new onesies instore

Little Lark onesie's have arrived instore and they are so simple and clean and beautiful for a new baby.
Little Lark is mother owned and operated in Oregan, USA. All onesies are 100% organic cotton and the prints are individually silk screened by hand. Fabric labels are hand printed on recycled cloth and ironed to the inside of each garmet. Garments are printed in small batches and ink colors are hand mixed, so subtle variations exist from shirt to shirt.
Each garment has its own unique touch of individuality, just like the little characters wearing them!
I've posted them online and you can buy them here.

a little joke for the mums out there

i got this in my inbox today and i must admit, thought it was funny!


Six married men will be dropped on an island
with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.
Each kid will play two sports and either take music or dance classes.

There is no fast food.
Each man must take care of his 3 kids;
keep his assigned house clean,
correct all homework,
and complete science projects,
do laundry, and pay a list of'pretend' bills withnot enough money.

In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week.
Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives,
and send cards out on time--no Emailing.

Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment,
a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment.
He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the A & E.
He must also make biscuits or cakes for a social function.

Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times.

The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.

The men must shave their legs,
wear makeup daily,
adorn himself with jewellery, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes,
keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed.

During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps,
back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.

They must attend weekly school meetings, church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.

They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 8:00 am.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information:
each child's birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size
and doctor's name.
Also the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labour, each child's favourite colour, middle name, favourite snack, favourite song, favourite drink, favourite toy, biggest fear and what they want to be when they grow up.

All the above must be completed whilst working in either full time(preferably) or part time employment to assist in the financial input for the family.

The kids vote them off the island based on performance.The last man wins only if...he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice.

If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years eventually earning the right To be called Mum!

After you get done laughing, send this to as many females as youthink will get a laugh out of it and as many men as you think can handle it!

Just don't send it back to me....I'm going to bed.

Mathilda's Market

Mathilda's Market is on again next month (1st weekend of July) and we are lucky enough to have another table. We just got a few photos sent from the last Sydney event and i was very chuffed to see that they have used a photo from my stall - yay!!

Recognise a few things from the store? Lots of goodies made locally or by other mums, the stuff that i really love in the shop.

That's whats great about markets such as Mathilda's Market - they support local small designers and us customers get to enjoy products that are unique.. love it!

Will write more about the market in a couple of weeks x

Terrible Two's.....

Little h hasn't too bad in the scheme of things but there have certainly been times when he has tried our patience. But with potty training a success, it appears the short temper, demands and just plain mischievousness has now left the house and we have our lovely little boy back thats listens.
he said Thank you 3 times (and its only lunchtime!)
kissed and cuddled mum twice (without being asked!)
didn't argue about the Munster trackpants he was wearing today (there's been arguments every morning with wanting to wear shorts)
..and played with baby h when I wasn't looking (nicely!)

fingers crossed (and i'm not saying this out loud) we may have passed the terrible two's stage...
