Happy Birthday Willow!

Posted January 22nd, 2009 by candi

I can’t believe my little girl is 4 years old. This is my post from this time last year: A is putting together Willow’s new bike while we reminisce. This time three years ago I was in the early stages of labour. I’d woken up at 5:30am with contractions, but they were irregular to say [...]

The rest of the weekend!

Posted January 18th, 2009 by candi

Apart from the date night, the rest of the weekend was quite relaxing. On Saturday morning I had my Pilates class, then the washing machine man came to fix our washing machine. $220 to fix a machine that had ony cost us $100 second hand is not too bad I guess. We then went into [...]

Date night!

Posted January 18th, 2009 by candi

A and I don’t have the opportunity to go out very often. In fact, the last time we’d spent any time together alone was doing Christmas shopping during a lunch break. The time before that, I can’t even remember. We’d been thinking about what to do – dinner and a movie were on the cards. [...]

My baby!

Posted January 16th, 2009 by candi

A bought home a little school bag for my baby. I can’t believe she is old enough to be going to school (ELC) this year! The bag contained 2 shorts, 3 jumpers, one splash jacket and 2 polo shirts. She looked so freaking cute in them. A woman at his work has given them to [...]

The good, the bad and the ugly.

Posted January 16th, 2009 by candi

Good: Going to see my amazing physio, walking out and feeling so much lighter. Bad: Getting in a car with a client who has a coughing fit, then tells us he has whooping cough. Ugly: The piles and piles of washing waiting for the machine to be fixed.

Man of my dreams.

Posted January 15th, 2009 by candi

Neither of us felt like cooking tonight, the washing machine is broken and I had a long drive home, so A rang up and ordered Thai food which I picked up on the way through. How’s that for team work?

Sand, sand, everywhere!

Posted January 15th, 2009 by candi

I finally bought some sand for the sandpit. Willow and Dexter loved it! Of course, he ate some, even though he made faces after each mouthful. He also delighted in throwing handful after handful out of the pit and stabbing his sister in the foot with an old fork.

Achtung! Warning!

Posted January 14th, 2009 by candi

This entry is a review of the Diva Cup, a menstrual device. If you have a weak stomach then perhaps you’d best not click on.

More good things about work.

Posted January 14th, 2009 by candi

Business cards. Being given a list of training and told to choose what I like. All done in work time of course. Flexibility. Being ‘on the same page’ as my manager.
