So much to do, so little time. 

Apologies if I'm meant to catch up with you! I've had it on my to do list to make contact with a few people but life has been so crazy I haven't managed it I'm afraid :/ Miss you though and one day we actually will meet up again! :)

I've just gotten back into flute lessons again (had about three months off because my teacher had a baby), so now we need to get preparing for my next exam, and decide when it's realistic to sit it. Sitting it sooner means I can go for my diploma earlier, but would require a significant amount of time in practice, and already my to-do list is growing faster than I can keep up with. 

I'm juggling a few jobs now -- seriously why can't they all fit seamlessly into my schedule?! So yeah, I'm getting a bit of practice at adjusting my schedule (haven't turned up to the wrong place yet!! :P) but thankfully at this stage I have managed to work things out so I don't have to drop anything.

Nearly every night now we have to work out who's going where the next day, and with which vehicle. With four drivers, three vehicles, more and more places to be, small parking spaces that make it super difficult to park the van, and me not being able to drive the manual, it's becoming increasingly difficult to work out through vehicle logistics. So if anyone is giving a car away, I'd love to hear from you ;P hahaha

Right now I'm sitting here typing this while Mum has been cooking, and is now serving dinner. I can see a lounge chair dissapearing under a mound of washing waiting to be folded by me later tonight. Either tonight or tomorrow I'll have to give Diana another recorder lesson; we're putting in some extra ones to prepare for her exam later this month. And I didn't manage to do the irnoning last weekend so guess what I'll be amusing myself with in my spare time? :P lol

Oh and I've been thinking it might be fun to host a giveaway of some sort on here at some point, but based on the amount of comments I usually get it seems a bit pointless :P

Xj if you're reading this, I'm now 54% fluent in French apparently. Just sayin'.


  1. Looking for a car? Hmm, I think that before long there'll be a BMW going cheap somewhere North of you... :P Haha, jokes, hope not, actually.

    Why can you not drive a Manual, did you sit your license in an automatic, or do you just not like it?

    1. Hahaha yeah but if Kayger can't afford it then I definitely can't :P Hopefully it doesn't end up costing too much too be fixed; it seems like it's been a pretty good car for her so far.

      My license doesn't say anything (only restricted does); I've had a few lessons in it but can't drive it safely yet and I don't really enjoy driving it either tbh.

    2. Haha, yeah, nah, it is a good car, gets her where she needs to be. Some cars seem to have phases of things just expiring at around the same time, then once you've got those fixed, you have a few more years till the next lot starts. Painful at the time, though.

      Right. Yeah, I've only ever driven a manual, and because the clutch swaps for a brake in an automatic, I don't think you'd really want to keep swapping from one to the other, you'd want to have one and stick with it. I reckon, anyway, I just imagine it would be easier... :P

    3. Yeah that's right, hopefully once these few things get fixed it will run well for a few more years!

      Mmm it doesn't swap (thankfully!), manual just adds an extra pedal. Switching vehicles can be a pain though, already I drive two vehicles that have the park brake on the floor (instead of a handbrake--where a manual has the clutch) and felt like I just about pulled a muscle when I tried the put the brake on in the other vehicle, which actually has a handbrake . . . lol.
