It's been a couple of weeks since my last post. I'm a bit random like that. I'll blame it on my studies, for good reason! I'm studying for an MBA and as the end of term approaches things get pretty hectic. I have to keep going to work (to pay the mortgage) and I need to sleep (occasionally) so my house, my partner, my kids and my blog get neglected...
Lucky my kids are grown ups who know how to drive, cook (sort of), and supervise themselves. Wish they were more adept at cleaning, washing dishes, gardening and putting things back where they found them. I think I failed in teaching them that stuff!
So just to catch up, this is what I would have written about during the past few weeks, if I'd had time...
After months of waiting, the day finally arrived! Mum, her friend Joan and I went to see Mary Poppins. It was awesome! If you've wanted to go, but haven't yet... Just do it! Before it closes mid next month. It is worth every cent, and every minute.
I'm godmother to an adorable little girl with the biggest brown eyes you have ever seen. She turned five early this month. She lives less than 10 mins from my house, and I haven't been around to visit. I didn't even call to wish her a happy birthday. Epic fail!
I finally met my baby son's new girlfriend... about two weeks ago. I don't think she's been back to our house since. I think she's still on the scene, but I haven't thought to ask. Another epic fail!
Last Saturday I took time out from studying to meet two friends for coffee at the local shopping mall. One thing is certain in life, you can never have too much coffee. A second thing, always make time for your friends. Anyway, after driving around the carpark for 15 mins I contemplated driving back home, only then did I find a spot to park. Why so many people at the shops? Surely the entire population are not out Christmas shopping already... It's only November people! Then and there I made the decision not to return to the shops until after C-day. I've decided to do all my Christmas shopping online. (Naturally, I haven't started yet)
That's pretty much my life in the past two weeks, besides assignments and exam study. My house looks like noone lives here, again. Gardens are a mess, grass full of weeds, and a half-renovated family room... Now full of the contents of one adult child's bedroom after he decided to clean his room out, but didn't have anywhere to put the junk... Did someone say council clean up?
Yesterday marked the end of my studying for this year. I celebrated with an exam. Fun. Not. The exam was tough and I'm not confident of my results. All I can do is cross my fingers and hope the lecturer gets my paper mixed up with one completed by someone smarter than me. Wish me luck.
