This and That

As it turns out, Daddies are better kite flyers than Mummies around here. It helps when you have the kite 'bones' inserted the right way round apparently.

Unfortunately the weekend degenerated from here. Both kids have had colds since the 23rd August. Now, snotty noses are bad enough ... but both of them also got diarrhoea which is not something you want to deal with in the middle of the night with a nearly 3 1/2 year old who readily pukes at the smell of his own ... er .. business at the best of times.

DD had it for a short time, but DS still has it 5 days later. So, we're off to the Dr. Not sure what he can do but it makes me feel better. I am soooo sick of it. And the colds are still here too.

On a happier note, I did manage to weed and rotary hoe my garden and now I'm happily plotting out what I'm going to plant.

We have 4 family birthdays this month but I've got it mostly sorted. Just got to finish off a mini album for SIL and post it off. DS is getting a train theme party and as of this morning I am the proud owner of a Wilton train cake pan courtesy of Millys. So that should make my life a bit easier. No chain saw cakes this year. Not sure what I'll do with it after this birthday but I know a number of other little boys who's mothers may like to borrow it. Maybe DH would like a train cake too.

Now - I've been PIFfed by Janine. So here's the deal possums. I will send a gift (something handmade or something bought) to 3 random people who leave a comment on my blog. The only thing you have to do in return is “pay it forward” by making the same promise on your blog or some other form. So, if you like this idea and a bit of ‘happy mail’, please leave a comment on my blog!

Aside: Garsh - I hope there are still people around who haven't been piffed... if you want to opt out of it, let me know :)


  1. oh I hope the kids feel better soon. Poor mummy at having to deal with that. Wow, interesting with kite flying and oh er at the train tin. I can't wait to see your cake.

  2. Glad to see clever old Daddy managed to get the kite flying ;-)

    I'm sorry to hear the kids are sick. I hope they get better quickly.

    Don't enter me into the PIF draw as I've already been PIFFED twice ;-)

  3. Oh dear poor you and poor kids! Hope your boy gets better very soon!
    Hmm who says only boys like trains, that's such a cool tin I want a pink/purple one with yellow flowerwheels and funky pressies Pleeeze!

  4. goodness. i hope everyone is well again soon. that sounds awful.

    it's so odd to read about you planning your garden when mine (my little potted garden) is nearing its end.

  5. Penny, I forgot to give you my kite flying advice in your last post about kites... it REALLY helps if you say to the kite, "Up, Kite, Up" while launching it!

    Can't wait to see the cake!

    Since I'm still such a new blogger... what does PIF stand for?

  6. I hope that your children are better by now and I'm happy NOT to be picked :-)
