    I spend all week composing a blog post in my head, i'm sure ... a little of this .. a witty of that.

    But now when I get a moment ? Blank.

    I actually bought a 'home organiser' this week, to deal with things such is who is supposed to be where at what time, home for dinner, needing something for show'n'tell, and who is going to cut off our power etc if we don't pay them.

    Oh - and it was pretty too:

    Making lots of day-trips at the moment, in this glorious Spring weather .. making up for that long horrible winter of sickness and being stuck inside. Such a breath of fresh air.
    This week it was Como House:

    Como House

    ( more pics on my flickr for those interested in such things )

    And finally, a big belated thankyou to Leslie for my Oobee Blankee that I won on her blog for probably using a lot of inappropriate language when detailing the birth of the firstborn ( by contrast, thanks to the Good Lords at the Drug Companies, when I get around to writing about the 2nd birth, i'll probably sound like some Woodstock Hippy. Yay to pain blockers ! )

    I've been trying to get a cute pic of him sleeping with it, but he uses a horrible looking dummy ( pacifier to our out-of-towners ) and scrunches the oobee blankee lovingly, yet not very beautifully. At least it's loved. Here's a pic of him smooching it. See ? Appreciated, loved.

    You can buy Leslie's beautiful creations in her shop. Beautiful things for babies and gifts for people you'd like to impress with your thoughtfulness.

    Better hurry though - I bet her current stock will sell out fast !
    ( Go, go already ! )

    Gorgeous diary, The Master Plan...have one myself!

    Why do babies lick everything...ok, you don't really have to answer that one? He's a very cute licker though! ;-)

    As lovely as The Master Plan is, it would last oh four minutes in my house.

    I have a BIG whiteboard. If it's not on the whiteboard it doesn't happen. Many appointments have been forgotten because they weren't on the whiteboard.

    Hi H&B. I return (and to my own blog as well).

    I too am enjoying the warmer weather - and that's a big admission based on the fact I do generally prefer the cold weather.

    Love the diary thingie. I would buy one too but I think I better use the 5 or so I already have -!

    You know I am going to Flickr after this - that photo is gorgeous.

    As is my boy of course -

    Christie said...

    so how is the diary thing working out? I need to get sorted for 09, my brain is mush- must. write. things. down...

    love the warmer weather, haven't spent much time at como house, but I love como park, great place to wear the kidlettes out!

    Instead of a diary, we have a humungous big calendar on the back of the toilet door. (It's a bit embarassing when I'm on the phone and I want to write down whatever appointment it is I'm organising... I'm terrified my voice will go echo-ey.)

    Melody said...

    I've been flirting with the idea of buying one of those 'Master Plan' diaries myself, on the recommendation from Kikimiss... I wonder if you will recommend it to me too? But then, I don't live an overly busy life, I just like the idea of my own diary! *heehee*

    Como house is lovely - I will have to check out your Flickr v. soon.

    I have a similar problem with the blankness.

    In my head I'm super witty. Something gets lots from my mind to my fingertips.

    Gorgeous photo of Como.
