i have a confession to make....

when the children are playing quietly and happily together i sometimes do this... yes i sneak a peek at them through the blinds! is this strange? are there other crazy mums who know that if you so much as show your face around the corner of a wall that all gooey sibling fun ends? i do hope that i am normal and that my life here is the same as at least one other domestic goddess out there!!
when i saw what they were doing i had to take some photos to share.
back in december lili and i visited the angel cafe in toowoomba and ever since then she has been setting up her own version...
here is the decor complete with notepad and pen to take your order!
the waitress serving her customers.
cupcakes, brownies and grapes mmmmmm
the happy customers!
the waitress even does the dishes!! gosh i have taught her well :)
there you have it... what my girls do when they play nicely together, i just wish they could do that more often *_*
an update on the snow domes... plaster master mick helped lili mix and pour the plaster into the molds and they turned out quite alright. one had a slight accident but it hasnt deterred lili from getting them done. the only problem is finding time when the baby isnt up and we are home! i will keep you posted on the progress.
arent they the sweetest and she is taking her time to make them perfect.
and last of all selina (from my giveaway) has found her home. the lovely bunny has posted about her here. go check it out.
ok off to watch the secret millionaire (wish he would secretly find me)

Oh, here I am stalking again ( not really you know that right?). Of course spying on your kiddlywinks is normal, my kids think I am magic when they come inside to tell me something and I say 'I know' when I should have said'Really?'. I love to know what games they invent left to their own day they will start sewing I am sure......
Sweet cafe though I must say, I tell you Lili will be taking over Lilly Cottage any day now!

Hey Rosey! Yep, Angel Cafe is one of my faves up here! It's where two of my friends and I head for our birthday celebrations. My other is the Chocolate Cottage at Highfields and ... surprise, surprise ... happens to be at the Village Green complex where my fave patchworkshop is - Quilters Angel! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs!

Hi Rosey! Adorable photos of your girlies! Makes me remember how my cousins and I would play grocery store. I loved being the cashier. Thanks for sharing!

Nothing better than when the kids are happily playing together.
With my eldest off to School very soon,I will have lost my Mediator...sob,sob.
He always keeps them in line and is so helpful.

I would like to take a seat at that cafe - too sweet!!
Of course it is normal to spy on your kids - we all do it..don't we? Spying sometimes shows you the good and the bad. I know I have caught my girls out having a bit of 'biffo' when they think I can't see them. What they still don't know, is I can see their reflections in the glass front wall oven....LOL

I think we have all done that, take a sneaky peek and if they're happy leave them to play. Holly set up a Christmas craft stall in the front room before Xmas selling little cards she had made. How cute is that, unfortunately we were the only customers.
They're very sweet little girls.
Take care.

I think not spying is not normal . Nothing nicer than watching the rare times mine play nicely together .
