    Hi everyone. I won’t stay for long – for some reason I’m feeling a bit crook. Hope it’s just a once off. I haven’t been able to pop in because of more computer dramas, but DH has the day off tomorrow and he assures me that he’ll be able to fix it then. Here’s hoping because I can’t keep up with you gals otherwise!

    Snowgirl – Hi there! I’m glad there’s another one coping with having two close together. Makes me not feel like such a fool! I don’t know why everyone at the shops has to comment on it… I feel like punching them out! I’m getting a double pram tomorrow so I’m glad you mentioned the Phil and Ted’s one – I’ll have to keep an eye out for it. Congratulations on the new addition too – I’m glad to hear that things are going well.

    Tegan – I’m sure everything is ok with Lily, but I know it’s scary when you’re worried about stuff. Charlie only says four words (mum/bub/dad/nan) at the moment. I bet they’ll have word explosions like Wolf anyday now and we’ll wish they never started talking! The pg makes it all a bit more stressful but maybe once you’re a few more months along the hormones will settle down a bit and it will seem easier. Fingers crossed for you. Congratulations to Lily on learning to catch a ball… funny that you mention it because Charlie did too yesterday! I bet they’d get on really well.

    Dach – I laughed so hard at Yasin’s crush! That is just too cute. Funny how they get fixated on things like that. You’ll have to be careful when he starts school! Sorry about your poor cat too – sometimes people don’t realise how special family pets can be.



    Jo – funny about Kaleb wanting your attention when you’re resting – Charlie does that too. Little buggers! Hope you had a nice time at the park. How’s the pg going? Are you feeling ok?

    Went for a GP check up today – I wasn’t originally going to have one but with the problems I had last week it was recommended that I go every week from now on. It turns out that I have sciatica – no wonder I’m so bloody sore. I figured as much. I have terrible lower back pain and pains in my right buttock which sends shooting pains all down my right leg. I’ve forgotten what sleep is as I can’t sleep for more than an hour without cramping up. It’s driving me crazy! Scary to think that I may sleep better when bubs comes than I am now! The GP also commented, “Wow, he’s really low, isn’t he?”… and she’s the second GP to do so! Scary stuff… I hope that doesn’t mean that he comes too early. Anytime from the 15th (two weeks early) is fine with me but not before.

    Another milestone too – we’ll finally have a cot for No. 2 because Charlie is now officially a big boy and has slept for two nights in his big bed. I was a bit teary the first night (because my little boy is growing up!) but I’m really proud of him. It’s good that we won’t have to buy another cot too. We’re going to see if he wants to sleep in there in the daytimes from tomorrow – I hope he doesn’t get out of bed and play with his toys instead. He wanted to go in there this afternoon instead of his cot but I wouldn’t let him, so hopefully if I lay down the law and tell him that if he gets out of bed then he goes in his cot again he’ll listen and stay in there.

    Anyway, I’m off to watch House (and dream about Hugh Laurie!) and then have an early night. Hope you’re all well.

    BUsy in here girls, that's nice

    Dasch- I think you have done the right thing with the cat too, you can't have that. so Yasin isa ladies man, does he have that gorgeous look that makes all the ladies coo too LOL?

    Kellee- you poor thing with your backa nd no sleep, I was like that with Josh and it was awful. You know I also got the comments from people when I was pg with Jess, about how I would have my hands full once the baby came and that was when I went to the shops with Jemma and my pg belly. I would say that I actually had 2 kids a t school and then they didn't know what to say. Why do people have to say stupid things though? Pg women can be nervous and worried about things without having others try to make it worse. You will cope, and sometimes you won't, you have super days and sometimes you have awful days but that is the same no matter how many you have and how close together they are. DON"T LISTEN!!! (steps down off the soapbox)!!!!LOL
    Have fun pram shopping. And so glad the bed has worked. Jess can climb out of her cot and I just don't let her out of her room and eventually she sleeps, if he does get out he can get back in so I think he will be fine.

