Birthday Wishes

Monday, 10 September 2012

This morning, Hunter asked me what kind of birthday cake I wanted. I told him I wasn't worried about a cake, I just wanted him to do his homework. It seems lately all I do is fight over homework. And work.

I'm on maternity leave and I swear I work harder now than I did at my real job. And it's not just because I have Scarlett to look after. It's because I'm trying to write more than ever to make extra money for bills. Soon I hope that extra money will go to saving for our move home, but for now there's too many bills to pay.

So what do I want for my birthday today? I mean short of winning the lottery, but I'm not greedy, just a couple hundred thousand would be enough to buy a house and move us home....

Believe it or not, I want to write. I want to get as many articles written today as possible. I need to write 10 each week and I haven't written any in the last two weeks thanks to our vacation. I could do with a few 'kid-free' hours before I'm too dead to form complete sentences.

Of course, I'm writing this while sitting in front of the school waiting to pick up Hunter. Then there will be homework to do and dinner to cook, baths and bedtime stories...

In Rome I laughed in front of the Jimmy Choo shop. My hubby said maybe if we could afford it he'd buy me some, but I told him it was ok. Nearly six years ago I chose Terrible Two's over Jimmy Choo's. And I'm happy with that decision. Although sleeping in a bit today would've been nice. We have to start getting ready for school at 0730 so there was really no reason to be up at 0600. Oh well...

I'd say it's fairly unlikely I'll get my wish this year. Maybe I'll re-evaluate and come up with something more realistic. Like both kids in bed on time. Or homework done before dinner.

Or a hug...

I should definitely be able to pull that one off.
