After experiencing my first ever earthquake last night, my internet went out and I didn’t get a chance to blog. We’re all ok, it was like having a train pass by our house; nothing was damaged and the children didn’t even wake). Let’s just say my day revolved around grocery shopping, farm paperwork and adding two extra children to my household for a few hours after school. My HIGHLIGHT of the day was when all the planets aligned and I got to have an unrushed, uninterrupted shower (bubs actually napped for a decent amount of time while boy wonder was at school and the princess at 3yo kinder).

A Good Cause
Even though the red nose pictures I did today were a bit of fun, it was also for a good cause as part of Red Nose Day and raising money for SIDs. Every red nose picture made attracts a $1 donation from Harvey Norman.
