I get a sleep in. It is brilliant.  The fellas get up and play and I just sleep.  I wake up around 9am and Noah brings me in a cup of tea and I fall back asleep until 10am.  I cannot believe it.  It feels strange not to be achingly ...

It is a footy morning. Woody plays pirates in the lounge room loudly and happily. I hear the pirates say to each other, 'I really appreciate your help'. It would seem, in our house, we have very well mannered pirates. I get up late and Woody has been ...

... as I thought I might be, but the view is distractingly beautiful. And, again, I very almost head home.  But I don't. I head to Australia Fair as I hear they may have some more jars in.  They have 3. Next I head home. I am home for half an hour ...

I reluctantly wake up this morning. I stayed up way too late last night (and Noah stayed up longer!).  Mum and I have agreed we are going to do the 30-day shred at 7.30am every day.  Eeeek.  We have also agreed that today we are stepping ...

Woody wakes early again. We may have to consider a later bedtime or just wearing him more in the day.   I think we will go with the latter. So Noah and Woody watch some TV and played cubby house and picnics and I do a bit of snoozing. I get up ...

Saturday is footy day. We are up early and ready to go and wake the Mothership 10 minutes before we have to be out the door.  She is pretty unimpressed with such short notice, but manages to rustle up a pair of high heels to wear to footy... Woody ...

Woody sleeps in his own bed most of the night, so we all generally have a better night's sleep super. He wakes in the night hungry – which is unsurprising given he has not eaten much for days.  But he does not have a raging temperature so we ...

We wake early, but not as early as the Mothership who is bright eyed and bushy tailed and dressed at 6.30am. Aaaargh.   This is going to take some getting used to.  The early morning is not my friend. We are on the road by about 7.15am ...
