Thanks again for your lovely wishes and thoughts. Jane you are so right. I know I will wonder why I didn't do it months ago once I have finally taken the plunge.
My friend Bethany dropped in a few weeks ago while I was trying to get the lights working. Perfect timing as she is studying photography at uni. At least she was able to confirm for me that I wasn't doing anything wrong, and the lead was faulty ;) Anyway, bit off topic there, but she was holding Ethan while we were chatting in the kitchen and he looked so cute, so had to snap a pic. The thing he is holding at the bottom of the photo is Beths necklace. This is the last layout that I did on the weekend.
Today has been insanly busy! This is the first time I have sat down, and it's only for a little breather before I go clean up. I usually do photoshoots on Saturday mornings, but the girl I have next couldn't do Saturday, so we are doing Friday... early! I have to get Liam to preschool, then my neighbour is going to watch Ethan for me while I do the photos. Sooo, my usual Friday morning clean, has just become a Thursday night clean.
So, today... we were up early. Organised the paperwork and parcels I had to post today. Took Liam to swimming. He took his goggles today, and Marisa said to keep bringing them as he swam so well.... oh and he had his first swim in the big pool! So excited!! They are starting the trasition, so at the end of his lesson they have a few minutes in the big pool. He jumped in and swam to Marisa, then she helped him turn around and he swam back to the edge. He did have 'muscles' on (floaties), but we were all very impressed. From swimming we headed to Main Street and ordered picked up my business cards, and grabbed a few groceries. Then over to Bentons Square to get Liam's hair cut (he has kindy photos tomorrow), then home for a quick lunch and repack. Dropped Liam at kinder, took Ethan back to Mornington and posted my parcels, looked around for some more photo props (I have a little something in the planning, I'll share when its here and completed). Back home to put together my photo display for the kinder fundraiser, which I thought was tonight, but is actually not until the 8th JULY! (at least it's done). Then back to kinder to pick up Liam, then home! Wanted to fall asleep, but pushed on and got boys fed, bathed and into bed early so I could get on with the cleaning etc now. So all up today I think I strapped Ethan in and out of his carseat SIXTEEN TIMES! And set the pram up/down EIGHT TIMES! I think it's time to drag out the stroller. No wonder my pelvis is still playing up.
Anyone want to send a cleaning fairy my way?
Oh, and I've just send Brett out for some Club Peppermint chocolate! (mmm maybe I'll just buy another pair of jeans LOL) Jane I think you have converted me!
