day 11 - funny that!
Sunday, May 12, 2013
That's what I thought this morning when I stood in the kitchen preparing breakfast for my family.
I mean, it's mother's day, wasn't that supposed to be the job my boys were supposed to do?? You know, make brekkie and serve it to me in bed??? Ou well, to be honest, I did forget it was mother's day and only remembered when I stood there and chopped apples.
I got myself a nicer mother's day present later anyways: A bucket of paint!!! It has been too long. All the rooms in our house have stayed the same colour for TOO long!!! Now, we can't allow that, can we??? So tomorrow I will attack a wall in our bedroom and change it from chocolate brown to a light grey blue... nothing wrong with chocolate brown, except that I wanna lick it every time JABBA comes for a visit.
So I didn't get brekkie in bed, but we went out for dinner with my in-laws... it seems to be a family tradition by now that we go out for fish and chips together. Not the healthiest of options I know, yet I didn't have to stand in the kitchen and cook dinner as well. I was rather proud of myself. Okay, greasy chips aren't good for you, yet, I did not succumb to the temptation to drink a soda nor did I join in while the others had an ice cream for dessert. Today I had my sweets for afternoon tea: leftover black forest cake and a choc chip cookie which my son made in school... can't say no to that now, can I??
I think we entered the time of th year when I feel constantly cold. it's just weird... I mean, I'm from Germany. I should be used to cold weather yet I feel like I have never been as cold as here in Australia... or at least not as constantly cold. I reckon German houses are just better build for cold weather and much warmer inside... ou and, central heating is absolutely normal... and double glazing. Sigh... and winter hasn't even really started.
