5 Things I have learnt this week (even though it is only Tuesday)

I know it is only Tuesday, but this week has yielded many truths already. So I am pleased, no STOKED, to present to you the 5 things that I have already learnt this week. (Even though it is only Tuesday)

Clive Palmer is a dangerous soul. Did you watch Q and A last night? It should be compulsory viewing for all Australians as it will collectively give us the tools to make more considered opinions when it comes to voting.

I was in a pickle last night at about 5pm when I realised that I had not taken the chicken out of the freezer to defrost. This is when a big Facebook page comes in handy. I asked the crew what to do. And it turns out that the best way to defrost chicken quickly and without poisoning your family, is to place it is a zip lock bag and immerse it in cold water. Takes about 30 minutes. No, no need to thank me. My complete pleasure!

I really need to stop thinking that I have to have some DNA testing done on my boys in case one of them was mixed up at the hospital. I mean you couldn’t get two different people if you searched the entire planet for a decade! I spent some time emptying the contents of my wallet at Blochs on the weekend. (Bloch’s is a dance wear shop) Jack is not wearing uggs, but boots to go over his ballet shoes. He has gone through 3 sets of ballet shoes this year alone.

Growing? They are like weeds!

And as one lovely reader pointed out, they are different flowers from the same garden. I kind of like that analogy!

Unlike the much hyped Y2K bug, Rainmageddon is very much NOT an urban myth! It is pissing down like God has decided to let her bath overflow. But I no complain. Ze garden, she is thirsty!

Five

Oh. My. God. This is HUGE! Please remember that you read it here first.

Our house has been cleansed of loom bands. The looming stations and boxes have been given away. Because….. wait for it….
