JFB - As I've been povo for awhile now I think I've become an expert on nappies I've used Aldi nappies sometimes and haven't had any big issues with them, I did notice the wee smell if they get too full that Alittle mentioned. However Woolies homebrand are the ones I mostly use now, Evie's managed to fill them up very well at times and never leaked, and are same cost as Aldi $11.49 for 50 nappies (upto 16kg weight) bargain I mostly shop at Woolies so I don't waste my time going to Aldi just for nappies, Ive not been too fussed with the Aldi where I live have also been stuck with off food, I do like their wipes though, very good and very cheap, I will get them if I'm near an Aldi somewhere. Otherwise I also use the coles comfy bots & wipes and they're pretty good too (we have them at the moment), never had a problem with them either, however I find the woolies brand are slightly bigger so if bub is on the chubby side it's not too tight around their middle. I gave up on huggies ages ago, always had leakage with them. Aldi have cheaper swim nappies and they've been pretty good.
I hate it when the garbo wakes us up or next door decides to whipper snip and mow at an ungodly hour, but it's more of a pain when the crows start squarking, we have 2 that lately like to sit on my roof and scream when the sun comes up, wish I had a slingshot, oh how I hate them
Alittle - I've given up on the TT at this stage, Evie is still having poo issues so will wait until that resolves. I have started to wonder if I've left it too late to have quick success because she's able to be defiant now & set in her ways, where as if she was younger she may have been more cooperative. My friend has started to put her 18 month old on the potty and she's already managed wees and a poo, however I think it's only been when she sees her about to start the poo and puts her on it & she sits there. If I try to do that with Evie she cracks it.
Fiona - I'm still humming and ahhing over when to go back to work I'm keen sometimes and look for work frequently but part of me still wishes I didn't have to.
BK - I've pondered at doing something similar to you with selling stuff online or buying stock to sell at markets however it seems to be all the rage here at the moment and has become very competitive, also handmade clothing has made a huge comeback, I have a few friends doing it. I like the range you have going.
Oh - I am going to be a great aunt again - for the 5th time
