I haven't had the urge to update my blog at all lately as some of you have noticed. So this update is for Tania. http://taniasjourneytogoal.blogspot.com/ Tania has been hassling me to update - lol.
I guess the last couple of weeks have been rather boring. Because it has been school holidays and because of lack of money, we have done very little. The kids have had a good break spending time between my mums, my wonderful next door neighbour who is a 24 year old kid who my kids adore and friends. There hasn't even been any good kids movies on these holidays. They are hanging out to see the Simpsons movie which comes out on Thursday. We've had the usual run of kids birthday parties. It seems we have one nearly every weekend.
I am hating this cold weather. I have been hibernating. Getting in my pj's every night around 7pm and sitting in front of the heater with my granny blanket. Only 10 weeks and 4 days until we go to Cairns. I am not looking forward to everything starting again this week after the holidays. Especially the night netball. It is so freezing standing there watching.
I am plodding along with my diet. I am still eating lots of iron rich foods so I really pray my blood test on the 17th August shows an improvement.
Steve went to Sydney last weekend. He has a mate who is moving to Darwin and wanted to bring some stuff back to Adelaide so Steve flew over and they drove back. Things is they drove back via Melbourne so it took a lot longer than they had planned.
Nikki and Ashleigh had heaps cut off their hair a couple of weeks ago. Nikki has been wanting to get hers cut short for ages and each haircut has got shorter and shorter. But this time she did it and it looks great. That is her in the photo. Ashleigh has had very long hair for years now and she had hers cut to just below her shoulders. Thank goodness. I got so sick of the dramas of brushing her hair every day. It is a breeze to brush now.
My front yard makeover has stalled a bit because every weekend I've had to do it has been raining. We have had an incredible amount of rain this winter. Like most of the country, it is much needed.
I'm enjoying this time of year. We have no family birthdays in July so it has been a bit quieter. I even went to the Kmart toy sale last week and put some things on layby for christmas. I just wish I had got a bit organized and did a bit more but I'm sure there will be many other sales between now and christmas.
I want to send a huge congratulations to Adam and Hayley on the safe arrival of their precious daughter Miette. Well done Hayley. I'm looking forward to hearing all the news after a very long labour.
So there it is. Life in the last couple of weeks has been very boring and I've loved every minute of it. Back to reality tomorrow when the kids go back to school.
