First Day of High School

Well the day has finally come.  Lucy is in high school.  She was so excited she woke up at 5.30 and was fully dressed fifteen minutes later.  I hope her enthusiasm lasts.


It wasn't until I loaded the photo's onto the computer that I realised I didn't get a decent photo of Lucy on her own.  Tess came out and wanted her photo taken with them and I got sidetracked.  Will have to try this afternoon lol.


Here's Lucy and Hannah they have known each other since they were about 3 years old.


Tess  and I had to laugh that Lucy is nearly as tall as Tess.

Happy Birthday Izzy

Tess let me down badly she was suposed to take a photo of Izzy and send it to me so I could post it here.  She was too busy having a good time and only sent me one which wasnt the best lol.

Anyway have a fantatic day Izz.

Happy birthday Tony

Tony reached the big 42, mind you he had to ask me how old he was lol.


We had a fantastic night.  Lucy and I wanted to go to The Grinning Dog, Maroochydore for dinner but we ended up going to Trader Dukes.  I had never been there before , what a great pub, very family orientated.  They had a girl signing and she was fantastic.  Not only could she sing but she was a real entertainer, we had an absolute ball.  At one stage Linda, Kim and I played percussion with her.  lolDSCF2352

How yummy does   this look and it was delicious , a little too much sauce on the fish perhaps  but other than that very  nice.



We finished the night up at Sonja's (she couldn't join us as she is in hospital) for cake and a cuppa.  Hope you had a great day Tony.

Leaving On a Jet Plane

This year it was Tess' turn to go to grandma and grandpa's place in Wagga.  Usually the girls go for a few weeks but due to ballet summer school Tess was only able to go for a week.  Last Saturday (17.1.09) she flew from Brisbane to Canberra where she met Jen and David then they drive to Wagga.  If she flew direct from the Sunshine Coast to Wagga it's either via Sydney or Melbourne and I don't think she needed the stress of changing planes.  Next trip she will be 17 so she should be able to manage that then lol.  She has been looking forward to this holiday for so long.

She is coming home tomorrow.


Here we are it's nearly the end of January, school starts next week not that I've been counting down the days lol.  We had a great Christmas, new year so I will just share some photo's.





We celebrated Christmas eve at Sonja's not our usual large dinner but a lovely evening  just the same.


Christmas was spent at Kim and Michael's place.  Kim did an amazing lunch ,  the food was beautiful. 


The kids did extremely well this christmas, phone's , Mp3's and lots of other goodies.  Tony scored a HD television and I got the much wanted butcher's block.


On the 27th Tony took the kids out to Kenilworth  Homestead joined them a few days later but I had  (and needed) a couple of days home alone.  This was a fantastic place to camp.  It has very basic amenities although there were a few cabins which I believe were really nice.  Great swimming holes and you are only a couple of km's out of Kenilworth.  The best thing we were only 20 minutes from home.





We really had a fantastic time.  We caught up with Brad and Gina who I hadn't seen for about 12 years and they only live an hour and a half away.

That's our Christmas we are slowly settling into normal  routine again.
