sicky sickerson

Maisie is sick with something that makes her be sick, so not quite sure what it is, from what I have read I would assume it the flu (maybe?). We have her on a mattress in our room, which makes it easy when she calls out “mommy” in the middle of the night – all […]

animal like

Tali is just starting to learn animal noises and actions, and is very keen to impress us. Just this week she has picked up monkey, fish and rabbit much to our delight. Its so funny to watch her watch Maisie and just take it all in and then show it off a little while later. […]

wow – its light at this hour??

This morning the girls woke each other up at about 6:20, which is the earliest either of them have been awake in a very long time. Its also the earliest that I have had to get up in a long time. Whats weird is that Cade gets up at 6 every morning, and has been […]

why?

I complain about not finding enough time over the weekend to relax and unwind from my crazy week, but as soon as I have some time to myself, I find myself walking around the house “looking” for things to do – I cant just sit and relax like I want to, because all of a […]

It’s been a year already…

But I still get a kick out of scaring the kangaroos away when I arrive for work.

i was wrong…

Baby #3 – Sonny as it has been named by Miss Moo – does not need any more clothes at this stage… Even though there are 14 weeks until Sonny is born, I decided that this afternoon would be the perfect opportunity to sort thru the 00000 & 0000 boxes of clothes with the helpful […]

Won a 10km race on the weekend

As previously mentioned, I entered the 10km version of the Wagga Wagga Trail Marathon on the weekend. Much to my surprise the field was very small (probably only 30 runners) and not very competitive. Subsequently I finished first, by at least 1 minute I reckon. Not sure of the actual time yet, but apparently I […]

sleepy mornings

Usually (this is most, not all) we Whitbourn girls get up around 7:00-8:00am. Now, there are occasions when its both of them up early or both of them up late, but more recently it is one or the other up so I can get away with staying in bed longer with one of them by […]

Blinky Bills

At almost 13 months, Talia is now getting to the age where she is actually becoming a little person. By that I mean, she is starting to respond to verbal instructions, such as ‘show me your blinking’… Maisie however, at 26 months, is at the stage where all she wants to do is copy everything […]

This time last year…

we were moving from Sydney to Wagga! It really doesnt feel like a year since we left the big smoke in search of a quiet country lifestyle that was closer to family, but I think that we have all found what we were looking for. A great workplace for Cade with flexible hours and the […]

just hurry up already

I fell over on the tiles at our front door after chasing my nephew thru the door whilst trying to kick him in the backside. I am happy to admit what a stupid thing it was to do – not only because I have a history of falling over when least expected, or that my […]

August 2008 Update

I had a fun friday last week with the Norman children coming over for the morning for a play. I took them all to playgroup with me – so I was a Mum to 5 kids under the age of 6 (with 4 of them 3 and under!) – so that was exciting! My girls […]

I just ran 9.4km in 42 minutes

That works out at basically 4:30min per km over a flat and easy course. For a training run, I am happy with that. It indicates to me that I have returned to a reasonable base fitness. From here, over the next few months, I need to start doing a few things: A tough weekly interval/fartlek […]

My 29th birthday…

…is now done and dusted and I am officially in the last 12 months of the last year of my youth. Here are some highlights of how I spent my birthday weekend (Saturday’s are easily the best day to have a birthday as it’s so easy to justify spreading the celebrations over the entire weekend). […]
