Hi, let's have a little chat.
Come on, sit down. I won't bite - I promise.
Imagine me sitting here at my kitchen table. I've pulled up a chair, and I've got one foot tucked underneath me, and the other stretch-out on a newly-painted, yellow stool.
There's a bunch of two-day-old, yellow tulips sitting in a vase in the centre of the table, and we're sharing a hot drink.
You're looking a little awkward - you haven't been inside my house before, and we haven't chatted face-to-face either.
I'm talking too much to fill the silence (I do that a lot).
You've just noticed the rice on the floor that I haven't swept up from last night's Indian take away.
There's an ever-so-faint waft of urine lingering in the air. Sorry about that. J-Man wet the bed early this morning. Again.
As we listen to the distant, rhythmic tumble of the sports shoes drying in my clothes drier in my laundry below us we start to chat.
I tell you that I'm 28.
That I love peppermint tea, and am newly addicted to homemade Nespresso lattes.
I tell you about being a mama to my 5 and 3-year-olds, plus a step-mum to my 11-year-old, and the fact that my husband and I have a poor relationship with his ex.
I tell you that I used to be a Drug and Alcohol Counsellor and then a Primary School Teacher before giving it all up to become a mum and support our family business.
I whinge a bit about having broad feet and wishing I could afford regular mani and pedi treatments. Yeah. First world problem...
I share my dream of being able to escape our home town of Wollongong in August this year to celebrate my hubby's 40th birthday. Somewhere tropical, with lots of cocktails with colourful umbrellas in them sounds like a great destination.
|I suppose this many will do...|
So, what do you tell me over our kitchen table chat?
I'd love to get to know you better. I see you there, reading my posts quietly, without leaving a little comment.
But today (and always), I'd love to hear from you.
So, de-lurk. Pretty please?
Leave me a comment* and tell me about you!
How about you quickly tell me:
1. How old you are
2. Where in Australia/the World you call home
3. Your favourite drink that you like to share with a friend
4. Where you'd love to escape to this Winter

Four quick words is easy enough, isn't it?
Come on! I'll be your best friend - ha!
Have a great day anyway, and remember this one...
