This week I am extremely grateful for a wonderful husband who sees when I am stressed and worried and who knows really well how to distract me. On the weekend Hip Daddy started several (long overdue) renovations projects in the house, he took us all to Ikea for some renovation inspiration (Yay for $1 meatballs and chips!), he bought the kids a rabbit hutch and [read more]
Another week, another injury… Just one day after a successful start at kindy our accident prone miss Sybbie made another trip to the ER with a broken pinkie, I guess at least the hospital knows we are home from our holiday!

I can’t believe this little treasure is one [read more]
As a child visiting Disneyland Paris was one of my biggest dreams, so to be able to enjoy the magic of Disney with my own little ones is extra special for me. Their beaming smiles, their beautiful eyes big with wonder, their excited voices and happy squeals, it was quite the expense for a family of seven but it was totally worth it. We were so lucky with [read more]
After two wonderful weeks our time at the beach house has come to and end, we sure will miss this beautiful place. Who wouldn’t love lazy breakfasts in the morning, yummy BBQ dinners and sunsets at the beach? My brother dropped by every few days for a cuppa or a dinner, it feels so good being near family again (and even the Tooth Fairy knew where to find us!).
