Tres cute if I do say so myself…
Ekka Time August 14, 2013
It’s the time of the Royal Agricultural Exhibition, or Ekka as it’s known.
We haven’t taken the kids so far, cause it is typically busy and a bit full-on, but the lure of the baby animal nursery, where there are hundreds of little animals in an enclosure won out: you can walk right in and feed, pat and generally get close to them.
So C took the morning off work and with his rules of “no carnies, no show bags”, we ventured forth.
And it was fun!
The kids got initiated into the famous Ekka strawberry icecreams…

New household members April 19, 2013
Our new household members arrived last night.
You have never seen two more excited children when they arrived home last night. And this morning the excitement is still palpable.
Here’s hoping we didn’t get any roosters!
Icecream Thursday April 7, 2013
On the way to Quinn’s birthday party. Dad says,
“what are you guys going to do for your birthdays?”
Me: “I’m going to have an icecream sundae party”
A few minutes pass in silence while Oscar contemplates the question.
Oscar: “I’m going to have an icecream Thursday party!”
Another Monday, another trip to the museum February 4, 2013
O overcame his fear of the animatronic dinosaur exhibit at the museum today so we finally had a good look (third time lucky)!
Luna was unfazed.
Christmas … food planning November 30, 2012
so it is the 30th of November.
I have one exam to go then I’m finished with university (for the moment)! Yay.
My mind is already turning to when I’ll have oodles of spare time (comparatively). Or at least less brain-consuming-should-be-studying-worrisome spare time and more what-the-heck-do-whatever-you-want spare time.
I got to work this morning and decided that I needed to capture some information about the Christmas food plans in my head. So I started a board on pinterest. Thinking I had heaps to add.
And ended up with 3 dessert/sweet items. Oh, just thought of another. Make that four.
Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
What are you looking forward to eating/cooking?

Busted – burgers and chips August 14, 2012
Arriving home on Sunday afternoon after spending the day at the office working on an assignment, I noticed little O was drinking a juice that we hadn’t had in the house that morning.
I’d already asked C what they’d got up to that day whilst I was gone, and he had said, “not much, just mooched about”…
But little O set me straight:
Me: “Did you go shopping today & get a juice?”
O: “Yes, see!”
Me: “Where did you go shopping?”
O: “To the shop that sells burgers and chips.“
Cue lots of laughing and sheepish looks from C.
My big girl July 21, 2012
Dear Little Miss L,
or, as you are more frequently called in our house: boo boo.
Boo boo. Derived from Boona. Which rhymes with Luna. As in Luna Boona, shortened to Boo boo. Of course.
I feel remiss in a number of ways. Not only did your first birthday pass without my mentioning it here, but as I have sheepishly admitted to a number of people, it was so uneventful that we even forgot to take a photo of you on the day.
So, a belated public Happy Birthday my darling.
You are a cheerful, happy, rotund and gleeful little even-tempered darling. We all love you dearly, most of all perhaps your brother. Who climbs into your cot each morning to play as soon as he wakes up. We wake most mornings to the sound of the two of you giggling gleefully from your room.
And often at night that is the sound of you going to bed too: you and Oscar playing “the giggle game” with each other from separate rooms (you both quickly worked out it was a game that could be played without the need to see each other)…
Luna, you are beautiful and we love you very much.
