Catch up

Well I am in an internet cafe in West London.

Its been lovely having a break and some time to myself. Richard has been fantastic with letting me have a few treats for myself and taking care of Liam. He's enjoying spending more time with him.

The flight was great, but long. I was so glad when it was done. Liam did really well.

Unfortunately on Tuesday he got really sick and we ended up taking him to the emergency department where he was diagnosed with an ear infection and gastro. Its the first time he's been really sick and we all got such a shock. Projectile vomit is not fun but thankfully he is fine again and the antibiotics are working well. I was so worried.

So far so good. And I did buy the orange dress from Monsoon too :)

Hello World

and hello Monday.

I have a busy week ahead. We leave at 11.30am on Thursday morning. I am getting tired already thinking about the flight but I am really organised, so I am hoping and crossing fingers it will be ok.

I took Liam to Perth when he was 2 months old, but this is different. 24 hours. One 6 hour stopover in Singapore. A little cherub who wants to grab everything and I mean everything.

I have so much washing and packing to do today. For some reason I have also arranged an appointment in Paddington to get my hair foiled for the bargain price of $35! I don't really have the time to do it, but it was such a bargain I couldn't resist. I'll post some piccies later.

I had a great weekend with my boys. Just beautiful. I was so happy to celebrate Father's Day yesterday. I spoilt my beautiful husband and although we had to eat in shifts at Moo Burgers we still had a lot of fun.

We got stopped in Bondi yesterday by a rather attractive looking lady who suggested I should take Liam to a modelling agency for kids. She was from Canada and had managed an agency for kids out there and said Liam has a very 'now look'. He's 9 months old!

I don't know. To me he is gorgeous with his big eyes and curly hair but mum's think their children are the most beautiful in the world. He's just a little boy and I don't think I'd feel too comfortable about it all.

Anyway, have a great week and I'll be back later before we go.

It's Bondi Junction on steriods baby...

When I lived in London I lived in a suburb called Chiswick which was right next door to Shepherds Bush, which is mostly where all the Australian's and Kiwi's congregated.

Westfields have opened up a brand new shopping centre in She Bu (that's what I used to call it when I lived there). According to my friend in Amanda who now lives back in London with her daughter Bo, 'its like Westfield Bondi Junction on steriods baby'.

So, you can imagine how excited I am about spending my first Saturday in London at this new shopping mecca. And how even more excited I got when I discovered they have a champagne bar, smack bag in the middle of it all. Rose', Cliquot anyone?

I am looking forward to having a rummage through Monsoon, my most favourite UK shop. I've shortlisted these three dresses as possibilities for the wedding we are attending. What do you think?

I am so sorry I haven't posted for a while - but things have been HECTIC!

Liam and I have been keeping ourselves ultra busy and I have been feeling amazingly better. My zest for life is coming back in a big way and I am seeing things so much more clearly now. I love it.

Liam and I have found the best playgroup EVER on Mondays and Thursdays and its really been a saviour for the both of us. I love taking him there and I love the volunteers and the other mum's.

Next Thursday the three of us fly out to Singapore and London for three weeks. Things aren't great with Richard's parents, despite his brother getting married at the end of the month, but we are just going to look forward to our trip and relish spending three weeks together. I know Richard misses Liam so much each day and he is really looking forward to introducing Liam to his big brother.

I am also trying to negotiate a return to work in October which is proving hard due to childcare arrangements, but it looks like Liam's godmum is going to become his personal nanny (lucky boy!). We still have a few things to sort out before the arrangement goes ahead, and I will absolutely despise going back to work, but we need the money if we are to get to Perth this year.

This Sunday is also Fathers Day. Richard wants to go out for a juicy hamburger so we are taking him to Moo Burgers in Bondi for an extra special treat. I really want to make it a wonderful day for him because he's such an awesome dad and husband.
