Just a couple of photos of my gorgeous boy to share...
Doing drills at soccer practice.And at the park. He was funny at soccer on Monday. He has a bit of an issue with losing especially when they are playing cowboys and indians and we've had a few tears over that game. So anyway, the same happened this week, he got out and came sulking off the field with a lip dropped so low he could have tripped on it. He came over to me and I asked him if he wanted a drink of water, passed him the bottle and told him it's just a game blah blah blah. He told me "I just wanted a drink of water, that was why I was so sad". Cheeky little bugger.

And here are just a couple of photos of Jack, the first one is him talking like a mouse.And looking cheeky sitting on the crossbar of his swing set. He thinks he's pretty clever.Two posts in one day = no life!! LOL, just kidding, I just love showing off my gorgeous boy.
So after I cleaned up our bedroom I did a bit of organising and re-arranging in our bathroom. Our wall colour was a mistint that picked up cheaply and when I first painted it I thought it looked a bit poo-ey (our toilet is painted the same colour too) but I soon grew to like it.
I really like our white floating shelf. The contrast with the wall colour really makes it stand out. Unfortunately it houses all the junk we use on a daily basis like moisturiser and stuff but the other end is just pretty stuff.I decided last night that I'd have a nice relaxing candlelit bath so I filled the tub, popped in a Lush bath bomb, got a book, put on a face mask...& then it went downhill. I couldn't get the lighter to work (I think it got wet) and then I was just about to hop in when in comes a little visitor. "It was nice of you to make me a pink bath Mummy" says Jack. "Sorry sweetie, the bath is for me" I say. "Can I hop it too" replies Jack. "It will be too hot, when it cools down I'll call you and you can come in" I say wishfully. Bye bye relaxing bath. I closed my eyes and tried to pretend I was in a nice relaxing tub in some far off resort but it was a bit hard. Yabber, yabber, yabber, splash, splash, splash. Firstly he stuck his arms right in the bath whilst wearing a long sleeved shirt so off it came. Then he stuck his arms and his chest in so off came the singlet and then a couple of droplets had gone on his pants so off they came. Well I couldn't just leave him standing there starkers and cold could I so of course I added some cold, let out some water and Jack jumped in with me. Next time I'll wait until he's in bed!

I work on Monday's now but I finish at 4 so I can take Jack to soccer training(if you could call it that). He is so funny to watch it makes me smile so much. He strides up to one of the coaches during the practice to show him his new soccer socks and then stops the other coach mid mini game to show him the scratch he has on his hand from the cat. So cute.
Well I'm off to do some blog hopping.
Catch u later.

Cheeky little bugger.
Jack and I were just heading out the door to go somewhere the other day and when we got outside Kitti-Mae had a mouse cornered in the garden so I put Jack in the car and put Kitti inside and we headed out. When we got home I was bringing in some shopping and had the door open while Jack said hello to the dogs. Just as he walked in Kitti scooted past him with the mouse!! I stuck her in the bathroom and went to get something to try to catch the mouse in. Jack thought it might have been Ratatouille but I'm pretty sure it was just your run of the mill wild mouse and not a culinary genius in a mouse disguise. Anyhoo, the little mousey scooted under the door to my scrap room before I could get it. I was cursing the cat all day. My scrap room is a MESS!!! It's our junk storage area and there is stuff everywhere. Finding a mouse in there would be like finding a needle in a haystack. So I was cranky, imaging all my papers being mouse distressed which I guess could be a new scrap technique. Well luckily we were awoken at 1.30 this morning by Miss Kitti who had trapped said mouse in our bedroom (well I'm telling myself it's the same mouse anyway, I'm sure we don't have mice in our house). So I went and gabbed the essential mouse trapping tools...some tupperware, a tea towel and a pair of tongs and then my brave and talented mouse trapping husband caught mr mousey with the aid of Kitti-Mae. So 1.30 this morning I was out on my front lawn in the freezing cold flicking a mouse out of my tupperware!! At least it's out of the house.
I watched a couple of movies last night, Bride Wars and Waitress. Bride Wars was really good, a bit immature and kitchy but a good fun movie all the same. The Vera Wang wedding dress in the movie was soooooooooo gorgeous(well both the dresses were gorgeous)
I've said it before but if I was getting married now there is NO way I could ever pick a style of anything after seeing this site, Style Me Pretty. There are just too too many beautiful things on that site. If you're planning a wedding you should definately check it out but be warned you may be so inspired by all the gorgeous ideas on the site that you might and up doubling your wedding budget!! So if you're after a funny lighthearted chick flick it's a good one.
The Waitress well not so funny and lighthearted. Not a bad movie but now I NEED pie!! I have been doing quite a bit of cooking lately. Feeling very inspired with Masterchef being on every night. I'm going to try out a copycat recipe I found for Kate's Chocolate Tart with Passionfruit Syllabub but I've got to organise a girls night first so Charlene can try some too. Anyway back to the movie, as I said not bad, a bit slow and a tad depressing with of course an uplifting Hollywood ending. But the pies in the movie!!! YUMMO!! They looked delicious so this afternoon I am going to make pie! I don't know which type yet but I'm definately going to make pie.
Speaking of copycat recipes, I made a copycat recipe of an american seasoning called Old Bay. The other night I made Shrimp Scampi for dinner and tonight I'm going to try out another recipe I found on the site, Shrimp and Sweetcorn Fritters. I hope it's as nice as it sounds.
Well, I'm off to grab a couple of groceries, catch u later.
