Journalling reads: I used to be really into music, when I was a kid, I knew every single song that was in the top 40 each week. I knew most of the lyrics too. I still love to listen to music while I scrap or can’t sleep but I prefer to put on my older music that I have ripped to Itunes, instead of new albums. Singing along to familiar lyrics makes me happy. These were the top plays on my itunes playlist this year. Some of the artists have more than one song because the number of plays was the same. Ironically only 3 of these albums (the top 3) were released in 2010.

Journalling reads: When it comes to birthday presents, I have a very bad habit of giving them to the boys early. Iam awful at keeping secrets from people and surprising them, mostly because I am so impatient. I want to see their reaction as soon as I have the gift to give them. This year that ended up working in my favour for once. I gave the boys one of Logan’s birthday presents to play with one day when they were being noisy and annoying each other. I thought it would be a good distraction and an activity they could do together. They had a lot of fun playing with it and fighting over who got what to play with. Their birthdays ended up being really rubbish, so I am glad that they at least had this chance to play with and enjoy one of the birthday presents, before all of the chaos. Even if all of the little bits are now missing. Although the best part for me is having photographic evidence that they can play nicely together!

Journalling reads: Logan has always loved to climb up things, but it’s only recently that he has started to climb across and over things, his favourite being the rope bridges and cargo nets on the climbing frames. This park has a little kiddy obstacle course complete with a baby cargo net frame and cargo net bridge. It was so cute watching him take tiny deliberate steps to get across it. He never put a foot wrong once which is lucky since he is tiny enough to get his feet stuck in the gaps. He was so proud of himself when he got all the way across it.

Journalling reads: When Lukas saw this zip line in the park, he begged us to take him so he could have a try. We had somewhere to be that day, but we did promise to bring him back another day. Since the weather was nice and Mark was off work we decided today would be a great day to try it out. We caught the bus to the park and played for a while on the other park equipment. When the zip line was free we walked Lukas over for his turn. It was then that he decided he wanted nothing to do with the zip line. He said it was “too fast, too high and too scary”. Daddy couldn’t wait to have a go and try it out, and even though we tried our hardest we couldn’t convince Lukas that it was fun. Logan however has no fear and he couldn’t wait to try it out. He got a go with Daddy first and even though he nearly slipped off daddy’s lap, he couldn’t wait to go a second time with mummy. Mummy held him a little differently but he loved both of his trips on the zip line. We haven’t found anything yet that scares him, he’s willing to try anything once and then again to see if he likes it. It’s a little scary really we can already tell that he is going to be an up for anything daredevil!

Journalling reads: This is exactly why I do not like it when Mark starts to play with the power tools. For some reason his insane male brain told him it would be a good idea, to take off the safety guard on the router while he was working with it. He ended up cutting into the end of his thumb and taking a very long trip to A&E. After an x-ray they saw that not only had he cut part of his thumb off, he had also shattered a bone in his finger, and he had also completely destroyed the nail and nailbed. He ended up having some Day surgery to remove a shard of bone and 6 weeks off of work. Because when it comes to tools, he is an absolute idiot!!!