    Jo- Kaleb is a bugger wanting you to move all the time, Jess never sits still either and is awful when I sit at the sewing machine.

    ALl sewed out, ran out of thread in the middle of a design and had to drive 45 mins ea way to get another cos they don't sell it in Kilmore, so gonna stick to the ones they do from now on. Petrol is way too dear for that to happen too much.

    Jess is all clear of her gastro, and ate all of her dinner tonight too wich was a surprise.
    have a lovely day everyone

    Kellee, you poor thing, sciatica! I had it on & off last pg and it was horrible, but not nearly as bad as yours sounds. You must be exhausted with so little sleep & chasing after Charlie. But well done Charlie on sleeping in the big bed, that is fantastic, what a big boy! I had hopes that Kaleb might do that, save us buying a 2nd cot, but no way, he can't even associate the bed with sleeping at the moment, he has no self-discipline! I have hit the wall of tiredness...not sleepy tiredness, but just physical. After lugging Kaleb around for the whole dinner/bath/bed thing, I am so stuffed I can't get off the couch (DH doesn't get home from work till after Kaleb's bedtime) and when we go for a walk, even the most gentle of hills has me slowed down to 0.0001kph! Don't know how I'll get through these next 6 or so weeks...you'll be my inspiration! Hey, how did the pram shopping go? I've got a Valco Runabout, so we've just bought the toddler seat attachment for the front, but the Phil & Ted's are very cool - DH is always complaining that we should have got one of those instead, I think he just likes the whitewall tyres!

    Grrr at stupid people and their stupid "oh, you'll have your hands full" comments...no $hit, I feel like saying! A classic I had on Monday...in the checkout queue in Coles, the woman standing next to me just said "so you're having another boy" and I said "no, it's a girl actually" and she said "no, it's definitely a boy, I can tell" ... what do you say to that? Didn't know whether to be peeved that she thought she knew better than an ultrasound, or to be scared that I'll have a pile of pink stuff to take back to KMart!

    Mitch, glad that Jess is totally over the gastro. Thanks for your positive input on the whole 'close together' thing, it is always reassuring to hear from you on that. What kind of things do you sew? I would love to be a sewer, but I am useless at it!

    OK, that's enough babbling from me, better go now!

    Hello again. Well I’m trying to occupy myself while trying to get Charlie to sleep in his bed during the day… he loves it at night but through the day he keeps getting up to play with his toys. After a few times of going in there and telling him he has to stay in the bed or he’d go in the cot DH had to put him in the cot otherwise he won’t sleep. Don’t think he was too happy about that! Oh well, he has to learn. I can still hear him jumping up and down in is cot, little bugger! I hope he learns properly by the time No. 2 comes or there could be some troubles afoot! We’ll see.

    Jo – gosh, I had to shake my head at the woman at Coles. Was she an older lady? Sometimes they think they know everything. I hope I don’t get like that when I’m older! Sorry you’re feeling tired too. That does suck. Just rest when you can and you’ll be fine. Wow, I just looked at your ticker – the time is really flying by, isn’t it?! Actually you’ve just made me scared – if you’re only 8 weeks away then that means I’m less than five weeks away and that’s not cool. Oh dear.

    Mitch- glad Jess is feeling better. It’s terrible when they’re sick – poor thing. And it must be starting to get pretty cold down there too, which makes it worse. Oh, and don’t get off that soapbox – we all need the support and inspiration! Bugger that thread thing. Living in a country town has many advantages but that is NOT one of them!

    Well I went pram hunting today without much success. The sales lady in the first place was really rude and unhelpful and they didn’t have a very big range in the second place I went to. So I think a trip out to the other side of town next week is in order – they have a big pram warehouse out there. I’ll have a browse online at the various different companies in the meantime to see what’s available so I’ve got a better idea of what I need. I did get some new sheets for us and Charlie, new pillows for us and another sheepskin for the pram for the new bub. They’re great and easily washable and so comfortable for bubs – Charlie loves his.

