That Skirt!

“Mummy, you can choose what I wear today” says Miss H with a little twinkle in her eye and half a smile – as if she is doing me some sort of favour!  “Oh thanks” I say, “Are you sure??????”  (I lost the battle on what she wears a good few months ago now and […] Read more…

Embracing Christmas Aussie style!

I popped into the mall yesterday and was quite shocked to find a FULL Christmas display up in one of the department stores already – It’s not even October yet!!  I don’t know why I’m so surprised really, the Christmas hype seems to get earlier and earlier each year!  Anyway it must have worked as […] Read more…

My week in pictures! Love Instagram

I love my iphone!  I actually don’t know what I would do without it.  Mr D thinks it’s wasted on me as I don’t use it anywhere near to it’s full potential!  I do think I’m a little bit behind when it comes to technology, especially on the social media side.  I mean,  I’ve only JUST […] Read more…

21 days to break a habit

Miss H has sucked her thumb for as long as I can remember.  In fact, I’m pretty sure if you hold up her scan photo at a certain angle it would appear that she is sucking her thumb in my tummy too.  I can still remember my Granny Marge (my mum’s mummy), who was visiting […] Read more…
