    Kellee we all miss out I miss out all the time on what is going on & I'm here all the time LOL. I don't know whats going on with my ticker, sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn't LOL... sort of like me.



    Things are going well here, Matilda's still sick and I've been a bit sick as well. Father's Day, I don't even know what to do LOL. I had Matilda do some really cool paintings & I was going to print out a poem & stick it on one and get a photo done of Matilda & Pete & put it on another so the paintings are the background... bit arty so I'm hoping it works & I can find a frame or do something with them.

    Christy- sounds like a lovely present to me.

    Kellee- don't worry I am a bit out of the loop too atm, just can't seem to put everyones news into my head and have it stay there lol

    Well the baby (my baby) turns 2 tomorrow. So I am very sad, had a little teary this morning when I was giving her cuddles. I don't know what I will do when she gets even bigger. It is so hard to be at the end of having kids and know there will be no more. I rea;lly envy you girls who are just starting lol, don't get me wrong I love all my kids, just love the baby stage so much and feel so sad to think I will never be a new mummy again , *sob sob* Enough blubbering! well as Jess was born on my cousins dbay we have a party for her 21stat the pub for lunch tomorrow and we will have a get together for jess in the late arvo/night. So a big long day it will be lol but fun too cos jess will get to see everyone in the family for her bday this year.
    Ireally need to clean up but am waiting for the seing machine man to come and show me how to pull my machine apart. I am having a tension problem as threads are stuck in the top tenisoner, bbut I didn't want to pull it apart and muck it up, so he is going to come and show me how to do it properly, luckily he is one of FIL's mates. So he should be here soon, if he's not here in bout 15mins I will get arron to call him and see where he is. I have towels to embroider for my cousins bday present tonight. Plus I want to sew more xmas designs.sewed a complete set so need to do some others.

    Have scrapped madly the past few days and did 17pages bf I ran out of doublesided tape lol Prob won't touch it again now till next week

    Jo- Josh woke up and threw up and was really sick all day yesterday. He had a temp this morning but has been up and around so hopefully he is feeling better tomorrow. he also has an ear infection to fight so the gastro was something he didn't need.
    hope you all have a lovely weekend
    hugs Michelle

    Hello girls,

    popping in again quickly. My mom was just here with SIL and her two kids (my brother's wife and kids). It was fun as the girl is same age as Wolf (6 weeks older) and the boy 2 years older, so great playmates. He actually doesn't like Mia much (I do have to say that she is quite a piece of work, she hits a lot and is quite violent in general and very loud and chucks heaps of temper tantrums) but he loves Till and the two of them just play for hours on end together.

    Zara is still coughing. Poor thing. Thanks for all the well wishes! The fever is finally gone though, so that's good. The nights have still been crap... Wolf's sleeping through of course did not last.... bugger...

    Michelle - happy (belated) birthday, Jess!! Hope you had a great day! What did you do? I am wondering whether we should make a big(ger) party for Wolf in Nov in Oz or not...
    Don't apologise for feeling sad over your baby growing up. I look at Zara and she is 6 months and sitting up and eating solids and I keep thinking "yeah, I want another one" I love the baby face, I love the newborn part especially - when they are so tiny and ... awwwwwwwe I better shut up. This is when I fell pregnant last time... 6 months after Wolf's birth... so I better cross my legs and not think about that ... lol.
    I hope Josh is doing better.

    Arrr, miss cranky pants is crying again... she is just sooooo cranky with that cold... what happend to my content little sleeper?

    (5 mins later)
    ANyway, where was I

    Tegan .. can't wait to see some piccies!!!

    oh, re. the move: we are moving at the end of September. I am not looking fwd to it... well, the move that is... cause I'll be doing all of the packing (naturally... why is it that it's always the women stuck with the crap-work?) Still waiting for a semi-decent quote that isn't half an average annual salary... you just get ripped off here in London for everything...

    We also gave notice this week to our tenants in Manly. I am soooooooo excited about reclaiming our property! Whoopie! We will move our stuff back in in the beginning of Nov so it's all ready for our return to Oz in mid/late Nov! (going back for 3 months, very excited!)