    Anyway, might go and have a bit of a lie down – not sure how long Charlie will let me do that though! I can still hear him! He’s so cheeky. Hope you’re all having a lovely day.

    can't stay long will come back and do proper catch up tonight hopefully, just wanted to let you know kellee of something i did with my kids when getting them to sleep in a bed during the day.

    i had a cd/tape player in their room with batteries (no cord incase they wrapped it around their neck) anyway i got some of those book/tape things you know where you have the book and they read the story, i used to put that on during nap times and say lay down with your book and the lady on your cd player will read you a story, 99% of the time they would be asleep on their bed before the tape ended \/ . with my first dd i didn't have a tape deck or anything so what i did was turned the monitor around, put hers in front of our sterio and the parents one in her room then played the tape on our main stereo and it came through the monitor.

    the tape really worked for us, and i used to say if they got out of bed before it finished then i would have to take it out of their room, my ds is nearly 6 and he still goes to bed with his own, although now he listens to the radio and i just turn it off before i go to bed at night, he loves laying in bed on a cold night listening to the footy lol.

    might be worth a shot - you never know charlie might love it.

    good luck, he certainly sounds like a cheeky monkey - how cute.

    hi to all, back later to catch up

    HI girls

    Michelle- that sounds like a good idea, hopefully it works for Kellee.

    Jo- that woman in the supermarket needs a good foot in the arse, KNOW ALLS!!!! Gosh I am sick of them. and I am not the one being told LOL I hope you feel less tired, maybeit's just your body saying time to sit!!

    Kellee- hope you have some luck keeping Charlie in bed in the day. SOunds like an anniying days shopping, shame really cos you were oin the mood. I am sick of bad sales assistants. When I was at Spotlight the other day I was really ****ed off, they serve you and chat away to the other girls serving as if you aren't there, chatting about what they watch on tv etc. I worked in a supermarket and was always friendly and sociable to the people I was serving and I think it is rude to serve someone and chat as you do it to your friend.

    Did groc first thing this morning withJess, while Jem was at Kinder was all finished by 10.10am so that was good. My house needs atention, I have started but want to get into Jess room and she is sleeping so can't. Will be out tonight for my brothers bday.
    have a good one everybody

    Hey gals,

    Not a bad idea, Mooshie, thanks for the tip. I don't know how Charlie would go with that one. We have started reading him a story before bed since he's been in the bed and we did the same today before he had his afternoon sleep. I think he may have FINALLY gone to sleep now! Only took him about 40 minutes in bed and about an hour in the cot to calm down! He wasn't upset, just lots of energy. Very unlike him - he's usually asleep within 15 minutes and sleeps for anything up to 2.5 hours. Hope he's not in the middle of changing a sleeping pattern right now or it could make it even more complicated!

    Anyway, I think I might go and lie down while I have a chance. Just spent the last hour trying to find good three wheel non-side-by-side jogging prams. It's harder than it sounds! AAGGHH!! If I never see another pram again it will be too soon.

    Hi girls,

    I dont have much news but just thought I should add a post as it has been a while since anyone posted!

    Aidan is enjoying swimming lessons which he started last week. I get them at half price through work (they are sooo expensive, I dont think we could afford it otherwise). I think Aidan should have one other 'hobby' but I cant decide on which one. We have tried Gymbaroo and Mini-Maestro's which were both good but I am also interested in trying something new that may win us over. Any suggestions?

    DH and I were ready to TTC#2 and right at the last minute DH has second thoughts so our romantic night last night turned into a D & M about DH being 99.9% sure but not 100%. It was a good chat but I dont want to 'win him over' I want him to be sure on his own but I got the impression today he is 100% ready. Let's wait and see....

    Aidan is really well, although he seems to get a croaky voice from the swimming pool. He hasn't yet mastered the art of blowing bubbles but leaves his mouth wide open instead when he is under the water!

