Here's the Scoop: would you like one or two?...

Monday, June 05, 2006

My trip last week was great, even though it was work related. The worst part? Rude air travellers and a delayed flight due to my plane originating in Columbia. Need I say more?

I didn't take my camera with me but a colleague from China (it was an international meeting) assured me that he would e-mail me the photos he took. We shall see. I haven't taken a photo in days and days. Thus the lack of photos in my post. I'll be taking plenty in the coming days, though.

Mr. C has this week off, but we are only taking day trips. We'll take real holidays in August. I am working tomorrow, however. Just the one day this week. And who knows what next week, as the babysitter is away. Again. Travelling through Europe. Lucky woman.

The babe's first birthday is coming up this weekend and so I have preparations for that to do. And finding more time to read up on recipes and do a bit of baking and leisurely reading (if it can be squeezed in).

There has been so much rain that the garden looks like a tropical rainforest, and the insects think so too. They are huge and so many slugs that the ground looks like it is moving. Blech.

I am going to watch Canadian Idol now. Yes, lucky us, back-to-back idol shows...

And I am anticipating Andersoon Cooper's biography, coming out this week. What is it about that man?...

    canadian idol? really? is there a simon, randy and a paula?

    i read a review on his book- learned allot of his past personal life- more interesting than anthing else. i admire people who have had such hardships overcome them, and become happy endings as a result.

    he is quite fascinating...
    happy birthday to the babe!!!

    Hi Cathy, welcome back! Good to hear that the trip went well.

    So what are you baking for the little one? :-)

  1. Blogger missy said:

    Oh, you know, I thought of taking a year off and babysitting, it seems there's so much money in it! A girl I know gets £1 000 (nearly US$2 000) a month and she stays with the family and does not have to worry about food, etc. That's a lot of saved money!

    I don't know who Anderson Cooper is. But I hope you take the time to read his biography. I think everyone should take more time to read.

    Best wishes to the babe on his first year.

    Take care, Cathy.

    Hi Vani;
    We actually have four judges, and there is a Simon, but I like the Paula so much better (Sass Jordan...do you know her?)

    I have always liked Anderson Cooper; I like his style, and his life story is so fascinating.

    THe first of a thousand happy b'days! :)

    I want to bake him a fun first birthday cake..so I need to look through my cooking magazines and recipe books.

    Finding good childcare is so difficult. I've been extremely fortunate. The amount you mention would be quite normal for two children here. It is an enormous job, though...so think it through!

    I agree...I am always reading a book (usually very late at night these days)...I am currently reading Nick Hornby's book new book; I think you would like it.

    Cathy I didn't watch CI last season, maybe I'll try again this time.

    There's something about Anderson Cooper..I don't know what it is but i like it/him :)

    Have a great week with MR.C being home and preparing for Babe's 1st b.day..Cannot wait to see those pics!

    You travel so much. How do you balance it all? Work, family, home and self. You are such a great role model.

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    Glad your trip was enjoyable, outside of rude travelers, ugh!

    Yes, I've been missing your pictures, please find your camera again, lol!

    Day trips are the best!
