Hi Lovelies,

 

Hope everyone has had a great weekend, the weather today has been great - shame I'm in here right now - supposed to be working!!!! We spent this morning at Jarrod's soccer presentation, he is very proud of his trophy!!

 

Well after my first week of dieting I lost 3.7kg and 2cm off my waist, so I'm a happy little camper - Yay for me!!

 

Ella is doing well, she loves getting dirty it seems - down at the soccer fields this morning she was running around and (seemingly!) falling over in the dirty parts on purpose! It was pretty cute.

 

Well I'm going to go and do some work now, I know, not the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon, but it's gotta be done and I just think of the $$!!!

 

Love and hugs

Chrissie

Hi Everyone,

 

Just wanted to do some personals while I had a chance. We are all doing well here.

 

Chrissie - Well done on the weight loss! I have started my diet this week as well. Have the big weigh in tomorrow. Hopefully I have lost something!

 

Sheridan - I'm so sorry that you are feeling so down. Is there anything we can do? Please don't think you would bore us, we are here to help and to listen. I will PM you and Andy my details.

 

Andy - Are you up for a meet up?

 

Mish - Poor you and poor Hugo. I really hope everything clears up for him soon. Poor little mite seems to have one thing after another.

 

Rach - I'm so sorry that Miss Sophie is sick again and that you are feeling down. hugs coming your way. Wish I could give it to you in person.

 

Kate - Sounds like everything is going well with your cycle! Wishing you all the best of luck.

 

OK, that's all I can think of off the top of my head. Will try and be in here a bit more often so I can keep up!

 

Take care everyone.

Evening Ladies,

 

As promised, I am back. Thought I better not be greedy and just start the thread and then not post :tongue:

 

I can't remember anything much from the other thread but will do my best. I read it last night after a few drinks :wacko:

 

Grubb: I hope Hugo is doing ok?

 

Sheridan: Big {{{hugs}}} to you. Don't be embarrassed at all and know that we are here to listen anytime you want :D

 

Kate: I can't get over how much your FET costs. That is so expensive. I always thought that FET's were pretty cheap.

 

Rach: I hope that the new Paediatrician has some answers for you.

 

Chrissie: Wow, congratulations on the weight loss. That is huge!! I joined a gym about 7 weeks ago and have being going at least 4 times a week but haven't lost much weight. I am slowly toning up some of this flab though :D

 

We are all well. DH had a check up with the Oncologist a few weeks ago, including a CT scan and it was all good which is always a huge relief.

 

Deahna got her trophy for her ballet exam, she was so excited. She got to go up on stage to receive it and she couldn't stop grinning. Very proud Mummy moment :D

 

Mitchell is in fine form. He is very cute but so much a ratbag. We were at the shops the other day and walked past this old lady and he reached out and smacked her on the bum. :blush: Luckily, she thought it was very funny.

 

Had a lovely weekend. Had family photo's done today through the school and since we were all dressed nicely, we thought we'd go out for lunch.

 

Anyway, off to watch Oz Idol.

Sunday night already. The weekends go too fast :( We had a nice one though. Just hung around here yesterday and then today we went to a local festival in the morning.

 

And Xav learned a new trick today - how to climb out of his cot :blink: I put him down for a nap after lunch and he was mucking about knocking on the wall (a habit he has picked up) when I heard his door open and then he appeared with no pants on, just a nappy. He had been put down in a sleeping bag and wrapped (loosely) so he got himself out and then somehow managed to climb out. He was complaining about "sore legs" so I think he knocked himself getting out. So now we will have to see if he does it again, in which case I may just lower the sides of the cot so that he can get out and put a door knob cover on his door know so he can't get out. Liam never did this, so this is all new!

 

Teejay - Mitchell sounds like he would get on well with Xav LOL. Good thing the old lady didn't take offense!

 

Yvette - I am free on Thurdays and it looks like a lot more Tuesdays as my mothers group is pretty much dead these days. I would love to get together.

 

Sheridan - hope you are okay - we should get together once you are home.

 

Airedale - sounds good for your FET. How many embryos do you have left?

 

Grubb - how is Hugo going after his op? Are his ears still gunky? I hope that they don't hurt too much.

 

Chrissie - way to go on the weight loss!!