    Wolf is doing well. He is talking and talking so much in both German and English. Some words he still can't quite say (he keeps saying "Hokla" for "Helicopter") but others are really understandable (I hope at least... or maybe it's just me who understands what he says, lol)

    Do you get Fireman Sam in Australia? Well, he has replaced Bob the Builder currently as favourite. We have bought 3 DVDs and Wolf gets to watch 1 in the morning and DH, Zara and I get to sleep another 45 mins while he watches happily in our bed. I feel a bit bad using the DVD as a babysitter but 6 o'clock is just WAY too early for me ....

    hey irls

    Snowy I didnt know you were returning to Australia, is it just a long holiday and then to switzerland or have things changed. PMSL at the crossing of your legs lol. Are you planning on more kids? The thing is having babies is easy to me, its as they get older affording them, like now I have 2 t school and it is expensive, imagine when there are 4at school!! We didn't have a big party for Jess, but you having a party when you get back to Aust sounds like a good idea. Do you have lots of family here? My kids get a big 1st bday and then a big 5th (with friends) and then my plan is a big 13th to celebrate teenagerism pmsl It just gets too expensive Jess and Jemma's 1st bdays cost us bt $300 and $400. Arrons mum is from a big family and most have kids now so we end up with more than 100 people every time

    Tegan- hope you had a beautiful day and gt loads of gorgeous pics. Can't wait to see them either. Hope you are getting some sort of honeymoon too.

    we had such a busy weekend and fathers day went well
    hope all your dh's had a good fathers day too

    Hi to everyone else

    Hi Girls, sorry it's been a while since I've posted. We have had family/friends visiting every weekend for a month and it dosn't stop until mid October - then the spring racing starts and then it's Christmas but I will try harder. I need to do a massive house clean so don't have time to type heaps but wanted to congratulates Mel on your bubba - it's so exciting and sounds like everything is going your way! Have a great day girls!

    hey girls
    guerss what I did today
    I rode 10klms on the exercise bike, lol it is the 2nd time I have been on it since I got it for xmas
    I am planning to do that everyday for the next couple of weeks, tryin to shape up.

    Oh MEl I hope you feel better soon and it doesn't last long MS is just so awful isn't it?

    Nikbrad- sounds like you are very busy, hope you do get someresting time LOL hope I do to

    well I have worked out what date e will fly to Mackay next April so now will just try to fis the cheapest flights I can. ATM they Are $215 each and we have to pay for 6 airfares, that is one way, so I was hoping to get then for about $200 or less. I thnk I will just wait and see what happens with the next sale, the last sale only went till March 07 so there should be a sale soon which includes APRIL.

    well I think I will head off to bed, feeling buggered, left arron to write an assignment and visited 2 gfs to deliver things they were paying me to sew. So did some chatting tonight which was nice.
    hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow

    Hi all, I have had a horrible cold the last few days so have been MIA, but am feeling much better now. Got sunburnt when I did the markets on Saturday, which didn't help - when will I learn?

    Unfortunately Freya's mega sleep was a one-off, she has been all over the place since. Kaleb is good. When we were at the pub last week, they had a magna doodle in the playroom that he loved. I got one through the Heinz baby food label thing last year but put it away because it was for ages 3+, but I got it out and took all the magnet bits out, and Kaleb loves it, he carries it everywhere, and he can draw to his heart's content with no mess!

    OK, sounds like nap time is over already, but will be back to do personals soon! Hope you are all well!

    I love magna doodles too Jo, the no mess and no running out of paper or having pencils to sharpen is great. What a bugger Freya didn't continue her sleep pattern, but at least she was nice to you for one night.

    Went to gym, stopped at a gfs and then came home to sew. Was planning to meet an old school friend tomorrow but she has had to cancel again so will be next week now. People just have such busy lives it's hard to fit everything in. Josh has gone to play at a friends and while I was out arron vacced the house and I pmsl cos the vac is so ****ty, and as soon as he finished he asked me how much money we had cos he wants to go buy a new vac. Ours is a piece of crap. But I said no cos we just don't hve the money
    My plan is to get another one when we pay enough of the fridge off to fit it ont he buyers edge interest free card. Which isn't now.

    anyway best keep moving, hope all the bubs are looking after their mummies and daddies LOL

    Michelle - yep, just a quick stop in Oz. We'll be there for 2.5 months roughly. Luckily we can work from anywhere in the world as long as we have internet connection. We will basically move to Switzerland and then after a month go to Oz... bit hectic and not much time to settle in but hey...

