Well today I am full of the joys of spring!! The sun is shining, my daughter is in an angelic mood, and we've just come indoors from sitting on the deck eating icecream - what could be more perfect!

And then I see there is a package at the front door - hazaa! A package I have been waiting for - this divine vintage top I saw on the internet. Fantastic price, friendly trader, super quick service and.....oh so absolutely gorgeous - from its lace trim to its picot fabric, to its gorgeous almost glowing orb buttons. It is absolutely perfect!!!.........for someone so very much smaller than me :( It was advertised as a size 12, which I am, but there is no way on God's green earth that the twins are ever going to fit into that top and my supremely wonderful day has been every so slightly my brain is working to figure out how I can wear it anyway, or alter it.....

Anyway, here it is so you can admire it too!

Alright....I'm trying to think of a theme.....

For my blog - I'm not sure I should do a fashion one because my wardrobe is currently limited and boring!!

S's wardrobe would be far more interesting.....maybe I should take a photo of my lunch every day? I'll keep thinking....

I'm just over this blah weather and wishing for some sunshine!!

Should I or shouldn't I?

Saw this divine dress today, gorgeous leaf green floral print - empire line, linen blend. Just what I've been looking for: trans-seasonal (could wear it as is in summer, with a merino and knee high boots right now!), some colour for my wardrobe, something pretty to wear to S's 2nd birthday party. Cons: doesn't quite fit across the boobs and is just a little baggy across the small of my was on sale for $69 reduced from $499 and I totally love the fabric.....not sure if I should buy it and hope that the weight I lose in between now and the 2nd of September will make it fit just perfectly or if I would be wasting my money.....I think I'll sit on the idea until Wednesday - if it's still there then I'll decide.

Thursday, August 14, 2008 baby is growing up!

Yesterday she got her first bank statement....and opened the envelope all by herself!! Today we went and put the money into said account. It had to be a family occasion, but I did stop myself from taking the camera - wouldn't that have been naf!!

Today we went to the park in the pouring rain - there were no queues for the play equipment and thus, no tantrums - thank God for raingear is all I can say!!

Loving all the new spring fashions out too - will be nice to inject some colour into my wardrobe - I wouldn't bother to show you what I'm wearing today - all black and grey!!

Today's musing.....why is it that the new fashions come out almost a full season ahead of when they are required? And for that matter, why the heck is there Christmas decorations being put up in September??? Well they were last year, probably see them next week.....LOL

As a 1930s wife, I am

Take the test!

Missed a day....not that anyone will notice!!

Missed a day because we hosted an emergency coffee group here - chaos with five 2 year olds in a postage stamp sized lounge room, but on the plus side, my lemon syrup cake (with cream!!) was absolutely divine.....should have taken a photo of it for you....oh well!

Musing of the day.....why is it that we classify food as 'bad' and 'good'? I am trying to redefine my relationship with food to set a better example for my daughter, after reading a fantastic book "Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters" by Courtney Martin - a must read for all women!!

New to blogging....

Alrighty then, here we go. I'm new to this blogging lark, so be gentle!

This will be a place for my general musings and silliness.....

Today I am wondering why it is that escalators are called escalators, even though they go up AND down....hmmmm

Also noticed on my bathroom scales "If you have any questions, please phone...." I have a question - how come I'm not losing any weight just by standing on your scales every morning - riddle me this!!
