My last 'like' is of particular significance today. I've just had the most stressful morning with son #2. He couldn't find his laptop anywhere. Now this is the laptop that has all his work for his final year prac subject and this is the son who's been having a rough time of it lately. He could remember using it on Friday evening at uni. He didn't use it all weekend and hadn't even unpacked his bag since then (yukky, smelly lunchbox!!) He was getting really stressed and so was I by extension. We decided that he needed to go back into uni and retrace his steps and I told him to just take it one step at a time and not to jump to the worst conclusion that it was gone forever.

So he went off to uni and I waited ... and an hour later I got the best news. Someone had found it and handed it in! Yay for honest people!!!


  1. Boy is your son lucky! How lucky that such a good person found it! Thanks for listing your ten things. Your gymnastics leotards must be awesome!

  2. Seeing how my teenager son's head is often not where it should be, it is only a matter time

  3. Whew! What a relief! I'd love to see your gymnastics leotards some some pics. And thanks for the award.

  4. IF I was you one of the items on my list would be I am glad to live in a country that doesn't have snakes!

  5. I thought you were in New Zealand. My ignorance is showing. Is Queensland part of Australia? I will go look at a map.

  6. Thank you for thinking of me. I will fill my list in the next post.
    Interesting list and we have the first 4 in common!!!

  7. I love me a big weekend breakfast. Although I cannot guarantee it is healthy!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you.
