I think just about everyone in town is aware that I’ve had a shit week. That said, I’m up to mortaring the boundaries and I’m feeling a lot, A LOT, better. And so it goes.
So, apart from losing my mind, we also celebrated Max’s 11th birthday this week. To be honest, I think knowing that my wayward first born has been whinging at me for ELEVEN years was probably what set me of. (That was a little joke. Funny ‘cos it’s true.)
Max had two mini birthday celebrations this year; his first year without a massive party. Last weekend he took three besties to the Australian Reptile Park in the pouring rain, which was about as exhausting as it sounds, but we did have the whole park to ourselves. This was followed by a sleepover where about 2.5 hours of actual sleep occurred. Then on his birthday on Wednesday he had three other friends for dinner, followed by dessert dining at Max Brenner. He’s living the dream, that kid. At least we have that.
Here’s the amazeballs cake Max’s Aunty Zia (the best aunty zia in the whole wide world™) had waiting for him after his schlep to the reptile park. It’s his favourite snake – an Amelanistic Burmese Python. Max was in love and didn’t want to eat it but then he recovered and had three pieces. He rallies, my boy.And look who he got for his birthday! This is Charlie and there’s another little fella called Jimmy, who was resting when this shot was taken. Best birthday ever.
Other things that had me this week:
Nothing much, except the kindness of strangers and the incredible support to be found in the motherhood. Happy mother’s day everyday, mums.
Oh, and we’re having leftovers of this tonight, which makes me happy.
