You guys are really smart! The answer to yesterdays photo of the kinky sex toy (now that got your attention) is that it is a plasterboard lifter for the verandah ceilings.
It can be tilted to put the boards on without having to lift them high and ruin your back, and then apparently you wind it up and the plasterboard is held in place to be secured.
I can't wait to use it. Reeeallly.
Anyway, what an interesting couple of days.
I'm actually surprised that I managed to get a meal on the table this weekend.
After Fridays lasagne episode, I proceeded to drop a tray of oven chips on the floor on Saturday night, and on Sunday, had to drive back into town to the supermarket to buy supplies for the lasagne second attempt.
Even though I was already have way through making it.
It's 7.30pm and the kids are in bed. That's a strange statement but the way they have carried on today and treated each other I had no alternative but to put them to bed early.
They haven't stopped fighting from the moment their feet hit the floor this morning until now.
They do get along. Occasionally.
But lately they only have to breath in the same direction as one another and it's political disorder.
I think Miss T actually growled at me this morning before she even got out of bed.
How the hell did I upset her overnight??
I would love a feeling of harmony in our family. Where everyone gets along and is kind to one another.
I know that is possibly a rare thing to find.
For kids to get along perfectly all of the time. And a mother who says that they have this is either lying or kidding themselves.
Or extremely fortunate.
But I would just love my kids to love one another, to be kind to one another, to not elbow the next while walking past, to not breath in the others direction, to not call the other one a brat, to not want the toy the other one has, to keep arms and feet to themselves, to behave in Bunnings and Lincraft and to give mummy a break.
The funny thing is, when I am just about to blow my curly haired top, they amazingly start to get along. Just to annoy me further.
And the other thing is that if one was in a situation at school or at the park and needed help, the others would rally around and protect.
After all, we are family.
