bits and pieces

The week has gotten away from me.  I meant to write more.  Where did the time go?


Callum is finally better.  It took 4 days for his temperature to stop creeping up to fever level.  I really didn’t enjoy that very much.


Mark’s dad arrived from England yesterday to stay for a week.  Oliver is super excited and decided to wake up at 5:30 this morning to hang out with him.  Better not pull that one again tomorrow, kid.


Tomorrow is Callum’s first birthday party and naming day.  I’ve got an unknown quantity in the minister dude who won’t communicate in advance of the ceremony, so I have no idea what to expect.  I am expecting around 20 – 25 people (including grandparents and great-grandparents and loads of my friends but not many kids), and I need to make a hell of a lot of food tomorrow morning.  For Oliver’s first birthday, I made everything from scratch.  Callum, the fact that you are going to have a store-bought birthday cake does not mean I love you any less (shhhhh, don’t tell anyone, I like you better really) – it’s merely an indication that mummy’s head feels like it’s about to explode.


Dare I take my children to the local Santa Claus parade on Sunday?  Dare I introduce speaking of Santa and Christmas already? I am worried Oliver’s just not going to shut up about it for the next 2 months.


Have a good weekend.  I think mine might be filled with Tylenol.  And wine.  We bought lots of wine.
