1. Post Ms Maples' Friday Round Up for last week. With Master J on school holidays, chauffeuring him to play-dates, having what felt like the neighborhood at my house, sleepovers, crafting, bake-a-thons, etc, all while somehow attending to Baby A, didn't give me a single minute to even collect my thoughts. God bless teachers and all they do -- so, so grateful school went back Monday ... if Master J ever gets there that is! Details below.
2. Get a haircut last Thursday. Had to leave the salon just before we were about to start the cut, as Baby A refused to go down for his afternoon nap with my neighbor and had worked himself up into an hysterical frenzy. Thankfully, the color had been done and my hair washed. The girls at the salon had my hair blow dried in about 5 minutes -- it was all hands on deck and blow dryers on maximum heat/speed!
3. Get a much deserved manicure and try a new line of Shellac-type nail polish on Saturday - Color Couture. This time I got the call to come home from Hubby who was visiting over the weekend. Baby A was SHREIKING in the background. I had picked my polish out and everything - it was called Ms Fancy Pants -- pink with glitter!!!
Note: Manicure was at the same salon where I get my hair done. I had to leave mid-service twice in one week. Thankfully, the girls like me. They suggested I just bring Baby A with me next time. Good idea.
4. Go for an early dinner on Saturday night with Hubby and the boys to St Katherine's - the Mediterranean restaurant of acclaimed Australian chefs George Calombaris and Shane Delia.
