Hiya ladies

Haven't been in for ages, my laptop has been broke so have been on dh and couldn't remember my password

Christine - congrats on your pregnancy what a wonderful suprise

Troops - http://www.lyelldeerfarm.com/ is the deer farm my lovely... Thanks for the call today.

Jodi- I can't believe Chelsea is already 4 and a half months old where has that time flown?

Bec - great news about Miss S toilet training, we are about to start mitchell, he is always taking his nappy off.

AFM not a great deal going on.  Lachlan will be not be going to school next year he will be doing another year of Kindy, he just isn't socially ready just yet so we had an assessment done on his and they have agreed that another year would be better.

Connor - well we now have half custody, we are still hitting our heads on a brick wall with him though, he totally shuts off from the other family when he is at each parents house.

Mitty - my little terror, he is such a parrot and is so advanced he amazes DH and I. We are so bless for him in our lives.

We are also expecting another bundle of JOY... Due on the 12th of March based on LMP which is exciting as that is our wedding anirversary (can't spell tonight)

We are 7 weeks and xx days UTD and haven't told any family as yet so it is secret squirrel on Facebook...

Hi everyone

Just checking in really to see if anyone's heard from Kathreen. She had a cryptic message on FB the other day which has since disappeared, so I wondered if anybody has heard from her.

Hope everyone else is well.
