Tonight I started working again...

Yes I think I'm ready...
Yes I think I quite want to, quite...
But boy it's hard to sit down in front of the pc and do something other than read blogs, or feel like reading a book, or getting on with the next project or ANYTHING else!!

I had an interesting chat with my SIL today and it reminded me of the following quote from Dr Suess' Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are:

When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad...
you should do what I do!

Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you're really quite lucky!
Some people are much more...
oh, ever so much more...
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!"

Do we ever really realise how lucky we are?  Each night I think of all the things I'm thankful for...and each night I wonder how many things I forget and still take for granted...

Today's Highlights:
- Anya's response to:  "Wow, that great colouring in Anya!  Who's a clever girl?" --- "I am!" she said hiding her pleased little face and shy smile... Usually it's just a shy grin with "No I'm not!"
- Arranging a shopping date with a friend!

I really don't enjoy clothes shopping much for many reasons... but it will be fun going on an outing with a friend and expanding my current wearable wardrobe of one pair of jeans and two tops!

And I've decided that on top of everything else I want to learn to crotchet!  Might have to put that one off for a little while!

Sleep tight


  1. I am just loving your posts Leonie. So refreshing to read such purposefully positive stuff!! I need to get that book. Go you with getting back to work! Inspiring! Anya, what a little sweetie. Makes me smile!

  2. Hi Leonie nice to meet you. What sweet girls you have, and those cupcakes look amazing! We play games regularly with my cousin and his wife and I also play with some mums from school. I'd really recommend setting up a group with other mummies if you can as it's such a nice thing to do. The only problem is that we have to keep it to four of us, as so many games don't work with more people.

    You should come along to Simone's bloggy tea party next Wednesday. I'll be there and we can talk geeky games if you like ;o)


  4. Did you learn to crochet?
    Did you see on my 100 challenges that it is one of the challenges I've set myself!
    Are you an Auckland blogger?


Thanks for stopping by - it brightens my day!
