    How are you finding Melb compared to Perth? I hear Perth is a beautiful city and I have cousins there but never been.

    Great getting the kids in bed by 6pm. I was reading Chelsea a story and I looked over to ask her something and she was asleep!!!! I must be a great storyteller LOL!!! Marley has been in bed since 7pm and generally wakes around 10-11pm so I have a bit of time
    on BB. I am so loving this!!!! Addicted already!



    I remember having my ears pierced as a kid but I don't have any plans to have my girls ears done. If Chelsea asked me, I would consider it but I would prefer her to be a older. I remember how much it hurt - OUCH!!!

    Melb is very different to Perth, very fast paced over here. But i needed something different. When ive finally finished all my testing for the RAAF im hoping to get posted to RAAF Base Amberly in Townsville for prolly 5 years, then to Pierce in Perth for the rest of my career, i want to live my life out somewhere very south of Perth. So beautiful down there...

    The kids didnt have much choice in bedtime!! They were just so whingy they were driving me crazy!! They share a room, and kept trying to play (and kept getting grumpier and grumpier) so i put declan in the port-a-cot in the lounge, i will just have to watch tv in bed and play on the laptop tonight (not that im disappointed about that, i just wanted to clean the loungue while the kids were asleep!!)

    I've been on BB since the week after i got married (2 years now!!) and i love it on here.

    Which part of Melbourne you in Mel?? Im in Tullamarine.

    What do you want to do in the RAAF? Is south Perth, the beach areas like Fremantle etc?

    It is great here. My friend has just moved to USA with her husband, 1 year old son and she is 12 weeks pregnant! She doesn't know anyone and her husband is always away with his work. I told her to get on! It would be such a great thing for her to feel she has someone to talk to during her lonely times and a place to ask advice. I can't believe I stumbled across this quite accidentally and I am really glad I did. I am really looking forward to meeting IK on Wed and the rest of you on Friday and all our babies meeting.

    I live in Wantirna, so a little way from you. My aunty lives in Gladstone Park, so I know my way around there a little bit.

    Yep, my nearly 12 yo DD isn't keen to get her ears pierced... mainly because not many of her friends have them done. I had mine done at about 8 years and remember the pain of infections more than the piercing. Anyhow, it's one less expense, so I'm glad I'm not getting the pressure from her!

    We watched the Wizard of Oz here too! LOL I thought we'd be the only family watching it as everyone we know seems to have pay TV these days. That's another thing I'm glad we don't spend money on... Mel: despite the fact that my DH is a fairly well paid banker we live VERY simple lives... I often joke in here about us being Amish... y'know the whole cooking from scratch, needlework, fabric nappy thing. We only got a DVD player this year (because my DD needed it to use a French DVD from school)... I'm hoping to buy one of those retro record players for Christmas because our collection is so huge. I guess the only thing in this house that ties us to the 21st century is our computer! Our TV isn't much bigger than our monitor too... no massive plasma one here. I get really miffed when people say they'd like to send their kids to private schools too but can't afford it... when they fork out thousands on pay TV, upgrading their cars, buying home theatre systems etc etc etc. Better get off my soapbox... almost time for bed.

    ETA: oh and I've lived in Perth too... West Leederville, Northbridge and South Perth. Gorgeous city. Have also lived in: Bundaberg, Tamworth, Albany, Kalgoorlie, Lismore, Warragul and several Melbourne suburbs including: Fitzroy, Elwood, Caulfield and Brighton. In that order.

Tori is one over tired baby, although she has just put herself to sleep in her cot, I wrapped her up put her down, read her as story, said good night and came out to do something, went back to check on her and she was asleep... she is such a clever baby.

    Mel- Welcome. Im Ali, 26 yrs old- I am a primary school teacher, teaching mostly year 1 and 2. My daughter was born on 23rd of June. My hubby and i have been married just over a year and Tori was concieved on our honeymoon.

    I have added up our bali pics you can find them on my site.

    Anyway best be off, DH and I are going to hope into bed and watch a DVD on my laptop tonight, we are both exhausted.

    Actually Mel Nixon wasnt the first born of the June baby's.
    Little Ronan (Rac00oo00n bub) was born exactly a month before Nixon at 27weeks.
    He spent a lot longer in hospital (till after his EDD mid June i think) So he is almost 8months old & such a cutie!
    Then our friend Kelly Had B/G twins on 23rd May. Jack & Charlee (wonder how they are) Kel did really well & i think carried them to 37weeks.
    Then Mr Patrick was next a day later at 35weeks!
    Then little miss Anneliese was an August baby who wanted to join in at 30weeks!
    so we had quiet a few early ones in here, amazingly i dont think anyone went more then a few days over their due dates. a couple of smartie pants came on their EDD (hmm was it Flynn/ Alexander?)

    Morning everyone.

    What a funny day weather wise - its not cold outside but it has been raining on and off here all morning.

    Bath - had to laugh about your "amish" lifestyle. We don't lead a lavish lifestyle either, no pay TV (much to DH's disappointment!), paying off one car, mortage the usual. It would be nice to have more money but I suppose the more you have the more you spend. You have lived in alot of places - at least you've been and seen some of Australia. I am a regular visitor to Qld (my best friend lives there) and that is really it. I have always wanted to see more of Oz and Victoria but never seem to get around to it.

