New Orleans

Posted February 29th, 2008 by candi

I arrived in New Orleans by plane from San Francisco. I watched the swamps get closer as we descended to the ground. It was such a flat part of the country, with twining waterways. I’d been staying with friends and this was the first time I’d been on my own so to speak. Only me [...]

Less mundaneness?

Posted February 28th, 2008 by candi

Is mundaneness even a word?  Spellcheck seems to think so. I want to start writing more about ideas, things that have happened in my past, my dreams, etc.  I want to write about things that I surround myself with, the travelling I’ve done, what has made me into the person I am today. Stay tuned.

Round the country?!

Posted February 28th, 2008 by candi

I made Willow a slice of toast with butter and Vegemite this morning.  I let her have a go at the buttering, then neatened it up so that she wasn’t eating a glob of butter and a glob of Vegemite.  I asked her how she wanted it cut and she said she wanted it ’round [...]

I stuffed up.

Posted February 28th, 2008 by candi

Can I blame sleep deprivation? I had planned to go to the O day for my degree today. A was going to stay home and look after Willow and I would take Dexter. I got up, A got Dexter ready while I got ready. Got to the uni on time, found a park easily, then [...]

How much are you worth?

Posted February 28th, 2008 by candi

Every now and then, some lazy journalist gets out a calculator and tries to work out how much a mother who does not work outside the home, is worth. You know, she takes the kids to school, so she’s worth X amount as a chauffeur, she cleans the house, so she’s worth X amount as [...]

Jasmine tea

Posted February 27th, 2008 by candi

After working out that my usual morning drink of two double shots from our coffee machine was not having a great effect on Dexter, I’ve been trying drinks that are slightly less caffeinated.  He’s not too bad with my other love, Earl grey tea but I like to try new things, so I bought some [...]

Me at 4 months, Dexter at 4 months.

Posted February 26th, 2008 by candi

Do you think he is his mother’s son?  The hairy dude in the ubiquitous 1970s photo is my Dad.  We have that dining table still, it’s currently in use as a change table. Development – I was looking up some links to see when babies are expected to sit and found this link. Dexter can [...]

More mundane details!

Posted February 26th, 2008 by candi

I have been trying to walk more places to get fitter.  Pushing the pram is a great workout, especially if Willow is in it.  That’s 15kg of toddler plus 8kg of baby, plus the weight of the pram.  This morning I walked to her FDC which took 25 minutes, then onto the post office and [...]

Why I blog

Posted February 26th, 2008 by candi

Tagged by the lovely Jenn. Basically because I have a crap memory. I often hear criticism that some blogs just record the mundane everyday details of a person’s life. I think that my blog tends to do this to a certain extent, but I don’t think it is a bad thing. All of those little [...]

Every now and then I make some playdough for W. I like to put lavender oil in it to take the edge off that smell. It usually ends up being a big grey blob, but she has lots of fun with it!
