My current definition of excitement…

…my first sale on Etsy! To the lovely person who hit buy on my shop on Friday evening, you will never know how much you made my day (and the whole weekend).  Well I suppose I could have sent a note in the package saying that, but that doesn’t seem somehow professional.  I am not…

My current definition of balanced diet…

My daughter wants demands crackers for dinner.  However at 2 and a quarter she knows balance is important in a diet and at least gets the honey, peanut butter, and marmite jars out of the drawer and onto the bench all by herself.  Mum succumbs – nine crackers, three of each – is balanced isn’t…

Heard my daughter awaken from her night’s sleep.  As per routine I glance at my iPhone for the time, 6.20 am, that’s not too bad, wishfully would prefer later for a Saturday morning.  Her father beside me is already awake, slightly unusual.  He makes some comment about it being early.  Head downstairs, give little missy…

My current definition of time poor…

Dad is at home full time at the moment, I am working three days a week, yet somehow there are still not enough waking hours to do all we would like to do and get done all we would like to get done.  Hardly our little girl’s fault…but where can we sheet home the blame??!!!
