Things I Know

I know I have already posted once today but if the truth be told I actually wrote it yesterday. Only I couldn't post it yesterday because I had already published a post.

Influx I know but emotional filled days will do that to you I guess.

I had planned on writing something later on today because sharing the things I know on a Friday is one of my most favourite things to do. However opportunity presented itself now so now I am writing.

I know that getting up before 5 am is very bloody early. Very bloody early.

As early as it was it did actually seem like a rather good idea. I know done five hours later it is still too early to decide whether or not it was actually a good idea or not.

The upside to being up well before the sparrows fart was I got to read the book I received yesterday.

Which book is that I hear you say?

This one
Complete with a special message inside from the author herself. Having a friend that is a published author is nearly as exciting as being an author. Nearly by not quite though I imagine.

I know that ignoring my children so I could finish reading the book was probably not my finest parenting moment. Neither was the lateness with which they eventually arrived at school with.

I know that two days ago I may have been a worthy recipient of mother of the year with my cupcakes for Zany to take to school for her birthday but that award has since been rescinded after this mornings efforts.

I know that going for a run this morning did seem like a good idea until I was nearly done and realised that Teapot had fallen asleep.

On the upside though sitting here

while I penned this most of this masterpiece did make everything seem ok for a little while.

I know that I actually wanted to call this post Things I Know About Being Sad, because honestly the last two days I have managed to take sad to a whole new level. I didn't because as sad as I might have been the last two days I know there is also a whole heap about sadness that I don't know and quite frankly I am happy with that.

I know that tomorrow is a brand new day and while I would like to say I know I won't be as sad I know that is also just not the case.

I know that my reasons for being sad tomorrow and the next day are vastly different from my current reason for being sad. Sadly though now is not the right time to be sharing much about that as it involves a person who is rather against the whole sharing on the internet concept.

I know that come Monday or Tuesday I may not be feeling as sad and I can't wait to get there.

I know that means I pretty much want to fast forward through to the weekend and that is really just crazy talk. Who in their right mind wants to fast forward through the weekend?

I know if you know stuff you should totally come and join in the coolest linky ever over at


  1. I always admire people who get up at sparrows fart. I also think they're completely insane but I'm in awe of that particular brand of insantity.

    Hope your weekend leaves you a little less sad. xo

    1. Yes I admire those that do it willingly as well!

  2. I hope the sadness dissipates soon Rhi - wishing you and your family a fabulous weekend together!

  3. Love getting up early, it's quiet and you get the paper first. Sending you happy thoughts. xxx Rae

    1. Yes there are some advantages to the early morning rises, though it is not often you can beat the girls to getting up, the middle one especially loves early morning. Thanks for the happy thoughts as well lovely

  4. I love that you made the kids late to keep reading. That makes you such an awesome friend in my opinion

    1. It was awful, I was so close to finishing and I didn't want to put it down. It is one of the reasons I don't read often actually, I just get so absorb in what I reading everything else ceases to exist and matter. It really is a great book though, well done lovely

  5. I am finally here and able to reply! I've opened this page sooo many times over the past week, and if it wasn't kids or work taking me away it was my darn internet connection dropping out!

    Sorry lovely xx

    Jess' book was pretty good aye :) I struggled to put it down because I wanted to keep reading lol I did eventually finish it though, and can't wait for the next installment!

    I think being sad is a good emotion to work through - as stupid as that sounds - it lets your mind and body work through whatever it is bothering you. But when it goes on for too long it's very draining... and that's not good.

    Hope you're feeling much better now :)

  6. Hope the sad went away, my dear :-)
