Busy, Busy, Busy!

My brain is on the fritz. This is not uncommon, in fact I find the whole debacle of bringing up children enough to send me quite batty. Lately, it's been worse than normal though. It feels like I have a whole host of dilemmas to deal with and not enough hours in the day to deal with them all.

Over the next two months life is crazier than crazy for this household.

Next week, two of my favourite people in the whole world are getting married. Eeeek! So excited! But with the wedding comes a fair amount of organising to do. I have to pack for us all to go away (the wedding is at Lennox Head -Northern NSW)  we will be staying there for three days. I have to try and cut down on my 6 minute wedding speech (I do tend to ramble - in case you hadn't noticed) I'm handwriting all the place cards and I have to - at some point- beautify myself. Seeing that I am a bridesmaid I do have to make some effort. I don't think walking down the aisle with three months regrowth and the hairiest armpits in the universe will you? Now I am not complaining, the poor bride has way more on her plate than me (duh!) I'm just slightly freaking out.

My Daddy is in hospital. He is OK. Hopefully he will be out soon. But I kind of feel like I should be camped out in front of the place until he gets the all know what I mean?

We have to find a house to move into...preferably one that is not mouse-infested like this one. Now, we have been very lucky in that for the past few months we have lived in my MIL's house rent free while she has been away. But she will be back within the next  month so we need to find a house to rent pronto. Trouble is I'm a bit fussy. I've already looked at quite a few properties and not one had lived up to my expectations. I have three to look at before this week is out and I'm really hoping that one of them is acceptable. Even if it is OK it is quite likely that the owner will look at our application, see that it says 'Four kids and a dog' and shudder with horror...I know I would.

I also have a weekend away in Noosa to plan and get organised for (oh, poor me, such a hard life!) My daughter's 9th birthday to fit in (Can't believe she's nearly 9! Where did that time go?) and our yearly camping holiday to prepare for......Yaaaaaay!

Oh, and I almost forgot, I guess I should at some stage I should start to get ready for Christmas.....Oops! And Hubby's birthday (Christmas Eve)

So, please excuse me if I'm missing from the blogging world for any length of time. If I'm not around much be assured I'm either busy, exhausted or my brain has exploded!


  1. I hope you find a house to live soon. Looking must be so stressful. Enjoy the wedding and your holiday. I hope your dad recovers quickly.

  2. and once again the mad season descends upon us!... if its any consolation i'll be right there beside you in the madness - different madness to yours, but mad none-the-less....

    Noosa - just up the road from me. And where I went for dinner tonight, and saw the most amazing sunset...

    just remember to keep breathing in and out ok? x

  3. Remember to breath, you will no good otherwise. Lists, and more lists!

  4. Thought you must've been busy Lene. Good luck on the house hunting front. When are you in Noosa? We'll be there for the weekend of 10 and 11 December.

    Anne xx

  5. Good luck in the house-hunt Lene, and enjoy the wedding.
    Busy = lots of blogging material! Hope you manage to get some time to use it. :-)

  6. Sounds like you have your hands full!! Remember to squeeze a glass of wine in here and there - the other things seem less frantic with a glass of red in your hand x

  7. Thanks so much everyone. Tomorrow I'm attempting to have a slow, quiet day before the mayhem really sets in! Hopefully I'll get to do some blogging, visiting and commenting before next week kicks in!

  8. Good grief woman, that's a whole lot of busy! I hope your Dad gets the all-clear real soon. Try to just work your way through it little by little. That might sound impossible at this stage, but you'll get there!