    Kellee, I hope you had a restful lie down and have the energy back up to maximum level to run around after Charlie again!

    Hope everyone is well.

    hi everyone

    thought i would also post to get the thread a moving again lol

    here is my lame attempt at personals

    kelly - how are you?? how is charlie now in the big boys bed

    jessica - hooray for ttc #2 i hope for your sanity it doesn't take as long as us (so far 10 cycles down) sigh the clock is ticking loudly over here lol. i haven't put lani into swimming lessons, there is no way i am going into the pool with my jelly belly lol, i will wait till she is 3 and can go in the pool by herself, she is very good at blowing bubbles, does them in the bath everynight copying her big brother i only do gymnastics atm with lani, personally i wouldn't bother getting into a whole lot of stuff with aiyden, playgroup is great for him to socialise, check out the playgrouping vic website. believe me as they get older the more activities they want to do and you will be forever forking money out left right and centre for term fees, uniforms equipment etc etc. my ds is nearly 6 and he does swimming and will continue for as long as he wants, but i don't want him to stop until he can at least swim the proper strokes confidently. he is also into his 2nd year of auskick and just loves it, he will also be doing milo cricket in the summer and being such the sporty kid he is wants to do running (little athletics), basketball, hockey, golf and goodness knows what else he thinks of - where am i going to find the time and money lol

    well girls i think lani is officially a tom boy - boohoo, no matter how much i do her all pretty she does prefer to play with her brothers toy cars rather than her dolls (although she does take dolly's pram around the house but squeals in delight at crashing it into the wall) and at auskick on saturday she took great delight in splashing around in her gumboots in the muddy puddles and yup you guessed it she fell right in the mud pmsl, you know the sort the football oval mud that is filthy and stinks ewwwwwwwwww, i made as good attempt as i could get at cleaning her up and she was jumping in it again, i have never heard her laugh so much it was cute. and today at school pickup here she is dancing in the rain, standing under the gutter catching the drips into her mouth and jumping in all the puddles, she was actually seeking out the puddles whilst holding my hand, she was pulling me towards them - oh she is cute and adorable tho.

    anyway enough about my little family a big hello to all of you - and i promise (yeah right) to try and do a little catch up each day.

    right i am off to bd - we are getting close to that time again lol

    Yasin had his first owie with blood yesterday. He fell over and split his lip and there was blood everywhere. I was on the phone to my sister and I swore and hung up on her - its funny how all your manners go out the window when you think your bub is hurt. I felt a bit silly later because it wasn't really serious but I've never seen Yasin bleed before so it freaked me out. When the drama died down I took a photo of his blood stained shirt for his memory box - I'm so lame .
    We got a new kitty for Yasin and Imran. He is a Tonkinese and he is the exact same colour as my carpet (beige). We called him Mr Bigglesworth or Biggles for short.

    Jessica, I agree with Michelle, I think playgroup would be great. I'm dying to take Yasin but with my no car (DH bought me one but we're still waiting for it to arrive), no licence, living miles from public transport situation its a bit difficult to get there. I can't wait until I get my transport under control. I'm such a homebody at the moment and I'm getting a bit sick of it. Do you know where to find a copy of the Melbourne's Child magazine. I've got heaps of ideas from Sydney's Child in the last couple of years. There are always ads for lots of differant activities as well as the articles.

    Kellee, how is Charlie going in his new bed? We're thinking of buying a bunk at the moment. DH ends up in Yasin's bed quite often so if we get one of those ones with a double at the bottom he would be more comfy and in a few years Yasin could move to the top bunk and Imran could have the bottom one. I always wanted a bunk when I was a kid so I'm getting the boys one. They're lucky I never had an unfullfilled desire for a barbie LOL.

    Michelle, LOL at Lani in the puddles. Yasin likes crashing his stuff too. It drives me nuts because no matter how many times I tell him it wakes the baby he just keeps doing it. Mum used to get the taped books for long car journeys. I forgot all about them until you mentioned them.

