Winter Wrap up
Sep
21st

Hey, hi, how are you? I’ve been AWOL, I know. It was unintentional and due to a number of things, mostly because we have been on and off the Winter cold, flu, and tonsillitis merry-go-round since about June.

– Every cough and cold around has come home with my daughter, then she got a nasty bout of tonsillitis (which she’s never had before), and five straight days and nights of FORTY ONE DEGREE temperatures had us worried sick about her, plus the doctor thinks she also probably had Influenza A, which was going round child care centres in the weeks before she got sick (“did you give her a flu vaccine?” “….no because when I asked if you give them to kids, you said YOU DIDN’T GIVE KIDS FLU VACCINES”). Then my husband got the tonsillitis, something he also never gets, and was incredibly sick as well, and I’ve been feeling very run down and exhausted as well, so that last thing on my mind was blogging.

Luckily there’s been a bunch of good stuff… Continue reading ->

Mad Men

BEEEETTTTTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! That basically sums up how I felt about the second last episode of Mad Men. I didn’t always like Betty Draper, but I did always think that she was a complicated and interesting juxtaposition to the women Don worked with.
