So I guess I am the only person in Sydney who’d LOVE to see an oil rig drilling just off the coast. Come on, one or two off Palm Beach or Dee Why, what would it matter?
We could all go and fill up our cars at a refinery at Manly, if only someone would build one?
My pleading and cajoling, my beaten breast and pathetic looks have worked and hubby is hoping to work in Sydney again next year… sometime… may take a while. Whew! It’ll be a big life change for us all, but a good one. We need all the teen-wranglers we can get here at Casa Chaos.
Paul heads off to be our Intn’l Man of Mystery again on Monday evening. He’ll be back in mid-December and here for Christmas, unlike last year, so that’s great.
Meanwhile, I have engaged a young French mademoiselle to be our au pair.
Wish her luck, she’ll need it.
At least I’m not as anxious and overwhelmed as I was. It’s partly thanks to some serious splashing, I’ve gone out a couple of times to swim at Manly at 7am with the Bold + Beautiful.
I cannot recommend this highly enough. Plunging into the briny and ploughing through the waves is an instant mood lifter. Getting ashore in one piece makes you feel even better.
In a comment on her blog, the hilarious Mrs Woog said to me that she wouldn’t do it because of the ‘creatures of the deep.’
I thought she meant me there, for a moment.
There are creatures out there, I saw a shovel-nosed ray this week. But there are pink-hatted swimmers to the right and to the left, there’s safety in the shoal of swimmers.
The Ocean Swim training with Can Too starts this week too. Oh joy. If you’ve ever thought of trying to swim in the ocean, Can Too can train you, and would love to. Find out more about Can Too here. IT’s a fantastic program.
I wrote a post about swimming for my sanity, and why swimming is such a great sport for mums here.
Do you swim for your sanity?
Well, how are you maintaining it then??!!
