Unfortunately this was not the bathroom that I was forced to spend some quality time in over the last 24 hours! The dreaded lurgy has hit out house and has made its way around all of us - except my husband! I swear he must have an iron stomach given what we had to deal with last night. Our big boy was sick for most of our little boys birthday, I got sick not long after my stint on kinder duty, and our poor baby girl came down with it last night and spent most of the night throwing up in our bed! 13 towels later and at 3am we were all done. I have spent most of today washing masses of bed linen and towels and madly disinfecting everyting I could get my hands on. I did come to the realisation that when you are sick, with your head over the toilet bowl, even at 35, you still just want your mum.

Apparently this young man is turning four tomorrow! As we are having his Buzz party on the weekend, we needed a whole other cake for his birthday day - hence our dinosaur that I have been slaving over this morning with directions I might add on m&m placement!
- Isaac was 11 pound 3 at birth - hence those cheeks and squished up eyes. And yes, it was a c-section!
- The cake is from a Donna Hay Kids issue.
- Join in with Lou for 'at my house'.
- I'm posting this birthday pic today cause tomorrow we'll be far too busy opening presents, going to swimming lessons, kinder, handing out birthday treats to everyone we come across and having afternoon tea with some friends so we can munch our way through that dinosaur!!!

My husband wants to know what has come over me, since crocheting granny squares appears to have taken over my life. Each night after the smalls finally fall asleep, out comes my bag of wool and off I go, oblivious to anything around me. I cant tell you the last time I read a book or watched the tv properly or even visited blogland for a thorough read of my favourites! I was warned this might happen - the crochet addiction! Do you have it? My new favourite shops are Spotlight and Lincraft! I have bought a book with 200 different granny squares in it! My friend told me about amigurumi's which I am keen to try next! I read over here today about about how crochet feels like swimming - graceful and meditative, and tis very true. The wee granny square rug above is wonky and full of errors, but I MADE THAT! And Oh, the Satisfaction it gives me! It's heading to a sweet baby girl who is turning 1 this week to use for her dollies.
In my endless googling for crochety things, I came across this great blog, Attic 24. Well worth a look as she gives marvellous instructions for making lovely things. Check out the wonderful granny stripe rug she has made. Just beautiful.

Head on over to draw! pilgrim to print out your own FREE copy! Yay!
And sticking with my slightly green imaged theme, gosh I wish I could find these shoes in my size - lovely green Keds wedges. These size 10's are available on ebay at the moment.
And just a wee side story - why is it always the way that when you have no money you find lovely new clothes to buy? I headed out sans smalls this morning for errands and came across mountains of things I could have bought given an endless supply of cash! Grrrr, to Sussan for not letting me layby the lovely dress on sale in your shop! The husband has me on a tight budget at the moment as I have been lucky enough to be driving a brand spanking new car - a beautiful black Chrysler Grand Voyager! So, while I have no lovely dress or the above perfect shoes to match, I am driving a swish new car with loads of buttons and leather!

Jemima is modelling my first attempt at a crochet granny square rug, the height of comfort and fashion for Play School toys at the moment! Yay for me! Dont look too close as it's pretty raw but it's a perfect size for Jemima and her friends. She didn't really need it last night as it had been a beautiful, warm, sunny Melbourne day and our house stayed nice and toasty all night. Lucky I left it with her though, as she had to pull it over her eyes several times during Offspring when Nina started to get a bit naughty with her sister's ex-boufriend and then the man she really loves who has decided to forget about his missing wife showed up to declare his undying love for her whilst she was still in an intimate state!
