Weekend Round Up…

The twins are either getting more clever or I am just getting dumber (or older at a rapid rate).
N is starting to say words a little more clearly and has even taken to repeating words we use. She still babbles some kind of language (and I’m not kidding when I say it sounds Chinese!), but all in all she seems to be improving.
As usual A’s mouth at all of nearly 3 yrs old is waaaay too ahead of his time that it continually shocks me. He on Saturday told me what he wanted to eat, when the food was getting too cold and just the icing on the cake – “don’t be stupid”. This folks was all during supper.


A1 is a man of many talents. My hubby is a Chef by profession. He is currently the Catering Manager for a large manufacturing company. He is also very good with technology. PC’s, laptops, cell phones, consoles, gaming etc. You name it, and he is just naturally good at it. I, on the other hand, suck at technology. But slowly but surely I am learning things.
Another talent that A1 has is that he can cut hair! He just gave A a good haircut on Sat and I swear it looks better than what a barber or salon can do. I am nearly tempted to ask him to cut mine! Lol!


The weekend has been rather cool weather wise. This works out perfectly for me as earlier in the week it was soooo hot I felt practically ill. I am NOT a fan of Summer. The heat is just way to intense and I am miserable through majority of it.
Its not properly Summer yet and the heat was damn near a killer. If I make it through the Summer time that approaches, its going to be a miracle.

So, how was your weekend? Have a good one?

I’m Becoming Tech Savvy…

I am like a child with a new toy! It’s ridiculous how wonderful something so small could turn out to be!

Ok, it’s not too small, it’s about 7”.

Yes folks I am in the possession of a 7” epad android. It’s B E A U T I F U L!!

I could easily spend hours on this or more, but due to other constraints like, work, kids etc. it seems to be limited. I will of course never, and I mean never, get over my Blackberry addiction. That is going to stay with me for life.

This epad makes downloading from the net a HELL of a lot better. I mean it’s faster to connect your 3G card to this little device and get cracking than to wait FOREVER for something to download when doing it on a laptop.

This little gem can be an ereader, movie player, you can download wonderful apps from Adroid app store (majority of which are free by the way!), music player etc. etc. I don’t know what an IPad is like but I am very impressed with this 7” tablet. From what I hear to download things to your IPad or to download videos from youtube etc. is rather difficult through IPad. Everything runs through Itunes. Which from the prices, I would say stick to android app store thanks.

Best thing about this whole scenario? I’m becoming more tech savvy by the minute. I never would have thought I would venture into the world of technology and actually like it! I’m learning and enjoying.

Long story short? Im falling in loooovvee! 😉

I loooovvveee it!!

Technology Fail…Amongst Other Things.

I will NEVER get the hang of this whole technology thing!

Just when I think I have it all under control, I don’t. I seriously don’t.


So this weekend I go ahead and add a “contact me” on my blog. Hope you noticed!  😉

In any case I changed the email to the new email on my account etc. and that was that.

You see, I thought when I changed email addresses it would not affect the blogs I subscribed too with my other one. I, for a lack of a better word, was naïve. Turns out it doesn’t work that way. I discovered this morning that I should have in actual fact have gone into my settings of the blogs I subscribed too and tell WordPress to send me updates when new blog posts are up. Now I might have had a bit of a bright spark moment and thought that maybe this will only be for the blogs I subscribe too that are WordPress blogs. Right? Shit, I don’t know. Will have to wait until one of those wonderful people post something.


N is snoring again. Louder this time. I think her sinus issue is getting worse. The nasal spray the paed recommended (which was a spray in each nostril before bed) has worked wonderfully up until now.

I have no idea what’s happening. She sleeps at night with her mouth open just so she can breathe a bit better. She snores so loudly I can hear her from the lounge sometimes. And sometimes it sounds like she is drawing a “last breath”.  <<<<<< (Insert not sleeping to well and dreaming horrid things on my part here).            

This situation has led to her being all pms like (this is what I call it coz there is no better way for me to explain the mood she was in yesterday). One minute she was a happy little girl, the next she wanted to make her brother bleed, and the next she was all tears and just wanted to be in the arms (standing up, not sitting and being in the arms). This cycle carried on most of the day right up until bedtime.

Have been trying to phone the paed office since 08h30! WTF? Why am I getting  “our lines are currently busy please hold” message. I’d be mighty pissed if they were closed (as tomorrow is a Public Holiday) and just didn’t damn well put a message saying so!


Last night I hurt my back. No, it’s not what you’re thinking you pervs 😉 , it’s the mere fact that my kids are becoming (what feels like) mini elephants. After N’s little pms moment yesterday, it was on one of those moments where I picked her up and my lower back said: “TO HEAR AND NO FURTHER!!”  I’m not gonna lie. It hurts like a bitch. I mean while walking putting pressure on my right foot sends endless amounts of agony from my lower back out toward my whole body. It hurts, pure and simple.

I thought if I just got a good night’s sleep it would be better and that I would be fine this morning. I’m not.

 This is going to be a looong day….

Update: I got hold of the paed office. Seems we should up the dosage of N’s nasal spray to twice a day for a week and see if it helps clear it. If not she needs to see the ENT. Its now a wait and see game.
