This has to be my favourite Project Black photo so far! I took it at the party Kiara went to yesterday!
I nearly had to physically assault the kids though to NOT touch them till I got the shot.

This is a TOTAL whinge post!
I am STILL sick! Its now been 3 weeks and 10 consecutive days of antibiotics – which has NEVER happened to me before! EVER. While I do obviously feel slightly better I am nowhere near 100%
And do you think anyone one of the four other people in the house actually care? My mom is petrified that I may end up in hospital, not cos it will mean I am THAT sick, but cos that will mean she has to watch the kids and if your read my bum radar post you will that isnt that much fun. My dad never says much about anything and so obviously probably doesnt even know I am sick. Cameron is having a competition with me – if I cough, he coughs so much that he nearly throws up – if I have a headache he has a migraine that makes him want to throw up – if my chest hurts his tummy is so sore he wants to throw up. Do you get the picture?? Kiara goes “Oh” when I try enlicit sympathy from her and then “mom I need you to dress the baby, colour with me, make me coffee and find my golden skirt” then she takes a breathe and spews out the next list of things to do for me.
I dont even have a husband/boyfriend to guilt into watching the kids for me for a quick nap – so I quickly updated my profiles on ALL my internet dating sites – seriously a man does have a few uses now and then and this is one of them!
Oh and the cherry on the top is that I have PMS! So I had my very own little pity party this morning complete with the obligatory tear shedding and have VOWED to go and buy a Lindt chocolate as soon as the shops open and eat it in front of the 4 of them (we are a family of chocoholics so this WILL be sweet revenge)
I met Ansie and her 3 boys at the botanical gardens today! Before they arrived though the kids and I went for a walk – we ended up getting lost so it was a slightly longer walk than planned but it was nice!
Its such a pretty tranquil place. And it was nice to catch up with Ansie over a bottle of champagne (yes Shuia I had WINE)
Here are some pics at the waterfall
Kiara had a party today – one her best buds – Leane. It was at a really stunning venue – was well worth the LONG drive!
Leane gave new meaning to having a birthday though! She is afraid of the birthday cake, song and candles and screamed from the second her mom touched the cake to the second we finished singing! And then she didnt want to open her presents and eventually just handed them out to all the kids!

I am finding it a huge challenge to be a mom to a 6 year old boy! We seem to spend a large part of our day at odds with each other! But when I got this pic it reminded me what a sweet sweet child he is!
So tomorrow we are going out – just the 2 of us!
Anna has more project black pics on her blog!
