Good way to spend the afternoon…

Posted March 31st, 2009 by candi

As it was my last day with my current work mates, and the last day for some of them too, we had lunch and drinks on the company tab at the Governor Hindmarsh. The Gov is a fantastic venue, A and I were there a couple of weekends ago to see the live comedy gig. [...]

The weekend so far…

Posted March 30th, 2009 by candi

I started this post yesterday but didn’t have time to finish it. I often seem to write about the weekend, on the weekend. Not that I don’t enjoy my job – quite the opposite. Actually I start a new job on Wednesday, which I’m very excited about. The office will be a bit closer to [...]

voiceless We got the latest LUSH catalogue in the mail the other day. Amongst the gorgeous soaps, lotions and potions, a flyer for voiceless was included. While we still eat meat, we only buy free-range eggs and chicken and meat where possible. I know it’s not much but it’s a step. If A was amenable, [...]

I am really not a routine type person. I am a Gemini, we are air signs, not grounded at all. Through work I have a weekly routine, and as a result of work, I seem to have developed a daily routine. In the mornings I wake up at about 6.30am thanks to A’s alarm. We [...]

5 years

Posted March 26th, 2009 by candi

I seem to go though phases with this blog. I might update 5 times in a week, then not at all for 3 weeks. Now this will be the third update, albeit short ones, in a night. Earlier this week, A and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. I’m quite proud of that. Since we are [...]

It’s in your genes!

Posted March 26th, 2009 by candi

It blows me away how much Dexie looks like me, poor bugger. Me at 12 months. Dexie at about the same age. Obviously I had a bit more hair, but so did Willow at that age.

Pavlov’s dogs

Posted March 26th, 2009 by candi

Years ago at uni, I learnt about Pavlov’s dogs, negative reinforcement, punishments and rewards, etc. My boys certainly illustrate those concepts well. Awhile ago I noticed that they associate the click of the laptop cover with me getting up and going to the kitchen. Of course, they associated the kitchen with food – intermittent reinforcement [...]

Hungover and sunburnt

Posted March 25th, 2009 by admin

Starting the week off with sunburn and a hangover (no matter how minor) is not a good plan. Of course, I didn’t plan on either. My weekend ended up being different to what I had planned. On Saturday I was going to catch up with an old friend and meet her 5 year old for [...]

When you start you with one idea…

Posted March 8th, 2009 by candi

A and I planned to spend the day looking for a new way to store clothes in our room. Since we no longer have a cot in our room, there is the space, plus storing clean washing on top of our respective dresser and tall boy isn’t terribly successful. I was looking for something I’d [...]