 

Rach - I'm sorry to hear that Sophie is still sick, you guys must be so frustrated :( I do hope that the specialist works something out for her soon.

 

Megs - yes, I'm leaving the toilet training until at least Jan now.

 

That's all I can see/remember for now. I've got to finish tidying up so better get off now.

What a day ......

 

Anna was awakeand not really whingeing but whingeing from 10pm til 3am.... I sat up and just nursed and rocked her for most of the night. I did try sleeping with her but she wanted to sleep on top of me so watched a v.bad Michael Caine movie & Quizmania instead :blush:

 

This morning she was super hot, listless and had a temp of 35 degrees....... a friend suggested that I take her to emergency which freaked me out because I didn't have "Mothers Instinct" and I didn't know what to do (DH was at work)... instead she slept all but 2 hours of today and this afternoon was back to her normal self. Hopefully she will sleep ok tonight. I am shattered.

 

Mish, Chaletgirl and Rach, I was thinking of you all today and was thinking that I am so sorry that I wasn't more supportive when your little ones were sick and how worried you all must have been especially when the canula was involved.

Mish, how did Hugo recover from the operation? How has he been today ?

Chaletgirl, how are you feeling?

 

Is anyone watching the Robbie Williams concert? I am shocked at how many people are there. It's huge. Most of them wouldn't even be able to see the massive screens.... am I the only one who thinks he is overrated ??? Then again, I think Chris Isaak is a total babe.

 

These FET tablets are making me feel terrible so off to bed.........am rambling now.

 

Night All.

Lots of chatting in here lately........I love logging on and hearing what you have all been up too.....

 

Well, it has only taken 3 days after the operation before young Hugo has started to go downhill.....arrgggghhh.......hes not too bad but I can tell that his ears are causing him grief and he is extremely demanding. Mum just called and was horrifed to hear her grandson howling.....he is so tired even though he only woke a few times last night (high temps again). He is normally having only one sleep a day but he has just gone down now so don't know what he will do for the rest of the day! Yesterday we were out all day at the track (dad was racing) and Hugo really enjoyed himself as he was kept occupied! Our GP (family friend) was also there and he too was shocked to hear that Hugo no longer has his grommets - he pretty much said "oh well...see you in a few days then huh".........knowing Hugo's history! I am going to ring my boss today and discuss with her as to whether I should be committing to this new role she offered me as I am concerned that I won't be reliable (due to Hugo) and maybe its best that I don't take it on......the GP thinks that Hugo will no doubt have the grommets put back in in the very near future! I am just devasated that I may have to make this decision but of course my child comes first - my career will have to take the back burner for awhile!

 

Hey how uncanny is this......Miss Megs and her tribe and the Grubbs are going on a mini holiday together in November to Rainbow bay..........the funny thing is that we will be staying in my uncles holiday unit and Megs has one in the same complex - she is unit 18 and we are #22......!

 

Oh cripe - Hugo is screaming.....will come back for personals later....

I can barely keep up!

 

Grubb, I have everything crossed that Hugo does not lapse into a prolonged illness again for you. His little body has had soo much happen to it! And I think your call to your boss is a sound idea, although it may never come to having to not take up the opportunity.

 

Airedale, I know exactly what you mean about not being supportive enough when Mish, Chaletgirl, Rach (and Megsy too with Jazzys arthritis ) It is very hard to comprehend just how traumatic it must have been for our mates when their children are so ill, and they were always tramping off to docs and specialists and hospitals until they got to the bottom of it. But you are being a tad hard on yourself, please blame it on the drugs. Annas' temp was not high, and her stillness was obviously extreme tiredness, and you must know that your instincts kick in when they need to. :D

 

Yvette, the picture was divine. You both look so happy with each other!

 

Andy, Xav is a little climbing monkey! I am forever wanting to freezeframe the moment that Spencer is in now, cause I have no idea what to do when he starts to independently get out of his bed etc. Maybe when the EB girls catch up you would not mind an interloper from the Central Coast???????

 

Teejay, how adorable about Mitchell! And fantastic news about your DH. I often want to ask about him, but don't want to be too nosy. We also seem to live each year from checkup to checkup, but it sounds like all is well for both our men.

