I shouldn't have.
If I had any true class or refinement I wouldn't have done this.
But goddamn it!, Theodora is 1 now and still only has about the same amount of hair Raphaela was born with...so I got the girl a headband.
*EB readers swoon in disgust at my lack of taste*
Even I think they're stupid, but hey I had to do something...ok!
I still think she looks pretty cute in it.
And cheeky, mustn't forget cheeky.
We had a nice day wandering the Glenelg shops yesterday, Beau was at a work trial(yes Dear Constant Reader, after he in true Chef fashion threw some plates around and quit his job yesterday) so we had some time to kill.
We ended up chilling out on the grass with a horrible/wonderful! greasy Yiros and watching the world go by.
Oh and my car radio caught on fire...but that my Darling Dearest Constant Reader is a whole other tale.
I'm not sure who wanted the Yiros more, the seagulls or Ted!
Last of all, for you Mumsy, my new haircut.
It was traumatic...but I got there in the end!

Another lazy Sunday spent dragging children from drains ( Don't ask!) and baking Christmas sweeties.
As I've already bragged copious times to my mother already...I made Chocolate Dipped Shortbread and it tastes so divine!
Can you tell I'm feeling rather pleased with myself.
Also included for the benefit of my charming parents ...

Who Dear Constant Reader is insane enough to go out to the Adelaide city on a Monday night.
Yup you guessed it , lil ol moi.
Kelly and I were having a hankering for being all dressed up with literally nowhere to go, so thats exactly what we did.
Of course it being Monday night everything was closed or as dull as dishwater...we of course we ended up on Hindley Street of all places...playing the pokies !
From here on in, we would know like to be known as "Ezza and Kezza".
It may not have been a night of excitement, but hey it got us out the house.
(and I'm sure the bartender had fun cleaning up the several glasses I smashed!)
Eden, who is well known for being death on glasses.
My daughter, my teensy tiny bebe girl jumped in the bath yesterday...all by herself.
Yes Dear Constant Reader...fully clothed.
She found it very amusing, I don't think I've ever seen her quite so cheekily gleeful before.
Of course I had to grab the camera...isn't she just radiating naughtiness!

Another Nigella moment today ( if only I had her gorgeous brown eyes and pots of money!).
We baked the Christmas tree cookies from this years Coles Xmas magazine, we also made stars and hearts and some strange unidentifiable shapes(Cheers Bruno)
We did a magnificent job of destroying the kitchen and I managed to knock over a whole containers of those little silver balls...God what ARE they called anyway.
But they all turned out well in the end, and even taste rather scrummy...rather shortbreadish I think.
Checkout Bruno's special "Didor" tree that he made too.

Another "Mytime" spent scoffing Tim Tams and swilling endless mugs of tea.
Have I mentioned I adore Mytime?
I love having a child with "special needs".
All because Raphaela is graced with some measly little extra chromosome I get an excuse to have trained carers sit and entertain my children whilst I gasbag with like minded parents.
It is bliss my friends, BLISS.
Anyway while I sat and did nothing my children frolicked and looked adorable...here's the proof(none of Fatboy sorry, he wouldn't stay still for a photo).
P.S Constant Reader...I have finally met the lovely Karen...mother to Grace who's 4 with Down Syndrome and lover of all things Oilily.
Watch out Diva, you have competition!!!
Kid Free day for Eden, need I say more?
There was everything needed for a fun filled day.
My new Big Bug eye sunglasses, especially purchased to annoy my husband.
Dress ups with Erin at C.A.F.E. We were helping sort donated clothes and I made a stunning ensemble from a fuzzy scarf and a babies bib.
Ohhh and did I mention shopping?
P.s Constant Reader.
A picture of Raph using the broom as a horsey. Just cause shes cute.

I had a lovely uneventful boring day at home today.
I baked a superb, if I do say so myself, apple & rhubarb pie and bustled around cleaning most the day.
I really should be listing on ebay but Raphaela has fallen back in love with one of the dresses I should be listing.
What do you think dear Constant Reader?
Stay or Nay?

What a day, what A day.
This time last year I was nursing my newborn baby girl, I just cannot comprehend that she's 1 already!
We started the day by giving her presents, she just loves her new walker...almost as much as Bruno does!
Then I made myself look somewhat presentable, packed all the various kids up and packed them off to Erin's so I could take Raphaela to the Special Children's Christmas Party at the Adelaide Zoo.
We just had such a lovely day, we wandered around with Grace and Hannah checking out all the animals.
Raphaela spent the day scarfing all the free food,I've never know a child that can eat like her!(wonder where she gets it from?).
She received some wonderful pressies & she's fast asleep as I type still clutching the baby doll she was given.
Last but not least I've included a picture of the corn chip she shared with me.
Generous my girl is.
