You know those experiences that just turn you off something?

Like the time I ate so many tomato flavored chips as a kid and it made me very sick. As a result I could not look at tomato chips for a good number of years.

Or like a friend of mine who can’t eat anything with sweet chilly sauce, cause she got food poisoning from something that just happened to contain the stuff. You have had one of those experiences right?

    I have not posted here in a while. Why, you ask…

    Priorities! Over the past 2 months I have had to decide many times to do one thing over another. Ok a lot of the time there is no real choice, its just that some things get done and some other things don’t get done.

    huggiesThis picture has huge significance in my life right now!

    Nappies (or diapers to those of you in some other parts of the world).

    This evening, after her bath, I was dressing Alicia. She started crying, one of those cries that breaks your heart. I picked her up to comfort her. Nappies are very important, trust me, one wet shirt and trousers later, I know!

    Chair build

    Every now and then you have to build stuff for your kids. The other day I had to build a chair. Marla and I (well Marla mainly) wanted to get a reclining chair for Alicia. Something that she could sit comfortably in while we got on with things around the house.
