Mothers’ Day 2013

Today, I got great presents, lost 1.2kg (this week) and my kitchen table is spotless.

Best mothers’ day ever.


Edited out the mess so as not to ruin the mood.

Have a great mothers’ day everyone!  (Mothers especially.)  ❤



It’s a nice day today, crystal clear sunshine low on the horizon, moderate warmth, leaves of all colours in the mellow autumn breeze. So I decided to take the kids for a walk to the shop and back. It’s only two blocks away, I took the pram, the kids were each on a scooter.


Oh, and they talked. Constantly. At the same time. About EVERYTHING.

Now, I’m not entirely sure how it works, but I think they won.

Baby Sleep Dilemma

If she sleeps more now, I can get stuff done… but then she won’t sleep at night, and I lose the chance to sleep… what to do, what to do…


It’s largely irrelevant, because if I move at all, she wakes up anyway.

Best to just stand there in absolute silence, watching her breathe.  Because she’s so very cute.  It’s the easiest time to appreciate babies; when they’re asleep.  The rest of the time, it’s too hectic to notice.

Latest Addition

Had our third baby on 3.3.13.  Labour sucks, by the way, I had underestimated how much it sucked, and I am writing it down again, so that I will remember for the future.  However, it is TOTALLY worth it.  I am extremely pleased to announce the safe arrival of daughter no. 3.


Let’s call this expression my “pethidine face”.

I’ll be honest, I spent longer thinking about what colour to paint her on this blog, than I did on what to actually name her.  It’s a big decision with lifelong ramifications, see?  Already I have her best interests at heart.
