Miss Muppet's skin is so dry!
She was only overdue by a couple of days, but one thing is for sure, she was 'well baked'!

 ABOVE: her poor wee feet are peeling and cracked in places... we keep putting Bio oil on her!  She's dry in quite a few places, feet, hands, tummy.... luckily only her feet are cracked.

ABOVE: such a cute wee foot.  Hopefully she doesn't have feet like Lacy and Brylee... really long and narrow.  Feet like that are hard to get shoes for,  let me tell you! 
It's a nightmare trying to find shoes for Brylee that's for sure.

ABOVE:  She's such a bright eyed wee girl.  Love her to bits.

Today:  well I'm going to pick Lacy up and the two of us are going for a lovely walk in the Botanic Gardens.
We might even indulge in morning tea at the Cafe' there too... that would be nice.

After that, probably come home and so some housework... or sewing.... or something!


Change of plans... Lacy now wants to go to a mall as she needs a new battery for her laptop.  She's not had a working computer for weeks, so it will be good if we can find a battery for her.
And there's lots of shops in the mall!  lol

ABOVE: Lacy with Keera at Sylvia Park.... we didn't stay long as Keera was unsettled and Lacy couldn't find a battery charger for her laptop... which was a bit of a bugger.
I'm sure we will track one down eventually.

Lacy and babe are at their home and I'm at mine... ready to have some lunch then do some housework.  Yaaaa.. NOT.

MEGA FRUSTRATED.  Just spent almost 2 hours on the phone trying to track down a new power cord/adaptor for Lacy's computer.  Talk about the most frustrating execise ever.  I THINK I've found a place here that has one.  Will go there tomorrow and see if it is indeed the right one.

NO Blondie, I ain't done a bloody thing!  Too busy on the freakin phone.  Grrrrr.

BEE: I did look online thanks Bee... and I rang many different places too... and prices range from about $24.95 to $199 !  I just don't get it!  And it made me so mad.

In fact I'm in a totally foul mood.  Nothing is going right.  And my fringe is too long and it's driving me crazy!

If I don't get some scissors and hack it off it will be a miracle.

I'm SUPPOSED to go to the hairdressers on Tuesday... but I don't think I can go.  Finances are too tight right now.

END OF DAY: a nice morning, followed by a shit afternoon.  I hope the evening is better!
nite nite.

    Have you tried olive oil in the bath? Or special baby oil? Works really well x

  9. Have you looked online chris? I had to get one for my camera and there was one on eBay! Loving all the baby pics and seeing a very smily and happy lacy. it's amazing how much you can change you life around with having the right people supporting you :) I'm (34) raising both my boys on my own (15 and 8) and wouldn't survive without my mum. You're awesome Chris and I'm not the only one who thinks so!!!!! :)

  10. Have you considered marigold cream for skin care. I'm sure you're doing the right thing but maybe that would help too.

    Love all your baby photos.

    You're a good Mum and Grandma

    Just ring a few hairdressers and ask if they can just cut your fringe and what it will cost. My hairdresser just charges me $5.

    We just rubbed baby oil and lotion on Madison's feet. Her's looked just like that. Put on gobs at night with socks and it will clear up quickly....debbie
