52 weeks of lists

I'm going to try to make less "anxiety-causing" lists (*) this year and I'm going to play along with this 52 weeks of lists linky thingy instead on the beautiful blog MeetmeatMikes.  Ally from  everydaymiracles has inspired me - thanks Ally.

(*)...Do you know these lists?  The ones you make to ensure you don't forget something, with the idea that you'll relax once you have the list written and in progress...but the whole thing ends up making you a little stressed, because now you have lists of things to do and feel like you can't relax until they're done?  Overthinking much?

Last week: the good, the bad & the ugly

The good...
Bean's Mummy: "Let's stick that on the wall with some blue tac hey?"
Bean: "No thanks Mummy, I want green tac pleeeeeeeease."

The bad...
The look on the 18-yr-old waxing chick's face, mid-wax, as Bubba started to kick and move about, twisting my tummy into all kinds of bizarre shapes.  I'm sure she was freaking out Bubs was about to shoot out - she waxed SO quickly once the kicking began!

The ugly...
Me trying to use the self-serve checkouts at the supermarket (note: all are being used and there are about 4 people waiting in line too).  Bean decides it would be nice to pull her heavily pregnant Mummy's skirt down and give everyone a nice big flash of hideously stylish nana-knickers! I can laugh about

Anything funny going on in your world?  Hope the weekend was fun! x

The Irony

If only Bean could read my last post.  We've just landed in terrible-2 land I think.  I want, I want, I Mummy, no Mummy, no Mummy!  Tantrums-galore!  Not feeling up to the challenge either being 5 weeks away from giving birth.  Ho-hum, this too shall pass...
