And the winner is...
Thank you all so much for entering my give away and for all your wonderful worldly advice.
I totally agree that we (my husband and I) need to find time for each other and at the moment that doesn't seem to be happening so we will work on that and hopefully sometime soon we will! (And I think we need to wait till Abi is a touch older!)
Anyway, the winner is.... Emmie Gemmie from Desert Darling!
Her advice: Pick your battles.
This is so simple and so true, but ringing in my ears at the moment. Many/most of you know that I have inlaw issues and this has come up and raised it's ugly head again this week. So for me, I really need to "pick my battles" in everything relating to them and my little family...
But, just so I can vent for a sec...
If your husband had a very hard, tough, long hours job AND a new born baby... (Like mine) and his brother was currently not working, and had no real commitments (my brother in law) Who should the mother and father (my in laws) call in the middle of the night and at all differnt times during the day to do stuff for them and drive them to differnt places!
Grr... F me. I'm pissed. But to not sound like a whinging bitch, I'm keeping quiet, I have decided that this is not something I need to argue or bring up with my husband. I'm carefully "picking my battle"
I also thought that this candle being "little black dress" was perfect for Emmie, seeing as she has a 9 month old and lives in the desert... When will she too get time for her little black dress!
While reading through the comments there was a comment that really made me giggle! So there is a second runner up prize for Liss who has asked me to "please, please, please never become one of those parents who lets their child run free in Woolworths (Balmain, I'm talking about you) who always ends up almost under the wheels of my trolley."
Liss, did you know that I live in Balmain! Did you know that I know EXACTLY what you mean! And I do very much promise to never ever become one of those people!!!
Girls, please contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details so I can post you off your prizes!
