Happy New Year/ Summer Time!!

Well a very happy new Year to you all - ages since I blogged but eveytime I sit down, something else needs my attention and it just doesn't happen!!! Well now that the hype and rush of Xmas is over 2008 is here!!!! Sheesh last year went so quickly and my mum keeps telling me it just keeps on speeding up which does not thrill me at all lol!!! We took the kids out to Riverton on New Years day - a little seaside town about 25mins drive from Invercargill which has a lovely beach and it was really busy - totally suitable for kids as vehicles do not really drive on the beach and you can see fishing boats easily so the girls thought that was pretty cool!!! The dogs are getting so big now and were totally into being the waves with Aaron and Millie - did not enjoy Diva coming back to me for smooches though and drying herself off by drenching me as she shook the water from her coat - ratbag!!! Paige's confidence has grown so much since her swimming lessons and was quite happy to paddle and Max - well he is a typical boy who fell over in his clothes in the water so figured there was no point changing him so just let me paddle in his singlet and change him when we left!! Check out his thighs, I just love them, so chubby but boy can they motor!!! We are taking him for X-rays on the 7th as he walks like he is pigeon toed but on seeing the doctor, he assures he is not pigeon toed and rather that the problem is with his hips potentially - a little scared of what the xray will show but if there is a problem that needs medical assistance then better now than when he is older - needless to say when he was checked at 8weeks old I was less than impressed with the 10 seconds (and not an exaggeration) that the registrar who was conducting the hip check clinic examined him for and it now seems that she did miss something - honestly it made me so mad as she was having a conversation with a colleague at the time and was not concentrating!!! Anyway rant over - and will post the results of the xray!! A very happy new year to you and your families from my family and I truly hope 2008 is one of peace and happiness!!

December already.....

Yikes, where did the year go??? Only 21 more sleeps until the big guy in red makes his brief arrival!! I was listening to the radio today and heard that this year will be Santas busiest - he has to deliver presents to 2.4 billion homes and will have to travel 5300miles per second spending just on 34 sec in each home to deliver all his presents!!! Millie asked me would he make it to our house on hearing this - of course I replied, there are female reindeer guiding the sleigh so they will make sure Santa gets it all done!!!
Have done a little Christmas shopping, to be honest the queues and crowds of people make me just want to shop online........ LOTS......... people just completely forget any semblance of manners at this time of the year and the most disturbing thing I have seen to date is 2 women fighting (I had to actually walk away as it was so ridiculous) over an outfit in Pumpin Patch the other day........... We have ALOT socially coming up in the next 10 days, thrown in three 6 year old parties, including Millie's which I have still got to figure out how to entertain twelve 6 year olds, which brings me to my next point - when did children start needing to be entertained and not just be able to make up games and then get on with them............ sigh! Still it will be lots of fun for Millie and I cannot believe she will be 6!!!

Look what came to live at our house today......

Guess what I am going to be doing all this week............. playing!!! Have been waiting on one of these ages, super excited, Aaron sooooooo does not get it!!!!!


scrapbook stuff tonight has been my mission - I have been on a bit of a bender this weekend in regards to clearing stuff out, removing the excess and getting back to my obsessive compulsive tidy self!!! So to say I have been throwing out is a bit of an understatement and as a result I have all of this to give away to a new home - there are ribbons and fibres for miles, the Maya Road tin which is very handy for storage or for altering, cards to wind ribbon etc on, brads, flowers, chipboard, inks, foam stamps etc etc etc etc etc etc!!! So if you want to go in a random draw to have this lot winging its way to your house then leave me a comment!! No questions, no gimmicks, just a simple hello is all that is required and I will ask my lovely assistant, Miss Millie to draw a winner on Friday!!!! Sorry about the photo, light is not great but I promise it is a lovely box of goodies!!!! Whoops have just noticed the stamp in the photo, that is not part of it....... would seem I have to make tidier piles!!!
