kate5kiwis: twirling awound and awound in sookles...


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

twirling awound and awound in sookles...

in the absence of anything remotely sensible (although a sensible diet is *hardly* what ya get around here) we have a sort of Cut-And-Paste-Part-Of-An-Email-And-Call-It-A-Blog-Post kinda post. except the PSs. the PSs i wrote speshally for here lol:

ha!!! i've had one of THOSE days where ya arrive at the gym rather late and so there's only the cross-trainer left... at which point ya get the blonde-brainwave to do *thirty* minutes non-stop on the blessed machine... and nearly need a resuscitation... then ya *forget* to put the whole week's rubbish out at the gate... and have to negotiate food shopping at push'n'shove *without* the list cos ya've lost it... and can *not* remember what ya wanted... and ya get to the hair cutters with three-would-be-styley-lads... but the hair cutters send ya home again to wash yer kids' hair... and so ya arrive home again to find that it's STORMED on two loads of today's washing *and* the day-before-yesterday's washing too... and so you sort of drift aimlessly from pile to pile... until ya decide to make mushrooms in lime-infused avocado oil... and then ya remember dinner... so ya whang poh-tay-tohs (which y'are gonna be avoiding) into the oven... and think about making a delish greek salad to go with (cos ya did remember *those* ingredients at push'n'shove)... while the other oven that ya sprayed three weeks ago and *still* haven't wiped out continues its self-cleaning manoeuvre... and you go off and sew another apron... X

PS i know i *say* i'm only writing to myself here, but please oh please tell me you know *someone* else out there who has days like this too?

PPS huge apologies for my lack of Return-Comment-Love here lately... i have only uncountable *blonde* excuses... i'll endeavour to be a sweet reciproKATIE today X

All those endorphins are pinging around your brain. Ping! Ping! Ping!

I hate forgetting the list. I always forget something vital. And I thought cleaning the oven was turning it up to 500 and letting it bake everything off for a coupla hours. Viola -- wipe the ash out and it's clean. Sort of.

Tomorrow will be better? :)

Ah... and your point is??? Mate, this aint blonde, this is living!! Sounds like a fairly routine day in the life of Ang ... last Friday forgot to put the rubblish out, so we are shoving this weeks rubbish in the already full bin from last week... always write a list but never shop to it, and washing stays on the line through rain hail and shine, then gets pulled in when hubby cant find any undies for work!! Take heart my dear, you are in good company x

Sounds like most of my days. I seem to trail through them in a disorganised fashion, forgetting this and that and making life unnecessarily difficult for myself.

But these days I am so used to them they don't affect me at all - I am immune to the chaos around me and just flutter through it oblivious.

Hope your Thursday is better! Thursdays usually are!

Oh sweetie! I have days like that all the time. The only difference is that you actually seemed to accomplish a few things in the midst of it. Me.. I get a book and give up.

Laura? You wipe the ash out?

Aw Katie! What happened to your washing zen?! Never mind...
tee hee.....last time I took my kiddos for a hair cut at the el cheapo joint they asked me if they'd washed their hair that day. I said no...then they said when did they last wash their hair? I couldn't remember for the life of me. The lady gave me a *look*...so I laughed and said I was a busy mamma of three and had plenty of other more important things to remember lol. (she cut their hair and commented that it felt clean enough. ahem.)

Mama said there'd be days like this...

Things are pretty hectic around here at the moment too. We're doing a huge clean-up and have only gotten to the point where everything is at its messiest. I'm feeling so overwhelmed!

Well I've totally hit rock bottom... I'm sitting here staring at the computer screen because I can't remember the thing I thought I must remember to tell Katie cos it would cheer her up no end. Nope. Still can't remember it.

One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.
