Happy Birthday to me!

Posted May 31st, 2009 by candi

My birthday celebrations started off with high tea last weekend with friends. We went to the Boho Bar, a place I’d wanted to go for ages. I wasn’t disappointed. We had a great time in a unique venue – it is an intriguing place. The food was gorgeous and we shared a bottle of Moet [...]

Such a boy!

Posted May 26th, 2009 by candi

I am so glad the have the opportunity to raise a child of each gender – the concept of nature vs nurture has always fascinated me. I’d like to think that I do treat and will treat Willow and Dexter equally, if not equitably. I have been observing Dexter to see what difference there is [...]

snack bags tutorial

Posted May 23rd, 2009 by candi

I made those reusable snack bags this afternoon and thought I’d do a bit of a tutorial in case anyone else out there wanted to give them a go. I went to my favourite fabric shop on Magill Rd, Simply Fabrics. The woman there always remembers me and my children. I found this gorgeous cupcake [...]

What a weekend!

Posted May 19th, 2009 by candi

It was one of those weekends that you need a weekend to recover from. On Thursday night I started packing our bags… Friday afternoon was spent writing an essay at work (I officially finish at one pm but stayed to write until 4pm), then I went home, finished packing our bags and picked Dexter up. [...]

I’m in bed, with Willow cuddled up next to me, a cat on the other side and a dog at my feet. This morning I went to work until 1pm, then skipped my uni lecture to go and see my Nanna and Poppa at hospital. I still had to go to uni for the tutorial, [...]

Happy Mother’s Day!

Posted May 11th, 2009 by candi

After getting home rather late last night, the children did us the courtesy of sleeping until 9am. This was quite handy since A’s brother was picking him up at 9.30am to help set up for his mother’s 70th birthday/book launch. It was being held at the Old Scholar’s Hall at A’s school, so it was [...]

reusable snack bags

Posted May 10th, 2009 by candi

We seem to go through plastic snack bags by the boxful with 3 of us taking a packed lunch to work/school/FDC. I hate the waste that they create, so I’ve been looking at the option of reusuable snack bags – like these ones. Of course, the success of these things depends on a few things [...]

you tee eye v2.0

Posted May 8th, 2009 by candi

I am at home sick today. I have another UTI, which has been indicated by dizzy spells, fever and nausea. Also another symptom that I won’t go into here for reasons of privacy. I even went to the extent of organising for A to take Dexie to FDC. Part of the reason I haven’t called [...]

My day in links…

Posted May 7th, 2009 by candi

Today was a work training day, held at the Adelaide Bowling Club. I suppose it wasn’t so much about training, but it was a brainstorming session on funding outcomes. It was great as it helped our fledgling team solidify and clarify what we want our outcomes to be in the next 12-18 months. It was [...]
