Auntie Possum

No, I'm not starting an agony coloumn = although I'm up for it if the need arises.*

My sister in law had her baby today. Her name is ... okay, rethinking that, her name is now Sprogling and she is the baby sister to Sproglet who is now 20 months old.

It's these kind of moments when I find it particularly frustrating being so far from home. I havent seen Sproglet since before her 1st birthday, and now I'm not sure when I'm going to see Sprogling.

And being an aunt is cool - all the fun, without any of the misery, sleepless nights, nappies, and puke. Furthermore, when they become scary painful sulking teenagers, I'll be cool Aunt Possum who bitches about their folks with them, and is young and fun. See where I'm going with this?

anyway, i'll run along now. Just thought I'd share...



*i think I'd be great at that :)

Hi Kate, sorry you aren't feeling well hun! I totally relate to the headaches, have suffered from them my whole life and sometimes can't get through a day without taking a painkiller of sorts. This is going to sound like a silly question but do you grind your teeth in your sleep? Apparently that's a big reason for some headache sufferers. Maybe you should have that checked out? Hope you feel better soon! Luv Marika.xxx

Hey Marika
Thanks for your comment, love.
I'm not sure if I grind my teeth - but I'm open to all suggestions.
Anyway, Hope you're well.
Love Kate

Start stashing those "first cigarettes" and the Jack, Aunti Possum's coming out so you better get this party started!!

granny wrangler: :) That's the plan!
I always knew there'd be payback for being sooo much younger than my siblings - and it comes in the form of facilitating the corruption of their children - Mwahahahaha!
