Hi everyone

Thank you for Gracie's birthday wishes and a big huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all the other big three year olds!

We had a "little" party for Gracie today - of course I am shattered - but she had a ball! She & Tommy are currently fighting over all her new presents.....

Terri - by the time you get this hopefully you are feeling 100% better!

Paula - any day now - will definately be lurking for news...

Chenoa - cravings???

Troops - hope you are doing OK...

Rebecca - he'll start sleeping longer - any day now I hope! He is such a cutie though - you and your DH definately make beautiful boys! How is your MIL going??

To everyone else - huge hugs & kisses - must go and attend to screaming children...

Aww shucks Nadine! wub.gif Thank you.....but at least I know have my trusty laptop!

Not staying long - just wanted to say that I am currently in Wollongong Hospital (that has THE best wireless signal going!) sitting around waiting for an operation that will be done next week.  sad.gif

I have a blocked bile duct - and the procedure can't be done til next week sometime - so I am stuck here - but I have had a couple of lovely visits from some gorgeous friends wub.gif

Anyway take care all and keep this thread going - even if only for my light amusement!  wink.gif & I want to hear of babies being born dammit!

Paula: BD harder! roll2.gif

Oh no Terry, hope you're not in much pain while you wait (great that you have internet access though! Lol). Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Do they just do the op by keyhole surgery?

Sam - yes, shocking cravings but I caved and un-did months of hard work sad.gif I'm trying to be understanding with myself but very disappointed at the same time. So the little party didn't end up staying 'little'?? laughing2.gif All for a good cause, let's not forget that our big girls and boys will have more chance of remembering everything that happens now they're 3 wink.gif Our birthday festivities are in this coming week. I can't wait to see Jasper's face when he sees the bike he picked out in a catalogue in January! original.gif

Must run, hugs to all

Terri - rest up...bbighug.gif bbighug.gif

Chen - don't be too bad on yourself....ohh you better get some pics of Jaspers face...are you having a party for him?

Sam - glad Gracie's party went well

I picked up 8 Thomas the tank trains today for under $40 - 50% off at myer and an additional 10% with myerone.  Hunter is getting some sets for his b'day and some for Christmas.  I'm looking forward to his b'day too.  We are going to bake cupcakes Monday to take to childcare Wed (got to do them Mon as Hunter is in CC tue and he enjoys baking).  Friday, his actual b'day I'm taking him to the Fairies and Sunday is his party, lunchtime with 16 adults and 10 kids.  Still got to organise that laughing2.gif

Happy 3rd Birthday to my little Miss Zahli!!

I can't believe she is 3 already....it doesn't feel like it was long ago that she was turning 1 and 2. These year's are just flying by so quickly... I wish someone could slow it down a little.

It's just after 8am here in Perth... and she hasn't had her pressies yet....I am not sure whether to wait til Shane is home tonight.. or give them to her now. It seem's unfair on both parts, her having to wait....and Shane missing out. I will at least wait for my mum to wake up.

We have gotten her just a few things... only because they have so much already... but with being at mum's... there isn't an area that is just for toys...iykwim...no toy room. We have gotten her a dora pop up tent, a big barbie plane, a couple of carebears and a my little pony amusement park thingo lol.

I asked her this morning what sort of cake she wanted....and chocolate it is lol.

We were going to have a little party for her....and still might.. but with me working on saturday...and sunday.. my parent's have friends over for lunch.. so that counts out having something here. So we thought of going to an indoor play centre..but my parent's wouldn't be there... my bestfriend wont be there either...and a few other ppl are busy this sunday. So we will organize something for a few weeks time.


I am so p*ssed off at Xavier's school it isn't funny. On tuesday they were having their sports carnival and the kindy kids were ment to have a running race first thing..but because it was raining...they cancelled it. They told us that it will be at 230pm.. if it wasn't raining. They rang at about 130ish and said that they wont be having it.. because it was still raining. Anyways, take xavier to kindy thursday morning.. playing some puzzels etc... pack away time.. the kids sit on the mat and his teacher says "ok boys and girls, we are having our running race this morning" I saw red!!! They could have let us ****ing know.... so that I could have taken my friggen camera...video camera...Shane's mum and my mum were going to come and watch.. so they missed out to. It has really upset me.. because he is my first child..and it was his first running race... and now I have nothing to remember it.  sad.gif  aannoyed.gif :cries:

Shane has gotten some contract work for this week only.. working at some place where he has to sort rubbish  sick.gif (paper, batteries etc) not food stuff. coz they turn the paper etc into fertilizer... the other day he saw a big black vibrator LOL and some hard core porn hahahahha. Hopefully he will  get some more work in the next few weeks.

We have our block YAY... settlement went through on monday.

On my photography front.... A friend has asked me to shoot her wedding in october next year...and she would like a pre-wedding shoot at the end of next month. Really looking forward to it.

Terri- I hope you had a good night rest..and hope you recover fast.

Happy birthday to all the kiddies I have missed. Hope you all had lovely days.

