Too Early

Not too early to be starting the day but probably a bit too early to be online. Is only ten past six and have already had a near drowning and medium sized spider experience.

Marina grizzled at half five so I too her some water. Ten seconds later and she starts screaming - the kind of screaming when something is very wrong. I run into her room and she is spluttering and coughing. Poor wee thing. She quite often pushes the teat of the bottle in with her fingers. It usually doesn't come off but no doubt I hadn't stuck it in quite hard enough. She got flood of water (about 40 ml)on her face. Happy as Larry now though, and thank God wasn't milk so can just hang bed stuff out instead of washing.

Saw medium sized spider (size of Marina's hand) in tatami room. If it is up high and the kids aren't around I will usually get hub to deal to it but it was on the floor - very accessable to Marina. Had to take action with tissu box. Little sucker curled up into dead-spider ball.

And the Oscar goes to...

The sneaky little bugger.

Shou came in to carry out dead spider inspection. Just as he was crouching down to take better look it spreads its legs back out and walks away - Shou didn't even flinch. He just picked up tissue box and tried to whack sucker again. Not quite he reflexes and coordination that mummy has though so mummy had to deal to it again. It has since 'been disposed of'.

Shou is now watching some Thomas and Marina is trying to stand up holding on to the table. I am supposed to be getting shit sorted - Marina and I going to city today to travel agents to pay deposit and talk about travel insurance. Don't need to go in person but we need an outing. Also meeting friend for lunch. Is mean to be raining which not too happy about. Lashed rain in middle of night - thunder and lightening.

Murphey's Law - the day they start the concrete (yesterday) it it lashes rain - meaning all their patting down of the dirt in preparation to lay concrete today will have to be re-done as now all wet and squishy. I did the good thing and took tea and coffee and snacks in morning - left them there all day and picked up when got Shou from Kindy. Asked why they were starting when probably going to rain and it seems that they just want to get it done - crossed off their list of silly woman chores. Doesn't matter if concrete goes down on wet soil and probably starts cracking in a year - actually have no idea about concrete but no when they did out driveway we had to have a whole week of nice weather.

Ah well. Silly fuckers. They can just sort it themselves. Hub told me didn't need to worry about morning tea rah rah - but if I didn't do it you can be sure that someone would say I should have. It's a no-win situation.

Right is nearly half six - I beter get shit sorted. Is two hour trip to city - have to leave when take Shou to kindy as Granny K has an early start too. She has a vestling excursion. Oooh, the excitement. Bus load of vestlings, driven by a vestling, heading to city for night of sex drugs and rock and roll.

Wow sounds like you had quite the morning. Oh gosh.... no spider experiences... I think that reading that part just about made me want to throw up.. (haha sorry)

Well maybe you got your "action" out for the day so you are sitting and relaxing right now with a pina colada and a handsome man name Carlos fanning you with a palm leaf?

IT could happen!! Take care!

Fingers crossed it got sunny and everything went well!
