Where does the time go?

Today we went to the park which was fabulous given the awesome weather we're having lately.  A couple of the mums from my mums group came along and the kids had a great time whilst we ate scones (that I'd whipped up before we walked to the park - I know, I know... just call …

sniffle, sniffle, aah-choo!

You can see where this post is going already can't you? Yep, after a week or so of dealing with two sick little girls, it would appear that the gift that keeps on giving has been passed over to me.  I had big plans for today and managed to get through the morning and a …

The packing of all the stuff

I love a weekend away, but I'm not at all a fan of the rigmorale associated with going.  Today we're off to celebrate the 50th birthday of one of my hubby's cousins so I'm in the process of pulling together ALL THE STUFF required of carting an infant and a toddler on an out-of-town trip. We're …
