Sportacus in the house!


My youngest is completely enamoured with Sportacus the character from the TV show called Lazy Town, which hails from Iceland of all places! As a reward for all his stickers on his toilet reward chart (yes we are tackling toilet training) he got this very cool Sportacus suit. He loves dressing up and he decided to wear the hat and goggles to the markets last week - he sure did look cute with the curls sticking out from under the hat. He won't let us have his hair cut, but that's another story. This is him doing his best Sportacus pose.

The Vanishing Boy!

This is just so strange that I had to take a photo of it. My eldest has taken to laying out his clothes, as above, when he's getting undressed for a bath. We have no idea why. I walked into his room and saw this! It reminded me of the Wizard of Oz when the Wicked Witch of West melts.

Ahhh Poppies

Spring has well... sprung in Canberra. Yesterday was so warm and the outside so inviting the perfect start to Floriade - our annual tulip festival. Today is a cold, rainy and very windy but at least we've had a taste of what's to come. I can't help but take photos of flowers and this bunch I bought from our local farmers market at EPIC. I go there Saturday mornings with my beautiful friend K (Happy Birthday for tomorrow). There are so many beautiful flowers out at the moment and if I've come under budget with my produce shopping then I buy myself a bunch.

Quilt Project - Take Eight - Just Missing a Cat

I thought I'd include this picture that shows I've finally got around to putting the binding on my quilt. When I looked at it it reminded me of many other pictures of quilts in sewing machines that always seem to have a cat lurking nearby. Now it's time to do a little hand sewing... sigh!
