The Wiggles


Monday June 1st

It’s finally here my little man has been waiting months now and today is the day.

The Wiggles are in town !!!!

We were a little early but not early enough to get too bored waiting for the show to start. Our seats were on the second level, mind you I think that they a) need a lift in the place or b) I need to do more exercise, all those stairs thank god I was sitting down :)

It was a rainy day so my man could make it too. I love it when we do things as a family.



We got a Waggs head band and tail and a wiggle beanie before the show.

here he is doing the Quack Quack, cockadoodle doo actions which I thought was funny


my little man ended up taking some of the pictures on my camera, all I had to show him was which button to push and how to pop the flash up and he was off. They turned out great and most of them are straight too, bonus.

It was a great afternoon :)


A long time coming – update

So I started writing this a little while ago ok so like January. So I thought that I better get to it and finish this post before it is christmas again and what comes next is way out of date :)

Well Christmas has come and gone for another year. Christmas day was surprisingly nice. Lunch was held at our house with all of my in laws and the kids, 7 adults and 6 children, so it was a little cramped in our smallish house.

Then my little man and I went off to my aunties for dinner with all of my family, minus Kelly though.

I was so full and tired after that.

even though we didnt have an overly late night I had some packing to do as my little man and I were off on a road trip for boxing day. 4.5 hours of driving ment that we left at 6am to get to Balarat for lunch with my dads girlfriends children and grand children.

for me and my sisters we were meeting some of them for the first time so I was a little nervous, they are all so lovely though.


I managed to catch a few Z’s on the way home and I was so impressed that my little man traveled so long so well.

From boxing day every year for as long as I can remember my family have camped out at the Lake Hume weir resort for a couple of weeks. this year being no different really only that there were 2 different camps to visit in stead of them being side by side.

this is the view from dads spot


it was the first time that we had been in that spot and while it wasn’t the one that was originally booked it turned out to be quite handy to have a fence to contain my little man somewhat so I could relax slightly when I was there.

Happy New Year

I love to see in the new year with my family out at the weir and this one was no different. just a few quite dinks and a chat at the camp. It was lovely.

Oh and the other news that happened in January is that we found out that we were expecting bubba #2. so very exciting :)


Well this month my little man turned 3 so he’s not so little anymore.


here he is blowing out the candles, he can now blow in a direction of his choice, so we had to light them a couple of times cause it was so much fun :)

Play School Concert

my little man has been getting into playschool on t.v. so when I spotted that they were coming to Wodonga I thought he may enjoy going


and here he is looking at the show, such a cute look, he has humpty on his knee too.


So I know think I am up to date as we haven’t been doing much else.

I have been slowly trying to de-clutter the house but that is such a huge task and one that I am not the best at, those of you who know me in real life know that I hold on to every thing, not kidding, I have so much stuff.

The main goal that I have is to make the spare room the baby’s space. So I have somewhere to put all the baby stuff.

Its raining its pouring….

Thursday 18th

Today was our BaBs Christmas Gathering. We all headed over to the Botanical gardens and gathered in the rotunda and had a share lunch. It was still a bit damp under foot as it has been raining again, but that didn’t stop all the children playing. It was great to be with other parents that are ok with just letting their children be.

as people were leaving and the day was coming to an end it started to pour down, it was so heavy and then the hail came, my little man and his friends were amazed at the balls, once it all stopped the kids were out again to explore.

I said to my little man ‘are you eating it ?’ and he replied ‘yeah, I eat it’ which lead me ask ‘is it yummy?’ and he replied ‘its yummy in my tummy’ and he agreed that it was cold. although I’m sure his mouth wasn’t as cold as his friends as her mouth was full and my little man was putting them in one at a time. Oh how cute it was to watch them :)


By the time we were all heading home my two friends and I had half naked children as they had all stripped off as each piece of clothing got wet, too funny.


Update, Update :)


well it had been a busy few weeks here and I have a feeling the busyness is still happening for a while yet.

December and January are the busiest times for me.

So what have we been up to I hear you say well……

the first weekend in December we all put the Christmas tree up


Wednesday the 3rd my little man and I went to Wagga to meet up with a lovely Liberated learning mumma and her beautiful children.

we spent a few hours at the botanical gardens playing in the playground and walking through the little Zoo they have there.

although I was late and forgot my little mans shoes it was such a great day and I was sad to go home, as I hate good byes.

last weekend it rained, yes you read it correctly, it rained almost non stop from friday morning till sunday when it rained on and off that day.

so an inside weekend for us though we did manage a trip to the park sunday night.

my little man and I finally planted something, last week we planted sunflowers and they are just popping out of the ground now its so exciting I hope they grow :)

Oh and my man caught a little lizard and made a nice home for it in the spare fish tank, but it obviously didn’t think so as it was gone by the morning :(  we still haven’t found it, I only hope it made it outside ok.

Its Show Time

On the weekend the show came to town.

I haven’t been in years and I wasn’t planning on going this year as my little man is only 2.5 yrs and well to be honest I’m not keen on the huge crowds and loud music and I find it quite stressful  in those places  with my little man being so active.

But I agreed to go. Here are some pictures from our first time at the local show……  



This is my little man with his dada playing the clowns for the first time.

He also went on the big blow up Lightning McQueen slide, had a pony ride and went in the Mirrored maze. 

Then we went off to find the show bags and got a Wall-e show bag.

By the time we had finished all that it was time for the fire works

2008_1103Image0047This was the first time I had been at the show for the fire works, which was nice.

After jumping a few times as the loud noise scared him my little man enjoyed the pretty colors of the display


I will never forget the look on his face, It was just priceless :)

We then went home I was dirty, tired, and could hardly breathe for the dust but I must admit I did have a little fun.



Nappy making

Thursday 30th October.

Today I went to a special BaBs meeting where we had a nappy making workshop.

The workshop was run by Peep-O, who is one of the local mums.

there was 6 of us all first time nappy makers.

I must say it was harder than what I thought it would be.

I hope to do more so I will get better, eventually :)

I have a wonderful old sewing machine that use to belong to my mum but while I love it to death, it just kept jamming on me, right in the middle of sewing.

Aghh so frustrating

I also have an overlocker but no idea on how to re thread it and it seems to be quite a time consuming task that I have started but am yet to finish.

As I was on a time limit mine is still a work in progress but you can get the idea.

Tea Anyone?

Saturday while outside bouncing on the trampoline and singing one of the wiggles songs about having a tea party, my little man and his cousin K thought it would be fun to make some rosie tea.

I found a small bucket to pop the rose petals in and they went about filling the bucket up


Now in order to make tea one must add water so here they both are adding the water. The tea turned out well and they had heaps of fun.

Then it was off to the pool to cool off :) not that it was overly warm but I have discovered that my little man will jump in to a freezing cold pool so it really doesn't matter what the weathers like.


It is great to see him use his imagination now, which I have only noticed in the last week or so. We do all sorts of stuff, eat hamburgers and chips at the table under the shade, I have watched him order takeaway and talk on the phone.


Every day is something different and I love it! :)
