So this weekend has been a bit hectic. Mum was here, shopping was done, wine was drank, cuddles were had and I managed to squeeze in some time at the sewing machine. (This is my mum. She will not be happy with this photo but I think it is lovely.)
My friend Monika came over for lunch (she even bought the food and cooked it, what a result!) and I finally getting to meet her lovely girlfriend Tess. That is Mo' on the left with the boy. He will manage to squeeze in anywhere.
Finally, the big news is that I have chosen the winners in the great nappy experiment. Some were a bit hit and miss, some were just not what I was looking for at all, but over all the choice came down these three.,
They were the Fuzzibunz one size,
and the Smartipants.
All of them are bloody marvellous, but for my needs there were certain criteria that needed to be met. I started to write a comparison of these, but got half way through and bored myself. I may do it at some other point but right now I can't be arsed. So the out come is that I have ordered a 10 pack of the pop-in's with 5 refill's and 12 pack of the Smartipants, with 9 boosters. They worked bloody well, they fit like a dream, easy to maintain, are cute and were only blindingly expensive instead of heart attack expensive. This is more than enough to keep us goimg until the Monkey can go on her own. The total outlay is approximately the same cost as 5-6 months worth of Pampers. Yes that is a lot of money to lay out in one hit, but in the long run it will save money and I feel a bit better about not contributing to 500 years worth of land fill. There is also the added bonus of being able to use them on the next baby (if there is one) or selling them on if there isn't. For me it is win win.
