Bits and Bobs

Meet Me at Mikes is doing a week of Golden Books (yay!). Above are some pickies of my fave - Doctor Dan the Bandage Man. The top pick shows the mint condition, the two bottom pickies are the pickies of my very own book after much lovin. I adored this book and I think it my of started my minor obsession with band aids and my then progression into nursing (just so I could justify my band aid use). I use to beg for a "mixed" pack of band aids just so I could lay my pudgy finger on the much wanted dot band aids. Now I can go to work and happily lay dots on as many unsuspecting patients as I like. (Next time a nurse places a "dot" on your arm with wierd little happy smile on her face it might just be me.)

Yesterday Little Mary Moo's fish tank had a referb. A full spring clean was given, new plants purchased and a lovely rock added. Lola (named after "Charlie & Lola"), the angel fish seems very happy with with the new additions and more so with actually being able to see out. We have also added a bristle nose sucker fish who is oh so cute but seems to be missing in action this morning. The girl at the pet shop said the sucker fish should keep down the algae, I hope so because I'm not so great with keeping up the regular cleaning of the tank.

This is a picture of my littlest Moo. On Thursday evening she gleefully told me that she had to go to school as a pirate for the last day of school - don't you love those last minute school requests! So we had a bit of a scramble for a costume. Being in a female only house we don't own a great deal of pirate paraphernalia. I put together a very dodgy eye patch late in the evening made out denim and gingham and teamed it with a Canteen scarf, striped red top and a denim pinny. Her big sister even made her a sword (after much confusion between the difference of a "saw" and a "sword". Yes she nearly went to school as the handy man pirate). Well we made it with just minutes to spare before before boarding the bus. The eye patch and the sword have yet to be seen again.
The girls and I are off to the Sunshine Coast for a few days. My eldest is competing in a gymnastics comp and I have to say I am very pleased with the choice of venues as it is a lovely excuse to get away for a few days. There is plenty of sunshine today and it should be nice and warm for a swim - for the girls, I shall spare the world from the torture of my post winter body as it is far from a pretty sight.

He he, I'm going to watching the nurses very closely next time I'm up for a jab! And the idea of a pirate handyman made me almost snort my chamomile tea out of my nose. For a last minute outfit it looks pretty terrific to me :)

Ta Bec, sorry about the tea, they are so funny when they get words mixed up.

I love Dr Dan! I'm wondering if he is Nurse Nancy's brother? We have the Nurse Nancy book at home and it has the same delightful illustrations!
