Stella is 15 weeks and 4 days

People keep asking me how old Stella is and I say three months but in fact she is closer to four months. I will say it again but I just can’t believe how fast time is flying by. Yesterday was my Mum’s 60th birthday. I wish we could all be there to celebrate with her […]

Cubby house

Sorry, this is another photo post but one I have been meaning to catch up on. Tonight Amy went to bed with a temperature of 38.67 degrees. I managed to get a dose of panadol into her before she fell asleep and her temp has come down to 37.56 so I hope she has a […]

Stella is 8 weeks old – Part I

Stella Margaret White at 8 weeks old – Part I, the medical stuff. Stella turned 8 weeks old on Wednesday and will be 2 months old on Tuesday, the day after my sister arrives from South Africa for a lightning, one week visit. I am so excited for my sister coming, its been hard watching […]


Sunday 24th May – Circular Quay for coffee with friends from the UK via Perth. (its scary that I still look pregnant in this photo. That bump is actually Stella, asleep in the sling!) Ron started sniffing yesterday and Amy went to bed and coughed sporadically through out the night. Sigh. Thankfully my cold is […]

Pregnancy update – 40 weeks and 5 days

40 weeks and 5 days I forgot to post the remaining pics from our spontaneous photoshoot a couple of weeks ago. I really must remember to take another couple of belly shots tonight. To be honest, I never expected to be taking photos of my belly at this late stage, I thought I would be […]

Put your hands up and go into labour, not

40 weeks and 3 days I have had lots of suggestions from well meaning people about how to get this labour started. What no one has suggested was being involved in an armed robbery whilst out for coffee with a friend this morning. The brief story is this, Amy and I met up with a […]

Pregnancy update 40 weeks and 2 days

40 weeks and 2 days: Still here, my cold is much better although my cough is nasty so I think I might go to the Dr tomorrow just to check its not turning into anything horrible. Next Ob app on Thursday, my Mum arrives on Sunday! Your guess is as good as mine as to […]

Still pregnant

Happy Easter everyone! I know that I shouldn’t go missing online when people are wondering if I have gone into labour. Just a quick heads up for those of you who are bothered, when I don’t update the blog, I might still send a quick twitter, so take a look over there to the right […]

Still coughing

UPDATED: to add that Amy has bronchitis and some nasty sounding crackles in her left lung. There is a horrible whooping cough going round so the Dr has prescribed her a 5 day course of Erythromycin and recommended a cough treatment that actually works. Ten minutes after her first dose Amy started coughing up lovely […]

Night coughing

Nothing much to say because I don’t really have anything nice to say. I woke up in a terrible mood yesterday and am struggling to shake it despite glorious autumn weather. A couple of things that are bugging me, without going into too much detail: my obstetrician is away for a week so now I […]

Amy is 2 years and 9 months

Amy is exactly two years and nine months old today. I need to write a quick update about where she is at in her life, before it changes forever and she becomes a big sister. I used to be good at updating Amy’s milestones but since she turned two I seem to have run out […]


After another day spent at home in our pj’s we were all feeling a little grouchy on Saturday morning. Ron’s cold had returned, his back was sore and he was feeling pretty miserable. I was feeling marginally better although still coughing with a deep rattling sound that caused an ache deep inside my belly and […]

Playgroup Christmas party

This is what Santa wears on his feet Downunder! We had a suprise visit for the children at our playgroup Christmas party last week. Amy’s face was priceless when Santa came in, she was really excited. Unfortunately she was last called to go up and fetch her present and the novelty had worn off a […]

Pregnancy catch up

Monday 8th December – 22 weeks pregnant. Big pregnancy catch up! We had our 19 week scan and it was as simple and easy as could be. The technician whizzed around my belly and pronounced our baby perfect in every way and then asked us if we had any questions. So long as its all […]

A bad day

Yesterday was a bad day, Amy is not showing any visible symptoms of her cold/virus from earlier in the week but is acting like a small child possessed. We are battling each other on every little thing, every task, meal, snack, nap, nappy change. Everything is a fight in the White house this week and […]

Rugby energy

While Mum was here she cut down and sewed up a mini rugby jersey for Amy to wear when we go and watch Ron play. Its the most adorable thing and she loves it! Everyone wanted to know where I got it last weekend at rugby and couldn’t believe it when I said Mum made […]

A brief history of our UK trip so far

A brief history of our UK trip so far: Weddings attended – 1 – congratulations to the lovely Carol and Stewart! Visits to Harrods – 3 – we were staying right behind it so even bought our loo roll there! Number of rush hour tube journeys – 2 – two too many, Ron and I […]

Front gardening

Amy has had a two day cold but is feeling better now. We are so lucky that she is such a healthy child and even when her nose is running and she keeps sneezing she is still sweet to be around. Me not so much now that I have caught the cold. Ugh, just in […]

Hand, foot and mouth virus – the mystery unfolds

Right, so as it turns out Amy wasn’t teething last week, in fact she had Hand, Foot and Mouth Virus. The reason why I now know this? The coxsackie virus A16 is exhibited by mouth ulcers in adults. Aahhaa, its all falling into place now, the mysterious teething symtoms without the teeth, not eating, irritability […]

Cockroaches and cooking

I was just sitting here wondering what I was going to write about on the blog tonight, when a giant cockroach sauntered across my peripheral vision. Of course I screamed like a frightened child and Ron came running, already armed with wads of kitchen towel. Even he blanched a little when he saw the size […]

Swimming and a mouth mystery

I have horrible ulcers on my tongue at the moment, not sure why. I just started taking vitamins because I have been feeling tired and run down and then POW just when the vitamins should kick in, I get a mouthful of ulcers. So I am sthpeekin ike thith and very uncomfortable. In other news […]

Unhappy Amy – Part II

You know what this means right? Another bad day in the White house. Hmmm. Amy is drooling, dribbling, clutching at her mouth, off her food and crying ALL THE TIME. I guess its another episode of teething. Its strange though because I really wasn’t expecting this much drama for the next teeth, I should have […]

Unhappy Amy

Amy was not herself today, by ‘herself’ I mean sweet, funny, relaxed, fun, enjoyable. Instead she was tired, grumpy, irritable, short tempered, whiney and annoying. Yes, she is annoying, she is my child and sometimes I am allowed to admit that she is annoying. And whiney, did I mention the whining? So today was a […]

Sore throats and overseas visitors

Ok, so its been nearly a week since I last posted! I have an excuse, its called Pharangitis and it involves pus and my throat! Ugh, its not very nice, in fact I have to say that seeing as though this is my third infection this winter, this one is nasty! I have actually spent […]
