Lola's picture

My dear friend Nikki bought this gorgeous gift for Lola 
so we have been thinking about where to put it in her room.

Anyone else nervous of hanging pictures above a cot? 
I have positioned the cot away from the shelf in case it fell and at the moment i put her feet to the other end to sleep. The canvas owl i pained is not at all heavy in case it fell down on her but i am always so cautious to put up glass and mirrors where they could fall on sleeping children!

No i have not been burgled. This is my house...

And despite a serious toy cull this seems to be how we live. Constantly dragging toys and 'play items' from one room to the next, then constantly tidying up toys. Toys in my bedroom, toys in the loo, heck toys in the pocket of my jeans! There's got to be a better way but i seem to have missed the OCD tidy gene. I know zillions of people have kids and not all of their houses look like this! I can name at least 5 people i could 'drop' in on and i know that at any given time their house would be beautifully clean and tidy. Damn it, I need that gene!

But in black and white at least the mess looks arty!

First full day at school

My big baby is growing up way too quickly.
She is loving it. 
Me on the other hand misses my little friend. For a four year old she's got pretty entertaining chat.
And some that makes my heart swell.

"When i die will you come with me?"
I wanted to say yes, of course i would.
"But everyone sees each other again in heaven anyway." I said.
Compared to death, the 'baby' questions were a walk in the park.

Random Home Snapshots

Cake in the post

This came for me today, in a box, in the post. 

Oh and these too...

Cherry Cake, Chocolate Cake and Lemon Shortbread biscuits from Meg Rivers Artisan Bakery.

What a wonderful gift from some great friends of ours in Hong Kong. Such a fabulous idea. Find some amazing little bakery/shop in the country you need to send something to and get it sent directly there. Saves postage and taxes and is the best surprise!

10 Weeks

10 weeks of being sisters. 10 weeks of loving. 10 weeks since she arrived, no longer an 'it', a bump, a thing about to happen. 10 magical weeks. Where has the time gone? 

And how do they know to love each other so much? It's not pretend or attention seeking. She actually loves her new sister, really loves her, wants to hold her, be with her, sing to her. That bond i hope they will have forever. The one that puts tears in my eyes and a joy in my heart. That is another miracle in itself.

Haven of Rock

An eclectic house for a rock lover. Comforting and Cool on equal levels. 
Love it all...minus the giant hay fork.
