I have been wondering if I can keep this blog up. My posts are getting further and further apart, and more 'nothing-ish' every time. I have a lot to say, but everything in my head spins around so fast, and more and more I just don't have the time to slow down, sort it out and get it out.
It's very frustrating. But I don't want to can this just yet. Want to get back to it. We'll see how I go.

So, as anyone who has kids would know, nothing is ever, ever the same after you have them. Grocery shopping, sleeping, holidays..............they will never be the same. Even making beds. Used to be that I would just strip a bed, get new sheets, make the bed.
Now I strip the bed, get the sheets, start making the bed, leave to check on my beeping washing machine which is threatening to back it in, then back in to the bedroom to this...........

What could it be??? Now I'm watching 'Ghost Whisperer' as I type this and I think maybe I have a ghost in my computer because I had another very cute picture of Clary playing in the sheets just disappeared. Hmmm.

So it takes a while to get new sheets on the beds these days with all the hide 'n' seek and peek-a-boo games.
Keeping with the theme of non-stop excitement, LOL, we now have chooks. Seven of them. Well, we kind of have them, because they came from our next door neighbour and they keep running away back to their old home. Ruby is monster excited, now calls herself a 'farmer' and spends a lot of time down in the chook pen 'cleaning', and having a blast spreading copious amounts of grain feed all over the yard. Clary just stands at the pen going 'book, book, book, book', it's very cute.
It's getting a bit chilly here. I have wasted a lot of kindling, fire starters and matches over the last few days, trying to get a decent fire going. I just don't have good fire starting skills unfortunately. Freezing.
Yesterday afternoon I thought I would have a go at getting some pictures of me with the kids. Not that I like having my own picture, but I hate the thought of not having pictures of all of us together.
As you can see Ruby really got in to it.

Clary wasn't much better. Look at that filthy little nose.

Such a cheeky devil.
So looks like I am destined to have any pictures which include me to be taken at arms length by me.
Will have to set the tripod up. And get a new remote for my camera. I had one but I think Clary's put it away for safe keeping somewhere.

Pleeeeeeeeeease don't can your blog. I love seeing your photos and reading what you've been up to.

I have the same problem with bed making in my house too. Jack is "helping" apparently by jumping really high so I can pull the sheet up.

Good on you for the photos of you and the kids. I took some of Jack and I at the beach the other day and I made the effort to take one of O and I too for our anniversary.

Noooooooooo, you can't give up!

Your photos are just too beautiful and even your stories of general everyday "nothingness" strike a chord with me.

You are much more diligent at blogging than I am - and anyway, quality is always better than quantity.

Please don't stop blogging.

But I can understand.

I don't post on my blog hardly at all.

I don't want to lose touch.
