Interesting Interests…

Hello readers! How are you on this fine Monday evening? I have just finished dinner and now i am full as a goog!
So here i sit, reflecting back on our dinner time conversation with the kids, and i thought i would share some of it with you folk!
First of all ,we (well, the kids) discussed how they didn’t like the pasta sauce i used on their pasta. (must remember to add that to the big long list of foods they DON’T like)
After the complaints about my cooking, my eldest son informs me that he would like to take up soccer. I wasn’t suprised really, as he had bought it up once before, but at the time, he was too young to join any teams in our area, so it was kind of filed away “to be discussed later”.
Well, apparantly he is old enough to join a team now, so looks like i’m gonna have to start looking around for places that have junior soccer teams,to enroll him into. I’m gonna be a soccer mum!!! Guess this means i’ll have to sit through countless saturday morning games, rain ,hail and shine, watching my little darling kicking goals and scoring hoops or whatever they do in soccer. oh boy, can’t wait!

Speaking of my sons interests, he also informed me that he would very much like to learn how to play an instrument! Yep, my son loves music, and has often told me that he wants to take up playing one thing or another! First it was the guitar, then the drums, then the keyboard. Well this week, he has informed me that he wants to learn how to play …the bagpipes.
I personally can’t say I’ve ever tried the bagpipes myself, but it looks pretty difficult. I told him if he still wants to learn the bagpipes by Christmas time, Santa might have to get him some. (can we all take a moment to cross our fingers and pray he outgrows this one..for the sake of my sanity and my ear drums!!!)
Why do boys have to like noisy things for?? Why can’t they be more like my daughter, who would happily spend hours threading beads onto string, or stickytaping the cats legs together or something??? another one of lifes mysteries i guess!

Well after we discussed these things we had pretty much finished our meal (well, the kids had their very best try but were full up …) so we then cleared the table and now the kids are getting ready for bed.

I don’t know about you, but i am absolutely worn out!

Well in saying that, i should go finish getting the kids ready for bed,then get their school stuff ready and THEN mummy can sit down and reflect some more on the days events.

Thanks for stopping by guys, hopefully i shall find the time to blog again soon!

Take care ,

Ready to write…??

Well, i have sent the kids to their rooms to play..trying to get a little sanity so i can get back into my writing! cup of tea- check. heater on- check. comfy pillow- WHERES MY COMFY PILLOW?????

<few moments later > ok Comfy pillow- check!!

Right- so now what? I have 2 story ideas on the go, the plan is to try to merge them together somehow, to make one fantastic story- is that even possible?

I’m starting to doubt myself- who will even read it if i go to all this effort writing it?

I guess it doesn’t really matter if it never sees the light of day, the important thing is, just to get it down on paper (or on a word doc in my case) – just so i can get my brain moving.

It’s funny how your brain starts to “shut down” after years of thinking things like “did i buy cereal this week? How long have i got untill school gets out? What can i make for dinner (that the kids will actually eat)? Where have all the socks gone? and other mysteries…

If i was to base a story on all these things, it wouldn’t take long before the reader gets bored,and uses the pages to line their guinea pig cage or similar.

In saying this, i guess anything i write is still useful- to someone (some THING) – i just HOPE that i can entertain someone with my words..even for a moment.
That’s what i believe i was put on this lovely earth to do- to make people feel something 🙂

Well, it’s been awesome chatting with u all again, but i really must get my “writing thang” on- before i lose the urge (or before the kids come back out of their rooms) ..

Til’ next time ,
Toodles 😉

Well here we are

Hi guys, and welcome to my first ever blog entry!

I had so much i wanted to write about, but time is of the essence. According to my scientific research, i have about 3 minutes of your attention before your mind will start wandering off, thinking about what clothes your going to wear tomorrow or if you remembered to put cat food on your shopping list.

Speaking of cats, my tarty little ball of fluff had her kittens today! A little bit sooner than expected, but they are here never the less. They’re terribly cute (as kittens usually are) ,so it’s going to be hard to give them to new families when theyr old enough. My daughter has already “told me” she is planning on keeping them! And so it begins..!

Well my 3 minutes are almost up,and your already fidgeting with your hand on the mouse, ready to play angry birds on google + (or is that just me??) – so…

Til next time,

Be good to yourself!
