Pixels - Movie Review
Posted 10:59 PM on Mon-5-Oct-2015
Took Miss 8 to see Pixels today, in the afternoon.  We stopped and got a popcorn and some ice cream and took them in.  Prior to the movie my husband had looked it up on online and was kinda put off by some of the info as to how appropriate it would be for the kid.  I agreed that in this case Parental Guidance really did mean PG and it might be a bit much, but she was very keen and she is quite mature/sensible so we decided to go along and then discuss at length afterwards.Now, the issues we had were that some beloved characters do appear to die on screen.  In the context of the film this wasn't too bad.  They were enemies and the situation wasn't gory or dr Read More...

Cat Ear Activity - Story, Hamilton
Posted 11:48 AM on Mon-5-Oct-2015
Today is the first day of the school holidays for me.  I was working last week.  So I thought we would start with a fun mum date.  Our first stop was Hazel Hayes for a hot chocolate.  This was the first time Miss 8 had been in there, and she loved the home-made marshmallow squares a lot:Then we went next next door to Story.  If you haven't been into Story yet, you should.  It is a gorgeous shop right across the road to the Londoner, and smack inbetween Hazel Hayes and Hoaghies on Victoria Street.  They sell hand crafted gorgeous-ness from NZ and lots of local Hamilton people in particular.  Today they had a cat ear activity going for a gold coin d Read More...

All Tuckered Out
Posted 9:31 PM on Sat-3-Oct-2015
Today we woke up, me and the girls. We had cuddles in bed and then we went and had a classic school holidays breakfast - cake.  (we have so much cake right now....) Followed by a lovely playdate at a friends.  But when we got home I was sooo tired.  I took Miss 3 upstairs for a bit of a nap.  4 hours later, my husband woke me up and asked about dinner.  Whoops!I feel okay at the moment.  So I think that the last week just took too much out of me.  I wasn't sleeping great while the kids were away.  Some big changes happening around me in and out of the office.  Also Miss 3 got selected in the top 4 for this competition on Facebook.  It� Read More...

Mum Date 1 October 2015
Posted 2:38 PM on Thu-1-Oct-2015
Had a wee message this morning from the lovely Julie. Got me to thinking, it's been a while since I last entered anything in my blog. You see I'm the kind of person who grabs the bull by the horns and runs with things, and then I stop and kind of carry on to the next thing. You know like that song - I walk and walk and walk and walk and walk and then I stop. I walk and walk and walk and walk and walk and then I stop. I walk........ you get what I mean.I still pop on to Kidspot from time to time, but as a Mum of three, my "me" time is even less than before. There's always night time - right? No, I am far too busy eating choccy bickies, catching up on social media and Read More...

Make us a cake Mum!
Posted 5:39 PM on Wed-30-Sep-2015
With children who are due home tomorrow, I have one vital task to complete - make a welcome home cake.  This has become a family tradition at our place.  Whenever one or both are away, they ask for a cake and a "party" to return to.  This time around I got an email from my mum telling me all about the cake I am making - shows you how important the cake has become!So far I have one layer of the cake baked (just plain chocolate) and another in the oven.  I should be cleaning but instead I am watching Dan TDM making a cup of tea on Youtube.  Not because I really like watching him, but because I miss my kids ha ha.  The sound of his voice tricks me into th

The Great September Clean Up
Posted 10:12 PM on Tue-29-Sep-2015
With the girls out of town for a day or so, I have decided to spend the evenings tidying my house.  Because it is a pig sty.  I hope that by sharing these before photos I help someone else not feel so bad about the size of their washing pile:  - just the clean stuff! on my superking bed Or about their lounge! - this is just my path in the front door - more washing to fold Or the daughter's bedroom.  now to be fair to her, she has a tornado for a sister and she just pulls everything out and poor Miss 8 has to tidy up after her, because Miss 3 is hopeless.  So it's no wonder she gets sick of doing it!

First day of the hols
Posted 9:54 PM on Sat-26-Sep-2015
I woke up today on and off to a very excited Miss 8 who couldn't sleep.  Thankfully, daddy took one for the team and I had a lie in bed.  But then when he had to leave, it was all kids bundled into bed with me.  "Please can we go outside today mummy!" So I got dressed and opened up the door to let them into the back yard.  The sun was streaming in and it was utterly beautiful out there.  Even the grass felt deliciously springy under foot.Then they asked "can we have a picnic?" I went inside and packed them each a quick lunch in lunchboxes for something a bit special.  They sat together on our bench and had a little meal with the dragons: Read More...

Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe
Posted 7:38 AM on Fri-25-Sep-2015
I got to work yesterday and one of my workmate's asked me if any of my cookies were egg-free.  I said yes they are.  And she told a few of our egg-free eaters.  I had to laugh.  They were all egg-free because i didnt have any eggs.  The peanut butter cookies were very well received as well.  But my chocolate chip cookies were cleaned up in record time, so I thought I would share that recipe here too.  Ingredients 125 grams of butter 1/3 cup of white sugar 1/2 cup of brown sugar 1 and 1/2 cups of plain flour 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp Vanilla paste 3 TBSP Vege Oil A bag of Chocolate ChipsSo, I softened the butter and creamed the sug Read More...

Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookie
Posted 7:24 AM on Thu-24-Sep-2015
Work has a dress up day today, as well as a Spring Clean theme.  So we are spending a few hours cleaning desks, breaking down the cardboard supply, recycling and archiving documents.  Best of all we are breaking for a shared morning tea.  Many of the people on our floor are Vegan.  Another two are gluten-free due to Celiac disease.  Then we have one diabetic person as well.  So I try to make something that they can eat that is a "treat" otherwise they tend to end up having fruit or vege sticks and that's about it.  Last night I made some peanut butter cookies for our dietary requirement friends and this is the recipe. 1 cup peanut butter Read More...

Jump - Ellis Street, Hamilton
Posted 9:52 PM on Sun-20-Sep-2015
On Saturday we went to Jump! for the first time ever.  It was for a friend's daughter's birthday.  It has been there a while and despite numerous people telling me that my eldest would love it, I was hesitant.  I can safely say though, that she did indeed love it.  I'm now kicking myself that I held off.As we got into the car to leave for the party I hadn't even told my girls it was a party.  I just sad that we were going for a visit with some friends.  So Miss 8 had her bottom lip out a bit, because I told her there would be no Minecraft.  When we arrived, she was so confused, because we hadn't ever stopped there before.  Thou Read More...
