The August Chronicles: What's on your fridge?


Edition 3 and I'm getting more and more into the Fridge Chronicles. Not enough to be 'styling' the fridge (although, I know me so well, it will come!) but enough to get excited when fridge time rolls around each month. Yes, that makes me a total loser, but I'm okay with that. This month I was thoughtful enough to remove the chocolate stains around the door handle that have featured in the past two editions.


LOML's 'mistress', Roger is finally getting married! The wedding is in October and already I'm having 'what will I wear' crisis moments. Needless to say, a wedding is a social calender highlight these days...

Maxi-Taxi is insisting that he joins Brightsparks, an actor /singer /dancer /waiter class on Fridays after school.  As much as I can't imagine my shy, retiring boy under the bright lights, I'm all for it.  The fact that the teacher looks like a 15 year old emo on the verge of a nervous breakdown is a little disconcerting, but Term 4 we're going for it.


My neighbour Susan is insisting that we go and see this play in September. She's in her 70s, Austrian and let me tell you, when Susan insists something will happen, it will happen. A review is forthcoming.



I've seen the '4P' parenting course advertised here and there. The counsellor at the school is conveniently running one in September and I'll be attending. Have you done one of these or any other parenting course? What did you think?


Terrible photo - sorry about that. But this little magnet has been on the fridge since Maxi-Taxi was about 3 months old. It says "It had seemed like such a good idea 12 months ago."



Imagine me leaping with joy when Maxi-Taxi informed me that he'd 'won' something at the sports carnival. Ah, another 'participation' certificate. Well done, my boy, well done.



This is LOML's list of his favourite 'mama made' Italiano meals. It's a work in progress.  A couple of weeks ago he suddenly started stressing that her recipes may one day be 'lost with her' and so began the list. Forget that she's only in her mid-sixties, fit as a fiddle and from a line of Italian peasant stock who believe dying in your mid-nineties is dying in your prime. This is too important to risk.  I insist on being present when he has 'the conversation' with her. 

So, what's on your fridge this month?

Join the linky as we chronicle the days of our lives like sands through the hourglass... Linky is open until the end of the month.

Marvellous idea, what a busy fridge you have. If I get time today I will have to join in and take a picture of my fridge.

Toni said...

As always, LOVE your fridge! If I ever come to your house, I can see me greeting the fridge like a long-time net acquaintance.
(relax, I'm not really coming to your house.)
I've been waiting for this (sad, eh?) so I'll get my fridge chronicled later this arve.

Who knows? It has been a couple of months since I joined in. Maybe I will get snapping later and surprise you? Maybe? Maybe not? An interesting read - might have to see this play with you. Susan's pick would have to be interesting if nothing else? Sad to hear the end of the 'bromance' is nigh. Roge will be too busy being a spouse to have time for LOML for awhile, and then there will be babies and sleepless night. * sigh* end of an era!

Ooh! Happy to have found your blog and be your newest follower - I have JUST cleared layers n layers of pictures, awards and reminders off my fridge - they do make for interesting reading!

ah this was the perfect link up for me to join in with today! Thanks for the inspiration!

My fridge is grossly cluttered and much of it is superhero or Rainbow Brite magnets. Doubt I'll be sharing.

However, the participation award made me smile. We have a few of those!

Glad to hear that a cluttered fidge is not as "bad" as I thought! ;-)

I live with an anal retentive. We don't have anything on the fridge at all. The top however is piled high with confiscated items...

I've done triple P and it was good - how come you get four P's????

Ruby-Robin said...

So great to check out your blog...thanks for leaving a comment on mine last week. I really liked your posting on the things on your fridge. It's fascinating how our fridges can tell so much about our lives. My fridge has nothing on it which is indicative of not having children I think lol. Hope you have a good week. Happy blogging...

I love this refrigerator post! I can't stick anything on mine, but I sure tape lots of stuff (art work) on the cabinets and the walls. I keep putting things up, but can't get myself to take any of Little Chick's fabulous artwork down. Have a great day!

What a great idea for a post, I should do this myself some day :)

michelle said...

i would have to do a major de-clutter before i could let any one see my fridge doors. i think there may be a magnetic calendar from the '70s buried under the rest of the detritus. i say go for the parenting course, i have done a few. just make sure you don't take any mummy guilt home with you and keep a very open mind

Tracey said...

A magnetic donkey complete with roller skates, (4 of them of course!) a hat, carrot and sunglasses.
love your banner!

Thanks for coming by my blog x

sara said...

Am going home to take pics now...love this idea!

Lauren said...

We don't put anything on our fridge -- part of my passion about preventing my house from looking like a kindergarten... But I love the look of yours!

gill@ourparklife said...

Finally linked up our fridge! yay!

loved your fridge analysis...

breaking down my fridge was kind of fun, if not a shock to see i am WAY overdue with my playgroup enrolment form...whoops

Chicken Willow said...

How funny, I was looking at my fridge yesterday and thought it would be fun to do a blog post about it and now i just came across this! Great idea.

I have to answer your question about the parenting course. I'll blog about it tonight for you for a laugh.
