Callum's view of me in the kitchen.

Monday, November 8, 2010

Annabelle and I have been having lots of tea parties using the beautiful tea cups that Granny gave Annabelle. So much fun!

Sunday, November 7, 2010

Annabelle and Nathaniel had a great time pulling each other around in Nathaniel's new trailer.

Saturday, November 6, 2010

A coffee out with Jane and Cathy. A wonderful, relaxing treat.


Friday, November 5, 2010

I have been burning lots of candles, tea lights and essential oils. I love the calmness the gentle smells bring to the house.

Thursday, November 4, 2010

Annabelle and I have headcolds again so lots of tea and tissues.


Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Some of the yummies I bought at the health food store. 2 different herbal teas and some freshly made peanut butter.

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

I had never seen the exchange rate between the Australian and US dollars get so close to equal. Later that night they reached parity.

Monday, November 1, 2010

Lots of chocolate cakes for playgroup morning tea.


Sunday, October 31, 2010

Dale and his proud mummy.

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Callum and Annabelle having a cuddle while we enjoyed dinner with Garth and Rebecca.

Friday, October 29, 2010

Callum used his savings today to buy a Nerf gun. It goes against all my parenting beliefs (no weapons) and I already regret allowing him. Live and learn.

Thursday, October 28, 2010

In my seemingly constant quest to simplify my life I am currently reading this book. Slowly.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

It was party day at daycare so Annabelle came home with spray painted hair. It was an interesting look!

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Annabelle wrote the fruits we ate today on the fridge. Apple for her and me, banana for Callum.

Monday, October 25, 2010

A trip to the beach to meet up with Aunty Katy. Callum showed a lot of resilience when he had to watch his ball float out to sea.

Sunday, October 24, 2010

We visited Granny this afternoon. Annie declared that because there was cake that it was a birthday. So we added some candles and had a very happy un-birthday for everyone!

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Callum and Annabelle both sat and coloured in pictures.


Friday, October 22, 2010

A trip to shops which includes a 'big girls morning tea' equals one happy Annabelle!

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I headed to the chiropractor this afternoon to see if he could reduce the pain in my shoulder. He did - awesome!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

What was supposed to be a nice day out with Kim turned into me being driven home sick (literally). I went to bed with a migraine and Dale came home early to pick up the kids.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

A representation of my day - I went outside to find the egg shells that had been in a bowl on the table waiting to go on my garden were now all over the back deck.

Monday, October 18, 2010

Annabelle helped Aunty Jo to feed Timothy. She tried showing him how to hold his mouth but he wasn't interested!

Sunday, October 17, 2010

More baking - fruit loaf/scroll. Just as delicious as the hot cross buns.


Saturday, October 16, 2010

My latest baking adventure - hot cross buns. They were delicious!

Friday, October 15, 2010

I've been playing lots of Words with Friends on the iPod. For a Scrabble lover like me it's a dream come true to be playing several games all at once!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Annabelle and I were having lunch outside on the deck. She decided that Makka Pakka needed lunch too, so gave him some food.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

I didn't take a photo today, but if I did it would have been of the car battery. It died this morning and threw off the plans for the entire day.


Tuesday, October 12, 2010

After having a break from walking over the school holidays it's nice to back having our regular walk.

Monday, October 11, 2010

Annabelle brought Winnie the Pooh with us to pick up Callum. Annabelle asked me to strap him in 'to keep him safe'.

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Annabelle fell over on the concrete and grazed her knee. It must have hurt quite a bit for her to complain.

Saturday, October 9, 2010

The results of my Body Shop at Home party - me with makeup on.

Friday, October 8, 2010

A couple of pinwheels in the garden was a cheap way to add some fun and colour to the garden.


Thursday, October 7, 2010

Look out Nate, Annabelle has found a new man in her life - your brother Benjamin!

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

A belated birthday present from Cathy of some gorgeous soaps.

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Annabelle and Callum having their first sleep-over together in the loungeroom. It was a huge success!

Monday, October 4, 2010

Dale had the day off work (public holiday) so Annabelle and I took him out for big person's morning tea (normally named big girls morning tea but renamed today for Dale's benefit!) .


Sunday, October 3, 2010

Dale and I took Callum to see the play Tashi at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. He loved it. He even got to have his photo taken with Tashi.

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Lately I have been doing lots of Ebay auctions to get rid of our excess stuff as well as on behalf of friends (for commission).


Friday, October 1, 2010

My mess room. I'm not sure what happened but it's not making me a happy girl. Stay tuned for an updated photo once I get it cleared out and cleaned up.

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Callum and Annabelle enjoying a cuddle with their Granny.


Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Annabelle would have made a good big sister. She loves babies. She was very excited to have dinner with Timothy and his family and kept giving him big squeezy cuddles and declaring "He loves me!".

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Annabelle took the idea of dunking her milk arrowroot biscuit a little too far. This experiment in how soggy the biscuit would get was abandoned once the biscuit was deemed irrecoverable!

Monday, September 27, 2010

My 33rd birthday. Dale brought me home some gorgeous roses and a chocolate cake.

Sunday, September 26, 2010

At Callum's soccer presentation day Annabelle got her first ride on the 'chair ride'. She loved it and went several more times.

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Annabelle's relaxed style of eating - foot on the table and food going everywhere. (She was asked to remove her foot from the table after the photo was taken!).

Friday, September 24, 2010

In the school play Callum was again cast as the narrator. He was hidden from sight behind the lectern but his voice was loud and clear.


Thursday, September 23, 2010

An ice-cream cone for afternoon tea makes two children very happy indeed!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

After disappearing for four weeks to get serviced the sewing machine has finally returned!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

New Tupperware. Anything to do with organisation always makes me happy!

Monday, September 20, 2010

Annabelle has been sick for a few days with a headcold so we bought her 'special Dora tissues'.
