Anni-heres the link to my computer desk, its in our bedroom next to the bed. We moved it in here at xmas whilst DH mum was staying in our computer room and we never moved it back. the desk is so untidy, i cleared up a few things but still looks a mess.
To post footage just put the link here as you would a pic, i find you tube easier than photobucked when it comes to vids.

Girls I think I'm losin it!
Had a few drinks and have been trying to explain to DH that I am really stressed about getting Ella's birthday cake right. I have baked the cake and am icing and decorating it in the morning but will be glad when its all ok. For some reason I am feeling like the one thing that is my duty as a mother is to get the first birthday cake just right.
Am I crazy or am I crazy!!!

Hi lovely ladies,
I have just caught up on reading but have no hope with personals so I'll just do a few from memory and apologise to anyone I miss.
Britt Thanks for asking about my ear infection. The antibiotics kicked in fairly quickly so I am on the mend. I still have a couple of times a day I have to reach for the pain killers and I am over hearing my own voice echo through my head but getting there. Yes Max power vomitted after Jalna yoghurt both times I tried it. His reaction was pretty quick, probably within 5 minutes of him having it. Max also reacts to a tiny smear of butter, a trace of milk powder or cheese in a jar of food, even butter on our hands when we pick him up (DH picked him up after eating a toasted sandwich with butter on the outside the other day and he started coughing and getting a rash straight away). I'd try it again if I were you since he is OK with the baby yoghurt. Molly was always fine with the Jalna and still loves it now.
Rhiannon Oh you poor love. What a crappy day. I hope tomorrow is a better one for you.
Steph Can I ask what year model your Range Rover was? My DH has started looking at them online and I am nervous after your experience. Good that you were able to sell it for only $1000 less than you spent.
Beck I love the photos of Cooper. Just gorgeous!
Erin Your place looks really cute.
Dani You sound like you are running on empty. Make sure you rest whenever you can or you'll get sick! It will get easier though once you get back into the swing of studying. It took me a while to adjust when I went back to uni full time for a year. Fortunately I was single so that made things much easier for me! I'm thinking of you. If you get any behaviour assignments, give me a yell. That's my area
Anni I laughed out loud at those photos of Tayla with the spoon. Too cute!
Rach Don't you hate when DH's get in those moods and start the major clean out while huffing and puffing. I always want to run for the hills when that happens.
Renee Bummer about the infection. Hope it clears up quickly.
Kristi We have a bike seat for Max and another one for Molly. here is a picture of DH's bike with both of them on. Max was trying it out for the 1st time and they didn't go anywhere because he had no helmet yet (before anyone calls DOCS)
And here he is with his helmet this time
And one more with just Molly on the front seat when she was just 2.
DH built the bike especially for it. Isn't he clever! When the kids are young it is great to have them in the front so you can see them and they can see everything that is going on. Our kids both adore the bike.
Us My kids were both up really late tonight. Max had an unsettled day and wouldn't sleep until 4pm and didn't wake up until 6.30pm for dinner. Our neighbours popped over in the middle of our dinner which threw out the timimg of everything so I didn't get Molly to bed before DH left for work. Since I had to feed and bath Max later than usual I didn't get Molly into bed until after 9pm. I still have to clean up thhe kitchen and clean up all the toys that are strewn across the lounge room floor before I can crash. I was up and down to both kids all night last night so I need some sleep. Better got off here and stop procrastinating.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Just had to add quickly... I bought a freddo frog at our meet today from a lady who was fundraising. I had forgotten about it, then just remembered and literally kissed it as I took it out of the nappy bag.. lol. Maybe Kylie would understand my love of choccie.. hehe!!
Love Kristi (with a mouth full of Freddo) and Vienna
Posted 23 March 2007 - 09:34 PM
Lyn - that bike looks fantastic! I bet the kids love it, its a great idea. Your DH should market the idea!
Well Im getting there slowly and steadily with the essay. Not easy to write and I personally think its a huge amount of codswallop but its answering the question (I hope!) so I guess thats all i should worry about
Geez my legs are aching tonight. I think its this chair, I dont have a proper computer chair so have to use one of my dining chairs and its pretty uncomfortable, especially when I am sitting at the computer for hours at a time like tonight. I think I will have to go and buy a nice padded computer chair
Posted 23 March 2007 - 09:42 PM
Well, just got home from SIL's... up the road... Jack is still asleep, I actually managed to transfer him from lounge to car to our house without really waking him so I'm happy bout that LOL
I had to take my mum after lunch to have a procedure at the hospital, so didn't do too much today, fluffed around with her, then had a little sleep this arvo with Jack then off to pick her up again!
