wovenspirit This afternoon was an endless round of 2.5yr old battles and tantrums... so in the interests of hardcore discipline and demonstrating who out of the two of us is boss, we went out #sakurabloom wandering, flower patting and ice-cream eating ;) 2d
  •   mooseandbird I adore your honesty. May tomorrow be a peaceful day xx 2d
  •   wovenspirit Oh you make me sound awesome @inthelightofthesun !! the truth is it had been battle stations since first light (he wanted rice crackers for breakfast) and I just ran out of steam and did what I would want someone to do for me if I was having a shit day - take me outside for a walk and feed me ice-cream ;) haha!! 2d
  •   wovenspirit Strong willed little people who know what they want are such a challenge @littlepapaya ! Ru was generally pretty easy going up until 2... and since then it has been a balancing act... he is such a physically capable kid who can do most things himself, and he gets pretty peeved at what he can't do and/or what he perceives as restrictions (either put in place by me, or the world) on his abilities. He's as quick as lighting at grasping how to do things/processes etc, but at heart he's still so little emotionally, and sometimes those days catch up on him... and I see how overwhelmed he gets... I certainly get frustrated and lose my patience, but I try hard to reign it back in and then help us both find perspective, especially after weeks of sickness, when I notice these kinds of days are at their height! Like you said, fresh air and snacks (when everyone is well enough) is such a good go-to fix all xx 2d
  •   wovenspirit Thanks @saskiaandchris ! Much easier with only 1, three is a juggling act and a half, so many needs in the mix, sometimes (often!) pulling in different directions (my sister has 3 little ones, I've learned from watching her!) ~ 7-7 is a long haul, especially with a bub! Hope there was coffee in your day ;) Here's to a new (tantrum free!) day tomorrow for all of us tantrum-weary Mama's!! :) 2d
  •   saskiaandchris @wovenspirit exactly ~ you hit the nail on it's head ~ today was hard with Pepper wanting lots of breast feeds & not sleeping well, overtired & then my boys didn't want to be outside without their mumma with them there, so I shut the fly screen on them so I could get sanity & a touch of housework done ---tantys all round ahhh the things we go through! I really should have gone out like you did, there's always tomorrow! Xx 2d
  •   littleearthstories Beautifully played. Oh the tantrums whilst pregnant is super hard work, so exhausting. Hang in there. I hope today is easier for you both. xx 1d
  •   wovenspirit It always does @sailingintheclouds :) I sent your little package today Rachel, sorry it's taken so long!! I hope you love it :) xxx 1d

wovenspirit He's also a multi-tasking baby Daddy ~ morning tea munching and baby wearing ;) 2d
  •   wovenspirit #sakurabloom @littlenoggi :) gorgeous hat Sheree! xx 2d
  •   littleearthstories Go Ru! Same colour sling I chose for my summer babe. 2d
  •   lovesprout Beautiful. 2d
  •   kaboodles_ 2d
  •   wovenspirit Oh he was so cute @littleearthstories ! Yes, I've been wanting the twilight colour, this was the perfect excuse :) I love the darker slings for everyday use... they hide more 'wear' ;) and I wanted a single layer for our soaring Summer temps - as much as I love a Tula/ergo, I found that Anaru nearly boiled in there as a newborn, and he was born mid-Feb, not at the start of Summer! I figure, nappy, sling, hat, we'll be good to go ;) 2d

wovenspirit A photo I took many years ago, my husband and his Grandfather, who has since passed... he is on my mind a lot this week, as his energy is all around us... he's a very traditional man... I ask him why he's here and he tells me gruffly, 'Checking up on my boys' ;) I find it so interesting how some people who have passed can still make their presence be felt so strongly... 7d
  •   thebarefootcrofter Love this xxx 7d
  •   hazelashe Energy cannot be destroyed, only transferred. Our borrowed matter returns to the earth, they are everywhere in every thing. I like to think of this often when I miss the sound of a voice I once loved xxxxx 7d
  •   earth_mamma @hazelashe xx how lovely that you have picked up on him Mietta xxx 7d
  •   motherloverdreamer They are always around if we just choose to listen 7d
  •   lililu_love7d
  •   dukekai I have touched on this b4 with u Mietta but every time I feel my nannas presence I find a feather at my feet or on my doorstep. Especially if I have an important decision to make. Feathers r the calling cards of the spirit world. I treasure these beautiful reminders that she is still close by. 6d

wovenspirit Raspberry and passionfruit muffins and half an hour of stitching... {thanks to an almost-unheard-of-these-days little person mid-morning nap!} 1w
  •   sailingintheclouds gorgeous as usual x 1w
  •   girlofcardigan Perfect. 1w
  •   morgsy1980 I have soooo many passionfruit. What recipe did you use for the muffs Mietta? 1w
  •   wovenspirit Same @morgsy1980 ! This is an old-fashioned wholemeal flour/raw sugar/butter/milk/egg recipe, with the raspberry and passionfruit mixed through and extra piled on top. You could probably substitute coconut sugar if you wanted... but not sure of a dairy replacement... If you're still keen for the recipe with dairy etc in it, I can pop it up here - its nice and basic, just let me know :) 1w
  •   gaiamasha63 Sweet 1w
  •   earth_mamma This I love 1w
  •   ninabagley lovely! 1w
  •   morgsy1980 I've been cooking with spelt flour but I also have whole meal plain & S/R. Would love the recipe. Just got another bag of passionfruit @wovenspirit - thankyou 3d
