I'm just SO HAPPY to have Miss Muppet here!
It was such a long time since we had seen her, and I thought it would be even longer before we would again.

So to have her here is just so neat.  Yes, I'm fairly busy with the house and so on, but hell... I will always fit my grandkids in, if I am able.

Yesterday at Steve and Bex's we had 5 of our grandkids together... so neat!
OK, Brylee and Griffin are our 'kids', but they are our grandkids too... so they count.  *smiles*

 ABOVE:  Wee Archer smiling at Griffin. Funny how so many babies and little kids love Griffin.

 ABOVE: Griffin getting a 'hi 5' from Archer... sorta!  Dante and Keera were playing with the trains.
ABOVE:  The two littlies hugging goodbye as we left.  Don't ask me what the hell Griffin was doing!  He's a dick.

Today?  I'm sure Keera and I will find something to do.  I would like to get some prep work done on the little wall hanging, but I will do that while Keera has her midday nap.

So, I'm off to get a load of washing on... then play with Keera.


1.30 pm:  Well we have not actually been playing.
Keera had a dreadful night, coughing heaps and getting upset.
So we went to the Dr at 10 am, and he was concerned about her chest so we ended up at Middlemore Hospital having a chest x-ray.

We will find out the results at the end of the week, but I was told the Dr at the hospital had looked at her x rays,  and was happy for her to come home.

We have asthma medication that Lacy gave us, so hopefully it works tonight.  

When we got home, Keera had some lunch and is now having a nap.  

6.34 pm:  what do ya do when your teenager girl plugs herself into her music EVERY FUCKING NIGHT and won't answer when you call for her?  When you scream at the top of your lungs that her dinner is ready?

Well eventually you get so mad you storm into her room with a glass full of water and tip it over her head.  YEP.   I'm THAT sort of mother.

Well after some thought, I talked to Miss Brylee about EAR PHONES.  And we have come to an agreement.  She will NOT wear them between 6.15 pm and 7 pm in the evening.  That way I can call her to dinner (or whatever) and she WILL hear me.
Let's see if that works... *smiles*

I'd hate to have to tip a BUCKET FULL of water over her next time.  lol

End of Day: I didn't get much done today, Miss Muppet is fairly talkative!  And wanted to sit and play with me all afternoon too.  It was lovely. 
nite nite


  1. Gorgeous photos Chris - and lovely to see Dante and Keera playing together again :)

    Have a lovely day with Keera.

  2. we rushed Corby to the hospital when he was 2 1/2 with a worrying chest. It turned out he had very severe asthma and a partially collapsed lung!!.... we had no idea and were horrified obvi. He was in the hospital for 5 nights, with an oxygen mask etc. You can't be too careful x

    Geeees baby Muppet, next year let's try keep doctor and hospital visits to a minimum kk xx love from Mummy

  4. poor miss muppet hope she feeling better after her snooze and hope grandma got a rest too

  5. Aaaarggghhh teenage girls! Tell her what time dinner will be, pop your head into her room when it is ready then just leave it on the table. If she turns up - fine, if she takes too long it will be cold and if she misses dinner she goes hungry or reheats dinner.

  6. I didn't have earphones. So my whole family had to listen to Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Guns n Roses and Bon Jovi for a LONG TIME

    1. I had more sedate musical tastes, but there is this bit in Paul Simon's Graceland album where even now, I swear I can hear my dad coming up the stairs to my bedroom (and I haven't lived with him for 18 years, and no longer have stairs in the house...). Nice compromise Chris! hope it works. Penny xo

    2. PS: hope Keera has a better night tonight!

    3. You are so me!!!! Bon Jovi etc then onto Lynard Skynard & creedence Clearwater Revival with AC/DC & Cold Chisel chasers. Not to mention Dance Exponents, Hello Sailor & Shona Laing for some angst.

  7. My goodness those Grandbabies are getting big. Keera is gorgeous! They're all gorgeous. Not surprising considering their genes:-) xx

  8. I just text Melissa if she doesn't respond lol. Usually works :)
