So Long! Farewell!

Righto, I'm off on holiday. I won't be back until the beginning of April. Got a huge trek ahead of us. First to Brisbane, then the Hunter Valley and then Canberra - then back home again.

SOOOO looking forward to the break. I am physically and mentally shattered. It's been a busy few weeks.

Ameliah was dedicated on Sunday and then we had the immediate family over for lunch afterwards. It was very fun.

It has been really hot this last week, and there doesn't seem to be any sign of it letting up. So we are going up north to cool off!! :)

It shall be fabulous. Will tell all when I get back.

Very serious instruction.

I got a new stroller the other day. And the instructions that came with it were absolutely HILLARIOUS.

I thought I would share some of the funniest ones.

1. For your child's safety must be of good belt.
Does this mean whip em if they dare budge from their seat with a belt? :)

2. The baby more than six months old should be avoided, by the use of shoulder up.

3. Reminded not to let their children out of the courthouse or legislative seats war.

Yes I'm serious. Make em sit in there untill they confess - or launch a nuclear bomb!

4. When all children, caregivers should be conducted
Can you imagine a toddler with a baton??

5. Car is not moving, the wheel must be stopped, and to avoid a dangerous slide in.

6. Click the correct use of bicycle use, to avoid any risk of the occurence.

Does it stir up a feeling of paranoia in you? Does it?

Regular checks your baby carriages, whether screw lossening, aging parts, materials and vehicle sutures ruptured, and when necessary to timely replacement and maintenance.

7. Should avoid undue influence or strong - they affect life

8. The rotating bodies to apply to remain flexible rotation.

Now I don't know about you but ruptured sutures, influence and rotating bodies just makes me a little wary on using this stroller!! LOL

There are some gems in these instructions, but unfortunately not precious enough to keep. I'm chucking em out now.

DH said it's worth buying chinese made things just so you can laugh at the crappy instructions. I wonder how they translate? Make it up as they go along? Or try to find the most whackiest sentences just to mess with our heads?? Either way, I had a good chuckle. I hope you did to.

I've been tagged....

My ol' mate Donna just tagged me. So I am "it"...

The question is Three reasons why you blog?


1. I blog to record the happenings in this house - to record memories of when the kids were just kids. To remember when E first smiled or when Milly took her first steps. I wanted the kids to know what they were like when they were younger - and what I was like when they were younger. If anything should ever happen to me, Daz knows to print this off as a book, and to give to the kids to read all about me, and all about me as their Mummy. It's a way of preserving the memories - especially when I am old and prone to forgetting.

2. I blog so I don't have to make up fancy newsletters, and have lengthy phone calls and emails to distant friends (which I do NOT have time for!) My friends who live interstate and internationally just have to click on my blog link to see what's been going in in this household. That was one of the reasons why I started blogging in the first place - so that Kimbo could see what I was up to whenever she could get online.

3. I blog because I can type a heck of alot faster than I can write. I'm a time saver - wasted time and effort annoys me. So writing half a page in a diary would take about as much time as it takes me to type 2 x a4 pages. Do the math.

So now I have to tag 3 people. That's the deal. So I tag...

Sue, Jo and G.

Right I am outta here dudes.
