Pyjamas and horsies

Posted October 31st, 2009 by candi

Last week I went to the Goodwill near work and found a gorgeous Jacquie E dress and a cute top with a Young Expressions (Kmart) label. I also found these gorgeous pyjamas for Willow. She loves them very much, but didn’t want to wear them to the birthday party today, she dressed as a pirate [...]

I want to remember this…

Sitting on the courtyard steps sharing iceblocks with the children. They ‘clink’ their iceblocks and say “Cheers!”.

Oh noes!

Posted October 30th, 2009 by candi

I love my iPod. I use it almost every day to listen to music and podcasts, in the car or using ear phones. It is a 30GB So, to say that I was frightened when I left it in my hot car and came back to what looked like a dead iPod, is an understatement. [...]

Ragdoll kitten!

Posted October 27th, 2009 by candi

A darling friend of mine got a ragdoll kitten the other day, so last night after dinner I took the children around to see her. On the way there, Willow asked how the baby kittens got out of the mummy cat’s tummy. Being an honest parent, I told her that they come out of the [...]

Willow had her first friend sleepover last night. N goes to the same Family Day Care as Dexie and so got to know Willow when she went there last year. Dexie adores her, N is his FDC big sister. Willow and N are gorgeous together, a cacophony of giggles, squeals and laughter. I was a [...]

Twice baked potato

Posted October 25th, 2009 by candi

Tonight I am making twice baked potato, using this recipe from Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. I used a lot less seasoning, didn’t add the butter and added a tin of corn kernels. While I was waiting for the potatoes to bake for the first time, I started on a recipe for chocolate truffles. I’d fried [...]

An Anthropologist on Mars

Posted October 24th, 2009 by candi

I am a bit behind the times, the next book I have on my pile of must reads is from 1995, according to Wikipedia. An Anthropologist on Mars is written by neurologist Oliver Sacks. I’ve been looking forward to reading it for awhile, but it’s not the kind of book that’s easy to read, so [...]

A conversation between my children.

Posted October 23rd, 2009 by candi

Willow – ‘Come on Dexie, I’m going to the toilet, wanna watch me?” Dexie – ‘Oooo’ I hear Willow giving him toilet paper to put in the toilet. This had better make toilet training easier!

Lateral thinking

Posted October 23rd, 2009 by candi

For those of you who don’t know, A has adult ADD. I don’t always find it easy to explain how this affects him, us or our family. I guess I can’t see the forest for the trees. There are some positives to his ADD, he is a very lateral thinker. Again, I find it hard [...]
