I posted this
And you guys were all, c’mon Jen, don’t be a pussy…post the pics
And I was like, fuck you. No
Then my 8 year old daughter got home from school and was all, MUM!! What happened to your F-A-C-E?!?!?
Then she immediately went to work to rectify it
I guess she didn’t do too badly considering she’s never done it before. And only poked my eye 3 times with the mascara.
She was so proud of the do-over she did of her little sister’s original work of ‘art’ that she tried to get me to promise to leave it on until my next show
I was like, dude, it’s not until the 3rd of October!
She’s all, Mum, puh-lease??
Pretty good outcome considering how furiously the two of them scrubbed the first effort off
I reckon I lost at least 7 layers of skin
But it was worth it
To get rid of this
I had told the kids about a little boy named Cole
(read about him here)
Who is really sick, and is going to spend his 5th birthday (Monday) in the hospital
I asked if they wanted to help me pick out a birthday card
Because his Aunty had written about him – asking people from everywhere to send him a card
To help make his birthday extra special
They decided it would be WAY better if they made cards for him
They were right
I’m off to the post office to send them
Along with about as much love that one envelope can hold
UPDATE – Cole passed away January 16th. But not before receiving thousands of birthday wishes from all over the world. RIP Beautiful boy xx
I took a few photos before I left for the airport
(heading to Australia for the Melbourne shows with Dad)
I took the pics to show myself just how ridiculous it is
To be going on the shortest trip I’ve been on all year
With as much luggage as I had when the whole family went to Oz in July
But it’s Christmas!
I wanted to bring MORE
The photos were also to show the Qantas folks WHAT my luggage LOOKS like
Just in case they ‘happen’ to lose my shit
It didn’t take long to forget about the bags
And look at that puppy with the sad face
He doesn’t like it when the suitcases come out
He misses me when I go away