    Nic - Marley was one of those freaky kids born on her due date and so was Chelsea. I might post and ask if any other BB members have had 2 babies born on their due date. My body must expel things when they are ready LOL!!! I can't believe how many babies were born early.

    Simone - hope the boys enjoy Queens Park and don't get too wet! Great to hear about your RAAF ambitions and I will be thinking of your Thursday and crossing everything that the testing goes well - stay positive, you'll romp it in!

    Nothing much happening here today, just made playdoh for Chelsea (she wanted pink this time!) and now going to do some choc-chip cookies (YUM).

    Anyone else going to watch ABBA MANIA tonight? DH & I love ABBA and they show looks pretty good. Conflict though - there is a mini-series on Ch 2 tonight which they are raving about so might have to tape!

    HI all

    Gee we're a chatty bunch.. I scaned all the posts only to discover I forgot about the apples I was cooking for Aleise and they burnt! Gee I'm a silly woman!!

    Mel: Yeppers I'll be watching ABBA mania - Im an Abba freak big time. Loved MUMMA MIA! on stage a couple of years ago.

    Nic: Sorry I work Thurs and Fridays but any other day should be fine. Inlaws live in Beerwah (near Caloundra) so it wouldn't be hard to see you up there. I've Pm'd you.

    Simone: Hope you're feeling better. I wish I had your problem of being 50kg! I wasn't that weight since 21! Am working on getting down to 60kg though. Keep falling off the chocolate wagon so I'm not loosing any more!

    Weather: Well Brisbane's weather has been great too but its going to be 33 on Monday. We're also on level 4 water restrictions which means bucket/watering can watering only on your nominated days (ours is Sat, Tue and Thurs since we're an odd number).

    Dee(7th) good to see you back. All that other stuff is now water under the bridge although some people have left the forum.

    Aleise loves her food! She's had pumpkin & sweet corn, fruit salad jelly and mashed banana. She's pretty lucky getting banana 'cause it was $10 a kilo and I only got 3. I bought the cutest swimsuit for her the other day - $10!! its a lovely light blue with butterfly and flower motifs sewn on it. Will have to take a pic and email you once she has her first swim.

    Matt has been selected for an audition for Temptation so he's going to that on Sat 25th NOvember - can't wait especially if he gets in and wins us some stuff! Fingers crossed!! He's at the movies today with my mum - they wanted to see taht Flags of our Forefathers or something like that - since I'm not a war movie freak I opted to stay at home today.

    Well not much else to say - take care and will keep in touch.

    Neeny Aleise is lucky to get 3 banana's, I only bought Nixon one!!

    I ahve just uploaded some of my scrapbooking pages on my website so if you get a chance have a look. The pages were too big to scan so i just had to take a photo of them.

    we can only water on even days now in Melb (as we live at an even number)

    Neeny we went an saw Mama Mia twice! It was one of the best stage shows I have seen (apart from Lion King).

    Good luck with DH Temptation audition. Would be awesome if came home with the same as the recent champ (was it over $850,000 in cash & prizes?) did. If he does get on, you will have to tell us when he is on so we can cheer him on!

    Nic - your photos of Nixon are just gorgeous. I esp like the one of him in the bath on the first page, such a beautiful smile. Your scrapbooking looks great. I have bought so much stuff (album, paper and all the extra bits) but haven't yet started putting it together yet. I have over 300 photos in my camera waiting to be printed. You have just given me the push to hurry up and get them done! Thanks.

    I recently bought bananas at $6 a kilo (still expensive) and Chelsea decided to have 3 in one go while I was hanging out washing!!!! Try explaining the cost of bananas to a 3 year old LOL!!!

    hey guys,

    Well im back from mums, had another break which was good, DF went to Canberra for work so i went to stay with mum!

    Neeny - Thats great about matt, let us know if he gets in so we can all watch him!!

    CeeCee
    - you are not an idiot!!! I couldnt stop laughing to myself after i got off the phone to you. I must have looked pretty sillyl standing there saying "yeh im here, what are you wearing" Nevermind, there will be plenty of other opportunities to meet up!!

    Nickers - Great to see you back!!! Let me know next time you head up toward Engadine and ill try to catch up with you! I cant believe Nixon has two teeth!! He is growing up so quickly.

    Not much happening with me at the moment, im heading to Canberra on the 23rd of November to stay at that place. Hopefully they will help me. Lachlan is still waking up all night and its driving me insane, ive tried everything. I went to the doctor the other day and he has referred me to a paediatric sleep specialist. Sounds interesting, apparently they can do the sleep studies on them to find out why they are waking so often and why they cant sleep. He seems to think he might have sleep apnea (sp?) I just hope we can get it sorted!
    On a lighter note he is rolling all over the place now and im sure that he is teething, he is grinding his gums together all the time and i can see a hint of white on the bottom gums too.

    I have turned the carseat around (i think IK, you mentioned this) he loves it, he looks around and its easier for you to just look in the mirror to see him too. Lachlan was just off 8kg so i thought it wouldnt matter too much!

    Oh, i went to my highschool reunion last week and it was soooooo strange, the nasty girls were still nasty and sat in the corner together like school but everyone else was really nice, very grown up! It was a good night!

    Anyway best go and try to get dinner sorted.
    im off to see Billy Joel on Wednesday night, should be good.

    Take care everyone
