Happy 6th Birthday, Mia Jill!

Oh my sweet face, you're 6 years old today!
You're such a special soul, you make me so happy with all your love, hugs, kisses, love letters and jokes.  I'm super proud of you, and I love you to the moon and back!

Superhero party planning

Mia's birthday party is this Saturday, and her birthday next Wednesday!

Oh, to be this excited about birthdays... I just love her excitement and anticipation.

We made a quick and easy birthday countdown calendar - this literally took less than 5 minutes to make, but oh man, is she super chuffed with it.

The superhero theme idea originally came from the superhero Barbie movie, but seeing as she did a Barbie theme last year, she said general superhero theme is fine.  Really like the colour scheme of yellow, blue and red, just screams "party!"

I've pinned a couple of ideas on my Pinterest Superhero Party Board, and feel quite in control of all the planning so far.  Jumping castle booked, tables and chairs booked, inlaws arriving on Friday, I'll do the cake on Thursday night and finish it on Friday.

Cutting out zig-zags of exclamations of Boom! Pow! and Bam! until it comes out of my ears, but hey, all in the name of superhero party fun. ;-)

Random thoughts...

This "new blog post" window has been open for a couple of days.  Sooooo many things I want to share here.  More detailed info about Mia's speech therapy and occupational therapy and all my thoughts on it.  Ella's bad sleeping habits.  All about settling into our new home, our home-improvement diy things we're doing and want to do. My beauty salon business. My never-ending see-saw of a weightloss mission.

But, right now, I really just feel like spitting out a couple of arb, random thoughts!  So here goes...

Tomorrow I'm going to the hairdresser.  It's September.  Time for blonde hair again!

I escaped to the salon this afternoon, telling the nanny and my kids that I have a client.  I didn't have a client.  I did some admin work and I painted my nails purple.

I really like my purple nails.

The Weimeraner puppy drives me insane, more often than not.

I really dislike cooking supper.

But tonight's pasta, bacon and mushroom sauce was pretty yum.

Stop coughing Ella.

It's 21:01, I told my hubby I'll come to bed at nine...

Should I pour another few sips of wine?

What can I add to my business to make more profit...

Oh shit, Mia's party is in two weeks time, I need to get to china mall, craft shop and party shop.

Sure could do with more hours in a day

I'm tired and want to go to bed

I need to find pics to show the hairdresser tomorrow, wonder if I should cut a fringe?

I really want to start running.

Really want to generally start looking after myself a bit better.

Procrastinate less.

Does this count as procrastinating?  No. My blog is important.

This newspaper strewn all over the table irritates the shit out of me.  I'm gonna chuck it in the recycling bin.

I'm really chuffed about the recycling service I found in our area.  Paper, plastic and glass, rinsed, and can be mixed together, the collectors do the sorting themselves.

I wonder how my sister's sore eye is feeling.

Stop coughing Ella...

We planted some seedlings today, hope they survive.

Okay it's 21:07, I gotta go.
