Scraps and tidbits from months in the past

A sheet of paper I found in my bag has the following notes on it:

There should be a parent's guide to not being hated by the staff at your childcare.
$30 for a dr.'s cert. means that I am staying at work despite feeling like I'm going to vomit.
Child A - "I make dinner, you make dinner." Child B - "Why you not make dinner every day?"
Little boy at work tells me he is making a baby in his tummy :) because his "other one died" :(
He says, "mummy nearly better", "daddy all better", "Timmy all better, so we can make another one"
Dalek boy calls the toilet w/ the curtain a TARDIS. I love this kid!
I'm sure my recent attack of health is what's making me feel sick.
Little T. says I am older than his grandma. Crap.
I tell all the children I am one hundred years old and one says, "My mum is older than you."
Makes me miss the kidlets from the old job. I still don't miss the psychotic room leader.
Unfortunately at this here new job, the managers/owners are total nutjobs. Yay! More on that another time. For now, I need to go eat more tim tams and tic tacs and other ti- ta-s.
Nom nom nom.

New Year's Empty Promises To Self

Yeah, pretty much.
I kind of didn't make any on NYE?
But I have somehow coincidentally eaten vegetables (SHOCK!) and drunk water (SCANDAL!) on more than one consecutive day. So I figure why not, I can call those resolutions for as long as I stick to 'em, and coincidence when I get bored.
I should probably also keep up this habit of brushing my teeth daily? Yeah, before they all fall out.
Other things:
- My deviantART and blogspot have been left somewhat unattended... Perhaps I ought to take photos worthy of dA and think thoughts worthy of the web? That'll do for some more resolutions.

- This evening, on the way home from work, A. and I went through the supermarshay to get some of those salad-in-a-box things and a 90c packet of plastic forks. Then instead of going home to eat in silence in front of our individual computers, we went down to the grassy edge of the lake and lay in the warm shade - as opposed to the baking sunshine - to eat our din-dins, read bits of newspaper, and generally relax. The point of this story, besides smugness that occasionally spontaneous and romantic things do happen in my relationship, is that this sort of thing ought to happen more often. That can be another resolution. Oh and once we've had our holimaday and paid of the credit card and oh god money woes breathe alright okay once we have enough money again we're striking up a new habit, of going to Zefirelli's on Sunday nights and taking home the leftovers for lunches.

- I should probably acquire some friends. Ones who aren't uni students or mothers! Much as I love my academically and maternally inclined friends <3 I need Moar friends, and these Moar friends need to be easily accessible on weekends (no assignments or young babbies!) I suppose the best way of going about this is

- Oh god I need a fucking hobby. A hobby that is not fucking. One with people besides myself and the Boy! (Although that could still be fucking...)

- Also a new job! Preferably one with people I get along with. Well, I discovered where all the good people are at work... at the other end, with all the good children and the relaxing rooms - the infants + young toddlers. Those bastards! They were hiding! Except of course I can't go and work down that end "for at least six months" (quote from director) and I don't think I can stand my job for that long.

Fortunately (out of dot point land now!) my holidays only ended last weekend, and I have another week off, the last week of January. A. and I are going to Melbourne for the week, spending two nights with the Boy's Melburnian friend and ex-housemate, two nights in a "mystery deal" 4.5 star hotel (which looks perfectly fine!... you find out what hotel after you pay) which was $129 a night. We love you! Weeee wuuuubbbb ooooo! And two nights in the best suite of a 5 star hotel that looks absolutely lovely, and was $600 for both nights! Exciting times. We plan to eat out a lot (food, that is...) , visit one of my maternally-inclined friends who lives in Melbourne, hopefully meet up with both my ex-Canberran, now Victorian friends, meet up with the Melbourne mx-5 club and generally potter around the CBD.
Very excited.

Alright. Time to stick with that other resolution about spending some time with the Boy. Time to... watch Mythbusters on our lounge mattress!

Bad, money-spending Caitlin

I was extra naughty today and bought a dress (plus a bajillion pairs of brightly coloured underwear and some mentos).

I love how it looks from the back :)

Songs Which I Know By Their Ad-Jingle-Cousins

INXS's By My Side is 'the NRMA song'
Creedence Clearwater's Heard It Through The Grapevine is the Sultana Bran song ("sultanas from the grapevine, make sultana bran taste so fine, sweet tasty sultanas from the grapeving, tastes so good I want it all the time")
Creedence Clearwater's Down on the Corner is the Makin' Mattress's song ("Quality items, always for less, factory direct is how we buy them, here at Makin' Mattresses!")
Hoodoo Gurus' What's My Scene is the "That's my team" song ("and another thing, I've been wondering lately, if I'm a bit crazy, for my rugby league team")
Andrew is going to kill me for these, but honest, there is nothing wrong with it! :P
