Its a Girl!

Published by under Parenting Stuff

Our little girl, Emily was born on 19th Feb.  It all happened pretty quickly and she popped out in the bath.  We did hypnobirthing as we did with Ben 2 years ago, and I can not recommend it highly enough.  If you want to stay in control, have a natural, gentle and positive birth experience you need to check out hypnobirthing – it has worked really well for me twice.

I think I might go into hybernation for a while now as I cope with a newborn and a toddler.  I will be back on line when I have a spare minute!

Well, I am all ready to pop!  Being a few days away from 40 weeks – the house is clean, the freezer is packed full, I have finished work and am now just enjoying a few days to myself (while Ben is in Day Care) to relax and get ready.  I will post news of the new baby once he/she arrives and I have enough time or energy to update this blog….

Five05 – New Outdoors Shop in Sydney

Published by under General

While I was visiting Sydney over the Christmas Holidays I came across a great new outdoors shop called Five05: Best Value Outdoors.  It is in the heart of the city, on Kent Street and has a huge stock of camping, hiking and outdoors clothes, shoes and equipment.  It has an ice room – so if you are planning a trip to the Himalayas and know you will be in freezing conditions you can try on a jacket, pants and beanie step into the ice room and find out if the jacket will really keep you warm or not!  Better to find out how warm the jacket is while you are in sunny Sydney than to wait until you have trekked all the way to base camp…..You can find Five05 on the web or pop into the shop at 505 Kent Street Sydney.
