OMG What a surprise

Ok let me start at the beginning.

I went to take T to netball on Saturday morning and K had a birthday party to go to on the same day but three hours later than netball but instead of coming home we decided to stay in town and do some shopping and then go to the party.

Well my lovely Sil rang me a couple of times that morning about computer swap meets and other things that I honestly don't remember because just getting phone calls from her is great ( we could talk everyday and still find things to talk about).

Any hoo we get home after the party to find M home sitting in his shed but the boys nowhere to be seen he then tells me that they are out fishing in the boat. I'm like" Cool" then he says I'm not sure if they have life jackets on though. I was not happy so I go to the boat ramp looking for the boat, ( the rules of the boat is that when the boys are out in the boat on their own they stay where we can see them at all times and they wear life jackets) so here I am looking for them and of course I cant see them anywhere I whistle a couple of times( they normally hear me when I whistle). Ok by this time I am freaking out worrying about where they are picturing them treading water.

Did I happen to mention that my Mum and Dad were due to arrive anytime from Melbourne?

Well guess what they turn up while I'm at the boat ramp, so I head home with the girls and greet them and give them lots of kisses and tell them all about what has been going on since I returned home.

Then I hear my youngest boy C yelling out to his dad about his fishing and I start running down to the boat ramp to rip shreds from them and tell them that they are never to go out in the boat again on their own.

I get down there and I see this other guy there and Im thinking who is that? Why is there someone I don't know near my boys and their boat?? Mind you their Dad is there tieing the boat up, and then this bloke turns around and its my big little brother!!!!!!!!!!

I scream "OMG what are you doing here????" and of course for all of you out there that know him you could imagine his tone " I'm fishing what do you think?"

Any way the kids where off the hook because Uncle Mot was with them and they had an absolute ball. He was only here for two nights but the kids followed him around everywhere and our oldest D was hanging on his every word lol.

I am so glad he came for a visit and he left this morning and the boys are going to be lost today not having him here to follow around lol. K will miss him too she woke up this morning saying "Wheres Mot"?

I'm glad he will be back in only 10 days with the rest of the family.

Thanks Uncle Mot

Our Beautiful girls

I had to post some photos I took this afternoon. I have a fantastic friend in town here that makes beautiful bead necklaces and she made some to go with the girls dresses for the wedding. The photo does them no justice as you cant see them that clearly but they have little purple butterflys with silver in them and they are divine. I got them tiaras from ebay ( love ebay) for only $2 each lol. They are so excited and I have hung them up in their rooms now we only have 15 more days to go.

My "Interview me" Questions & Answers


1. Leave me a comment saying "Interview me."

2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your weblog with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.Okay, here are your questions:

1. If you knew in advance you would be stranded on a desert island for six months and you could only take three things with you, what would they be and why?
You know this question is so hard to answer because I would like to say 6 months worth of alcohol but that would be more than three to begin with lol. I think my toothbrush, My Man, and sunscreen. ( My toothbrush because there is nothing worse than morning breathe, My man because six months with no children would just be bliss for both of us and sunscreen because we wouldn't want to come back as old pieces of leather lol.)

2. What is your all time top favourite book and why?
My all time favorite book would have to be "Misery" by Stephen King I thoroughly enjoyed this book the suspense and the story it was very believable I couldn't put it down. I remember I was a courier driver at the time and I used to read it stopped at the lights lol. Then they bought out the movie and I was so disappointed by it, it did the book no justice at all,

3. Do you still think you'll be blogging in ten years from now?
Most definitely

4. If you could change one thing (and only one) about the world we live in, what would it be and why?
Guns. I would make it that guns were never invented I know that guns don't kill people, people kill people but if they didn't have the guns then wouldn't that make it a lot harder???

5. Is there any one event that you think has shaped your life and if so, what was it?
Having children has shaped my life. I often think if I didn't have children what would I be doing??? You know its hard to even think what I would be doing. I think the relationships to get those children have also contributed I have learnt valuable lessons.

There we go folks, You know though Kylie I really struggled with the first one.
Now if anyone wants to try this out just ask me

I got this in an email and thought it was fantastic and had to share it. Unfortunately I can relate to a lot of it lol.

I've seen two shows lately that went on and on about how mid-life is a great time for women. Just last week Oprah had a whole show on how great menopause will be... Puhleeeeeeeze! I've had a few thoughts of my own and would like to share them with you. Whether you are pushing 40, 50, 60 (or maybe even just pushing your luck) you'll probably relate.Mid-life is when the growth of hair on our legs slows down. This gives us plenty of time to care for our newly acquired mustache. In mid-life women no longer have upper arms, we have wing spans. We are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, we are flying squirrels in drag.Mid-life is when you can stand naked in front of a mirror and you can see your rear without turning around.Mid-life is when you go for a mammogram and you realize that this is the only time someone will ask you to appear topless.

Life is when you want to grab every firm young lovely in a tube top and scream, "Listen honey, even the Roman empire fell and those will too."

Mid-life brings wisdom to know that life throws us curves and we're sitting on our biggest ones.Mid-life is when you look at your-know-it-all, beeper-wearing teenager and think: "For this I have stretch marks?"In mid-life your memory starts to go. In fact the only thing we can retain is water.Mid-life means that your Body By Jake now includes Legs By Rand McNally --more red and blue lines than an accurately scaled map of Wisconsin.

Mid-life means that you become more reflective...You start pondering the "big" questions. What is life? Why am I here? How much Healthy choice ice cream can I eat before it's no longer a healthy choice?But mid-life also brings with it an appreciation for what is important. We realize that breasts sag, hips expand and chins double, but our loved ones make the journey worthwhile. Would any of you trade the knowledge that you have now, for the body you had way back when? Maybe our bodies simply have to expand to hold all the wisdom and love we've acquired. That's my philosophy and I'm sticking to it!

Easter Time with the Brady Brunch

Well this is our first official Easter together and oh the joy of it all lol.
I went shopping today to get Easter eggs and I was walking through the centre with my trolley laden with Easter eggs lol. (I get the strangest looks from the people in the shopping centre)
Then had to leave the eggs with a friend in OPSM whilst I got the groceries from ALDI.
I must say though I picked the worst possible day to go shopping the shopping centre has just opened up a new section and its starting to look bigger and better almost like back in Melbourne for all my friends near my mum its nowhere near as your local centre but its almost to what that centre was originally lol.
I got myself a new pair of gold sleepers for only $19 from Micheal Hill jewellers and I had to laugh the lady says if they are for you, you should be looking at these earring s only $80 gold with diamonds, now as much as I would have liked them I said "No thanks I have 6 children and cant afford them at this time of the year and with a wedding to plan thanks but no thanks the sleepers will be enough lol"
It was fun though and new Gloria Jeans so can I get a decent cuppa now instead of Donut King lol.
Then I had to get back home because the kids had Easter Hat parade at school and that was fun to see and the effort some "children" ( I don't think a lot of kids actually made theirs) made is incredible some people have far too much time on their hands, maybe next year will be different for us because we wont be trying to save pennies for a wedding.
Oh well that's what been going on around here the wedding plans are going smoothly so here's hoping lol......................................
