Who Said you never forget how to ride a Bike???

Ok, well maybe it's true, I didnt forget how!
But my Bum sure forgot, and my leg muscles too!
and if I can offer a little advice, if you haven't ridden a bike in 7 years, then 6.5kms around Dubbo Zoo isn't the best time to take up bike reading again.
One more piece of, what I think is really good advice, whether riding a bike, walking, driving... make sure the person with the map knows how to read it! ( when you feel like you're dying on a bike you dont want to be lost, TRUST ME!!!) P.s Vicki I still Love you!

Ok so technically, this photo is day two, and we travelled by car, but still the giraffes were a favourite on both days!

The Elephants were a little boring, apparently, until the kids found out that while Dad was washing the Rhinoceruses, Pop was wiping the Elephants' bums!
Hannah thought it was Gross, the boys thought it was very Cool!

 Dad is also an accomplished Painter, a busy one too! As he painted all the Zebra's stripes!
It sure was a long way in the bike and very tiring according to Hannah
(who was in a caboose)!
Kind of knowing how the Tiger feels!
We were feeling a little tired too!
Jayden was definitely over it

Honestly though! We had a great day, make that 2, at Dubbo Zoo!
and if you mention McDonalds for Lunch, its an absolute reviver!

..and Happy Birthday Jaydo, I cant believe your 8!
I love you to infinty and beyond....

Jaydo's Theory of Evolution!

Jack loves sharks, pirates and dinosaurs!
Especially he loves T-rex's!
Today he wanted to know if they were real?
Jayden stepped in to answer
"Jack, Trex's WERE real, but there not anymore, because they're all dead! We call that being extinct! So I guess they're still real, but because they're dead and extinct they dont exist anymore. And Jack! Did you know? That when the dinosaurs were around there were no people, just monkeys and apes, and they somehow turned into people! And thats when the aborigines started living in Australia,
Monkeys and Apes had brown fur and thats why the aborigines have brown skin".
 Jack,did you know, thats where we live, in Australia!
.. eventually there were white people too, I think that happened when they invented TV and we didn't go outside very much anymore!"
Gotta love a childs perspective of the world
For Trex and Dinosaur fans we have Dinosaur Train shorts and backpacks coming soon! Toot Toot!

Coming Soon!!

I am in the process of opening a big cartel store,

3600 fabrics drastically reduced!

This is the newest message from my New Favourite fabric source,
Be still my beating heart...
I dont get excited anymore about shoe catalogues, or the latest Portman's enews, I can shop Etsy, Madeit, Ebay, Facebook at home wearing my falling apart uggies and trackie daks
But a fabric sale, I love them, I haven't looked at the 3600 drastically reduced, because I kind of shopped last night and bought more of this

and this
I also bought a very pretty fairy print for the girls, for hats, like these
No More Looking, No more Shopping
the neighbours are starting to talk about the Postman...

For some reason its a hard word to spell!
I have tried so many versions over the last few months of facebooking and blogging, I also noticed a lot of others trying their own versions, too!
So I googled it,  D.E.F.I.N.A.T.E.L.Y should have done it months ago, turns out there are pages, forums, discussions... so many of us apparently get it wrong!
I got it wrong!, its
and I definitely have the cutest kids!

Talking Tablets

My father used to call my brother, Talking Tablets!
He also used to refer to people who talked alot of shit, as having verbal diarrhoea, which has provided many years of laughing since I told my best friend at seven, after a fight, that I didnt care if she was my friend or not because my Dad said she had Purple Diarrhoea!
But the point of this blogpost is this, I have my own Talking Tablets, we'll call her Talking Tablets2!
See I even have a photo of her talking!
While I am sewing I love listening to Jack and Hannah play, I love that they have each other and they both have such amazing imaginations! But today Jack wanted to play Wee so Hannah sat on the lounge with her pretend mobile phone and had a chat with her pretend friend for over half an hour!
They talked about clothes, Thankgod they didn't talk about boys, they had an argument, but Hannah didnt tell her she had purple diarrhoea!
So if she can talk to a pretend someone on a pretend phone, imagine the bills she could rack up on a real mobile talking to a real person.. or pretend?

Spotty Sun Hats now listed on Madeit
To All Fellow Mothers of Girls, Have Fun!
