Audrey at 15 months

D’oh! Another month has passed

And naughty me didn’t keep my promise.

Forgive me?

The phone. . . not a fav thing to give her but a life buoy when you need her to be quiet or you just need a sitting still shot of her.

Audrey currently has 12 teeth.

And they snap down hard and fast like a crocodile if you are not quick!

I lost a pair of Audrey’s shoes. Hence why she isn’t wearing any. I am going to buy her some nice dress shoes today or tomorrow. Because it is party central this weekend. I took the weekend off work because I received invites to 3 events! THREE in the one weekend. And by George, I am going to them all! An afternoon tea engagement party, a family reunion in Newcastle on Saturday night (Christmas in July) and then back to Sydney for a Christening on Sunday! Plus I want to make a start on my bed head d.i.y.

No sleep for the wicked.

Finally I have a day off and time to spend with my Audrey. I didn’t really get a weekend last week. I had to do a freelance gig that meant working AND taking care of Audrey at the same time! It worked out ok in the end. I took Audrey to a nearby park at lunch, let her run riot and then she zonked out to Zeds ZZzzzZZ land in the pram on the walk back and she slept for 1.5 hours while I bashed out some work! When she awoke I left her to her own devices and I was working with my back to her, I turned to check on her and she had taken a corn fritter out of the take away container and smooshed it into the carpet and with a plastic knife and fork was trying to eat it! The colour drained from my face and I said a little prayer. “Dear God, don’t let anyone walk into this office until I can fix this.” The humble baby wipe saved the day and my caboose. Couldn’t even tell!

They wanted me to come back the next day, but that was just WAYYYYY too much. Just too much. I had to draw the line somewhere, so I have been working on it when I can. But that has all been wrapped up now. Thank goodness.

Then I had some intense days at my regular job too. I just need a breather. Or in other words and all expenses paid holiday to somewhere tropical and balmy.

Not going to happen? So instead I am spending some leisurely time at my dining table and bench seat bathing in the beautiful sunlight that enters this room! Speaking of this room. My kitchen posts will start shortly. . . .

Long time coming.

    Gorgeous!! She is just adorable!! But oh yes, they are busy little things at this age, and so destructive too!
    You sound very, very busy. Looking forward to kitchen posts and the bedhead progress and seeing what you’ve picked out. I’ve had a bedroom post swirling around in my head for a while now – they’re a very important room! xx

      Yes! She was destructive yesterday. SHE TOUCHED JUST ABOUT EVERY SINGLE THING IN THE HOUSE! Yes, been way too busy than I would like. I can’t wait to see a bedroom post from you! It would definitely help me. Kicking myself over the schumacher. I really am!! Arghh. Yes I feel like I can/SHOULD have nice things in my bedroom because I can close the room to my little one and it be just an adult only sanctuary that isn’t at risk of being ruined by kids. . or guests. . .
