New Billy Mac hoodies!

We got our new hoodies for Byron and Amelia from on Friday!
Amelia's has her name across the back...its stunning! And Byron has a new light blue combi hoody but he thinks its a school bus! He loves it!
Photographing a new skirt I made this week! This young heifer is in the paddock next to our house where there has been alot of mating action going on recently! (piggy back rides Byron tells us!) She showed many signs of being on heat! One being how inquisative she was about this skirt! Perhaps she would like one! Picture that!!! All 80 of these heifers in the paddock with twirly skirts on! hahahahahahaha

Relationships and the full moon

Gee wizz...sometimes relationships with the opposite sex can be sooooo challenging! We have had such a tough week and when I look up at the night sky I realise its a full moon. This does cause everyone to go nuts.... I try and be normal and stay calm but MAN it can have a strong force sometimes!
Does anyone else agree with these strange changes the moon can make to us? What does it do to you or how does it effect your household?
I have always noticed it with my children...first I thought the waking during the full moon was because of the bright light shining in but after installing blockout blinds I discovered its not  or choose not to hear meits more than that! What is it...I had this thought once that it could be to do with the water as it seems to pull the tide out somewhat and our bodies are a majority water! silly maybe but sometimes I look to science to proove a fact!
Any way for two days we argued about nothing in particular.....very similar to PMT time but its not! Now we are back in total love again! Relationships are the weirdest thing!
Thank god I have found some one who 'I think' accepts that this is all a part of life and growing old together aven though he doesnt say it (as hes the opposite sex and they dont seem to be to flash at expressing verbally)
Anyway this little hiccup has lead me to think about making some positive changes...first try to take on the Monks philosophy and try not to yell! I find it a tough one as i get frustrated when the kids and Brett dont hear me but I am going to try really hard!
Please post your ideas on this!

A Lillie Bug: Mums & Bubs Market - Goodwood SA

A Lillie Bug: Mums & Bubs Market - Goodwood SA

Mums & Bubs Market - Goodwood SA

Yesterday I took the kids and mother in law to check out this market I had heard all about. And it was really good. People are selling handmade and second hand chidrens wares. I got some great wooden puzzles for Byron and a beautiful crotchet beanie for Amelia that she wont keep on!
I would love to sew enough outfits etc to be a part of this market and join the other sellers....but I think my made it store is keeping me busy enough...if I do much more I might need to knock the M off the end of WAHM and that is not the idea of working from home! Maybe sometime in the future!
