Yeah, I should post today. I made a new dish for dinner last night - it was okay and worth posting, I just can't be bothered writing about it. Maybe later.
Work is doing my head in. Yet another mess to clean up today. A mess created by the very same person who has created the last 3 or 4 or even 5 that I have had to clean up. It's not the end of the world but that's not the point. This one came to my attention as I was collecting the kids after work and had to be dealt with there and then. Hubby was out (and not able to be contacted) so the poor kids had to be dragged around as I made phone calls, did some begging and finally got it all sorted. We eventually got home at 6.30 with a very (un)healthy dinner from McDonalds that we ate in front of tv. Three and a half weeks till I finish; I have heaps of stuff to do before then and at the moment it can't come soon enough. Tell me again why I felt the need to work till the last minute and why I have such a ridiculous need to leave it all running perfectly?
If you hear a loud noise from up Red Dirt way it's probably just my head exploding!

That doesn´t sound like fun at all! I hope you get all done perfectly before you leave - you never know if come back sometime later to it, right?

Hi Mandij, You have the need to work to the last minute because you are reliable and committed. You feel the need to leave it all running perfectly because you are a woman! Just take it day by day and rest assured, I'll have the champagne on ice for your return!! XXX Anne

Hi Mandi (& hi Anne at #3)
Mandi you expect & achieve perfection from yourself and therefore expect perfection from others as well. Deep breath AND again. Don't forget you can always take time out for yourself (yes I know what I am saying & yes I am still learning)
We will also have champagne on ice when you return
Yeah Anne only a few more weeks till we can see Mandij.
Love Mum xx

Don't let your head explode up there Mandy... the resultant red dust cloud would have all you mob lost for days - and only delay your return back home mate lol ;-) Besides you'd just uncover more iron ore, and you and your hubby'd just have to stay longer!


I'm feeling much the same in my current situation currently - and I'm wishing an exploded head would help me. Would it be wrong to be wishing this on others do ya think mate???

Not that I do mind (He adds just a little too hastily)... ;-) Ciao!

Thanks, Iris. And yes, you're right!

I'll be waiting for that champers Anne! Thankyou.

Hi Mum. Yay, more champers!

Noooooo, Ron! (That was supposed to be very dramatic BTW) Nothing will delay our return. And as for wishing it on others? As long as they deserve it I have no problem with that :)
