The boys are are playing blocks and trains with DD. She is loving having them home and I'm.loving being able to drink a coffee!

She even sits with them and eats her lunch like a big girl 😭

My eldest went to the movies with his girlfriend and then lunch after. He's 11 and it's his first date. Pretty cute.

I just got notification of when my kids are training for their respective sports for the Winter season.  This changes every term and the emails have suggested that they  have very little overlap with their sports and I can mostly make drop offs with DP doing pick ups.  This sounds trivial and very first world stuff but it makes my life much easier!!!

I'm part of a Buy Nothing group for my suburb, and a lady with 2 yo twin boys posted asking if anyone had wooden trains.
I've never gotten to the keyboard so fast, because OH YES I DID, and my DS doesn't look at them anymore and was quite happy for them to go.

So she came by, and I gave her the train engines, the carriages, the roundhouse, a Sodor Dynamite piece, two tin suitcase container things to keep them in, a Thomas backpack and three Thomas playmats, and she pushed the twin pram off into the distance with both boys clutching a playmat each, saying "Toot toot!" to each other.

Win win!

I’ve discovered you can block channels in the foxtel under parental guidance. Ha take that PIL. No more sneakily letting kids stay plastered to the damned tv while I’m out when I said they were not to watch anymore today.

I got A reserve seats to Khalid's second show in Sydney. It's weird they sell tickets 8 months in advance though - hope I don't forget!

Lucky duck.

I’ve been able to say I was right to ds about his writing workshop.

Last night I went to the doctor feeling REALLY bad. He was concerned about me being home alone and said I needed to have someone stay with me.

I don’t live near any of my family and called my sister to see if she could come (a bit over an hour drive) as she normally works from home Wednesday’s anyway) but she had to go to Sydney today. I felt so alone and cried, my other sister would be too drunk to drive and dad has shingles.

So I called the friend from work who let the kids and I stay when XH took my keys. She said come straight here then she put me to bed and checked on me through the night. Then this morning she thanked me for calling her. I felt so much less alone.

One of my friends has had no luck in the love stakes and she's just started talking to someone and they seem genuinely nice and are getting on well.
We were maybe 19 the last time I was able to be genuinely happy for her having met someone instead of pulling a face when she described their behaviour.
I really hope it works out. It would be awesome for her to meet someone who makes her feel good even if it is only a fling or even friendship. So she realises other people can see she's a great person.

Now I've written that I'm worried he's probably a charming serial killer like the guy in You.

I had a good day.
Podiatrist was excellent and gave good advice and I’m optimistic about my foot now
I bought 3 work tops and 2 singlets! And some leggings. That’s a huge thing for me, I hate shopping. Seems the fashion for winter is high waisted pants and vintage blouses, which suits my shape. Now I have a new top for Easter gatherings.
Got everything I wanted from the supermarket and the crowds weren’t too crazy
Got a hair cut and it looks good

Something has to go wrong now...

I don't have to go to work tomorrow!!!!  Or the day after, or the day after, or the day after, or even the day AFTER (because I took an extra day)...

I am off to spend time with my daughter.

The only child of mine that gave me so much grief as a teenager until 25.

She is 29 now, I still worry about her, but her dad and I have visited her  (or she comes home for milestone celebrations) every year.

This year it is just me and her. I am going to enjoy it.

I'm snuggled in bed listening to the rain. The big boys are having a movie night, DP is out fishing (I hope he is coming home now it's stormy..)

Today is the start of DH's holidays. He's off until the 29th, which I'm really looking forward to.

Just cracked a small red tulip Easter egg over a bowl of blue ribbon vanilla ice cream. It was top notch.

We just had a great day at a funpark.  DH came (usually it’s ne with the kids), It Was quiet, no lines but perfect weather - hot enough for the waterslides but not so hot your feet were burning.

DS finally came down some slides with me too.

I went to ALDI for bread and milk tonight and got the last loaf. They still had the special buy containers I wanted from last week and I got some extra Easter goodies, including the last chocolate Kombi van. I also found $5 on the floor and the 2 cashiers I spoke to about it said I should keep it. There was no one at the carpark return and earn so I redeemed $14.90 before heading home. Our engaged couple are up and stayed for dinner (thank you ALDI for chicken pesto pasta and strawberry cheesecake), so I got to give them their bunnies. The ALDI brand chicken crimpy I got my tall boy are surprisingly nice.

I enjoyed a relaxing day. My sister had her first baby less than two weeks ago and I am meeting my new niece tomorrow. I went shopping today and had so much fun buying baby clothes. I came home and went on a beautiful walk with DH and the boys.  We enjoyed a lovely dinner. It's been so nice.
We put together all the family Easter eggs,
I've got some home made raspberry and white chocolate muffins in the oven.

My kiddos have been super affectionate lately. Love a kid comeibg up and giving a big random snuggle.

Also I’ve dropped a kg in the last week. Don’t ask me where it has gone or how because I certainly haven’t been eating any different or exercising more. I’d love for it to continue. And the other 6 I need to lose go down the same route.

All that crazy jumping on and off the scales?  Or perhaps the upside of rage at the in-laws staying - which begets the eventual conundrum - do you invite them back just for weightloss purposes?

Windex and prayers would nearly be on par with disinfectant, especially if it does turn out to be Easter egg over-indulgence...
