Another Nursing Top

Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful mummies out there!

My morning started with a kiss from hubby before he left for work.
Not long after the kids woke up and we had breakfast. I got them ready for church.
As I finished dressing I went into the kitchen to find my eldest (4.5yr old girl) apologising for spilling the beetroot container! She had stained her white fancy dress and some of the floor with beetroot juice. I had left the container on the bench but I did recall having a lid on it.
She apologised, saying she was trying to help me clean. God Bless her.
I rinsed her dress and popped it into the dryer so she could still wear it out.

She gave me the present (a little pink led torch) from her preschool stall along with some other items made at school. I had tears in my eyes. It was my first official present made by her and I was full of emotion. We hung them up on the wall in fron tof my sewing table.

Church was good and I didn't even worry when my youngest girl popped the lid off her sipper cup and spilled cold water down her top and half of the bottom of my jeans. Luckily my nephew found the spare clothes I had in the nappy bag and we were ok for the rest of church.
After a nice Sunday lunch with the in-laws and some pregnancy talks with my sis in law it's time to just rest at home before another dinner outing at my mums. I just hope it's not as eventful as this morning but with kids you can never tell what's going to happen.

I am just so thankful to be a mother and even though days can be hard I cherish the moments where I think "wow, these are my kids and I gave birth to them: Me, three times I gave birth!!!" I am proud in my own eyes and having that extra bit of praise from friends or family can really brighten up my outlook on life. So please, don't be shy and give another mother some hugs, kisses and kind words for a job that IS hard as it looks!!!!!!! XOX


p.s I also made another one of these nursing tops in my spare (ahem) time i.e while the kids and hubby were all asleep!



The material is a kind of spandex with, I think, polyester? I had originally planned it to be a wrap dress hence why I had about 2 metres of it. I used the same process as the other nursing top using New Look 6697. For the pieces covering my belly I just placed an existing maternity top on top of the material and cut out a bigger rectangle. It's actually tighter around my belly while the other top was loose so I won't be comfy in this until I give birth or lose some belly.


I entered my Pomegranate top in Made by Rae's Spring Top Sew-a-long Contest so please vote for me if you make it there!


Here's to a wonderful Mothers Day.

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…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …

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…
