Ten things I thought about today

1. There are worse things than sitting at a desk. What did Mark Twain say? Men will climb a mountain and call it recreation, yet sit at a desk and call it hard work. 

2. Is vegemite on toast an irresponsible lunch? 

3. I rather miss Christmas now. Sigh. Such a great day. Funny how you give a kid a great present and without fail they'll prefer the box. 

4. Curly hair runs in our family but not one of us have ever been nicknamed curly. 

5. I don't need any more skirts no matter how cheap that Dries Van Noten one is going on eBay. 

6. 394 emails. That can't be right. 

7. It's lunch time, right? 

8. Mark Twain was wrong. This is HARD. 

9. I wonder what Ellie and Kate are doing? I wish someone would invent an app that made it possible to call your pets.

10. It's Monday, isn't it? No, hang on ...oh, right. It is Monday. 

11. Must make a note to pack the camera tomorrow. 


  1. Who is that adorable curly baby?

    I think vegemite on toast is a great lunch, especially if you eat it from a heart-shaped pink plate.

    And now you's Tuesday already.

  2. Hey Curly, am I the only one who counts 11 thoughts in your "Ten things" post?

  3. Charlotte, he is one of my nephews and a good illustration of the Baxter clan hair.

    Shybiker, you're right! There are eleven thoughts. Which just goes to show how much Monday drained me.

  4. While I love the plate, vegemite on toast sounds like a punishment from God to me- ew! I'm too American... never liked the stuff. My friends there used to make fun of my PBJ for breakfast.

  5. L'doll - it is an acquired taste for sure! I'm not sure about these friends of yours mocking your breakfast - I personally find PBJ sangers to be one of life's great pleasures - especially if the j is raspberry and the pb is crunchy. Mmmm!
