Life As I Know It….

Life has been moving slowly these last few weeks, but not unenjoyably so. My three ratbags seem to go through stages of good and evil not-so-charming behaviour, and at the moment they’re on a good streak. Relatively speaking. I’ve cleared away almost all of their toys and they’ve just been pottering around building wobots out… Continue reading Life As I Know It….

October/November {round up}

I missed my October round up, so I’m jumbling it all together in this post. I’ve been busy painting, photographing, Christmas gift shopping, reading, child-wrangling, European holiday planning, and generally bumming around at home, taking naps and toilet-training and shaving off my winter coat of leg hair. Doing: I attempted NaNoWriMo this year but only… Continue reading October/November {round up}

September {round up}

Blogging is still taking a back seat, but I am happy to report that September was a much better month than August!

I also made dinner – which doesn’t happen very often: pork, oregano and manchego cheese meatballs. It was AMAZING and definitely going into rotation. Wearing:… Continue reading July {round up}

June {Round up}

Doing: a suprising amount of baking, mostly tied to my week-long birthday celebrations, and really enjoying our holidays after my husband had his exams in mid-June. It’s been lovely and relaxing for me to have him around so often. He went to work after almost two weeks off and I had completely forgotten what it… Continue reading June {Round up}

May {Round Up}

Celebrating: Ronan’s 2nd birthday. I took some photos of myself and the children using the tripod and camera remote I bought myself for Mother’s Day, with moderate success: I planned to make a proper cake and buy him a sketchpad and do balloons and candles and stuff, but we ended up with packet-mix cupcakes and… Continue reading May {Round Up}
