Step 1: Greet patient at work.

Step 2: Notice her really groovy accent and tell her ‘You have a great accent’.

Step 3: Ask her what part of Scotland she is from.

Step 4: When she gasps in horror and tells you she is definately NOT from Scotland, put your other foot in your mouth and ask if she is in fact from Ireland instead.

Step 5: Wish a big black hole will come to swallow you up when she informs you that she is in fact not Scottish, not Irish, but English. From Liverpool.

So there you go. How to offend a Liverpudlian in 5 short steps.

You let a 5 year old loose with lipstick?

This! ^^

Persepolis.

Its one of those movies that you most definately just have to watch. Food for thought and something to make us think about how lucky we are to live in middle class (ok ok. Upper class for some of you) Australia. And I will never listen to ‘Eye of the Tiger’ without laughing again!

I think I may have just developed a girl crush on Marjane Satrapi.

So apparently my captions on the photos are not working so…. first pic was the girls being cheeky and dressing up. Second pick is Bridget being Bridget 😉 Third pick is of the long suffering cat being made to sit like a baby and hold Brenna’s doll while she babied him hehe. And the fourth picture was because some helpful little girl decided to unpack the toilet paper for me and that is how I walked in to find it one night!

I still cant get over that I have a 5 year old – it sounds so old! We were going to have her birthday party at a park with a jumping castle but the weather was awful so I braved it and had 15 kids (and as many adults) crammed into my little house for her party:
