Happy Easter to you all!
Stacey - Oh no. Glad you got out ok. That is my worst fear when we go on the beach with our 4WDs. Love the pic of Lexie and her bunny.
Bubsy - Big hugs to you honey! I hope you get that BFP. I have my fingers crossed for you.
KimV - You are such a good girl to be making your own HC buns.
Kim (MO7) - Loved your email with the photos. I wanna come live at your house...so much fun goes on there. You sure are one cool easter bunny!
Us - We had our BBQ at the farm yesterday. It rained on and off, but we were all inside for most of the time. Bailey and his cousin rode their quad bikes in the mud and had a fab time. Boys! Reaghan was a bit cranky as she is rather unwell. This cold/flu is taking a toll on her. I noticed yesterday arvo that one of her ears was leaking fluid, so we came home and I phoned the GP clinic at our hospital and they told me to bring her in last night. The doc said that she has an ear infection. I wouldn't have thought this was possible given that she has grommets in. Anyway, Reaghan has to have drops in her ears 3 times a day, which of course she loves....NOT! When she woke up this morning her other ear is infected too. I am going to keep up with the drops til we see our own GP on Tuesday. Why do my kids always get sick on or around public holidays and school holidays? Bailey has a touch of a cold but is doing ok. DH has taken him to the drive-in tonight to see the new TMNT movie. He was so excited. I am not sure if he will even be able to stay awake long enought to watch it. LOL!
Ok, better run, the floors won't mop themselves.

Hope you all had a lovely family day eating chocolate
Stacey - great pics! Lexie has the best eyes
Kim - thanks too for the email! Your easter bunny footprints are very cool! Clever chick! Bet the kids loved it!
Kylie - still crossing everything for you! Hope that temp is still up and a BFP on the way matey! ((hugs))
JMC - Oh Jillian...... the poor little darling! I bet you are just at poor Reaghan's ears.... Can't be much fun for her (or you!!). I hope Bailey's cold/flu doesn't progress into anything more. Nathan has got the sniffles & sneezes tonight too... Glad you had a fun time at the farm despite the rain!
Bel, Morts, Merz & everyone else..... huge
Been scrapping in front of the TV tonight and have a very sore back for my efforts - but I was trying to do the right thing & not neglect my husband again!! At least we were in the same room tonight - as opposed to the last week or so when I've been in here scrapping & playing on EB while I've left him to watch TV alone - he started dropping hints today so I compromised by scrapping with him!!
We had a good day - did the rounds to drop off easter eggs (& collect ) at nanny & grandad's & then up to see poppy & grandma at the hospital. (he is doing MUCH MUCH better)... Anyway, then came home and had lunch etc etc. Then mum came for lunch & then decided to take Nathan back to the hospital at about 3.30pm for the arvo. He took more chocolate & toys to play with poppy & I went up & picked him up at 6pm. He had a FANTASTIC time (they all did!). And ever since then, every now & then Nathan will come up & pass a cushion to craig to "hold on your chest & cough cause I'm the Dr & your Poppy ok? Lets pretend Dad"...and then a few minutes later "here's your vegetable soup - eat this & then we'll go for a bit of a walk ok?" So cute!!
Righto, best be off to .
Probably catch up tomorrow sometime.
Posted 09 April 2007 - 12:01 AM
Kazz - Great to hear that your Dad is doing much better. Nathan sounds so cute playing doctor!
Jillian - Oh poor Reaghan and her ears! I hope she gets better quickly.
Stace - Gorgeous photo of Lexie. Looks like she enjoyed her choccy bunny!
Kylie - I've got everything crossed that you get that . Your chart is looking pretty good so hopefully your temp stays up tomorrow.
We've had a pretty quiet weekend - have just been doing lots around the house getting it all nice looking to sell. I think we're having a home open next weekend.
We're seeing my family tomorrow for Easter as everyone was busy today. We gave Laura a fluffy pink duck and a little handbag with a bunny on it. She's been carrying the bag around over her shoulder most of the day. So funny!
Here's a pic of her with her presents. Excuse her messy first-thing-in-the-morning hair!

Us - we've been super busy but today were home and daddy's at footy. Bree's asleep right now but I'm sure she'll happily help mummy in the garden for the rest of the day when she wakes!

Hi all. Tried posting yesterday and some nasty error popped up, and now I can't remember for the life of me what I posted.
Kylie(bubsy)- I can totally relate to what your going through. Is it at all possible you o'd late. I did with this preg by 10days according to my scans, which explains why I didn't get my bfp until somewhere between CD40-45.
Easter was ok here, Daisy loved the easter hunt- and for the first time ever I had a hyper child. She was going nuts last night, from too much choccy I guess. She was rolling around the floor cacking herself at about 8pm last night- it was unreal to watch- should ahve filmed her I guess.
Ok will quickly read the last thread and get miss poppet out of bed before she demands more choccy.
Posted 09 April 2007 - 05:18 PM
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.
It was great to catch up with my mum. I think we both needed it iykwim. Mitch was spoilt rotten, but that is Nanna's privilege
We went out for dinner last night, as it is mum's 60th b'day on Wednesday. Had a lovely dinner. Mum's sister and her family came up from Sydney for dinner, which was really nice to catch up with them too.
The only bad spot of the night - at @ 3.30am I was violently ill (sorry for the TMI) Completely redecorated the toilet floor. According to Scott, who had to clean it up, the only surface I did not get was the ceiling So I have been laying on the lounge most of the day feeling like crap. I have started to pick up a bit in the last hour or so, so hopefully whatever I had has gone.
Kylie - here's hoping a comes your way.
Karen - love the piccie of Laura - she looks so grown up!!
Karen - LOL at Nathan playing doctor!! It is good to hear your dad is doing better.
Bel - Hi there!
Jillian - hope Reaghan's ears clear up soon, poor little poppet. Give her a big cuddle from me.
Stacey - that is a gorgeous photo of Lexie!
Merz - Hi there too!!
Well, that's a lazy 10 for me. Hi to everyone I missed.
Gonna go and lie down again for a while, then clean up the house before the ILs arrive tommorrow while I go to work.
Posted 09 April 2007 - 07:01 PM
kylie- the new kitchen was put in the new area before the old one was taken out.
bbq, elc flying pan and mwave
hope the new kitchen is up and running soon
Jillian - hope Reaghan's are better soon

Happy Easter Everyone!!! Hope you haven't eaten too much chocolate. I am addicted to those darryl lea nougart eggs. Everyone bought me one and now I have 6!!! Yummo. Once they are gone I have to wait till Christmas for the Christmas version. They should have them all year. Amelia had fun playing with her eggs and baskets and toy bunnies and books on Sunday morning. Lucky for me she thinks eggs are just coloured balls for the moment. She loved the humpty dumpty one because of the pictures and it shakes cause it has smarties inside!!!
Any of the Sydney girls go stir crazy with the rain!!! Too much TV for everyone. If I hear the playschool nursary rhymes DVD again I think I will go insane. Thank goodness today was a better day and we actually went outside!!!
Danielle : Poor you! I had the same thing. I am never sick and all of Saturday I was spewing. Revolting. Lucky nobody else in the family caught it. Was over in 48 hours thank goodness, and lucky really it was a holiday so DH was home to help with Miss.
MOrts : I am impressed with all your cleaning efforts. Am sure your sale will go through quickly! Cute photo of Laura and her bedhead!!
Bubsy : Argggh. Aout the kitchen!! But think of the joy when it is finished!
Karen : GREAT to hear that things are looking up for your family and you had a lovely easter. I loved the photos you posted the other day, especially the black and white one with the coloured boys. Beautiful. I think Daniel is a mini Karen!!!
JMC : Ohhh - hope Reaghan gets better soon. No wonder she is awake at night.
Stace : Love the pics! You live in an awesome place to be so close to the outback and have adventures like that!!!
Here are two pics of the fantastic little hairclips that the Beautiful Bubsy bought for Amelia. As I said they hold onto her hair with velco and she doens't even know she has them on!!!
Posted 09 April 2007 - 08:18 PM
Nathan & Craig are watching their all time favourite lifesaver show (bondi rescue ) so I'm on here
Catherine - awww.... Amelia is so cute with her bows & all! Has she got lip gloss on?? What great full lips she has too! Lucky girl! Gorgeous beads too - she really is a doll! Glad to hear you had a great Easter too and scored seriously on the Darryl Lea eggs! You'll be sick of them by the time you get through 6 - or are they really that good??!!
Jeanelle - hey babe... are you feeling a bit better?Hope so. Hope you & your family had a great easter.
Danielle - sooo glad to hear you had a lovely dinner with your mum! I bet she is loving being there to spoil Mitch rotten... Shame about you being ! I hope nobody else gets it! What a good man scott is for cleaning up for you!!!
4forme - I had to when I read that Daisy was hyper! So was daniel - its the first chocolate he's ever really had and he was bouncing off the walls too Needless to say, we've cut back the consumption today somewhat!
Bubsy - at no BFP & no AF! Your body is giving you the run around heh?!! No temp drop yet though is there? If not, its all still positive! Keep positive mate! Now, I've gotta say to Mick, that you are supposed to start your Easter Weekend Projects at the beginning of the weekend, not the last day Bet you are excited though at the prospect of a brand spanking new kitchen!!! You'll have to give us progress pics like Jeanelle & JMC did while they were building
Bel - did you have a nice arvo in the sunshine?! hope so!
Morts - Are you finished all your cleaning & open house preparation??? I love the pic of laura - how cute is that duck &and handbag too! Hope you had a good day catching up with your family... no doubt more chocolate
JMC - how's bam-bam's ears today??? Hopefully ok. Sending you big ....
Ok. Going to bath my weary self and hit the sack early me thinks... Got work tomorrow - then optomitrist with nathan after lunch. The glasses are a sure thing - just gotta pick frames - which I'm not looking forward to. I am soooooo sad that my gorgeous boy has to wear glasses at such a young age...
Anyway thats a whole other whinge, so I'll leave it there!!!!
night night all, mwah mwah
Posted 09 April 2007 - 08:44 PM
Karen.. Poor Nathan! I hope that he is ok with his glasses.. I hope you are ok too..
Jeanelle.. What the hell is
Is it a frying pan?
Danielle.. how is your mum? i hope you are both doing well. Did you talk about you bro? Probably theraputic for you both. ((hugs))
Kylie.. Grats on the boy.
JMC.. I hope Reaghan is ok now.. Why would you let a 5 yr old on a quad.. I hope he is and will be ok..
Bubsy.. I hope you get that bfp.
We are very well! Thank you for your PMs and checking on us. thinking of you all!
Posted 09 April 2007 - 09:48 PM
Bel - Hi there! Hope you got some gardening done this arvo - it was a gorgeous day to be outside.
Kylie Bubsy - Oooh can't wait to see what your kitchen looks like when it's finished. How exciting!! It'd be difficult with no oven though. I've still got everything crossed for you to get a BFP.
Kylie 4forme - Had to laugh at your description of Daisy being hyper! Sounds hilarious!
Dan - Glad you had a nice weekend with your Mum. Hope you're feeling better after being so sick. Sounds awful!
Jeanelle - How are you going now? Hope you're doing ok.
Catherine - Beautiful photos of Amelia (as always!) I just love that little jacket she's wearing.
Kazz - Good luck at the optom tomorrow. Do they think that Nathan's eyes will correct themselves eventually or will he need glasses permanently?
Jillian - How's Reaghan today? Hope she's feeling better.
Well I'd better go and get our little chicken into bed. She's only had 30 minutes sleep today so is very tired.
