Took nearly the whole day yesterday to regain my normal constitution. Hub was out at election stuff all day and the kids were at kindy and Ryu, bless him, slept for three hours in the morning. The lunch time chime woke me up. He had obviously been awake for a little while but was by no means nutting out. Talking loudly to himself would be a better description perhaps.
I tried the Bollywood dance dvd in the afternoon and for the first fifteen minutes or so I kept expecting someone to run into the room laughing saying I was on candid camera - that's how comical the dvd was. Come on now, stand there and shake your head, feed the chickens and walk like a gorilla. Some of the foot moves required a bit of coordination and I was forever cursing the camera man who was more intent on bare belly shots and pushed up boob shots. The lead dancer oozed sex despite never saying a word. None of them did in fact. It was all voice overs.
Despite this, I did end up getting a sweat up, although that could have been because was doing in mid day heat and sav blanc was dripping out my pores - even the ones on my toes. Sassymoo suggested I take a vid and upload it onto youtube. I know we all need a laugh as much as the next person but I'm kind scared it would take off like the Susan Boyle thing and next thing you know Oprah would have me feeding the chickens and walking like a gorilla on prime time TV. Tell you what though. I WILL take a video of it and if and when I lose 16 kg I will let you see it - but I might have to move to wordpress or something so I can password protect it for followers only. Kind of defeats the purpose of everyone getting a good laugh out of it though :)
Today was pretty full on. The kids have all been asleep since 6:45 pm. Wow. Silence in the house. That's what happens when neither Shou or Marina have afternoon naps and Ryu's only lasts 45 minutes. Absolutely buggered come dinner time.
Hub took Shou and Marina out this morning - to vote in the election (him not them) and then to the park and back past the supermarket for bentos for lunch. Ryu had a good sleep while I cleaned the house, did a couple of loads of washing and baked some more ginger crunch for our afternoon guests - the same guests I had made it for last Monday but who didn't get any because it wasn't set properly and by the time it was we were so engrossed in talking that I forgot.
Anyway, some pics...
Cherish Child in NZ.
Bugger off you lot. Have an early night.
