My Mother's Day weekend.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. Lucky me had breakfast sent to me in bed but I decided it best if we all ate at the table. My preschooler picked out the best gift ever. This cute little notebook was wrapped in clear plastic and I love it. He sure knows his mother well.

Inside it has two little white pads and a pretty pink lined pad.

Of course, it was a perfect match for my new handbag (I picked out myself)
from Strandbags. My old one is 6yrs and whilst a great size it is tearing at the edges.
It takes me forever to pick anything so I scoured bags online and then went instore to get it at 35% off so really, at $42, this bag is really a steal.

The brand is Laura Jones and it's a tote size but not overly huge. It has two zippered (a must!) compartments with a phone pocket but the best feature I reckon are the two side pockets which are big enough to hold my keys (you know how it takes for-ever to find keys) and I'll most likely put my mobile phone in the other. I was debating on getting the black one but this colour is for all seasons. I still use a little cheap one rom Kmart for quick trips and school pick-up.

My sister made these salmon bites again at mums along with oyster mornay on Saturday. She is sooo good I forgot to thank her. It was so cold though and we all sat outside while the kids ran around. Then on Sunday we had a bbq with my in-laws after church. By afternoon I was pooped and glad to be at home snuggling up in a blanket as it's getting chillier each day. We're only a month away from Winter.

I am so thankful for everything. I love being a mother/wife/sister/daughter/friend even though at times it's stressful and you can't get your own space. I ask God to give me the graces to get through and he is listening to me. I am so thankful for my healthy children and husband, to be able to live in a place where our freedoms are protected and I pray for all those who are suffering whether it be due to poverty, war, persecution of faith/religion/cast, or illness. We should be more kinder to each other and give more readily.

So what next? I shall be reviewing some kids music. Sounds exciting. Sounds like another giveaway!


  1. A belated Mom’s day wish to you Kim. Love the new look for the blog btw. I was busy at a craft bazaar that day and got conned into buying dinner for the whole family. It’s customary that I buy dinner whenever I go for bazaars to make up for lost time but I totally forgot that it’s mom’s day.

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…
