“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

a little bleagh-onto-the-screen moment aka the once-was-blogger uploads her flip-top head

cos BAM!!! five weeks ago, skool started. so this year i'm working half time + one hour, which is perfickly perfect for Keeping Skool @ Skool (it's the new mantra). but ooooof, two kids have three nights a week in rehearsals + sunday morning orchestra rehearsal for the skool show + mummy/woozie are making costumes, there is a piano lesson, a clarinet lesson, a volleyball game, manchoir, iconz nite, two skool meetings for BD, a golf nite, large piles of undone homework, an impending basketball game, and since skool started we've spent three weekends doing the pack-up-and-travel. mmm, BD's beloved pop has passed away, and my dahling bro-and-sis-and-still-in-tummy-bubba have been here!!!!! so our emotions have been all over the show. i must've been clenching my teeth in my sleep cos now one jaw hinge feels like it has arthritis. and i have hayfever. yep, me 'ead's 'angin' awf. and i have about 200 photos to upload.

ha, as i type, there is a pretty little french convo going on between charlie and woozie!

we did get to the supermarché tonight though, which is a good thing, cos apparently ya can't survive on just banana cake all day. and i made a super-boring happy chicken-and-frozen-veggie stir fry on basmati rice for dins, and everyone loved it. ah, so easy to please. and today i also made a super-de-dooper phil de blancs thing for my maths kiddos tomoz, cos they need a wee chat about subtraction with regrouping. and although the skool computers are still driving me bonkers cos they keep disappearing kids stuffs, the fabric kiddos are totally fabby, and my science kiddos are remembering all their vocab words cos they made up a very cool rap about MRSCGREN, and also i have little white daisy stickers on my toenails. so the glass is actually pretty half full. but the wine glass isn't, cos we did the FebFast.

phew, head uploaded X
