who let him get all old!

was walking home from Daycare with Torby today and had aflashback to pushy this tiny squalling thing in a pram home. Now I walk next to (and quite often still carry) a toddler who points out flowers and colours and planes and buses and counts things. (after being told that the purple flowers were jacarandas and that Laela likes them, they're now known as Laela flowers :) )

I don't remember giving him permission to grow up!

Seeing as he he's doing it anyway, I am very grateful that he is growing up surrounded by an amazing bunch of adults who will be there to guide and teach him, to show him how to live and love and be a good human being.

Sex leads to broken beds

Sex = Pregnant = Baby = Toddler who likes to bounce = Bed deciding to break at 3am (only on my side I might add) = Very sore and sleepy DV who slept on the couch

Updated: Yay for t'riffic husbands and their bed-fixing ways..otherwise I was going to be making some chiropractor very rich :)

musk sticks are teh eviill!!!!

all their alluring pinkness and sugary sirens call....ugh it now hurts!

Torby does not heart haircut day

I lured him to sit down quietly with the beloved Play School dvd, gave him some snackyness to further the distraction and then cruelly hacked off his beautiful long locks.

I don't think I will be forgiven for a long time (or at least until he wants a story read or some food or a hug or something)

In fact..yep, I've been forgiven already :)

Updated with Picture for MrNw

Very American but interesting (what's a mile again?)
Shows you the impact of how you live and how many Earths are needed to sustain your lifestyle.

White Ninja makes me giggle

like or loathe

Do you like the new look?

the deafness is normal right?

I've just got home and showered and am being a good cherub and drinking a huuuuge glass of water. Oh and going w00t and squee and yay and everything. All this because I have just been to see The Cat Empire playing at The Metro.
My god they go orf!!!
I bounced and leapt and generally had a hipshaking good time.
I love the way that they sound on CD and I love they way they go wild when live. The huuge instrumental sections, the organicness, the soundscapes they create, the everything really.
Now to take myself off to bed and wait for the deafness to go away (we were up against the barrier just to the right of the speaker stacks) and my legs to forgive me for all the bouncing I made them do..

home and clean and tired and happy

In the last few days I have;

- been driven slightly insane by a screaming toddler who refuses to sleep.

- had people over for dinner a few nights in a row. It's reminded me how much I like feeding people. Yes, I really am secretly an Italian grandmother.

- celebrated the end of Megzz flute exam. Don't tell her but I'm proud that she did it and learnt stuff and everything. She's very cool. This shall be our little secret.

- an email conversation with an old friend that I think has been good for both of us.

- lunch with chums.

- had a hoot of a time at Galileo's Gazing. Nw decided to take Torby home on Friday night due to the munchkin acting like a bit of a pork chop. Meant I got some time by myself. I was a wild and crazy young thang and sat around chatting to people until at least 9:30pm before trundling off to bed. I am such a party animal these days :) I woke up in the morning to find my tent surrounded by horses so I went and bribed some of them with apples and grass and some of them let me scritch them and everything!!! I went squee a fair bit. I wanna pony!

- set up a tent in dark and rain...mmm damp

- had lots of walks around what will be the new Festival site. so pretty and interesting and I really need to buy gumboots for next year.

- officially became Finn's protege. I think it's because I feed her wine. Considering that I was squiffy and she was not especially sober when she first asked me, I think this is a fair call. Before you ask, I made her ask me again when we were both sober. Hmm wonder how drunk I'll have to get her before she is willing to do it as a ceremony very quietly during an already overly-long court. Wonder how drunk I'd have to get myself as well :)
Must make sure she doesn't get a chance to talk to M to find out how useless an apprentice I am...

- Loved coming home and seeing that the lillies I'd bought a few days ago had all opened up and made the house smell just gorgeous. I really do love flowers. Must make it my mission to always have them in the house. They make me happy.

- Generally had a lovely time (with the exception of Torby throwing hissyfits because he's over-tired)

In a few hours I will be meeting people in town for dinner and to go see The Cat Empire. The perfect end to a pretty fabulous weekend

sunshine, lollipops and rainbows...

well, just the sunshine bit....and a wading pool filled with water, balls and semi-narkoo children splashing about merrily. May there be many more afternoons like it.

Oh, you know how you type a sentence and it comes out looking vaguely icky and sordid, well that one there did. It wasn't meant to. :)

There are few thing in life that are more hateful than a failed nap