    Imran is asleep on my lap but I should put him down and have a shower while I have the chance (yes - I'm still in my PJ's )

    Hi there!

    Tegan: like Mitch said: some start early, some later... Wolf has very little teeth on the other hand... hey and Lily can catch a ball which is awesome! It's so funny how differently they develop. Talked to friends on the weekend and their 2 year old wasn't walking until 18 months but has a dozen or so teeth...
    and re. picking up / teaching words... say a swear word accidentally and I bet she will suddenly repeat it

    Dachlostar: that's so cute about Yasin kissing the pink girl in the book. Wolf definitely likes girls... especially older ones!
    sorry to hear about your cat. siamese can be schizo. my aunt breeds them and she has one that is absolutely nuts and I am actually afraid of him, he will *****slap you in the face!! no claws - but it's such a shock when he does it.

    Michelle (mitch): well... we got the Phil & Ted's and then flew to Switzerland where it broke on the flight, just 3 days old! It was broken again on the return flight 2 days later and now is totally wrecked. I am beyond pi$$ed off, especially as they are hard to get hold of here in the UK (4-6 week wait unless you are lucky and find someone who has them on stock)
    PPH is post partum haemmorage (sp?).
    very true re. men not being able to stop...

    It's so nice to see so many pregnant again or TTC. I am definitely having a break for a while though I do think we will go back for no. 3

    Hi Kellee. Well re. prams... my P&T experience has not been so great and I don't like where / how the baby lies in it. I think it's a great pram from 6 months when the second one can sit upright. And definitely don't fly with it. I have heard many stories now from people whose axel and/or frame broke on the flight. Don't worry about the comments (I know, easier said than done, I got so many as well... it can be annoying). Funny enough they will stop once no. 2 is there.
    Arrrg, sciatica, I had that too. 4 weeks to go... not long now! Just remember that!!! You're on the homestretch.
    Oh and back to the pram topic: another option (if you are in the city especially) is the McLaren twin traveller. It takes newborns and toddlers and it is an umbrella stroller but the seat can be fully reclined for a newborn. The P&T can be bought at Baby Bunting in Oz I've been told for AUD 550. I think the McLaren is cheaper than that. I have heard lots of positive comments about the P&T but after buying it am not so impressed with it .. .maybe my expectations were too high after all the raving I had heard.

    Jo, I had the exact same thing "Oh, it's definitely a boy, you are all out the front"... well Zara is definitely a girl... (I didn't know the gender)... I think people just feel like they need to comment... and sometimes the comments can be rather stupid. Try to take it as a positive and appreciate that people are taking an interest (I know it's hard to stay positive sometimes...)

    Well, I can say that so far having 2 close together has been wonderful. Sure, it's exhausting and your second one will often have to cry while the first born pulls you somewhere or chucks a tanty which is so much harder to ignore than a little newborn's cries... but when I see Wolf bringing her toys or cuddling her and kissing her, I think it's wonderful that he has a little sibling and I can't wait for Zara to be old enough to play with her big brother.

    Well, what can I report from here... Wolf has a cold... arrrrg.. I can't wait for summer. I hate the cold and flu season! But he is quite happy.
    We are having a funny eating stage at the moment which can be frustrating. He used to eat really well but recently it can be so tricky to get him to eat something aside from vegemite toast... *sigh*

    Jessica – glad that you had a chat to DH. It would be scary if you fell pg and then he decided he wasn’t sure. Sounds like Aidan is having fun in the pool! I keep meaning to take Charlie to swimming – maybe when the baby comes it will be a nice thing to do just the two of us.

    Mooshie – sounds like your little family is doing very well. LOL at Lani playing in the mud. Sometimes there’s just no point in cleaning them if they’re just going to get dirty again right away! Good luck with the BD – I suppose the practicing part must be fun anyway! Bet DH is having a ball! I will be thinking of you and hoping that this month is your month.

