My son is out of bed.

A small thing, but hey, it's early.

Ooh, when's your birthday maya? Mine's also shortly after Mother's Day - Mum went into labour with me on Mother's Day :)

It’s the 17th. My niece is the 7th, I’m the 17th and then my dad is the 27th :lol: almost my best friend has her birthday on the 13th, my uncle on the 1st and my cousin on the 18th. May is a busy month around here.

I’m happy because my big kid has improved spelling wise in the last term. The teachers commented on the improving in writing and spelling. (He is dyslexic and had a language delay and a other things so this is big). All because he’s slowed down and is taking his time and asking questions if he doesn’t understand something.

It's a busy one in our family too (what were people celebrating 9 months before May, I wonder?!) Quite a few cousins, as well as a childhood pal and my work BFF.

It's a big one for milestones this year - I'm 30 on the 15th and my Nan is 90 a week later :)

I’m happy as a book I wanted to read is on special. And a big special too, not just the maybe $4-5 drop 6-12 months after release. From $20 (which is expensive for a “new” author for an ebook) to $2.99.

{Book is Polaris Rising in case you are wondering}

My big girl arrived home safely for the weekend - you don't realise what joy it is to have the whole family together until they aren't.

And I have put my order in for Poh's pancakes for Mother's Day breakfast.

(there is no requirement for the syrup faff - just the pancakes will suffice)

I’m going to blood bank today to donate plasma.  My second time.  I’m from a blood bank family and before the last one I hadn't  been in 6 years.  My youngest is 10 so I can’t put it on pregnancy.

After putting it off for years, yesterday I had a colonoscopy. I’ve had them before but developed a bit of a phobia about the preparation. I finally booked it, DD got sick and I had to postpone.

And yesterday I finally did it! And it was all clear which is a huge relief too.

Rewarding myself with a day on the couch watching Netflix.

I’m happy as the chai spice mix I made to add to the tea leave in my tea pot turned out perfect and is super tasty.

I had a really wonderful experience at Coles the other day. Checkout Person was friendly, efficient and packed my bags beautifully. I’d never seen her before, so I asked if she was new but it just wasn’t a regular day for her. So, I sent through a form commending her and they’ve replied saying they will address through store manager and regional manager. I hope she gets a little something extra out of it because she was just so nice and good at her job.

I try so hard to remember to praise good service instead of just complaining all the time. Actually I sent it in the car park because I didn’t want to forget her name.

Having all of my family together, even if it is just for the weekend.

DD1's boyfriend also spent the afternoon with us and we all had curries together for dinner and then played a board game.

Early birthday present - a lovely ring I picked out awhile ago - joint present from DP/parents - arrived in the post today. I ordered it online so hadn't seen it in the flesh and was opening the ring box with mild trepidation but I love, love, love it!

Me too - we're quick to complain when things don't go well but often forget to praise when they do.

I had a great experience at the Alfred awhile ago when I was ill with gallstones and on my way out approached the service desk to pass that on. When I said I wanted to give some feedback the staff member gave a wary "yes, of course" and then looked so supremely delighted when I said that it was positive feedback, not negative!

Dad bought an extra Easter egg (cherry ripe). He doesn’t like it and neither does anyone else so I got it. Woohoo.

Dd and I are sharing the Lindt ones right now.

Okay, DD just needed resettling and is alseep on the bed next to me. Obviously I can't move now, so definitely can't wash my hair or do the washing!

Kadoodle has a miscreant wombat and stepped in wombat poo.  That's enough to make any EBer's day happy.

(off to find a dictionary to look up  the word miscreant)

ETA, it means depraved, wretched
