I am still here. Sorry things got a little busy with me workwise. I hope that everything is going well with you two? Everything is ok here but it has been quiet other than work being a pain.
The pics look great especially the one inside the balloon itself.

Wow I just saw that there are 2 people reading this topic One of them is obviously me, but I can't remember the last time there were 2 people on at the same time
I don't know if I have mentioned in here that we have bought a block of land, and now our house is on the market. I am going a bit nutty trying to keep this place clean The kids have been really good about most of their toys being put away in the shed though. Hopefully it won't take long to sell. We have already had 4 lots through, and another one tomorrow. That is really good, since we only just put it on the market on Friday.
Kaylene - I'm glad you had fun on the balloon shoot. The photos look great My 3 are going well, and so am I It actually took until Eamon was nearly 10wks before it all caught up with me, and now that I am only getting up once a night to him, it's not really that bad. I don't think there will be anymore. DH wanted to stop at 2, so I don't think he will accept another accident I was actually just thinking the other day that I would like another girl But I think if I mentioned that to DH he would just head straight out and organise the snip Then again considering that he has been planning to get it since Zac was born 2.5 years ago, it might be the kick up the bum he needs
We just came back from a Wiggles concert It was great Makes Dorothy's Dance Party look pretty lame. The kids loved it. They are very athletic for old men Anthony and Captain Feather Sword were doing gymnastics, and they all had a go at a few somersaults off a trampoline
Well I think that it is just the 3 of us now, but considering it has been nearly 6 years since we first met, that is pretty impressive. I wonder about some of the others sometimes. Like TiggerK, Net&Bon, Scythe and Kaysie.
Well I'm glad that some of us are still here.

I am still about
Angela did you finally sort out work? How are the boys??
Katy LMAO. Oh and the other person online was probably a google bot...not an actual person LOL
As for the oldies....I have Kaysie and Emilia on fb. Kaysie has 2 now and I "think" a new bf Emilia still living with parents I think, boys are super cute I probably have more than that but I am soo slack, oh Carolyn, I have her too....
It is sad that teh group has died.....
All good here...working SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much I dont think I have had a rush this big in quite a while, not that I dont love it I had my first set of newborn twins through yesterday and OMG were they scrumptious!!!!
Ok better move
Posted 10 June 2009 - 02:11 PM
Kaysie has a new bf I assume you mean boy friend. I knew she had #2 but I didn't realise that she and DH split. When did that happen?
The twins must have been beautiful Did they behave? Make you clucky
Posted 11 June 2009 - 11:45 AM
Hiya lovely ladies
Angela just sent me a PM, so I thought I'd better try to come and say hello while EB seems to work OK this time.
(Since EB changeover to Fairfax, somehow it kept crashing my computer when I opened it up, so I found it frustrating).
My boys and I are good.
They started preschool this year and they seem to enjoy it very much (well, apart from their platonic love to one classmate that has been creating a bit of sibling rivalry ).
Thank you for PMing me.
I hope you and your boys are well...
Loooooove your photos on FB!
Where do you get those cute skirts from? Australia or overseas?
Thanks for sharing my update
Just to set the record straight... We moved out of my ILs in late 2007!
Wow, how much have I missed! I only knew you were expecting! Time really flies!
Good luck on the sale of your house.
Do you have Facebook? I think the only person here that I don't have is yours
I'd better post this first and see if I succeed this time

