Sigh. 7.30am rushes around in a heartbeat.  So, it is time for the 30 day shred. It is not what I feel like doing at all.  I feel like crawling under the covers until lunch time.  Today, this is not possible. So Mum, Helen and I shred under the expert supervision of Woody.  He is, of course, critical.  We are, of course, thick skinned.

Noah potters around and tries not to notice the three women in the lounge room exercising after too much wine and not enough sleep.  We must look a bit of a sight.  Helen cheats a bit by only exercising properly when she thinks Mum or I can see her.  Big mistake, Woody the supervisor sees everything!

Noah, Woody and I then get ready and head to Little Kickers.  As I get in the car Woody says to me, 'Mum you are a legendary'.  That boy knows how to make his Mummy’s day.

At football, Woody has mischief on his mind but he manages to stay out of trouble, just....  Despite this he does some excellent kicks and Noah and I remain his number 1 fans.

Back at home Mum and I rustle up some breakfast and then we all enjoy a breakfast feast.

We then spend the remainder of the morning chatting, munching, making badges and playing with Woody.

We say our farewells and Helen is on her way.  Woody later says how sad he is that Helen is gone.  He is already looking forward to their next game of Toy Story.

Noah and I have a quick brainstorm about Woody’s birthday party and write down every idea we can think of about food, decorations, party bags etc.  I quickly book some cinema tickets and then we are on our way to Robina.

The fellas go and see the Fox and the Hound and Mum and I pretty much have an hour of power and buy everything we need for Woody’s party.   It was just one of those shopping trips where we find everything we are looking for, the right colour, the right size, and the right price.  Winners.

Mum then wanders off to Myers and Noah, Woody and I buy a few bits for the party bags and then we go looking for a mother’s day present for the Mothership.  I cannot say what we find as the Mothership is probably sitting in bed reading this, but when Woody is looking for the present he says ‘I have my thinking eyes on’.  Hilarious

Woody has said quite a few funny things lately.  Mum had been reading to Woody about the theories of how dinosaurs became extinct.  One of the possibilities is that they were eaten by other mammals.  Elwood relays this story to me very seriously, and says that dinosaurs may have been eaten by camels!

We have also had a very confusing conversation with Woody about being grateful, in preparation for this birthday.  I try and explain that even if he receives a gift he does not really like he still has to be appreciative and say thank you and pretty much, not say anything rude.  I illustrate this point with an example where someone might get him something with a sheep on it, when he really like lions.  Elwood is confused ‘why would anyone get me anything with a sheep on it?’  I have sort of forgotten where I was heading with this, but Elwood cannot stop talking about how he does not want anything with sheep on it.  And why would anyone want to buy him something he does not like.   Like people digging a hole for themselves, Noah and I say ‘Well, you might get something that you do like, but you already have one.  You still have to be grateful etc. ‘   Woody is even more confused.  We are people who cannot learn from their mistakes.  So, we use an example; what if someone buys him a book he loves, but he already has it.  Woody is even more confused.  ‘Why would someone buy me a book I already have?’  We say that they might not know what books he has.  Woody is getting fed up with this conversation.  Exasperated he says, ‘Can you please telephone everyone who is coming to my party and get them to come over and I will show them all the books I have so nobody buys me one I already have.’  How I have made such a pig’s ear of this simple conversation is beyond me.  What I will say next time is; ‘Say thank you for every gift you receive and do not even think about opening any presents until everyone has gone home. ‘

Back at the shopping centre, we have a quick ice-cream, spend ages trying to find the car and then we head home.  Woody tries to doze off but that is the last thing we want.  So, the mothership talks and talks at Woody so he does not sleep.  It is hilarious.  It works.

They chat about Woody’s favourite conversation topic; ham night.  Mum asked what else we will be eating at ham night, other than ham.  No a good question for the pig product enthusiast.  He says 'nothing'.  Only ham on ham night, according to Woody.    Mums says she does not eat ham so she would have an egg.  Woody is not impressed and says it is not ‘ham and egg night’, it is only ham night.  She tells him she does not like ham and has not eaten ham in years.  He replies, ‘If you have not tried it in years how do you know you still don’t like it.  I think you should try it again’.  Oh dear, I hope ‘ham night’ does not get all tense!

When we get home Woody has a bath, dinner and is asleep.  Noah works and I catch up on the blog.  Noah then makes some granola for our Mother’s Day breakfast tomorrow.  I cannot even describe how fantastic is smells.  So delicious.  I cannot wait until breakfast tomorrow!

And that is us for today.  A very terrific day indeed.

Sleep tight. x
