Day 578

Sometimes knives are sharp and I cut myself when cutting tomatoes for the lunches …

Sometimes I make the lunches only to realise that there is a free sausage sizzle at school …

Sometimes I am clumsy and drop plates and they break …

Sometimes my eyes and my body don’t coordinate and I stab myself under the acrylic fingernail with a fork as I unpack the dishwasher and it hurts like Chinese torture …

Sometimes I swear when these things happen …



Sometimes I am lucky enough to have a cleaner come and clean my home …

Sometimes I get to send my kids off to school in a car with someone else …

Sometimes I get to walk my dog around the lake with a friend …

Sometimes my dog rolls in poo as we walk and he stinks and I heave but my husband is home from work to wash it all off …

Sometimes I cheer when this happens …



Sometimes I spend my day doing washing and loads of hanging out …

Sometimes I spend my day cleaning out the fridge of smelly green festy food I left there before we went on holidays …

Sometimes I spend my day mixing cheer music and creating choreography ….

Sometimes I feel really good when all this finally happens …


Sometimes my husband runs me a bath …

Sometimes he forgets he is running me a bath and I run screaming down the hall and catch it just before it starts cascading over the edge …

Sometimes my kids think it’s funny that I scream …

Sometimes I go mental when this happens


Sometimes I drink champagne in the bath …

Sometimes I drink champagne and eat pizza in the bath …

Sometimes I drink champagne and eat pizza and watch a movie in the bath …

Sometimes I forget about the rest of the world when this happens…


Sometimes my kids and husband come in to check on me …

Sometimes they all come in one after the other and use the toilet while I soak even though there is a perfectly good toilet in the other bathroom …

Sometimes they bring me the phone and I have to talk to people while I’m naked …

Sometimes it annoys me when this happens …


Sometimes I spend hours in there …

Sometimes I get shrivelled up and become less deep fried fruit and more like a sun dried sultana …

Sometimes I leave a big dirty ring around my freshly cleaned bath …

Sometimes it doesn’t bother me when this happens …




Sometimes these things happen.

Sometimes they happen just yesterday.



I’m not complaining.

Nor am I bragging.

Sometimes stuff just happens.

What's happening with you?



Happy Saturday!

  1. WHY is it children suddenly have to use the toilet a MILLION times when you are trying to take a relaxing bath?

  2. My question is do you actually talk to the people while you are naked?

    I can't or maybe it's just won't speak to people on the phone while I'm naked....unless there is a lot of bubbles covering my nakedness or I am extremely comfortable with that person (somteimes both). Otherwise I get out of the bath and get some clothes on or get whoever brought me the phone to tell that person that I will call back later.

    Just more of my neurosis showing! LOL.

  3. I haz no trouble talking when naked, draw the line on the loo however.

    And when you have a totally "But Mum, you know I cannot lie" child they tell people on the phone: "
    Mum can't come to the phone right now, she is doing a poo..."

    Argh.

  4. LOL!!
    I find it awkward to talk while in the bath. One day a few years ago they brought the phone in at it was the school principal. I put the face cloth over my bits and ended the conversation quickly. IT was very uncomfortable. I have tried to tell my family NO but for some reason they just don't listen. They even bought me a waterproof phone for Mothers' Day one year. Sigh. Oh, and I have also talked while on the loo. But only when call going for ever and you can't hang up coz person is having a crisis but you really need to pee ... so i try and sneak one in ... I draw the line at flushing ...

  8. PMSL Leanne, yes no flushing when peeing in secret while on the phone, very uncuth. I rang my boss recently and was having trouble hearing him and he said sorry he was on the 'fish phone' I later found out it was a waterproof phone - god I hope he wasn't in the bath! Ick!

  9. LOL Suzi! That's funny. Boss in bath ... Ick indeed!!
    Re the TV in the bathroom .... I cheat and take a laptop in with a movie/DVD and pop it on a little folding table. I then bring it nice and close to the edge of the bath and put headphones on so I can hear the program over the top of the spa bubbles. Magic!
    So we're all agreed, no flushing?!
