This Is...show off time

Apologies for being a day late...I was falling asleep sitting up at the computer last night. I thought I would show you my latest purchase for Jack. I found these great blocks in a little card shop the other day. They are building blocks with pictures from Golden Books on them. Super cute! With a little help, Jack can stack all 10 of them up

My mum has the full set of Golden books at her house from when I was a kid. I think I'll have to dig them out next time I'm there

On My Desk....

Unfortunaltely today I have this..no lovely fabric or crafty goodness. I have about 5 loads of washing to be folded. I'm not allowed to do any crafting until it's done. Were getting so desperate for jocks that I'm wearing ones with The Simpsons characters on them (lisa to be precise)...a bad impluse purchase many years ago

This Is....what I wanted to be when I grew up

An air hostess..when I was 10 years old it seemed very glamorous. I thought I would travel to exotic places, wear red lipstick and then marry a pilot.

Right, back to reality, once I finally did step on a plane I hated it. I feel sick just at the thought. I will fly if I have to but I don't think I'll ever be able to go anywhere more than 4 hours away.

This Is....what I do with a spare 10 minutes

I'm usually on the computer. Either blogging or checking up on my favorite forum. When I was pregnant with Jack I joined an online parenting forum. I lurked around for a while researching all I could about childbirth and all that fun stuff.

I finally joined a "due in February group" It has turned out to be one of the best things I've ever done. I speak to these girls everyday. We share everything. If were ever having a crisis with Jack or anything they are the first ones I ask for advice. I've met most of our group. Even though we're spread across Melbourne we try to meet up once a fortnight. Some of the girls are interstate but I'm hopeful to meet them all one day.

self serve

I came out into the kitchen yesterday to find a bowl of watermelon on the floor with a big hole in the top of the cling wrap. Two days ago, while I was in the shower, he pushed his little table over to the kitchen bench, climbed up and peeled himself a banana.

a little to late...

I finally got this one finished. After trying it on though it's too chunky for this weather so it will have to keep until next winter. I just looped the buttons thru the holes in the knitting so when it stretches it can make it tighter or wear it a different way

On My Desk....

On Friday night I nabbed anna laura's 250th sale on etsy. I bought a lovely felt lady badge called 'Hope' and included in the parcel was another badge named 'Jacinta', a gorgeous fabric purse, some lovely screenprinted fabric and a fabbo handrawn original card. It's all so fantastic....can't wait to wear my ladies

yarn barn

Jack had a playdate with one of his little friends today so I used my time wisely....I went to the Yarn Barn. What a great little shop. It's wall to wall wool and out the back they have big tubs of felting wool. I restrained myself and only bought 3 balls of wool and a card of fabbo buttons. I don't know what I'm going to make with them yet but they were too nice not to buy

On the way home I stopped at an op shop I've had my eye on for a while and picked up these great old knitting needles. They still have the original tags too. Yummy!

Happy Father's Day!

We had a lovely afternoon at the zoo with the family. Hubby would be horrified that I put his picture up here but I thought it was just too cute not to share. Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there!

Georgie Love

My chiyogami range of Necklaces, Earrings and Bobby Pins are now available online at Georgie Love. The pendent shown has cute little goldfish swimming across it. The site has a fantastic range of handmade goodies..check it out! Sally has given me a lovely write up in her blog too

This Is....my favorite band of all time

I'm pretty obsessed with Red Hot Chili Peppers..I LOVE Anthony Kiedis. He's the only man I would ever leave my husband for. I became a fan when Blood Sugar Sex Magik was released

I've seen them live once. The By The Way Tour..I think it was 2003. Awesome! The venue was shite (Telstra Dome) but they were amazing. When they were here in 2007 Jack was only 8 weeks old so I didn't go. I was still recovering from a long labour and breastfeeding around the clock. Hubby went. I was insanely jealous. He called me during the concert so I could hear them play but it made me even more jealous

My favorite album is By The Way and favorite song...well I don't think I could ever choose. It changes all the time. 'I could have lied' is pretty close.

Thanks to curlypops for a great theme and to three buttons for hosting! Cheers Ladies

I went to in.cube8r today. My cube is full to the brim with necklaces, rings, brooches and pins again. As I was childless I grabbed a coffee and browsed Smith St. It's lovely to do some shopping without little octopus hands grabbing everything in sight.

I have a climber...who's worked out he can move chairs to get what he want's. I'm seriously considering moving them to the shed - the chairs not the kid! Yesterday he tried 15 times (in the space of 10 minutes) to get up on the table...can anyone say determined?
