How to cure post-natal blues: Retail therapy. Thankyou K-mart.
I bought some coffee mugs, $2 each
Face washers for baby's bath time, $2 pack of 4
Book stand $4
Oven roaster (not pictured) $14.75 = one happy mummy (Priceless)

They had mugs in other striped colours but I figured I should stick to one colour instead of mixing. There was a beautiful turquoise striped one but it was too summery for me right now.



This is the cute book stand. I struggle to read recipes properly so to have this is really handy.
I can just pop a recipe book on it and cook away.
Plus it was super cheap so I could not pass it up.


My adorable little man who was 3weeks yesterday.
Sheeesh how time flies. I would like to say he's a perfect little fellow but he does not like to be put down half the time but luckily I sewed up another sling to keep him snuggled next to me.



The sling is made from a single bed flat sheet cut in half lengthways.
Really, what do people do with bed sheets? I have quite a collection and I hardl…

Nothing but the Truth

12 days since he entered this world. Wow. It feels like much longer.
The first week is really the hardest. I am full of hormones, full of ups and downs.
I am Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. One moment sweet, the next moody and angry.
It's time to get out into the sunshine I think. I've been cooped up inside for too long.

Right now my son has carried in a chestfull of toilet paper.
His dad is going to be sooooo upset at him. It doesn't make me happier either.
The baby is on my lap snoozing after a good breastfeed. Thankfully I have this part under control. It's not as painful to feed anymore and he's putting on weight so yay for me and him.

We're having rice paper rolls for lunch. I can't wait cos it's yummy and mum gave me a jar of her chilli dipping sauce. It's the next best thing to slice bread.

Speaking of slice bread I am thinking of buying a bread maker.
Should I? We go through a loaf and a half a week on slice bread. If I made our own we could save money and I …

Our newest little member.

Baby Elijah arrived in the wee hours of the morning on the 8th June after a much anticipated labour. A day before his due date, mind you but a quick labour was very promising.

At 4.20am he was pushed out and I have enjoyed every second after that (not so much before, lol) No stitches for mummy even for this big 4.04kg baby! The heaviest of my now complete brood of babies. He is doing very well and I feel pretty good as well.
We are completely over the moon and getting on with... life.

Thanks for dropping by.

Yes, still waiting.

Today is our first day of Winter. I am still baking baby number 4. I will be 39 weeks tomorrow.
I was 39weeks when lil J was born (pictured above).
I feel pretty big but feeling like bub is quite low and getting kicks right in the middle up high.
I am hoping that there will be something happening tomorrow.
In the meantime there was lots of nesting: i.e. cleaning and washing.
We attended a wedding a few Sundays ago and gee it was lovely. The food was great and best of all we too all the kids with us. The only shoes I had which fit my feet were heels and I totally regret it. Anyway, it was fun being barefoot and pregnant at the reception.

I cut up a turtle neck top for Miss 4.5 but have procrastinated in finishing it. I want to double the fabric as the knit is rather light and not warm enough for our cold weather.
I've only got around to making some dresses for her naked Barbie dolls, lol.

So watch this space because I'm sure it will be rather eventful once our last baby makes his entry…
