Im really loving the holidays. Except for the fact that I haven’t made it to the gym so far this week. I won’t tomorrow or Thursday as we have all the fun court stuff to attend ( of course while hubby is away)

Yesterday we went to Dan Gleeson gardens, and ran into James Tamou! Now if you aren’t sure who he is- google! He was lovely, nice to have a chat to a huge footy star about his kids!

Lex and Ana went shopping to buy some scrapbooks and new pencils, they are going to draw daddy a picture every day ( and we will journal) about all the fun things they have done.

Lex loves drawing- thats his super hornet in the photo πŸ™‚

I made a frittata for dinner- best way to use up all the leftover roast veggies, and have a vegetarian meal!

Today has been fairly quiet. I took the kids to Maccas for a play- and coffee with Miss Kylie and Miss Kathie and all the kids. Then a nice big food shop. Im sure my grocery bill doubles in school holidays!


School Holidays

Thank goodness we are having 2 weeks off! Its been a flat out super crazy term, and every one has been sick at some point ( well except me!) So we have moved into relax mode. Kids are loving Netflix πŸ™‚

Quick updates

IMG_4426 IMG_4427 IMG_4437 IMG_4450

Mr K- has a great job and has 4 weeks left of year 12! Time goes so quickly. He is loving jiu jitsu, and getting better at driving.

Miss T- also has a new job , and has just started inductions. She is loving it.

Miss Z- received a Diligence award last term for school. She is very studious, as well as participating in choir, and teem vinnies and YCS through school.

The girls are also starting hip hop next term.

Lex- I still can not believe he is off to big school after Christmas. He loves kindy. He has lots of friends, and it seems a birthday party invite every week! He loves to “read” and ride his bike.

Ariana- This girl is my wild child. Super funny. Super cute, Super loving. Β She loves going to creche, Ive just stopped her going to daycare as she goes to creche every day, and she was struggling with Daddy being away

Xavier- wow this child is a chunker! 5 months old and weighs in at 8.8kg. Trying hard to crawl, he flips himself over at every opportunity. Eats 3 meals a day. such a happy little man- he rarely cries. just starting to teethe now.

Stormy- is the naughtiest dog in the world! He ripped the screen off the laundry door. He stands in his water bowl, he hits the kids climb all over him, he lays in front of the fridge if you are in the kitchen, and now he’s taken to trying to drink my coffee. he’s the best dog we have ever had!

Eric- well as per usual with the defence lifestyle he is away. Of course this means we have some crisis going on in our house that I wish he was here for- but not to be. He missed fathers day, we managed to have it a little early which was nice. His jet ski is ready to pick up! woohoo. That will make weekends extra fun

Me- I withdrew from nursing and started my PT course, and a diploma of business. Also add in a strength and nutrition class. Love it! Im back working out at the gym 5 days a week, currently 3 weeks in to a 12 week challenge, I need to step up my game Β a bit πŸ™‚

Anyway thats about it. Off to drop big ones at the shops and me to gym and littles to creche.

Hope you enjoy your day. I will *try* to update more frequently, since my FB is off at the moment.


I am sorting out this……

  Because “stuff” seems to accumulate when hubby is home. He is back at work till thurs, Fri he has his operation and then he’s off work for another week


I am so terrible at blogging. Life is crazy here at the moment – school holidays make things busier- and more food needing to be consumed 😁

Ariana and her arm

 Thursday night Ariana ended up at the hospital with a suspected broken wrist. Daddy went to pick her up and she slipped and we heard a crack, she wouldn’t stop screaming. Poor kid. Turns out she dislocated her elbow. Once the doctor popped it back in she was fine!

Miss T

we bought Miss T a new desk, and I took her old one to the family area for a study desk. I must say I love this desk!
  I thought she may have actually put her books on it but no!
