Quick 7.



Christopher is now getting use to having his bsl checked each morning and night. He has had a couple of higher sugars but nothing high enough yet to start some insulin. We are noticing he is more irritable and hyperactive at times which was one of the things I noticed with Tom just before he was diagnosed. I am glad we know it is coming and that we can watch his bsl.


Saturday night movie

Tonights movie. Thanks so much to
Sharon for giving this dvd to us.


Anzac Biscuits.

Yesterday we made anzac biscuits. These are a very sweet biscuit. This is the recipe we used but we substituted the white sugar with brown sugar. That is the way I remember baking them growing up.


Our weekend.

It is going to be a busy one. I want to do a bit of sewing, catch up on the washing, cook some pumpkin bread and a few more biscuits. Steve is hoping to close in the door from outside to our new bathroom and do some work in the vegetable garden.



Sudoku has been one of my favourite games to play for a while now. Recently my mother got a heap of computer games for the children and among them was a game called kakuro. I didn't look at it at first but when I put the sudoku disk in, it had a trial of kakuro so I decided to have a look. Kakuro is similar to sudoku but a little bit easier I think.

You can play and read about Kakuro here


Overheard at my house.

Christopher and Amelia were talking.
Amelia: I really want mum to have a baby. No, two babies.
Christopher: No. I am the baby.
Amelia: If mum has a girl, you will be the baby boy still.
Christopher: I want mum to have a baby girl.
Amelia: two baby girls.



I don't really like winter but I love curling up by the fire with a cup of soup. At the moment my favourite flavour is chicken and corn.
Another good thing about winter is electric blankets. I haven't put mine on yet but it will be going on soon.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
