Reasons to cook food,

I hate cooking.

It's a chore for me. I'd rather clean the bathroom.

Swift Jim has been working very VERY long hours for the past year and that means it is often just me and the munchkins eating together.

I hate cooking. Did I mention that already?

So the kids have been eating a lot of sandwiches, eggs and baked beans for tea. Or takeaway.

I hate cooking.

Now I am trying to figure out why? Why do I hate it so much. I'm sure I never used to hate it this much!

Can you help me find reasons to cook for my family? Because I have hit a wall.

A new blog!

I have decided to keep my 1 2 3 4 blog seperate to my For Fun and Fancy blog. I have faithful friends who read my blog for various reasons, so now they can choose which blog they would prefer to read (or both).

For Fun and Fancy

Enjoy :)

Being a parent...

Sometimes involves doing things that you really don't want to do.

Miss Ella's hair was getting quite long. You may remember my post quite some time ago about her slow growing hair. Now by quite long I mean, it had just reached just below her shoulder. The longest it has ever been.

There were however 3 small problems...
1. She sucked her hair the time. Which is gross. It matts the hair and makes it smelly. Gross.
2. She screamed blue murder when tried to brush it.
3. She wouldn't keep it tied up.

So a number of threats had been made over several months that if she kept it up I would have to chop it off.... She desperately had been wanting long hair like her friend from kindy. You can see where this is going!

There comes a time when a mother needs to follow through on a threat [or in this case several threats]...

:( She said to me during the haircut "I will never ever suck my hair again".
Lesson learnt. Good.

She seems to like it which is a bonus, it is awefully cute!
{don't look too closely, I had to fix it up in the morning after i saw the dodgyness lol}
I guess being a "jack of all trades" comes in handy from time to time ...

Once again my blog has been neglected. But I don't suppose anyone has noticed anyway!

Not really sure which way to go with my blog ... It seems to me that my regular readership has lost interest.

Probably doesn't help that I don't post often enough and it's probably not interesting anyway.

Do I keep going with 1234 or do I convert to solely being about For Fun and Fancy?
