Oh happy day.

Today was one of those days where life was cruisy, things went right and everyone was happy. Maybe it the sudden burst of sunshine Melbourne was bathed in today that had us in a skipping mood, maybe it was because Mummy and Miss Mimi slept rather well last night. Whatever the reason, I am grateful … Continue reading

What a kid wants.

Our┬ákids don’t seem to care if we holiday in Noosa or the local back beach or if we drive an Audi or a beaten up old bomb. I’m pretty sure that our young kids don’t even care what we cook them for dinner as long as it has soy sauce on it (in my case). … Continue reading

Go on, just do it!

It was simply just meant to be, Miss Mimi playing bubbles today. She had asked me this morning if she could play bubbles but we seemed to have run out. Yes, I could have made some homemade bubble liquid fun but I was in work mode and she was due at kinder. I promised her … Continue reading

I’m Like a Child…Again

My mother is constantly telling me to leave Miss Mimi’s new books and toys alone “You get more excited than her. Share!” she says. It’s true. I love to gloss over the story quickly when she gets a new picture book and I like to check out how new games and toys work before I … Continue reading
