father and daughter

So, my wins of the week were:

  • Childcare has had cases of chicken pox, school sores and gastro within the space of a fortnight. On Friday we all woke up with sniffly noses. There’s kind of relief in that.
  • More exciting news on the business side of things. We’ve brought on board the fabulous MissMel, who is behind the inspiring Proud To Be Me events. The three-state events are very much all about that – women being proud of who they are. I could write an entire post – or even a series of posts – on that topic! Make sure to follow the event on Facebook and Twitter.
  • During our trip home from Stanley last weekend, Julian asked what the big bales covered in plastic in the paddocks were. Me: “Silage’’. Julian: “Umm, what’s silage?’’ I decided I could tell him the truth or I could have some fun. I decided to have some fun and so told him it was hay mixed with cow poo to fertilise gardens. His eyes started to boggle as he kept seeing more and more bales and wondering how many gardens that was going to cover. I then forgot to tell him the truth later that night – it was my intention, promise. So the next day he went to work and announced in morning news conference that he finally discovered what silage was. His explanation was followed by quite a few sniggers. Yes, I’m a horrible wife.

OK, time to start clicking to score yourself a win.

      How terrible am I, Renee! Someone in morning conference had to explain it to him. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall!

    Oh dear hope Julian never becomes a farmer our country will be in trouble. I think you should encourage him to stay with what he knows best “reporting” on events in the country not farming it. By the way how did he think you would spread one of those bales out by hand in a suburban garden.
