Self indulgent blather..


This one's for all those who think that blogging is just self indulgent blather. It's just a quick post to see whether my feedburner feed (now on my sidebar as "subscribe") is picked up properly by bloglines .

10 THINGS I DID TODAY
It's the type of day that I have about once a month, but people think Stay At Home Mums have all day every day.
1. Scanned my teddy.
Work colleague reminded me in an email to bring in my teddy for Library's Midwinter Lunch, which has a Play School theme. She used many bear smilies in her post. I scanned Coco just to show her what a real teddy looks like. My Co-Pilot has warned me that posting it here risks creating a "Scan your Ted" meme.
2. Watched Play School with my 3 year old
A rare treat, as usually we are a "One hour of TV between 5 and 6pm household".
3.Folded 5 baskets of laundry
Only half a week's worth.
4.Sewed up the 8 year old's school jumper
5. Went to dance class at the gym
Thursday nights, 6:30 pm. Body jam class.
6.Watched "Vera Drake" on DVD while the 3 year old napped
How else would I get through 5 baskets of laundry without climbing walls?
7.Cleaned up a couple of day's dishes from the kitchen, then cooked dahl, rice, poppadums, corn
8.Was hot water bottle for Nougat, the furless Cornish Rex cat all day
Yes, I did 2., 3, 4., and 6, 9. and 10. all with the cat stuffed up my jumper.
9. Listened to 8 year old's reading, timed his timed reading passage, helped him stay on track while he did his homework
10.Made an appointment with a Real Estate Agent to appraise my dad's house

Took at least 5 minutes to show up on bloglines. I actually read some of the other feeds I take and got so lost reading Jenny Levine's summaries of the ALA conference sessions, that I forgot to look. Probably more like 10 mins.

Hey, I've got a polar teddy too! It must be about 35 years old, and it's still in one piece even though my kids sometimes play with it.

Yes, that's about the vintage. She's called Coco because my friend who had a brown teddy called her bear "Cocoa". She had a lot more fur before she went to the 4 year old hairdresser. (Me).

I took a picture of my teddy bear, it's here: My teddy bear. His name is "teddy". I know, I know... I was a creative genius as a child :-)
