DAY 25 - Your latest purchase

I actually had a chance to go shopping today, for groceries, not luxury items like clothes! pfft, that was years ago when I had time to do that.
This is the last thing I put in the trolley, I left the kids with Nan, and Isaac cried (aww, poor him, but so sweet that he didn't want me to go, he's never been like that before for me)... so I decided I had enough money to go back to the confectionery aisle and get him a choc fish, which I then decided to not give him. It can sit there as a bribe for eating his veges at dinner tonight.

DAY 24 - Favourite food or favourite recipe

I LOVE CHEESE! Sliced, grated, melted, plastic Cheese, Mac Cheese, Cheese on toast, Cheese in a fresh bread sandwich, Cheese with Apple, Cheese on veges.

DAY 23 - Something random/quirky

Oops, been getting a bit behind again! But here we go... This is where Isaac likes to put his phone sometimes.

Everyone in our house loves this! This is the control to fun times, whether it's cartoons, movies or gaming.

DAY 21 - Your letterbox

This is my letterbox, can you tell I forgot to take a photo until just now!? That's why it's dark :)

DAY 19 - Happiness

I was going to skip today's one, as I feel depressed. But while I was writing my post I came up with an idea for a photo.
I've done 4 loads of washing, and hung out 3 of them so far. I took Mr Two to Mainly Music, where he cried and screamed the whole time, then Mr Baby decided to cry too! So I left early, and was all defeated. So I feel far from happy today. I'll feel better after coffee with the girls tomorrow morning.

DAY 17 - Sand

Today I raced to the beach on my way home from the hospital (visiting my dad), jumped out the car, left the kids in the car and took a quick 'sand' photo!

DAY 16 - Childhood Memory

I don't remember this exact moment, but this was the closest photo I could find to my memory... I was in the paddling pool, and there was a bee in the water, and it stung me :( That's just a split second memory I have, I don't remember much at all from my childhood.

DAY 14 - A hobby of yours

Oops, I missed Day 14! Here we go:
After I'd finished laughing so hard at the thought of having a hobby, I decided to look up its definition:
1. An activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure.
Then I laughed some more... how do I, a mother of two, a wife, a home owner, a daughter, a daughter in law, have time for hobbies!?!
This is my photo, these bags are just the start of my scrapbooking, I also have 2-3 40/60L full storage boxes out in the shed. I LOVE scrapbooking, and I can't wait to have a dedicated space set up for it. I am one year behind in the boys scrap books, but I hope to get up to date before they turn 21.

DAY 15 - Before & After

This is my 'area' in the lounge, this is it before I live in it. And after about 24hours it looks like the 'after' shot. It's a total mess! But it's all my stuff to do, people to ring, reference stuff. Boy, oh boy, do we need an office in this house!! :)

DAY 13 - Your favourite colour

I don't really have a fave colour. But today, and for the rest of the RWC I'll go with green for Ireland (unless the ABs are playing, then it's black).

DAY 12 - Wheels

This is the wheel on my car. It's scratched and dirty, but that's life.

DAY 11 - Water

I am trying to drink 8 glasses of water a day... today this is my 5th glass. I'm doing pretty well today, previously I was lucky to be having 3 day!
Water is good for making breast milk, which I need to make at the moment, and great for losing weight, which I also need to do. :)

DAY 10 - A nice view

Some beach in Hawaii. Went here for our honeymoon 7 years ago. I don't remember the name of it, all i remember is that it is down a steep hil, it was 50c to get the bus down, and $1 to get it back up haha. A nice view from the top though.

DAY 9 - You with some of your favourite things

This is me with a few of my favourite things....
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things....
I love that song, but I can never remember the lyrics, I digress... It was a quick photo, with the things I use everyday, that usually always sit next to me on my couch, so they were all handy: laptop, facebook, camera, ipod, cellphone, gina fords baby book, my hoodie, and my trackpants & slippers (although not shown in this photo).

DAY 8 - Sunshine

I had pre-written a few of these photo-a-day blogs, until now! woopsy! Now they are getting away from me.
It was last night when I looked to see that the next photo was "sunshine" and where was I going to find sunshine at 10pm?! Nowhere. And our photo harddrive was turned off because we had been away, so I couldn't even look for an old photo.
I did think about taking a photo of my husband and said he was the sunshine in my life... but I didn't want to get all sappy.
So today, it's been raining on and off all day. Finally the sun is shining and my clothes are outside, undercover, on the clothes horses in case it rains and gets windy so I can bring them inside in a weather type emergency.

DAY 7 - Flowers

This is a weedy flower growing next to a tree I have. I'm not really a flower person, and I hate gardening. However, if my husband decided to get me flowers I'd LOVE it!

DAY 6 - Clouds

DAY 5 - A Pet (past or present)

This is our Nala cat. I wanted to photograph Cola, but he didn't want to show up for the photo shoot, he's such a Diva. Nala is far more professional. We have had Cola & Nala for about 11 years now.
However, a few days after I took this photo, Cola decided he did want to be on my blog, and showed up to the next photo shoot:

DAY 4 - Black & white

I love how I managed to capture the love these two have for each other without them noticing. It was so sweet to catch that special and private moment on camera.

DAY 3 - A creative project

First, let me start by saying "Happy 7 yr Wedding Anniversary to ME! (& my hubby)".
Now, back to the blog at hand...
I have actually completed a few crafty projects recently, this is not one of them. Here is one, and this is the other.
I saw a blog on how to make a card wallet, went and bought the fabric, and that's all so far. I had more fun setting up the photo than I will making the wallet.

DAY 2 - Your favourite place

I have lots of favourite places, so it depends how you define 'favourite' and 'place'. But my everyday favourite place is here, in bed, nice and warm, and asleep with peace and quiet, the best time to enjoy this place is when its morning, and you you are awake enough to enjoy it, but still asleep enough to be resting. Since I never get that, it's one thing i miss the most, and look forward to having back one day, in about 3 years time; when we finish having kids and I don't need to breast feed them. Oh, it would be nice to have a hangover in my bed one morning.

DAY 1 - You with someone you love

Since I have a busy week next week, I am giving myself a head start on this challenge, it will mean I can skip a day or two, and not get behind :)
This is my hubby. I told him to pose for the photo and smile... He decides to pull this face, and I say "You know this is going on my blog"
Hubby "HUH? WHAT?!"
"HAHAHAHA, too late now buddy, I've taken the photo and I told you to smile"
SHAME! But I do love him really.
