welcome to my blog that contains little bits of what goes on in my world. I am mama to Fay and Lily, wife to Ian and a crafter. I love my life even with the bipolar, adhd and the new countries we move to - currently Barcelona, Spain. Click to email me
i love my girls - they are both so different and yet so the same. in one breath they make me love them more and in the next want to run screaming... i think thats the thing about being parents - your heart and mind are pulled into so many pieces. If an adult pulled some of the crap that children pulled, the human species would die becuase we'd kill the adults...
anyways... that's the last few days in my house - Ians got Bronchitis with pneumonia - waiting to see what the chest xrays say. but hes also on my short fuse - what is it with men & being ill. when i had that awful dose of pneumonia last spring and now with this bloody ear infection, i still have to pull it all together to get through the day.. hump!
mine is about how i promised 2009 would be the year i learnt to bake properly and the photo is of my bagel attempt 4. attempt 5 was better - nearly perfect but they all got eaten before photos got taken. a domestic goddess i am not but baking seems very calming - maybe its all that kneading of the bread being therapeutic?
here's my day so far:
Fay at 7:45
and fay 10 mins later
yes today was crazy hair day at school. i did notice this morning, lot of girls did the multi pigtail deal but none did the backcombing and colour spray aswell. i think my child has a touch of the excessive - and thats with me bargaining her down from a full rainbow mohawk!!
and i found these photos at the weekend while trying to sort out some scrapping.. so I had to get some of Lily in the same outfit (one of the few we kept from Fays early years) as she is the same age now... they are definitely sisters!
so i am slowly getting back into normality - this infection and illness is wiping me. I hope you are all well and happy.
technique: I cut up the tranparency to make it fit the picture and layout i had in my head. I used the KI Gloo to stick it down and the sharpie to adding the date and any extra dots needed to link the butterflies.
