Ask the Leyland Brewins.......

well Monday we are off. Not sure how much I will be able to blog or whether I will keep up to date like all you other legends, but will try to post where I can & include photos. We will probably have limited internet coverage as we are going quite a ways inland. The girls and Anthony are very I am armed with some books, mags, good music and the anticipation of seeing some of this beautiful country of ours. It will definately remind me of my roots as I spent the majority of my life out on a farm in the west. I am excited that along the way we might find some little treasure spots where I can forage around. I am going to endeavour to keep a journal & take lots of photos. I am also looking forward to the solitude (well with 3 kids and all) and just getting back to simplicity. No hustle bustle, no toys, no tv (OMG how will I cope LOL) and just spending time together as a family. We all love cards and board games & books so I am looking forward to the chill out time. During this time Anthony is working at a single officer station, so while he is doing this we are just going to hang with him & not miss him like we did last time. There is a pool and a library in the town so we will find lots to do I am sure. Mmmmm maybe I could read my camera manual & catch up on all that........NOT!!! LOL
So catch you on the flip side.........hope to chat soon & watch out for my random posts!!! Take care, much love from my family to yours!!!

Get ready for a long post & heavy photos......

So it has once again been a while since I posted. So many things happening all the time. We are off soon on a month long adventure up north in our campervan. It is a mixture of a holiday & Anthony working!! He has done it before but on his own & we decided none of us wanted that this time so it coincides with the girls going on holidays so off we go!! I know that many people have been hit during these economic times so there will be no whingeing from me. It has been a challenge for me to make things stretch, do without & really think about what is important, what is a want & what is a need, hence the no blogging, I have been busy. Above all though is remembering that God is our provider and we just need to trust.

So the happenings in the Brewin we go.......

Eating lots of these with jam & cream.....(not good for my exercise regime but oh so yummy)

Lulu nearly cut her finger off...(Daddy was minding her & this is a long story need I say more??)Needless to say we are very blessed to have a paramedic in the house who quickly glued up the finger so we didn't need a visit to the ER!!

My Pop turned 80....

This has been happening quite a bit lately...

I go in to check on the girls & liv has crawled into Georgies bed down the other end. She is so cute, she loves being Georgies baby. I have really wondered about them all being in the same room but I am continually amazed at how much it just doesn't bother them & they are all so close. On the way to low maintenance girls....YAHOO!!!

Lots of other things happening too but will have to leave that for another blog post.
Happy Sunday.
