Here is another thread for you all.

I have no idea who has problems with who, what goes on behind the scenes etc.

If ANYONE has any issues I can help with, give me a hoy...

All I am asking is keep any problems off the boards. You seem to have all been through a lot together, seems a shame that it is turning out this way.

With so many personalities on the net, and most of your communication being in the written form, things are easily mis-construed and taken the wrong way.

As I said, I have no idea of the issues, am getting bits and pieces from you, but moving forward, and leaving 'issues' behind may be the way to go.

Ok... Bel wanders off now.

Thanks.

Just redeemed my Gymbucks, over $650 worth for $190 including shipping! laughing2.gif

I still have $50 worth of Gymbucks if anyone wants it, that's if it's transferable now they know i've already used $150????

BRONZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And with that I am off to bed.

LIfe is so exhausting at the moment.

People came to look at our house this AM, so I had to get out for an hour with Adele + the two dogs, but the people didn't buy it sad.gif

The house looks great though now it is all clean and tidy. Everyone thinks we should sty here now it is looking so great.

Night all,
Cass

Hi again...

biggrin.gif

A new thread, and it's quiet!!  I am all caught up and that tired I can hardly think of anything to write.. LOL..so typical!

Rach - I'll try and remember to post about the Wii fit but in case I forget remind me after May 8th!!  wacko.gif

Cass - we need to get into our house before we put it on the market - just such a tedious job and not very easy with little one/s hanging of you.  Don't you feel great when your house is great?  I do.

All right, think I might head off to bed now.. night night.

I'm here Lara! original.gif

Well this morning we dropped DH at work and then went to Target to layby some things for Isabel's birthday. I laybyed her the butterfly quilt set (which is the same one Mell was talking about yesterday) and the matching cushions, book ends and bin. It is all very cute. I also laybyed her a doodlepro which will be for her birthday. I just want to get her a few other small things for her birthday. I think I will get her some Thomas things as she is obsessed with Thomas at the moment.. such a tomboy!  

Then after discussions with my friend Kat who was shopping with me we went to Priceline and I bought $50 worth of makeup (new foundation and a few lip glosses) and got a free bag full of makeup ($200 worth!). It is unreal. I was stoked.

Not much else going on. DH is outside mowing and the kids are playing. I might try to get all the housework done this afternoon (DH can entertain the kids), so that will free up tomorrow as DH is off to TOwnsville on Sunday til next Thursday night.

Lara - Hope you had a nice meet! Next week I will be there too!! original.gif  

Chaz - I told DH I want the WII console/sports & WII fit all for my birthday! laughing2.gif I said to him that if we buy it at tax time it can still be for my birthday laughing2.gif.  I am thinking that since I am turning 30 that $550 for a pressie isn't too much...  unsure.gif laughing2.gif Maybe it is a bit much but hey I want it! laughing2.gif

Better go, heaps to do as always! waves.gif

I'm here now too just got back from Mothers Group. It was good today because quite a few girls who I haven't seen for a while were able to come because it was school holidays.

Have bought Zoe home for a sleep and then we are going out to buy nappies and groceries so not very exciting! Our shopping centre is a disaster zone at the moment because they are rebuilding it (not that I am complaining) so grocery shopping up there is too hard so I'm going to go to coles for something different.

Zoe fell asleep on the way home from mothers group but woke up when we got home - sum total of 5 mins sleep! I put her in bed with a bottle and she is now singing! I have a very bad vibe today is going to be one of those no sleep days. Can't complain though because she didn't wake up until 9.

Lily has found a box of her 000 baby clothes and is walking around trying them all on, she looks so funny  laughing2.gif

I'm not sure what we are doing this weekend, it will probably be a quiet one due to spending so much time shopping the last week.



