Why do my girls have to fight with each other so much? I know it is frustrating for both of them. One is too young to do all the things her big sister can do, and the other gets annoyed by the fact that her little sister doesn't understand the importance of leaving the teddies exactly where they are because they are in the middle of a picnic. But do they have to scream and pull hair?
I have this problem with clumsiness. OK, I've said it. It's out there. It is very frustrating for those who spend a lot of time with me, and I do feel for people like Rohan, and my Mum who put up with it for the 22 years that she lived with me. I can remember spending a week away with my closest girlfriends in my mid-twenties and mentioning it, to which they said they hadn't noticed. Bless them. I think I spilt about five drinks over the course of that week, (granted they were alcoholic) but there was no denying it after that. I appear to go through certain periods of high clumsiness every so often, and I have been contemplating why that occurs? Is it from lack of sleep, lack of a certain vitamin, lack of sex, lack of something? I haven't managed to figure it out. Whatever the cause, I seem to be going through one at the moment, having sliced the top of my finger off with a newly sharpened knife and setting fire to an oven mitt within a 24 hour period. Thankfully I am experienced enough to act quickly when these happenings occur. Although I have to say fire isn't usually my forte. I hope this phase is done now.
I just cleaned my car. What a horrible job. With bits of biscuits, Macca's chips, banana peel and general rubble smooshed into every surface, it took someone at the carwash place less time to clean their commercial bus than for me to vacuum mine. Wonder how long this cleanliness will last? Couple of days?
Sure it's been raining. Raining and cold. The wind stinging with rain, coming in from all directions. Dams are full, tanks overflow, roads are hazardous. But it puts a big smile on our faces. It brings promise that this summer will be a very, very good season.
