Today I had to take K to buy some school shoes
This is generally a nightmare of epic proportions as she hates all shoes and only ever likes a certain type of canvas tennis shoe made in Thailand.....
however all other years have seen us traipsing through every shoe shop on the continent and still coming away empty handed
Walked into the shop, AND it was payless and less than $50, and walked out in 5 mins WITH a pair of school shoes that she LIKED....
I am in shock
Aside from that I have been semi productive in that I have bleached all the used to be white things white again
And sewn up school skirts that needed doing
And thats about it
Energy levels are very low and I still want to sleep for a week
Had a chat to sister while putting her on the plane home yesterday about her needing to get down as much as possible now, for her sake......this was a hitting home unpleasant thing
Tahni is coming home on Wednesday for a couple of days so that is cool too
Back to the orifice for a busy week of crap tomorrow
Mum did have several phone calls in response to ad in the Herald
Have been speaking to lost son in Germany...I sent him chocolate the other week and it cost me $33 postage! To send $10 worth of chocolate and 2 tubes of zit cream....hee hee.....but he is missing chocolate and is too stingey to buy any for himself
So mummy is cool....
Shelli is still intact and not cutting, feeling ok. We will see how she goes back at school hmmm.
She has a boyfriend so that is distracting for her I suppose. Hmmmmm
She also now has her nose pierced on both sides because I am a sucker
Ex husband has bought a house now.....not wasting anytime is he. It does not have a spare room for my girls. They are not impressed much.
I am on auto pilot and that suits me just fine for now
And the beat goes on......la de da di dah
