Clean Food? | I'm glad to see Achilles is particular in terms of what he eats. You know, choice selected, clean food. Though I'm not so sure that I am all that impressed with him cleaning his food in the shower rather than in the basin like normal people ... (My Life)
Olympus Tries on a Dressing Gown | Okay, it is fair to say with all this blog coverage regarding my premature, newborn daughter fighting away in the NICU, not much time has been giving to the other, more furry scallywag Country Mews Lotter Clan members, namely Achilles and Olympus. So here's the update ... (My Life)
Jessica’s Journey Home: Day 9 | Monday 22 November and another good day for Jessica. Although back on the CPAP for its oxygen assistance (well actually just for its monitoring at the moment really). Jessica is now taking in 4 ml of my Mooman's produce, with Steri and Stumpie still performing ... (Jessica | My Life)
Hey, All of a Sudden I'm a Winna Winner! | Hey, how did that happen? I blinked and all of a sudden I became a winna winner! Thanks to the blokes over at the excellent, my name was drawn out of the digital hat and I get to walk away with a cool hamper and ... (My Life)
Jessica’s Journey Home: Day 8 | Sunday 21 November and its another good day for little Jessica.

Jessica’s Journey Home: Day 7 | Saturday 20 November can go down as another good day for little Jessica, with three bits of good news coming through. First, she is now up to 1.5 ml of Chantelle's milk per hour, with a decrease in the amount of artificial nourishment that she was ... (Jessica | My Life)
Jessica’s Journey Home: Day 6 | Day 6 (Friday 19 November) marked the first day of both Chantelle and I operating out of Gordon's Bay, meaning that for the first time we couldn't just walk around the corner and say Hi to Jessie every five minutes! After a nice shower, we confirmed ... (Jessica | My Life)

Jessica’s Fight Back: Day 4 | Jessica's fourth day of living in this great big world with us went a lot better than the previous day. She had a good night, coming through without any hassles, her jaundice is beginning to show signs of receding nicely, and she appears to be ... (Jessica | My Life)

Jessica’s First Big Miracle | So the good news is that we've already received our first big miracle. We learned yesterday from doctor Edson that the initial x-ray of Jessica's chest was not good at all. The x-ray showed up her chest as being completely white, in other words rock ...

World, Say Hello to Jessica | On the 14th of November 2010, a full 8 weeks to early, our precious little dribble monster entered this world, kicking and screaming, and most important of all - alive. Small, but alive. Both mommy and daughter are doing well. And daddy? Daddy is of ... (Jessica | My Life)
Cold Wataah! | Eish, I've been living in my new home for well over a month now, so you would think I'm fairly familiar with it and can operate around pretty much blind by now. You would think so wouldn't you? Well not based on this morning's evidence, no. So I ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: The Birth of Jessica (2010-11-14) | By far the single greatest crowning achievement of my life (and the most worrying) was the birth of Jessica (even if she was so excited to be here with us she arrived a month or two early!) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
We need Your Prayers Please… | We thought we were in the clear. 31 weeks and 4 days had already passed, and apart from some very swollen feet, Chantelle and little unborn Jessica were doing absolutely fine. That all changed yesterday. Chantelle spent Friday night at the guest house, pampering herself with a ... (Jessica | My Life)

Garden Shedding | Work on our house continues unabated, and this weekend it was the turn of our messy back corner to receive its much needed transformation, clearing out all the rubbish the previous owners left us to deal with and instead replacing it with a bright and ... (My Life)
