Still here!!!!

Well I am still here but the last week has gone in a blur. I have only worked my scheduled days this week and I am pleased I put in the effort to spend the extra time last week at work becasue now I have things mostly tidied and can just walk in and start work without all the mess around me - SIMPLIFYING - DECLUTTERING - only this time at work.

Home ? well that quote that I am fond of giving to others about being a great mother, a fantastic wife and a wonderful business woman - just not all on the same day....has really come back to bite me in the behind. Boy it is SO TRUE - I think girl children should have it tattooed on their forearm at birth!!!!!!

Neverhteless as I read this I realise I still have my sense of humour something that was sorely lacking in the fog that was last week.

So today daisyson17 is 18 - henceforth he shall be referred to as daisyson18. Below is a photo of his birthday cake...complete with HSV commodore to adorn the top - we found it at Kmart for about $3 the other day heaven only knows how old it is and how long it has been there but chocolate is chocolate and holdens are holdens and $3 is small price to pay for my car mad son to have it on his cake.
I have a few more posts in the wings I decided the only way I am going to keep up is to write some ahead of time then include all the daily ramnblings when I pull it up to post....this may sound like cheating but I call it organisation from now on I need even more of that than before.
People are still bringing me their alterations and honestly I think I am going to have to can that part of my life except in a few rare circumstances I just don't seem to have time to get everything done with working. I have another load of pre fold nappies to make and a skirt to take up and another little repair job. I guess I will just have to get used to the idea that I won't be able to turn things around in a few days and people seem happy to wait so maybe I will see how it goes for a while.
Okay off to have a swim in the dam it is over 30 here already this morning - then we have a relaxing day of friends coming over (one of my quilting buddies and her kids), a bbq lunch and just kicking back and relaxing. Tomorrow well that is whole other story...............

Love that cake, it looks so delicious.

I hope your son had a fantastic birthday. He is officially an adult now so look out!

I think that working mums are a special breed as I don't know how they handle two jobs, family and work. It can be a stressful time.

You're doing a great job DaisyMum. It sounds as if you're getting into your rhythm and once that is done (thanks to all your hard work, i.e., organizing and simplifying) things won't seem so overwhelming. I am quite impressed. Also, love your idea of pre writing posts (that is NOT cheating...I plan to do it too...some day, when I become more organized :).
God Bless. You and your family are in my prayers and best thoughts.
P. S. The cake is very clever...and I agree...chocolate is chocolate !! Also got a kick that henceforth he will be Daisyson 18 ;) LOL. xo

Hello DM
Love the motor on the cake - were there any fights over who got which part? I want the bonnet - I want the boot -??
Great to hear things have calmed down at work now, having the organising skills is a big advantage in getting to grip with all the demands of blending home and work.
Sounds like you are doing well in that department
Take care
