#110 When things go wrong…

Could also be called when things don’t go as planned Mama and I had an outing planned for today with one kid coming along. The others were still a bit unwell, so they stayed home with my husband. We knew we had a fair bit of running around to do in preparation for a birthday…

#109 Social Media

Is it weird to reply to people you don’t personally know via Twitter or instagram posts they share? I mean obviously they share and post for a reason. If the person is asking directly for a response, is it still weird to respond? I’m often unsure about the etiquette of the whole scene. Maybe I’m…

#108 All Nighter

Last night ended up being a bit of a big one and not much sleep was had. Mama arrived today and we had a lovely dinner at home. Nobody cooked because we ordered in. We talked and we laughed. We all enjoyed a movie together. It’s been a good day! All those who were feeling…

#107 Oh no!

Indeed! A few more of the kids are sick. One picked up a stomach bug. Not much fun for him 😦 I’m doing what I can to help everyone who is feeling awful to be comfortable and feel comforted. Hoping they will feel better soon. Here is a picture of three of the cats asleep…

#106 Autumn

I love the changing seasons, especially the change from Summer to Autumn. Today I enjoyed a little sunshine along with a fresh breeze. There was also some rain and overcast skies. I enjoy having the doors open to make the most of wind blowing, it’s invigorating. So lovely to be able to have fresh cool…

#105 Water

Tonight I’m only stopping by quickly. It’s raining and I’m in a hurry to get into my bed and read my book. So nice to be tucked up, with the soft lamp light and sound of the rain as a backdrop. I’m flanked on either side by people I love and I am truly happy….

#104 Old Bananas, a Sad Carrot and Zombies

Okay the plan for the old, overripe bananas to become part of a loaf went astray. Instead they became some nice fluffy banana fritters that I made while we had visitors. They are always good and by the time they were ready, my morning coffee had gone cold, so they were intact, perfect! Lunchtime came…

#103 Things Change

Being okay with change means being able to accept that circumstances are not set in stone. We are always in a state of flux and that itself can be comforting when you are able to go with the flow of life. Situations are ever changing. Sometimes quickly, other times slowly. All of it is okay….

#102 Cats are…

I love my cats. I love my dog. Here’s the story, so finally after weeks of deliberation, I bought my dog a new bed. It wasn’t cheap, as far as I’m concerned, but it was on sale. I happily bring it home and put it where the dog sleeps, so he can try it out….

#101 Sniffles.

So a few of the fruits/kids are unwell with some yucky virus. We are settling in for a quiet weekend of rest. I have some nice oils going in the diffusers to help with the congestion and just because they smell good too. One is tucked up in bed with a hot water bottle and…
