Wow look at you? I go quiet for a couple of days and you have the full thing under control. To be honest, our wireless seemed to be down, and then realized after a couple of days of fiddling with wires etc, that in fact I’d only gone and knocked the plug out behind the dresser when hoovering! That will teach me! So glad to see that in my absence so much got done. I am eager to start on the branding brief as soon as possible. I have got a wonderful designer I work with who would be perfect for this. Let me know when you are ready and we will Skype and chat through your ideas. I will set aside a few days next week to write up the brief. Are we 100% about ‘Elderflower & Delilah’ as the brand name, I love it. Do you?

I have an idea…

OMG Delilah, I think I have an idea. Seriously, I have been thinking about this for the last few months, and it didn’t really seem to mean anything until you said that. I have a fab breastfeeding top I rustled up when feeding Esmé, I’ve been using again with Annie and get loads of positive comments about it, even people interested to know where I got it from – can you believe that? It’s such a simple design, but a really attractive top as well as a perfect top for a discreet feed. As you know, I feed everywhere and anywhere, but it is really reassuring to have it in my bag to pop on when I’m caught out with a string vest and a crying starving bubba demanding to be fed (particularly in the café’s). Here, I’ll send you a pic…..

It’s just a rough idea….but can you see where I’m heading with it??


What do you think? I’ve adjusted it since, as the panel at the bottom wasn’t long enough to cover my post baby bulge. What do you think? Could this be a goer?

Maybe I should get my little sewing machine out and make up one to show you next time we are on Skype. Who knows it could work?

Ok.. I’m here

Hey Delilah,

Ok so you have me here. I am not entirely sure how this all works and am a little concerned that the world can see this. But I think you are right, I need to start moving with the times. How’s life over in Bondi today? By the looks of things you are already getting better weather than our entire summer. One minute we’re baring all in our strappy dresses and the next minute I’m wrapped up in woolies!!!

That “Super Heroes Party” looks amazing. Love the comic strip you have made. Wow is that really how birthday parties are organised in Bondi? I need to start rethinking my approach, my simple ‘Art Parties’ will no longer cut the mustard if Esmé see’s these pictures.

Thinking about weaning Annie off the boob. She’s showing me all the signs that’s she’s ready…..and I have to admit, I feel I’m ready to have my body back to myself – does that sound awful? How was Byron when you weaned him, was it hard? Annie and Byron have such similar personalities… I didn’t have much of a choice with Esmé, the decision was pretty much made up by her. It’s all such a quandary???!!!??

Ok.. I’m here

Elderflower, are you there?

Somehow I managed to find myself here on this blog, and I thought it would be a good place for us to share. I know you are not really into ‘blogging’ but just snap out of it, as it’s time you strip off your concerns and lay yourself bare for the world to see. Anyway, what’s the worst that could happen, no one reads this?

Just thought I would kick-start with an anecdotal story for the day. As you know Byron is now nuts about Spiderman. In fact we now cannot get the damn suit off him (even to wash). I am finding myself sneaking it from his room at night to get it on a speed wash. He’s even refusing to go to the toilet through fear I will swipe it from underneath him. We went to a wonderful ‘Super Heroes Party’ today for Winston’s 3rd birthday. When trying to convince Byron he would definitely need the toilet, he yells out to me in front of the other mums eating their birthday cake “No mummy, I am not doing a poo, my poo has fallen asleep and gone back up bum bum!” Oh the joys of motherhood.

Here are some of the pictures of the day. So cute!
