My Mum is the eldest of 10 siblings.
I have 26 cousins on my mother's side... and I could probably walk past 20 of them on the street and not recognise them.
That's pretty sad. But, as we were the first grandkids and most of our cousins are quite a few years younger, we didn't really have much to do with them as we grew up. Only saw them at BIG family gatherings.
So.... I've got about 6 cousins here in Auckland. And I don't have anything to do with them. I've probably not made enough of an effort to get in touch. But that's because I just don't know them.
Anyway.... I'm leading up to why I'm talking about this. One of the cousins who lives here got in touch, and is coming to visit today.
I'm sure it will be a lovely visit... she's got a dog similar to mine. *smiles*
I bet she's going to love our puppies!
Griffin's friend JJ is coming for the day, so that's Griffin entertained for the day. Mostly they play Play Station in the bedroom and I hardly see them!
Also today, I think Steve, Bex and the little boys are coming over? Steve said for a spa, but maybe the weather will ruin those plans.
Keera's off to Daycare... this is her last week. After this week I'm hoping to get her into Kindergarten. I must ring up and find out if they are open yet.
The only other thing on me agenda is to bath Tallulah. She is as smelly as the puppies were yesterday, but I didn't get the time to wash her after their baths. So today sometime... I will bath her too.
DAMN! Some bastard has stolen one of my potted palms from the front of my house! I'm really upset, it was looking so good and had just had a growth spurt. Now I'm left wondering if I should have anything out the front that is nice and pinch-able!
Grrrrrr... never thought that would happen around here.
I visited the local Kindergarten this morning and they are working on getting Keera in soon. I should hear back from them some time today if they have a space for her. Fingers crossed.
- my cousin was just LOVELY. We talked non stop for 3 hours... we have SO MUCH in common when it comes to kids and family issues!!!
We must get together again soon. I really loved talking with her.
- Got a phone call from Daycare. Keera has a low temperature and a snotty nose, so I had to go and get her. She has a cold FFS. So, I doubt she will be going back there as her cold will probably last till next week, and this is her last week there anyway. So, I will be paying for three days childcare ($145) this week for NOTHING. That does wonders for my mood.
Lesson learnt. Try not to have easily stolen potted plants out the front!
Now... I'm going to bath Tallulah and get her smelling pretty again.
End of Day: OMG another stinking hot, humid day! You literally cannot move without breaking out in a sweat. Thank goodness for fans!
