Eight things...

Last week I got tagged by Sharon.

To do list (i.e. “the rules”):
1. Mention the person who tagged me.
2. Complete the list of 8’s.
3. Tag 8 bloggers & tell them I tagged them.

Eight things I am looking forward to:

1. Finishing Bianca's treatment in September - I can hardly wait, although it will be pretty scary too!
2. Getting a new job - if people can look past the leukemia we are dealing with
3. Tomorrow - it is a public holiday and Terence will be home with us
4. Bianca's very first school play in June
5. Bianca's birthday party on the 6th of June (although the cake is still giving me headaches)
6. Getting a lifestyle block / farm close to the city
7. Getting alpacas (and other animals) for the lifestyle block / farm
8. Finishing Bianca's birthday cake

Eight things I did yesterday:
1. Done some housecleaning
2. Met up with some great friends at the CCF Mom's day
3. Got a massage at the CCF Mom's day
4. Got a facial at the CCF Mom's day
5. Got frustrated with my phone that kept freezing on me
6. Tried bellydancing and haven't laughed so much in a long time (along with realising that pulling in your tummy and bum at the same time as trying to swing your hips are pretty tough).
7. Met up with my friend Christina
8. Got up several times in the night for Caitlyn (sigh!)

Eight things I wish I could do:
1. Find some time to start my hobbies again
2. Learn to paint
3. Go on a nice holiday somewhere
4. Get that lifestyle block with alpacas and other animals
5. Decorate cakes like the professionals do
6. Eat sushi - it always looks so nice when other people eat sushi, but I really can't stand the taste
7. Be a professional photographer - I've always like photography and wish I had the talent that some people out there have
8. Find a nice job soon

1. Shortland Street
2. Amazing Race

Oh I love reading these! soo nosy!

Wow a lifestyle block would be awesome! I bet the kids would love all the farm animals. I hope that dream becomes a reality for you guys.

I wish I had a public holiday tomorrow. Australias is next Monday.

Have a good day off!!

it's Jody, I noticed you did not put Canada in your places you want to visit, I am sure it was a mistake and that you meant to put it in the list, right?.... hehe jk
