Soul food


Hello people. I'm still here. Still sane. Not much to show though I did try to make a camera cover and failed miserably. If you know of a good tute let me know.
Hubby bought me a new toy. It was on special so he decided I should have it.
When I saw how shiny and black it was I was in love. Now I can blog in bliss.
On the kiddies front I am doing well. We've reached the magical 6weeks and settling much better. Bub was colicky but is doing better since I've been watching what I've been eating. No acidic foods, less caffeine and stuff that gives you wind.


I took them all out yesterday to a community expo and it was heaps fun. It was easier than I thought. Craft tables do keep them busy. We had the good 'ol sausage and bread and I caught up with other mums who freak out when they meet all my kids. So nice to connect with others you know. Good for the soul.
The boy had fun running away from me in the school play field. Luckily I had Little Miss go fetch him which she delightfully did and called out "I got him" when she grabbed his hand. She'a gem for sure. I won a lucky door prize too which makes me feel special.

Oh, I may have hidden my giveaway in my last post. But you had to be a good reader to see my paragraph about it. I'll have none of that skimming blogs thankyou! Hee hee.
That being said.. thankyou to my TWO commenters: Melinda and Cherri! It's too sad to just pick one so you BOTH win. I'll see what I have in my stash for Cherri so please send me your addy's so I can post out goodies for you!

Life is soo busy but really good. Retail therapy helps! Hope you're ticking things off your Christmas list.

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
