It’s raining, it’s pouring…

I wish the boy was snoring. Monday nap time, and toddler boy has decided sleep is for the weak. We’ve had tantrum, potty stop, tantrum, extra lunch, tantrum, and now merrily chatting away to Pooh Bear. Knowing my luck, he’ll fall asleep just in time for baby boy to wake up. *sigh*. Last week, we made some bath fizzers. I’m a huge fan of “Lush”,

Not again…

The toddler is snotty. Again. He’s feeling a bit better today, and just when I thought baby might be safe this time, he’s woken up all clogged up this morning too. Sigh. Even when sick, Bear is quite an active little bloke, so in an effort to get him to lay quietly & try to recuperate (and not aggravate his cough), I stocked up on

Can I give up yet?

How far does one have to be into a book before deciding to give up? My current reading selection is quite hard going, and I’m not sure if I can be bothered finishing. Nothing against the book itself, it just has a very different writing style to what I’m used to, and since I mainly read when in bed, I don’t know if I have

Another Reader for the Challenge.

  Dear Mummy’s friends in the compooter, Books nice. I wants Thomas and Terrence and James and Bill-and-Ben and Snowy Special. Fity book, ummm, maybe not. Fity time? Love Bear.   It’s Wednesday. Wednesday seems to come around even quicker than Monday. But it’s nicer than Mondays. I don’t lament Wednesdays, Wednesdays mean only two days til the weekend, and daddy at home.   I

Another weekend over.

Monday, Monday, Monday, why do you like me so, that you feel the need to rush towards your weekly visits? The weekends always seem so fleeting. So many plans, so little time. But, being the weekend, Bear spent most of his time outside with daddy, so I got a chance to make some headway with my reading challenge whenever Chubba Bubba was feeding.   1.

Newness…

Friday. Generally, it feels like the finishing line of another week. A day of reflection on the week that was. And today is no different, I suppose. But as I sit here, munching on some choc-chip cookies, I am not only looking back at our week, thinking of the parts that rocked, repressing the memories of the bits that sucked, but I am also looking

New books

So, as mentioned yesterday, a trip to the library was in order to pad out my 50-50 reading list. Wwe were also suffering a mild dose of cabin fever, thanks to icky noses & rainy weather. A small break in the weather, and we took our chances on a dash to the library.   My haul consisted of a book recommended by Ruth (ok, now I check

More rain…

Hello Wednesday!   After a long absence, that wonderful sound is back. I can’t think of a sound (outside of my children’s voices) that I love more than that of rain hitting the roof. And it’s not just any rain, but beautiful, constant, soaking, make-the-grass-green-again rain. It’s been raing for four days now, and the river hasn’t even got a ‘fresh’ in it – that’s

Improving.

Good morning Tuesday!   The boys are starting to feel better, and we are all getting some decent sleep, thank goodness. Yesterdaywas nice and quiet, some stories, lots of cuddles, a new-found addiction to Baby Einstein:Baby Galileo (hey, who doesn’t love the moon?), and a nap on the loungeroom floor, using the lounge cushions as a bed! Not overly productive on my end, but hey,

Here we go again…

Morning, Monday (and no, it’s not good. My day started when the time had a 5 in front of it. Not. Happy. Jan.)   Ugh, what a weekend. Sick boys and rain. Not a good combination. The smallest one now has a bunged-up nose, which means he’s not feeding properly, which means I was up 17,000 times last night. Ugh. And the toddler is improving,
