Zoe Boomer Fashion Shoot

I had the opportunity to do a bit of modelling last week, eek! The designer is Zoe Boomer and the photographer is Nica. Two very talented ladies. Check out Zoe's website for her her SS12 collection. It seems I have an aversion to looking straight at the camera, or maybe I'm just not posting the ones where I do? Hmm.

It was nice to get a break from the 'I'm a mum and I have my child's snot rubbed into my clothes' look. Even though it made it all the more difficult to return the mucus look :o)

Someone to care for, to be there for I have you two.

Upon my first ever viewing of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang this morning, I became entranced with this song. I think It might become our theme song, so sweet. I wanted to share it with you guys:

They seemed to be pretty entranced too:

(the "he's such a lovely lonely man" song made me gag though, a lot)

Goin' to the zoo...

We are VIP, card carrying, zoo addicts. A year pass comes in very handy when you only live 10 minutes away from a truly awesome zoo, it's an almost weekly activity. Here's a little peek at today's trip, Spring was in the air and we left our winter coats behind, yay!
(btw, i'm not a hunchback, I just have the ergo and a backpack on my back. Anything to avoid taking a pram/buggy/stroller. bah)
This little guy did tons of walking today (he insists on the backpack) and got the life scared out of him by a big ol' wild turkey.

Molly and Bon Iver

Molly's commentary on this video:

1. Where's his face?
2. Oh, he has a hat on, like a cat.
3. (When she realises its a sad song) where are his friends?
4. (When I was singing along) Mummy you don't have hairy cheeks like that man. You just have nice little cheeks.

All very good points.

Remember me? the not so faithful blogger has returned. Sorry for all the radio silence. I was busy all of December with all those crazy December things and then right slap bang on Christmas day we began a month long marathon of sickness. I scoffed down my Christmas dinner to the sound of Finchums screaming and Molly into a 'boke bucket'. Not very merry. With the coughing came the sleep deprivation and with the sleep deprivation came the grumpiness. Then all three of us got the mother of all eye infections which was horrendous and to top it all off, just as we were nearly better....chickenpox for Molly!

There have been many moments over the last 4-6 weeks that I wanted to sit down and right a blog, but it would have been terribly gloomy. Now that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I'm getting more than 1 hour blocks of sleep in the night, I realise that perhaps life isn't really that bad.

In other news, shortly before Christmas I got myself an iPhone. Swooooon, I am in love. Here is a sampling of the 50 billion instagram photos I take everyday.
