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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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!
