Big decision.

Posted November 28th, 2007 by candi

I need to buy dog food and watermelon, both heavy things that I can’t get when I’ve got Dexter in the sling and it’s so bloody hot outside. So, do I pick Willow up from childcare, take both her and Dexter to the shops and put him in a trolley? Or do I wait for [...]

I can think of few things cuter than a three year old doing yoga. The class I went to today was run by a German lady, Tanja, who brought her three year old son along. He was quite well behaved for a three year old, although since his mother only spoke to him in German, [...]

Love that man!

Posted November 26th, 2007 by candi

The other day I said something to A about stopping breastfeeding. He thought I meant in the near future and commented that he didn’t expect me to stop for at least two years. I’m so glad we are on the same page when it comes to parenting.   We had a great day today – [...]

Election Day

Posted November 26th, 2007 by candi

We exercised our democratic right to vote today. It was non-eventful, we walked in from the back, so avoided all the people handing out those wasteful how to vote pamphlets. I thought of all the people who had died fighting for the right to vote and got a bit teary. I’m paraphrasing someone I can’t [...]

Photos from the trip

Posted November 24th, 2007 by candi

This is the Willows holding a joey. She was a bit overwhelmed, but when she had enough she said “Finished!” and ran off to play with my friend’s daughter. Willow in front of the Big Lobster. She kept calling it a monster! Willow on the Kingston Jetty, as you can see, it was a bit [...]

Our trip

Posted November 23rd, 2007 by candi

It’s almost a week since we got back, so I should write about our trip down to my home town. If I were more skilful with words then I could possibly articulate the way I feel about the town I grew up in. As it is, I have so many mixed feelings.   We set [...]

Strange grief.

Posted November 23rd, 2007 by candi

I had been trying to verbalise something to A for a little while, but I haven’t been able to gather it in my own head properly. I’m actually grieving for the loss of our three person family. It might sound silly, but I miss the intimacy of it just being the three of us. Last [...]

Dexter is really starting to coo and smile. Not just when he has wind either!

Aspire to Cylieness.

Posted November 20th, 2007 by candi

I have a lovely friend, Cylie who writes this blog – she is very clever!   So, when thinking about a little caddy to take things outside, another friend suggested a basket. Of course, I had to make things complicated and decided to line it. This is the result. I bought the fabric from [...]

I loves me some wireless innernetz!

Posted November 14th, 2007 by candi

I’m sitting outside again,and Dexter is next to me in a rocker. It’s so nice to not be trapped by four walls, nice to hear the neighbours, people walking past, birds, dogs barking, Dexter grunting and snorting in his sleep, and the traffic. Unfortunately when I bring my laptop outside it is a bit slower, [...]