 

Chrissie, tease. Where are the pics of Ella in the dirt? Where is the updated sig photo? And this from the ScrapBooking Queen of the Plains :)

 

Sheridan - It must be quite daunting to recognise that you are not coping as you would like. As it was for Rachel at the time too. You must do whatever you can to feel better again, darling girl. This may appear ignorant on my part, but it seems that depression often hits the most organised, super efficient, high achievers? Which must be why it is extra hard to deal with feeling a little out of control. I probably have it all wrong. You are in safe hands here. Rach would make an awesome counsellor, you are very lucky to be her number one client. Thinking of you xx

 

Rach - any improvement on Sophie? Congratulations on moving into your new role, and enjoying working hard! You know that they always say if you want something done, ask a busy person. You are that person in the saying.....

 

Sorry I cannot remember much more. I transferred two four cells on Saturday, after they were the only two that fertilised from 9 eggs. It was disappointing to say the least. Did not even make it to a Day three transfer let alone the Day 5 that is standard these days. I spent the weekend moping about the place, with Anzacboy staying a safe distance. When he finally discussed with me how I was feeling, he did bring me back to earth a bit by telling me how lucky we are to have Spence, that we can still do a few more cycles, that he is upset too, that we are still so much luckier than people who are true IVF veterans etc. I just ate chocolate and scowled at him. But today I agree, and am thinking ahead to the next cycle. It does annoy me though that we have a kitchen and bathroom that I would love to renovate ( very 70's mission brown ) a fence that needs to be put up outside our house ( we are on a corner block and everyone cuts through it, but it is a bit dangerous if we are backing the car out and cannot see small children etc ) and a wedding that I would love to have before I look like it is my third and not my first. And all of these things keep getting put off with each "charge it" IVF cycle. Oooooppppsss. I am still whinging aren't I???? ha ha ha!!!

 

Have a great day all. Sorry if I missed anyone.

Anzacgirl, as I said in the other thread, I'm really sorry about this fresh cycle, although it's not over yet, so hold onto a little bit of hope if you can. I can hear in your words that you are down so please come back in here more often so we can help pick you up a little. I can even tell some jokes to make you smile :o

 

Grubb, I was hoping you'd come in here and say Hugo has had a miraculous recovery. Sorry it's not to be mate. He was a little champ on Saturday, although I could see how full of gunk he was and obviously has been for ages now. I just don't know how he copes. I get sinus and I sook for days. That poor little guy must just generally feel unwell. Not sure what I'd do about the job thing. Won't even comment on that one. Tough one matey :mellow:

 

How cool is that about the unit. I had a feeling it was the same place. It will make things so much more fun & much easier staying in the same surrounds. Not to mention, the pool area is awesome and the sports club is just one block away. Kids love it there, meals are great! We'll have to be sure to take many happy snaps to post on EB!!!!

 

Airedale, I agree with Anzacgirl, you're being too hard on yourself. It's just enough to know that you girls are here sending us warm thoughts when we have sick kiddies. We don't expect anything else from you guys other than the words "thinking of you, hope your little one gets better soon". I'm so sorry for you that Anna is sick. Her temp is not high though, so you can take some comfort in that. Perhaps the wakefullness is relate to teeth?? Maybe eye teeth or molars...they can do all sorts of harm!! Her listlessness was possibly just tiredness from having such a wakeful night. It is so distressing having a sick bub. I feel for you as this is obviously the first time you've really felt the fear and it's just plain awful isn't it. I don't know that any of us have mothers instinct...it's just through sheer repetition and familiarity that I know what to do these days ;) I hope there's no repeat and you all get some rest hun.

 

Kaboo, I am soooo dreading that moment when Oscar realises he can climb out of his cot. I am not ready to do the whole big bed thing...it would be a nightmare...so lately, when Oscar has cried, I've actually gone into him fairly quickly, which is not the way things are usually run around here, but I just don't want him to have the time to figure it out IYKWIM.

 

Teejay, how funny about Mitchell smacking that woman's bum. Boy they start young don't they !!! Your proud mummy moment sounded perfect. Can't wait for those days :D And that's terrific news about DH. Must be a huge relief.

 

Yvette, good to see you more & more lately !!! Any more piccies to share?

