Bits n Pieces …

Ugh! I started this post nearly 2 weeks ago!

Then I had TAFE and work and kids and … life got in the way.

And then on Saturday evening there was a large fire just up the road and our local internet crashed. When it was still down I reported the issue to Telstra. They said it would be rectified in 48-72 hrs. I gave them 72hrs {almost to the minute 😉 heehee} and rang again this afternoon … Turns out everyone else’s was restored Monday. Ours was fixed after 1 1/2 hrs on the phone and a LOT of cajolling on my part :-/

Anyhow … here is what I was sayin’ :
Did anyone catch the new series with Nina Proudman Asher Keddie in it? ?
I wasn’t going to as I am still mourning Offspring. But it was a slow night and I thought what the hell … I didn’t mind it.
The only thing I didn’t really like in the pilot was the repetitive phrase “Across it” They used it 3 times in the first couple of minutes.
Not a great phrase and very noticeable. On the whole I didn’t mind it tho, and I’ll watch it again 🙂
And here is where I got up to lol :
since I’ve now caught another episode, I still think it’s ok. It’s not knocking my socks off, but I guess I am still comparing it to her other work … AND they friggin said “Across it” again!!! ARGH!

I have been so busy lately!! Big working weeks, TAFE placements and working on assessments for it at night as well as running round after the kids means Kate is one tired little chicken …
We had a ladies night at work tonight and I have not long gotten home from hosting a demo table *yawn* I work in the paint dept {which I adore!} and I demonstrated how I make my own chalk paint! Fun!!

Speaking of “Chicken”, Mr.5 has started calling me “Chicken” It’s so cute!!! He uses the cutest tone. And sometimes turns it into “My little chicken” Love his guts! He is such a little character 😀

Mr.8 came home yesterday bursting with pride!
He set himself a goal of being awarded a “Bronze Medallion” this year. To my knowledge there’s only 2 been awarded since the school opened 4yrs ago. To get one you have to obtain 4 purple merit certificates in one month which earns you a “Principal’s Award” … 10 Principal’s awards earns you a Bronze Medallion. And he did it! With a month to spare! 😀 They told him he is the youngest to get one! He is so proud of himself and I couldn’t be prouder of him either! Love his guts!

Anyhow, I will do a proper post over the weekend … one with pictures an’ all! 😉
