Things I like or rather love.

It seems that time just flies past at the moment and wow before I know it weeks have gone by. Where has this year gone already? Having said that I wanted to share some things that I like and well ok I think we can even say I love.

Todd had his birthday last week and I won't share how old he is but he is older than me :) and actually I realised I was 1 year younger than I thought I was. How cool is that? to actually be younger than you really are, but oh how blonde of me to have gotten mixed up in the first place. The lovely T was booked in to babysit Liv and Soph and a grownup night was to be had in the city at Nick's at Kings St Wharf with amazing friends and then hopefully, fingers and toes crossed, that everyone would feel like dessert at the Lindt cafe afterwards at Cockle Bay. As T was here with the girls there was no need to rush home to let older people get to bed and no stressing as to how the girls were. We knew they would be fine as they were more than excited to see us leave and T stay with them. What a fun evening we had, beautiful, delicious food with wonderful friends and the back drop of Sydney Harbour. It was an evening that I loved. I actually loved getting dressed up and loved the food and the company.

Four days later it was Todd and my wedding anniversary. 14 years WOW! It has gone fast. We never do presents to each other but Todd broke the rules and gave me Champagne trufels - I love them, a Bruno Mars cd - I love that,  and some amazing Royal Doulton goblets that I have coveted for a really long time - I love them too. Most of all I love him. Thank you babe for loving me all these years x

After the weekend and catching up

It has been a weekend which quite frankly I would like to forget. I have felt ill since last Wednesday really if I am honest and without going into too much detail, this little bug that infected us wiped Todd and I out for the count. Sophie was fine by Saturday and Liv was totally cool the whole time. They were amazingly well behaved over the weekend whilst mummy and daddy laid on the sofas and had no energy. Such good girls, well most of the time.

Have you got Skype? I love Skype so much, if you have family away from you that you don't get to see too much you should seriously think about getting a webcam and loading it. I saw my 2 day old new nephew on Sunday evening. What a big boy at 8lb 15oz (Sophie still holds the fat record @ 9lb 1oz) and Jemma (my sister) looked tired but so happy. I absolutely love that even though I live literally on the other side of the world to my parents and siblings I can have conversations with them, and see them. My girls can see and talk to their grandparents and new cousins and aunts and uncles. It really does make distance seem less but oh how I long to give them all a hug and hold these delicious new additions to our extended family. Soon hopefully, soon.

Miss Sophie has gone to pre-school today of which she was totally ecstatic about for a make up day for the days missed last week so the house is quiet. Aah. Well, at the moment the Scissor Sisters are turned up loud and so I need to clean up and then I can get to sewing. Now that little baby boy has been named his wrap needs to be finished with his name and bound and the tag monster I am making him needs to be finished too. Don't worry I will share pictures when they are done.

It is a beautiful day in Sydney after some rain last night, hope you have a fantastic day.

New Beginnings

As new beginnings go there have been a few for me recently but this is certainly a new one.

I have been thinking for a while about starting a blog about my creating (or lack of it), my thoughts and feelings and me. I guess it is a type of journalling and a way of keeping a side of my little families history, and keeping track as we grow and face new experiences. I am hoping that it will be fun to look back and see how we did, how we faced these things and learned from them, but I think mostly this little blog will be about my attempts to bring out the creative side of me, develop my inner 'Martha' and the fun had along the way.

I hope you enjoy some of the fun had along the way too.
