just a bit of blog babble

So, just felt like using my blog for a bit of babble. I do a lot of posts with big photographs, capturing different markets, designers and handmade products etc. Which I LOVE! And watch this space, as there are a few more to come soon :) But this evening, I just felt like a little release of information from my brain in the form of a blog post.
I have so much going on at the moment. Ha Ha, laugh those who know me, as this is a constant state of Deni being. I am very tired, and haven't slept well the last few nights, so feel a little more overwhelmed with my life than usual.
Today. For example.
I won a one month membership to Platinum Fitness First, so I decided to take it up. I haven't been regulalry exercising for some time, and have put on a few kgs over winter. I joined up yesterday and started this morning at 7.30am I came away on such a high! The gym I have joined is on Wanda beach at Cronulla, so the views are stunning. I really felt that I achied high quality ME time! I grabbed my free newspaper on the way out the door, and a couple of caps before heading home.
Just after 9am Riley-Sue arrived. She is a Year 11 student who helps me produce a 32page mini magazine for our local community. We work on it all day of the last Saturday of each month (except December) - we have submissions from members of the community, regarding what has been happening over the last month, there are local businesses who advertise, and then we also have our own articles that we write. Riley-Sue does a "Top 5" each month and then we also have feature article with colour photographs. Last month Riley-Sue wrote about a local Youth Service that held an activity day in the village through the school holidays, with a visit from Cronulla Sharks players, and this month I am doing up wrap up of the election day BBQ and Market that was held at our local public school.
9.30am I hop in the shower, then put the kids in the bath and clean the bathroom.
10am Eat cereal for breakfast.
11am popped down the road with my daughter Amalia, so she could attend her friend's 5th birthday party. I stayed for 40minutes, before apologising, and heading back home to the Riley-Sue and the Village News.
12.30 Hubby leaves to head up to Bunnings whilst Rile-Sue and I continue working, and as the car pulls out of the driveway, little man Tae wakes up crying, and very clingy. Stop for lunch.
1.15pm Mum pops by and takes Tae with her to visit Great Nan, so that work can be achieved. Riley-Sue continues working on the computer, an I start tracing stars on the fusible paper {can't think of the name of it off the top of my head} I have a few hundred or so to trace, iron on to fabric and cut out, for all our Cheeky Chickies spring summer Rise'n'Shine shorts and tanks.
1.45 Amalia is delivered home from the party - full of sugar - and starts whinging for more food and a new barbie dvd from the video store. Continue tracing stars and hubby feeds Mali more sugar to keep her quiet, after mummy has told her the only option for food is banana.
3.45pm Mum arrives back with Tae. Put him to bed, then head out to drop Riley-Sue off to meet the minister's wife and set up for Sunday School tomorrow, then continue on with Amalia in the car to pick up a dvd.
4.45 heading back home. Stop off at shopping centre for fruit, beer, and to enquire with the Pizza guys as to why they haven't paid their advdrtising bills for the Village News, as we had to pull their ad last month. Mali fallen asleep in the car.
5.00 Home. Leave Amalia in the car asleep. Hop on the computer and bring up Facebook, as have been invited to guest {spam} the FB page for the gorgeous Handmade Kids Tae awake , so feed him some dinner and then a little bike ride outside as daddy cooks the chicken on the BBQ.
Head out to the car to wake up Mali, and head inside for dinner
5.45pm early dinner. Mali having a meltdown. Settle her and manage to get a small amount of food in to her.
6.15pm another Mali meltdown. Suggest that she head to bed early tonight. teeth brushed, pj's on, which are removed shortly after lights go out, so that she can dress up in all manner of bizarre coordinates. Taeland having a meltdown now.
6.45pm Writing this post.
Still need to finish tracing stars, as they all need to be finished by Monday morning to take over the manufacturing team. Still need to finish the Village News, and get it to the printer by tomorrow night, Monday at the latest.
So. A day in the life of Deni.
Hope you have had a chance to enjoy the day ! Happy to chat, leave comments, or questions as you like :)
Thanks for reading my babble !
