I wasn't sure I'd make it to my own party this week . There are so many things going on here that if I can find 3 seconds to scratch myself it's a miracle. I've neglected your blogs, my blogs and my emails for the last week in a vain attempt to try and catch up with other things and to minimise stress. It's not working ! Thank goodness for the opportunity to kick back and focus on a bright spot in my week.
Or so I thought. Little P has been sleeping over the last couple of nights and I thought I'd sneak in this post before he got up this morning and before I went to work but he just surprised me with an early morning wake up call. I walked back into the kitchen to find him wide awake and wanting to play cars.
I'm woefully out of practice with the "writing a post and simultaneously playing with a child" juggle. As I write he's sitting next to me on my I pad doing drawing asking me questions approximately every 8 seconds. He's also playing fruit ninja (better than I do ) and destroying my carefully thought out bakery game.
For my birthday last year nephew of pyjamas and his girlfriend gave me a gift voucher for T2 and I finally got there a couple of weeks ago to spend it. For the uninitiated T2 is a shop that sells every single tea related thing imaginable including, you guessed it, about a bajillion different types of tea.
The problem when you go to this store is working out exactly what you want to buy. I drink a lot of tea. Normal tea. Black tea. Occasionally Green tea. But this store has funky teas in every imaginable flavour.
I went nuts. This is "take a second mortgage out on your house to buy it" kind of tea. In the end I spent a small fortune. (and all because I cant buy just one of anything !)
I've been mixing the chocolate chip chai and toffee (doesn't sound much like a cup of tea does it? Sounds more like dessert!) The green rose tea is another fave. Mr. P snaffled the peppermint and took it to work .
I even went out and bought a tea glass so I can look ultra classy while I'm sipping on my tea.
So that's my favourite thing this week. Funky Tea. pop on over any time for a cuppa. I have plenty to go around!
I come from the Land Down Under where the two primary food groups are Vegemite and Tim Tams. If you haven’t tried Vegemite you really haven’t lived. I highly recommend you run out and get some and slather it on a piece of bread about an inch thick. I promise you'll love it. I frequently eat vegemite sandwiches or coco pops for tea because after a full day of hanging out with the pre- school crowd in my day job, I usually can’t recall my own name much less cook dinner. It’s OK there are no actual kids living in my house so I’m only neglecting grownups.
Not doing housework, windows or my own grocery shopping frees up my spare time so I can quilt, sew , blog, attempt to bake and lay on my lounge playing games on my Ipad. I only iron when I need to press quilt seams. I only wash when we’re in imminent danger of running out of clean undies. In fact once my husband had to draw me a map so I could find the laundry.
My blog is a random place where I document my (mis)adventures, occasionally chuck in a swear word or two and vent my spleen about all manner of things. This is a place only for the very brave or slightly insane. Welcome.
