Princess T turns 9

Well it turned out to be an overcast day and not too hot which was great and everyone had a great time. Of course she got totally spoilt with her gifts and loves them all.

The thing I love about T is she genuinely seems to appreciate it when she gets a gift.

We didn't take photos of when people were here as we were having too much fun and too busy lol. But I did take photos of T as she was opening here gifts.

Havin a pool party

I have to laugh I think I have been watching Blues clues far to much I cant get Steve out of my head singing "We're having a pool party, a pool party" Lol. Yes I should not have the tv going that much.
Our daughter is having a pool party this coming Saturday with a couple of friends over and their families so I had to get the family into the cleaning mood.

So yesterday I had enough I am sick to death of walking outside and finding paper everywhere and wondering how much more paint the children can put onto the glass table. Whether we can finally mow the grass and not have to see broken toys laying all over the backyard anymore.

So after finally convincing the children that if we clean up the yard then go for a swim it would be better because then we could relax. Well it took a while but we finally got it done. The kids started off helping but then it got too hard and too hot and then the whining began.

This is the finished product with DH on the decking and the kids in the pool. Now I just have to keep the pool from going green before then lol.

I am still here

Okay I know I haven't been here for a long time but I have been busy!!!

I have had a birthday yes I am another year older and still no wiser than before??? The baby chickens are doing well and not looking so cute anymore??? OK they are still sort of cute but they are looking bigger lol and still not used to being carried around all the time???

Let me see what to complain about first???


OK we have only had the pool up and running since September and in that time it has been green twice and $700 worth of chemicals later it is finally looking sparkling clear. I never realised exactly how much work goes into a pool. I mean I had an idea but truly didn't realise that I would be the one doing all the work, in saying that though I am the one that is more concerned about things than my dear husband is. I am the one that must get all the leaves out of it and the one that tests it all the time lol. Just another chore for me to do???


I have had my mobile phone for almost two years with 3 mobile and I have not had a problem I am on a great plan and I almost always get service, but my mums phone was on my plan and until I got her off my plan I had to keep the phone I have. No my phone has been a great phone but ....

It has been in the toilet, been dropped a hundred times and no longer stays open when you flip it open? So I thought now mum is off my plan I can get a new phone.

You would think so but NO!!!!!! I am still not eligible for a new phone. My mum (who had had her phone for less time than I have) is entitled to a new phone? The worst part is though that I can t change phone carriers because then I cant ring my mum and sil for free and being interstate from them I need this . So I have to suck it up and wait until my contract with this phone is completed and then upgrade for free!!!!!
OK enough complaining now I feel better.
I should be cleaning the house but I have come to the conclusion that the kids will be home in 3 hours and mess it up again so I will let it go and wait till they go to sleep and then clean the house that way it will stay clean for at leasts 8 hours lol.
Mum and Dad get here soon not sure when though I told them that I want it to be a surprise so I just know its after the weekend.
OK I promise I will be back again soon...........................
