Sodden and Stir Crazy

Long Weekends = perfect for crafty crowns and torturing the puppy

It's 5pm on Monday at the end of the long weekend. 

In our case it's the 4th day of the long weekend because the KATs had a pupil free day on our 'enjoyment' has been only enhanced by that one extra day of togetherness.

Can you detect my actual level of 'joy' from the tone of this post?

I love my KATs but by golly if it wasn't so bloody wet outside I'd be turfing them to the curb!  Clearly God hasn't grasped the concept that wet weather and long weekends should be mutually exclusive...especially where children and parents are concerned!!!!

We've got about 3hrs before they'll all be tucked up intact in their for evidentiary purposes here's some photographic evidence that I have attempted to be productive this weekend.

Yes, copious amounts of ice cream and chocolate sauce have been consumed but I deserve it goddamit!!!!

Yes the puzzle is upside down but it's still a puzzle which I get points for!!

Wet weather = good time to organize the dustables

More dustables and a home for my wallpaper collection!

Gumboots were well worn and look so lovely outside the new front door!!!

Truly a family of tossers in our Hunter boots (mine are adjustable for my chubby calves)

Time for a Home B fix but only after making the chocky self-saucing pud

Too wet to put the recycleables out in their bins!!!!
Given that it's only my family and friends who read my blog - hope you all had a good weekend:)

Saint Mike is in Ohio visiting his sister....her husband is due for a bone marrow transplant on Tuesday so right now is having his immune system killed off (literally) by Chemo...we are praying for him!  He's been trying to take her mind off their ordeal by plying her with wine and entertaining her twins...he's heading back to Toronto tomorrow to spend the remainder of the week visiting his mum in hospital.

I've been thinking of stopping my blog as most days it feels like I'm blogging to nowhere....the only reason I haven't stopped is that it's illuminating for our distant families as to what the KATs get up to and what's going on in my complex mind:)

Bummer, ending on a downer...thoughts of my sick brother-in-law and my ailing mother-in-law have invaded my mind...time to put the chocky pudding in the oven!!!



  1. Im so disorientated having Peter home for 4 days and John home for 3 I forgot to put the bins out last night.

    We've been out twice today once to Hannah's cake shop and once to the DVD store. Cooked scones this afternoon and watched the lawn turn into a pool.

    Love the gumboots!


  2. Oh Lib, don't give up! I always enjoy your posts. I hope your BIL's surgery is successful. What a worrying time for you all. J x

  3. Bloody miserable weather. You did a good job!!

    Don't shut down, Lib. Just don't. x

  4. Wonder if it helps to know we had a similar painful weekend. Think multiple wake up calls during the night - thurs right through to monday night (after all, why would you miss an opportunity?). The icing on the cake (so to speak) was the vomit and high temperatures that attended the 3am wake up call friday night (no panadol in sight); of course this came after a friday that included a 4 hour return trip to melbourne, a $78 parking fee (not a fine) and a 6am start - timing is everything. Topped off by a screeching halt on the freeway yesterday and a threat to throw the Lego big book of ideas out the window if there was one more instance of bickering from the back seat. You are not alone :)

  5. i know i love the posts being so god damn awful at phone calls or any form of communication, o love hearing how Kat life is going along.. In comparison to us you won the Parent of the Long Weekend award. We just invited more children over so we didnt have to play! ( I did help build a fort over Ronans bed though) OUr thoughts are with Mike and his family and i love this photo - took me a minute to find the puppy :)

  6. We should do coffee one day after dropping the kids..

    I too am driven mad by my children and often think I am the only Mum that bribes the to leave me alone with choccy donuts and a DVD in the OTHER room..

    and too often think to stop blogging.. never sure if anyone is reading but I have pulled back and do it for me.. chat about what I want too and thats better.. don't go though.. I would miss you x


I looooooove comments....thank you for taking the time :)