 

Chrissie, congrats on the weight loss. That's a huge amount for the first week. Well done girl. I have to weigh in tomorrow. I "think" I've had a good week. Will let you all know.

 

Not much to add. Had a really busy weekend just doing "stuff". We bought a new fridge - side by side. Got a free Jamie Oliver cookware set with it, so gotta be happy with that. If only I could cook like him. Went shopping today to buy a new outfit for the Grubb dinner party in a few weeks time. Also spent $100 in Pumpkin Patch (why oh why do I leave the house :blink: ) and bought Jazzy some divine outfits. Supposed to be cleaning today but just can't be bothered. Changed all the sheets and now I have to wash them - forgot about that part of it :o Best go & stare inside the freezer for a while to see what we should have for dinner.

Hi girls,

 

Thought i'd crawl out of my hole and say hi!!Have been really bad with m/s all week but am now on drugs so hopefully i can start feeling human again!DH & Jaxon have been darlings and looking after me really well!

 

Anzacgirl-Sorry things didn't go better for you with your cycle but i'm sending lots of sticky vibes to your 2 embies!

 

Megs-Love the sound of your Jamie Oliver cookware set! I think that guy is such a cutie in a goofy kind of way!

 

Grubb-Geez you're having a rough time with Hugo's ears!You poor things i really feel for you.Is there are reason the grommets didn't work??What's to say that they'll work next time?I really hope you get it sorted out cause your little man must be in pain.

 

Kate-How has Anna been the last few days!Hope you have recovered from your sleepless night.Thinking of you with your FET.x

 

Andy-I dread the day Jaxon can climb out of his cot but thankfully i think it's awhile away cause i want to keep him in there as long s i can.Love the idea of the door knob cover :D

 

Teejay-I'm really pleased to hear that DH's CT scan went well,what a relief the must be.

 

Chrissie-Congarts on the weight loss!!That is an excellent achievement and just what you need to keep you motivated!YOU go girl!!

 

I'm off to have a lie down girls as my great sleeper woke at 6:30 this morning!!

Oh my God - screaming child here. Am slowly but surely losing what was left of my sanity!! :blink:

Sam has been having 'issues' with his sleeping for the last 10 days or so & is screaming the house down for at least 10 minutes at every sleep - it's wearing very thin to say the least. We know that it's just separation anxiety so I think we're just going to have to ride it out again with the controlled crying (it's worked a treat in the past but he's generally gotten over it after 3 or 4 days previously) It's so hard listening to this heartbroken sound, it takes all my self-control not to go in & just cuddle him to sleep but I know we'd only be making a rod for our back. Fingers crossed he goes back to his old, good sleeping habits soon. :unsure:

 

Megs - I do the staring at the freezer thing quite often too. Hope you got some devine intervention there! Started to do the stare this morning but then remembered we are going out for dinner for our 8 year Wedding Anniversay tonight so don't have to cook!! Yay!!

 

Anzacgirl - Sorry to hear your latest transfer did not go as well as you'd hoped. You know what they say though about that fat lady and everything...

 

Grubb - That poor little boy of yours, I can't believe he is still having trouble. That is such a tough decision you have to make regarding your work - I won't even try to offer any suggestions other than to say good luck! Sounds like a fun holiday you have planned though - will look forward to the pics.

 

Kate - I hope Anna is back to her lovely self by now. As the others have said you were being too hard on yourself about this 'mothers instinct' stuff - I know I've felt the same myself from time to time but honestly, how is someone suppossed to know what to do in every situation, especially since with babies there is so many first times for everything.

We watched a bit of the Robbie Williams concert & were just blown away by the size of the crowd too. I don't know if I could even handle being in a crowd that big let alone having to entertain them!

 

Kaboo - Xav climbing out of the cot already! Can wait for that day. Sam is starting to freak me out by climbing up on the dining table though - am starting to feel like I truly need to have octopus arms & eyes in the back of my head.

 

Teejay - LOL at Mitchell in the shops, what a cheeky monkey! Am so glad to hear your DH got the all clear too.

 

Hi to everyone else I missed. I want to go & continue the search for some of my past posts (am trying to collate a few from Sam's early days so keep for him). It's a bit funny though looking back in the old TTC threads & seeing everyone's new signatures (inc children pics) along with our discussions regarding the difficulties in having those same children. Sort of reassuring in a way to see that for so many of us it was worth all the effort.

