Things I Know #90- So now it is Autumn and I hear the Foo Fighters

Hi Mother Nature, it seems you have not checked your calender and do not realise it is in fact now Autumn and the weather should be cooling down and not heating up to break more records.

Everything else I know this week is worthy of separate posts.  Like for example the excessive wearing of active wear, or afternoon school assemblies, the shocking driving skills some people possess or opal cards for school children.  However thanks to having to stuff around doing kindergarten homework I no longer have the time to brain dump today.

Instead I will leave you with these cool videos.

Apparently the internet exploded yesterday with an imminent announcement from the Foo Fighters.  Apparently they were breaking up and going their separate ways.  I in fact missed all the drama and only heard about it later on in the afternoon.



The announcement has to be one of the funniest things I have seen in ages, well played fooies!!



Then there was this video from the Oscars. I love this, so poignant at the moment.

That is all from me, I now have to relinquish my computer to year 2 kid to use for some kind of school thing which he is supposed to do every week but we haven't actually done yet!!

Things I Know #89= Heat wave



Mother Nature has given us one last (hopefully) blast of summer this week.

Hot days I can do.

Hot nights can go jump.

Uggh!!

I am a walking zombie this week thanks to it being way too hot to get a decent nights sleep.

Bring on autumn next week!!

Things I Know #87- ain't nobody perfect

I know lots lately.  Mainly I know I have missed parts of the online world.  I really hope I am back now after a very extended break.

This week my post is inspired by a certain event that happened yesterday.

So to the lady in the small car who felt it necessary to honk the horn and gesture at me because i was putting year 2 kid's seat belt on and the door was slightly open onto the road i say this - AIN'T NOBODY PERFECT!

While I would have loved to quote Justin Bieber  (disclaimer i am not a belieber i just happen to, although i hate to admit it, like this particular song) and tell you to "go and love yourself " I choose not too.




Ain't nobody perfect has definitely become a fave phrase of mine.  Maybe a few people could do with hearing it.  Like the delightful lady yesterday.

Yes the car door swung open onto the road more than it should have (I was parked on a hill and it was windy), but speeding in a school zone is in fact a crime and had the delightful lady been doing the speed limit we wouldn't be having this conversation.  What do you know-  AIN'T NOBODY PERFECT.




Sermon over for this week!!  Can I get an AMEN!!


Ps may we all please think nice thoughts and send positive vibes to the internet connection goblins!!

I am here.

I am here.

Ok sort of.

Ok maybe kinda not really but I will be.

Soon.

Like the second there is just the slightest sliver of time where the planets and moons align and the fates allow for me to spend just the slightest briefest second doing the old tap tap tap on the computer type of  writing thing.

There has to be a sliver soon.

Because change is in the air.  A certain Miss C and myself have some very cool secret squirrel business happening in the near future.  Keep your fingers crossed for some working internet and free time this week!!



In the meantime please take a journey down memory lane with me to a time when rollerskating was the coolest thing ever.  This clip has ignited many a memory from back in the day between friends lately.  I just love this song.


Catch up soon, promise.

Some of our Christmas Traditions

Ernie copied himself using our printer!!  Full credit to our preschool for the idea!!

Turns out Elves on the shelves poo red and green m&ms!!  Declared "funniest thing ever",!!  In 14 days our elf has not moved 3 times (luckily we had storms and he was unable to safely fly!!).  

Santa photo day at the Queen Victoria Building.  Forth year in a row for us!!  It is a definite must for us although nest year I will go back to going in November!!  Never again ever will I go in December!!  So busy but totally worth it!!  Luckily Ernie left all three boys new clothes to wear as it turns out not one of them had anything decent to wear out of the house!!  

Stunning tree.


I am in awe of the tree once again, however I couldn't help but observe the new dangly fishing rod type decorations look like a cats ultimate toy!!


This is one of my fave Christmas songs.  Back in the days before the www I used to hang out to hear this song on the radio, now thanks to the tube and more recently spotify I can hear it whenever I want!!

Linking up a few of my families Christmas traditions with AliciaKirsty and Trish.

Things I Know #86- Hang In There

6 DAYS UNTIL SCHOOL HOLIDAYS START

This time next week people, this time next week!!

Never has something been so close and yet so far away!!

We are a house of meltdown, it ain't pretty.

I am still in complete denial that next week life as we have known it for the last 2 years will change and a new chapter begins.

Two kids at big school.  Still hasn't sunk in!!  It probably will next week when we have "meet the class and teacher day".






Hang in there!!  We've got this!!
