Popping My Head Over the Parapet

Popping my head over the parapet


Hmm. Taps microphone. Ah, bonjour, you gorgeous Planetarians! How are you all? It's been a whopping 9 weeks since I last posted. That has been the strangest experience. It's relieved me of pressure and allowed me to direct my energies to the real Planet Baby. But I've missed our interaction keenly. I've realised how blogging both drains, and invigorates, me.
So I've forayed back into Blogland in the past few days, lurking, most uncharacteristically. I'm feeling rather shy! And I must admit I'm having the teensiest trouble finding my blark again (Bron's fabulous word for 'blogging spark'!).
So much has occurred on Planet Baby in the interim and I scarcely know how to catch up. I know you don't expect me to but I'd like to give it a whirl as I relish marking our family events here in this little space.
I'll use photos I've shared with that beguiling mistress called Instagram (find me here). I guess life is still very stressful here (no new job for Mr PB yet, very limited finances etc) so I'm trying to conserve my energy. So less words and more photos will be the norm here for the next little while, okay? Right, let's go!
Joshua's 7th birthday party
Our big boy chose Pokemon for this year's theme. Here he is with one of his costumed guests.
Popping my head over the parapet Thanks to a photo on Sophie's blog, I whipped up these Oshawott cupcakes. They passed muster, thankfully. Popping my head over the parapet India's 5th birthday party

Miss India had a girly pink party and asked for a pink flamingo cake! I totally winged it. The result?

She revelled in spending time with her girlfriends. They were all cuties.

Joshie has been losing a few teeth lately, to his utter delight. Here's the gap-toothed wonder.

Popping my head over the parapet Talk about inflation! We only received 20 cents back in the 1970s. And yes, the Tooth Fairy had to return the next night to retrieve said tooth!
The 175th Royal Hobart Regatta

In accordance with family tradition, we trooped off to the 175th Royal Hobart Regatta on the waterfront. The clowns greeted us - the same ones Mr PB and I used to play with in our youth.

Popping my head over the parapet After the boys had a spin on the dodgem cars, we remembered to take a rare photo with me in it.

Popping my head over the parapet And just for you, Bron, I videoed some woodchopping!
That's it for now. I'll be back soon to show you what I've been up to with Planet Joy, the pixies starting the new year and other goodies. It's great to be back! Photobucket
