Why do I blog?

I’ve been feeling a little deflated with the blog lately. Not a whole lot of bloggy love.

Yesterday “Popette” made this cute collage heart out of coloured paper, which she then stuck onto some thick watercolour paper to make a Valentine’s day card for both her Daddy and Nanna.

It’s scarey to think that next year she may be heading off to “big school” (as she affectionately calls it). For me, it doesn’t seem that long ago … Continue reading

Birthday celebrations come to an end

Hello Everyone! Happy New Year (I know I’m a bit late), but we’ve had a very busy week at my household so haven’t had time to do much on the blog. We’ve had birthday’s galore this past week. It all started on New Years Eve with yours truly turning 40 (yep, the big 4-0), and … Continue reading