Posted 09 April 2007 - 09:53 PM
How are we all.....completely over easter eggs, I know we are.
Morts - Love the pic of Laura and her easter pressies. Gotta love the bed hair look, huh? Oooo, an open home already. You will be out of there before you know it.
Kazz - Pebbles is doing much better today. She has had two very good nights sleep the last couple of nights and that makes the world of difference. Love the story about Nathie playing doctor....way too cute. Maybe he will be one in the future?
Catherine - Gorgeous pics of Miss Amelia. Gee, she sure has grown!
Jeanelle - Thanks honey. I hope things are going well for you at the moment.
Danielle - Sound like you and your Mum have had a wonderful time. That's great! I am sure Mitch was sad to see his Nanna go home, huh? Happy Birthday to your Mum!
Bubsy - What is your DH doing? On first glance I thought he was putting in stairs to an upper floor in your house. So are your getting a new kitchen or just the oven? Are you still looking to move house?
Bel - I hope you and Bree had a nice time in the garden.
Us - Reaghan is feeling much better today. Yay! The easter bunny (aka Mum and Dad) bought her a trike. Will take a pic and post during the week.
Exciting news.....Our family is going to turn from 4 to 5!!!!!
Nope I am not PG....We are getting a puppy or two!
Our next door neighbours dogs had puppies last Monday and we went over to see them today. They are pure bred Fox Terriers. Soooo cute. Of course bailey fell in love straight away and wanted one. I said we will have to go home and ask Daddy. Daddy took some convincing but eventually said yes! Bailey is beside himself with excitement. We have talked about getting two, one for Bailey and one for Reaghan. (Like a one year old needs a dog..... ) The puppies won't be ready for another 5 - 6 weeks and Bailey can not understand that. He wants his now!!!!! LOL! He has named his "Buster". Too bad if it is a girl. Anyway, DH has 5 weeks to ensure the rear of our property is doggie proof which involves quite a bit unfortunately. As you know we live on one acre. Oh well, we've got nothing else to do.....yeah right!
Oh just some more exciting and rather important news....we went for a little drive today and saw the new Homemaker Centre that has been built about 10 minutes drive from us.....guess what........WE ARE GETTING A SPOTLIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!
Ok enough dribble form me again tonight,
hugs to you all,

Kylie congrats on your little blue bundle in the oven there honey.
i should do more personals but im tired still from our busy camping weekend away on our land and have alot on my mind and am crying at the drop of a hat again so i just wont try to do them right now. im so sorry but hello and thinking of u all..
also quickly while i remember 'hey there bubsy sorry u got the BFN and have fun doing renos on your kitchen. i hated when we did ours. it was either eat at Inlaws or eat things that dont need oven/stove or anything. actually i cant really remember how we did it t wasa few yrs ago now..lol
bye all and i nearly forgot hope u all had a lovely easter
Posted 09 April 2007 - 10:31 PM
Jillian- I swear my breath held with excitement when you mentioned your family was growing. But hey even a puppy or 2 addition is exciting.
Posted 09 April 2007 - 11:23 PM
Clare.. Good you are doing the tourist thing. Hope you move goes well. Can we meet before you go?
Posted 10 April 2007 - 08:35 AM
Hope everyone had a great easter and got lots of chocolate
I personally have eaten too much. Well not much really, but enough that my psoriosis has flared up again So have to eliminate dairy and anything containing dairy once again
We have been busy over the long weekend, and so i didn't have time to pop in.
DH got me to box yesterday arvo. You know the type where someone holds pads and someone else punches them Anyway, must have done something to my back, because it is really sore. Have this pain shooting down from my left hip into my leg and my lower back is soooo sore. Couldn't sleep well last night because of it.
We have another inspection today. Gosh I can't wait till we own our own home. Hate this invasion of privacy. I know that they have to do it, because there are tenants out there that really trash places, but I am sick of these 3 monthly inspections. Just makes it feel even less like your home iykwim.
Anyway, enough talk from me
