    Hiya Amanda... sounds interesting, more and more people seem to be happy with internet phones these days... I remember trying it out circa 1999 and it's wasn't that flash with a delay.. but might have to give it another go... IK: I've tried to send you an email but because I'm on the tempremental desktop I don't think it got through... I've have another go on the laptop later...

    Yup, the penny just dropped tonight! My strength lies in life's subtelties, not the bleeding obvious - I read between the lines, think outside the square, see the trick question everywhere...I DO NOT claim to see the what is right in front of my eyes

    Hello everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Belated Happy Mums day
    We are now settled into life at mum's, one drawback is that my brother now lives back at home and is on shift work so trying to keep the kids quiet when he is trying to sleep is a major headache.
    Paddy is now standing up against furniture but hasn't quite got the handle of cruising yet(thank god!) He has this habit of sitting on his feet bouncing, which is very funny!!!!!! He turns 1 next Thursday so mummy is getting emotional.lol
    Bella is being her normal loud self, but starting to get bored at home, so we are looking for a playgroup.
    Lizzie is at her new kinder and loving it, she goes two days a week, Monday and Thursday 9am-2pm.
    Jack is an Alterserver every second week and for all school masses here and then he is on the roster in Euroa every 2nd Sunday to be Alter Server.
    Tim and Kate have started after school activities. This term it is Gymnastics on Tuesdays and BMX riding on Thursdays, so it is a very busy household here.
    I am doing AVON so if there is anything you ladies want, just let me know! It's only for family and friends, so I'm doing it to meet some people.better go ladies only just gotten in from taking the kids to Euroa.. LOVE YOU ALL
    PS.... I forgot to add IK, I still do PASH orders as well!

    Hiya Jess! Yes, IK and I were wondering recently how you are going with your alpacas? Are they still a part of your new life? You sound much happier than last time you dropped in

    IK: Job? Fire? (I'm only a little bit good at reading between the lines etc hehe)

    Can't stay... house chaotic!

    Ok I'm going to be selfish and do a post venting about DH.

    Well as a truck driver he is up and out of the house by about 4-4:30am most days and doesn't get home til between 5-6pm, so it's long hrs, I'm use to this sort of. But today he said that he was going to get the spotlights on the 4wd wired up by a friend, and that tomorrow he maybe going out with this same friend to make some tracks at a 4wd park for an upcoming comp. So we had a fight this morning about how the kids and I hardly see him and it would be nice to have family time. He told me that he sometimes feels smothered by me, ie I always want to have him home, I don't think that that is to unreasonable. So it esculated from there and I was in tears and he left with the two older boys to get the lights done so who knows how long he will be gone, it's already been an hour. I've been left at home with Wyatt and Cody and the housework, I'm stuck at home everyday doing housework and looking after the kids, it would be nice to have some family time out of these four walls. He said that I could come with him before the fight esculated but what would I be doing sitting there while he chats and me left to look after the 4 boys and make sure they don't touch anything that they're not suppose to, how fun for me. I'm not a babysitter, I'm a wife and would like to spend some quaility time with my husband. So now I'm upset and he's gone and I just have no more energy to keep fighting a losing battle.

    Ok vent over. Better get back to the housework.

    hugs xoxo

    IK - Burrinja is such a beautiful venue, we used to send clients there when I worked up in the hills. Rachel Berger is hilarious, sounds like a good night out! My god, you were out early! Tell us more about it, bet you had a good adrenalin rush LOL!!!

    Rory - glad to hear the flight went well, how annoying about the delay! Chicken noodle soup would have been perfect for a horrible night like last night. Even better the next day!

    Bath - LOL about "mothers helper", I love that term! Might have to use it myself. How cool about getting cheap cleanskins, once you find a good place, stick to it. I got the fairy lights at the Eumundi market when we went to Noosa. They have the fairy light inside the pinky red coloured flower. They had heaps of different types of flowers and were only $30. I try to find good bargains most of the time. Chelsea's room has an old bedside table from DH's nana (very shabby chic) and a desk which we made from laminated board from Bunnings and little cubes under it from Howards Storage World ($11 each), so it was heaps cheaper doing it this way than buying a proper desk and shelving etc.

