Busy Week !

We have been waiting for quite sometime now for Ruby to have a little operation on a bubbly thing in her mouth, they called it a tumor but I don't want to use that word it shoulds scary.

Well last tuesday I got a call from the rooms to say that they had moved her op forward to friday from Feb as we were all a bit concerned that it had grown. I felt a little scared but thought well it will be here before we know it so no time to worry.

Friday morning came around, Nathan and I were wondering how we were ever going to get away with not feeding Rub's breakfast, I mean this child lives for food. Well it worked out alright as both the girls slept until 6:30am and we had to wake them(which never happens in our house).

We dropped Issi off to Nathan's Mum and had Ruby at the hospital at 7:00am. One of my good friends from Church works at St Vincents so we were treated very well and had a room straight away unlike everyone else sitting in the waiting room. Ruby went to thearte at 8:00am, I made Nathan go in with her this time as I had taken her in when she had her finger operation and I felt that quite horrible. As soon as they were gone I did freak a little and think I should of taken her, as soon as Nathan came back I made him give me the gown so I could go into recovery.

About 9:00am I went to go to the toilet and I heard her in recovery, they came out and got me straight away as she was pretty destressed. She cried for about 45mins which was pretty unpleasant. Once we got back to our room she settled down and was asking for food in no time, we know she was back to her old self them.

We took her home about 11:30am and she has recovered very quickly.

Sprinkler Time !!

Over the longweekend we had some beautiful weather in Launceston and we spent a lot of it in the garden, meaning the girls got to spend quite a bit of time under the sprinkler. We never had any where at oxford Street so set up a sprinkler so this was very exciting for them.

We had to go in blocks of 20mins in the sun as neither of the girls can wear sun screen with there skin. Luckily enough they are quite olive and do not burn easily.

Our new House !!

Our new house before we removed the white wool carpet that was even in the carpet and the drapes. Still working on the lighting.

Moving day.

It looks so different without the carpet

Saying goodbye to 11 oxford street. xx

Some photo's from the last couple of months.

The beautiful and very cheeky Ruby, she is such a different to Issi. Was an absolute pleasure as a baby very quite and content, however now she is in to everything and not just the nice things. Nothing to find her in the toilet taking her poo from the toilet or in the garden eating dirt. She should have been a boy I think.

In the september holidays we went with a little group of Issi's school friends to Hobart to watch High School Musical, the girls had a great time and enjoyed the school so much as did there Mum's. This is Issi and Poppy.

My new car !!!

I am still alive !!

Well I know there is only a couple of people that read my blog and don't know that we have been moving house and very busy over the last few months, anyway in saying that we are now sort of settled in and I am attemping to get back into blog land.

Our new house is a 1970's brick which is very different from anything we have bought before and anything we have liked before, however we LOVE it. I will post some photo's when I get around to loading them on to the computer.

I have settled into my new job at 41degrees very nicely now, I have now been here for over 7 months. The time has really flown. I am really looking forward to having a good holiday and break with Nathan and the girls over Christmas which is something that I just could not do in my old job. I have been going to PCSYM the new gym in launie doing Spin three mornings a week for about 6 weeks now and am really enjoying that, also started Bootcamp this morning which will be on two mornings a week.

Issi has had a very good year at Prep, she is really enjoying her swimming, gymnastic and ballet. It is there end of your production of Madeline in a few weeks so that is always very excing. She is really loving having two of the little girls from her class living on our back fence at the new house, they have such fun playing in the yard.

Ruby is growing up much too quickly, she is a very adventurous little girls and you really need to know what she is up to at all times. This is strange as she was such a easy baby, she is very much into her role play and loves Lewis (Issi's baby Born) playing with him for hours.

Nathan is having a great year at school also, it is just about to be report writing week so I may not be saying that next week. He is in a AST role .6 and really enjoying the Challange. They have the school fair tomorrow night which should be good fun.

