Back in the Game

One of my favourite go to blogs is Cakies by Ruby Ellen Bratcher. She inspired me with her homeschooling, talent and living life through the lesson of the Lord. Amen to that. She also has 4 beautiful children and a doting husband. She made me want to buy those Saltwater shoes her girls wear so much that I scoured the net and ordered some from Ten Tall Trees. However, our dollar was going down by that time so I lost a few bucks in the deal. Good news for you though that our dollar is above parity right now so you can grab yourself a great pair of shoes!!!

Fast forward two weeks (ish) later and they arrived! I got the girls to try them on and they are actually the perfect size. I was going to buy their size 6 and 10 respectively but decided to go a size up (thinking they're larger in size). My girls wear those UK sizes so I bought the 7 and 11.

Hair Square Hair Accessories

As a mother of young girls I am always in need of hair accessories.My 5yr old has long hair and my 2yr old has curly hair that requires taming. Lots of taming.
Otherwise there will be clunks of food dried up in their tresses if I fail to tie their hair back.
So last week I went to K-mart and went to buy a few clips for them.
She instantly picked out the Hair Square flower clips.



However, when I opened them at home, to my dismay, there was one missing blue flower clip.
I was very much disappointed as I like to get what I pay for and I count all my pennies.
So, what's a girl to but write a letter. I actually wrote a quick e-mail and presto, they responded pretty quickly. Of course they apologised and would replace the packet.

In the mail the next day I recieved my replacement box along with some other goodies to try.
How awesome is that?!! ! I was so happy. Now that's fantastic customer service.




Here is my 5yr old wearing the Hair Square Flower Clips and little bands.

Decorating... it's just not my thing

In my mind I had grand plans for decorating his Christening. However, let's just say not even a fraction came to fruition as I left things majorly last minute. At least the pom poms came together the night before. I also made a 3m bunting but should have made heaps more for our shelter.
 One of them now hangs in the kids room along with the light lanterns.
I wasn't able to decorate the night before because hubby wanted to wash down
the walls the morning of the party. THE MORNING for goodness sake.
And where was I come morning, well prepping my pretty self of course.
Along with curling the 5yr olds hair (which I've never done before).


I am glad to say that the Christening went well and the party was nice. I was run of my feet though and it was not as organised as I'd liked it to be. Still there is a lot to say of extremely helpful family members and those who are not so much. You know the kind. You have them your ranks too, yes?

Here's my happy bunch clean at church and th…

Planning and Milestones

This little cherub turned 4 months young today. He's a fussy little thing but I love kissing him to bits. Life has been really hectic since his arrival. There are days when I truly feel I cannot do a single thing and other days when a bit is done and the world is alright.
This 5 year old requested earrings so I obliged. I was more nervous than she was. I forked out the cash to have them both done at the same time. One skinny guy and one medium sized guy were at both sides of her. Both looked a bit scary as they had tattoo's down their arms and a collection of piercings in their ears. I suppose it is the sign of a true professional in his field, yes? I always tell myself not to judge others. I could have done them at the GP which would bring the cost down by half but I wanted it both ears done together as I was scared she'd freak out.
Just as they were getting ready she looked a bit worried and told me she didn't want them anymore. Too late for that. I told her it would be …
