After spending an afternoon out at the Cleft Palate Clinic at Westmead Children’s Hospital with Sophie this week, I am in in complete awe of the human body, how it works and how it can adapt (with a great bit of determination from its owner!) to overcome structural problems. When we bring our bundles of … Read moreThe Human Body
Where does the time go? Already we are over halfway through the year and there never seems to be enough hours in the day. I keep saying I will write more often and yet another week passes. I keep telling myself I don’t need to write a book with each entry and can keep it … Read moreTime!
What a day! It has been bucketing down! Normally on a Wednesday, Amy has ballet after school, but thankfully, today, she decided it was definitely too wet. This was good news as we got drenched walking home. So what did we do? After lovely hot showers, it was time for a hot chocolate and some … Read moreIt’s cold and wet
Gosh, it’s been a while and so much has happened! Greg has his new job which involves a lot of travel, (he is, as I write, in the air, en route home from a conference in San Francisco), the girls are back at school and preschool, I’ve dabbled in a little work, helping out another … Read moreBack again!
How time flies during school holidays. They are never long enough for me to do everything I plan and want to do with the girls. This week has flown by. Amy’s birthday was a lot of fun and I think we spent most of the day eating!! Pancakes for breakfast, pub for lunch and curry … Read moreMenu Plan Week Beginning Mon 11/1/10

Luckily we did have a legless Barbie already, courtesy of Sophie who discovered that Barbie was not able to do the splits past 180º! To make … Read moreAmy’s Birthday Cake
Happy New Year! I seem to have been very slack in keeping this blog updated. I thought I was organised and ready for the onslaught of Christmas but didn’t factor in how busy we would be with 2 end-of-year school commitments AND organising Amy’s birthday party for before Christmas before one of her friends goes … Read moreMenu Plan Week Beginning Mon 4/1/10
What a week! The weather has been awful! So hot! I refused to cook on Friday night so we got a takeaway chicken with chips and salad from the new Chicken shop in Westfield and had the fish fingers on Saturday night. Tonight as well was too hot to cook; 42.5 at Sydney Airport and … Read moreMenu Plan Week Beginning 23/11/09
Another busy week and Amy’s ballet concert yesterday. We were all so proud. At her request, we went to Alice’s, a Malaysian restaurant in Thornleigh. It’s always a popular choice and one I will write about this week. Last week’s Beef Curry was a hit although I was told it could do with extra chilli. … Read moreMenu Plan Week Beginning Mon 16/11/09
Back at last! With Greg at home (and he is still unemployed), the school holidays, sick children, sick parents, trips to Emergency with Sophie and catching up on some craft projects, I’m back to setting my routine. Although I have been writing my plans, we haven’t always been able to follow them and I have … Read moreMenu Plan Week Beginning Mon 9/11/09
