inthelightofthesun Last nights dinner for one was a muesli bar eaten in solitude on the toilet. It is bucketing down with rain this morning and I enjoyed the 3 minutes of listening to it in bed that I managed to snatch before being kicked out of bed by the hungry hordes. The TV is on but I have at least made myself a substantial breakfast and given myself a pep talk. Let's do this day!! 1d
  •   manda_paino Hooray for new days 1d
  •   go_jojo Those little pep talks can make all the difference before tackling the day! I do it frequently myself 1d
  •   myrtles Mine was bubbles and birthday cake cause after school activities and late working husband had me sulking 😐 1d
  •   myrtles Also everyone's texts etc that said "hope you get spoilt" didn't help!! Seriously who gets spoilt on their birthdays. Why say it?!!!!! Sorry for the vent. Now I hope you seize the day by its balls!! 1d
  •   littlepapayastudio Woah! Amazing. Dinner last night sounds hilarious 1d
  •   inthelightofthesun @myrtles oh people saying that are the WORST!!!!!! I didn't realise that was your cake yesterday - yummo and happy belated. My husband thought a haircut was considered a present on my birthday so I spent the evening in tears too. Haircut was bad to top it off ah dear, what can you do but eat your own cake eh?! X 1d
  •   myrtles Hahaha. Gold. My did manage to buy me a new camping chair on the way home from work yesterday bless him. Although I think because he was getting a quote for new mud tyres at the 4x4 dealer 😐 1d
  •   into_the_fold Hey lovely @inthelightofthesun ... Can you send me your contact number? My courier needs to get in touch with you xx 22h

inthelightofthesun Sitting in the sunshine at the scooter park, dreaming about a pillow and shutting my eyes for a while.... Bet you I'm still up at 12 tonight and cursing myself again come morning time... Curse of being a night owl 🌝 3d
  •   inthelightofthesun @alissapat oh it was almost yours!!! I thought about giving it to you as a baby bag at the shower but then I made a few tiny mistakes and thought nah... Then when your mates went in for a fancy special nappy bag I was glad I didn't bring my homemade number 3d
  •   inthelightofthesun @myrtles husband falls asleep on the couch by 9 most nights but not by choice I usually finish off his glass of scotch then and pour myself another! 3d
  •   alissapat Oh I would've loved it but your gifts where very generous. The boats are hanging near the window. 3d
  •   littlepapayastudio Homemade happy bags RULE 3d
  •   ladymmoss Photographs beautifully! 3d
  •   littlepapayastudio Errr that's nappy. 3d
  •   twothirdssky The bag is really lovely, looks like it would fit two helmets and a skateboard! Now, let's talk about those Paisley tights! I am a night owl and early bird all rolled into one - and tired all day. 3d
  •   theselittlewindows happy nappy bags! I like. 3d

inthelightofthesun It was my turn to do morning tea at playgroup this morning and I was so touched that Jan, the lovely lady who makes us tea and coffee, saved me a brownie bite to gobble when I got back home. Took a whole lot of effort to photograph it before inhaling it 3d
  •   shell_mcclure Oh man, I could've used this after playgroup this morning, crazy!! I baked a lemon slice and now waiting for it to cool.... 3d
  •   inthelightofthesun Yum i love lemon slice! @shell_mcclure has it cooled yet?! 3d
  •   shell_mcclure Yep! I just snorted a line!!! It was more cake like than slice but it still did the trick!! 3d
  •   lyndeljlarby Sad to have missed these this morning! 3d

  •   maverickwebb Lol @inthelightofthesun I certainly don't!! After an afternoon of big tears (some of my own), I was going to message you and ask HOW THE HELL DO YOU COPE?! I need you to tell ME how to cope!!! Xx another drink tonight? X 4d

  •   inthelightofthesun @maverickwebb oh Hun. I'm useless to you except a shoulder to cry on! I got NO idea!!! I was just having a talk to a foot stomping, tears streaming Wolf about overreacting when his brother nicked his scooter when he was weeing in a bush and then I turn around and Torsten has crawled under a construction site barrier and is covered in wet concrete... I yelled. Honestly, I overreacted. And I'm thinking I'm not qualified to raise good people 3d

inthelightofthesun I made a thing! I liked making it so much I want to make more! This one has already been christened with leaky strawberries and leaky undies/shorts. Question - do you use fabric bags for everyday use and should I bother making them for sale? Unsure if there is a market/an already saturated market for fabric shoulder bags... 5d
  •   inthelightofthesun @littlepapayastudio I can. I just liked the leather but maybe I could make it so you could choose either option? 4d
  •   littlepapayastudio More pattern spew the better in my books! Solid colour look cool too .... 4d
  •   shell_mcclure I can't really see how the leather is attached but can you make it removeable so you can take it off to wash? 4d
  •   nams32 The bag is perfect size for me, fits my purse, a water bottle, cardigan, book and spare nappy! And having it open means I can always get into easily with an arm full of Bebe. @inthelightofthesun 4d
  •   ladymmoss Looks to me like you've got some serious interest already! Everything you do is beautiful this will be a success no matter what 4d
  •   littlepapayastudio Totally! For me though I think washability is key cos we are total grots I'm sure there are clean mothers out there ...... 4d
  •   candicelovesredwine If you ever want to trial them in a market setting let me know... It's a pretty extraordinary location and really kid friendly; I fun day out xx 4d
  •   metaemotions ️ I'd buy one. Love Japanese fabric. Go for it. You could sell them on Instagram 😀 4d

inthelightofthesun Shhh mum's the word! It's brandy and dry o'clock here for me and my little friend. I reckon I've earned it after this morning's mammoth solo parenting effort where I wrangled two kids, two scooters, a bike and a double pram with flat tyres to the bike track, running one end to the other helping one get his bike going while the other peed his pants... 6d

inthelightofthesun I'm usually allergic to hashtags but it's for a cause I'm pretty passionate about - #wearitpurple because all kids should feel safe and accepted regardless of their (or their parents) sexual or gender identity. 1w

inthelightofthesun Every day is laundry day. Apparently one of my ancestors was the original Peter of Peters Ice Cream. Probably a good thing that not every day is ice cream day (but I'm not entirely convinced ) 1w
