Day one of this blog......

Why am I doing this?????Well I'm finding that I'm fairly lonely, occassionally bored and very over facebook so here we go. What will I blog about, who knows probably random stuff. You will have to excuse my poor blogging skills, hopefully this will improve.

In theory....

In theory public transport is great and has multiple benefits- less carbon emissions, decreases road conjestion is a community benefit and you get to meet other people. Well today I reminded myself that in theory public transport is great but in practise its utterly crap and I want my car back.
Needing to get a few things I decided to catch the bus to Charlestown after Dios had his second sleep, so off we went to catch the bbus at 11:20am. I met a lovely older man at the bus stop so that did at least confirm that you can meet some nice people. Getting on the bus was a tad difficult with the pram but I managed to sit in the pram designated seats and strap the pram in. IT TOOK AN HOUR TO DRIVE TO CHARLESTOWN (normally I think 15 mins max). Fortunately Dios was a trooper and thought it was great that he could small at all the older people on the bus.
I went and did my shopping, Dios had a sleep in his pram and then back on the bus. Unfortunately the trip home was also at the time when school finished so I got onto a very full bus with the pram space already taken. I had to leave my beast of a pram in the centre isle and the bus driver refused to leave the bus stop till someone gave me there seat. Once again it took an hour and once again Dios was a trooper. There were some jems of people on this trip, from the smell and sound of things there were four intoxicated people combined with the classy people that live in my area.
Needless to say if I attempt this again it will only be for a very good reason, secondly planners from the past were insane when they thought  unconnected suburbs would be a great place to live.

In honour of Spring

In honour of Spring I thought I would deface some flowers (or the boredom is finally getting to me). Here are a few samples of my work:

These flowers , Cala Lillies I think, are the only landscaping that exists at our house so I thought it only fitting to give them some colour. I'm now wondering if there are many jobs for flower graffiti artists as I'm definitely gifted.

I found the murial below when I was walking in Newcastle the other day, I think it was on Beaumont St in Hamilton. Very cool.

Em I'm very jealous about your trip to fashion week, I agree it would have been great people watching.

Clothing disfunction

I am having a massive case of having a wardrobe of clothing but nothing to wear. Everything I own is either a) too big b) summer weight c) looks like it was stolen from some hippies or is d) not fit to leave the house in. I'm suffering a major case of also having lost the ability to find clothing that looks any good, I have been to multiple shops and have been unable to find the simplest items e.g tops, even though I had a little bit of cash from Beau's pokie windfall. I know this is extremely trivial to say the least but I am spending at least half an hour a day deciding what to wear and then still looking like I slept in my clothing and also changing 3 or 4 times as nothing looks right.

Dios started swimming lessons on Friday which he loved and was fun to attend. We didn't do any submertion but Dios had the kicking part under way.

The poor little bub had a cold so I'm thinking tonight might not be fun. Over and out.

Sleep is wonderful

Last night Dios slept from 6pm to 2.30am with a feed and change then back to sleep till 6.30am so today I don't feel like such a zombie and the world actually feels like a positive place.Due to sleep deprivation not alot has been happening lately. I have purchased bumpers as recommended by you guys and Dios has managed to get about 75% day sleeps in his cot.
Yesterday I purchased a highchair for Dios which apart from being great for eating is also wonderful to wack and great for games of hide and seek.

The world is making me sad

Today I saw Bangalow on morning tv and that made me miss the far north coast way to much. After that it was the baby whale that got beached at the Gold Coast that died and today has sucked hardcore.
Today has just made me extremely sad, also the lack of sleep and massive exhaustion I'm feeling is adding to this sadness. Feeling like such a fish out of water and hoping we will get out of this ghetto soon. Definite lesson in appreciating what you have.
I'm hoping for a night of some sleep so that I at least feel human tomorrow. I'm missing sleep and the ability to give a shit about what I'm feeding myself.
Unfortunately we have a 'maintenance inspection' tomorrow. I hate renting it sux balls big time.
I have brought some cot bumpers so will see how they go. I hope they are the key as Dios is yet to sleep properly in his cot during the day.
