The Weekend, wrapped up

My newest baby
We had one of those weekends where we didn't do much, but in a nice way, if you know what I mean? Friday, bubs & I went into town to pick up my new overlocker. Gareth & I talked about it & decided to just make the investment of a new one. I had been looking at second hand ones but was a little dubious as I don't know a hell of a lot about them & didn't want to buy some crapper that I would then have to spend a crap load on fixing it. Gareth agreed with the provision that I have to make some money from it, soooo it looks as though the business idea I've been forming in my mind might come to fruition in a short while. You will find out about this later!

Saturday Gareth came home from work at midday & I was kinda not right. I don't have many days like this & I wasn't that bad but not quite right either. Gareth says he likes when I have these days as I'm "human hanna" and it makes him feel better! I made the mistake of staying indoors when I should have just got out & taken bubs for a walk so it was part cooped up as well. Bubi had been a little grizzly all day & was in one of those moods when she just didn't want to do anything I offered her. I'm a big believer that babies feed off the behaviour of those around them so it's no surprise that she was in a bit of a poop. I just wasn't inspired to cheer her up & couldn't think of anything to do, I just wanted to lie that's what we did until G got home. The poor boy, he just finished his 5 1/2 days at work & had to come home to a stinky girlfriend & baby. To his credit he just got in there & took Isobel off my hands for most of the afternoon. We then had a lovely dinner at my Mum's to celebrate my sister Abbey's b'day. Mum cooked a cracking chicken roast & pavlova for dessert. So yum! Bubs was a champ, didn't grizzle the entire evening despite the late bedtime. I thinked she liked the change in scenery. Today Gareth & Izzy had some play time so I made sure to get some nice shots of Daddy & his little girl, which I don't normally do. I love them! We went for a massive walk & had coffee & I felt a whole lot better about life! It's amazing what some fresh air does for the soul.

Now these things are called Bees & they bite!

Hard day in the office
I found my ear!

Busted! Watching those video clips of Siouxsie & The Banshees again!
