3 year wedding anniversary today. Time is flying but at the same time it feels like that three years has been a lot longer. So blessed with my life and family.

Tomorrow is my super big exam. Technically I only need to get 13% on it to pass the year but I want to do well and am angry at myself for not studying more. The last few weeks have been hard - I got really sick and was coughing up blood so went to the doc and got diagnosed at beginnings of pneumonia. No wonder I felt like crap and had no energy. Am still not right but using that as a poor excuse for not having done more study. Wasting way too much time selling baby clothes on Facebook for a profit.

Wish me luck!!

Tomorrow is my semester halfway mark. To be honest, I feel better and more in control than I ever dared to hope, which is fantastic. Had a big test on Friday just gone, not sure when I get results, but will confirm I'm on the right track or hopelessly over-estimating my abilities.

Got an assignment back a week or so ago. Only worth 2%. Got 86%!!! Highest mark in class which I'm aware of (not to say someone else didn't get higher, just that I haven't heard so on the grapevine). Off to a good start, but need to maintain!

Evie is on solids now - farex & pumpkin - and LOVING it. My little piglet is devouring them, which is great. She sees the spoon and opens her mouth wide with her head tipped back, and then waves her arms in excitement when she is chewing. I give her a spoon to feed herself and she's pretty damn good at putting it in her mouth and getting the food off it!!!

Gotta go - need sleep, but love you all!! xxx

So my "post an entry screen" and my "log in" screen are all of a sudden displaying in ridiculously small font. My eye sight is great, but I'm struggling to read it! My friends view and "my journal" view is still displaying normal.

Not sure if I accidentally managed to change a setting? I haven't fooled with them at all...

My browser settings haven't changed, and none of the other pages I frequent have chagned, only these pages in LJ, which makes me think it's LJ. Anyone else noticed shrinking fonts?

If it is a setting, any suggestions on how to fix it, because it is REALLY annoying!

Just attempted to make Rice Krispy Treats for the super creative cake I'm making for my baby shower.

Apparently when you melt marshmallows they turn into bubblegum, and bubblegum sticks to EVERYTHING. Where was the warning on the recipe?!?!?!?

When I got home last night and peeked into the bathroom the rat was still alive though missing lots of fur and not really looking very happy. I decided to call him Arnie as he is like the terminator rat that refuses to go die or go away.

It took about ten minutes but I got him in a box and outside and haven't seen him since. The cat was punished by getting his least favourite dinner and no cuddles. I also threatened drew that if the cat brought anymore presents home I was going to permanently seal the cat flap.

Now this morning I get to clean the bathroom. Woe.

Have been finding over the last few weeks, that baby brain is becoming more pronounced. It was capped off this evening by Drew pulling the butter out of the fridge, to find that there was no butter in the wrapped but instead a pile of rubbish... Not sure why I put rubbish in the butter wrapped in the fridge! Two seconds later he pulls my cleaning agent out of the fridge too, looking at me going WTF?!

HAHAHA.

I have today alone at home (with my currently snoring dog). Aside from a few small chores like vacuuming, washing etc I have NOTHING to do! It is the most wonderfully decadent feeling ever!

I'm going to do my chores now (have been lying in bed reading until now!!), then my options include watching tv/movies, dismantling the study for nursery, painting my canvases, bathing the dog, planting my tulips ... What to do!! I could even just stay in bed and continue reading.....

Love holidays!

Last exam in 50minutes. Then holidays for 3 weeks! Yay! Hoping I've gone really well on my exams. Will find out July 11. Eek!

Shopping tomorrow with M-I-L. Yay! I am so lucky I have fantastic in-laws with whom I can spend time and enjoy seeing without my husband needing to be there. So very lucky!!

Seeing my parents in a fortnight which is great - I miss them heaps!

Just so excited to have a couple of weeks de-stressing and focusing on my family & friends instead of study study study!

Yay!

Subject: How Glorious
Security: Public
Today I have:

- No Uni
- No Work
- The house to myself
- NOTHING!

This means that I can lay in bed and wallow in the warmth of the blankets to my hearts content. It means that because it is raining outside I can drink hot chocolate and read books all day long. I can bask in my toasty warmth and be completely decadent.

How Glorious!

Also, what makes this day absolutely perfect is that I get to see my husband tonight, and my parents. What a wonderful day.

The only potential issue is I'm going to attempt a fantastic dinner, including a lemon & lime meringue pie. We shall see ;)
