Sunday Snippets 9-15 August

You know when your kids/spouse/dog says or does something funny, and you think “I’ve *totally* gotta blog that” but then it only works out at about 3 lines of a blog post and that’s just not enough so you just leave it and forget it ever happened? Well, that’s why I thought I’d start Sunday Snippets. You can write down and/or photograph something cute, funny or generally blogworthy that happens as it happens throughout the week, and every Sunday make it into a post. I figured since we’re all friends here in this bloggy community that maybe you might like to find out what others are up to as well!

  1. Follow me if you’re not already.
  2. Write your Sunday Snippets post.
  3. Get the button in the right sidebar over there to thwack onto your post.
  4. Add the link to your blog post (note I said POST, not just the blog url!) to the MckLinky at the bottom here.
  5. Read what some of your fellow bloggers have been up to, comment, and enjoy finding new people!
  6. Come back next Sunday and do it all over again. 🙂


Soo, I had a couple of weeks off there, it’s the summer holidays, what can I say!

We’ve had some great times this summer, despite the icky weather. Max has started trying to talk (more about that in another post where I sqwee about my clever lil boy!), Dean and I got engaged (!!! 😀 ), Zack has been a royal pain in the butt, but at least now when he wants something he comes up to me, snuggles in and says “Mummy, I just wanted to tell you that you’re the bestest mummy in the whole… wide… world!”.

He’s starting school on Wednesday and I cannot believe it!

So, we wanted to make sure that my his last few days of freedom and lazy days included at least one trip to the park, which is where we went today.

Now, normally taking the boys to the park means Zack running around like a loon and shouting “Mummy! Mummy! Muuuuum! Look at meeeee!”, but this time he seemed happy to run off to play with some kids he’d befriended, and then come back for juice/sandwiches.

The other thing that usually happens at the park is Max has a near-escape with kids on the swings. Not to disappoint, Dean had to drag him away at the last moment! However instead of constantly running back to them like he used to do, all it took was a firm (Mummy Voice) “Max, NO” and he would turn round and come back to sit with us!

Needless to say I’m very pleased with our relatively un-eventful trip to the park today! 🙂

And since I’ve been pretty much AWOL for the last couple of weeks, here are some photies I took while we were out today:

    Next week? That is early, we aren’t back here until the 31st, we seem to get much longer holidays than you. Best of luck, I hope it goes really well:) Jen (great photos btw)

    Hey….it’s me. Sorry I’ve been away too!

    I LOVE those photos, Dean is such a character and looks as though you all fit together perfectly Marilyn. You are looking so happy even if there are other things going on right now!

    Those are such amazing pics – remind me why you need a new camera?!

    Yay for Max – sounds like things are really picking up with him. I’m so pleased for you both.

    It’s tomorrow now!! I can’t wait! LOL 🙂

  7. August 17, 2010 / 1:48 pm

    Thanks, was good to have a couple of weeks ‘off’ though. 🙂

  8. August 17, 2010 / 1:53 pm

    I’m finding that some weeks are full of funny bits, and other just, aren’t!
    I’ve actually decided not to get the camera till next year – money better spent on Christmas! However I am waiting (im)patiently for the arrival of a new lens today! 🙂

    Thanks sweety! I’m pretty chuffed with the photos, it’s made me re-think getting the D90 for now. The money would be better saved for Christmas I think! So I’m waiting for a new lens to arrive today instead. 😀

  10. August 17, 2010 / 2:01 pm

    Yeah, about the camera… not going to get it till next year. Getting a new lens at some point today instead! The rest of the money will be well used for Christmas instead. 🙂

    Hooray for lazy days and trips to the park.

    Thanks Kate! We had a great time. 🙂

    Thanks, it’s by far my favourite too. 🙂
    I need to work on my PP a bit more, Zack’s portrait is over done, I know, but I’m getting there!
