Yesterday I did a whole blog post on how badly it sucks to be back at work after maternity leave! I was exceptionally proud that I had actually done another post!

And then, just like my blackberry connection it dissappeared! There was an absolute failure to communicate in my life yesterday. and it sucked. MASSIVE.SWEATY.HAIRY.OLD.WRINKLED.DIRTY.DONKEY.BALLS!

Which, FYI, was the name of said VANISHING blog post and FYI again, I did press publish and I viewed it on my site.

So anyway, about my day yesterday! Crap it was hard. It was a whole load harder, emotionally, than I expected. But it did go quicker than I thought and my MIL managed alot better than I thought, and my child still regconised me when I got home. BUT MAN IT WAS CRAP HARD and it sucked so so bad. I wasnt ready to leave her yet.

However this morning was easier and such is life.

Work is great, its a whole lot better since my promotion ( so far) but that is for another time ( actually meant for today – stupid vanishing post)

And I am dying to tell you about Oli, but its not my place to ,so if his mother doesnt do it soon, I may be forced to.

Well et me toodle off and go waste some more time looking and dreaming about the iPhone online *sigh*

Bonjoir, bye, totsien,haba whatever….or whatever the appropriate sign of is




For some reason my wordpress is being spazz. Sorry about that, i will get the technician towork on it once her Oli is bigger!

Bits and Bobs

One week in and I am already a bad blogger, but let me update you on my mundane life and indulged myself in getting another post up.

Mostly last week was “taken” up by sleep training. My baby daughter has somehow gotten it into her head the not sleep during the day is awesome. I think it pretty much sucks, because 1) I have no IDEA how to entertain a 8-11 week old baby and 2) Mama needs a break!

So with alot of screaming, wild kicking and “tantrums”, baby girl EVENTUALLY figured out that a 10 am nap for 2 hours doesnt suck so bad.I had a good day Wednesday to Friday, but I guess I will be able to claim victory by the end of next week , after I have maintained a steady routine her. Trust me , she is a sneaky one, and with one coo and a bat of an eyelid, she can easily claim victory over me!

I am also having big issues with leaky Pampers, almost every night my baby wakes up damp, I am now trying out a few other brands (tg for sample packs) to see how they work. Baby girl has also had a nappy rash that seems to flare every now and then, i am yet to find a cream that will treat it and heal it completely, any suggestions?

In other news i have had an all round good weekend, went to watch rugby at Loftus and took Josh along for the first time, his face was priceless when he walked into the stadium, but by half time he was so bored and annoying that I could have sold him for a bag of biltong. We also had his last soccer tournament for the season, which meansno  more running around like headless chickens twice a week.  Although I will say soccer has been one of the best things to happen for him and i will miss his enthusiasm, but thats another blog post alone.

I will finish off with things I learnt this week:

– Sleep training is hard, for both your mind and soul

– I love being home with baby girl, but I am really starting to miss work

– A piece of cake always taste better when you having it with a friend

– My husband is an annoying shit, but i love him vely vely much

– My dog is the dumbest creature i have ever known or possibly will know

– My bf is a very brave chick – she write exams with a newborn

– I am very very excited to meet Ollie

– I love love love watching rugby

-I hate hate hate watching soccer, would rather hammer nails in my head.

I hope you had a great weekened , and that a better week is heading for you!

Cheers, bye, chow, totsiens or whatever the appropriate sign off is……







3rd Time Lucky

* i had a good thing going here then i lost the post!

** Note to self remeber to connect internet before publishing

Back to where i was…….

I used to blog, I tried it a few times, but I usually got bored or something came along and “screwed” it up, EG:I tried the single abandoned mom blog and then I met my husband and THEN I tried the newly wed blog, but the first year wasnt ans “picture perfect” as I thought and gave it up for a bad joke, simply because I was too polite to blog about it.

So now I am trying the me angle. I was always so pedantic about blogging content ( whatever that may be) that i was over thinking my blog posts and making them so freaking boring, that even I got bored with the whole idea. So yes you will no see numerous photos of my personal zoo, you will hear about what i did on my very lazy sunday morning and i will talk endlessy about my life.

Why? because that is me, my kids, my husband and the wonderful people in my life make me, well me. And i actually like me! And frankly I think thats is quite interesting. I might even write a book one all about me!

But….i promise not to be too boring, and i might even attempt an interesting post about poo nappies vs sleep training or something equally crappy and not boring.

but i ask only two things, leave a comment becasue it will make me look less borinh on the www and read my about page, by doing that you will understand why my grammar sucks on such a grand scale.

Sweet dreams, cheers, adios, chow or whatever the approriate sign off is….
