Things that make me smile …

This morning I managed to get into my son’s ‘recreation’ room without him around … this is a rare opportunity, so I made the most of it! I put DVDs and games back on the shelves, filed receipts away safely, sorted books back onto his bookcases (in order, I am a librarian, after all!), put […]

Licensed to chill …

Yes, that’s the sound of my heart you can hear chilling away quietly in the corner. How did it get to this, that I now have two children playing in the traffic, in control of powerful cars, and at the mercy of all the lunatic drivers who currently roam the highways and byways? The girl […]

Geocaching 101 …

While blog-hopping super early this morning, I came across a mention of geocaching that reminded me of something the girl and I did last night. We went on our first geocache hunt … and sadly, we didn’t ‘win’! Just in case you haven’t come across geocaching, it is a ‘high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout […]

Happy birthday!!!

Sixteen years ago, this girl and I met, on a Friday afternoon, at 1.45 pm. She was in a hurry to get into the world, arriving three hours after her first intention to do so! She has pretty much been running ever since, full of enthusiasm and life and chatter and music and noise and […]

Just 5 things …

[Credit: template by Cathy Z, adapted … ] This layout has been rattling around in my head for some time now, and when I saw Cathy Z’s freebie template on her blog this week, I knew what I wanted to do. Basically I wanted to document some big changes that our Aspie has gone through […]

What’s cookin’ … ?

Veggie pies … that’s what is cooking! One of the many nice things about having my mum visit is that she helps me cook up a storm while she is here. I am not a cook, missed out on inheriting that gene completely, and I am bored witless by the whole cooking thing, but I […]

sharing movies – tomorrow when the war began …

[image from here … ] It’s time for a movie review … we have been waiting impatiently to catch Tomorrow When the War Began, the girl and I. John Marsden began writing this YA series (seven books) in 1993, so the story has been around for quite a while. It is hands-down my favourite series […]

Make a wish …

We found a fluffy dandelion on our back lawn last week, and I thought it would make a fun photo. I asked the girl to ‘make a wish’ and blow, but both of us got the giggles and taking a decent photo under those conditions proved to be almost impossible. The image above was the […]

Shopping with Sheldon …

Funny story time. Our boy spends a lot of time sitting on his computer chair, playing games, writing a novel, surfing, listening to music … the usual things that many almost nineteen year olds do. Well, maybe not the ‘writing a novel’ thing. Over time, his chair (which was second-hand when it moved into his […]

Missing my baby …

This week I am down one child … she is off adventuring with her grandparents! I had a phone call today … ‘Mum, I think I would rather go rock-climbing than paint-balling, is that ok? Can Nana sign the form that says they aren’t responsible if I kill myself rock-climbing?’ Sure! No problems! (I told […]
