A new favourite website

I found a new website - Daily Feats
It is a site where you can "tick" off items that you have done during the day, set goals for the week.
You can earn points too, I have been donating my points, but if you are in America, you can get rewards (I haven't checked them out much as I am not in America).

Check out this site, I find it helpful to tick off the things I want to do in a day, and doesn't use up any paper ;)

The Wedding - part 3

After the ceremony, there were drinks in a lovely courtyard.
There was a giant chess set, which Rona and Grace really liked

They loved making the "horses" kiss
It was a lovely afternoon/evening. 3am the next morning Rona woke up throwing up. Poor baby. The next day we had to drive 3 hours again back home. Rona threw up twice in the car and thankfully, slept for a good portion of the drive. Rona recovered in a couple of days, but then Husband caught it...... so my days have been filled with laundry and disinfecting things.

The Wedding - part 2

Once we got the girls down the aisle, it was the bride's turn.
I got to see her walk down the aisle, then Rona and Grace decided that they would rather play in the garden (outdoor wedding) than watch people get married.

I think they pulled out about 10 roses, but weren't they cute?
Yes, Rona, it is a fabulous idea to roll on the grass in a white dress....

The wedding - Part 1

Recently, we travelled 3 hours to Husband's cousin's wedding. She has a daughter Alyssa, that is 2 weeks older than Rona.
Rona, Alyssa and Grace (William and Deanne's daughter, 2 months younger than Rona) were all flower girls.

This is before the ceremony, while the girls were waiting for the photos of the bride to be done. 


 About to walk down the aisle. Rona detoured a bit while trying to walk down the aisle but we got there.

Muddy Puddles

It has been raining a lot here lately. Rona loves the rain, and puddles. She also has developed a love for jumping in muddy puddles (thanks to Peppa Pig) Photobucket Photobucket Don't worry, the traffic was stopped during these photos, Rona was in no danger of being run over (I am pointing this out as my sister in law asked me on Facebook about Rona's proximity to traffic)

Swimming with cousins

Photobucket We recently went swimming with Ruth, Samuel, Charlotte and Ryan. Rona loved swimming, and spending time with her cousins. We ended up swimming for 3 hours. Photobucket

Goodness, I am hopeless

Sorry, I really should get myself together.

Lately, we have had to travel to a family wedding (where Rona was a flower girl, more on that later), then Rona came down with a gastro bug (on the way home no less), and now Husband is down with it.....

Sorry for being such a bad blogger lately.

My new accounting software

I recently decided I needed to record everything I spend to help our budget.

And I found this great free software called Buddi.
It is fabulous!
I find it really user friendly and useful. The website has tutorials, but I have just figured my way around it myself.

So, if you are looking for personal finance software, check it out

So here are some facts about the number 400 from Wikipedia
