Two posts in one day

… isn’t that special!

Thought I should post today’s photo of the day

I had helpers to make cupcakes with me. I do baking with Charlize and Jessi most weeks but it was a novelty for Liam (Charlize’s 9 year old brother) … he was mixing the icing for me and chatting about how he helps around the house by picking stuff up and doing the dishes … mixing icing seemed like a bit of a novelty … so was real butter wrapped in paper … they only have the sort that comes out of a plastic container at their house! I got him to have a go at piping the icing but it is apparently harder than it looks and he gave up after two cupcakes!

I do enjoy the school holidays … desipite my moaning about being interupted with kid needs and stuff. I like the change in routines, not having to run kids places and do drop offs and pick ups and all that. I like giving the kids new experiences and teaching them stuff in a casual way. I quite like the extra cuddles I can snatch throughout the day too.

Speaking of a learning opportunity … Jessi managed to lose the knife behind the cupboard so I educated her in the magic of magnets and metal stuff. And Alexander learned that stapling his finger hurts which resulted in him turning completely white, going dizzy and throwing up.

So anyway … I was just relaxing here in the sun and catching up on blogs and I read on Vicki’s blog about a ‘win a handbag’ opportunity. So I clicked on the link and filled in the info for one chance to win, then found I can get lots more chances just for blogging about it and spreading the word. So go here to Handbag Planet and then you can be in to win too… everyone could do with a new handbag right?
