Hopefully I don't get gazumped while posting!

Nic - I can't believe it is taking that long!  Can you maybe keep calling once a week so they at least know you are wanting the spot.  Honey you sound exhausted!  How are things going with DH?  A couple of weeks should be good, I'm sick at the moment and keep knocking back work which is driving me nuts but what can I do if I'm not up for it!

Yes Gina where are you too?

LOL Julie!  Sorry, I don't have much to say these days.  I mainly post in my TTC groups on EB atm, don't want to spill all that talk on you guys!

We're all ok here though.  I've had a busy week catching up with friends which has been nice original.gif  Babysat my friend's 3yo this morning, then made enchiladas for lunch when friend returned to pick her up original.gif

Boys are all well *touches wood*

I'm here!!!  Like Michaela, I'm not really up to much therefore have nothing that interesting to write!!  Although Michaela, you know that if you ever wanted to talk about anything you can here!!!  I don't like to pry so I don't ask but honestly, let us know where you're up to with TTC cause I'm interested!!

Scarlett is being babysat by MIL for the first time for a few hours tonight while Brett and I go to the movies!  It'll be the first time she is looked after but some one other than Brett or I so I'm quite nervous although it's only for 3 hours max so I need to get over it!

Ah times up, Scarlett always seems to know when I get on here cause she just woke up!

Michelle - hope you enjoyed your outing!  How nice that your MIL babysat.  

Michaela - what Michelle said!  

Went to a friends house in Newcastle for yesterday afternoon, getting back this afternoon.  It was lovely!  Had a great time, kids were good.  Another close friend is moving her family up there too - it will be very, very weird!  No more coffee drop ins nno.gif
Just a quickie, I need to blow dry Aurora's hair.  Poor thing is getting an exzema flair up, weird cold/flu things are still going on in my house.  Very frustrating, but alas we aren't the only ones.  Can't sit at home forever and quite a few of our friends that went for dinner last night have been the same.  Never mind.  Have work 3 days this week so will be on tomorrow night.  Catch you all later. waves.gif

Awwww  hheart.gif  Thanks you two wub.gif
Michelle, any time you're interested don't be afraid to ask original.gif  I don't mind original.gif  I'm 10dpo today, tested BFN.gif this morning and got myself depressed about it *sigh*.  BUT it was only 10dpo after all, and only on a cheap not sensitive internet bought test.  So I shouldn't have tested really.  I shouldn't write this month off just yet, but it did put a downer on me this morning!

That's about it for now!

Hi Girls, got home yesterday. Nice to come home, was getting bored and missing my family in hospital. Others would say I'm crazy for not taking more me time, could have stayed until tomorrow but I'm happy to be settled in at home now original.gif.

Labour was quick, drug free, no stitches or tearing. Got to hospital just before 2am, Ava was born @ 3.38am. 2nd stage labour was 8mins with min pushing, as soon as my waters broke my body took over and my little girl was coming OB or no OB LOL!

Hi there

PING PING PING congrats and the most beaut name.

Sorry I have been MIA last week was one of sick family all of us. Robert finally broke through a top tooth what a drama that was poor bugger. He is in a VERY bab mood back to his normal smiley cheery self now.

Lily has growing pains and trouble makers as friends, I don't like 11 year old girls much they can be nasty. She has been a misery guts and taking it out on us.

Rose is okay. Daisy average. Tyler needs a holiday.

Pretty busy I am doing a course this week, trauma and children. I think about where my life is going and can see more clearly now. To hint my mum is a social worker.

Tyler had words with his father, very civilised. FIL said Robert "Wasn't his grandchild" (Fair enough, but sad) Tyler said never ever say that in front of him. FIL babbled some crap about how they were still getting used to us fostering. Such a pile of crap, like we needed to ask permission. We didn't ask permission to have our own children. They are just so not there but that is fine see them rarely now lol.

It is damp and cold here in Adelaide so haven't been to the van. Have made all new curtains for it and am going to make cushions.

Michaela i don't care if u spill your guts. I am happy to listen/read/talk on facebook etc.

Julie I have don't have any dropper inners anymore they all work or our friendships has broken up (differing values is what it boils down to and I don't like deliberate nastiness as a sport IYKWIM)

First of all - welcome home Ping!

Secondly - cross fingers Michaela, you never know honey.

Thirdly - happy birthday to me, someone broke into my house while Damien was home sick, today!!! rant.gif Nothing was taken and nor was Damien in an aggressive situation.  Feeling pretty upset.  Bloody hell, I have always felt really safe where I live, friendly neighbourhood - lots of people home through the day.  Hell, the people across the street were outside gardening!

That sux Julie horrible feeling I know. Our first home was broken into a few months after we moved in, Tyler disturbed them so we were lucky. Do you want Damien taken?

#17 ~JASB~

Posted 15 June 2009 - 09:23 PM

Oh bugger Julie!!  That's so annoying!  I remember when I was about 10ish our house was broken into - by our next door neighbour of all people!!  He was so skinny that he climbed in thru the cat flap wacko.gif  Over the road neighbour saw them, called the police and they were caught in the act.  It was horrible knowing some moron had been through our stuff.  hhugs.gif  I did giggle at Gina asking if you wanted D taken wink.gif

Gina, thanks original.gif  I'm feeling pretty weird about it all right now.  Just feel sick in the stomach about testing.

