I am such a bad blogger!!

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. 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.

Hassling? Me? :-) I was hoping that you'd updated, checking to see was the last thing I planned to do before going to bed ... lol

And Nikki's hair looks lovely, it really really suits her short!

Hope the weather isn't too cold for you out at netball this week, it was great catching up with you on MSN last night, speak soon.

Gosh, ladies, did you both post at such ungodly times, or does Tina just have her time zone thingy set wrongly on blogger lol.........

You are not a bad blogger, I go through phases like that too Tina. Sometimes we feel like there's not much to say, as life just rumbles along.

Your daughter's hair looks lovely, I generally prefer shorter hair on young girls, I see too many at work with hair in their eyes while they are trying to work. So often their hair is so fine, that it doesn't stay in clips and bands, or the kids pull out their hair.

HOpe the weather fines up for you soon. It's quite miserable when it's cold for so long.

How are you feeling? I will keep my fingers crossed for your next appointment.

Tina said...

LOL Jenny. I have the time set wrong. I have tried to fix it, but it's not co-operating.

I love your frangipani photo. That is my absolute favourite flower.

Hiya Tina. Thanks for the update. Been very busy myself splitting my time between home and Dad's. Was thinking of you this morning and wondering if you'd had your next appointment - I see it's next month. Hope all goes well. Lots of love XXOO

:-( And there I was thinking we'd have another update here by now ... lol
