Mel - I 'liked' her page! I love the Ikea chair covers, I was thinking the other day if Hannah is too small for the ikea chair???? Maybe something like her cover might help???? When did you start using the Ikea highchair with Tom??? Ewwwww Tri in the canal will be gross! My parents live in Noosa Waters and the water is ok in there but still I would not swim in it! ha ha ha.  I hope Tom is better soon.

I took Hannah to Speechie group this morning as my Mum was busy and she was a nightmare! She cried for most of it because she was tired and did not want to sleep in the pram or my arms! Grrrrrrr so I missed most of the group walking around the room with her. Luckily the Speech Pathologist was good and did all the stuff with Ethan still.

Sorry no more time at the moment, got some stuff to get done before the kids wake up.

Dylmah, I haven't always done them - last week was my first time.  Cyclone season must get pretty scary up there.

Bec - I've only been using mine for a few months. She does do padded ones for babies though.   Thank you for liking her page!

Bec - I used to take Mahalia to Dylan's therapy playgroup and had to wear her in the ergo. I spent many sessions walking around with her trying to calm her down. She now likes to participate in the group, so last term, I put her in FDC so I could concentrate on Dylan. It is so much easier with just the one kid, hey!?

Mel - That is really cool that you got such a great time for your first tri, and that you're going back for more. Perhaps a full face mask and snorkle is in order for sunday. We've only had one cyclone come close since we've been up here, and that was pre kids. I was all ready for it, but it changed course a few hours before it was due to hit Darwin. I'll have to get Sam to clean up the yard when he gets home on Saturday as he is due to sail on Monday.

Mahalia's just woken, and isn't sounding happy.

On Ab's and stronger pain killers ... fingers crossed for some recovery by tomorrow as I have a 3 hr massage/spa package to enjoy.

Just not up to posting much else.

Hope you and your little one's are good.

Sharna Maybe the spa package will help.

Georgia & Mel we were in a cyclone when we lived in Darwin, back when I was about 5 or 6. It was only a category 2 and Dad was outside taking photos  ohmy.gif .  Also in an earth quake whilst up there.  When I was flying there was a cyclone coming towards Cairns, but we took off from Bris anyways.  We were just about to divert but had one more shot at landing, got in - in a window of clearer weather.  the only plane to get in and out in about 4 days and man was it bumpy.

Mel Good luck on your second short course this weekend.  Have liked and tried to suggest to friends but FB keeps sh*tting itself when I do that

AFM DH has gone to LA and will be back on Wednesday.  Will slept in my room last night.  While I am putting Olly to bed he runs into his room grabs his pillows.  I say time for Will's bed and he says Will's bed is in Mummy's room.  Too cute to refuse.

Feeling slightly better this morning, just tired. Aidan woke and fed twice overnight which is a little unusual for him. Might be because my supply is down a little due to not drinking as much water. Nadia woke at 0530 this morning and wouldnt go back to sleep. Really need to get darker curtains... on my list of things to do tomorrow i think. Still got the CBF's to do much else today.

Spa package was a gift from my sister. One of those Spreets daily deals and it needs to be used by monday. I am looking forward to it.

Night out? Anyone ready to make a firm date?

Mands - I wish Nadia would sleep in our bed.. what i mean by that is if I bring her into bed with me she seems to think it is playtime and wont sleep. Plus because Aidan is in the room with us also (WIR... haha, Nat has seen the set up!) she wakes him with her noise. Must be nice though to have someone to snuggle up to while Danny is away.

Nat - Nadia is sleeping really well in her day bed setup but we still have it against the wall so she cant get out. Are you going to get CR a proper single bed?

Cyclones - I think I have been through about 5 or 6 bad ones. Winifred, Joy (Christmas Eve) and Larry are the biggest ones I remember. I grew up in Babinda/Cairns.


Gotta try and do some stuff around this house this morning. Dan has been really good the last few days cooking dinner and helping with the kids but he generally sucks at washing, folding, sweeping etc.
