Caught Out!

Ok, so for the record, I've been changing nappies for 9 years and 4 months STRAIGHT today...

Yesterday, something happened that has NEVER happened to me before...

Ari had been asleep for a couple of hours, and I was getting tired and wanted to go to bed, but didn't want him to wake up within the hour, so decided to change him and feed him up a bit to "extend" him...

So, because he was fast asleep and he HATES changes, I decided to change him on my lap (yeah, you can see what's coming, right)...

So, I get his nappy of, and seconds later I hear that familiar sound of him pissing all over my dressing gown... As I'm kind of loudly ordering Dave to get me a spit rag, Ari then proceeds to spew poo like Mt St Helens, from the bottom end, all over my pyjamas...

I LOVE parenting...

Ok, so here's my REAL reason for blogging - some photos...

Bryn's been begging me to hold Ari, so yesterday I finally gave in... Bryn is so proud!!! Ari is so PISSED OFF!!!


Bryn adores Ari, and insists on me taking many photos of them together - look at that size difference! Every night I feed Ari, then feed Bryn to sleep and seriously Bryn feels and looks like a giant after nursing Ari - my BIG little guy!!! He's so sweet though!!!


I can never really get over how little Ari looks in the car capsule. And I swear he's grown already!


Awwww, he's so sweet! Even after doing a two poo/wee fountain all over me!

Awww Ive been stalking your blog lately hoping for more pics.
Hehehehe about the poo/wee fountain, just glad it wasn't me.

I know what you mean. Beren felt like a giant when I bought freya home too.

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
