I'm looking forward to this movie

Is it sad that I look forward to animated kids movies than some of the crap that is released for "adults"??

I haven't updated in a while.

I have been busy working on a project.

I play hatchlings on facebook and have been developing a website to go along with this (and a forum) to help thousands of people out :)

I'm also still doing my swimming twice a week - go me!

Jordy has also been a delight the last week, he's been in a much better mood, so we've been having fun :)

I did it!

I went to the pool this morning, put Jordy in the child minding, and I swam....

lap after lap after lap.

I thought I was going to die after 200m but I kept going and just got into a rhythm.

It was great!

All that deep breathing, the solitude........ bliss

I feel so great.

I ended up swimming a whole kilometre :)

OK so I did cheat and use fins, but hey I haven't done laps in over 10 years and I'm so unfit!

Oh and Jordy was great :) he was happy baby in minding too :) only got upset once when another baby was crying lol.

And the little monkey did a big poo so they had to change his nappy lol......

So all in all a great morning, legs are feeling a tiny bit rubbery, but not too bad really :)

I will be going back next week :)

Yay, Thanks Court!

Court from Court In The Middle has just started swimming training. She has inspired me!

When I was younger I always loved doing squad, would train 3 days a week and do club on Saturday mornings. I absolutely loved it.

Unfortunately life and work got in the way and I stopped doing it for a long time (probaby over a decade).

Now Court has inspired me, there is only one pool in the area that has child minding available (well 2, but the other one is for over 18 months, the receptionist just told me to put Jordy in the pram on the side of the pool!!).

So, I'm going to try to go twice a week. They only have the child minding from 9 - 10.15, so that gives me a definate window of time that I need to go :)

Will report back on Thursday how I go.......

Mmmmm Rocky Road

Harry's Rocky Road

Found this site during the nappy hunt too....... mmmm sounds delicious.

I just wish they had an ingredients listing so that I could see if they were gluten free or not :(

Stuck on you Allergy Lables from Bumbles

This site is doing my head in when searching for that elusive nappy icon, so while I am searching madly for the solution to the 4th clue, I found these

Bumbles - Stuck on you Allergy Labels

They are really cute allergy labels with the childs name, emergency contact details etc. I can see myself using these in the future :)

Twiggi Online Party supply store.

This has some really cool things on it, and if you're after a themed party, then this is the place to go :)

Hunting Hunting Hunting

I've been spending my time the last few days hunting for nappy icons on the Great Down Under Nappy Hunt.

I'm getting better at these over the years as I work out the sneaky tricks, but some of them I'm completely stumped on.

I've found some cool sites though, and might blog about them as I find them :)