Ping, welcome home original.gif

Jules - so what happened - did the intruder see Damien once inside?  Ohhh what an awful feeling....  luckily nothing taken but still - the attempt!  

Michaela - big hugs and best wishes....  this must be the worst part of the month for you  ssorry.gif

Ping - can we see a pic of your beautiful little girl??  How are J and S with her?  And Malcolm??  Hope you are keeping well and yes I think you are crazy coming out early!  I was begging for one more day (although I had to leave after 3 nights - 1 of those nights I was in labour  oomg2.gif )...  

Just thought id share a link to Ellie's naming day invite - one of the talented ladies here did it for me and gosh she looks adorable!


Cant believe Im planning her 1st birthday!  Time does fly!  Expecting my ph call from Tresillian on Thursday so fingers crossed although she did sleep through last night  ddance.gif (Im not going to tell them that though just in case she reverts back whilst Im on the waiting list)  ddoh.gif

Gotta run - just realised I have to make a dash to the gp this week sometime - Ellie and Aiden are having their allergy testing done at RPA next week and we are supposed to have a referral from the gp - lucky they send reminder emails out  unsure.gif Going to get Aiden's 4 year old needles whilst Im there... AND if its still avail - I may as well get the free whopping cough vaccine - might be easier if Aiden sees mummy getting a needle first  dry.gif

Michaela I am sorry  nno2.gif

Nic lovely invites I have mine all ready to go for Robbie. His party is on the 18th we have had namings for the girls on their first birthday we won't do that for Rob but will have the girls each say something about our darling boy. Maybe a poem about acceptance and looking outside the box you are in may be appropriate  roll2.gif My invites are leaflet size pale blue with a translucent sheet on top a star pin holding it together and a star punch through both layers.

So you didn't answr Julie did you want Damien taken.

Gina xx

Michaela I'm sorry, I just want to give you the biggest hugs.  Be kind to yourself today.

Julie how worrying and Damien was very lucky that the theif wasn't nasty.  I know excatly how you feel aswell.  Our cars have been broken into 3 times this year, nothing stolen (they were looking for Brett's work keys) but I feel so targeted and our lovely little community that we live in is tainted.

Gina how sad that you in laws haven't been very accepting.  Your invites sound lovely as does the party with the girls all speaking, make sure you take plenty of pics and share them, I want a squiz!

Nic I love your invites too (Ellie is soooo cute!)!  Between you and Gina I feel so slack with Scarlett!  I've invited people over the phone and her party is 18 days AFTER her actual birthday as we were too slow oranising it!

Good luck for Thursday, hopefully they can get you in ASAP although wouldn't it be fab if Ellie makes a habbit of sleeping through between now and then!

Ping welcome home!  Your labour sounds wonderful and you sound so happy!  Please share some photos!

Nothing new here.  I have a mountain of washing I'm avoiding so probably should get on to that while Scarlett is asleep.

Oh Nic, Ellie is just gorgeous!!! Anymore sleep throughs for her??

Michaela, big hugs for you. No doubt you miss your lost babies  cry1.gif, a big hug for all of them as well.

Julie, that's scarey. Glad Damien is ok.

I've just popped a few pics of Ava on facebook.

Ping she is marvellous and your two other beauties take my breathe away. xx

Posted 18 June 2009 - 10:49 AM

Ping, I already replied to your photos in FB.  She's just beautiful, seriously beautiful wub.gif

Thanks girls for thinking of me on Tuesday.  Wasn't the best day, but I'm doing much better now.  My day is about to get really exciting ...

RELLE IS ON HER WAY HERE!! eexcite.gif  ddance.gif

I didn't even know they were in the country till she rang this morning to ask what I was doing today roll2.gif

Michaela - glad you are feeling a bit better.. honestly I have no idea what to say other than it sucks  ssorry.gif  really and truly sucks.....  2 1/2 years of TTC - geez Im not sure Id have your strength  nno.gif  but in the end it will be worth the long wait and all the heartache but Im sure you realise that  tthumbs.gif  and a big hello to Relle too!  Where on earth has she been???

Ping - yes we had 2 sleep throughs this week but unfortunately it just doesnt last or remain continuous  cry1.gif  but there is light at the end of the tunnel - Tresillian phoned today for our "phone chat"  and we are booked in 15th July for a 4 night stay  ddance.gif  yes its still a few weeks off but I am also on the cancellation list....  The 15th July actually works in really well for us considering its school hols - DH will have time off work and spend it with the boys so all in all its a win win situation.  The lady could hear the desperation in my voice and delved into some of the other "issues" surrounding Ellie  unsure.gif  

Anyway feeling much better after that - I can cope for another 3 weeks knowing there is help on the way....  

We were at the gp this morning - Aiden had his 4 yo needles and was great!  I had the whopping cough vaccine (and I was very brave too  tongue.gif ) and we got our referrals for our allergy tests next week at RPA  oomg2.gif  god I hope Aiden has better results than last time...

OK whingey baby ready for bed!  Catch up soon
