Bitten!

Tell us your bite story!

My poor girl was bitten by something over the weekend and by Monday morning the bite was swollen, red, hot and sore – obviously infected. We’ve speculated all week about what might have bitten Izzy. Was it just a mozzie bite that she scratched and let some nasty bugs in? Or maybe a white tail […]

Still Renovating

But Why?

Why does my toddler insist on walking around with a mesh bag over his head? Why do I start watching obscure foreign language movies late at night when I can barely read the subtitles I am so tired? Why do Taylor Swift songs stick in my brain for ever….ever, getting back together… Why does it […]
