Those of you who are around here from time to time will have noticed an excessive number book review posts lately due to my recent rediscovery of my love for reading. I know they’re boring unless they are about a book you are particularly interested in, but I am so proud of myself that I’m actually pulling it off…the reading challenge that is.
So apart from a lot of reading, this week has been frantically busy and I’ve hardly even had time to read blogs let alone write this one. We’ve had a house guest. She is house trained, so was no trouble really. It did mean however that R11months had to move into our room and lets just say that sleep was not high in his priorities….milking the situation to his maximum advantage was. Last night foe example he woke at 2am and fussed and cried and got cross with me for a very long time. D got fed up and went to the couch. In his defense (the baby’s that is) he has had a cold and has a fluidy ear, but after giving pamol (paracetamol) ‘just in case’ my sympathy ran out around 3:17am. I’m not sure what time he eventually settled, but Grrrrrr…….
So tonight I’m celebrating that we have our room back to ourselves. (I know, all you co-sleepers out there will feel sad for our kiddies, but I just can’t co sleep)
I’m also celebratory that I have bought a few bits and bobs for the Ugly Toilet project so you should see some beautiful ‘after’ photos soon!
Ooooh, and today my kids got their first swimming lesson ribbons. They only started 5 weeks ago and a s an encouragement to all the kids they got a ribbon today. Both E5 and B3 received the Dog Paddle ribbon! So cute, and I’m so proud of how they are going. Both have grown in confidence incredibly after just a few lessons and more regular swims…E5 loves to put her head under and swim along under water….today she was so excited because “Mummy! I screamed underwater!!!“.
AND, Mother Me emailed me to day to tell me that my gift for the Pay it Forward thingy is on it’s way! (I still have three outstanding gifts to make and send, but I think I know what they are going to be.)
And what a better way to celebrate than to participate in my first ever Ultimate Blog Party!
