a date to remember

hard to believe that it has been 3 weeks since my last post. i seem to be ultra busy but getting nowhere! i am loving my night fill job at Big W but wish it was a more permanent thing. i don't like having to wait by the phone but i guess it is better than nothing. the pay is a third that of relief teaching but it is a no thinking job, just what i need right now. apart from night fill and relief teaching i have been trying to keep up with making stock for the cottage and filling an order for Christmas peg dolls.
it is so much fun making these sweet pegs but time consuming...i have so many ideas for Christmas stock but so little time.
in amongst all of this work i still have to run the house...keep up with the cleaning, cooking , shopping etc... and be a shoulder to cry on for mick who is going through a low point. i just wish i knew the future would be fine but at the moment it is just one big ball of stress.
anyhow, some good news to cheer us up is that my sister Anita is coming home from London for good!! she has been gone for over 7 years and we have missed her so much. it will be nice to have her home and start working towards a joint venture. she is a very creative soul, just wish she was home right now.
and today marks 12 years since mick and i first met here in Brisbane on a blind date. my sister Narelle thought that we would make a great couple and she was right...12 years on here we are with 10 years of marriage, 3 kids, 2 cars and a mortgage!
that is why Halloween will always be special to me.
best go and work on one of the many things i want to make this week...

You've been away and busy! Love to have you back! Though I really can relate to your duty as a working and loving mom, and wife, and you're doing real great! And the peg dolls, how adorable are they?
