Lots of running around today first of all dropping off a fridge, then collecting a rabbit hutch and some clothing for the girl for next winter (thanks freecycle) plus about a kazillion other errands being done today. Rent and bills are paid, centrelink and child support are sorted. I had spoken to twitchy fingers about some clothes that I had to pass on to her little man and organised to drop if off today. What I hadn't organised or expected was 2 big bags of clothes for my little lovely for winter. I *love* hand me down. Love them. And I love the condition of hand me downs - the tops with strategically placed buttons, the jeans with iron on patches, stains etc. They are all good. But this bag. OMG. This bag was the jackpot! 5 pairs of shoes - my child is a shoe addict - and enough clothes to outfit her for the entire winter! I hope twitchy realises how much I appreciate it! Life is good.
Then we got home and got dinner organised. I love BBQs and I love BBQs even more since christmas when my wonderful nanna bought me a new 4 burner, hooded one for a combined chrissie/birthday pressie. Fresh corn, organic lamb chops/sausages and potato gems (thanks to George I am now addicted to processed potato products on the BBQ). Life is fantastic.
Post dinner requires a dip in the pool, playing with the kids and watching cricket on the telly (yep - I've given in - at least for the sport!) while sipping a glass of my absolute favourite wine and enjoying some grapes, still chilly out of the fridge. Life doesn't get any better!
Before I go I have to share a moment with you.... as we got home I exclaimed that I was going to "fire up the barbie" to which the 7 year old autistic child replies "mum, you can't fire Charlotte's dolls - she'll cry and it's not nice to make Barbie go on fire - she will get too hot". Bliss. Absolute Bliss.
