Sewing stuff

Posted January 23rd, 2010 by candi

I haven’t posted for awhile – I’ve been trying to sort out the spare room. It has become a bit of a dumping ground for anything we don’t currently need, which means a bit of baby stuff, heaters/fans, books, geneology info, a large coffee table that is not practical with kids, a spare dining table, [...]

After yesterday’s depressing post, I thought I’d post an inspiring quote that I saw on a parenting forum that I visit. “Thinking that baby formula is as good as breast milk is believing that thirty years of technology is superior to three million years of nature’s evolution. It is an act of female power, and [...]

Lowering my blood pressure.

Posted October 14th, 2009 by candi

So I’ve been looking at other ways to lower my blood pressure, as well as the medication. I wouldn’t say it’s working that well at the moment, I’m still getting readings of 130-150/91-105. Tonight while A was supervising the children in the bath, I reminisced about my blood pressure during Willow’s pregnancy. It was a [...]

Happy Birthday Dexie!

Posted October 10th, 2009 by candi

Dear Dexie, Today you are two years old. It’s such a cliche, but the past year has gone so quickly. You really have turned into a little boy now. Everything your sister does, you want to do to – which means that I am always telling her to be a good role model for you! [...]

Someone keeps nagging me to update. I am trying to avoid doing something else, so now seems to be as good a time as any. Sooo… It’s been nearly 4 months since I updated, so some things have changed and some have stayed the same. Dexie Dexie is a stubborn little thing, he’s just a [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Thanking my guardian angel.

Posted January 8th, 2009 by candi

I decided on a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates as a safe but boring gift. While I was out today I picked up a nice bottle of Merlot and a pretty wine gift bag. I still wasn’t sure what kind of chocolates to get and being a warm day I didn’t want [...]
