Yes I'm back blogging and it has been far too long!!
Being a new mum means I have been flat out, can't believe Siobhan is almost 9 months old tomorrow!!
I love being a mum especially now that Siobhan is more interactive and talks and crawls and tries to stand I am so looking forward to the days she can sit with me and craft! What a magnificent time that will be!
This summer has included so many picnics, walks, trips to the park and wildlife park! We have all spared a thought for the brushfire victims this summer, cannot even imagine that type of devastation
One of my New Years resolutions of increasing my exercise post baby body has taken off with a real enjoyment walking with Siobhan, not only is it real "us" time but its great to get out and see so many things that you just cannot notice in the car. With a park just down the road from us how could you not take advantage of such a beautiful place.
So many things have taken place since my last post, a recent event being my birthday which included my first birthday as a mummy! What could be more special than that I had a real desire to make a Martha Stewart strawberry frosted cake using Siobhans baby food processing machine to stew the fresh strawberries and include them in the cake and frosting, couldn't get more delicious than that!!!
Be back with another post a lot sooner this time

I can't believe the christmas season is upon us already, we decided to put our tree up early, lucky enough to find a great deal of decorations thrifted from the local oppie! what a saving! and good to recycle when we can! Lucky at the moment that Siobhan isn't quite old enough to crawl yet and get into the pressies.
What are you all planning to do in preparation for xmas? On the agenda this week is homemade fudge to get loved ones in the xmas spirit. Have almost completed xmas shopping and have sat and done all our xmas cards last night :)
Miss Siobhan in front of our Xmas Tree! daddy bought her the little pink fold out couch.
We have been enjoying the sunshine and took the chance to take Siobhan to the local Burnie Park, we hadnt' been there for a while and were impressed with the upkeep of it. The grounds are so beautiful and it was nice to see people of all ages enjoying it. Siobhan slept through it so we will be back again soon to watch the look onher face when we show her the ducks.
My next blog will be a xmas focus on homemade xmas cooking :)
Happy Xmas preparations

The vase happens to be one I thrifted last week with Tom's mum, dont think you can ever have enough vases!
The three of us just before we headed off to my sister in-laws cocktail birthday party we really enjoyed the night and Siobhan was so good sleeping for a lot of it, she was of course the star of the night with lots of cuddles with everyone!
Till next blog

Tom and I sat down to watch this movie based on Julia Child's life, it was such a beautiful movie, I loved her personality so happy and she was so feminine, always wearing her beautiful pearls and lipstick, it was also nice to watch a movie that was so simple and her and her husband were so in love.

On Siobhans desk in her bedroom now sits a china doll that belonged to my granda, she had her many many years and it always sat on the same place on her bed, when my sister and I were young we used to play with it so often when we went to visit them on the weekends, we would often disappear together and play with the dollys putting them in and out of the bed covers so many times!
The sweet little perfume bottle here I found at a thrift store in Hobart when I was with my sister, it caught my eye in the window and I went in and grabbed it!! Didn't realise till I got home that underneath it read "italian glass!" what a find, and very cute don't you think? :)
Dad did a good job on this wooden box he made me, it has nwo found its way onto my desk shelf! my stamp colleciton is also growing as I am scrapbooking on Siobhan so much.
I keep all my letters/ card making supplies and envelopes here on this corner on my desk
Till next blog, I have a new pritner will come in handy for printing photos of Siobhan and crochet patterns! when tom is off night shift he is going to set it up for me, I am impatient and want it set up now! but will have to wait.
