On Tuesday kindy rang to tell me I would have to come and get Lily because she had a few little blisters on her feet and one on her hand. They thought she might have hand, foot and mouth (not the cow version – the children’s version). They had sent another baby home that day whom they were positive had it. It wasn’t looking good! I jumped straight on...

We have progress. More progress. Not a huge amount, but progress all the same. I’m delighted.
(See the wood??? Progress!!)
I spoke to the builder today and he said they have earmarked tomorrow and Friday to do the foundations/footings so long as it doesn’t rain. According to him they will not dig trenches if there is a chance they will fill up...

Today has been a glorious day so far. Byron played brilliantly at soccer this morning. By that I mean he participated. He participated for the whole hour only popping off to get some water. He looked liked he had a great time out there. We thought last week would end much the same as it had the previous weeks. He refused to go on for the first half of soc...

I thought I would share a little bit of useless information...Lily, being the clever girl she is, can blow her nose. I could scarcely believe it when I put a tissue to her nose the other day and said “blow”. She did exactly that! She blew her nose like a very big girl. I still struggle with Byron when it comes to blowing his nose. He just doesn’t seem...

I've had another bout of the good ol' viral bug these last few days. I felt dreadful yesterday. I hobbled off to work for half the day because I had an urgent piece of work to get out, before coming home to bed, which is pretty much where I stayed until this morning. Thankfully it was ‘Grandma’ day yesterday so my not so well children didn’t have...

One of my most favourite things to do is soak it up in a nice warm bubble bath (even in the middle of summer). I just love them; I’ve always had a soft spot for the ol’ bath. It’s the one thing I’m looking forward to most in the new house – my big bath!
Anyway, I think Lily has taken after me. She just loves her bath but even more she loves the bubbl...

Rain - it’s officially the excuse for why my house hasn’t yet started.
I drove down on Saturday with Byron (It’s a little thing we do together) and could have burst into tears at the sight of my now overgrown lot. I really did expect to go there and see some excavation work, even though knowing the rain we have had of late would have impeded on any progr...

I wouldn’t ordinarily think this way given we need the rain BUT...
Go away and come again another day!
How are they ever going to start my new house with all this rain?
It’s been a good 3 weeks since my little meeting with the builder and still (as of Sunday) there was nothing to show but a grassy patch of dirt and some roof trusses that I can’t be...

I don’t think I mentioned as I was waiting for the results, but Lily had a further follow up ultrasound for her hydronephrosis a week ago. I was a little worried about my prospects of keeping a ‘want to be active’ baby lying still on the bed for 15 minutes while they performed the ultrasound.
Me and my wisdom decided a nice big bottle of milk would do th...

I'm still here with my diary...won't be moving just yet although I do have a blog too
I left it for as long as I could. I didn’t want to have to succumb to the mess that is a baby feeding themselves.
Honestly though, I don’t know why I left it that long. She has the knack. She is a natural. No mess. No throwing of food (which is somethi...