Hi Emilia. Good to hear from you. I do have an fb, I shall pm you with it. I only have Marnie on my list. I'll pm you to Kaylene. I think I used to have a few more but I think they must have wiped me for being a bad FB friend
Should I say I am on Twitter to I just wanted to see what it was about. I have 1 follower
Posted 11 June 2009 - 08:46 PM
Hi again everyone.
Thanks to Angela for sending me back
I've been busy studying and working and building (well trying) our new house.
Old user name was Baroness for those who don't remember!
I have Mitchell and Emma (06).
It's bed time for kids here so will keep this short, will be back later to chat.
Posted 13 June 2009 - 07:12 PM
Thanks Angela for pm'ing me too.
Lachie started Prep this year and it has done amazing things for his confidence. He is such an inquisitive thing and the questions haven't really stopped since he started talking (properly) at around 2.5, only thing is now his questions are much harder. They are doing Space this term at school and I know nothing, even DH did a few astronomy subjects at uni has to google for answers!
All the kids are well here. Emily is 7, Lachie, 5 (obviously), and Benji 3.5. They just grow up amazingly quickly don't they?
That's about it for me, life is still plodding along nicely
Will try and check in more often, but I have gotten rather slack at actually posting these days, I do read though
Posted 15 June 2009 - 05:21 PM
Angela sent me a PM also
Sorry to have neglected you guys don't worry the other two parents groups are neglected also LOL. I just dont have the time! But I promise I will try to pop in every so often to say hi
Kids are going good!
Bon is in grade 1 and loves it, doing REALLY well
Kaleb is in prep, loving it aswell, not doing too bad. He had grommets in last year his hearing was almost non existent because of the constant fluid in his ears 1 grommet has fallen out last month, unsure if the other is still in there. He says he can hear 'some things' so hmmmm. Got a hosp appt at the Mater next week, so will find out then.
Arkaydia is a little turd ROFL. Turned 2 in April. She sure gives us a run for our money! Such a little girl though its nice after having boys! She loves all her dollies and things & doing 'motherly' stuff, its very cute. One thing I can't stand is her and clothes she changes outfit at least 3 times a day and I cant stop her most of the time! sh*ts me lol. Won't let me choose what to put on her, she has to GRRRRR. We get some weird and wonderful combos I tell you!
Dinner is just about to be dished up, pete and kids are in shower so I best get it served.
A big hello to everyone!
Posted 18 June 2009 - 05:38 PM
OHHHHHHH Oldies HEY *waves* thanks Angela for rounding them up
Net...its been YEARS what you been up to?? I didnt even realise you had number 3!!!
Emilia Sorry I thought you were still with your inlaws
Jodes I agree school makes a huge difference!
Leanne havent seen you about for ages either! More babies?
Us...my baby is one tomorrow we just did a big group cake smash...6 babies Was lots of fun but ohhhh sooo messy!!! Still super busy and shoudl not be posting on be but cant help myself
Posted 18 June 2009 - 09:45 PM
No,. No more babies for me while living with the in laws thanks! Couldn't deal with that.
Mitchell has been asking when we will have another though.
Not much happening here, just working. Fun times.
Posted 19 June 2009 - 02:38 PM
Look at everyone dropping in Great to hear from you all
Leanne - We are about to start building soon. Our house is currently on the market, and once it sells we will start building. How much longer do you have until yours is finished?
Kaylene - Saw the photos of the cake smash on FB Looked like fun.
Net - Lovely to hear from you to. The kids seem to be going well
Jodes - It is nice to hear your family is going along nicely to.
I see some of our Apr04 bubs have started school already They grow so fast. Lily is starting next year as the cut off for Vic was 2 weeks after her birthday. She is loving kinder, but can't wait to get to school. She will be going to a small country school with only about 70 kids, as we are moving out of town. I think the smaller size will be good for her.
Zac is 2.5 now and hanging out to be able to go to kinder. It can be a real struggle to get him to leave when we drop Lily off.
Eamon is doing well to. He is 3 months old now and giving us lots of smiles He is very alert and loves watching what the other 2 are up to.
I hope you guys keep dropping in every so often. It was gettting pretty lonely in here with just Kaylene, Ang and I
Posted 22 June 2009 - 11:59 PM
Katy- We are probably about another yr off, fingers crossed it doesn't take that long though, just want the kids in the new school and settled in as soon as we can. Once we get through council and can get started it shouldn't take long to lock up stage with the product we are using.
We have our big a*se shed sitting here at the in laws that needs to go on the block and need a building licence to put the transportable on too. We will use that as a site office and somewhere for us to hang.
DH is looking at going from a 2/2 fly in fly out job to a 4/2! Money will be great but we might just struggle trying to owner build with him not here! haha
Im off to Adelaide on thurs, taking the kids to see Disney on Ice. $68 each way. Can't beat that from Perth.
Bye for now
Posted 24 June 2009 - 12:36 PM
Ohh Leanne a few more is always fun How the hell did you get $68 tickets!!! VERY lucky!!! Have fun!
Katy...S has been in school for 2 years!!! We have kindy at 3/4 2 days a week he went to last year and this year he is full time!!! and I love it (oh he does too )
Its bloody cold here atm, and I have gastro YUCKYUCKYUCK!
Hope you are all well
Posted 24 June 2009 - 02:28 PM
Kaylene - Lily is currently doing 10hrs a week at kinder, and she did 2.5hrs last year. It will be full time next year for her I still have to go and check out the school though Bad Mummy I hear very good things about it though.
Leanne - We have just signed on with our builder, and they should start in Sept. We are not even trying for owner builder, we just don't know enough. Hopefully ours will be built by March. Enjoy Disney on Ice
Posted 03 July 2009 - 11:55 PM
Hi Dee Ho everyone
Got back from Adelaide safe and sound however missed our flight home thanks to MIL not reading the itinerary properly. Apparently it wasn't "safer" in her hands.
The show was great and so many people from Perth too which was nice, but proves these things should come here.
Not much happening here as per usual. Just starting a new contract for work, not very exciting (and not that I signed the other one).
Get to watch Emma dance tomorrow, so that will be nice. Can't wait to see how unlike me she is, as I am so unco-ordinated it's not funny.
Best go, battery going to die very soon.
Posted 27 July 2009 - 12:21 PM
Sorry I have been a bit slack. I hurt my back a few weeks ago and was unable to sit at the computer for any length of time. We have also been madly looking for a rental, as we have to be out in 3 weeks. We have one, by the way. I'll try and drop back into tomorrow and post properly.
Posted 28 July 2009 - 03:20 PM
*waves* quiet in here agin isnt it???
Leanne gald you survived...even if you missed your flight...long walk? hahahahaha
Katy...hope your back is better, did you find anything????
Here busy and yet not...have had lots of newborns through here lately which is making me oh so clucky!!! Also received another lot of pettis which I am selling off
Posted 29 July 2009 - 02:17 PM
Thanks Kaylene, my back is heaps better. I had my last physio appointment yesterday. We have also found somewhere to live. It not to far away, so we are just going to shift in bits and pieces over a week. We have already packed a lot when we were decluttering to sell. Hopefully we can keep as much as possible in boxes to make the next move easier.
I love your pettis They are so cute.
Eamon has just woken, and now I have to go feed him. He eats so much. I am wondering if I should start him on solids as he just doesn't seem to be getting enough. He feeds 2.5hrly during the day and has gone back to 2 feeds at night. I knoe if I ask the MCHN though, she will tell me to hold off. I wish I could ask my Dr because I know she would give a reaoned anwer, (not just "thye should not start solids until 6months"), but by the time I could get in to see her, he will be 6 months anyway. Why do I have such a popular Dr ?
Did I mention Eamon was awake.........
