Somebody stop me…

I found this online auction site for baby products a few months ago. At the time I didn’t really see anything interesting, but I’d pop in now & then to see what was there.

And then a couple weeks ago I saw somebody selling Baby Beehinds cheap…and it’s all gone downhill from there. We had two new Beehinds that I bought on eBay a few months ago; we now have five with another four on the way. I couldn’t help myself. They’re used, but I’m not bothered by that. A good wash and a day in the sun will kill anything that might be left behind.

I don’t even wanna give the URL out for fear that somebody else will beat me to the bargains. Now that’s pathetic.


Oh yes, and I’m never using disposables again. Even on trips, now that we have all these fitted ones, and wool covers and things, there’s not much need. The only time I can envision using disposables is if we were to lose our minds and try another 10-hour trip to Port Lincoln (or somewhere of similar distance) with an 11 week old baby.


{mosimage}Yeah, so I got to the end of yesterday, and Darrin came to bed a little while after me, and then I realised…oh, I didn’t blog today. And momentarily thought of getting up to blog for a few minutes, till my sensible side talked me out of it.

So this is a blog about forgetting to blog. I’ll try to post something more substantial later.


{mosimage}So before this trip to the US can materialize, we have to go to Melbourne and get Caleb’s Consular Report of Birth and his passport. Thus, here are our tentative plans for a trip there in the October school holidays.

Saturday 27th September: Leave home, drive to Horsham, Victoria, and stay the night.

Sunday 28th September: Horsham to Ballarat. See the Grampians.

Monday 29th September: Ballarat to Melbourne. Stay in Melbourne till Friday 3rd October. During this time, Darrin wants to go driving on some freeways, and I want to visit USA Foods and get some Dr Pepper, and of course we have to do Caleb’s paperwork as well.

Friday 3rd October: Leave Melbourne and drive to Geelong along the Great Ocean Road.

Saturday 4th October: Geelong to Warrnambool.

Sunday 5th October: Warrnambool to Mount Gambier, where we’ll finally get to check the Mount Gambier Fasta Pasta off our list (and we will have been to nearly all the South Australian ones).

Monday 6th October (Labour Day): Mount Gambier to home.

Amazing what the right size needles will do.

I made another pair of wool pants to go over Caleb’s nappies. And this one was made with smaller needles, and looks much more like the picture shown with the pattern. It’s just hanging to dry in the bathroom now after being lanolised this morning, and I’ll try it out tomorrow. Might even have pictures when I post about it next.

We didn’t plan that one very well….

So today was our dual birthday barbecue thingy. We told all the people we wanted to invite once. And that was it, basically. We told some of them a time, and others none. So we ended up having two mini-parties when the others showed up three hours later.

Yeah, so I think we’d better be more organised in two months when it’s Caleb’s turn for a birthday party….

I even BOUGHT a cake yesterday for $26 and forgot about it till almost everyone left. So we put it in the freezer and we’ll use it for Caleb’s birthday.

Oh, and everyone brought us chocolate. My teeth are rotting just at the thought of it….
