Your brother in law calls at 7am to tell your husband that blood elves are now to become paladins and that's like THE biggest news ever.

It's 5 past 9am. Elana is lying on her tummy watching Bambaloo (have I mentioned I hate bambaloo?) having been awake since 4 freaking AM.

Yes apparently she woke up very upset but I only woke up when I rolled over and there she was sitting between me and Nick - at 4am. She lay/sat/stood between us until 20 past 5am when Nick turned the tv on to see the time and she and Nick got at at 6am. I managed to doze until 7am when I had to get up to give her weetbix and iron nick's clothes -- it was th...

I'm 22 today. This means my blog is like 13months old.

Nick & Elana woke me up late (7am instead of 6:45am) and they gave me presents, Nick made me croissants and coffee - it was lovely.

I got Friends Season 1 and 2 on DVD, the dvd of Princess Bride which means I have it on all media (VCD, VHS and DVD) HOOORAY!!!!!!!!! I got a book that looks really interesting it's about this Indian who wins who wants to be a millionaire but gets thrown in jail because they think he muct have cheated - I'...

I think I should start a column called "todays Random objects Elana plays with" about all the things that aren't toys that keep Elana amused for hours.

A few minutes ago I commenced the "tidyup" before Nick gets home. This involves me picking up all the "toys" out of the hallway so Daddy doesn't trip on anything.
Most of the time it's just picking up the magnetic letters and putting them back on the fridge and picking up some blocks that had been strewn back in the box but today as I looke...

Elana can match. As I've said in many previous blogs and comments Elana has a thing for the W's (not the awesome Christian band, but the letter magnets on our fridge) We gave her a second packet of letters for Christmas and so she has 2 of every letter. (except I took the letters that spelt her name E-L-A-N-A and put them on the fridge just above the point where she can reach) But now as well as the 2 W's (which are both blue) she has now started carrying around other letters both Q's which ar...

After what seems like weeks of blockage and nothing to write about - Not even blogs about Elana - I seem to be on a role this morning and I can't seem to be able to stop saying every thought that comes into my head.

And I still haven't written about my bad day. Or my irrational fears or the Chinese food I ate last night

So bare with me as I continue to spill what seems to be verbal diarrhoea of my thoughts - My brain is spilling out but it's not articluating correctly the way I think it ...

Thanks Brad and other admins who put the watch list feature on - All my articles are on watch list - which is how I know that I'm being spammed.

I check my email notice that one of my old articles has been commented on and immediately I suspect spamming. And I'm right so I go straight to the article in question delete said spam and go about my day.

Thanks Stardock!

After an EXTREMELY unmotivated bored out of my brain completely unproductive day, I'm dressed, the washing up is done and Elana's bottles are made.

And it only took 8hours

Normally I get up at 6:45am make Elana's cereal and Nick's sandwiches, put the kettle on for Elana's bottle and switch the coffee machine on.
Then Nick goes to work at 8am and I wash the dishes from the night befores dinner and breakast, wash out and sterilise Elana's bottles, put her down for a sleep go put some clothe...

It's kinda silly and I'm not crying anymore but I was about 2hours ago

I had a pretty good day today - My parents came over and we took Elana to the park and then we had fish & chips for lunch afterwards.
Got home and Nick got home a bit later and about 5ish Andy called to ask if I wanted to go to the hospital to see Jess - which of course I did. But 20seconds after I got off the phone I remembered I had a blocked nose -- I have that winter nose - actually its a winter and a summer nose - yo...

It was roughly this time 15 weeks ago (april 22) that I wrote my first blog - it seems like much longer and then again not that long ago.

107 articles
496 replies
6 pages (I remember being excited when it was just 2) Link
numerous irrelevant comments on other peoples articles (I wonder if anyone has those numbers - I wonder who has the most comments in total ever)

Since this is my 108th blog and 108 holds no significant importance to anything I'm just going to write about well nothing. ...

My MSN looks funny right now -- this probably shouldnt be in any category but the ramblings of a silly girl category BUT

the people online on my msn list are
a bunch of irrelevant people - (including roc - I rock at fixing stuff which I totally misread when he first signed in)
In00briated -- which is Mugz - I just mentioned that because if he read this and thought he was irrevelant he might get cut - but the people are irrelevant because they have nothing to do with Matchbox 20
Nick
Rob...

I have Matchbox 20 in my head - It just popped in - I was thinking about the first line I was going to type - what to say when suddenly "It's sitting by the overcoat, The second shelf, the note she wrote That I can't bring myself to throw away "

I don't have a clue why that line popped in my head and I don't know my my mind skipped the rest of the verse and went on to "And I'm soTerrified of no one else but meI'm here all the time I won't go away "

Reach down your hand in your pocket

I'd like to write a really profound thought provoking blog someday.

But I doubt that day will come soon - but I still want to blog about something so in celebration of my own insane randomness I'm just going to keep talking about whatever pops into my head and post it.

About 3 minutes ago I walked out into the lounge to turn the kettle on and the radio was on - it was All Star United - I love all star united but I'm not a fan of the particular song that was being played by the radio dj man...

It is my fondest wish that the following will leave your mouth watering and drooling with jealousy. And the Australians will rush to Brisbane and book a table for the winter menu.

Saturday night Nick's dad came over to be in the house while Elana slept - so we could go out for dinner for our Wedding Anniversary. (Which is today - Monday 19th)
We had an 8'o'clock reservation at Venice a bar/cafe` on the river in Brisbane. It was our fourth visit to this restuarant & once again we weren't disa...

Today I put Elana in the bath with her track suit pants and knickers around her ankles.

Elana was driving me crazy today she was just very very grizzly she really wanted Nick to be home from work and wasn't very easy to console.
By the time bath time came around I was so over it she got Kraft Mac & Cheese for dinner.
So I ran the bath while she was sitting in Nick's chair listening to her playlist on Nick's comp (Wish You Well - Bernard Fanning, Don't You Think It's Time - Bob Evans, Fix Yo...
