So much to say and so little time to write

It feels like forever since I was last here.

Though really it was only a few days ago since I last posted about the things I know about dentists. There are few things that I would like to add to that list now that I think about it some more. Or rather as I have been healing from my wounds.

I will add it to the ever growing list of things I want to write about it. It is nice to know that I have so many thoughts to chose from should I ever be graced with the time to idly write.

Of course it is also incredibly frustrating that I never seem to be able to find that elusive time.

But I digress.

Back to my few days absence from blogging that feels near on an eternity. Mind you those few days have been jam packed with all kinds of actions and emotions. Both in terms of my own little corner of the world and the world at large.

My head is just bursting with all that has come with the announcement of a royal baby. Something that should have been nothing but a joyous occasion forever tainted by society at large ridiculous behaviour. This also added the the ever growing list I mentioned above.

There is no denying that the festive season is well and truly underway here. Whether or not I, or any one else for that matter, is actually ready for it however is another question altogether.

Between pre Christmas dinners, catch ups and get togethers, not to mention all that the final days of the school year entails, this rather shy social butterfly feels like she is flitting from event to event barely stopping to smell the flowers let alone taste the pollen. Every thing is just go, go, go.

Which as with most in life comes with both good and bad.

It is good in the way I don't have a chance to stop and think about all that needs to be done. Bad in the way that there is so much to be done and so many people to see. For the most part I am just doing. There are only three more days of school left. Three days that apparently can not be missed because they have the talent show, awards ceremony and year six final assembly in them.

After that I am sure things will slow a little.

You know before the rush of Christmas really starts.


I can't really believe that my baby, who is really eleven and not at all a baby, will soon have completed her primary school education. Where oh where did those years go? This too is on my never ending list. I get slight heart palpitations when I think that next year I will have a middle school student in the house

For now though it is Tuesday and I am blogging 
with all the cool kids that make
the coolest linky around.


  1. I am hearing you, my dear!
    Everything is so rushed this time of year, it is hard to take the time out to actually enjoy it.
    It must be quite emotional with 'your baby' leaving primary school behind. I can't even imagine it, but I know that it will be happening to me too, way too soon.
    Big hugs lovely :)

  2. I've never felt so overwhelmed at this time of year as I have this year. I don't know why, just seems like there is something every single day and I just want to say NO! And WOW...high school!?!? We have a meeting at the primary school today to figure out if Mr 4 is ready to start in Jan. He'd be the very youngest.

  3. I hear you. I feel like I'm running the whole at the moment but nothing seem to be done ...
    I have nominated you for The Sunshine Award! See here: http://thecraftyexpat.wordpress.com/2012/12/10/the-sunshine-award/

  4. I totally agree - feeling so overwhelmed and just trying to take one day at a time. I have pencilled in toilet ting training for January - that's giving me palpitations too :)

  5. Holding your hand as you watch your baby graduate Primary school. The youngest of my four sons is graduating to :( cant believe how fast time has gone by....

  6. I feel like my holidays haven't really started! It is festive, yes, but quite overwhelming with activities and events. I need to slow down, gather my thoughts and enjoy the season.

    Happy Holidays Rhianna! hope you manage to catch a breather before the start of the Christmas rush too ;p

  7. I have problems balancing the busy-ness of every day life, let alone this time of year. Make sure you stop and breathe lovely xx

  8. I have been really relying heavily on my lists and schedules....it still feels like I'm losing the battle :)
    This week, I said to hell with it and will get done what I do. If it can be done without, then it's gone. Yep, I'm being ruthless and feeling pretty calm about it.

  9. I'm a little over all the social engagements myself. I get social fatigue so easily!

  10. I've decided a while ago to be picky about social engagements, especially this time of year. There's no point in me (or for anyone involved) showing up if I'm not up to it. Take care of you x

  11. Try to breathe Rhianna and ensure you try to look after yourself - it can be so crazy at this time of the year!

  12. Naaaw, if you are shy this time of year can be so painful! I don't how you feel about your baby though, mine just finished primary school too and I can't believe my chubby little kindergarterner is heading off to high school next year!

  13. This time of year certainly is crazy!! I only go to a few Xmas do's. Too many stresses me out. I've become a bit pickier and more aware and focussed on looking out for me as I've got older! I like the time of year that comes after Christmas a bit better I think. It's when you chill, relax, have a holiday (hopefully). My youngest just finished Year 12 this year. I now have no kids left at school. Weirdest feeling ever! Hope you have a fabulous Christmas!

  14. I like the valuable info you supply on your articles.
    I will bookmark your blog and take a look at again here regularly.
    I am moderately sure I'll be told many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the following!
