hello and welcome to my old friend SPRING. Its spring tomorrow but honestly I think spring has well and truly sprung early this year - my jasmine has been in flower and smelling devine for a couple of weeks now and as you can see so have the other plants in my garden. I can't believe its September already WOW. Christmas will be here before you know it.
And speaking of September - I think all cloth nappy people know what I am about to say - Its time once again for the Great Down Under Nappy Hunt (if you don't know what I am talking about check out http://www.diaperdecisions.com/pages/greatnappyhunt.php)
Thousands of us crazy people will be madly glued to our computers hunting for a little icon
So if I'm a little quiet for the next moth you know why.

my 2 school monkeys had their sports day on Thursday and what a great day it was. I had the day off work which was pretty good in itself but aside from that they made me proud my oldest monkeys did.
BJ won his first ever ribbon when he came first in his relay race and then followed that up with a third place in the longest ball toss competition. He was so proud of himself too which made it all worthwhile. He was however a little disappointed that he didn't do better in his individual running race but he came fourth and thats nothing to be sneezed at but I guess he is a typical male and never happy with what he has LOL.
Delaney won her individual running race just like last year and came a very close second in her relay. I hope she sticks with running because she has such a great relaxed style she is a pleasure to watch it seems as though she isn't trying at all.
And just for something different as their house colour is green I thought I would hand dye some white t- shirts. It worked out really well because in a sea of green they stood out and we could always tell where they were because no-one looked quite like them. A great day was had by all!!!

I made playdough today - i haven't made it in the longest time. Darren went to play bowls so I got busy making playdough, banana cake and lemon butter but anyway back to the playdough - it truely was a miracle - 4 quiet happy children amusing themselves without fighting. Pity it didn't last just a little longer lol.
My Playdough Recipe
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
4 tsn cream of tartar
2 cups water
mix all together in pot and cook until it all comes together in a ball. Then I normally knead it a little to smooth it out a bit. And there you have it the magic miracle provider of a little quiet time :)
