Right, here's some fun for today:
ABOVE: he was really grumpy yesterday.... his poor bottom was suffering in this heat... and he WILL poop every single nappy! So, we are trying a few things to see what will work for him and keep him comfy.
I'm hoping it's nice enough later on (not too hot) to 'air' his bum in the sun for a while.
I'm sitting in the lounge last night and Steve and Bex are on the couch, already planning baby #2. Apparently it is going to be a girl.... !
They are both nuts. I think I heard the words "marriage license' come up too. Now that would be nice... I'd like MORE of my grandchildren to be 'legitimate' after all.
At the moment we have 11 Grandchildren, and of them, only two were born to parents that were married to each other!
I can dream of another wedding... can't I? *smiles*
NOT impressed with Keera this morning. She woke three - four times in the night... so I had hardly any sleep at all.
I'm up now getting her breakfast, and everyone else is still sound asleep.
Looks like it might be a crappy, overcast day, so definitely not a beach day. *sigh* Edit: it's raining. Heavy mist type rain. Yaaaaa. Will be good for the grass if nothing else.
We are expecting a visit from friends of Bex's today, they are coming up from Hamilton, so that will be lovely for Bex. I am sure she misses all her friends in Hamilton.
IRENA: Ummmm... fairly personal ... I will just say she has chosen to be estranged. And she is well as far as we know.
Stew has just left to take Keera home. I am so tired I am feeling really crabby! I sure couldn't do nights with babies for long now. Must be me age, cos I didn't find it hard at all when I was having all my babes.
LYNDA: I got sick of being treated like shit, so you reap what ya sow. I wasn't feeling NICE when I put that 'word' on the blog. Maybe I will just delete her from the list, like she has deleted us from her life??? Now there's a thought.
I am at the end of my TOLERANCE for certain situations within the family. WE are now going to move on and thoroughly ENJOY AND LOVE being parents/grandparents to everyone who lets us!
Hee hee... some good captions coming through!
Stew, the two kids and I went down to Mission Bay for an ice cream at Movenpik. Usually it is so busy the queue is out the door and down the street... but today:
ABOVE: hardly anyone there! I have to wonder if the new Kiwiyo just down the road has taken some custom off them! I think that is highly likely.
Next a few photos of Bex and Steve's visitors cooling off in the spa, we have turned it down to 26 degrees Celsius... lovely!
ABOVE: Nicky... she really loved the cool water. She's 28 weeks along, baby due in April. Poor thing has to carry over the entire summer.
ABOVE: Nicky again... not sure what that face was about! I kept kinda hoping she would fall in... it would have been... funny! And choice blog fodder. But, I am also happy to say she didn't! She is no doubt happy about that too. *smiles*
As soon as Bex comes out of her room, (she's feeding Dante) I will get a photo of her hair.
ABOVE: Bodhi's hand is now in a splint overnight for the next 3 months to try and stretch the tendons of his bent finger. If that is not successful he will have a little operation to fix it. Hopefully that will not be necessary.
Did I mention the sun decided to come out with a vengence? It's freaking hot now. Stinking, muggy... HOT.
I got tired of waiting for Bex to come out of her room so I could take a photo of her hair .... so I fell asleep.... for hmmmm... seems about 2 hours! I missed dinner even. Oh well... I WAS a bit tired. lol
ABOVE: there ya go! Bex and her new haircut. Really, all we both got done was a re-colour! But it still feels great to be pampered for a little while and have someone else do your hair eh? *smiles* She got a bit sunburnt today while sitting outside talking with her visitors. I am going to try and get a little bit of a tan tomorrow cos I have not been in the sun AT ALL!
FEELING GOOD! Going to go look at the chaos that is my garage again...
End of Day: well I think I will leave the garage until tomorrow! Stew has just gone to bed, poor bugger has work in the morning.
As for me, two more weeks with B & G then they go back to school. I am ready for that to happen!
