Eye Spy.. Joining a meme, pretty girl stuff and swimming babes

Just signed myself up for Bug and Pop's "Eye Spy" meme each week... should be fun. Next up is Inspiration, might be a big post!

I'm wishing away the winter cold and endless fights with Miss-refuses-to-wear-warm-clothes and getting a start on summer clothes. Both kids need new wardrobes after growing the past year.

This lovely dress arrived from Bug and Pop, ordered off the lovely Cindy at Mathilda's Markets

New PJs for Isabella. OK these aren't for summer, but the idea was if they had a pretty matching skirt I might get her to wear them. So far so good.
Valori Wells Urban Flannel and plain pink flannel with lace trim on the sleeves and skirt
Burda 9765 Pattern for the top.

Last week my little Nemo boy.. gosh he loves his swimming.. had his first whole swimming lesson without Mummy in the pool. No tears and no fear.

Finally, thank you to everyone for your calls, tweets, Facebook messages checking after Dad. Since my last blog post everything went downhill in a big way. A double bypass was booked for Monday but he had a massive heart attack Sunday night and is now in ICU with a balloon in the main artery keeping his heart going. The good news (if there is such a thing!) is he was doing much better yesterday and the balloon is scheduled to be removed today. He then looses his "free ride" according to the doctors and will need to get his heart working for itself again. Looks like his bypass is going to be at least 1-2 weeks away while he improves. The tests run yesterday came back much better than they expected so that's a good thing. For someone who hates hospitals he's going to have to get used to it, looks like he'll be living there for another 4 weeks.
