The fox is a hyena, the hoarse is a zebra, the frog is a frog but apparently there is a crocodile as well…behind the frog. The cow is a buffalo and the cat is a leopard. And when I asked V who Tommy and Annica were, he said – Tommy and Africa. Well that explains a lot!
…I would do that too. The reason why my post are non existing at the moment, I have nothing fun to write about. First I got sick, then Fabio, then Vittorio and now the little champ is having trouble breathing. The posts would be (shorter version) – cough, fever, vomit, nebuliser, no sleep, yellow snot, panado, blurred vision, no light in the tunnel.
I know that this is the life of a parent (toddler and baby) but it sucks. Really sucks!
And on top of this, well who gets all my frustration…Max and Svea. So I would also hide behind a pole if I where them.
Growing up loving barbie, I am convinced. If Barbie would be alive and kicking Her name would be Sofie Fahrman…
She likes to go horse back riding…
Is what I have been doing these last two days. Started on Wednesday morning. Ache! Everything hurt, every muscle, every bone, every joint – everything! No fever but no appetite. The only thing I can do is to lie down and even that hurts. Went to bed at 7pm yday convinced that I would feel like star in the morning….noop. So I gave up and went to the doctor…
Too many days and no bloggning. I have so much I want to write about and so little time.
On Saturday we went for a wine tasting. So nice – and made me want to take a wine course. I must say I am pretty bad. I couldn’t tell the difference between a Merlot and a Shiraz or was it a Bordeaux. But I can tell the difference between a good and a bad wine…I think.
Sunday morning, F played golf and I took the dogs + kids + bike to emmerentia. TG Cat and Ant helped out. We had a very nice walk and max didn’t even run away. Maybe because I didn’t care, somehow I think he knew – she is not keeping track on me so I have to tag her.
Now – time for tennis
Last year was websites. I loved it – create and instantly see the result. Trial and error. Find a good solution. Think it through before you start, just like an excel model. It’s like a puzzle. How do I get the text to look like this, the picture should not be in the right corner but the left. Self taught and definitely not the easy way. One of websites I did was www.ikageng.org.za.
This year it jewellery (or bracelets). At least during Andrea’s baby phase. I need to work with my hands, create something I can touch and feel. When I think I have done my last bracelet – I get a new idea. 95% just before bedtime and 5% in the shower.
Now I’m combining web design
and jewellery design …my next project. I’ll let you know when it is ready.
The butterflies in my stomach wouldn’t settle – tomorrow first day of school. That tingling tense feeling of nervousness and anticipation. What should I wear, what should I pack? Is everything in order? Some familiar faces but most of them are new.
These were my thought on Sunday evening. Except It wasn’t me going to a new school, it was my son. Still I was quite happy that I got to experience that special feeling again – new school, new books, new friends. Made me realise that I must have liked school a lot.
Today I felt the butterflies again. I had prepared everything. Shorts, sports bra, t-shirt, socks, racket…and the most important my shoes. When I dusted them of and put them on, I felt that tingling feeling, anticipation, longing and nerves all in one. I was going back onto the court after 9 months. Slow and awkward…but loving it.
Well it take a guess, Andrea or Vittorio?
Well as it is TBT …it’s Vittorio, but scary how similar they look. What has happened lately?..not much. V is starting montessori on monday..yeay! We will miss his old play school but I think it is good for him to change…and it is only a block away from us.
A still doesn’t take the bottle….after two weeks of practising. I’m thinking of just starting him on solids…he is big enough. I was at the doctor yesterday and he is now 7,87 kg and 70cm. Still following the 97 curve. Big boy =) If you wonder, I’m back at my normal weight and struggling to keep it. I’m eating everything I can get my hands on. Lucky me – I know…but it is not that fun when you feel dizzy and weak most of the time. And eating healthy – lets just say I am so tired of nuts, dried mango, apple, bananas, I want to puke.
Max and Svea – well they keep killing rats and bring them to my feet. Well Max does, Svea eats them.
Oh, I forgot. I had to service my car and suddenly I have no car until monday. Nothing bad that doesn’t bring some good – a dear friend lent me his fiat 500. I am not sad! Its got a sun roof and everything. When I backed out of the garage Vittorio clapped his hands and said “Well done mom” (never done that before) and just as I drove away my favourite song played on the radio. Good start of the day!
Hope you are having a great thursday as well!
