Mister Dexter

Posted October 13th, 2008 by admin

Dear Dexter, Happy First Birthday, my beautiful blue eyed boy. Two years ago, I had just parked my car at work and I had a thought, a premonition about having a son. At that stage we had no plans to have more children but you were determined to be here! You have brought such joy [...]

Cowboy and Goth Fairy

Posted October 7th, 2008 by admin

Willow had a friend’s birthday party to go to – the theme was Ariel/Under the Sea/dress up as anything you like. I had already made her a skirt from a waistband of A’s old jeans, some black tulle and lots of ribbon. I bought a sparkly black boa, pink fairy wings with spiders on them, [...]

cupcakes, cupckes!

Posted October 7th, 2008 by admin

Ok, I’m a bit over cupcakes now. I have been experimenting for Dexie’s birthday party recently, along with the usual baking that Willow and I do. Tonight I chopped the tops off the leftover cupcakes and made them into a faux bread and butter pudding. I made these the other day – they are supposed [...]

What an afternoon!

Posted October 4th, 2008 by admin

A friend from my old work invited me to a BBQ at her place today. A stayed behind to finish putting the mulch out that we got delivered ages ago, and I took the children.

Weekend breakfasts

We usually have something special for weekend breakfasts; from crumpets to pancakes, to big bacon and egg fry ups. This weekend it was going out for breakfast, but a couple of weekends ago I worked on Saturday and stopped in at the Mercato near us. The Mercato is a massive Italian gourmet deli, but it [...]

So, work, yes, work. I am currently working in a client facing position (so I don’t want to say exactly what it is) in the healthcare sector. It’s interesting and the hours are great+flexible, pay is pretty good too. On the other hand, it’s not something I see myself doing in the long term and [...]

My day from hell.

Posted October 3rd, 2008 by admin

I don’t think I have had such a crap day in ages. 1am, woke up with chest pains. I have had these chest pains before, back in May. They couldn’t work out what was wrong with me then, so I didn’t hold much faith in them working out what was wrong this time. I walked [...]
