So Much to Say so little time..

I have been pushing aside my blog entries to a small corner of my brain at the moment because there is alot going on in the Davey household . I am franticly dealing with real estate agents, finance brokers - back and forth,back and forth - my head is just about to swivel off. We are hoping to bid this weekend at the house of our miniscule dreams so ofcourse comes with that is a truckload of anxiety, precise organisation and dealing with agents that never call you back. I am trying to not get too excited , I havent thought out in my head where all our furniture will go AT ALL. Haven't dreamt of knocking out walls or buying pieces of furniture either!! Let's face it, anyone who knows anything about the Melbourne Real Estate Market knows that property prices are going through the roof at the moment so there is a high chance we will miss out on this property and begin the search again. And Again. This has occupied the better part of my days for two weeks now - Can you tell??????????

I have also been facing the trials and tribulations of a new preppy who seems to be loving school but not loving the little girl in her class who keeps telling her that she "hates her" and refuses to let my daughter play with her.... ( why would you want to play with a five year bully/nasty/brat anyway????? ) and trying to deal with " but mum she squeezes my hand until it goes really red and then just smiles at me". AAAAAAAAh to dob or not to dob??? Let them work it out??? Bound to happen at school right? maybe I should just go up to the little girl in question and quietly whisper in her ear "Santas not real you know"..............

Anyhoo enough of me whinging but thats what has been swirling around my head for the past fortnight so to get some light relief I purchased some beautiful Vintage Buttons from the camberwell Market on Sunday.

I am a real sucker for buttons and thought my collection needed some filling. And how could I resist them??? Hoping to show hat I will do with them in the near future.
We also celebrated my best friends sons fifth birthday at the Collingwood childrens farm. Oh what fun had by all - maybe not the animals though - not sure if the guinea pigs liked being squished in tiny excitable hands ??? The ducks and chickens may have liked being chased......I also proved to be popular with a particular goat - that was special!!!
The scones with jam and cream and gemmys special fudge cupcakes seemed to be the highlight of the day. OH and Saffys insistance on bumshuffling through the chicken poo on the ground was also good for light entertainment.

Time to get back to hassling agents - borriiinnngggggggg.

Things that make you go mmmmm??????

There have been a few things that have happened this week that have had some measurable importance to mention in this blog. Some great - we sold our house!! Yippee!!! Two weeks before Auction - Oh so pleased!

Some not so great - Some blind-sighted driver in an effing fwd backed into me because they didnt see me - No Shit sherlock they were probably to busy thinking " Aren't I the coolest person because I drive a fwd and I own the road..."

Some things that make me fume...

Enjoy some Mother Guilt Everyone - if you haven't had your serve today , please , read THIS

Well that made my day because now my bottle fed children won't only be asthmatic, obese, and have a much poorer immune system compared to their breast fed counter parts but they will also have a life of struggling to get better exam results and oh-my-lord who knows what kind of job prospects they will have??????
This makes me so angry I want to sssccccrrreeeeeeeaaaaammmmmmmmm

Times are changin'

Well, I am officially a parent of a school child.
I can assure many an issue has come along with that tag. The first day of school was filled with anxiety and excitement.(me ofcourse).

Clean Uniform - check.
All clothes tagged with name - check
Healthy lunch packed - check (need to make a good impression and show that my child does'nt really live on spaghetti bolognese,mangoes and vegemite sandwiches.)
Hair scraped back into plaits - check
Hat and Back pack on - check
Super Excited child - check

We are off!

When the school bell rang I nearly dry reached.
Assembly - eeuuww memories.... All good so far - no tears- no whines and happily sitting with class on basketball court come mini playground. Phew. Time to go with teacher (who vaguely resembles a disney princess in casual attire - she's a winner already) AND OFF SHE GOES.......

Wow no tears, no running back just a quick cuddle,kiss and a goodbye and that was it. I even held it together - pride was bursting out of me - And so is the beginning of the school year.

A new chapter in our lives - new people to meet and DEFINATELY more peace at home between the hours of 9 and 3.30 - thank god. I have already met the 'super-friendly-social-calender-organiser-mum' who has got my number to organise some "drinky-poos" - as she so poeticly put it. I forgot to mention that I may get a migraine after one shandy but hey we'll leave that information privvy for a while.

Phew - here's to the next twelve years....
