Interesting Week

Has been an interesting and Busy week.........
Netball practice on thursday night - gets frustrating on the weeks we don't have a game, cos out of 4 teams, we only had enough people at practice to field 2 teams!! Very annoying. So, of course everybody goes a bit silly and likes to play in different positions, so, was a waste of time really!! Oh well it's good exercise and helping me shed the baby blubber! I'm thinking about all my clothes in the wardrobe that I WILL get back into!
Haven't done any scrapping for a few days because I had to umpire at the Pedlar Cup (Under 15 Carnival) on Saturday. That meant no scrapping cos I needed to have some early nights with decent sleep or I would never make it through the day!! Was a very early start and was very Cold and Windy! Thankfully it didn't rain tho. The standard of play was fantastic and I really enjoyed the day. Ended up doing a Final too, so was pretty stoked about that! :-) Felt a bit strange, having lived in a few places on Eyre Peninsula, knew people from lots of different Associations - was great to catch up with them! And I bet I was the only umpire there who had to express Breast Milk during the day........ROFL!! I thought that was funny, anyway! Hehe. Totally worn out when I got home last night. Peter was fabulous - looked after the girls and had tea ready for us all too. Tyla helped a lot too, helping to look after Halle and playing with her. This was the longest I have been away from Halle since she was born, so was a big step for both of us. And, don't think badly of me, but I LOVED IT!!
A good friend from the SM Forum was visiting her family near where I was umpiring, so she dragged her hubby along to come and see me! That was fabulous, thanks Tambear,was great to catch up with you again and to meet your man! Looking forward to next holidays! :-)
And more netball stuff today - did the Umpire's Exam for Players. Only took about an hour and hopefully will improve on my score from last time I did it.
Had a bit of a sleep-in today - 9am!
Oh and Great News!! Halle has slept through the last 2 nights! Didn't wake up for her 2am feed! I think we've worked out to give her lots of food at night before bed........She is a real Miss Piggy atm, eats more than her 4 year old sister. And a lot faster too...........
It's raining atm, which is fantastic. It's been so dry here, the farmers must be really starting to worry, so this rain is very welcome. Let's hope there is more following.
Tyla had a friend over to visit for a few hours today, absolutely Trashed her bedroom. LOL, but they had fun.

Well, I have to say that I was really surprised to see that Ali nominated me!!