 

Is anyone else disappointed that Dean is still on Oz Idol? - honestly if he didn't look like he does he would have been long gone ages ago IMO.

 

Oh the blessed sound of silence (took 15 minutes today)

 

Better be off

 

Annie

My son is sosososooss spoilt! I wasn't called into work today so because mum was here waiting to see if she was to have Hugo for the day and I had no plans for the day............we went shopping! Mum bought Hugo a wiggles car/bike...........he rode everyone in the shop but of course the wiggles one was the winner......it was $119 but it was last one in stock and a few of the stickers were coming off....mum talked them down to $79........it will stay at mums house! Its pretty cool!

 

Anyway after an awful morning yesterday Master Hugo came good (until dinner time that is).........he is relatively well but is forever tugging at his ears! I did call my boss yesterday and had a chat - she is yet to get back to me as she was going to discuss my situation with HR........she is thinking though that there may be another trainer who could fill in for me should I not be able to make it to work! She was really good about it and said though that if I don't take this role on that there will be another opportunity in the near future - so that is good to know!

 

Miss Chrissie....You are a legend...wow 3.7kgs. You will be a slim pin in no time! I was pretty stoked as I went to get weighed last week (not been for 3months) and I had lost 1.5kgs.....My mini goal is now 6kgs before xmas!

 

Yvette....how did you go at weigh in yesterday? Your amazing - 3 kids and already trying to loose your excess weight!

 

Teejay.....Great news that Hubby's results are still clear! Would have loved to have seen a photo of Deahna standing proud with her trophy! LOL at Master Mitchell - bet dad was proud of action......!!!!!

 

Kaboo.....What a clever dude Xav is.....I was thinking oh nah Hugo won't be doing that in a hurry but I was wrong......yesterday I found him dangling over the side as he had used his pillow and a few stuffed toys to give him the height....arrrgghhhh - and he is such a short ass too......he climbs everything! On Sunday he climbed from the bottom of a wire fence all the way to the top - on his own (the fence was around the race track - so quite high)

 

Kate.....I too think RW is overrated.....I love his music but don't see him as any candy that I would devour! I taped his concert and may put in on once I finish this post (Hugo is asleep). Poor Miss Anna she seems like she was just a bit out of sorts the other night - her temp was fine though - I was told not to stress too much unless its around 38.....I don't anyway cause its nothing for Hugo to hit that and alot higher! Panadol does work a treat - don't be afraid to use it!!! What FET tablets are you on? When will trf be?

 

Anzacgirl....Had to laugh as I found a table I sent you many months ago (I was 6 weeks PG)and I had written ALL my symptons for you to refer to.....want me to send it again? I have positive vibes for this new cookie.....think Choc Chip!!!!

 

Megs....You too had a weigh in today......and the loss was? I too want a Jamie Oliver cookware set....what exactly did it include? Where have you moved your stainless fridge to?

 

Wenjax.....See you cursed yourself with the M/s....have you tried the fruit tingles? LOL at Jaxon waking at 6.30..........if only Hugo would think that was a nice time rather than 5am.......you are lucky that he is such a good little boy - mmmmmmm wonder if the next one will be as placid.....hehehehehehehe

 

Annie......I am hearing ya girl.....hang in there - its just a faze Sam is going thru. "Issues" are hard work huh! I think Dean is alright.......obviously good looking - happy that the blonde chick was booted last night.........Sure Lavina has a great voice but when she talks she needs to shut it again as its embarrassing...hey bro! My favourites are Mutto (only cause he is a Gold Coast boy) and also Chris!

 

Anyone into Greys Anatomy? God I love that show! All Saints tonight!!!!

 

Well I am back to doing sh*t loads of washing again as Hugo has spewed the last two nights! Only because he has coughed and brought it up.......I bought him new dummies today - smaller ones as I also think that due to his enlarged tonsils the bigger ones were touching when he would cough or be lying on his back! Also back on the lactose free milk at night time......also think that the gunk from his ears is running down the back of his throat!

