Mind The Gap!

Another long bloggy absence! I've officially sucked at this this year! Sorry.

Things have been kind of hectic this week as Kendo has been away for work so I've been flying solo at home with the munchkins......... what's that thing you can see there? That'd be the end of my tether!

I had a few days off work this week as it was the start of the school holidays for Grace on Tuesday. Trying to keep two small people occupied even for three days has been a complete and total PITA! Total Kudos to the SAHMs that do this day in day out.

On Thursday I promised painting for the kids (against my better judgement and the ardent advice of Miss Louise).


The kids made a mess, but had good fun in the process. Although I have to say....washable paint? My arse! Here's their handiwork anyway.


It did make me laugh when I spotted this pic on Louise's blog - we might be a mountain range apart, but things are just the same over th'pennines it seems ;)

Friday was Egg's last day of playschool before the summer, which can only mean one thing - PARTY TIME and PUPPET SHOW TIME (okay, technically that's two things). He had a total blast, showing off all his groovy dance moves, and sat nicely for the presentations. I couldn't get over just how big he looked. Not really a baby any more. :(


Excuse the black oval - I don't mind photos of our kids being on here (obviously) but as I don't have permission from this young lady's parents to post her photo on t'internet then you don't get to see her.

Absolutely the biggest news of the week though, is this:

Mind The Gap

Miss Grace lost her first tooth!!! It's been wobbling like mad for ages and yesterday it finally got to the point where she was bordering on swallowing the thing so she let me pop it right out of there with a tissue. Of course the Toothfairy paid a visit last night so she has her first shiny pound coin to start saving up with (she's decided to save for something biggish rather than spending the toothfairy loot as it comes). She's already got 3 other wobbly ones so we the Toothfairy will be skint in no time. I don't think her gap will last long though. She's already got both adult teeth at the front (bottom) coming through, you can just about see them on the photo. So she won't have to put up with Grandad's renditions of "All I want for Christmas is me too front teeth" for long!

Do you like the new look Cookie by the way? Thanks for Rach's post here about her new look I decided a change was in order and one of Zoe's "Blog in a box" kits from Sweet Shoppe Designs was just what I needed as I didn't have the time or the energy to me whipping up blog banners and side bar banners (maybe next time?).

That said, it did take me two nights to finally manage to get a third column added again (I've had one for so long now I didn't want to do without!). All done now though, I just have to work out why the post separators aren't working. Damn HTML. Grrrrrrr.

Right, that's me for now. Promise to do better (as always).

Nice to see you back! Love the new blog design, very - spotty!

Well done to Miss Grace on the tooth front - C spends hours wobbing them as soon as they start to move!

Loving the new look hun, they're fab aren't they! I can't get the page separators either - must try to sort that out at some point.

I'm expecting a visit from the tooth fairy to Charl soon - both her bottom 2 teeth are wobbly and both her 2nd teeth have popped through - won't be long!
