My Beau is Vietnamese, his family religion is Buddhist, as such we have a few of these happy fellows that he inherited one way or another place around the house. This is my favourite. This little gold man is a new addition, his mate next to him is an old hand at this happy business.
So as some of you know if you have ever graced my pages before, we are home schoolers. As part of this I let Eldest unleash her creative tendencies on me often and freely. I thought I’d share this afternoon’s modelling clay session outcome. Evil people eating Sheep Evil people eating Sheep, egged on by Purple Pigcat & Lionmomma Close up of the Evil Sheep Lionmomma telling Evil Sheep to run away from the scene of the crime. Now, I’m not sure where Evil sheep came from, but at the end of the session he went back into a little flat sausage shape and there he will stay until Eldest … [Read more…]
I want to introduce to you Sid & Nancy… Sid is the black and white kitty in the photos, this leaves none other than Nancy with the ginger splashes in her fur. We’d been looking for a Kitten for a white, I had a clear idea of what kind of kitten. Eldest’s idea was ‘cute and a cat’. So pretty much the same. I mentioned to one of my pals that we had been looking for a few months and hadn’t found anything that felt right. I’m a believer in how you feel about something, no kitten thus far had pulled on my heart stings, not one seemed to fit … [Read more…]
As most moms know, it’s nice to have a hobby, for most of us it will be the blog itself. Blogging lends itself to a whole host of therapeutic uses, it can be a place to complain, a place to share and a often much needed dose of escapism, while dipping your toes into the lives of others. I do enjoy blogging, like most starter bloggers my audience is probably here by accident, but that’s the best bit, you have no idea who is reading about your life, looking at pictures of your family, judging your opinions and poor writing skills (like mine). If you take some time out, and … [Read more…]
Why is it that some people without children think that staying at home with kids is routine? Here are the things I do daily, 100%, everyday – the real routine stuff. Washing up Clothes wash Hoover Prepare food Now, I’m pretty sure that most people do this, those without those life sucking spawn too. My days are anything but routine, I never have the same conversation, I never clean the same shade of poop up, I never ever have a clue what Eldest is going to say. If you go out to work I’m pretty sure you do the same thing everyday, just with perhaps different clients & a different … [Read more…]
Okay, I haven’t posted in a while, it has been quite manic. In a previous post I mentioned us going away, Mojo’s first flight, she was in fact a dream. Mojo and eldest laughed as loud as possible during turbulence (the weather was terrible) and cheered up the other people on the flight. Many comments after the flight about how cute they were and so on, lovely!We went up as a surprise to celebrate my Nana’s 70th birthday, she nearly fell away with shock. Mission complete. As a gift to her I filled a photo album up of pictures of the girls, many many of them. In the front we put … [Read more…]
Yes potato bake isn’t hard to make, in fact there are now jars of sauce to make it even easier… But sometimes it’s nice to make your own hearty bake from scratch. Mines a little different. I don’t do exact measurements, no one sticks to them anyway, plus as a Momma I use what I have to hand, I’m busy! 3 Parsnips4 Carrots (optional)4 Sweet PotatoesCheese, gated, your favourite brandDried/fresh Parsley (or another herb you like as much.)Mixed veg, to serve on the side, again whatever you like and your kids will eat. Fill a pan with water, and put on the hob to boil. Pre-heat oven to around 180 … [Read more…]
So my Nana is going to be 70 this on the 28th of April, so, I decided to book a flight up with me and the girls to surprise her, take her for a meal and what not. Sounds lovely, she live 2 minutes from the beach, is surrounded by fields and playgrounds, all in all it’s a lovely place. But here is the thing, I’m taking both girls on a plane, by myself. No man help in sight. It’s Mojos first time on a plane but Eldest has been on many times. Taking a toddler, or a child 3+ seems so easy to me right now. The first time … [Read more…]
