Dear TV Companies

Dear TV companies (yes I’m talking to you TVNZ, TV3, Sky etc.) Can you please stop playing your advertisements so much louder than the shows they’re interrupting? I normally don’t mind ads, but there are those that are so loud they make my baby sitr and me change channels straight away. Or I mute them.…

Two weeks to go!

In less than 14 days I’m going to be a mother of two. That’s scary. I’ve been wondering whether I’m ready to be a mum again. Things with Abby were just getting to the point where I could start being myself again: wearing prepregnancy clothes; having proper sleep; having time and energy to do things…

Four weeks to go!

Only four weeks to go until Abby’s little brother is due! We’ve decided that we’ll let things progress naturally and if nothing happens by 39 and a half weeks then it’ll most likely be an elective caesarian. Since the beginning of this pregnancy, I can’t help but make comparisons with when I was pregnant with…

Fine then!

You know you’re having a bad day when you get a parking fine for thinking you have twice the amount of time you actually have. Thanks Kilbirnie – how are we supposed to shop at your shops when 30 minutes is the maximum? Ok, so I should really just walk there from my house but…

You are second in the queue

Last night I dreamt that we were watching a movie that became a reality that I was part of. I seem to have lots of these types of dreams. The movie was set in a hotel restaurant, and involved a man being told he’d have to launch an attack on India (or something to do…

Happy Tiring New Year

Welcome to 2011. Wow, another year gone huh. And I’m tired. Are you tired? It’s funny how all this holidaying and doing nothing makes you tired. The weather probably has something to do with that too. We spent our Christmas in Palmerston North this year visiting the husband’s family there. It was a busy day,…

Abby Update at 13 Months

So this post is a couple of days early but I am not intending to do anything online for a few days while we are celebrating Christmas and the summer with our extended family. I can’t believe this is Abby’s second Christmas! At least this year she’s not a newborn so will be able to…

It’s a boy!

Yes, there will be a little brother for Abby to play with next year. Hooray – one of each! I had my 20 week scan today (although I’m actually 19 weeks 3 days). Baby was being difficult to scan because he kept moving. He’s quite an active fellow, more so than I remember Abby being…

I blame the Internet

So this is what happens when you forget about your hotdogs. Ok, to be fair, I was letting them simmer because the husband was going to be late for dinner (yes, this is dinner tonight). I put the lid on because I thought it would keep them nicer for longer. That was the mistake. The…
