THE MONDAY MONTAGE

a few iphone snaps taken over the last week.

my poor boys (and even me who hardly ever gets sick) have been battling a case of the winter sniffles this last week, and so we've been laying low to some extent.. i find that very hard to do actually.. i always feel as if it's better for mental and therefore physical health to get out in the fresh air.. especially when it beautiful and sunny like it has been this weekend... but i guess i need to realize there are times when laying low is the best option, especially to give little bodies chance to recover. so the weekend has consisted mainly of christmas movies and snuggling :) we did get out on a great hike on sat thankfully though (see previous post).

during our weekly routine, roo and i have got into a bit of a habit of somehow arriving at the coffee shop every day after the morning's activity.. it's pretty fun actually. roobs gets a hot chocolate and i get my much needed caffeine fix, win win. our favorite hang out at the moment is cafe for contemporary art. great coffee, interesting art, funky chairs... and a kids area. i like this place! it's also walking distance from ol's work so we can meet up for lunch now and again.

prior to the coughs and sniffles taking over around the weekend a few highlights for us were fun had by roo messing about in a rather deep puddle.. the big weekly grocery shop, which has become a lot easier now that we have discovered kids get a free cookie from the bakery (haha who am i?!). roo busting into the christmas display/santa area at the mall that wasn't open yet and i couldn't get him back.

it was also ol's christmas work 'do' on friday and a rare chance for us to get all dressed up and enjoy a night out together... without the kids! this was really the biggest highlight of the week but.. unfortunately we totally forgot to get any pictures of ourselves in our finery.. seriously!! it will be another a year again before we see ourselves looking that good! darn.

benji (although sniffly) is doing great, he is seriously such a smiler and cracks me up
 all the time with his big grins.

in other big news, super star roo has been without a diaper for a week now and he has been doing so well. he's totally cracked it at home and does fine with reminders when we're out. nice work roobs! x
