When you are done
Posted 9:41 PM on Sat-14-Jun-2014
Last night DH and I had one of those real conversations.  One of the ones I have been avoiding.  It's the one that goes "I dont want anymore babies".  I must admit a few tears were shed. I'm not saying that I want a third.  When I think of going through labour again I still shudder.  I have relatively easy labours, but I tend to need a lot of medical intervention after delivering not much fun.  Add to that, I think 2 is plenty for me to handle in our day-to-day.  I'm okay that we only have two.But on the flipside, saying no more is like closing this chapter of my life completely.  And essentially it is really about me Read More...

My Mother's Day
Posted 9:29 PM on Tue-13-May-2014
My Mother's Day sounded like it was going to be rushed into a short part of Sunday while my husband busied himself with his own Birthday celebrations.  Before I went to bed, I jokingly said "see you at 12!" and received a grunt of 9am, because he had things to get for his get-together.  When I did eventually wake it was 10am and I did that panic - Oh crud, I'm meant to be looking after the kids.  I ran downstairs, only to have them all go - Hey! Get back to bed, Breakfast is almost ready.  They had made me my favourite, croissants with ham, cheese and tomato.  After breakfast, I had two children suddenly clambering onto my lap and squealing and ki Read More...

Happy Birthday dear husband
Posted 12:37 PM on Tue-13-May-2014
It was my husband's birthday yesterday and so he had the day off work.  I wrangled the children to school and daycare and tried to allow him a sleep in.  Then when it was hometime, I txted him and said I would pick up dinner.  Nandos - his favourite.  I bought him a couple of craft beers he had requested. Then we sat together after the kids were in bed, cuddling up to some TV.  It was nice, but so quiet.  I hope he had a good day.  I often think that as we get older birthdays become less and less exciting.

Home again, home again
Posted 9:54 PM on Tue-29-Apr-2014
A bit of a sad day today for me.  As much as the kids had been driving me crazy for the last 3 days, it was very sad to kiss my parents goodbye and head back to our life in the 'Tron.  I miss my parents a lot when we are apart, and while I keep myself too busy to notice their absence, it's hard to leave when I have had their company for the week.On the other hand, I drove all the way home and as far as Kerikeri one day, and then all the way back again.  All by myself.  Just a little bit proud of me.  And it makes me feel like I could do it again.  And again and again.  That in itself is worth a whole lot.  The confidence that I can go and see Read More...

Toddler date!
Posted 11:19 PM on Sat-5-Apr-2014
Today I took an opportunity that I don't often take. I left the big girl to play computer games with dad, while me and the toddler went on an adventure. Off in the car and to the museum, we walked the galleries and I talked art for a long time to someone who looked at me with love and great interest. After our art history lesson, we went to a cafe and shared a cake and a fluffy. It was great. She kept leaning in on me, rubbing her head against me. I realised she wanted a kiss, ha ha. I think it was a hit, I know I loved every second of it. It's been too long between our last one on one outing and today. Hopefully we will make it a more regular thing!

Green eyed monster
Posted 6:49 AM on Tue-1-Apr-2014
I keep seeing pregnancies and babies everywhere at the moment.  I don't think I actually *want* another baby.  But I kinda wish I could be pregnant one more time, feel baby kicking.  The breastfeeding journey is all but finished now, with A only requesting it weekly.  She is getting very little out of me, but then she doesn't need it and only asks for it, for comfort.  There's a girl at work she is having a boy, and I wonder what that would be like, to have a son.  I don't think that's a good enough reason to have a baby though - odds being what they are, I'm sure any baby number 3 would be a girl as well.  And honestly I love Read More...

I have not been the subject of that much gossip in my time.  I am too vanilla.  But there have been some great rumours and some quite crazy ones as well.When I was at High School, the rumour was that I was going to turn out gay or become a nun.  Sorry to disappoint When I was first starting out in my job, a rumour went around that I was pregnant to someone else in the office, who I hadn't been alone with nor spoken to  (I was also well engaged to DH at that point and 5 years into our relationship).  Recently since my husband started working in my office, a few rumours flied that he was my brother, and others that he was my lover (but not my husband).

Cabin Fever!
Posted 10:44 PM on Sun-16-Mar-2014
I have had serious cabin fever this weekend.  The weather being predicted as it was, meant that we stayed in doors all of yesterday.  Then today I could not convince L to go out until about 3pm.  All I wanted to do was go to a mall and people watch, maybe have an ice cream.  So we did manage a drive out to the mall.  We went to Wendy's and I had frozen yoghurt, A had a fundae and L had a choc bar ice cream on a stick (I had to stop on the way to get it because she didn't want a sundae).  We had a nice sit and take in the people, and once I narrowly escaped my toddler eating old gum from under the table - OMG YUCK!!!!! we went on our way.  We have Read More...

Wild Winds?
Posted 11:58 AM on Sat-15-Mar-2014
Here in the Tron, the winds are wild, the rain is coming in, and then it's not.  And then it is.  It can not quite make up it's mind, though I suspect that later it will decide for certain.  I decided this was going to be an inside weekend anyway.  So one is napping and the other is just finishing up on the Xbox before lunch.   have done a bit of housework and tidying mostly.  I will continue to do that some more after lunch.  What is everyone else up to?  Hope you are keeping safe out there!