Well that is about all for my first posting back on the blog, will post some more with photo's over the weekend and attempt to get the few people that used to read my blog back checking. Oh by the way Chels I tried to check out your blog the other day and could not get in, could I please have access I love your blog and seeing what your beautiful little family is up to,

Bye for now

Birthday Morning !!

The famous cake that I forgot once more, to post in the previous photo's. I have never worked with soft icing before but it was actually quite easy once you worked it out.

We had a balloon man as our special guest for Issi's party, so instead of a bag full of sugar to take home the little girls got a balloon animal or something made from a balloon. He was very clever.

These were Nathan's flower creations, I think he did a great job. Very proud of him.

It's PAARRTY Time !!

On the 10th August Issi turned 6, where have the years gone. We are starting to notice her becoming so grown up and independant. It is nice in someways but I still want her to be my little girls sometimes.
I decided to brave this year and had my first party at home for her, we have normally gone somewhere like the bike centre or kids paradise. It went really well except one thing, I forgot to bring the cake out. I had hidden it away from Ruby who kept trying to pull it off the bench on our bed with the door closed tight, when everyone had left I walked into our bedroom and there it was one the bed. It took me awhile to get over it, we took it to school the next day which was her actual birthday.

Issi trying to teach Ruby to do the catalog pose, I would rather she didn't.

Ballet Exam

How grown up !!

Oh my goodness blogging twice in two days. Managed to find the camera cord so have loaded some photo's from Issi's ballet exam. She is really starting to look so grown up, turning 6 in two weeks.

It has been far to long !!

Well were to start. It has been far to long since my last blog post. Some changers have certainly occured in our household and some are yet to occur. My new job, I started working with the girls at 41 Degrees Real Estate back in March. It was the best decision I have ever made, Nathan used to say to me quite often that he thought I would really enjoy Real Estate and I would always say NO Way, could not think of anything worse. Well I was so wrong, I love it. I feel like I have found my passion. It is however a little on the busy side but we seem to be making it work. It is really important to protect some of your time or people think that you are on call to them 24/7.
A change that is yet to occur is our new house, yes I know I am ment to be selling them to other people not buying them myself. We have bought a house in Ashby St, which is actually just two streets away from where we live now. It is not the sort of house I thought I would ever by as it is brick 70's and I am a bit of a weatherboard Character girl. However it is a very sensible family home for us and our busy lives.
The girls are growing up way to fast, Issi had her first ballet exam yesterday and seemed to really enjoy it. She is really tried tonight and took herself to bed at 6:00pm when she got home from playing at a girlfriends house.
Ruby is really blooming in to her own little person, very cheeky but incredibly cute at the same time.
Nathan is busy at work, he is in the acting Ast role that he had last term again so that is certainly filling up his days. He had a week of being the big boss when Shireen and Mario went to Singapore and he love it and from all reports really stepped up to the mark.
Well that is about all for now, I will load some of Issi ballet photo's when I find the cord for the camera. XX

Some Random !!

The girls and I ready for bed one night last week.

I was trying to take a photo of Ruby's beautiful new dress I bought from the very talented "Black Eyed Susie" I am very impressed with it and she looks adorable in it. She even made us a matching clip, she must have known about my OCD. LOL

Ruby was doing some modelling on Sunday of her winter hats from last year to see which ones would still fit. This was her favorite, she wore it for the rest of the day.

Mothers Day

Well as you can see it is taking me awhile to get around to blogging about things these days. Life is busy, but good busy. We have had a pretty shocking week this week but with us all coming down with Gastro, and I seemed to get the worst of it. Even my poor nieces Alex and Georgia who babysat the girls on saturday night ended up with it. Sorry girls.
This Ruby on Mothers Day morning feeding her dolly a bottle or dottle as she would call it.
The girls on the swing at Nannie P, for lunch. Poppy was the cheif swing pusher. Poppy's are good at that.
Nathan enjoying his lunch, and my MIL hiding. She is not a fan of having her photo taken.
