Goodbye

I just wanted to do an official post and let everyone know that I am returning to my former blog. Truthfully, I miss it. I was on that blog for many years and it was like a comfortable pair of old shoes.

If you would like to follow me, I will be here: http://tc-twistedfairytale.blogspot.ca

The FUN never ends!

Well we are all moved in and settling in okay. Sorry for the delay in posting but during our move, someone broke into our old place in the terrible neighbourhood and robbed us. Some of the things that are gone are my digital camera, my friends digital camera, a laptop, our computer monitor, money and a few other things that we can tell. As I said, we were moving so things were disorganized anyway. I am going up to the old place tomorrow to clean it up but I have to say, I can’t be out of there fast enough for me. The kids are loving this place. They love the yard and they REALLY LOVE their room. They spend more time there than anywhere else.

A little sore

Okay, so one of the dubious benefits of having a lot of kids running around my place is I find it hard to keep things off the floor.  There is always little bits of things some place I never intended them to be.  And today, I tripped over some and fell.  With 3 month old Jackson IN MY ARMS!!!!  I landed hard on my knees and knew I wasn’t going to be able stop myself from falling so I twisted myself so that I was under her and he landed with his head on my chest.  He was fine, but I am sore.  my neck,  my stomach, my back and my knees are all achy and sore.  Fun, fun, fun.  But at least I kept him from being hurt.

Creativity and Storage

I thought I would post some layouts I did of my three youngest sprouts.  I wish I had a digital camera back when I had Lilly.  I would love to be able to post hers to compare.

This is Rose

This is Lotus

And this is Reed

 

I also thought I would post some more storage ideas I had for after my move.

I like the idea of under shelf baskets for storage for things like bread.  I actually have some of these that I can make better use of.

There is a small linen closet in the new place I love the ideas in this  pic for making the best use of space and keeping it organized.

I love the idea of a tension bar for cleaners and then baskets for soaps, sponges, and such.

Decisions

We decided to arrange things differently in the new house. Lilly has been wanting her own room and she kind of deserves it. She is 6 years older than Rose is and shouldn’t have to share a room with a 4 year old and a 2 1/2 year old. So we are putting baby Reed in our room with a playpen in the living room as an option on nights when he needs more quiet to sleep. Then Lilly can have her own room and Lotus and Rose can share. We are thinking that in the future we could possibly put Reed in with the little girls for a little while before we eventually move into a four bedroom house as is our plan.

Lilly is so excited to have her own room.  She has been planning it ever since.

Robertson Ship Chandlery

My favorite part of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic was William Robertson & Son Store!  It has been on the Halifax Waterfront since the 1840s.  Robertson Ship Chandlery has been restored to the way it looked at the turn of the last century. I think it looks so amazing
