a day in the life of June


So, action shots are the way to go right now. And the best bit is that it doesn't matter if the picture is blurry. Besides, it kind of sums up my life right now.

Fast, and blurry.

And today, between my toddler breaking some glass, a few of his books (again!), a lip gloss, and so much more, I had one of those conversations with my best friend today. It went something like this:

"Hey Kymmie, I'm just waiting for my husband in the Ikea carpark and thought I'd give you a quick call. Hey, you know those size 00 clothes you lent for A. Do you want them back? I mean, just in case you're... well, you know..."

"Are you kidding? Have you met my boys?"

"I'm hearing you. There's always one that breaks the camel's back. I put A in childcare today because he was driving me nuts."

"Hearing you. But at least my back breaker was baby number two. Your's was baby number five! Noah has broken so many things today..."

"It must be a boy thing. K doesn't ever seem to do those sorts of things."

(I go on to list all the things my toddler has destroyed in the past few hours when...)

"Oh, can you hear that? K is actually snoring in her car seat. Listen to this. It's sooo cute!"

"Aaaw. Cute. So, you're actually in the car...?"

"Yeah, I'm waiting for P in the Ikea carpark..."

"Oh, that's right. Anyway, I had put Noah in the cot for his afternoon sleep, when I popped out for a quick photograph for my daily June thing - which is far more work than I thought it would be - then Noah was already outside..."

"I can't believe you have enough outfits to post every day. I think I would run out after a week."

"You know, that's what I thought. I feel like every single article of clothing would have been seen by the blogging world by the end of this month. And I don't even have as many clothes as you."

"Yeah, but I don't wear them. Besides I share my my walk in wardrobe with P. So, it's not as big as you think."

"Surely, you would surprise yourself."

"But you seem to have something completely different on every day."

"Yeah, but it's my gym gear often."

"I think if I threw out all the clothes I didn't wear then it would be a reality check as to how few clothes I really have... hey, I've gotta go. P is here. I'll call you later."

"Okay. Chat later."

That was sort of how it went, wasn't it Janine?

How do your conversations go with your best of friends? Do you ever finish one conversation before heading head on into the next one? Are you too busy to stop and chat for longer than a few minutes?

Thanks for stopping by.
