      What's been goin' on?

      I haven't blogged in a while so I thought I'd stop being lazy and actually write something.
      Yesterday Amy C, Karin & I sorted through all the Cadbury (mmmm...cadbury...) chocolate for the Watoto Fundraiser, even though we'd sorted it out so that every box would have a bit of everything in it instead of getting a whole box of Freddo's or whatever and that the $ value would be the same we ended up with an extra chocolate which Karin & I thought we had found, but then last night I thought I'd better double check a couple of boxes and found some others that were wrong (all ones I'd originally packed) so Justin and I spent last night going through and recounting all 41 of the boxes and then repacking them to find the ones with extras, and it was literally the last box we checked out of all 41 that had the mistake in it! Grrr! But man how good did all that chocolate smell? Even in it's wrappers you can smell it! Yum!!!
      I've been making some handmade cards using Lisa's products for the Watoto Fundraisers as well and it's been so much fun, really addictive! We'll have to organise an afternoon where we can all sit down together and have some fun making more, (I've already made about a dozen but there's about 200 plus to make lol!) Mum's been our best customer, she's already bought 5 of them! Here are some pics of some of the cards I've made:


      Speaking of my mum being my best customer, most of you already know that I've been trying to get my kids clothing business going well I finally sold some stuff over the weekend (to someone other than my mum!) it was so fun to actually have 'real' customers, I was sold out of one size within 1 day, 1 person bought 4 of the same thing!!! I also had another sale overnight last night so that's really cool! I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere!

      Spud's been going well, really active, lots of kicking and somersaulting going on in there! I swear we've got a Footy, Karate or Gymnastics star growing in there! I go to the dr's tomorrow for my checkup, I'm dreading how much weight I've put on this month, last month I put on too much and I haven't been able to stop eating, I've been starving and it doesn't matter how much or how little I eat, I'm always hungry!!!

      I read the dilbert blog by Scott Adams pretty regularly and he had a link to this page the other day and I thought it was hilarious and I think all you Star Wars fans will too!

      Am I mean?

      On Saturday we were at Big W and the woman asked me when is my 'little boy(?!?!?) due?' I was so tempted to tell her I wasn't pregnant and what was she talking about, turn on the tears and the whole 'are you implying I'm fat?', to make her feel bad. I was polite and resisted temptation but then she was really annoying and kept telling me I was having a little boy and if by some 'small chance' I had a girl I could name it after her. I told her we weren't going to find out and she was convinced to the point i think she seriously thought of it as fact that we were having a boy. She was so annoying I wish I had pretended I wasn't.

      Me at the moment

      This song reflects how I feel at the moment:
      Baby I know your eyes see right through my disguise
      And no one can deny
      Baby that I’m the one whose love is no surprise
      And he can’t tell you no lie
      But there’s a secret I’ve been hidin’ I can’t keep it no more
      There’s this thing about himself he’s never told you before
      Baby!
      He needs to tell you something
      I don’t got a bellybutton
      Oh I need to tell you something
      Have you figure it out
      He don’t got a bellybutton
      Bellybutton no, oh no no
      Baby please don’t squeal, just tell me how you feel
      ‘Cause his love is for real
      And if you went away, my heart would never heal
      So to you he appeals
      There’s something missing in my middle and it’s hard to ignore
      There’s this thing about himself he’s never told you before
      Baby!
      He needs to tell you something
      I don’t got a bellybutton
      Oh I need to tell you something
      Have you figure it out
      He don’t got a bellybutton
      Bellybutton no, oh no no
      Bellybutton!
      Uh, uh
      Bellybutton!
      Uh, uh
      You say your bellybutton’s missing, there’s no reason for alarm
      It’s a common thing for gourds, it won’t do you any harm
      You’re technically a fruit and with that much being said;
      Your umbilical equivocal is up there on your head!
      You could opt for a prosthetic but of course you’d have to know
      It’d be covered by your shirt, but not your HMO
      Bellybutton!
      Uh, uh
      Bellybutton
      Uh, uh
      a stylish something absent from my midriff’s d├ęcor
      There’s this thing about himself he’s never told you before
      Baby!
      He need to tell you something
      I don’t got a belly button
      Oh I need to tell you something
      Have you figure it out
      He don’t got a belly button
      Belly button no, oh no no
      No belly button!
      My belly button has virtually disappeared:
      that faint mark in the middle is all that is left of my belly button, my tummy isn't that round I had to lean back to get the right light on my stomach so I could take the pic without the flash (it all goes white otherwise.)
      I better apologise to my mum for this post, I know how you feel about bellybuttons, sorry mum! :)