I got Jack's car seat refitted this morning too, so he's now facing us finally - he was sinking it the other way
Steph - woo hoo for selling your car so close to what you paid for it, that's almost unheard of... good on ya
Anni - good on you for all your exercise and good eating! Those spoon pics of Tayla are funny She has such blue eyes!
Kristie - hope Ella 's feeling alright tonight for you So many May bubbas have had ear infections and temps lately... Poor little munchkin Sleepy vibes
Erin - the frittata was so so simple .... it was diced sweet potato, carrot, pumpkin, red capsicum, asparagus, corn kernals (add or take away what you like/don't like) veges boiled first for about 10 mins, mix 8 eggs with half a cup of skim milk, add pepper to taste, pour into a deep ovendish, and layer like a potatoe bake, put on 180 for about 30 mins and done, test like a cake with a knife that comes out clean it's cooked! HTH's... really yummy, and Jack LOVES it too! Have a nice weekend with the 'inlaws'
Jules - I have felt really emotional about Jack turning 1 soon.. I know exactly how you feel... to me it's kinda the loss of this 'baby' and the start of being a toddler, not my little newborn bubba anymore I hope you have a great day for Ella's birthday party tomorrow!
Kristie - I was giving Jack neurofen and panadol in tandem when he had a viral infection back in December... it worked a treat...!
Leanne - poor Lauren - how frustrating for you at the doctors <_<
Britt - maybe implantation bleeding? I am only a buyer on Ebay, but I've paid for three items in the past that were not sent, and put disputes in and all - so frustrating <_<
Rach - I haven't put Jack on the shopping centre merry go round yet... I bet he'd do the same when it stopped too hehe.. cheeky monkeys
Lauren - How exciting a new house to build!
QOTD - Arrowroot biscuits - Jack has one maybe twice or three times a week, he scoffs his down too, really quickly hehe!
Jeannie - PMSL at how long tea took to cook hehe
Rhiannon - oooh that soaker is very pretty
Sarah - who is your team? I was going for St George tonight... they are my team hehe... DH's team is Manly through and through... lot's of rivalry in this household LOL
Anni - ouch on the dinner convo last night huh?! How cute Tayla's giving cuddles

JULES> Well if your crazy then so am I I am so paranoid that my cake will be sh*t. I'm not a good chef at the best of times and i feel like it's my motherly duty to whip up some awsome kick a*se cake for Tayla, and everyone has to love it. In my mind, what kind of motherly mum am I if I can't make a nice cake for Taylas first B-day? It's soooo crazy when I read that, but thats how I feel!
RENNE> Thanks for playing the game!
I just got a call from Chads phone. I answered all excited, but then realised his phone had accidently phoned me. I could hear muffled conversation so I eavesdropped for a while to suss out what he talked about when he was out on his own It was bloody boring! All I heared was him talking to his mate about south africa and the politics of the blacks and the whites over the years and then they start talking about the iraqe war and all the politics about that. SOOOOO not what I assumed guys talked about when their chicks weren't there PML!!
Posted 23 March 2007 - 09:55 PM
Jules I just wanted to wish you all the best for Ella's birthday party tomorrow. I can totally relate to you feeling all emotional. I am in denial that max is turning one soon. I just can't face the fact that my last baby is growing up. I'm sure the cake will be perfect. Make sure you take a picture to show us all how it turned out.
OK I have cleaned the kitchen and now I have to tackle the toys, express some milk and then hit the pillow hard. Nighty night!
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:01 PM
Ok, I'm playing too! Bear in mind that was the NEAT side of the desk.. lol

I see you Dani
Are you trying to study too?
Kristi - I peeked at your thing for Chels. It made me laugh
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:03 PM
Kristi-how weird, i saw those masks and before i scrolled down i thought ' i wonder if Kristi got those in Venice" and you did, thats the one thing i remember about Venice apart from the canals was all the masks they had there.
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:07 PM
But Rach, did you see your sig on my laptop?
Yep, I loved the masks in venice. such awesome window shopping. I had a great day there. Gelati.. pigeons.. water..
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:15 PM
Kristi-no i didnt see my sig on your laptop so i went back and looked and then i saw it.
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:16 PM
Anni - good I'm glad I'm not the only crazy one! What you wrote is exactly what I feel too! How weird to be like that over a cake!!!!!!
Lyn - thanks for your message. Promise I will post a cake picture - no matter how it turns out!
Was just talking to DH about our baby turning one etc and then at the end of the conversation he goes "just don't f**k up the cake!". Ha ha!
Kristi - love the promite sambo pic!!! Vienna is just gorgeous! Where'd you get the cheap ride on! What a bargain. I also remember when Erin got hers - gosh that seems like so long ago now!
Chels - great that you moved Jack without him waking up! He must have been out of it!! Ella ALWAYS wakes up now when I move her from the car to the cot.
