Today E was entertaining me on her piano...she is quite a careful piano player...no bashing and clunking...she picks out notes and likes to write music too! We might try piano lessons this year but not sure where we would fit a piano!
And amazingly a pic of Morganne and I at bath time...I have started telling Ben to take photos today...they will most probably all be pretty unflattering but at least there will be photos...Hope your week is going well - Lissy

Unfortunately I will not be teaching or attending this time...I was very loathed to have to say no to Karen but with little Morganne and Evangeline, I decided I could not manage it...Ben will be away, as will mum, so that is my baby sitting out the window...and I am struggling to find anytime at the moment to do anything let alone come up with some fabulous class ideas and prepare them...
Around here it is a case of....KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON....I have had this poster for about a year and need to put it up somewhere I think!
I know Karen will organise a superb retreat again, the other tutors will come up with some excellent classes for you and you will all have a great time! Lissy

Ben is home :) E was very excited...Ben's mum arrives tomorrow and the house is only vaguely clean...I was too tired and it was too hot to do anything today so I guess I shall tackle it in the morning....Lissy
Hot here today again - 38C plus...Ben is due home tonight! YAY! He will get a shock when he sees Morganne although he has been able to look at this blog...So I shall post today's daily photos later - Lissy

and reading to Morganne...And Morganne is now six weeks old...Today was going to be a quiet stay at home day....but that soon went out the window...a friend called to take E out with her little girl for a couple of hours...so I rushed off with M to do the food shopping and then I had a quick look at computers as this one is coming to a grinding halt and I am thinking it will just stop all together soon...it is a few years old so I guess it is a dinosaur now in computer terms...but shall have to see what Ben thinks when he gets home...E is counting the sleeps...only two to go now!
Then this afternoon saw a rush of unexpected but very welcome visitors...my aunt, then my friend Penne....Then E came home and the kids all had a swim ...they were giving their dolls swimming lessons And the air con man turned up and fixed the air con...very relieved about that!...it still only works in part of the house but that will do for now!...and then another friend turned up to see Morganne!
This is E with her new mop this afternoon....slave labour around here...lol...I had to follow her around and mop up the water!E was worn out and fell asleep on the chair so I carried her to bed! M is still not asleep...thanks for ideas for cradle cap...shall give them ago! and that is it for today...Lissy

Plus trying to organise to get the air con fixed before the weather creeps up to 36+C on Thursday and the same is forecast for the long weekend...do not know what we will do if not!
And now heading to bed and hoping for a reasonable night...Lissy

My everyday pics for today....E and I played 'football' outside...she has her own ideas about a football outfit...a football top (it has to have a pony on it) and stripy shorts and also pony knickers she tells me..and football shoes...not sure really where she has all these ideas from...we are not a soccer family...must be from a Maisy book or ABC kids...anyway she is actually fairly athletic and could run and kick the ball well! And Morganne and I spend a lot of time here changing nappies...lol...the basket with supplies is from when I was a baby....I finished the first birthday mini album today too...it is very simple...but at least it is done...
Ben is hopefully getting home on Thursday this week...some help around here with the kids and cooking and so on will be wonderful...I hope you have had a good Sunday - Lissy

My everyday pictures today are...E pulling a face...and Morganne in the capsule...her skin is a lot better but now the cradle cap is bad! I have four days of photos printed for the mini albums now so I had better start it!
Last night Evangeline wrote instructions for the care of Morganne....and they had lots of good night cuddles and kisses!
And look a smile...and look at those chubby cheeks!Hope you have had a good Saturday - Lissy

Not much else happening today...my sister and family popped in for a visit...and that is about it...Lissy
Thursday, January 17, 2008
And she got M smiling once...so this and E joining in the photo shoot is my daily photo for today...I have a couple of acrylic albums from Sharon to start making the 30 Days of Everyday albums for the girls...
Hot here today (about 39C) but not humid and the wind has died down too...we are inside with the air conditioning on...lol...but I have been outside putting washing on the line and it takes about 5 minutes to dry!
So a good day here despite a not so good night...Lissy

E did her own hair this morning... and for some reason she wanted a jumper on...and Morganne sitting by the window this morning...I shall try and do this each day but we shall see how it goes! I think I will make an everyday mini album for each of the girls...with a photo a day for 30 days...maybe a bit ambitious but we shall see...might manage if I keep it really simple!
Not much else happening here today...E did go collecting dinosaur rocks...shall post about that tomorrow maybe...she had a very involved story to go with it!
My sister and family were here for lunch...
It hot here again...39C tomorrow...and it has been very windy...now hopefully Morganne is asleep and I can sleep too - Lissy

E has been practising her diving...lol...she gets ready and then... jumps in
Morganne is 34 days old...her skin is still horrid but colic improving! She can no longer fit into the new born size nappies(up to 5 kg) so I am guessing she has grown! She is giving me a lot of smiles and quite likes to "chat" to me...the first thing E does each morning is give Morganne a kiss (this photo is not too good as I was holding her and trying to take them!)
and E asleep tonight...
Now my turn..I am off to bed as did not have a good night last night as Morganne was up every couple of hours...I am hoping for better things tonight - Lissy