    Dach – poor Yasin! Blood just makes it all seem worse, doesn’t it? I’m sure your sister understands! Hope he’s ok now. LOL at still being in your pj’s – I remember what that’s like! That’s my one resolution to myself when the baby comes, that I WILL have a shower every morning. Otherwise I feel even more tired all day – there’s something about having a shower that wakes you up. Hope you’re enjoying your little ones.

    Snowgirl – I ended up buying the P and T yesterday and I know what you mean about the newborn position. We couldn’t figure it all out. Seems like you have to buy ANOTHER accessory for it, on top of the extra toddler seat. All up, with the seat and shadecover it cost about $650, so I’m hoping it’s all worth it! We’ll have another fiddle around with it and see how we go. What a pain about the flying and your pram! Have you got something to use in the meantime? Thanks for writing that you’re enjoying having the two so close – gives the rest of us hope! Sometimes I wonder how I’m going to do it all.

    Hi Mitch! Hope you’re getting some ‘me time’ in amongst all that working too.

    Not much to report. Feeling really tired – have been out the last three afternoons so I haven’t been able to have my regular sleep when Charlie does. He’s been at Mum’s the last two arvos, and was home with DH on Sunday. He doesn’t have a bed at Mum’s but he kept getting out of bed during his arvo sleep on Sunday and DH ended up putting him in the cot. Not today though – I don’t care how many times I have to go in there, he is sleeping in that bed! It’s not like there are any toys in there to distract him or anything. So I may be back later if he keeps getting out – I can post on here while I’m getting annoyed! I hope he sleeps though because I really need one too. And I want him to be used to the bed during the day before No. 2 comes. He’s great at night though, so that’s something.

    Anyway, someone is demanding that I read him “Cat In The Hat” so I’d better go! Have a lovely day, everyone.

    Hello lovely ladies, I haven't been on for a while, so I will quickly try and catch up with what's happening!

    Kellee, not long to go now, not suprised you're feeling tired, I'm feeling it and I've got a few weeks on you! How is Charlie & his bed going? Hope he is getting the hang of his day sleeps in there. Glad to hear that you got the pram sorted, another job done!

    Snowy, thank you so much for your positive report on having 2 close together...that is exactly what I needed to hear at the moment, when the rest of the world seems to want to scare me instead of reassure me! Anyway, that is a real bummer about the P&T, I would be pretty angry!! I hear you on the fussy eating...it is so frustrating, when Kaleb used to eat anything & everything, I can see his fussiness developing day by day, especially with vegies and meat.

    Dach, ouch at poor Yasin's injury, I would have been freaking out. Kaleb got his first 'egg' a couple of nights ago...he's got one of those pop-up tents, but instead of sitting in it he likes to crawl around the floor in it, like a hamster ball. He walked right into the side of his wardrobe, and a lump swelled right up. I was a bit panicky, but he was fine, cried for about 10 seconds then he was off again. DH keeps telling me that there'll be plenty more where that came from, so I'll have to toughen up. Anyway, hope Biggles is settling into his new home!

    Mooshie, LOL at your little tomboy, she sounds adorable! And what a sporty little dude you have, sounds like Lani is taking after her big brother!

    Jess, sounds like you are being very sensible about TTC, and letting DH decide for himself. Hope that he has come to a positive conclusion! Glad to hear that Aidan is enjoying swimming lessons.

    Mitch, hope you're well and keeping busy, no doubt!

    Not much else to report here, have just been busy selling my old car and doing paperwork, yukko. So much to do before the baby gets here, and although I'm getting stuff done, there is always so much more still to do!

    Well we had a busy day today. Had a picnic/bbq at the park for lunch. Lily met a new friend, a little girl about 2, also named Lily! They looked so cute together playing with a ball, but then my Lily got a bit shy and run away to daddy, lol.

    Went to a friends place last night and Lily went wild. She was so hypo and kept stamping her feet, was so funny.