Rhiannon - hope the essay is going well for you. What are you studying again - I forget? Are you doing your Dip Ed??
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:23 PM
Jules: I got it from target. It was marked down because it had 'Red seat instead of Orange' ... lol.
Have you got the nappy yet??
Rhiannon: I am just talking to Chels on MSN,, lol.. thought It'd be funny. Glad I made you laugh. I hope you got some study done today.
Rach: when were you in Venice? We were ther 18 months ago.
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:30 PM
Kristi-i was there back in July 2000, a long long time ago. I went on a contiki tour of Europe after i quit my job as a nanny in London.
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:30 PM
Kristi - no not yet - just bills in the mail today. But I'd forgotten about it - now I am excited about getting my Monday mail!!!!! Usually takes a while for parcels to get to me.
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:33 PM
KRISTI> Love the pics! Vienna looks so grown up, she's beautiful
Well I'm going to check on Tayla and tuck her in properly then get to bed, I'm soooo tired. Night everyone,
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:37 PM
TaDa, Yipee, Hooray! I have finished my essay!
I actually think its not bad too, assuming that I have actually interpreted the question correctly
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:41 PM
Rhiannon: congrats. that's awesome you're happy with it!
Anni: thanks.. I think she's beautiful too
Jules: I hope it lives up to your expectations!! The print is really gorgeous.
Rach: Europe was nice, but so expensive after south america! I did love Italy. we didn't eat much of the famous food, but got such fresh yummy bread, cheese, meat and sun dried tomatoes from the supermarket and made sangas every day.. yummo!
Lvoe Kristi and Vienna
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:43 PM
Now I have the WORST craving for sundried tomatoes! Oh well, I guess I will have to make a trip to the supermarket tomorrow
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:43 PM
Jules- I don't think it beats how long a cover took to get to one of my customers... ONE MONTH!! Canyou believe it!!?? That's just CRAZY!!! Don't fret about the cake. Ella's not going to remember if the cakes cocked up or not. It's the fact that you can say you made her first birthday cake that's nice.
Lyn- Ours was '96 model. Gorgeous to drive long distances and to 4WD in. But around town it was a B!TCH to drive. That's mainly why we got rid of it. They really are the best 4WD in the world though. Apparently the safest too. Anyway. I liked it, but not enough, IYKWIM?
Dani and Rhiannon- GOod luck with getting some study done guys. It's hard to stay motivated but you girls can do it! You pushed a watermelon out your fanny's, a bit of study is easy peasy compared to it! LOL!!! Nah. I remember how hard it is to study, let alone have kids to look after too. Draw up a timetable and slot in short bursts of study time. Sometimes you can get more done in short times than big blocks.
Anni- I know how you feel with your mates. We're the first of our friends up here to have kids so we're often forgotten. They're all starting to think about having kids though which is nice.
Me- WEll I had a TW party this afternoon. I was home by 7pm though so that was great. Well Miky was a right little turd when I got home. DH couldn't settle her, so we let her up but somethings not right with her. I'm hoping it's not something too drastic. I suppose I'll just have to keep an eye on her tomorrow.
Oh.. That's what I was going to say. At the TW party, the host had a pool right near her entertaining area. Well, it was fantastic. Her mates rocked up, kids were running everywhere, nibbles and drinks flowing. it was really fun! DH and I decided the other day we're going to get a pool. Just a smallish one. We figure our backyard is such a waste of space. If we get a pool and have the ability to heat it, there's no reason why we couldn't swim the whole year round coz it doesn't get that cold up here.
We're not sure how we'll do it money wise. But we'll figure something out. It was just so lovely to see how all the hosts friends came together and apparently they do that pretty much each week.
We love having mates around and would love to have people visit too. Plenty of ppl reckon they'd turn up too! LOL!! Anyway, if we did go down the pool track, I told Paul that we HAVE to have the heating tube thingys on the roof PLUS a cover so the water doesn't evaporate.
Hmm... I could dribble for AGES, but I think I might cruise on to bed. I'm tired. I'm sick of not being able to sleep as well... Sigh...
Posted 23 March 2007 - 10:46 PM
Rach - PMSL at DH - I had a mental pic in my head too that was pretty funny, him throwing things out the door hehe.... Jack loves Baby Einstein, I put em on when I'm cleaning up and he's mesmerised by it... I totally get you on the subliminal messages things, it's the ONLY time Jack does stay still
Anni - the glass of wine at the desk waiting for it's 'owner' to come back to is a classic.. hehe... batteries are dead so can't play Sitting on lounge on laptop though.. very exciting LOL - sounds like DH was having a really 'exciting' conversation with his mate... and here we thought they talked about 'other' things hehe
Lynn - how clever is DH! Great idea, Max looks so cute and tiny on the front of the bike
