Our Week So Far

It's been an interesting week so far.......LOL..........let me see!! Peter tried to kill a big spider on the wall in the dining room over the weekend, it fell off the wall and disappeared - we looked everywhere and couldn't find it! On Monday Tyla was playing with her playdough at her table (right under where the spider was), stuck her hand in the bucket with all the accessories in it and SCREAMED and leapt accross the room! Yep, you guessed it - the spider was in the bucket, even though Peter had emptied it and looked all through for it! Tyla was very freaked about it, so I sprayed the inside and put the lid on and let the poor spider die (very slowly I am sad to say). Then we looked on the internet to find out what kind of spider it was - a banded huntsman. Tyla then said to me "I'm alright now, I know what it is"! LOL, that was very funny.........anyway, one dead spider and a very clean bucket of playdough accessories!
We were getting ready for tea Monday night and I asked Tyla to put her shoes in her bedroom. "No, I don't want to", was her reply (as usual). So I said "I don't want to cook tea and do the dishes and wash and fold the clothes either, but I still do it"! Quick as a flash and a very straight face, she said to me "Don't worry Mum, Dad can do it"! ROFL, Peter and I cracked up!! Our daughter already has a clear vision of men helping with the housework!!
Tuesday morning about 3:30 Halle woke up (about 2 hours later than usual) with a raging temperature - her head was burning up! I cooled her down and put her back to bed, but she kept waking every half hour or so. Gave her Panadol throughout the day. After I picked Tyla up from Kindy, took Halle's temp again and it was over 40 degrees!! Then I looked and noticed a red spotty rash all over her body. Took her to the hospital and the Dr checked her out. No infections or anything he could see - the rash isn't the kind to be worried about, she has a virus! Isn't that what they always say when they have no idea what is going on?? Anyway, I din't work last night cos she was very sooky and wouldn't go to anyone but me. She had another very bad night, but is much better today. Still got the rash but normal temp and is eating again.
Oh, and today, she crawled down steps for the first time! She was very proud about that! She was very happy crawling around outside at kindy (we had a meeting) until a little boy poured dirt all over her! LOL she wasn't too impressed with that.
AND AND AND, last night I printed off a photo from a friend on the SM Forum that I am going to scrap for her, picked out the papers and accessories and am planning to scrap it tonight!! Ya-ay!! I might actaully have some scrapping to show off soon!
Patiently waiting for my new SM Mag to arrive in the mail and also waiting on a big photo order from Snapfish. About 500 pics, so Tyla and I will have fun putting them in the albums. Found out today that Insurance won't cover the replacement of the Oven at our house (where we used to live that we now rent out), so have to work out what we are going to do about that, cos we cannot afford a new oven. Damn Insurance...........But can't expect our tennants to live without an oven either.
And that's about it so far this week!! If you've read this far, thanks! :-)

What a Waste of Time........

Well, I spent about 3 hours last night trying to work out how to post a slideshow from Photobucket onto my blog as a Page Element. Looked at all the help menu options, and just went round in circles. Anyone have any ideas???

Lovely Day

We have had a lovely day today! I slept in 'til 10am!! Thanks Peter for organising the girls so that could happen! The weather was great so we had a barby in the back yard and the girls played on the swings and Tyla did some gardening with her dad.
Both sets of Grandparents phoned today, was lovely to hear from them. When they asked Tyla what her dad had been doing today, her reply was "Nothing major"...........LOL, cracked me up.
Have done some more tidying, organising in my craft room, it's amazing how big the room looks, when you can see the floor............ Almost ready to start creating!
Peter hasn't been feeling too great today - was playing with Tyla last night and she managed to knee him in the face, very hard! So, he has a lot of pain in his sinuses and quite a bad headache.
Grey's Anatomy finished tonight. Haven't been too impressed with this season, but the finale was pretty good............made me cry just a little..........

We WON!!

Saturday 21 June, 2008 - 22:52

We had a win, Yaa-aay!! Considering we had 3 of our regular players out this week, we did very well. Leading up until the 3rd quarter break, when we were down by 1 goal. We turned it around in the last quarter and won by 4 goals. It was a great quarter, the crowd was really loud and cheering and the atmosphere was great!! Wish we could play like that all the time. It was very overcast, but alas, no rain (which is great for playing netball, but not so great for our farmers).
Not doing very well with my AFL Footy Tips, who'da thought Roos would beat Hawks?? And the Power have another loss........ Tyla has the highest score so far this week, LOL!

I Made It...............

Friday 20th June 2008
Well, I made it this far, so will keep going! My own BLOG, whatever will happen next!! Now I just have to make sure I stay reasonably up-to-date with it! the first thing I need to do, is get a decent pic of myself.....funny thing that, cos I'm always the one with the camera.
So, this blog is going to be about my family and our lives and hopefully also a place to show off my scrapbooking and my photography. All a work in progress...........LOL! And that means that I better actually start some scrapping, and very soon. A friend is visiting on Wednesday night while DH is at Darts and we are planning to do some scrapping. Woohoo, my first crop night in our new town and new house!
We moved here at the end of January, so we are still settling in and making friends. Tyla is at Kindy and loving it, so she has probably settled in faster than any of us. Halle is too little to care atm LOL! As long as she has Mum and Dad, she's happy (well, most of the time)! The smile on her face when I walk in the door is awesome, it just melts my heart.
Playing netball tomorrow, after a couple of weeks off. Hopefully we will do alright, we won against this team last time we played them. I'm playing GA, for the first time in about 6 years, really looking forward to it! Only playing tomorrow - no cooking for the club kitchen, or scoring, or timekeeping, or umpiring, Just Playing. That is so rare, usually got at least 2 other jobs to do, will be GREAT to be able to watch some of the other games.
So, now I say goodnite. Thanks for visiting and call in again one day!
