher-type flavour... probably not a popular taste that guests will appreciate.
4. Even though you're a blogger, you can give yourself a pat on the back for not even thinking of taking a photo of your flaming oven until well after the event is over. Yusss! Safety first people!
I've learnt that using the dog as an excuse for buying a cow patterned rug probably isn't the most convincing excuse. Seriously, they make a good match though, don't you reckon??
I've learnt that sitting in the cheap seats with my family to watch our local fireworks display was a pretty amazing idea... cheap, fun and cheap.
Pretty spectacular huh?!?
Just love this pic of my boys enjoying the fresh air and being outdoors together away from technology under a sleepingbag...
Yup, it's amazing what you learn in everyday life.
