School break and selling Avon

Sunday 24 october 2009

We went to church today. Hubby doesn’t feel so well, but went to the front for prayer. I didn’t even notice it because I was on stage singing a worship song with the choir, while people were being prayed for and I didn’t look at the people who came to the front but was focusing on God.
He’s sleeping now. I’m trusting the Lord that he’ll feel better by tomorrow, because he has to go to work. He could’ve taken the day off since it’s a bank holiday, but he decided to work because they’ll pay him 200 percent.
Anyway, I’m sure he’ll be fine.
Dd1 is off for the whole week and I felt so relieved and as if I’m having a break myself. It’s not easy waking up early, getting her ready and bringing her to school and collecting her again and in the meantime taking care of the baby.
I’m sure it will get easier eventually and I’m really grateful that I can do these things, but I’m happy that I will be able to sleep in this week and relax a bit.
But then I remembered that I have to collect Avon books and order forms in the morning tomorrow.I just became an Avon representative a week ago. I decided to try that out to have a bit of income since my paid maternity leave will end this week. I’m praying that my Avon business will go well with Gods grace. On Tuesday I have to collect Avon books and order forms as well and I have to take dd2 to the gp for an immunisation too. Oh well, for the rest of the week, we haven’t got anything planned, I think.

Now that I’m cooking everyday I try to cook new things every time.
The first two days I made bami (kind of noodles) with chicken and vegetables in soya sauce and rice, chicken and whole beans These are things that hubby also cooked and we already had the ingredients. But on Wednesday and Thursday I made macaroni with red pepper, carrot and bacon and on Friday I tried a new sauce that I found in Lidl called Chicken Chasseur sauce mix.
It turned out to be very yummie (we all liked it ) and my dd asked me if we could eat it again today. So I’m cooking again today.
I really have to get used to doing so much in the house. (even though I actually should do a lot more) but I’m just so tired lately. I asked hubby to get me vitamins so I’m taking them since yesterday and now that I get the chance to sleep in some more I hope to be feeling much better soon.

Anyway, I was wondering : Do you have a so called home business as well ? If yes, how is it going? I’d love to hear from you.

Have a nice day !

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
