Well, puffy, red faced and with jeans and a cardy and less pretty hair (with helmet of course). Fun though!
Can't wait for Moo to start riding so we can go out together with a thermos of hot chocolate and a baguette. *dream*

I've been meaning to post about this for a long time. My lovely brother- and sister-in-law gave me this lovely necklace for my last birthday. So cute (and not really that spooky).
Another favorite (but not owned... yet!) is Girl on a swing......
...... I should add that to my wish list....

... this post is for me and in no way a hint!
I find when it comes to birthday/Christmas time and people ask me what I want I can NEVER think of anything. I end up asking for a book voucher or the like. Right this very minute I have thought of a couple of things I'd like so I'm documenting it here for (my) future reference:
Coming Home to Eat - by Jude Blereau (I have 'Wholefood' and it is one of my favorite cook books)
Anything from Jurlique
Subscription to Ottobre kids (either in Swedish or English)
IKEA voucher (not particularly exciting but I can buy myself a nice cushion or something.....)
Hand knitted socks (not with itchy scratchy wool! I'm not fussy... much!)
The Creative Family and Handmade Home both by Amanda Blake Soule
And that's it for now but I will update as I think of things. At least I'll know where to find my list - not like any of those cheeky paper lists that gets lost...... (oops)

... and may or may not have been interested. I'm more than a little excited to have just heard that a Lindt cafe has opened up in Melbourne. It opened less than a week ago and is located on Collins street between Swanston and Elizabeth streets. Mmmmmmm. Drool.
*hint hint* Mr Husband - a perfect place to take your lovely wife as a 'surprise.'

I went back to the doctors and swapped antibiotics because the first lot wasn't doing diddly squat. I have a lovely case of suspected 'walking pneumonia' which doesn't respond to the kind of drugs I got the first time. A blood test will confirm the diagnosis but all I can say is 'WOO HOO' the new meds are working a treat and I'm starting to feel like myself again after 2 whole weeks in bed!!
It's made me so thankful that most of the time I am really quite healthy. Yay!

I feel like I'm finally coming out the other side of this horrible 2 week (so far) lurgy. I wanted to post but my brain is still fuzzy so here is a random selection of pics. No real theme. Kind of like my thoughts.....

Last week we got a letter. I looked at the sender and saw it was from the preschool where we tried to enrol Moo. My stomach flipped. It was just like getting my exam results in the mail! I was afraid to open it....... and considered asking my hubby to do it. Then I could see the text through the envelope.... I peeked..... it said..... ' We are pleased...!' ~~PHEW~~ Big sigh of relief.
So, Moo is starting school in January, three days a week for three hours each time. I am soooo happy! She loved the school when we visited and no where else has these kind of hours for kids her age. Plus, all the other preschools won't accept her until April 28 because she doesn't turn three until then (but we would still be expected to pay fees).
Now all I have to do is get my license because it's impossible to walk there and back three times a week (over an hour walk each way is my guess). I'm booked in for September so I've got to practice, practice, practive.

I've been really sick for a couple of weeks. *blah* But, we went on holiday (despite lack of motivation) for a few days (at my parents lake retreat ; ) I borrowed my Dad's camera and took poor Moo out for a walk. She's been house bound with her poor feeble sick mother.......
