This morning.

Burma Road is a gravel road up the side of a hill that sits between my house and work. I use to drive it all the time when my parents lived on campus. It's height is just over half a mile or 1051 feet. It's a road that I should not have taken this morning because 1. An Uncle and his friend drove off the road a few years ago, killing them both and 2. My car isn't made for uphill gravel roads. It's a steep hill. With my camera in the back seat and the morning fog moving quickly away, I headed up the hill stopping at corners to get out and take some shots. I breathed a sigh of relief when I got to the top. I put the car in park and applied the hand break. Just as I was about to step out of the car, she started to roll backwards. Lucky for me there was a short barrier rail that stopped the car from going over the side of the hill, which would have ultimately sent me on a one-way trip to Jesus. A bonus to not dying, I got some picturesque shots! Won't be driv

Pretty exhausted.

Birthday week last week was uneventful. Exhausted from work and sick from the change of seasons, I spent most of the day in bed sleeping it off. I had to get up and go to work .. both works. I tried to get my Mum to work for me claiming birthday girls shouldn’t work on their birthdays, but she declined. I’ll remember her on the first of June. Hubs and I had cake that we bought from the supermarket and she made me sing happy birthday to her. She then made a wish and blew out my birthday candle and said, “Well I hope my wish comes true. I want an iPad”. It’s void when it’s not your birthday. I didn’t see our boy till Saturday. He had a great birthday. Leaving work this morning. Fall is coming. The babies. Indy will be 1 at the end of the month. She is not quite walking, but our Stiddy boy is a professional at it, which is funny because when they were born my brother vowed Indy would walk first.

Happy Birthday

He would have been 58.

Life lately.

I thought I knew what busy was. This is not the case. I’ve been living the good life up until work took over all. I can barely find time for Hubs during the week because of work and sleep. It sucks very much that she is at the butt end of my time, but I try make up for it in the weekend. For instance, we went mug shopping on Saturday. See? Time well spent. She got a flamingo mug for her winter milos.  I officially have 3 jobs. It’s a little bit of a nightmare trying to find time for sleep. My 4th unofficial job is to babysit the boy while his mother works. Of course it’s unpaid, but I love that boy enough to do it half asleep. Daycare is an expensive thing 5-days a week. He maxes out at 2-days a week.  Tuesday’s and Fridays are my days of reprieve. This is when Hubs doesn’t have afternoon activities to attend. All would be well if my main job was 9-5. Alas, it’s 12-8am.  Not complaining at all. I actually like the job.  I usually hate school holidays .. but I a
