Just a catch up...

The days and weeks have been flying by for me...where does the time go?
I've been busy in my sewing room and in the kitchen...I've also been busy ringing tradesmen. The bathroom Reno is happening at last. I've picked all the elements (except paint colour...which will most likely be one of the thousands of shades of white). Mr Pixies has put in for holidays in mid October and I have my dad on board for all the difficult stuff and for the experience he will bring.
I'm super excited but unbearably nervous all at the same time...you know something is on your mind when it carries over into your dreams...and lately I have been dreaming about putting up wallboard and waterproofing and tiling...it's a little disturbing to tell the honest truth.

I've been less than enthusiastic with the camera these past couple of months...the weather hasn't been brilliant. We had a taste of early Spring and some lovely sunny days, but lately we are back to the depths of winter with wind squalls and hailstones and overcast freezing cold, stick your butt in the heater and only move with great reluctance kind of days. Certainly not inspiring me to capture anything specific.

Sophia received a letter in the mail from her Primary School yesterday telling her that a place has been reserved for her in Prep next year...she's growing up so fast now and can't wait for the school year to begin.
Charlotte is toilet training, and things are looking good for a nappy free existence for her in the immediate future.
Darcy is now seven and a half months old and his sleeping has barley improved. He wakes at least every 2 hours during the night looking for a cuddle or a boobie. He is very busy trying to crawl, but is only managing reverse gear at the moment. He can however get to a sitting position from laying down and has pulled himself to standing against the couch and me.

Fathers Day was lovely...Sams coffee mug is now in circulation at work...all the ladies think it's gorgeous and all the fellas, well they think "meh!!".

I did manage to make a little something for my little fella...here he is modelling it with the serious face!

The Mo Tee

Christmas is only 3 months away now...Shhhh!!
I have lots to do...I want to make handmade gifts for the girls and their cousins again this year.
At least this time around I'm not heavy with an eight pound baby...I just have a clingy Velcro baby to contend with.
Wish me luck.
