no more kids

hi all
hand me that kleenex will you sob sob sob...... my babies have all gone to school today and i am a slight bit lost.. Ashley took off with his buddy and didnt even blink an eye next time he can just rip out my heart and stamp on it pmsl. Thomas went off with his teacher really happily which was great.

Grace my big beautiful girl didnt want me to take her to school today. she is too grown up and wanted to catch the bus. she is growing into the most beautiful young lady and i could not be more proud of her.

day one down.

hi all
day one is done, how many more of these do i have to do????? it has all been worth it so it seems as Anthonys face when he came out of class today was priceless. i havent seen that smile for soooo long. god love him. he said the kids were actually nice and spoke to him and asked him to play and helped each other. it was fantastic to see the happiness in him. he was a slight bit worried that he didnt know the prayer they say at assembly but i assured him that in time he will know it and until then they wont mind if he says his own little prayer lol. anyway i just thought i would let you all know how he got on.
cheers

BIG YR 4 BOY


hi all
Anthony started year 4 today at a new school. now dont get me wrong the public school he was in is a great school just not right for anthony though. Anthony struggles with work sometimes and i found he was just being overlooked at times which is really sad. anyway he started at william cowper today and he was excited and raring to go. i had to hold the flood gates back til i got to the car. it was a bit of an emotional moment... he has Miss Gron as his teacher and she is new too so that is nice. Fingers crossed this is going to help him. oh and as a scrapbooker does i took some photos.

hell and back

hi all

well i have survived a day of hell. my feet are sore and i am so tired i can hardle move. we saw guy sebastian with adam harvey and got signatures. it was soooooooooo busy that people would just step right on the kids to get to the front. people are so rude. anyway this is the photo. i so hope grace appreciates it.

count down til school starts

hi all
today my boys are running around the house all excited. when i openned the mail today there was a letter for each of them stating who their teacher was going to be for this year. Thomas has Mrs merrick, Ashley has Mr Tockuss and Anthony has Miss Gron. I cant beleive i am going to get 3 days a week to myself. omg what am i going to do with myself. i can see the house getting cleaner and maybe even a bit of arts and crafts.

well i am off to have a shower and get ready for the onslaught ahead of me. we are going to get the rest of the school uniforms and then head of to big W where guy sebastian is going to do autographs. i might even get a better photo today.

snap shots of today

hi all
whilst down town today i took over graces camera and took a few snaps. there is so much to see and do down there. i could easily spend a day just sitting there watching people walk by and take photos. country music really brings out some charactors and make things that seem normal stand out more.
isnt it funny, the thing that made the boys the happiest was simply balloons.


the tin man had the boys stumped. they didnt quite get that you had to put money in the tin to get the bloke to move lol.



the lights look very pretty against the trees and hopefully tonight i can get some more pics.



the old town clock looked so bright and beautiful

cheers





OH YEAH DO YOU LIKE IT LIKE THAT.

hi all
what a morning. i took the kids to see Guy Sebastian at the town library. He was fantastic. He read a couple of stories to the kids and he also sang a couple of songs. grace was in charge of the camera and omg is all i can say. lol.

cheers

CMF

hi all
yes this is a post about the COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVITIES that are happening. yes it is that time again and the people are coming out of the wood work everywhere. i went for a stroll down town last night to look at the buskers etc. it was lovely and cool and the kids even got some fake tattoos. i managed to take a few pics too so thought i would share. i love looking at all the different characters that turn up, from Indians to the chicken man. if anyone has never been to the CMF then really book now for your tickets next year. just remember this is where Keith Urban started. I was there the night he won Tamworth Starmaker and i have an autograph to prove it pmsl. i use to have the biggest crush on that man, even with his mullet lol. it is truly one of the best fortnight you can ever have. there are heaps of free concerts on for those on a budget.


a hat for every girl out there

who doesn't want a lovely pink hat like this. just add a tiarra and i am there lol.

hanging lights for sale. just glorious as the streets got darker.


the light was hitting the gates at bicentennial park perfectly last night. i just had to take a photo. i love the look of the stone and metal together.

hi all
grace is home now and is, well how shall i put it but F)(*&)(*&)(. she is so tired the poor girl. i am sure she has grown 2 inches since being away. i missed her so much and by the reception i got when i got there to pick her up i am sure she missed me too. i have never had a hug and tears like that before. i love her so much and felt like a part of me was missing with her away. anyway she is home now and i can once again enjoy having some girlie time.
