Australia : Day 6 & 7

Hello all, sorry a bit behind on the post. Had s*%t day yesterday. I went out for breakfast yesterday with the peeps, like we always do every week. So anyway the boy wasnt very well so I didnt take him to daycare, but thought we could just get out for an hour or so and then come home and snuggle up..he loves seeing the girls, and we were having breakfast by the river which he anyway we go. But I was thinking I should stay home, but anyway, go to breakfast and as I pull into park BANG I hit my girlfriends car in the carpark. Hence to say I cried, went in told my girlfriend and then promptly went home, and hid under the covers with the boy all day.

Anyway on to day 6 & 7...

Day 6 - Well Spotted

A little about well spotted from their website - t's hard to believe that when well spotted started it was a serious slightly sarcastic t-shirt brand for adults the inspiration for which came from a disenchanted 30-something year old outlook on life. Then my son Finbar was born. The inspiration came from an entirely different place after that. First he was very hungry, very sleepy. Then he was small but we knew he knew stuff. At three, he was far out (brussel sprout) and at age five, well you can see what he is into now. Each stage of his development has inspired its own t-shirt and despite the obvious copyright risks with this one, I could not resist the force is strong. May the force be with us..

I just love love love these kids shirts they are just many fabulous colours and the slogans are just gorgeous. Go check them out at WELL SPOTTED!

and above is a photo of my boy (on the right) with his best bud..who is wearing the Unreal Banana Peel shirt!
