At my house

At my house Erin and I are recovering from our excursion to see Dinosaurs Alive with 100+ excitable 5 year olds. Erin is sleeping and I have been flaked out on the couch watching Oprah, stuffing the Poppy Doll I am making Abby for Christmas and refuelling with a Bickfords Lime Cordial. Ahhh.

At my house Abby is making tooth wobbling a full time occupation! Last night I whipped up a tooth fairy cushion ready for the big event.

At my house it is very quiet because Rory is at his Nanna's.
At my house the cherries are ripening and for the first time in the 4 years since we moved in we are hoping to eat them before the birds do. We have netted some of the branches to make sure.

At my house the warm weather has arrived with gusto and we are all sporting pink noses after our day in the sun yesterday. We spent the morning at the kids market and the afternoon at the beach.

And I finally got to wear the new skirt I have been hanging out to show off. I just sewed together two squares of Amy Butler's Love fabric and shirred around the waist. I probably shouldn't be showing off those white legs yet but oh well.

At my house we are thinking about Christmas celebrations and presents and Abby's long summer break. Overseas and interstate visitors, camping at the beach, lunch with 30+ members of Chris' family and a plan to take the handmade pledge again this year.

At my house today I am wondering how to keep the chooks cool in this warm weather and what to do about a chook who won't get her butt of our eggs!

At my house this morning Abby re-created a scene from Sex and the City 2. Here are her glammed-up barbies riding camels. And no, she hasn't seen the movie.

At my house I'd better go and put tea in the slow cooker so it can slowly cook our chilli con carne.

Find out what's happening at other people's houses over at Lou's.

  2. That camel pick made me laugh and laugh! Can't wait to see those munchkins in a few weeks :)

  3. That all sounds busy and lovely at the same time. Nice that you could have some flake out time on the couch. I have recently pulled out some bickford's cordial aswell. It is certainly the weather for it. Great that you can juts 'whip up' a toothfairy cushion. Very cute. Love the bunting in the trees too. Very cute. Hope you have a good week. Lou.
