A Caged Animal?!

This is what the kids got up to this afternoon.

Aiden and Chelsea both tried to fit into the cage. Aiden got stuck and Chelsea couldn't fit.

The Boys

While the girls were picking mulberries, this is what the boys were doing.

Mulberry Picking

While we were around at Karen's Sunday afternoon, Chelsea and Saskia were picking the fruit off the mulberry tree. They certainly look they are enjoying themselves.

The Kids

Here a few pictures of the kids. Doesn't Aiden look so enthused to have his photo taken? And Campbell, well it speaks volumes.

My Neglected Blog

I have been neglecting my blog lately. I have been pre-occupied with my nephew's (Kallan) blog - which I created and am responsible for updating. He was recently diagnosed with an osteosarcoma in his right humerus bone.

To follow his progress in his treatment towards recovery, refer to

A Little About Me

What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was 25 and working at the same place I still work today - must be a great employee!! I had met Will, although we weren't (back) together until the end of the year. My first nephew, Kallan, was born. I lived with him prior to his birth and for a few months afterwards.

What are 5 things on my to-do list?

1. Finalise passports for our trip
2. Empty my ironing basket
3. Clean the bathroom
4. De-junk my house (again)
5. Some craft projects

What would I do with a Billion dollars?

More importantly, what WOULDN'T I do with a billion dollars? The list would be endless. The obvious being get out a debt, and share with family. I would finally have the money to get that tummy tuck, personal chef/trainer. Anything I want - oh wouldn't it be grand?

5 of my bad habits:

1. Impatience
2. Tend to be a little moody at times - sleep deprivation does that
3. To generous sometimes
4. Spoil my kids with stuff that I never got as a child - toys, clothes
5. Eat too much chocolate - I do have that under control now

5 places I have lived:

1. Legana - TAS
2. Tannum Sands - QLD
3. Rutherford - NSW
4. Brisbane - QLD
5. Maitland - NSW

5 jobs I have had:

1. Checkout Operater (Kmart)- QLD
2. Clercial/Departmental Officer (Dept of Lands) - NSW
3. Mum
4. Haven't had any other jobs

5 Things people don't know about me:

1. I don't like my toes being bent over
2. When pregnant, absolutely no one was allowed to touch my belly button - GROSS (my sisters use to try and touch it just to get a reaction)
3. I am allergic to penicillin
4. I never get to watch my shows on tv - between three kids, a husband, DVD's, kids shows and a PS2 - I need my own tv!
5. I love chocolate - ok EVERYONE knows this, but I couldn't think of anything else

5 People I tag:

1. Whoever may wish to do this

* I have been trying to post this for about a week - refer to # 4 above - it applies to the computer as well!

Are You Comfortable?

I was reading a bed time story to the boys the other night. This is how Campbell positioned himself to hear the story. He actually fell asleep!