 

When he wakes we are going for a drive down to Coolangatta as they have sand sculptures on display on the beach. Shame I still can't post any photos as this dam software is not reading Windows XP.......Anyone using kodak software - version 6 and Windows XP......if so ......HELP! I have emailed their support area but its some little foreign person responding who doesn't seem to have a bloody clue either!!!!!

 

See ya later alligators!!!

Even though I have absolutely nothing to say I thought I'd better write something so when Mrs Grubb gets online tonight she gets that warm & fuzzy feeling that someone has replied & has something mega exciting to say.

Well currently Xav is sitting with dh in the lounge room watching Disney Channel. He should be in bed but dh (in his wisdom) thought it would be funny to put on Liam's glow in the dark alien mask, turn off the lights and go outside and look through the windows - which was funny for a 7yo but not a nearly 2yo! So when I put Xav to bed he woke up crying saying "I scared monster". Good work dh!

 

Grubb and Megs - how cool is going on holidays together - make sure you go out for some girly time and leave the kids with the dhs!

 

Grubb, how is Hugo today? I swear that the first year in daycare is just the pits. They spend half of the time at home with some sort of gunky illness.

 

Annie - hope that Sam's sleeping is improving.

 

Wendy - you poor thing, hopefully your m/s will ease off soon.

 

Megs - I've also been running in to Xav's room as soon as I hear him now. But he hasn't tried it again *fingers crossed* that he won't for a while. I don't want to do the big bed thing just yet!

 

Anzacgirl - sorry to hear that your cycle didn't go as well as hoped. I do know what you mean about having to put off stuff while your credit card gets a work out - it's is both annoying and frustrating. I always think that if you knew that in 1,2,3 cycles that it would definetly work then it would be better, it's the uncertainty of "if" let alone "when" it will work which is hard to deal with. Anyway, fingers still crossed for you. And if we do organise to get together then you (and all Sydney girls!) are most welcome to join us - it's no fun freaking out the eavesdroppers on the next table with stories of vag cams and needles without a big group!!

 

Kate - how is Anna now? Sorry that your friend freaked you out - but you did exactly what I would have done and it sounds like you did fine. If it makes you feel better, the only time that Liam was ever admitted to hospital was when he was just under 2 and I didn't think he was *that* sick, just a bad cough. Dh took him to the hospital (I was at work and thought dh was just overreacting) and it ended up being bad croup and we had to stay overnight. :unsure:

 

Now, I'm going to have to disagree with you about Robbie. I went to his 2003 concert and he was damn hot :8

 

Xav is now in bed and so far no "monster" talk. Dh has been spoken to about age appropriate behaviour. :huh:

 

Well, I'm getting tired. We had a training session for our netball team today at lunch time. We ran around for about 5 mins and I was knackered. I have no idea how I am going to last a whole game!!! I am so unfit.

 

Take care!

Hello All,

 

Might be a quick one as I am still to do breakfast and she is having lots of fun with the Westfield red balloon !!

 

Anna didn't really pick up until Sunday evening and it was just heartbreaking to see her so tired and hot. I wonder why her temp was so low (did drop to 34 on one reading but thought the new ear thingy wasn't working ) but she was wet from sweat... she's also had diarrhoea :huh:

 

Have been pretty busy and this warm weather is a great motivator. Went shopping yesterday for some summer clothes for Miss A. Loads of pink & white shorts, t-shirts and skirts plus the cutest skirt from Fred Bare and a couple of summer pj's. Went out for Mothers Group dinner last night and we have our first, 2nd pregnancy.

 

I admit that I was exhausted after the Steve Irwin memorial.... I think I cried for the full hour.... What a lovely and genuine and wonderful man he was.

 

Ooops must do breakfast but will be back with personals.

 

Kate

So Anzacgirl, will you be able to make it on the 3rd? We'd love to see you and Spencer! So far Andy and Sheridan are both coming - the more the merrier I'd say!

 

Take care everyone - oh and by the way, I have a job interview tomorrow. I'm hoping that it won't be the perfect job for me so I don't have to go back to work so quickly but figured I should go and find out in case it is the perfect job. Sigh.

See what I mean? I did not even do a load of washing until Spencer was two months old, and Yvette is back in the corporate marketplace just weeks after the birth of Jasper!!

