The tables have turned

So investing in a new hair cut and a new suit has paid of. lol.
Hubby's got himself a job. Hallelujah ! Praise God !
I'm so happy ,delighted and grateful to God who does everything on the right time.
This Saturday it's already time for my last maternity benefit payment but I've taken additional leave in faith, trusting the Lord that He would provide. And He has.
Hubby has started his new (temporary) job this week and will get paid on a weekly basis,so by the end of next week he'll probably have his first payment.Isn't God amazing ?

What this means, is that my life has become a little bit busier. I have to get dd1 ready every day and bring her to school and collect her from school every day by foot.(in the rain !)I have to do the grocery shopping by foot, other shoppings by bus, do the house hold and cook everyday. And next to that take care of both kids.
But this is what I've wanted for so long, so it's all good. Glory to God !

I wanted so much to stay home with my kids or at least work part time, which I will probably do from December. So my dream has really come true.
I do have to get used to this new life, but I will get there.
I'm a little bit tired today and decided to take it a bit easy.
Somehow my little baby princess is taking it easy too. lol
She woke up just before I took dd1 to school and she fell asleep on the way to Lidl and is still sleeping. (now by 11:45)

I started to do Avon by the way. And yesterday, I got my first order. Yay !I hope it will work out for me and I can get an extra income from it.

But luckily, hubby's got a job now. So I don't have to worry about earning money.(What a relief !)

Glory to God !

Did you take additional leave as well ? Are you a stay at home mum or do you work full or part time ? I'd love to hear from you.

Blessings and love ....

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…
