The love supreme

9.6.07

Ahhhh...that feels better....

...Ive had another fiddle with my blog banner.... and I feel much happier.. its more me.... its not as frilly...not as vintage coloured..... and although I liked the other one....it just wasnt me!

Brent and Alex have gone away for the long weekend...they are over at Ardrossan visiting Grandma and Grandpa.... probably using all their hot water...and giving us a chance to have a hot shower for a change....
..... they have left some tell tale signs that they are away...like....

Its 11am and there is still milk in the fridge....
Ians shaver and shaving cream have vanished.... and
the batteries are missing from the remote control in the lounge.... (Im guessing you need a mp3 player when you are fishing...) ... hope you have a good time guys..... and watch out for Dad when you get home...he's on the war path....lol

Mmm... what other news.... not much really.... I have decided that maybe I will enter the Masters again this year..... I have ummed and ahhed....and was completley off the idea.... and now Im thinking maybe I will again..... I mean Im just one humungous sucker for rejection....and I know Ive had some unbeleivable opputunities lately...which Im stoked about.... but there is nothing like a challenge.... and Im tougher now...and Im rambling I know..... and dont be surprised if I completley change my mind again.... not that it matters...

...anyway.... I got thinking yesterday (huge thanks to my dear friend...who gave me a little strength when I needed it) ... and if Im going to get an entry in on time...I need some photos.....

I said to Mitchell and Briony over breakie this morning......

Me... "can you guys get dressed properly after breakie and Ill take you out for some photos"
Them... ( looks of total disgust....without so much as a word uttered...just the raising of eyebrows above their cereal bowls)
Me... "please guys....I want some nice photos in case I enter the Masters competition"
Briony.... in the most irritable voice possible " I dont care about the damn Masters..."
Mitch..."I care about the Masters ... but I still dont want my bl##dy photo taken"

Far out..... it annoys me so much...why cant they cooperate when I want them too...lol..... so I nagged them into getting dressed...I nagged them into the car..... using bribery mostly.... and I even got them to photo location #1 ... but they wouldnt get out of the car.... point blank refused..... there was apparently someone in a 500 metre radius...that may have possibly seen them (would have needed binoculars...but nevertheless)...Grrr... so on to photo location #2 ... and a win for me....not a person in sight... but do you think they would now cooperate?? .......No!!
So...this is a sample of the mornings effort.....totally pathetic hey?

...and the only smiles I got...were walking back to the car when we were leaving..... little poopaloops!!


..Well...Ianies off hitting the little white ball around...so Im free to have me time....

Happy weekend..

    Too funny - I feel for you though! Love your banner, liked the other one too. You need to teach me how to get your own banner up - I have no clue what so ever and would love to put one up. Have fun.

  5. hee hee...looks like all kids are alike when it comes to being unco-operative for their mothers with a camera in hand Mardi, regardless of age! It's so obvious you've got a wonderful relationship with your kids...they are full of personality!!

    The new banner rocks...very YOU!

  8. LOL!!! Mardi that's too funny.....I'm not sure I'm looking forward to all that myself!! Love the new banner (loved the old one too)! I haven't even attempted a banner for myself yet - just don't have enough hours in the day!! GO FOR IT with the Masters too - you had some success last year so maybe this year you'll win it!!