    Jess - great to hear from you. Your days sound pretty full on. Nice that the kids have got good activites to do. You are a good mum to drive them around everywhere! Can't believe Pat will be 1 next week.

    Amanda - phone sounds great. Julie and IK gave some good advice on the Skype system, is that what you have? My GF (she lives in Qld) and I often chat for 3 hours, once a week. Its usually on $3 if we call after 7pm. Sorry to hear you are having a crappy day. I can totally understand why you are upset. Hopefully DH can understand where you are coming from. Its fine to take 2 of the boys but you are still left with 2 of them and the housework as you said. Maybe once he gets home, try to talk about it again. I hope you get your family time, I'm sure the boys would love to spend time with you and DH together. My situation is a bit different as DH works shifts but it still annoys me. Chelsea is going to a boys 5th bday party tomorrow (kinder friend) and I was really stuckf for buying a pressie! As a mum of boys I need your opinion - I got him a pair of Shrek the Third pj's, is this a good pressie? It was so hard to think of something, I looked a toys and was totally confused!!!!! Hopefully its OK.

    Well Indian was delicious last night but the restaurant was packed and very noisy! We had a banquet and I just had one glass of wine. It was an early night and I was home just before 10pm, everyone was pooped! At least it wasn't pouring when I drove home. Got both my brothers and their partners and kids coming for dinner tonight. Prob just get Thai take away. My brothers GF is going on her first overseas holiday on Monday so its a bit of a farewell dinner. Chelsea is very excited that her cousin is coming to play. Off to put Marley to bed, make a cuppa and quickly read the paper before they arrive.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    i hear yah Amanda. your dh sounds like he does do long hours and work hard but slotting some nice family time in is just as important.
    dh & i argued thismorning all because i woke him up to get Nixon out of bed. He continued arguing all morning about the fact that he is sick and i was already awake. (mind u he came home with a sniffle this last night i've had the cold for well over a week now)This is just an excuse of this week, ive been sick all week too but still get up to Nixon every morning, i would have thought by now (13months into being a father) he would have grown up a little. Realised that sleep in's are few and far between, he has a family now, man i cant wait till Nixon gets out of his own bed and wakes him up, god forbid if i ever do....why do men carry on so much when they are sick? he totally told me he was mroe sick then i was and i never complained so i musnt have been that sick!!!
    so the long and the short of it, Amanda i feel your anger atm

    Jess- hey how are you! so whats the plan for Pat's 1st birthday!

    Mel Shrek pj's would be great, anything to do with the latest movies or cars/trucks are good for boys, they're pretty easy to buy for. Both my friend and I have engin, and the deal is that engin to engin are free and I can ring local and national for free and mobiles are 22c/min, so if I don't call a mobile it only costs $14.95/mth.

    Nic men are shocking when they're sick aren't they, just remember that your baking little powpow and you need your rest too. You would think that they get better the longer they're dads but it's not always the case.

    Jess good to see you back and that everything is traveling smoother now.

    Well I'm hoping that we have come to some agreement for now, so we'll have to see how it goes.

    hugs xoxo

    I am pinging and really need some sleep.
    Amanda - I totally understand your frustration at not being able to convey your position to DH. It sounds like he doesn't want to understand - hence the 'running away'. *hugs*
    Nic - argh, how annoying! Of course you mustn't have been sick enough...grrr!!!!
    The job started before midnight. No adrenaline, I don't think - was like riding a bike! Really tired, haven't slept much and was a big day

