A diary of our family's house building project in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. Also my ponderings on family life, living with Asperger's Syndrome, running an ebay business & a place to share my photography.

Friday, 23 January 2009


We are back to our weekly routine of work, daycare, playgroup, early intervention & the occasional late afternoon/evening having dinner at the block. Our days are way too full, our nights are way too short. Kim & I both suffer from insomnia, more than ever before. We are both always tired & juggle the tasks of getting up with the kids at 6.30 every morning (or earlier), taking care of the night wakers & staying up to catch up on dishes or my ebay work. I discovered Valerian capsules from the health food store last week, they work! I got 7 hours sleep with only short interruptions but was then sleepy the whole of the next day. So I'll be saving those for desperate times!

We have just had 9 days of rain & are expecting another 3 or 4. Kim's working on more windows & going well. 

I am ebaying like mad & also trying to edit photos from my 1st photo shoot of a friend's baby & 3 other children, which grew to include my friend's sister, her partner & their 4 month old. it was good fun & I'm pretty happy with the results, although I'm not happy with the sharpness (or lack of) of a lot of them.

Hi Toni, the photos are great - i would definately pay you to take photos of my little man - just a shame we live too far away! I especially like the one of the baby lying on the cot type thing. All the best and happy birthday to Ivy for sunday. Shelley
