So after being spoilt by my mum for almost 6 months and not having to do much around the house, I am actually getting into the whole housework scene. Very bizarre I know but I`m sure it won`t last for long ;-) I am sitting here rather wanting to go to bed but I just made a chocolate cake aka a wacky cake and I am waiting for it to cool so I can ice it. I can probably count on one hand the amount of cakes I have ever made but this one appears to have turned out. My Canadian friend gave me the recipe as she came over here a couple of years ago to use my oven to make birthday cupcakes for her boyfriend. I went to the party and did eat one but I can`t really remember what they tasted like as I was also consuming a lot of wine! I am visiting a friend on Friday so made it to take it over there by might test it out tomorrow first on my obachan students. Now I hope I don`t make a mess of the icing. I wasn`t going to ice it but as the top of it cracked a bit (expert cake makers - why does this happen?) I didn`t think it looked too attractive!
A nice productive day was had here. Spent the day at home with Kayla and she was very easy so I managed to get lots done. She had three vaccinations done yesterday which appeared to tire her out. I put her on a mat next to the window so I could see her (and vice versa) while I hung out the washing and when I came back inside she was asleep. I was amazed as she is almost 6 months old and it`s the first time she has fallen asleep by herself anywhere apart from the car. She slept for almost an hour and a half too which is unheard of for during the day. She then had lots of other little naps throughout the day.
I am trying to be more healthy with my eating and exercise more but can`t seem to find the time to get on the exercise bike. So today I decided that Kayla and I would park the car at a supermarket on the way to Liam`s daycare and then walk to get him. It only ended up being about a 30 minute return trip so I will have to park somewhere further away next time. I thought Liam would be excited about the walk and the offer of an ice cream when we got back to the car but he was rather unimpressed and told me I should have just driven. Charming! He of course scoffed down the ice cream though. He is going through quite a woe is me stage. At dinner, he was asking me why I always kiss and pat Kayla on the head but never do it to him. Of course that is not the case but I think he is missing the attention that he had for five years before Kayla was on the scene. I am trying to giving him special time as well but it`s hard when Ryuji is working like a crazy man and we don`t see him at all during the week.
Alright I had better go and check on my cake so I can get to bed.