    Ha! 1500 posts!!
    Ok, 2nd assignment is done and nearly ready to fax off to the assignment people...next one due in two days but I haven't really started it and I have a medical certificate to cover me till Friday...eek!
    Amanda - how has your agreement gone? I hope the situation has improved. 'Smothered' indeed. What a noive (gotta pronounce that out loud to know what I'm saying there!). Yep, if only WE could run away when WE feel snowed under by it all - how would the world be???
    Jess - I did a bit of a hit and run in my last posts, good to see you are going ok with the brood Good luck with the AVON. Pash was my first foray into 'those sorts of things', so it might be a while before I need to place another order! Are you still doing the Alpacas, or is that where DH is now without you? I'm a bit confused, last time you were in you said things had sort of exploded.
    This weather is awesome - it's rugging up weather!
    So, the job the other night was a house fire, but by the time the first truck got there is was a roof on stumps. It was hot and luckily, the call came through after the gas bullet had exploded (you don't want to be around for the kaboom, and if it's gone 'kaboom' then the house was pretty much a loss well before then!). Things were still going 'pop' for a long time after we got there, but nothing dangerous. For about 3 hours we were operating under the assumption that there were people inside, so it was with great relief that we watched the owners come home. Hot and heavy work, but it was a great team effort and it was great to be on the fireground again after so long out of it. DP was cursing, but he had been drinking and we have made the deal that I go to night time jobs, so there *raspberries*!!
    Our niece turned one on Saturday and her and Oscar played so well together - they are too cute together. My SIL's sister is pregnant and I am beside myself with excitement about that news.
    Well, I have an assignment to fax, another to start and a week of cramming study into a full schedule to look forward to, so I'd best be off again.
    Sorry to miss personals for many of you (I can feel my head starting to wind up again), but hi to everyone and I will be lurking (so forgive me if you see my light on and I don't come back for a while...hee hee, that pesky light...it all makes sense now LOL)

    Hi all, especially Jess - hope all is well with you

    Gotta be quick cause I have lots to do - Flynn has been unwell (first a cold, then a cough and teething and now an ear infection, so he is a bit rough ATM (though still a smiley baby which is nice to see!) DH has been marvellous with him - cleaning up spew in the middle of the night so I can sleep and taking him to the docs today and sorting out antibiotics and stuff.

    But the good news is I am less stuffed than I was - I think the first trimester tiredness might be behind me So hence I have lots to do - the place has been neglected for about 10 weeks now, what with me being tired and DH doing his masters.

    Better go chickies, will report in once I have my scan (on Wednesday - yay!!)

    Amanda - hope the rest of the weekend was good for you. Thanks for the vote of confidence re the Shrek pj's. He was pretty happy with them, so I was relieved!

    IK - boy your assignments come thick and fast! Most of my postgrads only get 2 per semester, pity you aren't in one of my courses! Good luck with the remaining ones. The fire sounded pretty full on, so glad to hear the owners weren't in there. Did they determine what caused the fire? It must have felt good to get back into it.

    Rory - ear infections must be everywhere at the moment. Sorry to hear Flynn has one, hope the antibiotics work fast and relieve the pain. They did a great job clearing Marley's up. Your DH needs to be bottled so we can share him around LOL!!! Great news that the tiredness is passing and good luck with your scan Wed, can't wait to hear all about it.

    Marley has finally cut 2 more teeth! One top one and one beside the middle two. The other top one is not far off - about time LOL!!! Her ear infection seems well behind her but she is still a bit snotty. Went to a GF's last night and watched the Grahame Kennedy movie on Foxtel. Did anyone else watch it? I was a bit disappointed, it was still a good movie but they spent alot of time on his early days and virtually nothing to his later life. Steven Currie was absolutely amazing, he looked and sounded so much like him.

    Hi to everyone else and hope your all doing well.

    Jess – Glad you are feeling more settled. So Pat is the second Junie t reach one, have you got anything planned? I can’t believe they are all nearly 1. When I look at Will standing up I think where’s my little baby gone, he’s starting to look more toddler like each day!

    IK – OMG! So not only are you a mummy and doing serious amounts of study but you’re also a fighfighter (yes I am slow!) as well! Bl00dy hell!! Can you tell me which shop you get you’re energy from as I need to go there! Congrats on reaching 1500.

