>Weekly Thumbs

>I figure instead of doing a boring summary of my week I’d give you all a thumbs up/thumbs down version.
Feel free to add your own in the comments.

Start with the bad, shall we?


  • doing everyone else’s washing so that you end up getting stuck with no clean clothes and no sun to dry said clothes.
  • 6:30am similtaneous projectile spews from Lola and Dex waking up.
  • Dex knowing what he wants but not being able to communicate it properly yet.
  • Not having a laundry sink in which to rinse nappies. Options are bathroom sink or hose them down outside.
  • Not having an oven!
  • People complaining.


  • Dex has started saying love you. It is the cutest thing EVER
  • Pat doing ALL the washing. It’s insane. I don’t know how six people can make SO much washing!
  • Getting creative with cooking. Not having an oven has made me look into cooking lots more in the microwave and slow cooker – I even have a slow cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake recipe.
  • Mums. I love mine. I love being able to say good morning every morning.
  • Special bonds between Grandads and grandsons. Dex loves his Grandad and it’s so special him being able to spend so much time with him.
  • Getting your inspiration back. I worried about how having kids might hold me back from what I want to be when I grow up. Now, I’m just going to use them as my muses.
  • Family nap time/cuddle time.
  • one on one time with Dex – especially cooking. He loves helping me cook (he sits in his high chair and I tell him the names of the things we’re using and he parrots me) I hope it sets him up to enjoy cooking all his life – help him get the ladies (or the men, whatever he fancies).
  • Lola smiled!!!

What are your thumbs for the week?
