    Hello everyone!! I totally missed the new thread!! For all those I haven't met, my name is Michelle, I am 28, and have 3 beautiful kiddies. We are bumming around the house today, the rain is like a sedative for me, could curl up in bed and read a good book, but have 2 lively littlies running rings around me!!!

    Hellooo!
    god ive been slack.. well busy too, im in the middle of trying to complete about 12 mini essays and its really frustrating...
    im loving this weather, i know it can be slightly annoying for washing reasons but my dining room is now a chinese laundry.. i only wash the basics and put under the ceiling fan when we moved here we didnt think we needed to bring our dryer ( we were in a bigger house in sa and left heaps of crap there)
    ive had a pretty good run with specialists, the most we have had to wait is maybe a hour, but i didnt mind the stand still to be honest. to just sit. for abit.
    i have to run, i really hope everyone is going really well, i had twins in childcare yest and it was bliss!!! hubby home tomorrow so ill get more time to reply and stay in touch.
    .. how wicked was it that terri won big bro??? for all the **** they gave her when she went in...
    much love

    Didn't have anything planned for this Thursday but I'm free if anyone wants to meet. Probably with the weather, it would have to be Lollipops or somewhere under cover.

    Hi,
    My grandparents are visiting at the moment so I dont think we will be able to meet up with you guys tomorrow......by the looks of the weather I dont think I really want to drive anywhere..I went to pick Zander up from daycare this arvo and the roads through the city are flooding and greasy...Im not a fan of driving in the wet, mainly because Im scared of other crazy drivers and the stupid things they do in the wet

    Yeah its getting pretty messy around the place, our backyard is starting to flood in parts. kids are outside trying to collect rain... i told them australia needs the rain so they are out there trying to save it!!!
    im really excited, ive kept in bit hush coz i dont want to get ahead of myself but ben applied for a awesome job in groote eylandt ( a island 800kms of darwin) and its looking like he might get it... still might not theres one more interveiw to get through and a site visit ( they fly us out to have a look at the town, school and mine site) its just so exciting that we might be able to live together again full time, that he'll be home every night and the mula he'd make and we'd save is unreal. so please keep all your fingers crossed for us, this is a chance for me to get out of my own personal hell as i like to call it!!!
    im still loving the rain, its awesome! getting a bit cold now though.... and i dont have many jumpers...
    welp i best start getting organised to get ben from the airport...
    lots of luff

    Nicola, is Wyatt still sleeping through? Agree with you about drivers in the wet. Why do they think they need less space between the cars when its wet. Yesterday was very scary on the road and I didn't have to go far thankfully.

    Emma, good luck to Ben with the job interview. The kids will love having daddy home every night and that would take a huge load off you as well.

    Wyatt slept through 3 nights in a row...but we had to move him back to our room as my grandparents are in the spare room and he had a bad night...I think he needs to be in his own room. Zander had a bad night again also..I think because he is still stuffed up with a cold......hoping for sleep tonight..and yay the sun has come out

I went to the Target toysale yesterday and went a lil over bored , but i always do at xmas time, i also went to the kmart one and put a resonable big one on there too! As well as a swing set at Toyworld. Whats everyone got planned for this weekend? Not much here, my car has gone in to the service center today the gear box has been slipping, think it needs a new one hope its back by this arvo tho, doubt it tho .

    Hey,
    Thats great about your baby girl, brodie is just about crawling.. in a weird shuffling way.. its very cute. rori though, well she's a princess so she rolls.... atm she is really sick i was up all night with her because she was throwing up, its really awful to watch a 9mnth old dry reach and look at you to try and help them... i was helpless. She's sleeping alot today so hopefully sleeps it off, im spewing though as i was supposed to be at national premmies day today at the ronald mcdonald house, not for us!
    ben has his 2nd int for groot this arvo so fingers xd!
    we're having a garage sale in afew weeks i cant wait to clear up the house of all the stuff we just dont need.
    we always do the kmart one, i love it, its so easy to spend up. i went to both big w and kmart but just bought afew things as opposed to laybying.. our older 2 are getting bigger and we have decided to get them quads and bike gear for xmas.. figure be more useful and entertaining for them, their rooms are just chockas with toys and not tomention the 6 or so boxes in the garage i havent bothered to unpack yet....
    we arent doing much on the weekend, theres a family fun day out here that we will probably walk down and check out but we've both got alot of study to do so i guess thats our weekend gone, prob have a few drinks tonight and chill out though..
    hope everyone has a great weekend.
    much luff

    Hey em thats no good about your little one being sick! Thats has to be one off the hardest things in the world i think, seing ur kids sick or hurt and upset and not being able to do anything about it!! When Xav was about 8 months old he got gastro and it was horrid he was constantly throwing up and pooing and i couldnt help! I hope it all goes soon!

    Hi

    Emma that sux about Rori throwing up etc Where did she get it from???? Was it daycare?? Zander still has a cold with runny nose and coughing it has been lingering for about 2 weeks now and seems to be worse when he gets home from daycare...he has been waking the last couple of nights all night....just as Wyatt has started sleeping more. Went to the Target Toy sale yesterday and got a couple of things for the boys and got Zanders 2nd b'day present for November. They have a few toys but it doesnt stop me buying more..I love spoiling them We dont have any plans for this weekend, we went for a drive to Ingham last sunday and had lunch at Lucinda. Anyway gope you all have a good weekend, bye for now

    Hello!
    Yeah its been freezing, and like you i dont have much winter gear so im wearing the same stuff if i go out. i have to admit its nice wearing my uggies again!!
    we're not doing much, ben flew out to work this morning, he has to work an extra day for training next week so he's away a extra day and night its getting so hard.
    brodie is still recovering from being attacked by a tiny spider, he woke monday am with about 6 bites on his cheek and we couldnt work it out, he was throwing up and stuff monday and we thought it was roris gastro he had but i got him out yest and the spider came of his head after biting him another 4 times!!! so he's on meds again.. for something different.. he's always sick! rori is cutting a top tooth now so she'll have 3 very soon, and brodie has none but is crawling in a army shuffle way!! its way cool!!
    im having a garage sale this weekend, i have a jolly jumper and music mat, baby bath ( the new fisher price one) bouncer, bottle warmer, a swing for sale if anyone wants dibs before the garage sale sat.. its all near new and in great condition... also got a car bed that needs a little tlc and a good clean ( callum put cars stickers all over it!) and a lounge suite which needs some tlc aswell if anyone is interested...
    anyhow, i better start feeding the babies before all hell breaks loose and my routine today is thrown...
    much luff ladies...

    Hi everyone!

    Sounds like everyone is loving the cold haha!! I hate it, the kids love playing outside but with the wind I have been trying to keep them inside. Which is not only a challenge but also results in my house being destroyed!!

    I haven't even been to the target toy sale yet!! It is prob over by now!! I always get caught cause my lovely daughters always change their minds on what they want by the time xmas rolls around, so I have a cupboard full of stuff they don't want!! So this year I have decided to wait. They have all had their b'days also, so no need to buy anything really!!!

    Shame I am not having a bubba Emma, sounds like you have some great stuff for sale. I need to do a huge baby/toy clean out and have a garage sale also. The only thing I really want is a 2nd high chair for my Mum's house when my little man is there. Is hard trying to sit him on your lap to feed him food!!

    Anyway, hope everyone is well, will try and pop in more often!

    What about the kitchen shop at Stockland (robins kitchen i think it is?) or house at castle town. I would ring them save driving everywhere! Or there is an awesome cake shop on tavern st, Janines cake art i think - great shop they have heaps of stuff. Good Luck!
