It's Now The Mash. A Room With A View.

It's now the monster mash...

 This can only mean one thing. No Chububby isn't on solids yet but it's just a matter of weeks so I'm stock piling frozen mashed food. This is mango, we had more than can be consumed in the next few days so I mashed some for the baby.

I used to think that the toilet on level 9 of Fisher Library at Sydney University had the best view but I was wrong.

View from the Parent's Room at Westfield Bondi Junction. 

It's so easy to get distracted looking at the window and forget what you're there for. I like the padded change mats too but I still use my own. I like a posh parent's room.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. High Tea. Happy Second Birthday, Blog!

I put the Christmas tree up last Friday. Here is Bubby attempting to put the star on top of the tree, unsuccessfully. I really didn't realise how tall the tree was when I bought it. I got it from a Christmas warehouse place and it wasn't the biggest tree there so it looked 'small' in comparison. We still haven't finished decorating it but it's only November. I want to take Bubby shopping so he can choose some Christmas tree decorations.

Today, I hosted a High Tea. It's amazing how fancy a sandwich becomes when you take off the crust. The hydrangeas are from the garden.

The blog turned 2 on the 21st of November. I have been meaning to write an entry but have been too busy. I meant to update the blog layout and finally add an About Me but that will have to wait. All I can say is the blog has once again been living up to its name.

Rain Rain Go Away

I'm a bit over this weather. I keep checking tomorrow's weather forecast hoping that it will change to something not so gloomy. Being stuck indoors on my own with two kids is doing my head in.

At least I don't have to water the garden.

It's a good day for watching a movie.

Bubby has been really difficult to put to bed of a night lately. *Sigh* I can't for hubby to be back home as the mega tantrum is taking a lot out of me.

I Am a Changed Person.

Now that all the leftover cake and dessert from my birthday party and chocolates from Halloween have been consumed, I can now start eating healthily. I have come to accept that exercise alone will not get me back my pre-baby body, especially since I don't actually do any.

This is what I had yesterday for lunch
 Salad consisting of asparagus, lettuce, baby kale, baby spinach, rocket, mixed nuts, smoked salmon and a pinch of parmesan. 

Today I ate a little bit more as yesterday's lunch only filled me up for a couple of hours.
Smoked salmon, cream cheese, baby kale, baby spinach and rocket sandwich and roast pumpkin.

Two big tablespoons of yoghurt and a handful of strawberries, grapes and blueberries.

Yes there's a bit of cheese and full fat yoghurt (but goodness it tasted so good) but I hope this is what people call 'in moderation'. After all, I could be having a cookies n cream ice cream.

I might exercise or I might just take a nap. I'm not that much of a changed person.

26th Birthday Ten Years On.

Another year, another 26th birthday. This year's theme was The Sound of Music and I had a great time! I'll let the photos do the talking.

The invites. I also wrote a telegram style message on the back.
'I have confidence in me'/'The poor didn't want this one'. My brother asked me where I got my outfit from. They're clothes I already owned. I think I need to revamp my wardrobe!  

Brown paper packages tied up with string.

My niece and soon to be goddaughter in an outfit her mum made. So cute!

My brother the paparazzi. My sister in law also made his outfit. I wish I could sew or I wish she had more time to sew for me.

Brown paper packages tied up with string. Also sleigh bells. There were also whistles and pine cones and a frog.

Schnitzel with noodles (noodles inside rice paper roll), pink lemonade, crisp apple strudel, frankfurts (not Austrian but close enough geographically). Not close in geography are the dim sums. Well they're easy to cook.

An unexpected visitor.


A pop up Sound of Music book to add to my collection of pop up books.

I was very much spoilt :)
