well it had hit our place & of course I wasn't sick. I don't get sick very often then Thursday, it hit me. Yep sick as & have now lost my voice, now this is the bigger tragedy!!! The last two times I have been sick I had car accidents. Perfect record for 16 years then bang.......once when we got our new Subaru (WRX) nonetheless & 4 days old (3 years ago) then another 12 months ago in Ant's truck. Both times I was quite sick & was saying to myself it was idiocy to go out, but with kids when you need milk you need milk. Hence no car accidents, just NO VOICE. So before then I was cleaning up my scrap desk (which since then has become my own room) yes I now have my own space with two tables!!! Can you believe it. After I got over my feelings of selfishness etc of putting all the girls in the same room, I am actually really enjoying it. The laptop has a place in there & Ant just comes in & chats to me, plus my guitars are now out so I have easier access!!! It is just really nice. Mmmmm maybe I will pressure myself to start outputting some stuff!!!??
So here are before & after photos........
since these photos I now have my sewing machine & as I said Ant has put his laptop in there (which I am secretly hoping will become mine soon) *grin*
we moved the table out from the pergola into here as in winter we don't eat so much outside near the pool but rather inside, so thought I would make use of it. I also have space if someone (namely Britt) wants to come scrap we can!!! The girls are loving their room & after a week or two they have settled down & we don't have a riot before we go to bed with giggles, talking & roll on the floor laughing. They are sooo funny.
I had an awesome Mothers Day & although Ant was on night shift I was on strict instructions to just relax. We had our family McBrewins (as Georgie calls them) our own healthy version of McDonalds Muffins, coffee, oj & all the trimmings. The girls were so beautiful wanting to spoil Mummy. They had a stall at school & the girls both had +$5 to spend (this is what the school worked out)it was so delightful to see what they picked. Georgie got me scented candles & made cards & a keyring, Lucia picked me a beautiful necklace (with jewels of course) & made me a fridge magnet. It was so beautiful, I was quite teary that they had gone to so much effort.
then Ant couldn't let it go by without a present so he got me this....
I felt really spoilt. Also Ant went on his first field trip with Georgie & her class to visit the Dinosaur Museum in Brisbane. The teachers were so excited that a father was coming (must be unusual), I was very happy that he takes the time to spend with the girls (plus it was his turn anyway *grin*) here is a couple of photos, not great but hey at least he took some right???
Georgie with her little friend Jenna. She is a lovely girl & I am glad as this year she got separated from all her friends into the other class. She is so social though it didn't seem to bother her. They had a great day & this post has become mammoth so be back soon with some more catchups. Me xxx