    Snowy - glad your 2 littlies are going well. Im so scared at how Lily will react when this one is born. She hugs her dolls and stuff but also hit them and bashes them around, im scared she might think bub is a doll lol.

    Jo - i hate the comment people give like that and think they know better. I mean if it was ebcause your belly is way out there then its [email protected] because i was massive with Liyl and she is definatly a girl and i read that if you a on the shorter side then you tend to stick out more because bub has no room to grow upwards, which makes more sence. I'm feeling huge already. I look over 20 weeks but im only 17 weeks, eek!

    Kellee - im pram hunting too and i just can't find anything i like. I need one that has 2 seats, one behind the other. There are not many around and they're expensive.

    Sorry to those ive missed. I hope you're allwell!

    Jo wow, sounds like youre busy atm! So have you actually sold the car or just put it on the market? And are you getting another one?

    Tegan how cute about Lily finding a little friend! And I love it when they put on a show for friends especially if theyre childless friends. They never quite know what to think! I hope you have some luck finding a pram its such an important purchase because if you get the wrong one youll regret it for ages. What kind of thing do you need it for? I particularly needed a jogging pram but if you dont need a jogger the Babylove Tribute seemed to be pretty good. Its a bit on the heavy side but it folded up well and looked comfortable for the baby. Ill let you know how the P and T goes. I reckon its pretty cool atm, but I just need to see how the newborn fits into it before I give it the thumbs up.

    Nothing much to report here either, Im afraid. All we really did today was grocery shopping. Felt good actually Ive been too tired to a) write a proper menu plan and grocery list, or b) actually do the shopping at all so weve been eating like crap recently. I usually eat pretty well and my body can tell the difference. So I organised myself well today and have everything planned and bought for until the next pay, which feels good. Sad that that was the highlight of my day, isnt it? Good news on the bed front too Charlie has slept well in his bed in the daytime for the past two days. Yesterday I had to get up to him once to put him back, but not at all today. I was really proud of him. Im so glad weve got that sorted. I really thought we wouldnt get it done in time. Theres still so much to do though I have to get our mattresses and lounge steamcleaned, set up the bassinet, properly clear out the babys room (its nearly done), pack my hospital bag I dont think its really sunk in that I dont have much time left. Id better get cracking!

    Anyway, off to watch Lost. Hello to everyone Ive missed, and have a lovely night.

    hi girls - im back again!
    spent a few days in bris doing my car handover etc - ive never sold a car before always just traded them in so it was kind of sad to get rid of my bmw as it was my single girl car but too hard with only two doors so now i have a big holden! we have just come back from a week at broadbeach which was great & eliana had fun seeing so much of her dad though im glad to be back home just the two of us - eliana loved seaworld (they had 1/2 price yearly passes so we will be able to go back a few more times) mum's looking after eliana tomorrow so i get to go scrapbooking & have some time to myself (probably only about the 20th time since she was born that ive gone out by myself)
    i will try & catch up on some personals tomorrow - eliana is still awake & seems to not like her cot tonight (think it's cause she slept on the floor on a mattress while away)
    hope everyone has a great weekend

    Hey Mel! Good to have you back. Sounds like you've been busy! LOL at having a 'family' car now... I bet it makes a big change from the sporty single chick car. Don't worry, our car is a very 'family' car too - I call it the Big Red Car because it's a red stationwagon. Glad you had a nice time away - it's great that you're still on good terms with Eliana's dad. Hope you have a lovely time scrapbooking.

    Bit worried about my boy - he's his normal happy self, but over the last few days I've been noticing some dark circles under his eyes. I get them too, but usually only when I'm really tired. It's hereditary on both sides of his family but it makes me wonder if there's something more sinister going on. Might have to take him to the doctor when I go for my checkup next week... anyone else experienced this?

    Anyway, home day today. I have a gig tonight so I'm just going to hang out here and do a bit of housework and RELAX. Hope you all have a rad Friday.