 

Yvette, I would love to come. Thank you. And the 3rd gives me plenty of time to organise myself and my ONE child to get there on time :)

Hi All,

 

Hope you've all had good weeks - Jarrod lost his first tooth on Tuesday! So exciting! And just in time for his first school photos - the very next day!!!! LOL Ella has been great, very happy and chirpy...and getting very loud!

 

I've been soooo busy at work, I'm feeling exhausted. Wondering if I'm taking on too much, it *should* slow down soon, we'll see!

 

Anzacgirl - Don't worry love, I'm sure there's stuff that you're doing that we'd all be amazed at! Sorry last week wasn't so hot for you. Still got everything crossed though!

 

Yvette - You're a wonder woman! A true legend! I'd love to come on the 3rd. but unfortunately I'll be at work. I know where I'd rather be though!!! Have a great time!

 

Kate - Aren't the summer clothes for little girls just gorgeous? I've picked up some beautiful little things for Ella, haven't bought her any skirts yet though - on the lookout! I saw a beautiful pair of swimmers yesterday, but my BF in Perth has told me she's sending some over for Ella, so I didn't buy them...might have to pop back for them though! Glad that Anna is on the mend...hope your cycle is going well too.

 

Andy - OMH My DH would do something like that too! A practical joke that backfires!!!! Poor Xav, I hope he recovered and got a good nights sleep.

 

Mish - Fingers crossed Hugo is still well? Your mum sounds like my Dad - he can't resist buying things for the kids! It's lovely though. How'd the work thing go? I was in a similar predicament, a job came up last week that I know I could do blindfolded, but had a long think about it, and it would mean going full time, would only be a sideways move, and no more $$ - so I decided to stay with what I'm doing, definitely not ready to give up 2 days with my princess just yet!

 

Okay lovelies I can't see any more posts, so I'm going to go and start my day....been really good on my diet this week, but got on the scales a little while ago and it only says 0.8 down....fingers crossed it's really more than that!!!!!

 

Love and hugs

Chrissie

Grubb

Morning....

Being a naughty Grubb and not going to work today - I wasn't rostered on but I said no when they just called to see if I was available.....! I really should have gone in but I am being lazy and just wanted to hang at home for the day with no child! Bad I know but one has to do these things every now and then! I have taken on the Training role and had my training yesterday so as of next week I am working Mon to Thu for 5 weeks! Hugo is well so lets hope he stays that way but DH is taking some annual leave anyway so I shouldn't have to take any time off if by chance he goes downhill!

 

Waves to everyone......I am going to go and have a capuccino and watch the "Today" show.......not happy as Karl is on holidays....heheheheh

HI girls

 

Just a quicky from me, just thought I'd let you know Im still alive :tongue:

 

Not much happening here. The house hunting is endless fun :wacko: I have fallen in love with a house but it goes to auction tomorrow & theres no way we will be ready to buy tomorrow so I can only hope it gets passed in, but I doubt it will cause theres so much interest in it :mellow: so I probably shouldnt have started looking till I was ready to buy :( cause now I'll just be dissapointed & wont find another like it la de da de da you know how it goes :tongue:

 

Anyway, the kids are well & are over there temps, which turned out to be tonsilitis & we have a total of 8 teeth (josh) 6 teeth (olivia) & Jasmine has 2 teeth (yay, finally a tooth for Jasmine :smile::smile::smile: )

 

Better go, gotta make the kids lunch & dinner now before they wake up.

 

Oh, and just wanted to add, will BBL for personals & to catch up.

 

LOL, can you tell i'm in a rush.

We've had guys here concreting around our pool area so we can lay our pavers and I was out this arvo having my hair done, so the dogs were left inside. When I got home I immediately let them out to do "their business", but then I noticed a note saying "keep dogs inside, wet concrete"...the dogs were gone already, I just wasn't expecting them to do all the concreting they did (I thought they were only doing the water feature wall)...anyway, they had totally concreted around the pool and look what my dogs did...

If you notice the swooshy kinda stroke sections...well that's me trying to smooth it out with hubby's "Barbie Mate"...you know the flipper you use to flip your rissoles on the bbq....perhaps she died my hair blonde at the hairdressers without me knowing....

 

LOVE TO ALL MY BLONDE MATES !!!!! :D
