Idiots & Swimming Pools!



Firstly, the idiot. Me. Good Grief! I just can't believe how much of a moron I am sometimes (ok... probably more than sometimes!) A friend wanted to take his girlfriend to the new stage production "Miss Saigon", and asked if we'd like to go with them. I said "Sure!" He said, "can you book it, I don't have the internet"... ok... so I see the real reason he wants us to come?!! I spent about an hour, pouring over the seats, and doing several "dummy" bookings to see where we'd be seated, for the different "class/pricing" tickets. I finally hit the jackpot and scored great seats, 10 rows back from the stage, and in the middle of the row! Wicked! I gave myself and enormous pat on the back, and sent a message to friend to say how great I was!!!

That was until moments later, when I was seated upon "the throne"... that it occured to me, that the date that I'd booked for... was the very day Mr T was going overseas on business!!! OMG!!! I'm a friggin moron!!! I had to then ring friend and tell him, that I'm not as good as I initally thought!!! I'm waiting to hear from the ticket people, whether or not I can move the day the tickets are for. If not, I've got two friends on my hit list to bring as my "date"... of course, they have to have money, coz I'm not paying for them!!!! I never said I was cheap?!!

So moving on from my idiocy... I took the kids to the local Swimming Pool today, and met one of H-man's classmates there. His mate has twin 3yr old sisters, and they are just cute-as-cute-can-be! They are so NOT identical! They have quite different body shapes, one has dead straight hair and the other tight curls!!! H-man says, before we saw them this morning, "I just love *mates* sisters!!!" (*insert mates name here!) We had a fantastic time. I got to chin wag with mates Mum. And the kids got to swim (currently their most favourite thing to do... other than play Wii & playstation!!!) We thought we'd both head off around 3pm, but at 2pm it absolutely bucketed down with rain!!! We all went running for cover (the Mum's who straighten their hair, anyway!) To keep the changes of clothes dry & the towels dry! So we packed up early, kids got changed & we bought them and icecream.

Oh what a happy day!!!


PS you'll be happy to know that Mini's "wall hanging" (2 posts ago) DOES say her name... well nearly!!! It doesn't say Goats Nose, thank you iCon for your wise interpretation!!! So if you get to it, and start learning Chinese... you might find out pre-referral what our daughters name will be (*hint Lisa*!)

My hubby is learning Chinese as we speak so when he gets a little better I'm going to show him your post!! Although, at this point he only knows a couple things so my chances are slim to none of finding out pre-referral! =)

Don't you know that it BUGS me when I don't know the secret???!!! I think you DO and I think you're enjoying it!!! =)