I've just been playing some of my old scrabble games, so if you see one pop up from out of the blue, that's why  dev (6).gif

Oooh thanks Em - Can you layby them at Big W? I know you can layby usual stuff but I was told you can't layby them at Myer?  Just cause I don't have the $388 to pay outright but I could find it if I could pay in instalments!!!! dev (6).gif  

So not motivated to do anything.. Might try to clean the bedrooms and bathrooms, then tomorrow I only have to do the main living areas...

Im here too, have an absolute killer migrane, have not had one like this for months. I am about to have a shower and try and have a sleep, but I feel so sick. There's no one home so Im scared of showering alone feeling this gross and dizzy  sad.gif

All I can say is thank the Lord above for daycare...

Oooh Nat - I adore the pics!! Kylie - Your kids are divine and I adore the pics of Lucy, Sam & Jackson!!! If I were still in Canberra I would book you... Maybe we should organise it in the future somehow.. I will have to put my thinking cap on!

Well not much going on tonight. I just did scrambled eggs for dinner - nice and simple and the kids love it.  I had a modified version - mainly egg whites and some diced vegies in it - much better WW wise.  It was still delish! wub.gif

Now am trying to get off my butt and get on the xtrainer as DH and I are going to watch "Death at a Funeral" tonight. From all reports it looks good! I really need to scrub my tiles and by that I mean on my hands and knees. I might try to do it tomorrow if DH will take the kids out for an hour. They are just gross, and normal mopping just doesn't cut it.  I need to get a cleaning lady and I told DH that when I start working I am seriously considering getting someone in once a week to just mop the floors and do the bathrooms - oh how nice it would be not to have to do that!

I have been looking at buying DH a 12 week Personal Training package at a training studio nearby.  He is so down about putting on weight and I really want him to feel better about himself.  I know he has abs under there somewhere. He is so fit in that he rides 30km each way to work but it is what he eats. I have told him rolleyes.gif but he doesn't listen. I asked him about it and he said he would definitely be keen but it costs too much - so I am going to try to save it and get him it for his birthday. So I will see how I go. It is about $40 per 30 minute weights session (this is full on killer weights though and DH loves it!) - so around $800 (as you get a big discount booking this package - this is 2 per week for 12 weeks, plus they do the whole diet plan etc and body fat measuring). So am going to talk to the gym and see what I can do about it!! Since DH is approaching 40 I think it would make him feel better as he is starting to feel old! laughing2.gif

Nat - Gorgeous photo's  wub.gif

Kylie - I know what it's like to wait for proofs, I'm so impatient, it drives me crazy waiting to see  laughing2.gif

We had yummy pizza for dinner!

Am playing Scrabble, c'mon you girls, go faster.... anyone else feel free to start a game with me if you don't currently have one  dev (6).gif

Well here's something that might get all you girls back into this thread....

First Response test approx 10.30 this morning.





Digital Clear Blue 7.30 tonight.



I am in shock.  blink.gif
And yes its for real.

We were planning on TTC in May or June, however, I assumed I must have O'd on CD11 like I normally do, we BD'd CD 14 then to my surprise I got definite O signs on CD16.

For the last week I have been very tired/lethargic, tummy has been very churned up/hungry/slightly nauseous, and chocolate tasts awful sort of metallic-y. Today and yesterday I have had the sore aching lower back (which I have had with all 4 previous pregnancies) and the clincher was this morning I threw up.  sick.gif

So it looks like I am due with #5!  ohmy.gif  laughing2.gif

Due around 28th December (great timing, tongue.gif  Jordans bday is 30th December, and Jacksons is 30th January, bubs will most likely come late around the first week of Jan)

Was gonna keep it a secret but I am hopeless.
Hoping I get some congratulations in here and not comments like "Are you bloody mad?" because that is the sort of things I am going to hear IRL from family etc, but thought my online friends might be excited for me at least!  biggrin.gif
Wont be telling family for as long as possible!

Wish me sticky thoughts, I am only 12dpo today. (3 weeks 5 days)

Congratulations Kylie - that is fantastic news.  I like the second test - no guessing with the lines.  biggrin.gif   All the best and lots of sticky thoughts to you.
