Ack. Internet died. Not good. But on the upside, my house is clean, I’ve read three books, done a couple of paintings, and am more than halfway through my d9p quilt! I’ll be back with photos and info when I’m a bit more up-to-date!

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”,
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
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
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

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
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
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
