Dance off your assets!

I'm a huge fan of cheesy pop music. Unashamedly!!!!! Everyone who knows me well knows about my sometimes questionable taste in music and movies.

I love this song!! Go Guy!

Makes me smile!
Makes me get up and dance madly around the room with the kids singing into the imaginary microphone!!

Happy Birthday, my baby!

It's official - we have a five year old!

It seems like only a heartbeat ago we had a bundle of fuzzy nuzzling and gorgeous new baby smell, wrapped up in a blue and white he's on the first real step to Big Boy. I know now what all those other mother's who said to make the most of it, as time will fly by, mean now. I miss that baby but I adore the big boy.

I adore his quirky little facial expressions, his morning cuddles in bed, his infectious giggle, his "Mummy - i love you" 's that can fill the gap at any lull in conversation and most of all his innate sense of kindness and empathy. He is truly a beautiful person, inside and out.

I wish all the best things in the world for you, Dom - Fun, Laughter, Love.

Lovely Sunday

Tried to go to Collingwood Children's Farm for breakfast this morning - started persisting down about 5 mins into our short drive so we flagged it and went to Olmecs on Bridge Rd, Richmond instead. Sensational! Kids had a fine nutritious breakfast of pancakes with maple syrup and ice cream, baby cino with marshmallows and an OJ (oh well, at least it was freshly squeezed!) 

We are now convinced that Charlie has an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other telling him what to do from one moment to the next. Those cute blonde curls and cheeky grin help him get away with murder!

Hi Hip Hurray! Have finished my 24 Halloween blocks for the Halloween Spooktacular Swap. 12 9 patch blocks were finished ages ago but i was dragging the anchor trying to get the 12 themed block Creepy critters done - here they are! I used an embroidery pattern off the net by Fern Treacy at
So now to the Dolls quilt for DQS 7! A sneak peek...

My Creative Space and I need motivation!

I read lots of lovely blogs every day and often see "My Creative Space" entries...this is mine. It is a bit of a tip at the moment. It was even worse before the lovely cleaner came on Saturday and vacuumed up all the tiny bits of fabric, iron- on thingummy and thread. Raw edge applique does not lend itself very well to tidiness, I have discovered, well, not anywhere in my universe, anyway.

I am trying to get this finished for a little girl who's is a special family friend. It was her birthday yesterday but instead of finishing it I just sat around the house all day eating chocolate and watching movies with the kids! Well, to be honest, Dom played games on the computer in his pyjamas, Charlie watched TV and played with toys and I watched Baby Mama and a French movie called The Dinner Guest. I ate two whole packets of lollies! 
We went to the Kinder trivia night on Saturday night and had a great time, but I drank loads of Cosmopolitans. I had a great time but was really well behaved. Woke up Sunday morning, no hangover! No dry horrors! Bloody miracle! But I felt really lethargic all day and couldn't stop eating for the life of me. I knew there had to be payback somewhere! The quilt got sold. Could've done better. Enough said.

Today I have to get  going on this! And the Halloween blocks need doing and the Dolls quilt too. And Dom's Star Wars birthday invites. No more Cosmos for me.
