Getting crafty with The Wiggles

I love crafting with my girls, even though I'm terrible at it!

Nothing pretty about our craft, we just get the kit out, dig in, get messy and let ideas come to us as we go..

On this day, Soph asked if we could colour in paper plates, so I got some out, and some paint, and we just started to colour them..

Cut to 3 plates later and we realised we had a green, a purple and a brown plate - so we decided to turn them into friends of the Wiggles ;)

Georgia LOVED it - she's Wiggles obsessed at the moment - which I think is causing friction between me and the Husband, seeing he is team Greg and I am team Sam.. Soph is team Emma and Georgia doesn't seem to care as long as someone's wearing a yellow shirt ;)

Who's your favourite Wiggle?

Who knew the Golden Globes had REAL couples in love!

I had a ball yesterday hanging out with some lovely ladies watching the Golden Globes!

In between sipping & snacking and chatting about the gorgeous dresses and how funny Tina and Amy were hosting, I noticed how normal some of the celeb couples were!

Just normal people who actually love each other: Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner,
Hugh Jackman & Deborra-lee Furness, Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard..

I haven't got permission to post pics, so head over to ivillage for a look!

It was nice to see some ladies dressing for their figure and looking incredible instead of just cramming themselves into whatever was on trend - Adele, Claire Danes, Jennifer Garner - beautiful :)

Did you watch the Golden Globes? Comment below and tell me your favourite couple, favourite frock of the night!

Happy New Year!

Just a quick post today to say Happy New Year :)

We've had a stressful week with Sophie breaking her arm (falling off a swing) on Boxing Day and needing 3 days in hospital with surgery.. then poor Georgia burning her fingers last night on her mashed potato (I felt terrible - it was a lot hotter than I thought it was and she got them in there just as we were about to test it!).

Our local hospital is full of kind, understanding, helpful people - staff, volunteers and other parents - we are so grateful to them :)

The girls are in great spirits and handling it all really well - better than I think I would have in their shoes!

I do want to say a big thank you to Ben, our family, friends - all of you for your support and well wishes while all of this was happening - you are amazing xx

So, in light of the stressful week, the new year brings with it a sense of new beginnings and hope (aw, I sound like a movie) and I'm going to make the most of it!

Here are my resolutions for 2013:

I'm aiming for life to be:

  • Happy
  • Healthy
  • Balanced
..and of course I'll still be finding ways to make life easy as a busy mum :)

I'd love to know your resolutions! Comment below and let me know what they are - or if you don't do them, let me know what you are most excited about this New Year :)
