    A while ago I thought it was cool I could say "I remember doing that 10 years ago"

    Then I was able to say "I remember doing that 15 years ago" and a little feeling of hmm that's a bit weird would come over me.

    Being able to remember 20 years ago came along and then I started feeling shocked at how fast that time went and the feeling of getting older set in.

    Now, I just realised I can remember things happening 30 years ago. Over 30 years ago actually..

    It's not funny any more.

    I even had to ask someone how to get into my Pinterest boards last night.

Thankfully a few more have turned up and I bought a packet of disposable ones that I keep in my desk for future emergencies.
    I assure you there is a big black hole where forks and odd socks disappear into nothingness. I work in hospitality and I assure you we have to constantly order BOXES of new cutlery, mostly forks because they simply disappear. And soup bowls?! We also have to order those by the box. And it's not like we have fancy ones that people take a liking to, it's a club bistro. It's totally ridiculous. The truth is, 75% go in the bin and the others go home in people's food containers.

    Ugh yes cutlery... where I work its teaspoons and mugs always dissappearing.
    I have my own mug I've brought in with my name on it, we have to wash all the dishes from the staff room and if I don't get to them in time and someone else puts it away in the staff cupboard instead of my drawer, someone else will use it and I get so territorial over it, and angry lol.

    And everyone is so lazy, they have the mentality of 'its someone else's job not mine' we have an ant problem in the staff room and its also my part of job to clean that room, often I clean it (during my break mind you) then 10 mins later the next lot come through and just leave **** everywhere, sugar all over the bench etc. I even left a sign asking to please clean up any spills to help keep ants away, not 20 mins later there was crap everywhere again, then they ***** to our department about the ants!

    I used to have that problem in the workplace too. Everyone seemed to think it was Admins job to clean the lunch room, and tried to make it my job (was EO to the Director) to organise an admin only roster to keep it clean. There were 3 admin staff out of about 80 on our floor.

    I organised a roster alright, and made it a branch responsibility to do it for a week each. And I enforced to too LOL. I don't care if you're the Director or Branch Manager. If you help make the mess, you clean it up! My staff and I had enough to do without doing your dirty dishes each day.

    Lunch time. So close to bed time. DS decided to take his nappy off and pee numerous times in the lounge room while I was cooking, threw his plate and his lunch went flying, decided he didn't want water so tipped his cup and spilt it everywhere. I think I yelled at him quite loudly. I'm so cranky today! Everything is irritating me! Sorry DS for yelling at you... Ill be happy when u go to bed though 😕

    I bought some awesome Wonder Woman fabric yesterday to make a 50's circle skirt. My sis said get 2 metres. I've come home and made the pattern I want and I actually need 3.5 so will need to go buy another 2 meters.

    It's so not the end of the world especially as I'm still pregnant so can't even wear it for another few weeks but now I have to trek back to spotlight tomorrow when I'm out and about. Oh well, might have to buy some extra fabric to make another skirt while I'm there 😝

    Well that's fantastic! Organized to do something, don't want to change it and just realised it clashes with something pretty big.

    Missed this, yeah I do now it seems my nesting has come in the form of sewing this time! In the last 4 days I've made 2 skirts for me, adjusted 6 headbands so I'll actually wear them, made a pin holder bracelet and then yesterday I made a pencil roll and got half way through a second. I think I'm very lucky this baby is a boy or I'd be in trouble with all the cute outfits I could make it.

    Before last week it'd been years since I'd sewed!

    The inconsistencies in the Bubble Guppy universe really (irrationally) annoy me! They were on a hovercraft on top of the water tonight?!? How are they not dying?? Another one was swimming at the top of the lake with a snorkel on!?! What is the snorkel for?!? Seriously! Stick the laws of your damn universe Bubble Guppies! You are NOT amphibians, you're fish! You breathe water!

    (I know I'm being totally irrational, I'm hormonal and tired. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).
