Happy Mothers Day

Well an update on my last really whiney post. Steve is now working. It is not the job he really wanted, but it is work. He has been there for 3 weeks now, so at least the pressure has lessened considerably. TAFE is going well. We just had 2 weeks off on school hols and that has helped. I passed one of my major assignments - giving a 20 min lecture on a special need to my class and supporting the talk with a DVD on the subject. Mine was food allergies so I found it great to educate more people on this subject and I got lots of questions after from the class and even the lecturer (which hadn't happened to anyone else) so I was really pleased I was able to educate even more people.

Well I am wishing all those hard working mothers out there a great Mothers Day! And I wanted to share with you some of the things I have learnt from my mother over the years.

My Mother taught me-

About the science of Osmosis - "Close your mouth and eat your dinner" (OMG I have actually said this to my child!!)

About Contortionism - "will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck"

About the weather - " This room looks like a tornado went through it"

About the Circle of Life-" I brought you into this world and I can take you out"

About Recieving- " You are going to get it when you get home"

About Anticipation- " Just wait until you get home"

About appreciating a job well done-" if you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning"

About time travel-" If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into next week" and lastly about Irony- " Keep crying and I will give you something to cry about".

I love you mum, hope you have a wonderful day.
