What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was 27. I was living in Auckland with my daughter (then 5) and My Home schooler 2. I was involved in a playgroup there. I was in the midst of arguing with the doctor that something was wrong with my son. It took another year for him to send me to the hearing clinic where we advised to start speech therapy. I was a solo mum for the 2nd time after having left my 1st abusive relationship a year ago.

Five things on my to-do list today:

1. make breakfast its 7am here at the mo

2.  home schooling my home schooler Im so pleased to have my computer back it makes home schooling easier I have lesson plans on it

3.  do some blogging
4.  run the tea towels  though the drier its been raining here and we have run out of tea towels they were on the line when it rained

5. have another coffee to kick start my day

Snacks that I enjoy:

Chocolate chip cookies (especially the ones I had yesterday at playgroup one of the fathers had made them and they were YUMMMMY!!!)

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

1. Give portions to church and people I knew with various needs.
2. Pay off our debts.
3. Buy some home schooling resources that I want
4. Buy a house with 5 bedrooms
5. Go on a holiday somewhere warm

Three of my bad habits:

1. scratching

Work Work Work – we all do it – so whats your story???

Filed under: memes — by my3boysandi @ 7:12 am

Tina posted an interesting post which Im turning into a meme cause Im nosy interested in what everyone else did/do. I also think this another good way of learning more about each other.

this is my story please share yours here or on your own blog and let me know

I had several part time jobs while at school
woolworths too I was a packer
a paper run
at a plant nursery

I left school for rather silly reasons I had a crush on the truck driver at the plant nursery so I left school (hated it anyway and had got school cert) worked there for several years full time
although I probably made a mistake going to work there I did meet my first real friend there 🙂 (she was later murdered but thats another story)

then I went and did an office training course

worked in a import company – LONG hours

a vet wholesellers company ended up packing the orders as my typing was too slow

was made redundant as I was preggy and sick as a dog however within weeks of leaving I was over the first 3 months and ok again
rather unfair know I think of it

then I became a mommy
yep its wonderful 🙂

When My Trier was a baby his father forced me to go out to work cleaning houses – hated it – wanted to be with my babes – and I later found out he was verbally abusive to my daughter when I wasnt there

Eventually left him

homeschooled my daughter for 2.5 years

went to uni and got my bachelor in early childhood education

got preggy with My Little Man so am a fulltime SAHM again and loving it but feeling the pressure to go and get registered which takes 2 years and should really be done by 2010

so Im tagging