    Mel, lol, yep, I know once is enough = Zara.... SO I am definitely crossing my legs this time.

    NOt much to report from this end. Had a horrific night with DH throwing up 4 times. I hope it was food poisoning and not a bug... don't want Wolf and Zara to get sick. The kids slept through... doH! totally wasted on me... of course...

    oh Snowy hope your Dh fels better soon. What a bummer missing out on a good nights sleep. Sounds like you have an amazingly interesting life, with all the country hopping you guys have done.

    My back is so sore nad so are my legs, I think 10klms was a bit far straight off, I think I may need to down grade myself to 5klms a day until I build up some fitness. I also have a problem with a muscle in my abdomen, I went to do a sit up and my muscle right up nea my ribs cramped, it is very scary. I am thinking I should go to the drs, arron says it is due to my abdominal mucsles being so weak. Hope I can strengthen them cos I don't like the feeling

    Howdy all,

    Gosh, I really must get on here more often! You gals are just too fast for me. You type too much! I thought Id better post here before I go away on the weekend or I would have an entire thread to read by the time I get back! Ill do my best to do personals while Im letting Bob The Builder babysit (naughty Mummy!), but Im not sure how long Ill have! Here goes

    Mitch HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESSICA! My goodness how time flies! And good girl on the exercise bike. I did 15 kms today and some weight and an hour and a half walk! I hope that you see some results soon. What a cute pic of Jessica too.

    Jo sorry you havent been feeling well. Bugger Freya getting your hopes up too! I hate it when they do that. Good idea with the magna doodle. Might have to get one for my man.

    Tegan congratulations! I hope you had a lovely day and I cant wait to hear about it.

    Snowy Glad you and the kids had a good time with SILs family. It would be nice for the kids to have family so close in age. Mine are the only grandkids on either side so poor little Charlie gets a bit lonely sometimes. LOL at feeling clucky too. Toby is only 3 months old and I still feel clucky sometimes! There must be something wrong with us Poor DH. And why do kids always know the worst times to sleep? Little buggers!

    Mel would love to catch up when youre back in Brisbane. North Lakes is only about half an hour away from me and I could come and visit you and meet my brother for lunch or something. Sorry to hear that youve got m/s. Did you have it for long with Eliana? Hope its short-lived.

    Sorry if Ive missed anyone. Not much has been happening here. The weight is finally starting to come off Ive lost about 8 kg so far and have four more left to go. I reckon I can do that in 4 weeks. Shame I wont be nice and toned, but thats what happens when you have kids and then have a wedding to go to so soon after. Charlie is being really great. Hes doing an alphabet puzzle as I type and hes doing so well. Hes starting to say a few more words a version of Bob (as in The Builder) and egg but only with a lot of convincing. I hope he starts saying a bit more soon (this takes his total number of words to seven) otherwise Ill get worried. Hes also not as worried any more about Toby crying which is WONDERFUL. Makes life so much easier. He doesnt wake up in the night when Toby cries anymore so hes getting a bit more sleep and hes happier. Were setting up an area downstairs that he can run around in (when DH finally cleans out the garage to make some room) so hell have fun when we get that done. Were going away on the weekend with my Mum, Dad, brother and almost SIL for my Dads 50th, and well be able to take Charlie to the beach which will be lovely. Dont write too much while Im away or Ill have too much to catch up on!

    Anyway, Ill stop waffling now. Id better switch off Bob, even though someone will be unimpressed! Hope youre all well.

    Hi everyone, hope you're all having a lovely day. The wind here in Brissy is shocking today, was going to take the kids to the park but don't fancy going out in this weather.

    Kellee, hope you have a fantastic weekend away! Glad to hear Charlie is doing so well, what a relief re: Toby's crying. Kaleb still gets the odd moment where he joins in too, but it's definitely less than before.

    Snowy, hope DH is better now and that the kids avoided it! Bugger about missing out on a sleep-through night, how typical is that!

