Update on mum

The news is heartbreaking…mums cancer has spread to her abdomen and is causing ascites – the irritation of the cancer causes fluid which is building up uncontrollably and causing swelling. She had surgery this afternoon to drain it…but that’s it…no more chemo, no more trying to stop this thing. It’s now time to rest, admit […]


Cancer sucks

As many of you know, my mum is suffering from pancreatic cancer. She was given a life expectancy of 3-6 months and has been fighting this battle for the past 30 months. Although the tumour has been behaving itself, not growing and allowing my mum to have a great quality of life with chemotherapy – […]


Mum’s Group

Where’s Wally Nicola? Nicola spent the day hanging out with her friends at mum’s group. One boy in particular took a bit of a fancy to her – holding her hand and turning his head to say ‘Hello’… So darn cute – seemed like only yesterday Luca was on that same mat with his ‘girlfriends’. […]


Santino’s Christening

A special day for our lovely little nephew, Santino. We started the day at Peter and Lisa’s place so that Dave and Linda, the godparents, could do the traditional ‘dressing’ of the baby. It was steaming hot, humid and Santino wasn’t too impressed with all the attention and fussing at first but after a few cuddles […]

2 months old

Wow – the months are rolling by and she’s getting bigger and brighter than a little star. She’s started smiling at us and slowly ‘waking’ up to her surroundings. She’s a blessing and we love her dearly. She’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of, a little miss to spoil with butterflies and bows and to open […]


Pass the glue…

No – the glue is not for me to get high off…we’re PG over here… Luca, Nicola and I had a great day playing with a box of crafty stuff which I picked up from Kmart for $11. It contained bits and bobs of everything – wrapping paper, glitter, sequins, styrofoam and fluffy balls (which […]

My Britney Spears moment….

I’ve have officially lost my self confidence and what better way to make it further go to shit than to get a dodgy haircut. I love the colour – don’t get me wrong – but my hairdresser went a bit nuts with her new scissors. Possibly also venting out her frustration with her bitchy colleagues […]


My obsession with Hello Kitty continues….

Ok – so I’m 34 and love Hello Kitty – so kill me. I’ve got a daughter now so I can hold my head high when I buy this backpack or perhaps the pencil case…OMG….I can’t control myself. Go and check out the Sanrio store - it has some great stuff for the young at heart. […]


Child Development – The Wonder Weeks

Dutch doctors Frans Plooj & Dr Hetty van de Rijt came up with the term ‘wonder weeks’ to describe the mental developmental leaps babies experience in their first 20 months of life. These leaps occur at 10 specific times, and Piloj and van de Rijt found that the leaps they were related to brain and […]
