Cant talk now. for some reason this is in bold, sorry. we all have colds here except lovergirl. everytime i pick up a baby i get snail trails of baby snot all over my clothes. poor buggers cant sleep, they keep waking themselves up. only way to get some peace is sit holding them. my only baby free time is 7-10pm so I'm not so thrilled with current state of affairs. although i know my only concern should be for their comfort i must confess to a smidgen of impatience. I'VE got a snotty nose too, you know.
thought i'd do this meme from thirdcat
What was I doing 10 years ago?
30th birthday - group holiday at daylesford with about ten friends. I made everyone a poster telling them what i liked about them, with crayon illustrations and sparkles. Years later I would still see them stuck up on people's toilet walls.
Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect, non weight-gaining world:
potato chips - plain; flavours are an aberration.
chocolate, also plain & dark. White chocolate is waste of good chocolate space.
In a perfect world, that'd be about it.
Five snacks I enjoy in the real world :
last night's leftovers
plain potato chips
cheese on toastand chocolate
(I'm allowed more than five as I'm breastfeeding)
Five things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Hire a nanny who would do all the crap work while LG & I played with the kids. Also one could hold one baby while I held the other, if both were crying at the same time. I hate not being able to comfort both at once.
Hire two nannies to hold the babies when they are sick and can't sleep
Live in Italy for a year
Buy a comfy house with a council-approved toilet on a big property near a beautiful lake; fly my family up to visit me regularly (I'd say build them a little place of their own on the property but I think Lovergirl might have something to say about that)
Five jobs that I have had:
petrol pump attendant
paper delivery girl
the person who assesses whether you are mad and need to go to the psych hospital
kids' improvisational drama teacher
freelance writer (i like saying that)
Three of my habits:
cooking gorgeous food
leaving kitchen in a mess after cooking gorgeous food
Five places I have lived:Altona (Melbourne) - childhood home
Preston/Thornbury (Melbourne) - typical lesbian, lived with every girlfriend after 2 dates
Five people I want to get to know better
Well, that's another thing about me - I hate passing these things on. Because, you know, I'll suggest five people, and they won't do it, and that'll be a kind of rejection, won't it?
