Oh, so hai. I feel like I have been completely MIA and out of touch. Everything is really good though, I am still super busy, but I have been spending a LOT of time filling in that busy-ness with things I (and my family) love doing - I have been at the gym loads, watching movies (currently visiting season 1 of The L Word), baking cakes, taking Rubes swimming, hanging out. You know, LEISURE TIME THINGS.
Things I never used to do much of. Oh, I would do things to entertain Rubes, we are always doing fun things... but things for just me? Not so much.
See, right now... it's 4:30 on a Friday afternoon and I am under the covers in bed drinking tea. Unheard of. Admittedly I have vacuumed the house, picked up some printing for a conference DrMr has to go to this weekend, baked some vegan peanut butter cookies for his work place (seriously delish), tidied, shopped, bought Rubes a book about sharks, ate lunch in a Japanese restaurant with Rubes and DrMr, drove all around a bit, swore in traffic and otherwise kept a toddler entertained and happy. So it's not like I spent all DAY in bed. Just the last little bit.
I think it's good, but I you know, I need to make more of an effort not to be so out of touch.
SUPER IMPORTANT THINGS.
1. I need a haircut, I can not grow my hair. I am in foofy hair helmet land.
2. Georgie Love is going to officially be represented at the Finders Keepers markets in October. It's our first ever market, which is a Big Deal. Bec and I are working overtime to make sure it's super ace. So if you are about, make sure you mark the 9 & 10 of Oct in your DIARIES now, so you can come and say HI.
3. My toddler is OBSESSED with fish, water and all water-related creatures. It's been the same since pretty much birth, she is a little water baby. I don't think she is going to be a real girly princess sparkles kind of girl (despite a current preference for a pink dummy) - she LOVES all the scary creatures, sharks, things with teeth. We have this documentary we have seen too many times to mention and her absolute favourite bit is where a polar bear jumps into the sea to try and (unsuccessfully) catch and eat beluga whales for lunch. The bear jumps in and she screams "UH OH!" in delight. I guess we have the theme figured for her second birthday...
