I was wrong Mummy

With the kitten tucked under one arm Trelise said to me "the cat doesn't need his teeth brushed"

Yes she did use her own toothbrush - thankfully not mine!

Wordful Wednesday

Yesterday I went into my kitchen and this made me scream!

What's wrong with a little margarine? Nothing as long as I'm the one using it. If you are wondering what happens when the Pea's get it. Here you go!

Don't you just love the margarine face mask that Madeleine is sporting! Two hair washing later and we still have a margarine shine going on!

For those of you that want a hand close up - here you go!
The damage of course wasn't limited to my little monkeys. My couch took a bit of a hit.

and of course the floor

and there was a bit of addition to the current M and J artwork on display in the lounge!

Sadly for me I think it's genetic - remember this post?

Wordful Wednesday


You would think I would be better at hiding all pens in my house.

Sadly I'm not

Oliver Update

It's been ages since I posted and my only excuse is a bit of sickness and the end of winter.

I'm back doing things around the house and it feels fabulous! I've got one more thing to do in our front garden and then I'll post pictures of it.

Our building work is coming along. We have got plans back from the architect and have had a builder price them. The price came back well under what were anticipated so we have started the consent process today. It should take about 20 working days and then we can start building.

Trelise is really enjoying Kindy and has been desperate to get there everyday which makes a nice change. I think it has something to do with the tree that is blossoming in the garden - she is really into plants and flowers. We have been working on her speech after a consulation with a speech therapist. I've seen some changes but I'm not totally convinced on progress. We are still to be evaluated by the public system here and that should be coming up soon so I'm looking forward to hearing what they will say.

Madeleine and Juliette are currently sick for really the first time this winter so I can't really complain. They had a big developmental test last week and it didn't go very well. I'm guessing the report won't really tell us much. At least it was clear to the therapist that they were capable of things just refusing to perform.

Wayne's got his boat back from being serviced and he is very pleased to have his baby home. He is currently building a man cave in the back garden. I went to check it out this morning and I'm a little concerned at the size of it. I'm thinking he might be planning to build a seperate house for himself to live in the garden! Sometimes I wouldn't blame him!!!

Our newest member of our household Morimoto is settling in well. It's strange having a kitten in the house again and I'll be pleased when those little kitten teeth fall out. He likes to bite your feet as you are walking along. He doesn't seem to be fazed with being stepped on! He is good with the dogs and spends a bit of time driving Carlos crazy by darting out of his range. It would be funny but the dogs persistent barking drives me bonkers!
