OMG Congratulations Bec. Thats wonderful news!

I've just had the hardest swimming lesson with Alex ever. He had a tantrum in the pool so I made him sit on the edge till he calmed down. Came home stressed out and he has been an angel since. Arghhh!

2 more sleeps till we go away. Trying to clean the house but keep getting distracted then I need to repack the suitcase.

And I really need a new picture of Alex as my sig.

Congrats Bec!!!

Off to WA 2nd Dec til the 7th I think. I'm not sure who in our group is over that way, but meeting up would be awesome biggrin.gif Sonia are you over that way? I'll be staying in a hotel pretty central I assume for a night or 2. My flight gets in close to midnight the first night haha midnight cocktails may be on the agenda... or sleep... see how we feel.

Yep lonely me in WA.

Ok I've packed my bags and ready to go - very much need to get my legs waxed in the morning between getting the boys haircuts and dropping off the Dog to the kennels (my poor baby)

And then just finish off housework - only got to mop the floors but I'm sure I will have to find something to keep busy. I need to run Alex's energy off somehow so he has a late nap.

mmRead you update on fb Bec and thought... I knew that old news Tounge1.gif But again congats!!!!


I did not expect it, but have met THE most awesome dude. I have met him once, but chatted with him for a couple of weeks. Last weekend he paid for all and we had a couple of drinks after lunch.  But OMG he has caught my attention. This week he sent me flowers and chocolates... pink flowers as he knew that was my favourite colour!!!!!!!! He says he wants to treat me like a  princess... I just have to chill out and let him... big ask Tounge1.gif We will meet again this weekend, he's asked if he can hold my hand... how cute Tounge1.gif  I've basically said if he holds my interest, go for it, I may not get bored and we may continue seeing each other Tounge1.gif So he is trying his hardest. This weekend we will be on the gold coast together and he is keeping my interest and keeping things interesting. He has 2 surprises planned, I love it!!!!!!! I think I may be hooked ladies.. .time will tell. He seems like sincere guy though.

yeah Mel! Here's hoping he can keep you interest...... flowers and choccies is a good start!

Congrats Bec......

Hell yeah, he can keep trying to impress me, I won't complain :DHe's very good for my ego continually dishing out the compliments. His attention to detail is great also, unlike a lot of men he actually listens and remembers everything I say!

He bought me a ticket to the Big Day Out <3 I thought that was a little crazy as he had to buy them on ebay as they sold out so quick and pay much more than they are worth. I said what if we aren't even seeing each other by then! But he reckons we will be LMAO Have to love his confidence. I feel so comfortable with him, we have quite similar personalities, both a bit cheeky and out there.  I'm scaring myself because we talk daily and I think about him a lot. I haven't clicked with someone like this for a long time. So here's hoping it continues to go well biggrin.gif

Aww Mel that sounds great. I am being spoilt at the moment too, (think it could be Joel attempting to get me interested in DTD again lol) he booked me in for a cut and colour tonight, just don't know what to do...

Congratulations Bec wub.gif

Well we had our Morphology scan this morning and.....

Our SON is healthy and growing well, he's measuring a week ahead!  eexcite.gif

I cried and my heart was hammering when she told us Bunny's gender!!! I'm so happy - a pigeon pair!
I feel so lucky!
DH is in a tiny bit of shock, he was hoping for another girl and wonders how he'll go being a father to a little boy, but I know he'll be just wonderful.

Still can't believe it, even though I saw his scrotum and penis myself! I asked her if she could just check again before the scan ended and she said that she's very very sure, and that she won't change her opinion laughing2.gif

I can't wait to start on the nursery!!!!! I have soooooo many ideas!

Sorry for no personals, I'm just to excited - I'm over the moon ddance.gif

and here's our little man wub.gif

Nom nom nom Kat! Sounds delicious, he he. What a thoughtful thing for J to do.

Congratulations Bec.  Wow, number 4! I hope this pregnancy is m/s free too.

Marika, great news on your babyboy.gif . Your DH will be an awesome dad to a little boy wub.gif My BIL was worried too, but copes brilliantly. They were expecting a DD2 right up until DS1 arrived, so he had no prep time!

Yay Mel. Sounds promising, don't let him off too lightly with the flowers etc. He's started a precedent there, for sure.

Yuck, it's the middle of the night. DH is away and the girls are being a bit unsettled. I can't sleep because it's so windy and the hail and wind is rattling my bedroom window with the broken latch... lol, it's a bit "horror movie", really! I'm going to make myself a hot chocolate and head to bed. Tomorrow's going to hurt with so little sleep. Oh well, I might put a couple of DVDs on for the girls and lie on the couch biggrin.gif - it works for DH!

Take care all.

Congrats again Marika, though I read your news on facebook biggrin.gif

I had the most awesome weekend! My new male friend, who I shall call H took me to dinner and a show at Jupiters casino on the gold coast. The show was fantastic, the company was better biggrin.gif He held my hand nawwwww.  Had such a fabulous time with him, I'm pretty smitten.

Then last night I went to the paramore concert and that was fan-fckn-tastic. Got right up the front with a great view, danced and jumped around, was ace. My friend got some good photos, can't wait to see them. When they sung the song The Only Exception, it made me think of H so I told him and he replied that the song is so us <3 I think he's definitely a keeper. It feels like we have known each other longer than we have. I'm very happy at the moment, it rocks big time. He wants me to go to his brothers wedding... gee meeting the whole family, that kinda freaks me out LOL

Also I am moving soon and am so thankful to have a friend that works in real estate, she has helped me find the most perfect place to live biggrin.gif biggrin.gif I went for a viewing today and fell in love. The kids loved it also. A fresh new start away from the negative memories and energy this place holds biggrin.gif

So many things have changed in my life the last year, all for the better original.gif I can't remember being happier, touch wood it continues.

Hi Girls.

Back to reality. Had a great time in Bali and really didn't want to come home.

Alex cracked his head open the 2nd day we were there but that was about the worse thing that happened and he has a cute scar on top of his forehead to show off in future. He has had another growth spurt and has started to talk alot more (and making more sense)

Marika - Congratulations on a boy! Have you thought about names yet?

Mel - Sounds like the start of something. Lucky girl going to Jupiters Casino - I remember passing out when I was 21 in the toilets there fun times. When are you moving?

Dinners ready - haven't had to cook yet yeah for hubby being in holiday mode and wanting real food.


#24 *Mumma-to-A*

Posted 02 November 2010 - 12:43 AM

Just for Bec - I came in to say how sorry I am for you. I don't know what to say or what would even comfort you at this time so sending you a big virtual hug instead.
