A quilt in a day....

Ok well maybe not a quilt in a day but a quilt top in a day.. Which is as good as the entire thing in my book. I've been so jealous of those amazing mums for so long that just whip up a quilt when the need arises, that I finally caved in and gave it a go myself. And yes the result so far is simply stunning... Although I'll need to tell honey it is not hers.... Lol

My baby is at high school!!!

Where has the time gone... Well I rarely blog these days. disgusting I know however I'm feeling this post is really necessary at the moment. My darling daughter is at high school and if I can tell her what I know now it is (in order of priority):

  1. Smile!!! You are soooooo loved!!!
  2. Be confident
  3. Be kind
  4. Focus on your study
  5. Dont over try to find new friends as the right people will find you!!!

And most importantly Mummy and Daddy love you more than we can explain to you! One day you will know when you have your own baby how much that is!!!

Ok so my baby sister is getting married this Saturday. There has already been a major wardrobe change by for the flower girl. OMG!!! It just brings out the best in everyone doesn't it??? I'd say this video from a few years ago sums it up nicely: Bride Massive Hair Wig Out A good old fashioned family freakin' wedding. My father has already been told to rewrite his speech along with sequins being banned from within a 20 km radius of the wedding site, which incidently is at Montsalvat.

Check it out: Montsalvat

This is the oldest art's residence in Australia and it is stunning, apparently built in the 1890's... I will keep everyone posted. I will begin drinking promptly at 10.00am I'd say just to make sure all conversations go as well as can be expected with my relations and extended family. Basically we are going to chill and kick back for a while and just do what Beth said here: "melbourne zoo by Beth". Why? well because she has great advice.

Melbourne day 1

We are staying at an awesome hotel.  It's called Pegasus and it's in the heart of Melbourne.  Jai had the first plane flight he could remember and then sat next to his big sister all by himself...  Very proud...  But he is nine!  We arrived early and then booked into our suite...  The "super Mario" suite.  Full of games and a fully themed room.  Needless to say we lost the kids straight away and I booked myself into a long shower...  Then  lilybelle decided she was checking out the brand new two lane lap pool.  They have scored big time....

both in bed at 8,30!!!

OMG, today both children are in bed. Could it be the fact that their father has nicked off for a few minutes. Its always so easy to get kids into bed without the father home. Why is this so? Life seems more organised. Last night Lilybelle told me that she "didnt know how Chris and I were together... Chalk, cheese", she said pointing either side of the conversation. Well I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to handle having a teenager in the house although no matter how ferral she gets, she grows more lovelier each day. About a week ago I was copping the pre-ferral teen attitude. This went something like..."I have a selfish cow for a mother that will not let me have any friends!!!" Which incidently is not true. At that very point in the conversation, Jai, being exceptionally pleased at having a new scooter, whizzes past on it clicking his tongue, shaking his head and remarking..." Yep mum I don't know ... kids these days!!!!" Could not have put it better myself!
