4pm

The nice flip-side of my darling boy growing up and starting school dawned on me today.  I mean, I realise that there are many flip-sides such as the confirmation that Dave and I have seemingly done a great job these past five years and have raised a pretty well adjusted little kid who after being at school for five minutes on his first day looked at me and told me ::very s l o w l y in case I might have trouble understanding:: that it was time for me to go now, he had school to do.

But today….Oh my goodness.  I haven’t had a hair cut in approx 6 months.  I have had my colour done but not a cut, so basically it looked like the remnants of a hay bale stuffed into a hair tie.  I was that girl who entered the salon wearing a hat.  But I left with the best haircut I have ever had.

I figured that it was my duty to go clothes shopping, you know, doing it for all the recently-separated-from their-kids-by-school mothers out there.  So I took one for the team and picked out a new outfit for the Pearl Jam concert tomorrow.  Let me tell you, if you are not a fan of your mid-section or if you straight up hate it like I do, GO AND TRY ON A MAXI-DRESS.  I did, I bought one and I am going to rock it tomorrow.  They are so slimming, the long full skirt just draws the eye down and of course there are no muffin-top-nasties anyway because you’re not being cut in half by your waistband!

After that I met Dave for lunch and we sat poolside at The Backyard and soaked up the sun.  Yes it was sunny.  I promise.  We enjoyed prawn and sundried tomato fritters and split a Backyard Burger.  So good!

Best day I have had in a long time.  And all because I can work three days and make the same hours I was previously doing over 5 days.  Bless you school, I am definitely Thankful for you!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  Here are some shots from Halloween / Thanksgiving 05

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
