Maccas on the train

Posted by Rin Buth at 12:04 AM 0 comments

I took my boys out today to Melbourne city via public transport.  I really hate the public transport system because it's almost always extremely packed and never running on time (today was a good day, though).  With the new Myki ticketing system it's also tricky to take out both my boys as having three cards scanned is such a hassle.  I feel like I'm holding up the line and I can hear the impatient sighs from the other commuters.

We had maccas for lunch.  My kids had a 3 nugget happy meal with apple juice each, and I had a fillet'o'fish meal with a frozen coke.  I have never seen a frozen coke filled up to the brim before -  I had to start drinking it right away as it was expanding and would've dribbled out of the hole if I hadn't!  We ate on the train, to save time.



I went to a Guess store to pick up some shoes that were on hold for me.  I also tried on a dress that I really liked but I think I'll wait for it to go on sale before I consider purchasing it.  I tried to take a few photos in the store but my younger boy can't keep still and my older son is always pulling silly faces.

My outfit today was a pink shirt by Ralph Lauren, skinny jeans by True Religion, ballet flats from Forever New and a crossbody bag from K-Mart.  Below are the latest additions to my shoe collection.  I can't wait to wear them!

Sunday in pictures: ice-cream & Harbour Town

Posted by Rin Buth at 3:22 AM 0 comments
Today the boys and I spent half the day out.  We went to Brighton for some ice-cream and a spot of shopping before heading to Docklands for some more shopping and fun in the sun.


The boys have to share their ice-cream because they will never finish it if they get their own.  Even then, they don't finish a shared small cup!


I usually don't like to eat ice-cream but I figured I probably could do with the calcium.  I chose hokey pokey and while it tasted exactly like it was supposed to, there were no honey comb bits!  The whole reason why I choose hokey pokey was because I wanted to eat those crunchy balls of sweetness... grrr!  On my nails is Chanel rose exuberant - review here.


Dante being the little poser that he is.


Harbour Town - the most boring shopping "center" in my opinion as they don't have any stores I like.  But at least it's outdoors and my kids enjoyed themselves as they got to run around in the sun and play games at the EB Games store.


The boys and I inside a store.  


The boys mucking around in Rebel sport.  Guns are bad, I know!  The shops closed at 5pm so we headed to the wharf for a scenic walk.  And no, I did not buy anything!  What a surprise.


A little boat we saw along the pier.  And my boys posing under the sculpture thingy.


More posing under sculptures.



Two particularly bad photos of us, but it's the only one I got of all three of us without me taking it in the mirror!  In the first one, the kids look great but I look terrible with my wind swept hair.  In the second, I look decent but my kids aren't focusing.  *sigh* 



Dante thought he could move the sculpture.  After a good five minutes of pushing, he finally gave up.  Hehe!


After our walk, we headed back home and had a greasy dinner of fish and chips (and potato cakes and dim sims).

How was your Sunday?

Apologies in advance...

For those currently following me for beauty, I would like to apologize to you because from here on,  this will be turned into more of a lifestyle/dear diary blog.  If you would like to see beauty related posts, please head over to www.makeupdownunder.com and hopefully you will follow me there instead.

Formalities out of the way, I will now introduce myself.  I am Rin.  Currently I am on holidays from study, although I most likely will not continue my course. I have two boys, aged 10 and 4 who have been diagnosed with autism and PDD-NOS, respectively.  They are the reason I wake up each morning (albeit begrudgingly) and try to live life like a normal person.

I am probably as far from normal as possible.  Two boys with different fathers yet both have some kind of "disorder", well the common denominator would be me, wouldn't it?  Perhaps I am autistic myself and was just never diagnosed... *stares into space for 5 minutes*. Kidding aside, who really knows, huh?

I've decided to share bits and pieces of my life. I have always blogged and I don't think that's a habit I can ever change. Not that that's a bad habit to have... although I have always been a camwhore as well, and that didn't change even though after having two kids, it should have!

Anyway, welcome to my life! *cue MTV Cribs music* Come on in, you can even leave your shoes on if you like ;)
