a photo that I’m proud of August 26, 2010

Posted by sunflower71 in Life with 3 princesses, The Gallery.

I don’t like being in pictures and I don’t like how I look in pictures (because that’s how bad I often look in real life).  And I often complain of how tough my life with my 3 princesses is but my of my, I’m very proud of my family.  Here we 4 females are, at the beach last week….and my man – the most patient man in the world, managed to get all 4 of us looking good – anyone who had tried to get chidren to pose for photos can attest to this.

So thanks Tara at Sticky Fingers for this promt that provided me with the best of excuses to share this photo that is very dear to me and of which I’m very proud.  And I love participating in the Gallery so much that I’m putting the badge up on the side.


One down… many more to go June 28, 2010

Today was the first day of summer holidays for the girls.  The school gates will open again for them on September 28!

This morning, I decided to take them to the open market we have in this town every Monday.  There are all sorts of stalls selling food, cheap horrible hand bags, jeans, linen, shoes – the type that make you feel blisters all over your toes just by looking at them, cheap accessories etc.  All in all it was ok.  All 3 were perfectly well-behaved and none got lost.  They were not very impressed with the experience.  For The Princess  it was too chaotic.  For The Cherub it was too hot (it was the best excuse for her to keep asking for a new wet one every 5 minutes to wipe her face – her absolutely favourite hobby is playing with wet ones).  The Star slept through out the trip.  The highlight for The Princess was when she bought herself and The Cherub some hair bands.  For The Cherub the best part was concluding our outing at our favourite cafe’ 5th Avenue where she orders herself cheese toast and gets a plate ‘as big as the world’ full of salad and of course her 2 toast triangles.

It was not a completely altruistic ideas the above, though.  I needed something in particular for my self… a white cotton hat…. that I knew, the market was the simplest place to get one for a decent price.

Now this hat will be one important item in my luggage when I leave for a well deserved break….more about this next time.

It starts getting complicated June 10, 2010

With the kids on half days….I’m at the school gate again at 1145…. and the heat, my time has really disappeared.  In a couple of weeks it will be even worse when school will be officially over on June 28th.

Many things are happening, and I’m also finally started to document these with photos but the time to actually blog about them just isn’t there.

I’m definitely in need to time reorganisation and maybe a few energy boosting drinks to get me through the day in a better shape. Any ideas?
