I was pondering on 'stuff' yesterday.
Stuff that made me sad. And grumpy.
Then ... much later in the day I was doing a little sewing and I had one of those... "THE PENNY DROPS" moments.
I have come to the realisation that apples do not fall that far from the genetic tree.

Sewing yesterday, I finished this little mug rug:
ABOVE: I think the little 'pocket' will be handy for a tissue/serviette. Steve thinks it would be handy for beer bottle caps. MEN!
I'm now trying to think of something else I could make that would incorporate a pocket, maybe a placemat?
Kelly and Rena are visiting, and I took a few photos yesterday:
ABOVE: Kelly straightened Bex's hair, then mine.
ABOVE: Rena in the 'naughty corner' ... put there by Lacy, for running in the house.
ABOVE: Miss Keera getting into mischief... she's on the move and we have to watch her all the time now.
ABOVE: Oh Dear, Dante didn't know his Aunty Kelly! That look screams: "Help me Mum!". *smiles*
ABOVE: Kelly looking decidedly puffy. She had her eyelashes tinted and had a bad reaction to the creme. Bugger!
Today: hmmmm.... it's supposed to be a wet, wet day. So maybe we will go out to a mall? Not sure yet.
Have to wait for Lacy to come back and pick up her baby first!
WOW! I was up at 6am to give Keera a bottle, then I popped her back in her cot and... she slept until 9.30! So, we got a proper sleep in.
I looked in the mirror this morning and I can ALMOST see my collarbones! AND I got into a winter dress, and it fell like a dress instead of a tunic.
It is long! So... today I am feeling much happier with myself.
I know there will be moments that I still feel sad/angry about certain situations, but on a whole... my FAMILY & FRIENDS ROCK.
NICOLE: Now that's a good idea!
Well... the foul weather has finally hit. Wild wind and rain... perfect Sunday weather to stay indoors and enjoy doing nothing.
ABOVE: everyone is happier today.
ABOVE: Steve and Bex keep trying to get Dante to accept formula. So far, nothing has worked.
Once he does take formula, Bex wants to get a part time job. But, Dante has other ideas!
ABOVE: 4 more mug rugs finished. I'm probably going to make some with the pockets now.
CLEO: thanks for the advice. I don't know how to transition an infant to a bottle ... having breast fed all mine except Kelly, who went on a bottle at 3 weeks out of necessity, and she didn't have any problem taking to the bottle.
Brylee and Griffin were bottle fed from the word 'Go' ... so again, no problem.
All and any advice is gratefully accepted.
I had a cat nap this afternoon, but it was hard due to all the wind and rain pounding on the roof.
End of Day: I look forward to the day I don't have to do school homework for a kid!
A better day today. Thank god for PEPSI.
