Three Dates in One Day
Posted 11:39 PM on Sun-15-Feb-2015
Yesterday was Valentine's day and I decided that I would try to split myself in three a bit.  I got up early with the kids in the morning to give the first weekend sleep in to hubby.  As I was up nice and early, I made two lunchboxes up - with Valentine's snacks.  So I cut little heart shaped sandwiches out and then filled each box with my daughters' favourite things.  Miss A got lots of fruit jelly lollies, pretzels and a juice box.  Miss L got Freddo chocolates, popcorn and chocolate milk.Then just before 10, I loaded Miss A into the car and started my first date.  We went to the Hamilton Gardens and as they have a Arts Festival on at the moment Read More...

A day at Hamilton Lake
Posted 10:51 AM on Wed-21-Jan-2015
Since the new playground got built we seem to spend a lot of time at the hamilton lake, Which makes for awesome family time in the weekends.So I got a cute picnic basket for christmas from my sister and since then it has been put to good use with picnics here there and everywhere, Mostly at the lake.We have our little possie up on the hill where we can pretty much see all the playgrounds so when Mr 4 wants to venture off and explore on his own, he can.While we were there Mr 4 spotted his best friend at kindy whom he doesn't really get to hang out with outside of kindy so he was so excited, He called him over and off the both went and played for hours on everything, Mostly the cool water Read More...

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!
