Hugest congratulations Cass xx Do you guys have names picked out?

 

Nothing new here. Same old :rofl:

Rach I am hoping to be up your way in a few weeks. We went to Billabongs for lunch on the 23rd and then to Maitland Park, the one with the pool next to it. The kids had a blast so might try the pool next time!

Hello Junies,

 

A huge Congrats to Cass, how exciting! :D

Rach I watched that 16 & pregnant show, they had every episode and the reunion show in one afternoon here. I admit I bawled my eyes out when the last couple adopted out their daughter, they were so strong!

 

Our family is on holidays ATM, staying at the house where DH and I were married. :wub: Kids are enjoying the getaway.

We are returning home on Friday, and have both kids booked in for intensive swimming lessons for the next two weeks after that. We will also be working hard to get our garden cleaned up as we host a BIG Australia Day BBQ at our house each year.

2009 was a good year for us. With me going back to studying and me taking the time to go walking for 1-2 hours a night with my dog, mum and sister 4-5 nights a week I feel happy and relaxed. Of course finacially it is hard with me not working and both of our cars dying (at this stage we have only replaced one of them so still need to find another), however money doesn't buy happiness and I feel so content with where we are in life. My returning to study is better for our future.

DS finished his first year of school (prep), he loved it and did so well. I was amazed at how quickly he went from reading simple words like it, sit, fit, bit, at, sat, bat, rat etc. to reading about ten chapter books this year. :thumbs:

DD is VERY excited about starting 3 year old kinder this year, and it will be cute to see her make friends of her own, instead of DS' friends younger siblings that are all 6 months older or younger and therefore wont be in the same kinder then school year as her.

We had an enjoyable New Year's Eve at a friend's house enjoying champagne & a yummy BBQ, and could see the fireworks from their backyard that overlooked the river. Both kids stayed up til midnight and slept til 9 AM which was awesome.

:omg:Leah I bawled my eyes out with that adoption story too. I couldn't believe their parents lack of support. The two kids were so strong and it was such a completely self less decision to give their daughter a better life. The couple that adopted her were lovely.

 

Lara - We were supposed to be going on hols but of course it didn't happen... :( I am not impressed but hey what can i do? I am planning a holiday in October - probably camping at coffs or Forster. The EA Active is awesome. I highly recommend it. It is only 30 mins 4 times per week - so is doable. I like that is not every day! :)

 

 

Mell - Good Luck with the testing.

 

Okey better go. Tomorrow is daycare day so DH & I are going to clean our house top to bottom and clean out the spare room, as my sis is arriving next Wed for a week. It sucks cause I will be working Wed, thurs, Fri, Mon, Tues, Wed when she is here, but we will have the nights and of course the weekend.

Hey ladies!

 

Hope everyone has a fantastic 2010!

 

We have just bought a Prado so we can get out and about having fun as a family a bit more - camping & 4x4ing. Should be good.

 

Chayse is good, some good tanties happening but other than that is progressing well.

 

Seth is good, we hve a scan in two weeks to see how the hips are going - hoping we can be harness free after that!

 

I'm heading back to work at the end of Feb so will be madly trying to things back in order here (after xmas period) and get a routine in place that we can follow.

 

Chat soon.

Hi girls,

 

I think it is time we rekindle the love in Junies. It has been so quiet in here lately.

 

So what has everybody been up to?

 

hugs

So what has everybody been up to?


Daycare started back this week, thank heavens, i was going nuts!! Been having some nice time with just Tahlia and Kaity before Tahlia starts school, next week im taking her and Kaity to the movies to see the princess and the frog.

Not sure if i mentioned it or not, but Kaity met her big sister and A's ex-wife is just awesome! That meeting sparked contact from A telling me to stay away from his only daughter, and threatening me.

I dont want to be here, in this house. Clearly Kevin hasnt changed much, in regards to trying to control where i am, and for how long.

I have been to the police about A much to Kevins disgust, he thinks i should just worry about myself and my kids and not him or his ex-wife, but ummm, hello, dude the guy knows where i live and has told me that "it would be a shame if something was to happen, and that this(beating up ex wifes new BF) is just the beginning". Police wont do diddly squat though because his threats are through FB and not written on paper, or my email(so email and FB are different in what way exactly??)

