Here is my list of totally random “tidbits” for the day…
** Today was a perfect Perth summers day….
** Temps got a little hot at one stage, getting to 34 degrees C. But with perfect blue skies and a light breeze, who could ask for better weather otherwise?! I love it when the sun shines!
** Perfect weather for (as the Australian’s say) “Icey poles”… (Ice blocks? Ice lollies?)
** Want to see the (main) reason for my lack of sleep recently?
** Please excuse the worlds worst photo – but that’s Abbie finally asleep in her new big bed. We moved her into it a few days after Christmas and it has taken her until the last couple of days to get the hang of it.
– So I wasn’t exactly going to muck about trying to get a photo after she FINALLY fell asleep after hours of screaming and getting out of bed.
** I have two words to describe the experience:
** That is enough said. If you ask me sleep deprivation is a slow form of torture!
** Which is making me all the more appreciative of the TV I got for Christmas for our bedroom, to go with the DVD player I got for my birthday. I’m not usually a TV watcher myself (which I’m sure you can guess by how much stuff I make) but at 5.30am when the kids wake up early and won’t go back to sleep, after a VERY unsettled night with Abbie, then this is my new best friend…
** Quiet movie time for the kids = roll over and go back to snooze time for Mumma!
** Speaking of being a Mumma… Yesterday I took friends of ours that had just had a new baby dinner, meaning that I could fill up my baby cuddle tank and get all clucky, much to my husband’s disgust….
** I should note that I’m not usually a clucky person and never have been. But now that we are done with growing our family, something has changed in me and all of a sudden I love to cuddle babies. What’s with that?!
** I think it’s making Neil pretty worried LOL!
** Want to see the state of my sewing room?… Still working my way through the endless scrap supply…
** But they look pretty cool once they’re cut – here is a little portion of the ones I’ve cut…
** K I hear fighting, that means it’s time to come in from playing outside and put the munchkins to bed…
