a busy day

malo e lelei

That's Tongan for Hello.  All the snow has melted and I was a bit worried but I googled and all is well in Tonga.  Lucky, I wouldn't want an angry horde of Tongan Rugby Players after me. :)

I was feeling a bit guilty about wishing for global warming though.  I mean Nagano is just heading in to the ski season and it's all about SNOW! SNOW! SNOW! here for the next 6 months or so.  So, here's a shout out to Hakuba Ski Resort.  Beautiful place.  Apparently.  :)

Back to the busy day.

This morning we played car swaps so DH could take the only car with snow tyres on at the moment and I would just wait until the snow melted later in the day before going out.  He called 2 minutes later laughing- there was no snow at all down on the flatland.  Poor Meg, she was all snowbooted up and ready to play in the snow at kinder. :(

Amy was out and about though:

I have just realised how many pictures I have of my kids running around in circles.  I swear they do do other things, as well.  Really. :)

I went back inside to get dressed and Amy started howling.  Really wailing.  I raced outside to see what was wrong and she screamed 'Don't step on the snow!!'  The measly centimetre of powder was melting quickly and everywhere she'd walked had already melted.  Poor kid was beside herself that she hadn't made a snowman yet.  So going for mummy of the year, in my pyjamas and polarfleece jacket I helped her scrape together enough snow and we made this:



An itty bitty snowman.

Then it was off for a peer pressure driven trip to McDonalds to eat a McFlurry.  How was it?  Well it was more like a dessert than a drink and I made a bit of an idiot of myself trying to suck it through the top of the funny square spoon. *^_^*  It was very good though. :)  It was the first time I've taken A to Maccas and she was ecstatic "Hamburgers AND chips!!"  Totally blew my whole too cool for school, I come here everyday look I was going for.  Oh well. 

Then it was off to my breast exam at the health centre.  A fun 2 hours of lining up, waiting, being gelled up, ultrascanned, wiped down, lining up, waiting, being powdered up, felt up, wiped down and shipped out.  Actually I was really impressed.  It was very thorough and respectfully done to boot. :)

Add banking, shopping, the post office and the kinder pickup, making chocolate biscuits with the girls and making dinner and it was a pretty full day.  

Now I'm off to do the dishes superquickly so I can sit down with DH and watch CSI and maybe even stay awake till the end this time!

So which CSI are you watching, like the Miami one or the NY one or which one? : D Now you got me curious. : ) We get some of them on satelite, but would you believe I have yet to have the chance to watch one yet.

And I like the pictures of your girls running around, even if just in circles. : )

And LOL, I can just picture you tying to suck through the spoon at Mickey D's. You are so funny to even admit that. Honestly.
I've had so many moments like that myself. For example, when someone waves and you wave at them and it turns out they were waving at the person BEHIND you. Oh my gosh! That's happened to me twice (when I was a teenager to uni age)! Now, I know better and never wave unless I am for sure, for sure. LOL! So yeah....I could see where you woulda sucked the spoon, honest mistake. And also, it was a thick spoon with a hole in it just like a straw, it could have been a straw!

And very sweet of you to go out and make a snowman. You are a cool mom!

Have a lovely weekend! : )

My internet is too slow to watch the video but I can picture the running around (Stupid Telstra!) and the snowman is very cute!

I am still like your girls when I see snow- running around, making snowmans, crying when it melts etc. I guess it is cos I never saw any til I was 19 and it is still a bit of a shock when it snows in Tokyo!!!

I think you & I would get on real well in real life as I am very likely to do exactly the same thing as you did with the straw.....

Is there more snow forcasted for the weekend? I think at least if it snows you get something good out of the bloody cold weather!!! hehe

Have a great weekend!

How are you finding nablopomo!?

Gina- We're watching CSI New York. We've done Las Vegas for 8 seasons nd needed change. It's one show we both like- DH for the nerdy science stuff and me for the whodunnit. Oh and Carmine Giovinazzo (sp) is nice eye candy and I think I'm developing a thing for his accent. phorrrrr!

And the straw/ spoon thing? It had me smiling as I was doing it- such a me thing to do. I also asked a famous footballer for his phone number as surety on his check when I was working PT at a hardware centre. Had no idea who he was and why he was getting so shirty with me!

Lulu- snow is still pretty fun for me too. At least for the first month anyway!!

And Nablopomo? I'm not sure I'm doing it right. I signed up, added the logo and then just blogged as normal. Does that sound right?
