Dinner last night

Dinner last night was sauerkraut and sausages, made with C’s grandmother’s old Lithuanian recipe. Very yummy. But please note Monkey Boy’s contribution on the left. Garlic bread and macaroni. Also quite delicious.

Coming out of the fog

This is very, very hard. I haven’t been sure how much to make public; I tend to keep my personal stuff very close, partly due to fears of being judged. But I think that writing about things is going to be a big part of the journey I’m now on, and possibly really [...]

Awake at 3AM? Might as well blog.

For Monkey Boy’s birthday in June we gave him a little kitchen. The little fridge and stove were mine as a child (my Grandad made them for me), and we bought a set of pots and pans, as well as the Melissa & Doug Cutting Food Set. We also included a hand-me-down plastic [...]

CSA – back to it!

I have missed our farm fresh veggies so much over the last two weeks. And for more reasons than just taste. If I ever needed proof of just how far we’ve come in changing our eating habits, the two weeks in Nova Scotia were it.
We stayed at my in-laws, and their cupboards look [...]

Fantasy versus reality

Do you ever worry that it’s the idea of something, rather than the something itself that interests you? I have so many fantasies and ideas of how I want to live my life, but I seem to have a problem when it comes to actually living it. I prefer to read and dream [...]

Did you ever have one of those days where you spread chaos wherever you go?
So far today I have:

Bounced Monkey Boy’s head off a door frame
Opened a car door into Monkey Boy’s face
Played “push our foreheads together” with Monkey Boy in the grocery cart, then straightened up without realising how hard he was pushing against [...]