    Mitch, how's your ab muscle going? It does sound a bit scary, did you go to the dr? My ab muscles separated when I was pg...they did with Kaleb, I worked on getting them back together only for them to split like a banana skin when I was pg with Freya. Anyway, the physio said sit ups were out till I get them tight again, so maybe this is what's happening with you?

    Took Kaleb on a train for the first time yesterday...had to go into town to do a pre-election ballot for Saturday's state election, and Kaleb has just started developing a fascination with trains, so thought it'd be a good opportunity. He loved it, he was absolutely spellbound the whole way...ah, the simplest things!

    Hey Jo it does sound like what happened to me, what did you do to strengthen them, cos I need to do somthing. Arron asked the lady at the gym and she agreed with what you said. Clever girl you are. Now I have a lump on the side of my boob bt the armpit and boob, I think it is a muscle, prob from my bra rubbing, it is very sore, and of course when you feel a lump you thiink of the big C so I am a little stressed, but almost sure it is nothing. I am going to see if the pain goes away by mon and if not will head to the drs lol. Sounds like I am falling apart.

    So no rral personals, flying through as usual.

    Jess had her 2y health ass, she is 83.5cms and 10.76kgs so still small lol Oh well didn't expect much but thought she would be at least 11kgs. SHe staced 11 blocks in a tower which the MCHN thought was very good lol, but she refused to kick a ball or throw it either. So our little chicy is still little although prob advanced in most other areas.

    Just finished paying bills online and need to do some tidying and then gonna fire up the sewing machine AGAIN!! Have more ideas than time in the day lol Made a price list last night and found I had things on it I haven't yet made lol Better do that soon I guess
    see ya

    hi everyone

    well yes i have been very very slack - sorry everyone, good to hear you are all doing well and a big happy birthday to jess. michelle i am guessing lani's weight will be much the same when i get her weighed next week lol - we certainly have a couple of lighweights on our hands.

    okay sorry for no personals, you guys must think i am a snob but i am not honestly and just a little to preoccupied with the ttc threads atm, but i should try and change that cause it is not getting me anywhere lol.

    anyway things are going well here, lani has had the snots this week but looks like it is gone, very nice to go in to her in the morning and find snot stuck all over her face and her hair stuck on it lol - can't be very nice for her. her hair is so long now that if the fringe is out it goes down to her mouth lol, i still won't get it cut - i am lucky she doesn't mind me putting her hair up at all (have been doing it from very early on) and she loves head bands and she keeps them on which is a bonus. only thing is i have tried a few times to braid her hair but she keeps moving her head (that kid is never still lol)

    went out for lunch today which meant little miss didn't have her nap so she was in bed at 7 tonight very tired poor love, but she was good, she misses a nap and takes a few days to catch up.

    well she will be 2 next friday (omg i can't believe how quickly that has gone) it truly seems to get quicker with each child, she runs around saying lani 2 lani 2 - so that is cute. we are having a "family" party for her on saturday - we always do a family type party just finger food etc, however family is now stretching to nearly 50 people, but i guess i have set a precident as ds always has a family party every year and then every 2nd year he has a family party plus a friends party - oh well i don't mind and it doesn't have to be too expensive dh does a heap of snags on the bbq and i get people to bring stuff and i buy from a wholesale place frozen type finger food so thats okay plus i love the kids having the parties and seeing their cousins.

    anyway i will stop chatting now and get a move on, just realised my big fat greek wedding is on and i love that movie so i might go and watch it again

    have a great weekend

    Hi everyone, very quiet in here, I guess everyone had a busy weekend?

    Mooshie, wow at Lani being 2...hope the party goes really well, what a huge family you have! That's a good tip re: putting up their hair from early on, I shall have to try that out with Freya.

    Now Mitch, how's that lump going? I hope you decided to have it checked out, just in case. With the abs thing - it's called rectis diastasis...I've been trying to look on the net for you for some exercise instructions because I am bad at explaining. Basically what I do is get down on all fours and (as my physio described it) pull my belly button in towards my spine. You hold it for 5 then let go, and repeat 10 times. Trick is to keep breathing while you're doing it. If you see your dr, they'll probably be able to give you some more info.

    All good here...Freya slept through last night for the 2nd time ever, so I am feeling like a new woman today! Kaleb has been great, he has learned to say 'Freya' now which is very cute!