Thinking of you all

Hi all

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZAHLI!!!  Have a great day!!!

Kat - there is heaps of FIFO work going on up here at the moment.  If you like I can PM you a few companies that seem to be employing at the moment.  Awesome news on the block.  Not so good about Xav's running race tho... I think teachers sometimes overlook the importance of certain things to parents.  

Terri - good to hear from you... hope your not in too much pain.  

Becca - sounds like you got a great deal on the Thomas train sets... good work!!!!

Back to work for me!!!!

Hi everyone,

Well we just got back from a 6 night holiday in Yamba - it was excellent.  Doing lots of washing etc now but had to come and check if we had any baby news yet!

Jess had a great birthday will put up photos on fb at some stage probably tomorrow.

Hope you are all having a good week.

Terri - hope the op goes well and you don't have too long a recovery period.

bye for now

Kat - grr I would be so annoyed too

Paula - bummer you are still waiting....

Hunter got his first certificate today and of course I didn't have my camera.  All the other parents had theirs for the giving of the certificate shot, but I had mine last week not this week...It was his last session of sportybots, he did t-ball and rugby this term.

hey Mandy that would be awesome.... his old work here in Perth..before he started doing fifo....found out he was inbetween projects atm....and have rung him up and are dying for him to come and work for them for a few weeks.. or until he find out when he has to fly out. So he has gone there now..and is going to be asking the for $40 an hour casual....if they want him as badly as they do.. they will pay it.. coz he knows his section inside and out..and the person that took over.. still isn't doing it properly. They have a big contract with Rio Tinto.. for a trial conveyor system in perth...somewhere....and shane was the one that made all the belts etc. lol... can't really make a conveyor with out any belts lol.

Sooooo quiet in here lately!!!!  

Paula - baby news?????

ETA - I am on CD32 now, we weren't TTC this month and I was sure we BD in a "safe" period but I am now about 3 days late, so I tested this morning and got a  BFN.gif.... I was feeling a little nauseous this morning and I have been having some weird kind of crampy feeling. The worst thing about it, is if I am not pregnant now, then this extended cycle is going to stuff up my dates for next cycle. I should have been ovulating around the 8th October, my good girl dates are 1st to the 10th of October, so I am seriously going to be cutting it fine. ...............  aaaarrrgggghhh, sooo confused!!!

Paula - just pop that baby out would you? Tounge1.gif Hope you aren't going too crazy waiting...

Kat - fingers crossed for S to get some more work. And how exciting on the wedding... they are stressful, but fun!

Happy birthday to all our little 3 year old, and also my little chubba bubba, who is one today! Birthday week has been nuts, as well as all the other general life stuff, but it's a good kind of nuts!

I'm in the process of adding people to FB too, if I can find you!

Have a great day everyone!

Bad night for us...Hunter awake from 12.30-2am and Savannah 2.30-4am.  DH ended up putting S into bed with me as she wouldn't settle...I've been co-sleeping everynight and trying to get out of it, but nope, it's settled in now.

Edited to say -
Mandy - ahhh so frustrating isn't it....TTC should be easy, but nope!  I hope you get AF soon so you can O at the right time.

Happy Bday to the big 3 yo's I have missed!

Paula - Big hugs luv I am sure you have tried absolutely everything to bring this baby on?!!

Hunter was so tired after 3 nights of waking from midnignt for about 1.5 hours - crashed at 4.40pm at childcare yetesrday.  Woke brifely when I picked him up at 5.10, back in bed by 5.30pm and slept until 5.40am!  Then this morning he split his lip, 3 little splits...and is currently having a nap as he was up so early.

It's his b'day tomorrow and I'm taking him to the Fairies.  

Party on Sunday - supposed to be 13 and raining.  wE have 16 adults and 10 kids and a SMALL house - eekk...I'm scared!  We were supposed to have everyone in the back yard.

Paula - sorry to hear that.  HOpefully something happens over the weekend so you can avoid the c-section.

Hi waves.gif Just poking my head in really.

Mandy - did you do a test today?

LWD - love your pics on fb...gorgeous kiddies!

Bec - Thanks for the birthday wishes for Jasper! He had a good day. original.gif  More pics than you ever wanted to see from 1 single day on fb. Lol  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HUNTER FOR TOMORROW!! ddance.gif Just in case I don't make it in, have a great day! Lol at him going to the Fairies...that's cute! Jasper loves butterflies so he had a butterfly cake this year! biggrin.gif It's so sweet that they love what they love! ha ha  Hope it's a nice day for his party!

Terri - hope you're not in too much pain now...naughty naughty not telling hospital you were still in pain wink.gif

Paula - is that because of bubs' size? Oh hang on...is it because it's dangerous to induce with vbac? I tried for vbac and ended with an emergency c-s with Gabriel...I can understand what you're feeling about maybe not getting a chance xx

Hi Donna and anyone else I've missed (on fast reply) wink.gif We're doing ok...DH has a job interview on Sat in Canberra. Is anyone here in Canberra? laughing2.gif
