Well it is only a few more sleeps before the 10th Cloth Nappy Hunt is underway and again Ollie Rose is a sponsor.
The Cloth Nappy Hunt is great fun and there is a chance to win some awesome prizes, and probably one of my favourite aspects of the hunt is that you get to discover so many products and stores you might not have known about.
During the hunt Ollie Rose will be offering 10% off storewide to registered hunters with their discount code, so it is a perfect time to pick up some handy items such as our wetbags- not only handy for the cloth nappy mum, but just handy for kids in general. Both myself and Kobie would be lost without ours, especially as I have been toilet training Ari and it has been essential for those trips out – plus it looks fabulous and who can argue with that?
Don’t think you have to be a cloth nappy user to join in, the hunt is for everyone – if you love a challenge, you won’t be disappointed.
I was out doing a bit of second hand shopping today and managed to pick this up at a local shop. It is a gorgeous blue bird money box. I have always had a soft spot for blue birds, and even though I have no idea what I am going to do with it, I just couldn’t resist buying it and bring it home.
I think for now she will just remain on my desk looking at me.
There has been some crazy weather happening around this great nation of ours over the past few weeks. Even poor old Gero was not immune to a bit of strange weather.
We happened to be out and about and one of the rare times my camera was in the car so we stopped to watch a huge dust storm approaching over the ocean. It occurred so fast, literally in all of about 15 minutes, it came, it sandblasted, it poured with rain and the wind howled and then it was over.
At home we discovered 4 trees and a clothesline had toppled, as well as a general mess in our yard – rubbish and tree bits blown about.
Thankfully our little taste of bad weather was no where near in comparison to other areas of Australia. It really is a crazy start to 2011. I wonder what is in store for the remainder?
