Not My Kind of Stitching

This is my darling husband's head after a very brief encounter with the garden shed door - no prizes for guessing who won! Due to the copious amounts of blood gushing from his head I called an ambulance - wouldn't you? They arrived, inspected the damage, pronounced him to be fine and then unsuccessfully tried to attach two Steri Strips to his head! I convinced him to visit the doctor that evening just in case... well 6 stitches later! Now all he has to do is come up with a truly dramatic cycling story to go with the injury.

Birthday Month

February is birthday month in our house with birthdays on the 1st, 9th and today as my oldest is now 5! This could be another reason for my lack of blog entries this month. My boys had a joint party on Sunday and in keeping with tradition I made them birthday t-shirts. Usually I use printable iron on transfers. This year I found printable fabric! I'm not sure how they will survive the washing machine but I think they turned out well. They sure did look cute in them.

This is another reason why I love Canberra. We have had a few chilly mornings this week, which have brought out the hot air balloons. I think the wind must be blowing in our direction as this was the view over our house on Thursday morning. The boys tried to yell and wave at them but I don't think they heard us! It sure was a beautiful morning for ballooning.