    Amanda – I completely understand your vent. It’s a shame he doesn’t want to do family time at the weekend when he works so long hours in the week. He really owes it to you to give you some respite from being sole carer for the kids in the week. Saturday must have been the day for it as me and DH had abit of a barney and that was all to do with me no getting a break ie. Him offering to take them out for an hour. I shouldn’t complain though as when he is here he does just as much for the boys as I do but he goes away a lot and get to do social things like eat at restaurants and go to pubs when he’s away so I can’ t help but be envious and want abit of me-time. Hope your ‘agreement’ is working out.

    Bath – Also lol at ‘mothers helper’. Mmm am indulging in some port while surfing BB!

    Mel – Glad you had a great Indian – hope you had a nice Thai on Saturday!

    Nic – Hope you are feeling better. Gggrrr at your dh for ‘being sicker’ than you – that’s just because he is a man!

    Rory – Hope Flynn is feeling better – good sign that he is still Mr Smiley even through an ear infection. Glad you’re not feeling so tired and good luck with your scan on Wednesday.

    Had an OK weekend. Swimming was nice but it’s so bad timing that Will’s lesson doesn’t start until 9am as he normally has a sleep around then so he was losing the plot by the end of it. Sunday was good as we went to Whiteman Park which had a Thomas the Tank Engine day with all the steam trains dressed up as the trains so Oscar was in heaven and we had 2 trips on them. They also had some really old buses there and they were open so you could get on them. We made the mistake of letting Oscar sit in the drivers seat – BIG clunk and this metal cylinder thing had appeared on the floor and we couldn’t work out where he’d moved it from so we beat a hasty retreat which of course caused a massive tantrum. Wasn’t really a problem as there were so many kids his age there that the was ‘tantrum-a-minute’ happening all around so he fair blended in!

    Will is back to normal though still a bit snotty but must feel fine which is great. James is away now until late Thursday so am abit grumpy but the port is helping (only one small glass or I’d never wake up in the morning!).

    Hope everyone’s good.

    Julie x

    PS - Ali - have sent you and email to your hotmail - let me know if you don't receive it - cheers

    Hi Guys,
    Life is much better here, Tori is soooooooo much better, which is a relief, she is sleeping again and he appetite has returned with gusto.

    Nic & amanda: Sorry to her your DH's are being a PITA, I have to thank my lucky sttars everyday that my DH is so good at home helping with the jobs, and Tori and everything. I think every man should be sent on a crash course on what it is like to be a mother, I think some of them just dont understand.

    IK- Good luck with your assignments, I have to say even though I dont have time for them ATM I really enjoyed doing assigments at uni, and I am looking forward tog oing back and doing some post grad studies in the near future (just have to decide on a specialisation)

    Mel- i love indian too, the last time we went out for indian we found the resturant to be crowded and noisey, but the food definatley made up for it.

    I cant believe that Pat and Charlie & Jack will be 1 tomorrow...........omg time is just flying. We will be in June soon and a whole barrage of birthdays.

    Julie- I checked my hotmail account and it had been deactivated, try alisonlatter(at)westnet.com.au

    I hope everyone is well, and looking after themselves, I will talk to you all again soon!

    good luck with your scan tomorrow Rory!
    I have my next scan on monday! i had my first OB appoint in syd today and he did a scan, couldnt tell what sex bub was but thought possibly a BOY. anyway we hope to find out on monday for sure!

    Yay Marley for getting some teeth!
    took nixon to get his ear checked out too yesterday and doc said its not red like it was but still fair bit of fluid on it. providing he doesnt get another cold it should clear up. he is snotty now too. im still snotty, dh is the same and MIL has Broncitis.... so chances of him not getting another cold are slim but hoping not.


    port hey Julie! cant drink the stuff myself. i think it brings back too many teenage memories of coming home blind and getting stuck into port, never went down too well!

    Charlee & jack's first birthday tomorrow! Happy Birthday
