My Sister and I made these desserts for Christmas. They were so lovely and colourful I had to take pictures:
a clean house,
crisp white sheets
clothes ironed and folded!
Domesticated, did you say? Oh, yes indeed!!

If you stay in a relationship with someone that you’re not sure you love and just try to make yourself love them, you’ll end up breaking away pieces of yourself, and adding pieces that really aren’t you, and soon, you won’t even recognize yourself anymore.
Life isn’t about finding someone to keep you from being lonely. Life is about loving yourself and living for you. And if you find someone to love you for who you are, then that’s a bonus.
Don’t hold yourself down for someone that you aren’t sure is worth it. You only live once. Don’t waste your time living someone else’s life.
If you really didn’t care then it wouldn’t warrant a Facebook status update. Nothing screams, “I’m not over it,” more than a status update letting everyone know that you *are* over it.
Here it is. A cute purse with diamantes. Jamie got it for me for Christmas. I also got a Tiffany’s necklace. It’s absolutely stunning.

A few photos from the kids trick or treating. Halloween 2011
I’m writing this a whole month LATE. You turned 5 exactly one month ago, but I haven’t had time to sit down and properly write what I’ve wanted to say to you, so I’ve put it off until today.
You are the best kid I could have ever asked for. You have an amazing sense of humour and the best smile ever. Sometimes I think your entire day revolves around making me laugh. Thanks for keeping me smiling.
You’re probably going to think I’m a freak, because of how much I talk about how perfect you are, but I can’t help it. The other night you had a bad dream and woke up crying in the night. After I comforted you, you said, half asleep, “Mummy you’re the best comforter in the world”. I just lied there, staring at you, feeling that you are everything that makes sense to me, and everything that I’ve ever wanted in this world. Though it’s been five quick years, I’ve never ceased to feel this way and I can know that I’ll never cease to believe this. Sleep soundly tonight my little honey.
The morning of your birthday when you woke up the first thing you did was roll over and mutter, “Am I five?” It was such good news when I told you that yes, you were finally FIVE. You had to wait for a couple of weeks before we celebrated your birthday party. But you were patient. You wanted a toystory party, and that’s exactly what you got. I hope you had a fun day. I had so much fun planning it, and you were one big ball of smiles and squeals the whole day.
This last year has been a fun one for you, a crazy one at times, but so much fun. There will always be changes in your life, baby. A lot has changed for us over the past couple of years. I cannot promise consistency and I do not know what the future holds for us. But, I do know that we will always have this love. I never want a day to go by where you question exactly how much I adore everything about you. I met you, my baby girl, earlier in my life than I had planned. I didn’t know I’d have so much growing up to do while you were around. I could say that I’m done. I could promise you that I’m totally matured, but that’d be completely naive. We can grow together.
The second that I held you in my arms and you looked up at us with those big blue eyes I knew nothing else about my life would ever matter as much as the way you fit so perfectly in it. You are forever my first priority and that will never stop being the case. I haven’t been a perfect mother, but I could not possibly be more proud of the way you’re turning out. Sometimes I look at you and my chest hurts with pride. And it’s not just because you’re beautiful, although you are undeniably gorgeous. It’s all your expressions and words and your comprehension and understanding of human nature. Even your obsession with arts and crafts, baked beans and sausages. Every little thing. It’s the way you’ve always went about your life with such perception, such class, compassion and quiet determination that I love. I will always admire your mind. There isn’t a thing about you that doesn’t make my heart happy.
It was in a public bathroom in a busy shopping centre on my lunch break when I first found out that I was going to be a mother. I could never have imagined that terrifying little plus sign would turn out to be the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Thank you for that, Baby Sweetcakes. Thanks for being exactly the way you are. Here’s to 5, and 16 and 21 and 30 and to never settling for anything less than what you deserve. And, you deserve everything.
I love you so much.
The boyfriend likes cute, tight yoga pants. Also, my butt.
Sometimes people are amazing.
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
— Maya Angelou
Shiiitt. I’ll be lifting, and making the sandwiches. LIKE A BOSS!!
Home, in bed, iPod on, AND READING!
You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains. You say that you love the sun, but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines. You say that you love the wind, but you close your windows when wind blows. This is why I am afraid: you say that you love me too.—William Shakespeare
We had the best weekend ever this weekend. We were in floor-time playmode all day. Picnics, fort building, hot chocolates while watching Toy story, staying in jammas, painting, dance parties to Katy Perry videos, googling stuff for your Princess birthday party, braiding Dolly’s hair, playing with Toby… all that lazy Sunday stuff.
You have been so happy with your new glasses. I’m so happy they help you see clearly. And they make you look smart and awesome.
One on one time with you is Mummy’s favourite thing in the whole world. You’re the best kid ever. Exactly 3 weeks till your 5th birthday!!!
Just did a 5 km run, an hour of yoga and 20 minutes of foam rolling. Best two hours of my day today.
Everybody, one day will die, and be forgotten. Act and behave in a way that will make life interesting and fun. Fuck living a mundane predictable life working Monday to Friday in a job you derive no pleasure from; just living life out till you grow old and wither away. Find a passion, form relationships, don’t be afraid to get out there, live your dream, and fuck what everyone else thinks. Trust me its a lot more fun that way.
Don’t pay people out or put people down. Instead just put yourself up and let the haters do their thing. I’d rather be a person that’s hated on, than a person that does the hating. Haters gonna hate!
End of inspirational talk.

You know how sometimes you’re looking for a particular photo and you end up scrolling through heaps of pictures, and you get so distracted by all sorts of thoughts and emotions about all sorts of things and people? Yeah, that.
My daughter just asked me who started the whole universe. I said, maybe it was like magic and everything just happened. Then she goes, seriously mum, someone would have had to invent magic. It doesn’t just invent itself. Ok so my 4 year old just made me look like a fool.