Kids driving me up the wall, pretty sure i mentioned that though!

Dont know if i mentioned this either, but my niece who was with me at Kaitlyns birth is pregnant. She is 17(will be 18 when bub arrives) so i big shock, but i knew it would eventually happen. Her BF and his family are there for her, as is myself and her dad. She is yet to tell her Nan(who she lives with) or her mother.

My brother and his fiance are getting married in May, so hopefully i can attend(in NZ). I guess they will be TTC again soon and hopefully this is their time.

I think thats it. Will BBL if i remember something else :) Edited by ~gemma~

:waves: Junies,

 

My girls this morning:

I think it is time we rekindle the love in Junies. It has been so quiet in here lately.

 

Well get started then! :D

 

What are everyone's plans for 2010?

 

I have DS starting high school in a couple of weeks. I hope to get a part time job soon, preferably evenings or weekends although for the right job, I would put the girls in childcare during the week. I AM going to lose weight and get buff this year, no ifs, ands or buts about it, i'm going to have a FULL FAMILY portrait this year at xmas time and I want to look beautiful!!!!

 

I'm going to get everyone into a routine, well except maybe DP, he seems to be my routine disruptor. I'm starting with ALL children in bed by 8pm, as it's the only way I get any time to myself. I also need to work on housework and meal planning. I need to do these things so I have time to take care of myself, everything I need or want is being swallowed up in someone else always wanting or needing something. I look and feel old and haggidy and i'm only 32 FGS!!!!

 

We didn't end up going to Adelaide at Xmas time, so i'm thinking we will try for June/July before the school holidays so we can have a more relaxed trip, ie not caught up in xmas rush or school holiday rush.

 

BBS - gotta check my chook, i'm perfecting my chook cooking skills so I can try a turkey lol

Ok so we are rekindling the love - great idea :D

 

So what has everybody been up to?

Well Zoe went back to Day care this week so I've had a nice 3 day of doing what I want. She was well and truely ready to go back to as she's been asking when she'll see her friends again. On Monday I went through her room and did a big clean out. Didn't get rid of many toys but I sorted out a heap of her clothes and also took out some of the baby stuff we still had in the top of her wardrobe and put it in the spare room. I also cleaned out my cupboards of things I no longer wear (and made room for new stuff!). Wednesday I had to pick my dad up from the bus and drop him at Royal Adelaide Golf Course so I called into Harbour Town on the way home and bought myself a new work suit which came with a free shirt so now i have a new suit and shoes to wear on my return to work on Monday.

 

Yesterday I went to gym then had my nails done, my eyebrows waxed and made sausage rolls and home made pasta.

 

Today we've been to the beach with friends until 1 pm and later this afternoon I will go and catch up with some other friends for drinks.

 

Back to work on Monday which I am ok about, I'm keen to get the family back into our usual routine.

 

What are everyone's plans for 2010?

I'm not normally one for new years resolutions but I do have a few things I want to achieve in 2010. By the end of February I will have reached my goal weight - only 4 kgs to go! To do this I need to go back to work and stop eating all day :D

 

2010 is the year the house is finally going to have all the work finished that DH has given up on. So I need a tiler, a plasterer, a gas plumber and an electrician and I need to learn how to garden! I am hopeless at organising such things but clearly DH never is so I'll do it! Also want to get the front yard looking respectable again.

 

And the other thing I'd like to achieve is a better work life balance. I think my new Executive Assistant role will actually help me to do this because my new boss doesn't appear to be the sort of person who judges you by how long you spend in the office. Having the last few weeks off has taught me that a lot of the problems we have in the evening could easily be fixed if I just got home from work earlier (and DH helped a bit more but I need to realise I should only concentrate on the things I can truely fix!) so I'm going to try to take advantage of the days things are not so busy and leave work at 5 pm instead of feeling like I *should* always stay until 5.30. I'm also going to dress more professionally for work, not that I dress badly but I think people respect you more if you dress well and that way it's easier to bluff them if you don't know what you are doing!!!

 

Next.......
